Take a look at this. And - just for the heck of it watch the movie attached here called
THE WORLD ACCORDING TO MONSANTO - It will blow you away.
And basically -
The government wants to control our food seed source, natural herbs and supplements. Many of these foods - herbs and supplements can keep us well - without a doctors prescription - without Big Pharma -
EXAMPLE: Garlic is a natural antibiotic. We can grow our own garlic.
So - We might not need a prescription - No one makes money off of us.
Not good for the docs -
not good for the govt -
not good for the big pharma. companies.
