Alternative medicine debate at The Atlantic

Over at The Atlantic, one of my favorite monthly magazines, there's a feature article by David Freedman in which I'm quoted at some length, titled "The Triumph of New-Age Medicine." As readers of this blog might guess, I have some disagreements with the title and with many of the points in Freedman's otherwise very well-written piece.

Rather than blogging about it here, The Atlantic invited me to post a response in an online debate they are having. My response, which just appeared today (June 16), is titled "A 'Triumph' of Hype Over Reality" and you can read it here. I encourage you to post comments at the Atlantic site.

Several more experts' responses will appear on this page at The Atlantic over the next few days, if you want to follow the debate. I know I will.
