Last month I blogged about the apparent bias of Wikipedia against complementary and alternative medicine (CAM).
For those who are interested in the area, CAM supporters have now hit back with a Wiki of their own – Wiki 4 CAM.
Wiki4CAM, they say, has been started to provide the Complementary and Alternative Medicine community its own space, where it can build its knowledge base without any undue skeptical diversions. This is a pro-CAM wiki and we invite the practitioners of various alternative medicine therapies to join this movement. A wiki is all about community participation. Your active involvement can make this wiki the most exhaustive and authoritative source for complementary and alternative medicine.
While many of the main therapies (acupuncture, TCM, herbalism etc) have relatively comprehensive entries some of the more obscure ones (unani, magnetotherapy, isopathy…) either have very minimal entries or do not, as yet cite adequate references or sources, but no doubt they will soon be fleshed out as the site develops.
