This is not news to me... if you have read my book, The Confident Food Shopper.. but it is news generally speaking. Monsanto has always based its claims about Roundup safety on the ingredient "glyphosate" while ignoring the fact that Roundup also contains "adjuvants" which are supportive chemicals that increase the toxicity of the glyphosate. The same thing occurs in vaccines by the way.... adjuvants like aluminum (indisputably a toxin) are added in to increase the effects of the vaccines by triggering an immune response. The vaccine itself may or may not be harmful (depending on which one) but the adjuvants (mercury or aluminium) sure as heck are!

You can find plenty of non-evidence based medicine be it from mainstream or from "alternative medicine".
The difference is that some of the alternative medicines have a great safety record coming from hundreds of years of use. That is certainly not to be dismissed or without merit! And some alternative medicine remedies are perhaps just a waste of money... but not necessarily terribly harmful.
There are some natural remedies that have the potential to harm... don't get me wrong.
Both sides are guilty of bias and exaggerations... and cherry picking.
Consumers always need to be vigilant and rely on healthcare providers that they have a good relationship with.
There are few risk-free options but many lower risk options. Nobody fully understands how the body works and for years to come we are always experimenting and learning... studies for the most part just reveal the next layer of an onion...
The best things we can rely on are common sense and foresight... and being guided by principles such as "first do no harm" and "treat the root cause"... and both of those require looking beyond remedies to our environment.

50 years later this huge supplement company has not sold out to anyone.. still family owned and sticking to health food stores only! How do they do it? High standards, transparency and an up-close view of retail bring success for Now Foods http://www.newhope.com/people-and-company-profiles/high-standards-transparency-and-close-view-retail-bring-success-now

Oprah speaks out! #MeToo I have been sexually assaulted by an uncle and a man who I considered to be a grandfather to me. But I'm luckier than most... with an amazing father and brother to balance my experience.
