Permanent Secretary for Agriculture and Cooperatives Supatra Thanaseniwat said after an AEC workshop at Government House on Thursday that there would be assessments of impacts from the AEC on Thai agricultural products, such as rice and fruits.

Pharmaceutical companies turn old natural remedies into medicines. They pack them for higher prices. For business’ sake, they need to campaign against alternative medicine. But not all doctors agree.
Medical companies like Astra are all about profit. Unfortunately, those interested in creating “different medications” are likely to face a patent entrenchment case. Big companies will not hesitate to sue those who use what they themselves add to their products.

Being diagnosed with STD blows a different level of bad news. But, this is a book that provides and explains alternative medications against common STDs. It offers a new perspective given that new strains of microorganisms are continuously being discovered to be resistant to medications. In fact, common antibiotics do not work anymore in some Asian countries. The advice we are going here is to use synthetic drugs only when natural means have been exhausted in treating common illnesses. So, it is definitely worth a try and there is nothing to lose when somebody says garlic is effective against herpes.
