How much money would you spend to prevent critically ill people from getting treatment?

If you’re an American, your tax dollars go to support research into quack remedies rather than legitimate medical treatment. So how does that prevent people from getting the help they need?

Biomedical research funding is falling because of the nation’s budget problems, but biomedical research itself has never been more promising, with rapid progress being made on a host of diseases.

That’s from Change.gov, a Web site set up by the Obama transition team to allow people to suggest priorities fr the new administration. This is from a proposal to stop funding the National Center for Complementary and Alternative Medicine, the division of the National Institutes of Health that investigates nonsense claims.

The site allows users to vote up or down, so go to support the fight against antiscience.
