You've made a mistake here. I am not against synthetic drugs by any stretch. My objection was to the general classification by ElChingon that "The problems with most "natural" drugs are that they don't work reliably, repeatably, or predictably."GreasyMonkey said:Really, so how do all of us who cannot use Paracetamol or such get on? Very strange that I personally get MUCH better relief of pain related to inflammation with Asprin than the other classes of OTC painkillers.
If you understood the properties of asprin, what the active ingredient is and it's actions in the human body, then you might not post such drivel.
Asprin most certainly works reliably, repeatably and predictably for many of us(and even for somone like you who can't use it - it is still reliably, repeateably and predictably bad for you).
