Canada to Rigorously Research Alternative Therapies

You already know that NIH has a Center for Alternative Medicine which funds research. Some money is spent for cancer research-much of it used to be out of Texas. (See the links for more information). Here is some news out of Canada:

This is from the Natural HealthLineŽ newsletter for December 1, 1999:

York University Calls for Rigorous Research Into Alternative Therapies (York University) -- The Centre for Health Studies at York University has completed the first nation-wide, comprehensive study of the state of complementary and alternative health practices in Canada calling for rigorous and expanded research on alternative therapies, a national public education strategy, and collaboration rather than confrontation between conventional medicine and alternative practitioners.
