Another Chinese Myth Exposed

#1
So once again all that Chinese mumbo jumbo is exposed. For years we were led to believe that Kung Fu worked and that has now been exposed as a fancy dance, now it is the turn of Acupuncture. Yet still there are thousands of people being taken in by this. I was just watching GMTV who were highlighting the exposure of the myth and they have been inundated by people saying it worked for them. Quotes like "It cured my back pain." or "It helped me to stop smoking."

I have to say, we really do have a lot of bone heads in this country. People need to understand, the last useful thing to come out of China was gunpowder, they used it to make things that look pretty - we used it to conquer.

Feng Shui has become popular in the west in recent years, channelling luck into homes and businesses after expensive makeovers. If you study the 4500 years of abject misery that make up Chinese history you really appreciate just how effective it is, but obviously, it only works with bad luck.

It's started to work here in the west now, just read your paper.

In china the poor are given acupuncture and herbal remedies. The rich get western medicine.

The definition of alternatinve medice is "IT DOESN'T WORK" If it worked it would just be medicine.

I was just being fecaetious... no way am I getting drawn into a debate about kung fu but I wanted to show my disdain for such a blatantly wind-up comment.. besides, it's the naffi so I though it would suffice.
I'm more of an angry white pyjamas type.

Very true. They can be found watching GMTV and quoting it as a definitive authority on <insert subject/issue here>.

You'll no doubt be an expert and standing with your legs wide open and punching fresh air whilst counting to ten in Japanese.

Amateur Volunteers eh?

Just how do you come to the conclusion that people who are amongst the most highly paid in society and amongst the best educated of people on earth are amateur volunteers?

Try f o l l o w i n g the link = then try reading the words, if you have problems with the big words... ask a friend for help. :lol:

Fucking win.

Anyone who thinks Kung Fu works - watch the kung fu masters get double-legged, slammed, pounded and submitted.

And as for all the 'OMG but ther are liek DEADLY moves that r sekret and you cant do them in MMA!!!111'...I'll believe it when I see it. They said the same thing about TKD. Oh and if we're going into the realms of self-defence, anything goes fighting, there's another thing that exposes Kung Fu as fancy dancing. Ladies and gentlemen, I give you: BAS RUTTEN

Sound advice. Like when your own source says HERE:

Main Results said:
...Overall in these trials acupuncture was associated with slightly better outcomes and fewer adverse effects than prophylactic drug treatment...
The big words mean, 'worked a bit better than western medicine'. Not a good idea to post sources which undermine your own argument. :wink:

Cheers friend... there are hundreds of articles and you would have to take an overall view of the research rather than quoting from one article.

The overall view is that compared to a placebo, acupuncture is a bout 1 percent better at treating illness - overall.

However, if the fake chinese cure works one percent better than a fake pill, then clearly it's not worth my tax money going into funding it.... and that is happening.
