Q: Do you use TCM? Traditional Chinese Mephitics

 

https://www.chinadialogue.net/article/show/single/en/6318-Chinese-herb-farmers-unaware-of-pesticide-health-risks

 

It has bonus ingredients. I am quite sure the same farming standards can be applied to the food we eat.

I read the article. Yes its sadly damn true. So far the best way I can think of is to learn as many useful tips when picking food/groceries as possible.

Even with properly grown herbs... How you have a proper dosage of a medicine, when what you dose is the raw herb/mushroom/whatever and when the concentration of the few active molecules that have an effect varies (depends on sun exposure, soil, climate, hybridation with local plants, yadayada)

ive heard that Chinese medicine is natural. after years of using western medicine, i am getting tired of it. ive gotten lots of permanent nasty side effects using western medicine. corrupted western doctors are always prescribing me meds that i dont even need. for western medicine, it's all about pharmaceutical corporations making money. i have lost faith in western medicine.

A:Wow, you really found that nitpicky talking point that elevates the fossil fuel industry to the same level as the interests of humanity. Isn't it all just a "liberal" scam, if you don't look too closely at the absence of logic? "Yes, it must be. My masters are hinting that that's what I should believe!"

You've made it clear you are consciously ignoring the pollution and global warming. Since your handlers, the conservative establishment whose dismantling of the carbon credit system and environmental destruction you choose to ignore, have made it clear you should bark in this direction, you are eager to please!

Such an admirably domesticated, dependable, subservient human. I'm sure your handlers will throw you a bone while they bring home the bacon for themselves. You're so obedient, you deserve a doggie cookie! Who's a good boy? You are! Yes, you are. U-S-A! Woof woof woof! -- coineineagh
