I already do what I can to keep myself healthy....but things like glaucoma need chemicals to treat them.
Certain ailments/conditions just do not respond well to alternative treatments, IMHO.
They more or less have us over a barrel in some cases.
leaked documents reveal that the United States is pushing for stringent intellectual property protections for drugs. These protections could give pharmaceutical companies longer monopolies over brand name drugs. This would allow them to charge high prices for longer periods of time and either stop or delay the generic competition from producing less expensive versions that are vital to global health.

I just want to bring up a point here. I Don't take any pharma dope for nothing.
Are you depressed?? Get the hell out of the house and just meet people face to face at a church, library, bookstore, dog park, or volunteer somewhere and surround yourself with positive people and all that positive energy.
Chronic pain?? Try to see if there is a way to treat the source of that pain instead of taking the easy way out and masking it every 4-8 hours. I have chronic pain in my right knee because of the pins holding the rod in place. It pretty much limits severely my running.

You may not want to rely on wikipedia for your information. It's a starting point at best for anything that's not common knowledge. .
