There are some who believe acupuncturists play the role of “Angel of Death.” If those needles are placed in exactly the right location… bam! The end!
A few years ago, a woman died during acupuncture when a needle pierced her heart.
This story is actually true, and repeated over and over by acupuncture skeptics. What most fail to mention is that the woman died giving acupuncture to herself. She had no experience with or knowledge of acupuncture, and she inserted a needle into her chest cavity, causing a cardiac episode.
