As I understand, Lyme is a very difficult disease to treat..even to diagnose..does not surprise me that any treatment would take a long time. "ASC" may not be effective for lyme..but that does not mean it does not work on other diseases. You keep going on about "industrial chemicals"...I still go back to my point about WARFARIN.. rat poison..in controlled dosages for human usage is Coumadin blood thinner..I am sure there are other similar cases where there are parallel usages of compounds for both industrial and medical purposes. I am having excellent results and will continue to take it and recommend it to friends and family. Sorry to disappoint but never had a plan for "world domination" by "ASC".. I just think it is of therapeutic value and should not be ignored as a treatment.
