Home Remedies and the Government

We have all used home remedies at one point or another. But did you ever think that the FDA or other higher powers are behind removing books or other literature from the shelves because people are getting cured WITHOUT prescription drugs?

A friend of a friend of mine worked as a manager at a local Walgreens store. For those of you that don't know a Walgreens when you see one, they are a cross between your local pharmacy and a convenience store, only without the gas.

Anyways, this manager noticed that a particular book was selling off the shelves. It was called something like Aunt B's home remedies or something like this. It was about 3 inches thick and was full of natural remedies and other remedies that were passed around from the beginning of time.

Customers were loving the book up and down and all of a sudden, said manager gets a call from head office people and is told to pull the books and anyone caught selling the book after today will be terminated. Isn't that a little suspicious? Why wouldn't anyone want those books on the shelf? Was there recipes for bombs in it? How to make your own drugs?

I can't think of any other reasons why the book isn't good enough to sell to people that are willing to try something outside the norm.
