Some modern remedies are extremely questionable ecologically. There is increasing concern about treatments such as radiation and chemical tranquillisers.

And 3.5 million medical experiments are carried out on live animals each year, tests which produce very little useful information. WHAT NEEDS TO CHANGE: We need to see good health in terms of a relaxed mind, a creative spirit and a healthy environment, not just as a body which does what we want.
