Amylase Enzyme @ https://draxe.com/nutrition/amylase/- "By definition, it’s the primary starch-digesting enzyme secreted in the body. To be more specific, it digests carbohydrates (polysaccharides) into smaller disaccharide units, eventually converting them into monosaccharides, such as glucose. Alpha-amylase (α-Amylase) is the major form of amylase found in humans & other mammals and is mainly made the pancreas & salivary glands, but it’s also produced by the small intestine mucosa, ovaries, placenta, liver & fallopian tubes.

Berberine -By Jacob Schor -
https://www.naturalmedicinejournal.com/journal/2012-12/clinical-applications-berberine "The chemical berberine is found in a handful of plants widely used in botanical medical practice including Goldenseal (Hydrastis canadensis), Oregon grape (Berberis aquifolium), Barberry (Berberis vulgaris), & Chinese Goldthread (Coptis chinensis).
2 other berberine-containing plants that are familiar to practitioners of Chinese medicine are Phellodendron chinense & Phellodendron amurense..
Only a few chemicals are known to activate AMPK. Berberine is 1 of them.
Reports that berberine activates AMPK were first published in 2006.5 Resveratrol, salicylate & metformin also activate this chemical pathway6,7...
Berberine increases glucose uptake by muscle fibers independent of insulin levels.8 Berberine triggers AMPK activation and increases glycolysis, leading to decreased insulin resistance & decreased oxygen respiration.9 The same mechanism leads to a reduction in gluconeogenesis in the liver.10 AMPK activation also explains why berberine has an antiatherosclerotic effect in mice.11 The same mechanism is reported to underlie berberine’s antiobesity effects and favorable influence on weight loss12...
Berberine increases expression of insulin receptors and so reduces insulin resistance. 32,33 A 2009 study in China suggested that a synergistic action occurs when berberine
is combined with metformin or 2,4-thiazolidinedione (THZ) (a peroxisome proliferator-activated receptor [PPAR] activator used to treat diabetes) and might allow a reduction in the amount of these drugs required for treatment & so reduce the risk of toxicity 34...(The vitamin supplement) Berberine, like metformin, can help reduce the side effect of weight gain triggered by antipsychotic medications30, 31...
A 2nd chemical pathway of interest when considering therapeutic applications
of berberine to diabetes is the aldose reductase pathway...
In 2 separate articles published in 2008, Liu reported that berberine extracts protected or helped repair the kidneys of diabetic mice partly through aldose reductase inhibition.54,55 Berberine reduced oxidative stress in the kidneys.56 
Aldose reductase plays a role in diabetic cataract formation, and inhibition helps prevent cataract formation57...
A number of other chemical pathways have been delineated that underlie berberine’s antidiabetic actions.

Cinnamon is good for reducing blood sugar per FC&A Medical Publishing editors of Eat and Heal and 
The Cure Conspiracy: Medical Myths, Alternative Therapies & Natural Remedies Even Your Doctor May Not Know
Cinnamon and American ginseng may help the body to use insulin it has.  Nutritional diabetes is called insulin-resistant since body does not use enough existing insulin, making blood sugar rise.  In type-1 diabetes pancreas does not manufacture enough insulin. Cinnamon's methyl-hydroxy chalcone polymer makes fat cells more responsive to insulin & reduce blood glucose.  Daily add up to a teaspoon of cinnamon to beverages or cereal.

Cinnamon http://www.thyroid-info.com/articles/cinnamon.htm   In "a small 60 patient study conducted in Pakistan, reporting in the journal Diabetes Care , all the patients had been treated for type 2, adult onset diabetes for several years and were taking anti-diabetic drugs to increase their insulin output. But they were not yet taking insulin to help process their blood glucose. The subjects were given small doses of cinnamon ranging from as little as a quarter teaspoon to less than 2 teaspoons a day for 40 days.
The results: Not only did the cinnamon reduce their blood sugar levels and increase their natural production of insulin, it lowered their blood cholesterol as well. Even 20 days after the cinnamon treatment had ended, the patients continued to see beneficial effects...
All the patients in the study showed better glucose metabolism and natural insulin production when they took cinnamon capsules that delivered less than 2 teaspoons a day of the spice.
Specifically, their blood cholesterol levels were lowered in the range of 10-26%, affecting overall cholesterol levels & reducing the LDL (known as the “bad” cholesterol) but not reducing levels of HDL, the “good” cholesterol...
Millions...suffer from insulin resistance, sometimes known as 'prediabetes,' or the 'Metabolic Syndrome.' Lowering blood sugar levels, and improving cholesterol ratios can help reverse prediabetes & Metabolic Syndrome...
Addressing elevated blood sugar levels and helping to combat insulin resistance may be a successful factor in helping you lose weight. The fat cells in your abdomen are particularly sensitive to high insulin levels, & are very effective at storing energy – far more so that fat cells you’d find in other areas such as the lower body (i.e. hips, rear end, thighs).
Because abdominal fat cells are so close to your digestive organs.  There is an extensive network of blood vessels circulating in the abdominal area, it’s even easier for fat cells to store excess glucose there...
If you are already taking a diabetes medication, you should talk to your physician before trying cinnamon for medicinal uses, because cinnamon may have an impact on your blood sugar."

Goldilocks flower - http://www.israel21c.org/headlines/plant-discovery-offers-new-hope-for-diabetics/?utm_source=Israel21c+Weekly+Newsletter -

"Ingesting an indigenous Israeli aromatic shrub called Chiliadenus iphionoides (more commonly, 'sharp varthemia' or 'Goldilocks') could improve insulin secretion and glucose absorption in people with diabetes, according to plant biologist Jonathan Gorelick, scientific director of the Judea Regional Research and Development Center in Israel.  The center’s efforts to isolate the plant’s active compounds — and to assure these compounds are present when the plant is grown in the greenhouse rather than in the wild — is the topic of Gorelick’s presentation today at the 25th Judea and Samaria Research Studies Conference at Ariel University.  'This is a plant that only grows in Israel, Jordan & the Sinai & has been used traditionally by Bedouins for controlling diabetes,' Gorelick tells ISRAEL21c. 'I’ve been screening different Israeli plants for diabetes and this is one of the best candidates.'  In a study published in the Journal of Ethnopharmacology in October 2011, Gorelick and his team describe how they tested the effects of the plant on a particular Negev rodent with a nutritionally induced model of diabetes. When the animals were given an oral glucose tolerance test, blood-glucose levels returned immediately to normal levels only in the ones that had been fed sharp varthemia before the test."

HCG - Consider the use of Human Chorionic Gonadotrophin - http://www.thehcgdiet.com/pdf/pounds-and-inches-by-dr-a-t-w-simeons.pdf - "In an obese patient suffering from a fairly advanced case of stable diabetes of many years duration in which the blood sugar may range from 3-400 mg%, it is often possible to stop all anti diabetes medication after the first few days of treatment. The blood sugar continues to drop from day to day and often reaches normal values in 2-3 weeks. As in pregnancy, this phenomenon is not observed ill the brittle type of diabetes, and as some cases that are predominantly stable may have a small brittle Factor in their clinical makeup, all obese diabetics have to he kept under a very careful and expert watch.
A brittle diabetes is primarily due to the inability of the pancreas to produce sufficient insulin, while in the stable type diencephalic regulations seem to he of greater importance. That is possibly the reason why the stable form responds so well to the HCG method of treating obesity, whereas the brittle type does not. Obese patients are generally suffering from the stable type, but a stable type may gradually change into a brittle one, which is usually associated with a loss of weight. Thus when an obese diabetic finds that he is losing weight without diet or treatment, he should at once have his diabetes expertly attended to. There is some evidence to suggest that the change from stable to brittle is more liable to occur in patients who are taking insulin for their stable diabetes."

Inositol https://www.theralogix.com/about-theralogix/balanced-living/inositol-benefits/
"There are 9 types of inositol (a B vitamin) occurring in nature. 
2 forms, myo-inositol and D-chiro-inositol, have specific functions in our cells....
A certain ratio of these 2 forms seems to work better than either form alone. 
That ratio is 40-1, meaning 40 parts myo-inositol to 1 part D-chiro-inositol...
The recommended dose of myo-inositol for most people is 2,000 mg,  the recommended dose of D-chiro-inositol is 50 mg, taken twice a day (total daily dose of 4,000 mg of myo-inositol plus 100 mg of D-chiro-inositol). 
It takes at least 3 months of consistent use to see inositol benefits...
Inositol works by helping the body use
Insulin a hormone made by the pancreas and released into the bloodstream. 
Insulin allows our cells to take in glucose (carbohydrates/sugar) & produce energy...
When (the pancreas') insulin binds to its receptor, it 'unlocks' & releases secondary messengers. 
These secondary messengers tell the cell it is time to take in glucose from the blood.  Inositols function as secondary messengers.  This means that inositols are involved in insulin signaling.  They help the cell take in glucose from the blood... resulting in less insulin resistance, lower blood sugar & (lower blood) insulin levels."

[2,000mg myo-inositol (B8) + 50mg D-chiro-inositol, equals body's normal ratio: 40-1.]
Inositol - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Inositol - "Inositol or cyclohexane-1,2,3,4,5,6-hexol is a chemical compound with formula C6H12O6 or (-CHOH-)6, a six-fold alcohol (polyol) of cyclohexane. It exists in nine possible stereoisomers, of which the most prominent form, widely occurring in nature, is cis-1,2,3,5-trans-4,6-cyclohexanehexol, or myo-inositol (former names meso-inositol or i-inositol).[2][3] Inositol is a sugar alcohol. Its taste has been assayed at half the sweetness of table sugar (sucrose)...Myo-inositol (free of phosphate) was once considered a member of the vitamin B complex (formerly Vitamin B8); however, because it is produced by the human body from glucose, it is not an essential nutrient.[5]...In humans, most inositol is synthesized in the kidneys, in typical amounts of a few grams per day.[7]

Synsepalum dulcificum Complete purification & characterization of a taste-modifying protein, miraculin, from miracle fruit.
[J Biol Chem. 1988]
PMID: 3403544 + 3/30/2007 www.wsj.com  Miraculin, a glycoprotein from Synsepalum dulcificum provokes sweetness and blocks sourness, when consumed immediately prior to eating. 
Additionally, the taste-modifying protein, miraculin, has the unusual property of modifying sour taste into sweet taste.
Purification and complete amino acid sequence of a new type of sweet protein taste-modifying activity, curculin.
[J Biol Chem. 1990]    
A complete amino acid sequence of a new type of sweet protein taste-modifying activity, curculin was determined. Curculin consists of 114 residues. Curculin itself elicits a sweet taste. After curculin, water elicits a sweet taste, and sour substances induce a stronger sense of sweetness. No protein with both sweet-tasting and taste-modifying activities has ever been found. There are 5 sets of tripeptides common to miraculin (a taste-modifying protein), 6 sets of tripeptides common to thaumatin (a sweet protein), & 2 sets of tripeptides common to monellin (a sweet protein).
The primary structure and characterization of carbohydrate chains of the extracellular
glycoprotein proteinase inhibitor from latex of Carica papaya. [Eur J Biochem. 1996]    
A secretory proteinase inhibitor was isolated from the latex of green fruits of papaya (Carica papaya). The protein exhibited stoichiometric inhibition of bovine trypsin and alpha-chymotrypsin by the same site or overlapping binding sites. The complete covalent structure consisting of 184 amino acids & 2 disulfide bonds was determined by protein analysis...
The latex protein belongs to an extensively diverse plant protein family that includes inhibitors of serine, cysteine & aspartic proteases, a taste-modifying protein, wound responsive proteins, storage proteins, amylase inhibitors & even an oxidoreductase. In this superfamily, the latex proteinase inhibitor is most similar to the curious protein, miraculin, which makes sour food taste sweet. 2 carbohydrate chains, each probably composed of (mannose)5, (xylose)1, (fucose)0-2, and (N-acetylglucosamine)2 residues, were attached to asparagine 84 & 90...They may represent a new class of plant xylose-containing carbohydrate chains with 5 mannose residues.

Stevia - https://www.westonaprice.org/health-topics/modern-foods/sugar-free-blues-everything-you-wanted-to-know-about-artificial-sweeteners/ - "Stevia leaves and stevioside are virtually calorie-free, beneficial in the prevention of cavities and do not trigger a rise in blood sugar. They are not only safe for diabetics & hypoglycemics, but in some countries stevia leaves are even prescribed as a medicinal substance for these conditions because they normalize pancreatic function & thus aid in the metabolism of sugar.121.
The whole stevia leaves contain a number of beneficial compounds, including ascorbic acid, calcium, beta-carotene, chromium, cobalt, iron, magnesium, manganese, niacin, phosphorus, potassium, riboflavin, selenium, silicon, sodium, thiamin, tin & zinc.122
(It should be noted that only the whole (raw) stevia leaves have nutritive benefits. Stevioside extracts merely function as a sweetener & pass through the body undigested, although they do possess antiviral and antibacterial properties.123
When applied topically, stevia leaves also fight acne & speed
wound healing while also reducing formation of scar tissue.124

Whey one half hr before meals per "research published in July (2014) in the journal Diabetologia of the European Association for the Study of Diabetes...Eating protein stimulates GLP-1, a hormone in the gut, to produce insulin...GLP-1 should be able to help the body control blood sugar after eating a meal...Those who drank the whey mixture before the meal had protection from the high-glucose meal. Blood-glucose levels were reduced by a whopping 28% compared to those who did not drink the whey...

Both insulin and C-peptide, which is part of insulin, were both higher, some 105% & 43%, respectively, in the whey protein group.  Also, an early insulin response was noted to be 96% higher among those who ingested the whey.

Metformin http://www.drmicozzi.com/insiders-cures-subscribers/truth-about-metformin
"Originally, metformin was known under the trade name Glucophage...

As a drug it was actually 1st synthesized in the 1920’s...quickly overshadowed by the Nobel prize-winning discovery of the role of insulin in the treatment of diabetes...
This drug actually stems from a flowering plant called Galega officinalis, more commonly known as French lilac or goat’s rue. The active ingredient is a chemical biguanide known as Galegine, after the botanical name of the plant.  As an herbal extract, Galegine was used traditionally to treat people with polyuria (excessive urination due to excess sugar in the urine) & sweet odor on the breath. Today, we recognize these as two leading symptoms of untreated diabetes.  References date as far back as ancient Egypt & it was in common use in Medieval Europe. The herbal treatment was featured in an English medical treatise by Culpepper in the 17th  century. It was studied at the University of Edinburgh, a leading medical center of the 18th century from which the 1st medical school in America was established in 1765.
It has also been used in Asia to treat influenza & is said to have antibiotic, antiviral, antimalarial, & antipyretic (fever) activities...
Prolonged use of metformin can cause a deficiency in vitamin B12. Especially in those suffering from peripheral neuropathy...Look for a vitamin B complex that contains 100 mg each of vitamins B1 (as thiamine), B2 (as riboflavin), B3 (as niacinamide), B5 (as pantethene), 100 mg B6 (as pyridoxine) & 1,000 mcg of B12 (as cyanocobalamine)."
RECOMMENDED daily vitamins/herbs: Alpha Lipoic Acid (ALA): 300 mg + (especially)
400-500 mg, (Ceylon) Cinnamon: 1 gram (food quantity)
+ Coenzyme Q10: 150 mg (preferably non GMO, organic in vegetarian capsule)
Metformin - https://www.nytimes.com/2016/05/15/magazine/warburg-effect-an-old-idea-revived-starve-cancer-to-death.html - The (fairly safe plus inexpensive) metabolic “drug, metformin, is already widely prescribed to decrease the glucose in the blood of diabetics (76.9 million metformin prescriptions were filled in the United States in 2014)In the years ahead, it’s likely to be used to treat or at least to prevent some cancers. Because metformin can influence a number of metabolic pathways, the precise mechanism by which it achieves its anticancer effects remains a source of debate. But the results of numerous epidemiological studies have been striking. Diabetics taking metformin seem to be significantly less likely to develop cancer than diabetics who don’t & significantly less likely to die from the disease when they do…
Near the end of his life, Dr. Otto Warburg grew obsessed with his diet. He believed that most cancer was preventable and thought that chemicals added to food & used in agriculture could cause tumors by interfering with respiration. He stopped eating bread unless it was baked in his own home. He would drink milk only if it came from a special herd of cows, & used a centrifuge at his lab to make his cream & butter…
The insulin hypothesis can be traced to the research of Lewis Cantley, the director of the Meyer Cancer Center at Weill Cornell Medical College. In the 1980s, Cantley discovered how insulin, which is released by the pancreas & tells cells to take up glucose, influences what happens inside a cell. Cantley now refers to insulin and a closely related hormone, IGF-1 (insulinlike growth factor 1), as “the champion” activators of metabolic proteins linked to cancer. He’s beginning to see evidence, he says, that in some cases, 'it really is insulin itself that’s getting the tumor started.' 1 way to think about the Warburg effect, says Cantley, is as the insulin, or IGF-1, signaling pathway “gone awry.  It’s cells behaving as though insulin were telling it to take up glucose all the time and to grow.” Cantley, who avoids eating sugar as much as he can, is currently studying the effects of diet on mice that have the mutations that are commonly found in colorectal & other cancers. He says that the effects of a sugary diet on colorectal, breast and other cancer models 'looks very impressive' & 'rather scary.'  Elevated insulin is also strongly associated with obesity…

Cautions - DANGER

Artificial sweetener Aspartamine [NutraSweet, Spoonfulls, or (blue packaged) Equal] is DANGEROUS [as well as (yellow packaged) sucralose/Splenda and (pink packaged) Sweet-n-Low (saccharin)*] & is often found in diet sodas.  50% of aspartame is phenylalanine, an amino acid.  Too much in the brain causes serotonin to drop, leading to depression, craving for carbohydrates, and brain tumors.  40% of aspartame is aspartic acid, an amino acid, that when NOT bound to protein causes an increase in aspartate, which may contribute to epilepsy, Alzheimer's, Parkinson's, & fetus damage.  Same may apply to glutamate.  10% of aspartame is methanol (wood alcohol) which converts to formaldehyde, which can damage the retina, optic nerve, DNA replication & the fetus.

Insulin and sulfonylurea drugs may double heart attack risk in type-2 diabetes. 
Type-2 diabetics may have high insulin blood levels as insulin is less effective. 
Insulin may thicken blood vessel inner lining & artery smooth muscles.
A fat cell protein hormone adiponectin may make insulin more effective.  However, the more fat mass, the less adiponectin.  The reduction of carbohydrates with regular exercise to burn off blood sugar and fat will reduce strokes and insulin needs. Body muscles are a primary user of sugar.  The more muscle the more sugar utilization.

- "Monsanto, an agrochemical company based in Missouri, is the largest producer of genetically engineered seed in the United States.
In 1901, they were originally founded as a chemical company that produced artificial substitutes for food and beverage products. The most infamous product being the artificial sweetener saccharin. Over time,
studies began to show that saccharin and other sweeteners revealed correlations to cancer and malignant tumors in animals. Since then, Monsanto has steered away from artificial additives, but can’t seem to stay clean. Annual protests are held against the agrochemical company to demonstrate the public’s displeasure with Monsanto’s practices. Not only do the protests voice a population against genetically modified organisms, but also against the dangerous pesticides Monsanto produces to kill of pests and insects." (+ animals and people).

"Stevia...studies...suggest (that in excess) it might be carcinogenic or reduce fertility. Stevia is a natural sweetener from the leaves of a plant in the daisy family. Its leaves are much sweeter than sugar and it has no calories.
Stevia is widely used in Japan and other countries as an alternative to sugar and artificial sweeteners. In the U.S., stevia can't be used in foods, but it can be sold as a dietary supplement. Some manufacturers are working to get it approved for use in foods in the U.S." 2/6/2008 - http://www.naturaldatabase.com
Sugar Alcohol - http://www.thehealthyhomeeconomist.com/avoid-sugar-alcohol-for-better-gut-health/
"Below is a table with the glycemic index (GI) of many common sugar alcohols and sweeteners on the market.
Note that a higher GI value correlates with a higher blood sugar spike when that particular sweetener is consumed.
The sweeteners in bold are sugar alcohols:"
Stevia 0, Erythritol 0, Mannitol 2, Lactitol 6, Xylitol 13, Sorbitol 9, Isomalt 9,
Agave 15-30. Brown Rice Syrup 25, Coconut Sugar/Coconut Nectar 30, Maltitol 36-53,
Raw Honey 35-58, Sucanat 43, Organic Sugar 47, Maple Syrup 54, Blackstrap Molasses 54, Evaporated Cane Juice 55, Raw Sugar (Turbinado) 65, Corn Syrup 75, White Sugar 80, High Fructose Corn Syrup 87, Glucose 100

"The big problem with sugar alcohols (and gut health) is that they are, for the most part, indigestible, which is why they are so low calorie in the 1st place. Indigestibility is not necessarily a problem when the source is a whole food...
When the indigestible source is a manufactured, highly refined, processed food (condiment/ingredient) like erythritol, sorbitol, mannitol or xylitol, that the body would not naturally encounter...
it opens the door to creating or contributing to gut imbalance...
The body’s inability to effectively break down sugar alcohols causes them to arrive for the most part intact when they reach the intestines. At that point, a process called 'passive diffusion' takes place whereby the sugar alcohol that was consumed draws water into the bowels. This results in only partial breakdown. The unmetabolized portion begins to ROT, creating the perfect environment for undesirable bacteria & pathogens to feed, thrive, and grow.
An imbalanced intestinal environment where pathogens & other undesirable microbes have a favorable place to exist is exactly the set of conditions that eventually compromise the gut lining, damage the critical enterocytes that line the gut wall, and promote the development of autoimmune disease symptoms."

"Rodents, chickens, rabbits, pigs and students fed sugar and carbohydrates, he said, invariably showed raised blood levels of triglycerides (a fat), which was then, as now, considered a risk factor for heart disease.
Sugar also raised insulin levels, linking it directly to type 2 diabetes…When devising their low-fat products, manufacturers had needed a fat substitute to stop the food from tasting like cardboard, so they had jumped for sugar.
The new 'healthy' foods were low-fat but had sugar by the spoonful and Yudkin’s findings threatened to disrupt a very profitable business…
Researchers found fructose, one of the 2 main carbohydrates in refined sugar, is primarily metabolized by the liver; while glucose (found in starchy food like bread and potatoes) is metabolized by all cells. This means consuming excessive fructose extra strain on the liver which then converts fructose to fat. This induces a condition known as insulin resistance, or metabolic syndrome, which doctors now generally acknowledge to be the major risk factor for heart disease, diabetes and obesity, as well as a possible factor for many cancers…
There’s 'invisible' sugar in everything from processed food and orange juice to coleslaw & yogurt."

Unique Research

Cinnamon - http://www.whfoods.com/genpage.php?tname=newtip&dbid=31 - Scientifically speaking, there is only one true cinnamon, which is most commonly called "Ceylon cinnamon," and comes from the plant Cinnamomum zeylanicum. An alternative scientific name for Ceylon cinnamon is Cinnamomum verum, which simply translates as "true cinnamon."  The term "cassia" never refers to Ceylon cinnamon but rather to other species of cinnamon, including Cinnamomum cassia (alternatively called Cinnamomum aromaticaum) and Cinnamomum burmannii. While most simply referred to as "cassia," you'll often find Cinnamomum aromaticaum being referred to as "Chinese cinnamon" or "Saigon cinnamon." You'll find Cinnamomum burmannii being called "Java cinnamon" or "Padang cassia."  Ceylon cinnamon is typically more expensive than any of the cassia versions.  Is also the cinnamon more closely associated with potential health benefits involving blood sugar regulation. However, since both forms belong not only to the same family of plants (Lauraceae, the laurel family) but also to the same genus (Cinnamomum). They share many characteristics.  In some studies on rats and mice, the cassia cinnamons have shown blood sugar regulating ability as well. 
What true cinnamon and cassia do not have in common is their coumarin content. Coumarins are naturally occurring plant components that can be quite toxic in large amounts. These toxicities tend to affect the liver and nervous system most directly. While the level of naturally occurring coumarins in Ceylon cinnamon appears to be very small & lower than the amount that could cause health risks, the level of naturally occurring coumarins in the cassia cinnamons appears to be higher.

From Cocaine Through High Fructose Corn Syrup, the Story of Coke - Mark Pendergrast, author of For God, Country & Coca-Cola - 6/12/2013 - MP: Coca-Cola, invented in 1886, was a patent medicine that treated headaches, hangovers,
a mythical disease called neurasthenia, and other ailments. It had a small quantity of cocaine & quite a bit of caffeine in it. At 1st it was sold primarily with medicinal claims, but by 1895 many consumers, especially women, were writing to the company to complain that they liked the drink but didn’t want to have to be sick to take it...
When the Spanish-American War broke out in 1898, the U. S. government taxed medicines but not soft drinks.
They taxed Coca-Cola as a patent medicine, but the company sued, claiming it was just a soft drink, and won.
That was another reason they dropped medicinal advertising.
MR: I...learn in your book that patent medicines were the reason the magazine industry developed...
