11. let food be your medicine

and medicine be your food.

I use beet juice as medicine. Just sayin'. Just because something doesn't have a gelatin capsule around it doesn't mean it doesn't have a physiological effect on the body.

I mean, you can sprinkle capsaicin on your tacos or you can take a capsule. You can eat natto or get it in capsule form.

The use of herbs as supplements is centuries old. This is NOT, I repeat NOT, any sort of major public health issue. I find it odd that some people are obsessed with this topic. Regulating herbs, etc. is not going to solve the major public health issues that we face--lack of exercise, poor food choice, epidemic of diabetes, obesity, etc. Anyone who is truly concerned with public health should direct their attention there, and let those people who use turmeric in pill or herb form, use beet juice and cayenne pepper alone. I would just as soon such things not increase in price one hundred fold. I love my beet juice! It is already pricey enough.
