i am all for using herbal medicines and think that tribes and medicine men of these shit hole rain forest places have alot to tell us about how herb mixes work and stuff, but i say take it to the lab and tell me EXACTLY what is the active ingredient and how we can use it to make money. none of this all natural medicine that doesn't do crap and keep people from going to actual phecisians and doctors.
did you know that if we didn't have those damn dark ages full of the inquisitian and death to thinkers that we could have the year 3000 today? shakespear would have been typing up his works on a computer and columbus could have gone to the damn moon. we lost like 1000 years of advance ment and for what? to burn people at the stake for saying the earth is round?
