Alternative Therapies for Cancer: Separating the Wheat from the Chaff
This is an expanded version of a talk I gave at the 1999 Center for Mind Body Medicine alternative therapies conference* on how to choose the best and most appropriate alternative therapies and is based on the slides I used with my talk.
The presentation is optimized for 1024 X 768 resolution. If your resolution is lower, it is hard to see enough of the diagrams and explanatory text at the same time, although you can probably manage at 800 X 600. Most people’s systems can display 1024 X 768, but some people use lower resolution so that fonts will appear larger. You may discover that it is better to use the highest resolution you can, and specify larger fonts in both your browser and your operating system because that way you will get the most detail possible in graphics while still being able to read text.
All but the first page are divided into left and right frames, where the left frame is a diagram, and the right frame is text explaining it. If you don’t see the entire diagram, you can move the bar between the frames to make the left frame bigger so that you can. This should only happen if your resolution is less than 1024 X 768. If it is more than 1024 X 768 then you can adjust the bar so the text window is larger and you don’t have to scroll as much.
Oh yes – before you start please note that links to material outside the presentation – to other pages in CancerGuide, and other sites will open in a new window.
