FDA Approval Does Not Mean Safe

It’s interesting when people ask if something-like DHerbs products-are FDA approved. The assumption is that the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is the authority on what’s safe, acceptable, and healthy. The FDA stamp of approval is not the criterion for safety or what is actually safe for human consumption.

The truth is that the FDA regulates food, drugs, supplements, personal care products-basically anything you put in or on the body. But just because something is approved, approved by government (FDA), doesn’t mean it’s safe.

Aspirin is approved by the FDA but yet in still aspirin kills some 25,000 people per year. So the fact is, aspirin is approved, but it’s not safe. Prozac is approved, but it isn’t safe. Deprivin is approved, but it isn’t safe. Coumadin is approved but it isn’t safe.

No drug nourishes your body, but what drugs do in fact do is pollute the body and harm the body.

Is it really wise to trust an agency that actually promoted smoking until the 1970s when we know that cigarettes and cigarette smoke kills and by the hundreds of thousands of people every year?

The FDA does not automatically serve the interests of the American people. The interests of the pharmaceutical industry are frequently considered, which isn’t surprising considering the number of people who work at the FDA also have career histories working for pharmaceutical companies.

Thank you for reading!

    Gotu Kola is very safe to take and one of the best herbs you could ever take. It's the best herb for the brain and brain function. India doesn't have the toxins like the United States does. There's nothing to worry about! Take it from me!

    Q: Is Crystal Body deodorant spray safe to use? It's supposed to be all natural No Aluminum Chlorohydrate, Fragrance and Paraben free

    A:

    Did you read the "BEWARE OF DEODORANTS AND ANTIPERSPIRANTS" article? "Also beware of crystal stick deodorants. If the brand only contains mineral salts (i.e. 'Naturally Fresh' brand), you can take a chance. But just make sure "aluminum" is not an ingredient in any crystal deodorant you purchase. And because manufacturers are sneaky and tricky and only care about profits, make sure the crystal deodorant doesn't list "alum" as an ingredient. Alum is short for "aluminum", as in ALUM-inum (Alum + inum)."

    Q: Thank you for always answering my questions. I have about two more. Okay, I'm currently living overseas where I'm limited on raw fresh foods (vegetables and fruits). I want to do the detox but I'm concerned that I won't have everything as far as raw food to be successful. I have access to basics (apples, oranges, bananas, tomatoes, avocados, melons, lettuce, cabbage, bean spouts, carrots, celery, peppers, green beans, peas, bagged nuts,) but nothing exotic by any means. Then I was told to safely eat some of the food in the local economy that we should wash it with a 5% bleach solution (is that safe...and if on the detox I'm thinking that would be a no go). Two questions?Given the mentioned availability of raw foods could I be able to successfully complete the detox (I don't have an issue with eating the same things over and over again) and two what can I do to clean local produce so that its safe for consumption? Apparently part of the issue is that they use human feces to fertilize. Thank you for your time and I look forward to your response

    A:

    Yes, it seems you have enough raw food available to you to complete the cleanse.

    In order to clean local produce, rinse thoroughly with apple cider vinegar to "disinfect" it. If apple cider vinegar is unavailable, just use water.
