Pearls of Wisdom

Doug Winfrey and Ben Fuchs discuss a recent news story concerning the beneficial effects of certain herbs and spices.  Doug contends that once the efficacy of a natural compound is verified drug companies try to determine the mechanism so drugs can be made.  The being that natural compounds can't be patented but synthetic compounds can be patented.
