As one would expect with a group that includes a naturopath, a chiropractor, and an array of health professionals, arriving at consensus on harms and risks of CAM was described as “challenging” as the group was noted to have “diverse opinions”.
This presumably resembled the Python “Dead Parrot” Sketch.
It's meta, so it is allowed.
