Thank you Joey! I can never get people to understand that just because something is 'natural' doesn't mean it's better!

And I can't believe that anyone believes all those scam 'supplements' on the market that claim to make you lose weight without changing your diet or habits. If these really worked everyone would be skinny.

Thank goodness. While no one wants to hear it, supplements should have a lot more oversight than they do. I'm not anti-supplement, but people should be conscious that when they take an herb or extract, they are getting hundreds or thousands of chemicals. If you take a drug, you are getting one or two purified chemicals, plus some inert carriers. It's all well and good that herbal supplements are "natural" and "grown organically," but there are as many growing things that can hurt or even kill you, as there are that will help you.

All the freaky people make the beauty in the world.

Finally ! I don't know what took the FDA so long to get these products off the shelves in the first place.
