Acupuncture for breast cancer story left out past study findings



Healthnewsreview

 Our Review Summary
The story focuses on a recent study published in the Journal of Clinical Oncology that finds female breast cancer patients who use acupuncture therapy in conjunction with “enhanced self-care” had fewer problems with hot flashes than patients who used only enhanced self-care.
The story does a good job of explaining the study’s design, and includes an independent source. However, it fell short when quantifying the benefits, and it did not discuss potential harms or the already existing body of work related to acupuncture’s use to ameliorate hot flashes in breast cancer patients.
