Reads headline - "Is this some kind of superstitious 'medicine' thing?"
As it turns out, only sort of. It looks like there is some legitimate medicine behind it, but there's absolutely no reason not just to synthesize the compound - leaving the bears out of the picture.
It also doesn't sound like a very effective chemical to begin with. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ursodeoxycholic_acid

A week or so ago I half-jokingly suggested M$ must have hired someone who's good at PR, given they're boycotting that dodgy security conference...
If I see another good thing about M$ soon, I'll have to conclude that's not a joke.
