Story
Tagline
"With accurate information you can make an INFORMED choice. I can help with that."
Introduction
My name is Lisa Barger and when I began writing about "alternative" medicine I NEVER thought I would spend so much of my career trying to undo the damage done by the quacks, charlatans and scam artists in my industry.

Today I cover the good and the bad in all areas of health--not just alt med. Food safety, product recalls, studies on herbal remedies, child safety, pet issues . . . if it's a product your family uses, I probably cover it.

I believe that you don't really need someone to tell you how to exercise, what to eat or where to shop for products. All you actually need is accurate information so you can make your own informed choice. Or, as I've said for years now, "It's YOUR health. Don't leave it up to someone else."
