I received this article from the International Business Times about Drug Trials Neglect Children in my email today. It is more than a little disturbing.
Some researchers at Children’s Hospital in Boston reviewed nearly 2500 drug trials and found that only 12% of them focused on children. They also found that the relatively few studies that did focus on children tended to be single-center rather than multi-center calling into question their applicability to a more general population.
I’m with a network marketing company that, among other things, sells a nutritional juice product. I received an email this morning from my upline that made me think about artificial additives in our food. Someone had asked our MLM company if they could share the difference between our juice product with the juice product from a competitor.
It turns out that the competitor’s juice, which contains a lot of vitamin C, also contains sodium benzoate as a preservative. Sodium benzoate can interact with vitamin C and form benzene, an organic solvent that is known to cause cancer and liver damage.
