Steven Shapiro's personal point of view in the last paragraph should be the first paragraph because that is the most essence of his article. Placebos are to have no therapeutic benefit- however, it is known that everything does have an effect on the body in some manner. Placebos are thought to impart effect because of the suggestion that it will benefit the person taking the substance. It points out the dramatic effect that the brain has in directing hormone and other production reactions in the body. Labeling has become ridiculous when one considers that often it is not true as stated in the disclaimer. Hopefully we all make health choices with the intention to prevent disease and sometimes specific ones. Intention is a major part of the reaction to which the body responds. Intention is one of the most important dynamics in gaining health.

Is anyone suprised? BTW. There's a new disease,and you have it. But guess what, I have a pill for it, but you have to take it forever. Yup, sounds about right.

Kemper and Hood have made an important contribution with their analysis and the publication of these results. They have provided objective proof supportive of what many of us have been observing and saying, anecdotally, for years. James
