Two sides to alternative medicine story

Pulse has a good reputation for even-handedness and an unbiased interest in complementary and alternative medicine, so I was rather surprised that you have given Professor Edzard Ernst two whole pages for a number of weeks.

This allows him to present his version of the clinical evidence of complementary medicine, based on his selective desktop studies, personal opinion and his own interpretation of data.

I am concerned that by awarding so much space to Professor Ernst, without any debate or comment, you appear to endorse views and conclusions that are not shared by the many GPs who find complementary therapies so useful in their practice.
