Their criteria seem a little biased toward not recommending treatments and telling the public not to worry their pretty little heads about illness, but how much do I love that they applied the same standards to non-medical interventions and listed "patient time" as a cost of meditation therapy? Overall, some interesting stuff, and it's about time someone called the media on their reprinted press releases posing as stories.
