Over the holidays I spent about two weeks in China visiting family. While I was there I decided to venture out into the city to find myself some traditional Chinese medicine and to see if the prevalence of pseudoscience was really as bad as I have always assumed.
If you head over to the JREF’s Swift Blog you can find a chronicle of what I discovered, along with many interesting pictures of the experience (who doesn’t want to see a jar of dried scorpions that you are supposed to turn into a broth and drink for your health?).
In the USA we take good health care for granted, so give yourself another perspective entirely and take a look at the state of medicine in China (or at least my take on it).
