    Big Pharma Scores Big Win: Medicinal Herbs Will Disappear in EU
    It’s almost a done deal. We are about to see herbal preparations disappear, and the ability of herbalists to prescribe them will also be lost.

    I cannot beleive that new-age superstition, affinity towards naturism, rejection of science and fear of ‘artificial’ medication have got into academia. I love dr Ellen Hughes but i have to say that her research is prejudiced, biased and non objective, is just sophisticated naturism

    Children r not educated-they r MEDICATED. Fruits, Non-starchy vegetables, nuts & seeds – cannabis 4 medicine. if u can hav a cup cake or a twinkie, then u can hav marijuana. Marijuana is healthier than SUGAR! It helps CURE cancer. now you know why it’s ILLEGAL. Truth is an obscure thing, Oppression & lie is the norm. Were all Slaves- our masters, the elite, r at least 50 years ahead of us in knowledge, technology, info., secrets & r using all of it against us!

    America over medicates itself.

    There’s a miracle drug for everything yet the side effects are sometimes worse than the disease itself!

    Acetaminophen, for example, DESTROYS your liver.

    science is not better than nature.
    a buyer has to do research before ingesting anything into their bodies (presb drugs, herbs etc) vioxx , celbrex research it.
    they use herbal supplements, for one reason, they have lost trust in the medical establishment. that is the #1 reason. she makes fun of people taking herbs with her cartoons, but the fact of the matter is, herbs are still a safer aproach
