26. right, like how safe and effective ephedra is
wake up. the "wholistic health" industry is no different from any other multibillion dollar industry. look at the lobbying effort to avoid regulation, and look at the ephedra cover-ups. they ain't a bunch of barefoot flower children. they have killed plenty of people, directly, through unsafe products, and indirectly, through disinformation that prevented people from getting proven treatments for dangerous diseases. ask me about my dead niece.
