"If the government won't fund science that might contradict its own guidelines wrt nutrition, then the free market will need to fund its own science, as NUSI is doing."

Couldn't agree more...and you can extrapolate that to the rest of the alternative health industry...not just nutrition. But ultimately, what is a free market "verification" going to achieve? It will still be scoffed at by critics in the western medicine world. Still be called "anecdotal" without the "real" science backing it up.

Even so, i'm definitely in favor of it.

The important point, however, is that we are able to utilize what treatments we want to...whether it be pharmaceuticals, vitamins, herbs or other supplements...whether someone thinks they are effective or not.
