I realize the broadcast must promote itself, but "you heard it first here" is a massive overstatement.

In general, there have been vast differences between treatments in the US and other countries. For example, 20 years ago, we were told that European countries successfully treated varicose veins with antioxidant food supplements whereas the US medical protocol was and is vein-stripping surgery.

But the good news for those in the US: we are an assimilative society, and curative treatments from all over the world are found and permitted here. If the AMA doesn't endorse a particular protocol, it's fairly easy to find some other protocol from the other countries in the world.

Eve,

The webcast title and content had nothing to do with what you spoke of. The problem was that a company in India was producing science for the drug companies and were found to be falsifying data. In this case EKG data.

I guess that in the USA it is an OK practice. Best if not caught though, because then the embarrassing headlines, but not to worry the FDA has your best interests in mind, especially of the companies were from guess where.

This does happen often, it seems. For example, we have a current hoopla over brand-name herbal supplements - Walmart, Target, GNC - because samples of these supplements were found to have absolutely none of the main ingredient. Does that make ALL of Walmart, Target, GNC, and all herbs suspect?

When viewed from what gets picked up on the news, all countries look like hell (except Canada - too cold!). However, a reasonably savvy person can live a long lifetime without being bombarded by most of the scandals, and once in a while we can expect to be duped by someone else's dishonesty. As far as cheating in the field of science, hasn't even Gregor Mendel (the pea geneticist) been accused of tweaking his results?

Eve,

In some ways it is all moot because although I come from two generations of PPL in the Allopathic drug business, I don't touch any of their potions.

Re: Canada, I have left the very cold regions for a place which snow is but a memory. Don't miss it. Around here two inches and it's time for marshall law. ;)
