We have two really effective drugs that nobody wants – healthy diet and exercise. Not that we shouldn’t be pursuing pharmaceutical means but we already have too many people relying on drugs to fix the problems that a bad diet and no exercise create.


When will this drug or drugs like it practically be released? I want this asap. And here’s a bunch for more words so the bot doesn’t automatically remove it. Pickles pickles pickles pickles.

I am 44 and take no drugs on the daily. My goal is to go as long as possible without any at all. If i have to change my habits or diet so be it!
