Is alternative medicine a cornucopia of wonderful remedies ignored and
suppressed by the medical establishment?  Or is it a clever marketing
concept, Orwellian linguistic trick that gives instant
pseudocredibility to worthless snake oils and mystical nostrums?
	
	Does the rapidly-growing acceptance of alternative medicine represent
a positive paradigm shift, as proponents claim, or a form of mass
delusion, as rationalists fear?

	Because the media have behaved like a gaggle of obedient lap dogs to
alternative medicine, the industry has had a free ride for more than a
decade.  But now the sacred cow piñata of alternative medicine has
been cracked open.  All the sacred cows within, the scores of medical
cults that make up alternative medicine, will be exposed to the light
of  rational inquiry by health care professional, educators, students,
attorneys, insurance adjusters, and the general public.

	The debate will finally begin in earnest.  National distribution of
the video and participation in the writing contest associated with it,
ensure that alternative medicine’s free ride is over.  The industry
will find it harder and harder to win by default because no one is
paying attention.

	The best viewer feedback to the video, both pro and con, will be
published in a book titled, The Alternative Medicine Debate Book.  A
minimum of $2,500.00 in cash prizes will be awarded, half to writers
on each side of the issue.
