Many disappoint: A series of different level studies must show the medicine is safe, that there's a reasonable chance it will be helpful, and only then can a controlled study be done to demonstrate clear benefit. Many new touted "breakthrough" drugs prove terribly disappointing. This is the reality -- there's no magic way to find miracle cures, but I've never believed in dark conspiracies either. ...Read more

How come the fda has not approved drugs like mms, vitamin b17 or dca for cancer?

Wishful thinking: Jg, all of us -- myself included -- want to believe disinformation campaigns offering false hope. Yes, real medicine has problems. But think -- no conspiracy could be this vast. Real science is the most cutthroat of all human activities. If mms (industrial-strength bleach to drink), "vitamin b17" (usually amygdalin) or dichloroacetate worked, a real scientist would prove it & win the nobel prize. ...Read more

Is the federal drug administration fda guilty of neglect for all these antiinglammatory drugs?

Are they as safe as anti-inflammatories? Fda has no data and no idea. ...Read more
