Dwayne Elizondo Mountain Dew Barack Hussein Obama is an outstanding humanitarian, no doubt -- curing AIDS and lowering oceans is next to nothing for him -- he'll get to it in a few years when he is done fixing his website. Apart from that, i noticed the stuff about antibiotics curing half of back problems. In my advanced years i am no longer annoyed by medicine not being science. I am still surprised though of what kind of unbelievable nonsense people would believe as long as some newspaper published it. Back surgery, to which antibiotics are the proposed substitute solves actual mechanical problems in spine -- cutting herniated disk, fixing disk, increasing vertebrae openings for spinal canal or on the side -- all done to relieve pressure on nerves. I went to look at what the geniuses did for the study and how they defined success of it. So, they took people with pain from slipped disk and gave one group antibiotics for 100 days. I am not kidding, that's 100. Statistically significant percent of them claimed they have decrease of pain. Yeap, and 65% of them also vomited, farted, and had indigestion. These "researches" must have killed all bacteria in the stomach of these people. Not talking about desensetising them to antibiotics. Ouch. I guess you tend to notice pain less if you fart all day. Apart from that they simply relieved a symptom, no more, no less. I read before that antibiotics appear to have both antiinflammatory and analgesic effect, they relieve neuropathic pain. So what? Crystal meth does it too, however aspirin is prescribed for these purpose. Whichever way, how is 'curing' pain equivalent to curing the source of pain? Maybe i need a little gathorade.
