PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Emily Rosa was the youngest person to publish in a major medical journal -- †he Journal of the American Medical Association.

She used the scientific method to test a claim of an alternative health treatment called Therapeutic Touch (TT).

Her experiment showed that TT could not work as claimed. The TT community fought back.

This case and its accompanying projects draws the distinction between good science and bad science through proper use of the scientific method.

And it shows the difficulty we all have with evaluating the so-called "scientific" claims of alternative medicine and treatment providers.
