You are so right, but as the saying goes, "You're preaching to the choir."
Unfortunately for us who know this and want to pursue the natural approach to health, we are NOT the multibillion dollar corporate powers who grease the palms of big brothers. Whose post was it that talked about how the European Union had banned the purchase of so many natural substances and supplements? Every so often such a bill is presented to the U S Congress. So many doctors today see vitamins and minerals not as supplements to our poor nutritional needs but as medicine; and, in their estimation, the general public is not capable of taking these natural substances wisely. Do you recall when the FDA removed L-tryptophan from store shelves. Do you know that within just weeks of that removal, Prosac came on the market?
You said so much when you said, "the pharmaceuticals INTERFERE with the healing powers of the foods NOT the other way around."
