The BCA’s decision to sue Simon Singh will be a disaster for the profession

It would be funny if it was not so tragic for the chiropractic profession, and the BCA leadership will not have the sense to call off their dogs. On the other hand it could turn out that the BCA council knew exactly what they were doing and their action was deliberate so chiropractic sceptics...

GCC begin defining a biomedical scope of practice using the sceptic complaints as cover

The UCA should be telling their members chiropractic is not a treatment for any condition, chiropractors correct spinal dysfunction (subluxation) with a spinal adjustment and the adjustment may...

BCA and GCC member David Byfield would seem to concur with Simon Singh that the BCA were making bogus claims about the efficacy of chiropractic

Many of the statements made by Simon Sing and Edzard Ernst about chiropractic in their book “Trick or treatment” could have been lifted from David Byfields report and testimony in the GCC V Jesper Jensen case in 2002. I have always believed the Jensen case was brought by the GCC in an effort to...
