Roger Bird Posted 5 months ago Should we let homeopathy be? Personally, I try to scrimp and save every penny, and I do a good job of it. Every health generating activity or item that is close to free is ignored because no one is getting paid to promote it. Every older person should drink 8 glasses of water a day (with mineral supplementation. I use hard spring water, so I don't need much in the way of mineral supplementation), but you will never hear about it because no one can make enough money off of it to spend the time and money to promote it. No conspiracy or greed here; just the way life works: people have to make a living. I also see that people fancy that the exotic is going to make them healthy. So some berries or herb from the Western Ghats in India is suppose to be so ultra-cool for your health, but apples are ignored. Apples just aren't exotic enough.
