Rates about a hundred alternative medicines, systems, and methods from -3 (worst) to 0 (neutral) to +3 (best).

About the Author

I grew up on Molokai and in Kailua (Oahu), Hawaii, and now live on Maui. I earned a B.S. in physiology from UC, Berkeley and an MS in nutrition from the University of Hawaii in Honolulu. I am a rationalist, anti-health fraud activist and defender of free speech and due process. I am dangerous to government criminals and criminal governments. My nonfiction books and one novel (Barbarians in Paradise/Terror Comes to Maui) reflect these interests.
