The East/West Contradiction


In the Western world, authorities mostly forbid health claims on natural products that are not approved by them. Most approved health claims are only granted to patented synthetic drugs from Big Pharma.


However, in the Eastern world the benefits of many natural products have already been proven for thousands of years in official treatments from doctors and specialists, based on extensive research.
