You will find plenty of "testimonies" claiming they were cured by praying. So what?

Yeah, I'm ignorant about many things, but you ignorant as well (as was pointed out by Copa).

PS I was wondering how much you are "getting kickbacks from the drug Alternativie companies for pushing their poison potions", huh?

Evidence or recant it please. Most medical doctors in the US get absolutely no financial gain or compensation from pharmaceutical companies.

I know a orthopedic surgeon who makes over a million a year. I know a neurosurgeon who makes 3, probably closer to 4 million a year. I also have a great friend I've known since I was little who pulls over a half million a year selling used cars. I've got another friend from high school who started a bunch of porn websites in the mid 90's. I don't know how much he makes a year, but the dude buys a new Maserati every year and owns 3 Ferraris. Do you see you've made a complete non sequitur here?

To keep this on topic, why don't you show us the evidence of acupuncture treating bacterial (specifically lets say meningiococcial) meningitis. Or maybe your herbs?

I have commendations from Gullianni ,Dinkins and mayor Koch ,for bravery ,valor ,and excellence ,in the line of duty .

That is undoubtedly commendable, however a topic like this shouldn't be about appealing to one's credentials or fighting over who is the most qualified, if an argument being presented is sound then it will stand on its own strengths.

Reeling off personal achievements to maintain a position of authority in a discussion shouldn't be necessary.

Yes (see my above post for more info as well). In the US we have about 3-4,000 cases of meningiococcial infections a year. Are most common serogroups are A, Y and B, IIRC. Even treated meningiococial meningitis (well really all bacterial meningitis) has a mortality rate somewhere between 10-20%, which is scary high. Think about that, that means that even despite aggressive medical treatment potentially 1 in 5 people that get it will die anyway.

Ifink, iirc, parts of Europe have larger problems with group B than we have here in the states. And I remember that in other parts of the world meningiococcial infections are as high as 17-20 per 100,000 (vs the 1-2 per 100,000 we have in the US).

So yes, this is a good thing and will save many lives. I just hope it gets licensed in the US. The FDA is pretty stingy about licensing vaccines developed in other countries here, even ones in the EU and even ones with lots of evidence supporting their use :no:

Thanks. It's quite refreshing to find in this thread someone who has replied to me without sarcasm, insults, or a general tone of 'the guy I'm replying to is an idiot' throughout the post.

It is especially annoying when it comes from someone who constantly shows they have no earthly clue what they are talking about no matter their credentials.

Apparently, there isn't much. Just hot air, and nothing substantial.
