What's a Drug?
Drugs Do Not Heal, Drugs Treat Disease 

What's a Drug?

A drug is a non-healing form of medicine in allopathy that is used to intervene in the causes of disease by a diagnosis for treatment, prevention, mitigation and cure.

Drugs are often petroleum based lab-created pharmaceuticals, but some may also be a concentrated pure constituent that is derived from plants and approved for medical use.

Drugs are biomedically studied and researched with human clinical trials to prove safety and efficacy for disease intervention.

Drugs are Not Food

Drugs are Not Food
Drugs Do Not Count as Food and Supplements 

Drugs are not to be confused for nutrients, medicinal herbs, or any other type of dietary supplement. Drugs do not work like dietary supplements and using drugs as nutrients, medicinal herbs, and dietary supplements is known as quackery.
