I’m not usually down with sensationalist health news.
I believe ‘western medicine’ gets a bad name because of ‘big pharma’, which really isn’t fair. People who are into ‘new-age healing’, ‘holistic’, or ‘complimentary alternative medicine’, etc., are often too quick to be dismissive of ‘western medicine’. I’m sorry your doctor didn’t ‘cure’ your back pain. But you don’t just eat more anti-oxidants when you’re having a heart attack, you go to the ER… and if you have diabetes, insulin keeps you alive. The opposite of bad medicine is not no medicine, it’s good medicine. So please, no doctor hating comments below, k?
Now that I’ve played ‘devil’s advocate’ to contrast the info below… I feel better about posting this AMAZING info-graphic.
