ABSTRACT
The article reports that health fraud persists as a serious public health problem in part because of the failure of leaders in medicine and public health to speak out against the promotion of irrational healthcare methods. Douglas P. Zipes, president of the American College of Cardiology wrote an essay calling for cardiologists to be open-minded about patients' use of practices that have come to be known by the acronym CAM.
