    Interesting book - I am sure the "alternative medicine &quo

    Interesting book - I am sure the "alternative medicine " crowd will come out and vilify the author and his message - which is there are only two kinds of medicine: that which works, that which does not work, ( I would add: that for which the jury is still out. In any event - "alternative medicine is generally unregulated, non-proven, and not subject to the same scrutiny as the medical science we rely on to help us - - when it can. And often it can't. Of course, the alt med believers tend to think "big" Pharma and "big" Medicine have some sort of nefarious objective - which is to keep us kill us all. How sad for them to go through life with such an intellectually lazy viewpoint. I doubt the person below has actually read the book., but I would remind them that the plural of anecdote is NOT data. Enjoy the book! I did.

    Well worth reading. I learned a lot about the vitamin/supplement

    Well worth reading. I learned a lot about the vitamin/supplement industry, and also some historical aspects of B17 were new to me. Definitely a book I want to read at least one more time.
