02. video of the week link [not to pun]:

the University of Bridgeport states in "Health Sciences at UB" [vsc 2010-08-01; posted by UB to Youtube 2010-07-01]:
#healthscienceclaim #naturopathy #acupuncture #
"[from the video] health sciences at UB [...shows] Health Science Center [building signage x4...and ND] Brady [...who says] we're not the typical health science division [and manages to look like he's constipated or had a pine-cone stuck up his ass...and it includes] programs from the other side of the spectrum [...] wellness, holistic, complementary medicine [...and we're show the title] College of Naturopathic Medicine Doctor of Naturopathic Medicine (N.D.) [...and an ND student talks about] true naturopathic medicine [...ND] Skowron [talks about...ND] D'Adamo who wrote the blood-type diet book 'Eat Right For Your Type' [...and ND] Espinoza [...who says] to be successful as a naturopathy [...] you need a good foundation and that's exactly what UB offers [...] a very good foundation [...ND student Hickson talks of] a miracle [...] you come back to nature and I guess what it is to be human [...DC Goode says] we have this health sciences program [...including] naturopathy and acupuncture [...and says] our focus is on evidence-based healthcare [...description] find out why UB is one of the premier Universities in the country for a degree in the Health Sciences. We offer programs in Chiropractic and Naturopathic Medicine [...and] Acupuncture. UB is also proud to announce our new, cutting edge Physician Assistant Institute, which is now accepting applications for the Fall 2011 semester."

Note:  oh, so much to talk about!  Overall, this fits into the whole 'reversal of values' which naturopathy epitomizes.  There's the science and evidence subset naturopathy and acupuncture claim.  There's this claim of a "foundation" that is "good", and a setting that is "premier".  Just to cut to the quick, briefly: it is quite obvious to me that naturopathy labels the hugely science-ejected (archived) falsely science, at the core of naturopathy [the science-ejected defining vitalism at UBCNM, the academic and marketing label science placed upon that; which I've beaten to death on this blog].  So, what kind of "good foundation" is that?  For instance, here's UB's vitalism, archived and obviously the video above is replete with that science label.  Since when is what is hugely false good?  Only when values are absurdly reversed!  One though needs to KEEP THINKING, to cut through their current sophisticated camouflaging, wherein the science-ejected vitalism of naturopathy is not explicitly contextualized though we were told the school teaches "true naturopathic medicine."  And regarding that ND D'Adamo theory, it has been panned [hugely, preponderantly]: "the consensus among dietitians, physicians, and scientists is that the theory is unsupported by scientific evidence."  I think, to stick such academically within "health science", therefore, is quite repulsive.  Falsehood and manipulation: now premier, now good.

*I also have to disclose that I attended this UB ND program for four years.  I was either taught by or I shared classes with some of the NDs and instructors in this video about ten years ago.  I left, disgusted for many reasons.  One such: required homeopathy, that huge area of figmentation that the North American ND board exam requires and quite absurdly labels "science".

 and the reversal of values marches on.
