Ridiculous decision, thankfully now reversed
The American Academy of Family Physicians took a similar line on this
issue as did the American College of Physicians at its annual meeting in
April. Fortunately the Academy has had a change of heart and has now
agreed to host the No Free Lunch exhibit(1), (albeit next to an exhibit
promoting the qualities of Californian wine).
It is saddening that the Academy seems to have been blind to all
logic and reason in the first place, and only arrived at this decision
following an outcry from its members and other health professionals.
