Ben Fuchs fills in for Dr. Wallach.  Ben discusses a recent study on Black Cohosh that found it was not effective in the treatment of post menopause symptoms.  He asks the question of how valid is this study.  Asking how much Blach Cohosh was used in the study?  Where was it grown?  Contending that the study was not a fair assesment of Blach Cohosh.

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.
