The New York Times gets it right with maggots

Although it has been slow to pick up on the maggot therapy story, the New York Times has produced what is likely the best article on it:

The analysis, published online March 19 in BMJ, found no difference between the two treatments in time to healing, although the larval treatment was somewhat more expensive and associated with slightly more pain. On the whole, the researchers concluded, there is little difference between the two treatments, and the choice should be left up to the patient.

They even link to the original study! The Times of London could learn a thing or two from these guys.
