Attacks on the natural health industry are increasing and will continue to increase as more and more of us turn towards natural alternatives and away from drugs and chemicals. The latest “news” was that nutritional supplements are ineffective at preventing disease and can actually be harmful to our health. More times than not, it is the drug companies and their marketers that are putting out this negative propaganda on natural supplements. And more times than not, these studies are not based on double-blind, placebo-controlled research. Interestingly, drugs are the third leading cause of death yet no one has died from taking supplements. Drugs also deplete the body of good bacteria, causing or contributing to over 200 symptoms, conditions and/or disease.
