Annie Appleseed Project is an all-volunteer nonprofit, founded by a cancer survivor. There is no paid staff but we try to answer all emails and phone calls as soon as possible.
We created these DOWNLOADABLE PDF files to help you and your family or friends make more informed decisions. We have 4 available now, but more will be ready soon.
Remember that there are many paths to wellness so if one idea does not ‘resonate’ for you, there are other things to do. Natural therapies are not researched the same way as BIG PHARMA due to the cost of running large-scale trials (costing as much or more than $400 million). It is sort of a closed shop because the only industry that can afford to conduct a Randomized Clinical Trial (RCT) are part of Pharma which as a group earns over a Trillion $ a year. This group will not study anything they cannot patent, and have publicly stated this when responding to questioning.
Sadly when they become interested in a substance that has shown value (called efficacy), it has to be modified in order to be patented. When modified, it is changed and that change generally includes toxicities.
However, natural therapies are studied – on a smaller scale, but with many studies. The United States maintains a Library of Medicine and can be accessed (and SEARCHED) at www.pubmed.gov
We are here to help you make more informed decisions. We wish you well.
