So I see this drug company commerical for acid-reflux treatment, and it hits me. [View all]

The commercial is just going on about what acid reflux is, that it is a medical condition, and they have developed this great batch of chemicals that can treat it, and, after listing some bizarre side-effects, I'm urged to talk to my doctor about this company's great drug creation.

Maybe it was the fast food commercial that followed, but a light went on.

Did I just see one ad for processed and chemical-laden "food", and another telling me I have a medical condition if I have trouble digesting that psuedo-food, and that that condition can be "cured" by ingesting a different chemical concoction?

Is it really a medical problem if I can't digest well the formed, shaped, color-enhanced and preservative-laden garbage that is passed off as food?

Just boggled my mind.

Reminded me of some tv sitcom from years past where some therapist was trying to "cure" a person of his fear of flying, as if it is natural to be hurtling through the air in a tin can, tens of thousands of feet above the ground.

Maybe it's just me...
