Alternative Medicine: Acupuncture

Just watching a BBC2 documentary on acupuncture. The primary exhibit is a girl undergoing heart surgery without a general anaesthetic. Certainly sounds interesting, yet…

Although sedated by drugs, and her chest numbed, [the girl] will go through the operation conscious.

Ummm…sedated by drugs, and her chest numbed (presumably by drugs), but it’s all done by acupuncture. Oooook.

I’ll reserve judgement on this show until the end šŸ™‚
