Friends of Science in Medicine 2016 - 'Acupuncture is a Theatrical Placebo'

here, bad news for Chinese medievalism:

001. Friends of Science in Medicine just published "Is There Any Pace for Acupuncture in 21st Century Medical Practice?" (2016) which states:

"acupuncture has been studied for decades and the evidence that it can provide clinical benefits continues to be weak and inconsistent. There is no longer any justification for more studies. There is already enough evidence to confidently conclude that acupuncture doesn’t work. It is merely a theatrical placebo based on pre-scientific myths.  All health care providers who accept that they should base their treatments on scientific evidence whenever credible evidence is available, but who still include acupuncture as part of their health interventions, should seriously revise their practice. There is no place for acupuncture in Medicine";

 hear, hear.
