Questioning the medical establishment: a letter about migraine

Last month one of the top US medical journals, the Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA), carried an article on the prevention of migraine. Although this was billed as being a summary of information about treatment options that are endorsed by the US government this didn't appear to be true, and moreover acupuncture was missing. Acupuncture is one of the very best treatments for preventing migraines, and is even recommended by NICE for use in the NHS, so we thought that it was worth writing a letter to the editor. In the event, they chose not to publish it but we reproduce it below, to give you an idea of the various arguments and to encourage others to take up their pens when they think there is a case to answer.
