    Surgery no better than placebo - doctors are superfluous

    A great article that should give a serious food for thought even to the most ardent defenders of allopathic medicine.

    The return of morphogenesis in medicine

    Ray has written quite a bit about biological fields (as opposed to mechanical / genetic dogmas) and their relevance to human health and disease. I have been noticing quite a few new studies popping up in the last few years, but these two caught the attention of the general public and are now...
