Prince Charles' Report on CAM Called "Purely Political"

The war of epithets continues to rage with a UK scientist labeling a report on complementary medicine commissioned by Prince Charles as "purely political."

The slam, reported by www.scotsman.com news, observed that some have called for a public debate on the safety and efficacy of complementary medicine.

The UK report described cost-effectiveness savings from CAM therapies based on several case studies. The report also argued that CAM therapies should be covered more widely by the UK's National Health Service.
