I do not say that it is without problems. I remember also raising a brow and arguing how vaccines are good until one person here on ATS showed me video of a person responsible for first Polio vaccines. Mercury is harmless compared to what was in that stuff.
But there is a reasonable behavior. If one really needs an antibiotic - in vast majority of cases no herbs will help. If there is a high blood pressure and person is incapable/unwilling to change lifestyle - without controlling it with drugs he will live less. Cholesterol - the same. Asthma - how asthmatic can live normal life without inhalers? Diabetes ... And the list is long.
Fearing medical establishment is an overkill. It should be treated with caution. No more.

I am now absolutely convinced the Medical Establishment, which includes the Pharmaceutical Manufacturers, the AMA, the FDA, the NIH, and others is absolutely corrupt beyond measure.
