Texte du rabat

This authoritative book explains why the belief that natural and organic products are inherently safer and more healthful than those produced using synthetic chemicals and pesticides is erroneous. It shows how this mistake has misguided consumers, legislators, and government regulators, and has led to often-unrecognized serious health issues. In conclusion, it provides advice to consumers for more rational dietary and pharmaceutical choices and appeals to regulators for provision of more uniform safety standards for dietary constituents, pharmaceuticals, and botanical supplements.
