The Vitalism of NZCC - 2011

Dynamic Chiropractic reports in "Dr. Eric Russell to Assume Presidency of New Zealand College of Chiropractic" (2010-12-30)[saved 2011-01-19]:

"source: New Zealand College of Chiropractic [NZCC...] Dr. Eric G. Russell is the new president of the New Zealand College of Chiropractic, becoming the first Chiropractic Philosophy diplomate to be named president of a chiropractic college. He is a 1996 graduate of Palmer College of Chiropractic [...] 'the New Zealand College of Chiropractic has a great reputation for supporting vitalism throughout the curriculum, rigorous and innovative academic instruction, and progressive subluxation-based research,' said Dr. Russell."

Note: so, NZCC is vitalistic in context just like naturopathy.  I'm not sure it's so great to be associated with an idea that is LONG-GONE from science.  Of course, the science-ejected nature of vitalistic figmentation is never communicated to the public, and, in that sense, they are abused.
