Some people just need something to rally against, I suppose, but I actually READ Feinstein's S. 1014 and nowhere in it is handmade soap even mentioned. Remember, S. 1014 would only be an amendment to the Food, Drug and Cosmetic Act--and the Act already excludes soap.

There are a LOT of well intentioned people working as an herbalist, a naturopath, or an aromatherapist. But not everyone has such lofty goals. (And every now and then you'll run across an  outright quack.)

I hope my "quack test" helps empower you to make a more informed choice. Because, at the end of the day, #ItsYOURHealth and it's YOUR decision.

Is child leashing "humiliating" to children? Or is this a ridiculous debate? Come see what I think and then share your thoughts:

Today In Pet Safety, we look at Washington and its DoH, which is requesting that Washington residents send in #ticks to help medical experts track tick-borne diseases. (Why don't more states do this?)

Accurate Health Info - No Sales Spiel
Introduction
My name is Lisa Barger and once upon a time I took the field of "alternative" medicine very seriously.  I never envisioned I would be spending most of my career critiquing the work of others but I quickly realized that someone had to step up and expose the quacks, charlatans and scam artists in my industry.

I won't tell you what to do, what supplements to take or what brands to buy what what I will do is give you the tools to make an informed decision.
