    Really? Do you have some research to back that up, or is that only anecdotal evidence? Don’t get me wrong. I’m studying to be a pharmacist, but I’m a proponent of any food-based method of fixing the root problem, as drugs ALWAYS have side effects. Nevertheless, if you cannot provide hard scientific proof, it’s only hearsay.

    I’m so confused about this comic and the “Alternative” comment that is always left underneath.

    @bendersastre -What? Asking a collectivist for scientific evidence? Exercise in futility. They just know what’s true, science be damned.

    Ignoring Steffi’s fruit of the day, Mr. BJ is presenting a statement which supports his position, but has little truth to it. In developed countries, reforestation offsets harvested trees. Slash and burn, overharvesting and wood as fuel in third world countries are causing net loss of trees each year.
    Third worlders are the problem, as they will continue to add population and destroy resources. The earth has a finite capacity for supporting humans, and we are burning the candle at both ends: adding population and destroying resources. We’ll all meet in the middle.

    Well and truly said Mr. Scott. Hot air rarely ssubstitutes for proven facts but is often taken for same. I wouldn’t worry much about this fruit and big pharm, and I am afraid that BenderSastre will wait long for his answer. The truth is that to bring a product to market a pharmaceutical company has to do many studies and clinical trials that, as a result, costs them millions of dollars to place a product on the shelves of pharmacies. That is why many of the “natural products” haven’t been tested and so, within limits, you can make whatever claims you want about them and, since the research hasn’t been done, no one can definitively refute these claims. So if you see a statement like, “studies by Duke show that xxxxx product makes you stronger than Hercules.” It is easy to assume that this refers to a study by Duke University. Instead it could be random thoughts while shaving by a guy named Joe Duke. Caveat Emptor.

    You must understand that 90% or our natural forests are gone. Replaced by trees planted to harvest specifically, tree farms. And they don’t want them to become natural forests either. Some of the trees they plant aren’t native but are good at short turn around yeilds. Why else are forest animals moving into suburbs?

    That is only in the USA. In other places sugar cane and palm trees replace the natural forests in Africa and South America.

    Ah Banj, my apologies I should have looked up the properties of S. purpurea before holding forth. Truth be told I have never heard of the damn thing. Since it is purple it might be good in a food fight.

    Fructose is found in fruits but it is okay because you eat fiber with it. High fructose corn syrup doesn’t. And it is a concentrate so it is abnormal for us to consume it.

    Sugar and molasses are also “concentrated”. I prefer my molasses further processed- into rum. For those of us living north of Florida, Steffi’s plants have little value. She should bring back the socialista strips. Wityh bikini clad, angry, nubile wimmins.

    does this comic have a point or is it just educational?

    Hey Stephanie, are you writing a term paper, your anti-capitalism book, your graduate school thesis, have you been arrested, or are you hospitalized with some tread disease? Please let us know so we can send either flowers or a cake with a file in it.
