It is estimated that the average person ingests 5 pounds of this garbage chemicals a year.  Although officially these chemicals are GRAS (Generally Regarded as Safe), they can not be good for our body.

There are many people who have arthritis, unexplained skin problems, symptoms of liver concerns etc.  Even if you have no symptoms common sense would dictate that all chemicals should be avoided when possible.

Although Milk alone is not good for you.  It might be wise, if you do indulge in Ice cream (like I have on occasion), that you pay extra and use only the brands whose label only list natural ingredients.

The focus of this site is to "educate, validate, and suggest alternative methods for the treatment of health conditions," which are not readily available to those who go through mainstream programs.

To help ensure good results, high quality foods and supplements are vital. Knowing that the cost of supplements can get overwhelming, we provide a wholesale store.
