    1) What do you care, Spammin' Dave? Your only concern has been to
    tell us that all drugs are awful, and only your overpriced,
    pesticide-contaminated ginseng really works.

    2) Those prices, at least for the US, are not typically anywhere near
    the best prices, and are mostly quoted for the brand-name stuff.
    Generics, which are available for many of them, are much cheaper.

    3) None of those drugs is an alternative medication, so your entire
    posting is off topic. As are all your nitwit posts that are
    devoted to bashing conventional medicine. Get lost. Better yet,
    drop dead.

    Ahhh. That's nice.

    Perhaps the MANY problems within conventional medicine is WHY so many are
    turning to alternative.

    Do you have any idea how many people are getting thier prescription meds from
    Canada??

    David doesn't want too discuss that, just call names and tell people to drop
    dead.

    Sad that.
