Comment: milk thistle cure is not new (Score 0) 274

by jcomeau_ictx (#46224059) Attached to: The Death Cap Mushroom Is Spreading Across the US
European countries have used milk thistle for this purpose for centuries if not millennia, but US doctors have been blocked from using it by the FDA for years; they'd rather have people die than be cured by something not patentable. hopefully this situation will change someday, even if it has to be because Merck or another Big Pharma firm comes up with a synthesized, patentable work-alike drug similar to silibinin hemisuccinate.
