“If acupuncture needs to have more studies conducted to determine if it works then why is it being used until we have conclusive results? Ethically this is a problem. At what point do we conclude that there is no legitimate evidence? If results of acupuncture use are no better than placebo then why use it at all? Placebo can not do anything other than affect pain and mood. It can not cure disease.

“"What is expanding and contracting energy?"
Seriously? Wherever fundamental dualities are observed, and there are sort of a lot of them: hot-cold, light-dark, day-night, summer-winter, male-female (physical characteristics), inhale-exhale, nucleus-electron shells, Big Bang-black hole (or whatever the concentrated point of the universe is called before the big bang). If scientists actually have discovered right or lefthandedness in the universe or a DNA molecule, the ancients are nodding their heads (metaphorically) in agreement.”
