Description
Is alternative medicine effective? Does alternative medicine help fight disease? What role should alternative medicine play in health care in the United States? These three questions provide the crux of this collection of pro versus con essays. As young readers get to exercise their right to self-determined health care, they'll want to know that there are alternatives out there to big Pharma, conventional medicine, and the rising costs of conventional treatment. The viewpoints are selected from a wide range of sources and publications, which allows your reader to activate higher-level critical thinking and reading skills. Is homeopathy or acupuncture effective? Can alternative medicine cure the cancers? Can Chinese stem cell treatments help cure childhood blindness? Readers will find out answers to these and other important questions.
