Bruce Levine's critical article about treatment for depression appears in Skeptic after HuffPo tries to spin and then kills it

It seems HuffPo will feature deconstructive work on corporate-dominated medicine, but not if it includes challenges to its alternative darlings (in this case, ECT, which is only "alternative" in the sense that today it's not in the medical mainstream, though it was in the past).

Levine gives the background here. You can read his piece - "Depression Treatment: What Works and How We Know" - in Skeptic or at his site.

(I should note that this shouldn't be read as an endorsement of every argument he makes in the article or in his book.)
