    I write in response to Frank Souders' essay in your Wednesday, December 23, 2020 issue entitled "The Great COVID-19 Deception."

  • Plant-based drugs…
    Most modern drugs, legal or otherwise, are created in a laboratory, but the fact remains that most originally began in the wild.  Growing naturally in the Earth’s incredibly diverse eco-systems.  Following are a list of a few of our modern drugs, in their natural, pre-processed form.
