Such a positive news item, and one that should inspire us all to appreciate this amazing world and all the wonders here! Those so called primitive humans were 'on to something' when they saw the benefits of herbs, and now our ingenious so called modern man, is discovering the keys to unlock much more than we've ever imagined before! Thanks for the 'green' message, JL A!

Guess I am just getting too old or intolerant of jargonistic crap. Biotherapy, Oh, kiss my ass the word is DRUGS. Drugs, Drugs, Drugs, you know anything that is introduced into the human body in any way to effect a change of any kind. Nothing but big words to make small minds look big while claiming to be doing something new that has been going on since before man came out of the trees and is still being done by birds, chimps, elephants and host of other animals.
