Really? It's useful when prescribed by a physician for chronic kidney
disease. However, as for preventing colds, I am waiting for the good
scientific evidence.

Let's start simple, and settle for somebad scientific evidence. We can
more on afterwards.

Well, wrong. The cancer cure rate went to 50% for all cancers, and about
75% for pediatric cancers. Doctors are able to cure viral infections.
And prevent many infections with vaccines, like small-pox, chicken-pox,
measles, mumps, rubella, influenza, diptheriea, purtussis, and invasive
Hib disease. Doctors able to treat heart attacks and brain attacks
(strokes) better than ever before, saving many lives. Doctors are able
to treat diabetes, kidney disease, macular degeneration, immune
disorders and many other diseases, improving the quality of life and
extending life. Not to mention that trauma care is better than ever
before, saving victims of war, car crashes, gun shots and earthquakes
(assuming that they get there).

With modern medicine, we able to understand how disease come about (for
example, with cystic fibrosis, we know the gene that is defective, how
the gene works and thereapies that extend the lives of people with CF
from 5 years 50 years ago to over 40 years now).

So, being an allopathy doctor is something to be proud of, because
allopathy works, unlike conjecture-based medicine (aka, alternative
medicine or complimentary medicine).
