Finding Better Drugs Makes Lots of Money---whereas, promoting health and avoiding disease does not. For that reason, we hear news every day about the continuous search for high-tech drugs that will enable us to protect ourselves from our bad habits or cure us once we have been stricken by disease. Recently (10-11-12) we heard the following news about the Nobel Prize:

Two American researchers won the Nobel Prize in chemistry Wednesday for studies of protein receptors that let body cells sense and respond to outside signals like danger or the flavour of food. Such studies are key for developing better drugs.

The Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences said Robert Lefkow-itz and Brian Kobilka had made groundbreaking discoveries, mainly in the 1980s, on an important family of receptors, known as G-protein-coupled receptors.

About half of all medications act on these receptors, including beta blockers and antihistamines, so learning about them will help scientists to come up with better drugs.

Dr. Caldwell Esselstyn of the Cleveland Clinic has reversed heart disease in nearly 100% of his patients -- with diet change only.

Just as Dr. Esselstyn of the Cleveland Clinic faced ridicule from his peers when he started reversing heart disease in over 95% of his terminal heart patients; there continues to be no appreciation for simple, effective and inexpensive ways of promoting vibrant health.

Back in the 80s, when Dr. Esselstyn started reversing disease with nothing more than a change in diet, he was mockingly called "Dr. Sprouts" by the other physicians. Continue reading this article...
