Bravo Griz, More proof that knowledge is power and that we only need be open and available to it, never clinging neurotically to considerations once thought to be true, but now proved invalid by revealed and substantial evidence.
(Now if your up to it, look further and find how internal use is also safe and only uncomfortable when neglecting prescribed protocol).
Now we all might consider how the FDA does the bidding of unscrupulous people. Who controls the FDA, who decides? Is there a battle raging somewhere over these issues and who is on which side in that tug of war between our health and their wealth.(Which in some ways is insane because we all are destined to become ill and don't we all, no matter our position on these matters, want what really works?)
I propose that the answer is, that the situation has become too complex for the people that originally gained control of it. (Wealth buffers people from Reality, unseen but powerful investors harass company boards, research proposals and results are considered on their monetary value rather than health merits, lower level managers get hammered with "the bottom line", and on and on it goes ect ect. And the flow chart of all this, just like our own metabolic flow chart, dwarfs any one, or two, or three million persons. Heck, the sophistication and the data components involved are like the extreme numbers of microorganisms living in our bodies, and then there's us. The once high and mighty puppet masters have become puppets to a system that cares little for any of us as individuals, no matter our socialy considered grandeur. Ironic how selfishness breeds comeuppance, and ultimate selfishness discovers it ultimately).
And that, at lesser minion levels of that complexity, some people, w and in power, fight on, not realizing what is really happening because of the level of lifestyle complexity buffering them from knowing the specifics of this actually quite simple dilemma.
And furthermore many of us misread the situation, blaming the governing agencies, as if they were individual entities, where the people involved are actually just as ignorant by the very same levels of created social life complexity that have ensnared the higher ups, and in the end we improperly impute blame to legislative policy and law making bodies, wholesale, rather than to the fear based, reactionary, unthinking mentalities, who in their positions are more like the abusers in a battered spouse situation, rather than like two opposing sides in an open and honest brainstorming debate.
Our battle is not against people but a mind set, tho we all seem to easily find a convenient enemy in others. The rich vs the poor, the age generation gap, the opposite gender, those of a different ethnicity or philosophical persuasion. But the real enemy is our own mentality and manifests by the misplacing of our own ignorance, with an enemy, that other person or group or mindset (as real or obvious as that seems to be), and in doing so we frustrate our discerning of the real personal growth predicament we face.
Fear (false evidence appearing real) is the healthy mind killer. Knowledge destroys ignorance.
