In Do You Believe in Magic?, medical expert Paul A. Offit, M.D., offers a scathing exposé of the alternative medicine industry, revealing how even though some popular therapies are remarkably helpful due to the placebo response, many of them are ineffective, expensive, and even deadly.Dr. Offit reveals how alternative medicine—an unregulated industry under no legal obligation to prove its claims or admit its risks—can actually be harmful to our health.Using dramatic real-life stories, Offit separates the sense from the nonsense, showing why any therapy—alternative or traditional—should be scrutinized. He also shows how some nontraditional methods can do a great deal of good, in some cases exceeding therapies offered by conventional practitioners.An outspoken advocate for science-based health advocacy who is not afraid to take on media celebrities who promote alternative practices, Dr. Offit advises, “There’s no such thing as alternative medicine. There’s only medicine that works and medicine that doesn’t.”

Score another for science over superstition and pseudo science. This is a clearly written, well-researched book that gives us some straight talk on certain spurious health claims. It focuses mostly on the science behind supplements (which is not much science at all). People rail against the big pharmaceutical companies while unaware of how claims about supplements are often dead wrong, and in many cases criminally misleading. Your tap water is more highly regulated than the vitamins you buy. This book reveals a vast corporate empire-not around pharmaceuticals, which are, ironically, highly regulated and subjected to rigorous scientific testing, and describes the political machinations of the nutritional industry to keep us from learning that-in the case of most supplements-the emperor has NO clothes.
The truth is pretty clear but the supplement industry does not want you to know it. Read this book to find out how and why
Galubel
This is a well documented book. The bibliography is as long as the text of the book. It goes through the history of snake oil past and present, attempting to explain why and how human beings are tricked into giving away their money and their health. He rightly explains that complimentary and alternative medicine is nothing more than unproven and wishful medicine. As soon as scientific studies are done it becomes part of mainstream medicine if it works, or should be discarded as garbage if it does not work.

Recovering from a tick-borne illness for the last two years. This is the most important book I have ever read, and I have read an embarrassing number of books in my lifetime.

Great read if you've been confused about all the hype concerning taking multiple supplements. This comes from a doctor, who isn't selling snake oil and has no ax to grind but just wants to let the public know how much money is being flushed down the toilet in our quest to live forever in virtual youthfulness. Get educated and start saving your money. If some of these "natural" supplements really worked, don't you think Big Pharma would have jumped on it by now????

Dr. Offit spoke volumes and these few pages. I’ve long been frustrated by the alternative medicine movements for the very reasons he described in this book. A close relative of mine was obscenely bilked by naturopaths as she desperately fought terminal cancer, so I have trouble being objective with the alternative medicine community. This was an excellent read showing the research why some things work, why some don’t, and how to avoid being taken by a

Interesting read giving reader lots to think about. Shows both sides of this story between modern medicine and alternative Medicine.

Excellent book. Absolutely wonderful response to the mythology of alternative medicine which I really appreciated. Well written and incredibly interesting.
Very engaging writing style. Cites a vast array of evidence showing that scientific evaluation of treatments is our only hope of evaluating the effectiveness of treatments and ensuring their safety. The author is tireless and courageous in taking on a financially powerful industry that hopes to keep people in the dark.
