Please send 1 copy of FOOD ADDITIVES to the
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,

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
“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
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
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
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!
