520    In this groundbreaking analysis, over thirty of the most 
       popular treatments--acupuncture, homeopathy, aromatherapy,
       reflexology, chiropractic, and herbal medicines--are 
       examined for their benefits and potential dangers. 
       Questions answered include: What works and what doesn't? 
       What are the secrets, and what are the lies? Who can you 
       trust, and who is ripping you off? Can science decide what
       is best, or do the old wives' tales really tap into 
       ancient, superior wisdom? In their scrutiny of alternative
       and complementary cures, authors Simon Singh and Edzard 
       Ernst also strive to reassert the primacy of the 
       scientific method as a means for determining public health
       practice and policy.--From publisher description.
