    Default When Science Confirms Traditional Medicine

    March 11th 2012
    Sayer Ji, Founder

    Unbeknownst to the general public, billions of dollars of drug company and government grant money has flowed into finding lead compounds for new drug development over the past 50 years. Although much has been learned about the power and relative safety of natural substances in preventing and treating disease in the process, natural substances rarely if ever find the sustained capitalization necessary to make it through the additional FDA hurdles required for drug approval, which costs over 800 million dollars per drug.

    Inadvertently, some of the very same companies and interests which would like for natural substances not to receive the same drug-approval status available to the synthetic ones, are funding research that prove basic vitamins, foods and spices are at least as effective, sometimes more effective, and often much safer and affordable than the drugs they are developing to replace or supplant them.

    Interesting that the drug companies "inadvertently" funded research proving vits., foods & spices are at least as effective as drugs. I wonder how this was done "inadvertently." I read the entire article and couldn't figure this out. Perhaps my brain cells are on vacation today.

    Unless,.....they intentionally set out to prove drugs were more efficient and ended up realizing supplements were just as efficient. That's my best guess???

    That makes sense - but I'm surprised the information wasn't buried. It has been known!
