I seem to remember that the argument that cigarette smoking did not cause cancer, put forth by the tobacco companies for decades, were based on the no trial was done mantro, and how could mere observation really prove that smoking is the cause of lung cancer, people couldn't prove it, right. So, those money grabbers got away with killing people for decades. Not too many volunteers for that study. Now, studies have been done. Or have they? In either case, most will grant that they would be better off not smoking. . Anyone wanna start smoking again to see if it does cause cancer? Think of the people who died while that fiasco was going on? Yikes.
In regards to cancer-
Similar situation with lots of areas where it appears that something will help. I am willing to give it a go --especially if it looks like funding for the research my never materialize.
I guess I'm trying to say, try not to be swayed from attempting something you feel could lengthen your life, simply because someone wants you to wait for the study to get funded, run its phase one, two and three and trials, and then get the FDA approval, which the FDA will only grant to "drugs" and not natural substances, so the dang thing is never going to get funded unless some group of concerned people make it their goal to see the subject in question does get some money.
Anywho, I'm going to think on the things I've learned of here and elsewhere and draw the best conclusions I can, for me, given my circumstances, and act accordingly. You can wait for the paper to be published that proves x, y, or z, conclusively, or you can... well, you can decide how you want to proceed.
Here's wishing you all the best and then some for good measure.
all we can all do is keep thinking about what we know and listen to what other's have to offer and think about that stuff. Then just go watch a good comedy and laugh, laugh, laugh.
Did you know that exhaling helps your body to get rid of weak acids. And laughter in general is just good for the soul. I do believe we are doing swimmingly swell.
My love to you all,
