Whilst this story of an obesity-fighting plum is interesting, it is the following quote which caught my eye:
“When we first started working with some of these types of compounds no one believed something as simple as a plum could actually be a medicine,” Professor Lindsay Brown, from the University of Southern Queensland in Toowoomba, said.
How blinded we have become. Humanity has relied on the extraordinary gifts of nature for health and healing for thousands of years, but our blinkered allopathic medical world has completely eliminated them from Western consideration. More than that, it’s working overtime to make them illegal in every manner possible.
