More slick Big Pharma marketing or treatment, to drives sales and profits, but never a cure…

Do you remember Jim’s late brother John, in ‘ANIMAL HOUSE’?

John Belushi (Pluto in the movie) goes on to become a US Senator, as did Al Franken, former Saturday Night Live writer and actor and comedian (in real life, from Minnesota).

That’s what Big Pharma has become, a sick joke, harming for profit with bought an paid for Senators, Congress-persons and Presidents, plus the FDA, in Big Pharma’s pocket$.

A new study found that patients with gout who consumed cherries over a two-day period showed a 35% lower risk of gout attacks compared to those who did not eat the fruit. Findings from this case-crossover study published in Arthritis & Rheumatism, a journal of the American College of Rheumatology (ACR), also suggest that risk of gout flares was 75% lower when cherry intake was combined with the uric-acid reducing drug, allopurinol, than in periods without exposure to cherries or treatment.
