The $350,000 questionnaire from NIH

The $350,000 questionnaire from NIH – Genomics, Evolution, and Pseudoscience

Let’s see: if you could get $350,000 from the government to develop a questionnaire, does that seem like a good deal? What if the questionnaire was designed mostly to ask people if their “qi” was balanced, or their “prana” was improving? Apparently, we don’t have enough surveys of patients asking them these vital questions, but never fear: NIH’s National Center for Complementary and Alternative Medicine (NCCAM) has money to burn.
