not sure where your perception of curezone & its members comes from, but I have been a member here for nigh on two years and totally disagree with you.
Yes, people are here for their own agenda, and rightly so, as they have found little to no comfort with mainstream medicine; but I also witness far more posts of support, advice & encouragement than I ever do of what you describe as members pushing their "love childs"!!!
For the most part, alternative treatments and therapies come at a far lower cost than anything you find on the mainstream drug, surgery and diagnostic agenda, where treatments can cost thousands of $$$$ per month and which only address symptoms and not the true causes of disease and ill-health. Mainstream is for the most part, in the business of disease-management and the perpetuation of disease for the sale of their wares, resulting in annual profits for their business and shareholders.
One example of (many) alternative treatment protocols, and which is an extremely efficacious cure for cancer, has been recognized by the FDA is "Oleander", which for the cost of pennies per day as a home-made therapy, will not the bankrupt the individual!!
You are free to choose the mainstream path, so why on earth are you here then, when this site is devoted to non-mainstream remedies? and if you prefer to pay the exorbitant & extortionate prices for drug and other mainstream treatments that is your prerogative, so I suggest you do not lecture those that are here to avoid the need to raise a second mortgage just to recover their health & stay alive.
Testimonials are taken at face value, yes, but then what profiteth a man/woman to lie if they are only acting as a witness to their treatment protocol?........Nothing.
The personal Debate Forums
usually sink into the abyss because of the dogmatic mainstream approach of some members who resort to name-calling, slander and defamation of character, but in their absence this is not the case.
Also your comment...........
"Some that post at CureZone also have their own group at Yahoo (Yahoo Groups), which are by membership only. I need not explain why – you should be able to figure it out on your own.".................
You are of course referring to Tony Isaacs who has his own forum here, and his own yahoo group on oleander, but he offers his advice with a remedy that can be made at home for pennies/cents a day. Is he therefore exploiting other members? Hardly. Compare this to the exploitation by "Big Pharma" who spend more money on advertising (millions of $$$$) their wares than they ever do on research and development of new drugs. Money for them is the name of the game.
Those of us with "good intentions", do stay the distance and will continue to do so, as some peoples motives are humanitarian and altruistic, and not driven by the greed and profit-motive. You have a lot to learn it seems.
Yes, this is a negative response, but only to a negative post of your own, which is both cynical and unduly critical of what is after all, a website full of saving grace for mankind.
