now, UB doesn't have there an enrollment number. I'll guess a number: 150. And I'll do some math below. There are, actually MORE ND schools than what is listed: such as NUHS and SCNM.
002. the math:
(average tuition) X (4 years) X (total enrollment of these 5 schools) =
23,600 X 4 X 1859 =
really, over 175 million dollars, and I think I've low-balled it. That's A LOT of money being spent on an area that claims categorically to be "science" and yet contains huge swaths of what is PATENTLY science-exterior. HOW are they allowed to process SO MUCH money under an obviously FALSE position? And what's even better is that they claim you have problems they only can fix, therapeutically speaking, like toxins. But it's a fake problem, and they've a solution for it: detoxification. And that reminds me of racketeering: putting someone in a position manipulatively, and coming along and profiting from fixing that situation.
