Unscramble the Blue Letters

In the midst of all this amazing tcnlohgoey, and all these things that are occurring, it's really interesting because there is sort of a counter-revolution that is going on: a resurgence of ieesrntt in remedies from the past, in nutraceuticals, in all of these sorts of things that some peolpe, in the pharmaceutical industry particularly, like to brand as non-science. But this whole effort is generated, is diervn, by IT as well because that is how we're gathering all this information, and linking it, and integrating it together. There is a lot in this rich biota that is going to serve us well. And that's where about half of our drugs come. So we shouldn't dismiss this because it's an enormous orouptipnty to use these sorts of results, or these random loose trials from the last thousand years about what has imactps on our health. And to use our advanced technologies to pull out what is beneficial from this sea of niose, basically.

Original Text

In the midst of all this amazing technology, and all these things that are occurring, it's really interesting because there is sort of a counter-revolution that is going on: a resurgence of interest in remedies from the past, in nutraceuticals, in all of these sorts of things that some people, in the pharmaceutical industry particularly, like to brand as non-science. But this whole effort is generated, is driven, by IT as well because that is how we're gathering all this information, and linking it, and integrating it together. There is a lot in this rich biota that is going to serve us well. And that's where about half of our drugs come. So we shouldn't dismiss this because it's an enormous opportunity to use these sorts of results, or these random loose trials from the last thousand years about what has impacts on our health. And to use our advanced technologies to pull out what is beneficial from this sea of noise, basically.
