I stumbled across this and found it very interesting. In 2012, less than a year before he passed away, movie critic Robert Ebert wrote an article asking his readers to, "Tell me about acupuncture."
Mr. Ebert had just reviewed a documentary movie, "Escape Fire: The Fight to Rescue American Healthcare." In the movie, a man experiences a great deal of pain relief from acupuncture treatments. Mr. Ebert was diagnosed with cancer at the time was experiencing significant shoulder pain. He wrote, "...do you think acupuncture holds any promise for me?" and "Give me your best advice. Have you tried acupuncture? Has it helped?" The comments are the usual blend of opinions you might expect.
There is no follow up regarding if he did indeed try acupuncture for his pain. It appears he was quite ill at the time and it may not have been a priority. However, if anyone knows more about Mr. Ebert's interest in acupuncture I would be happy to learn about his experience.
