A few years ago, the journal Neurology published an article about chiropractic , and issued a press release about it. It is my understanding the Journal of Neurology had never issued a press release before. Why did they decide to do that with the chiropractic article? Because they want to sow the idea in the public’s mind that we’re unsafe.
Why did they do it? Because people who go into medicine generally care about their fellow human beings. They don’t want to see harm come to people due to ignorance, misinformation and pseudoscience. So they did what they felt was best in order to do what doctors do - help people.
I think I’ve answered the original question the best I can.
Yes you have. Your answers and your discussion is appreciated.
Now may I ask you 3 questions - not counting this one!
1.) Do you believe chiropractic can effectively treat non-musculoskeletal diseases?
2.) Do you believe in the germ theory?
3.) Do you believe vaccines are generally safe and effective?
Nothing insulting about the questions, I’m just trying to get a grasp of where you personally stand on these issues, since chiropractors vary wildly on these issues. For the record, my answers to the above 3 questions are, “No,” “Yes,” and “Yes.”
