I'll never forget how that weight-reducing drug(Fen-Fen) was a sure thing. Medical cures are never a sure thing. Clinical studies are always under suspicion.It takes along time to determine effectiveness.
Well said, endomir. The best medicine still is, appropriate excises, balanced nutrition, enough sleep, positive outlook on life, .....etc. You can literally practice them for a penny a day (the cost could add up because you will live a very long life that way.)
Everything else is just a remedy. Sometimes they work, and more often than not they fail. Regardless of they work or not, they cost you a bundle. No, the hospital would not give you a discount even if you die in an operation room.
The only sure thing in life? You will die. You may argue that taxation is another. Well, that depends. You don't pay taxes if you don't have an income.
