      Never did trust Dumpling Restaurant and Yummy Wok T. Good to see these dudes have improved to a C grade. What is a C grade? Does that mean mouse carcasses are now not swept into a corner? Could this be East meets West..and never the twain shall meet?

      Another reason why you should take a swig of colloidal silver before eating out.

        is there such a thing as a C grade?

          Beats me. That’s why I’m querying it.

    Miracle Of The Day.

    This pawpaw product can stop burns. Interesting to note, I cannot find the clips that show people putting their whole hand into boiling fat, then applying the pawpaw solution resulting in no burns. Maybe that is too much of a miracle.

        Actually bought some for a relly with psoriasis. Guess what? Enjoy your safe little bubble.

        ps- $56 Aus for 500 mls. Miracles ain’t cheap. And someone has to pay for the Porsche. But that’s capitalism. You create a product the works, and people want..good luck to you.

          there is no known cure for psoriasis…period.

          • Gezza

             /  June 23, 2018

            Sometimes where there’s no cure there’s nevertheless a natural treatment that’s as, or more effective than, conventional synthetic-chemical-based pharmaceutical products in relieving symptoms.

            Fight that bubble, Blazer. Her doctor said the results where simply the placebo effect in action.

            Placebo effect:

            ”A beneficial effect produced by a placebo drug or treatment, which cannot be attributed to the properties of the placebo itself, and must therefore be due to the patient’s belief in that treatment. Orthodox doctors dismiss the positive results as a result of the placebo effect”

            Hold on. What the? Belief? When did belief come into science? Science is fact based, although it allows for speculation. I posted a clip yesterday showing a purported mind over matter treatment. Therefore it is possible that clip is true.

            The truth is science is waking up to a disturbing reality- the conscious mind of an experimenter can effect the outcome of his testing. We see this with homeopathy where one scientist gets results, while another with a sceptical attitude gets no results.

            This insight is far reaching if you think about it.

              We see this with homeopathy……
              The only thing you will see with homeopathy is a bunch of gullible idiots paying lots of money for water and woo.
              Of course you are into it then

              re Creflo $…the inspiration for a well known NZ ‘Bishop’…apparently.

              Horses aren’t gullible. I think you have missed the point of my comments.
              I personally do not use homeopathy. Anything to add apart from nothing?
