Then organize some peer reviewed research and prove it. If you turn out to be the guy that turns modern medicine on its head you would be bigger than
Bill Gates, The Rolling Stones, and Leonardo Dicaprio combined.
What's stopping you? Or right, it's a "conspiracy" - thus you don't need to actually prove anything - just point at the people who claim (rightly)
that using honey to treat things like HIV is ludicrous.
And you base this off Hippocrates' writings, and further, you criticize modern physicians for ignoring things said by the "father of medicine"?
Hippocrates also posited the "Humoral Theory of Disease" whereby all disease is caused by an imbalance of yellow bile, black bile, blood, and phlegm.
Would you recommend we go back to this as well? Please, tell me about how we should leech hospital patients.
The fact that doctors nowadays don't accept Hippocrates' ideas regarding honey is no more evidence of a conspiracy as modern physicists not using
Newtonian physics, or modern psychologists not using classical Freudian analysis. Believe or not, but Hippocrates, the 2000 year old doctor, got some
Edit: Another stupidity I noticed. You list a number of Greek philosophers and point to their relatively long life span to support your inane ideas.
If you add their lifespans together you get the number 539.5 (assuming that you take the guy to have lived 61-62 years as living 61.5). Divide this by
7 and you get 77.07. Which is still lower than the average male life expectancy is developing countries like Cuba, and developed countries like the
U.S.A. Also note that you listed Ancient Greek philosophers, people at the upper crust of that society. The average Greek male would have been far
worse off, honey or no.
That's basically like saying "A lot of celebrities are Scientologists, celebrities on average live longer than other people in society - ergo
Scientology makes you live longer!" You've identified a correlation and posted your ridiculous answer.
