Dr. Wallach discusses a couple of news stories. The first concerns an article on arthritis that outlines the growing numbers of Americans who are diagnosed anually. Suggesting patients do low impact exercise and take drugs for the pain. The next story concerns a patient who was given tainted cartilage and later died from the infected tissue. Doc asserts that neither story was necessary because with the right raw materials the body can rebuild those joints. Without using drugs or having surgeries the body can rebuild by using the "Pig Pack Plus".
