New York Attorney General Targets Supplements at Major Retailers
The New York State attorney general’s office accused four major retailers on Monday of selling fraudulent and potentially dangerous herbal supplements and demanded that they remove the products from their shelves.
The authorities said they had conducted tests on top-selling store brands of herbal supplements at four national retailers — GNC, Target, Walgreens and Walmart — and found that four out of five of the products did not contain any of the herbs on their labels. The tests showed that pills labeled medicinal herbs often contained little more than cheap fillers like powdered rice, asparagus and houseplants, and in some cases substances that could be dangerous to those with allergies.

This is no surprise to me or anyone who cares about what they take. I think of those who say, "I take vitamins but I don't see a difference," I can say, I USE TO SAY THAT! Until Body Wise that is.... When I first was introduced to BW I thought is was just another GOOD vitamin with really nice people. Little did I know they were leading the was in quality and integrity in this supplement industry. T.T Tierny founded BW back in 1989 with the idea that he could manufacture state of the are supplements founded on science and NOT Hype. I know to many of my friends and family, I sound like a broken record...but when you know something of such great value, you must share it...Not because of anything else than that you CARE!
Friends and family, please please please stop shopping the box stores for something of such great value to your health and the future of your health. For me, I have erased many chronic issues...and at this time in my life I am thrilled to say that I have no issues... I had Thyroid Cancer 37 years ago....at the age of 23...you do the math. No other cancers, and now no chronic issues either.. No flue sense the the 90's... NO flue shot either!
Buyer beware PLEASE! If you are important to YOU and those that love YOU...Please be educated and do only the best for YOU and YOUR loved ones.
This is so important... Buyer Beware!
