I used to have lots of bowel problems until I stopped drinking milk. After reading this I imagine many people could get better by just not drinking the stuff. I also about a year or two ago took some of those internet colon cleanser pills. Amazingly enough they got rid of a tapeworm that I had had for years. I felt good as new after that regimen of pills.

All that being said, with all the pharma's making billions off their drugs like vioxx and so forth, isn't it about time we put an end to their nonsense. The FDA isn't doing a damn bit of good, and really never has, meanwhile these new drugs are getting pushed through while the newer and apparently better alternatives are being sidelined. It just really looks like drug companies are completely profit driven.

As they should be; it's the protection they get from the FDA that distorts their intentions. Were they fully liable for side effects or abetting disease in order to sell a solution, they wouldn't do it quite so gleefully. Were there more alternatives to the FDA, private subscription watchdog companies as it were, themselves responsible for the accuraby of their information, the public and the medical profession could then do a better job of comparing competing therapies.
