There are very few people in US who cannot afford 3.70 a day if they 
want to, and most lower middle-class and up, could easily afford it 
with a little creativity. Considering the hundreds of peer-reviewed 
scientific data and funding for research from NIH etc., to anyone 
who is willing to do some investigating, it is easy to see that all 
the other 'cheaper' techniques are devoid of this. As a rational 
person, I prefer to spend more, and get well documented quality, 
rather than a possibly second rate undocumented technique. Maybe TM 
is not for the irrational.
