Here are the results from last week’s poll.

As the saying goes, you can’t make an anti-depressant out of a hound’s ear. Well, maybe that’s not exactly how the saying goes, but regardless, the actual Health Canada approved product is Vagininum, which bears Natural Health Product Number 80012308 as proof of its safety and efficacy.
Before we talk about what’s in Vagininum, I should explain what organotherapy is for the unitiated. I like to think of it as the unholy marriage of homeopathy and Traditional Chinese Medicine, using animal organs as the basis for its homeopathic dilutions. Water memory becomes tissue memory, which practitioners believe will cure diseases of like tissues in the patient.
So when Vagininum says that it’s a 6X (1 part in a million) dilution of oryctolagus cuniculus — european rabbit — we know exactly what part of the rabbit we’re imbibing. And so let me be the first to say:
- And yuck again
Of course, like all high-dilution homepathic remedies, there’s no plausibility or evidence supporting its magical principles, but why let the facts get in the way of a ridiculous treatment? And this one is simply mind-blowing.
You know, when Health Canada’s baffling approvals regime finally drives me to madness, I’m pretty sure that — as the the men in white coats are dragging me away — I’ll be screaming something to the effect of “Soylent green is bunny va-jay-jay. It’s made out of bunny va-jay-jay.”
Don’t know how I’m going to top this one, but I’ll take a stab — your choices for the week are below. And remember, the real product “has been assessed by Health Canada and has been found to be safe, effective and of high quality under its recommended conditions of use.”
