By your rational, car mechanics shouldn't be focusing their time "treating" the car to oil changes and tune ups because all their money comes from
the one time engine overhaul or installation of a new transmission.
That's a terrible analogy and you well know it.
Our cars would not function without oil, we function perfectly well without cancer drugs.
In any case, oil changes and so on, are a preventative measure to avoid the requirement for a complete engine change, we don't routinely pop chemo
drugs to prevent cancer.
Many of these plants and herbs are analogous to the oil change you mentioned, inasmuch as they are indeed preventative, cancer treatments in form of
convention drugs and procedures are not designed as a cure, but as a treatment to prolong the life of the sufferer, often with recurrences and repeat
treatments and of course more profits.
No one is saying Pharma wants us dead, only alive can we be profitable..but cured, naturally, almost for free - without expensive drugs and procedures
and after care? Where is their incentive to promote such things? Humanity doesn't sell shares or keep the shareholders happy mate.
Anyway, we'll have to agree to disagree, i need to sleep so i'm out of here.
Thanks again OP, truly excellent thread.
