Your many evasions are amusing. I would not be arguing for a
"balanced diet" in poverty-wracked third world regions lacking self-
supporting agriculture or the infrastructure to bring it about. The
poor in those regions are so far from having *food* that to speak of
them having a "balanced diet" is obscene. So, I am not referring to
"balanced diet" when referring to "natural medicine," but to food-
based dietary supplements whose food content is encapsulated and
easily transported to the poor.
