by Leisa on July 9, 2010

“Never trust an expert! Ever wondered why so much health advice is contradictory? It’s because two-thirds of medical research is wrong or fraudulent” from the dailymail.co.uk As I’ve been saying for a long time – follow the money trail (and yes, this goes for natural medicine and supplements as well) – but it is much

Stop Classifying Food as Drugs!

by Leisa on November 20, 2009

Why oh why does the government want to regulate our food as drugs? “The difference between a food and a drug is crystal clear:  One is natural and one is man-made synthetic and prone to side effects.
