    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.
