FDA Forced to Admit Metal Fillings are Hazardous

Natural Health
As a settlement in a lawsuit, the FDA has reluctantly admitted to common sense. Mercury is a neurotoxin, therefore mercury in fillings can be hazardous.

Natural Health
In the old TV show, "Get Smart!" there was a line that Maxwell Smart used a lot, "Would you believe..." usually followed by crazier and crazier examples of things to distract someone. Well, you WON'T believe this one! Imagine a big pharma company that decides to study the numerous health benefits of Vitamin B6.

Thus, some have turned to supplementing their nutrition with vitamins and supplements. We don't think a thing about it. We just walk into a health food store, pick out a supplement and check out at the register and go about our way. We read and study, and find out what is best for our lifestyle. It is our choice. We can supplement our diet if we want. But, forces are amassing that are trying to put a stop to this personal choice in diet and nutrition!
