Dr. Farlow,

Please send 1 copy of FOOD ADDITIVES to the address below.

I originally found material from this book used (and credited) in SKINNY BITCH. I was intrigued about their source so I ordered FOOD ADDITIVES through interlibrary loan and it was sent from the Portland (Oregon) Community College.

I find the information so important that my husband and I will be taking our new (ordered) copy with us while we circumnavigate the Pacific Ocean; quite a compliment since our space weight will be limited.

Best of health to all,

Vancouver, WA

Dear Dr. Farlow:

In order for people today to protect themselves from harmful ingredients, even walking through a so-called “Natural Foods” or health foods store is not enough.

“Mrs. Gooch’s,” in Los Angeles, was created by a woman who nearly died. Yes, Sandy Gooch, was fortunate to have a chemist-father, as the story goes, who discovered she was literally dying from the chemicals in a popular soda that many people drink. Often this soda is even recommended to assist with “upset stomach!” Such products are so commonplace and present similar dangers to ANYONE who, unthinkingly, just drinks/eats/wears what is out there because it is convenient, handy or close by.

After Mrs. Sandy Gooch’s nearly lethal health challenge was reversed, she decided to create “Mrs. Gooch’s” as a way to protect the consumer. It was possible to walk through the store and NOT read the ingredients, because so much care had gone in to protecting consumers. But when “Mrs. Gooch’s” Stores were acquired, products began appearing on the shelves with ingredients that indicated it was NO LONGER POSSIBLE TO FEEL SAFE. Yes, products appeared that contained ingredients known to be harmful. Some naturopathic doctors even recommend that all so-called “healthy” oils, for example, are not so healthy and that it may be preferred to concentrate on specific oils that are better or healthier for us.

The point is that NO ONE IS SAFE, even in health food stores. It does not matter, it seems, where you shop. Even ingredients/products promoted as “healthy” or “safe” may not be so, may even contain allergens for some, and that is where your hard, dedicated work to protect consumers comes in:

The three books you offer have become ESSENTIAL companions to shoppers everywhere. If people want to make informed decisions, they have to rely on experts like yourself who are trustworthy and who do enough investigating to produce recommendations that will, in fact, protect us from all the many dangers that lurk out there.

As we go about our daily lives, oftentimes NOT thinking about what’s good to eat, what’s good to clean with, what’s good to use as cosmetics, toiletries and personal care products, we may even be using so-called “healthy” products with ingredients touted to be safe and found in health food stores that may, in fact, NOT be so healthy after all. So often, for example, it is possible to come across products that contain ingredients like chemical preservatives with the justification for their inclusion: “They protect against the buildup of harmful yeast” or “They are in very small quantities, so are not harmful,” etc. What such products/ingredients contain are POTENTIALLY LETHAL INGREDIENTS TO WHICH ANYONE CAN HAVE AN ACUTE ALLERGIC REACTION OR DEVELOP A LONG-TERM SUBTLE DISEASE WHICH CAN, EVENTUALLY, BECOME LETHAL.

Do consumers want to protect themselves and those they care about? What information is it possible to rely upon? Do we want to walk through product aisles and “hope for the best?” Or, to we want to read books you offer that are so easy, simple and well-researched that, finally, we have a way to protect our best interests?

Yes, your books offer us the safety and reassurance that it is possible to walk through the aisles as protected consumers!

If we care enough about our families and friends and business associates – anyone with whom we may share foods/products with, then it becomes our responsibility to walk through the aisles of any store armed with the protection offered from the many, many hours and years of research to which you have dedicated your career.

Yes it may take some effort and education to protect us, but your books make it so much easier. What is needed now is a way to walk into ANY supermarket, even “natural” foods/products and “health” stores, so that informed decisions can be made. With your books, is possible to choose products that – despite some information being shared to suggest that the products/foods are okay – will protect us in the long run.

It is so true that “You are what you eat.”

It is also true that the skin is the largest organ of the body and literally absorbs whatever is placed onto the surface.

Thus the stomach (eat) and the skin (body surface) both are conveyors of whatever ingredients placed onto or inside of our bodies. Even the water we wash with is not something we think about, but it is possible to install filters/showers that will protect our bodies totally immersed by water every time we bathe! Your books will protect any consumer who does not want to risk the ill health challenges and the eventual dangers that can lead to grave disease(s) and even death!

It is hard to think of anything more important! Do we want to live symptom-free? Do we want to avoid illness? Do we want to “Improve Health Maintenance?”

Everyone touts education as a “ticket to success.” Dr. Christine Farlow’s books are the TICKET TO SAFETY in living!
