Question description

Contrary to allopathic opinion, there are plenty of studies validating the use of CAM treatments for not only prevention of disease, but also for treatment of active disease. The herb/spice curcumin for example has over 7400 citations in PubMed for treating and preventing a diverse array of conditions...everything from cancer to depression to diabetes to osteoporosis. The preponderance of the evidence reveals that curcumin has significant anti-inflammatory activity and thus is useful in the management of many diseases that can result from overexpression on inflammatory chemicals in the body, however mainstream medicine stops short of accepting it as having these properties. Herbs cannot be patented by pharmaceutical companies (so there is little to no money to be made from them in terms of medications) so what role you think this fact plays in the lack of acceptance of CAM therapies that have a significant scientific research portfolio?
