The Future Of Medicine.

Martin Jacques looks forward to what the rise of China will mean for the world:
Chinese traditional medicine, based on principles very different from Western, will become widespread across the globe.
Oh I hope not.

All part of the new 'throw her in the water to see if she's a duck' syndrome. Great times coming up.

Bloody hell. As if Gordon Brown wasn't enough of a threat to world stability, now this!

It has long struck me as a curious coincidence that traditional Chinese medicine is regarded as "valuable and holistic corrective to the dehumanising reductionism of the western medical system" upto the exact moment when it requests a few few gonads from endangered species, at which point it gets dismissed as mystical mumbo jumbo once more.

The Times baffles me. Why does this neo-Marxist wanker, and that other ex-commie tosser, have regular columns in the paper?. Are Times readers all closet Marxists or something?

David Aaronovitch is the other commie tosser I was referring to.
