The problem with government is it oversteps itself too often. It legislates where angels fear to tread.
For instance, in 1770s, the medical procedure of the time was to use leaches to bleed a patient. If a patient was strong enough, then he or she might even get better. The physician could then claim his “cure” worked.

Phytonutrients are found in plants and are said to have health benefits, such as lycopene which is found in tomatoes and is thought to lower the risk of developing prostate cancer and cardiovascular diseases. While there has been some cynicism surrounding the actual health benefits of superfoods, these are undeniably healthy foods containing anti-oxidants so no one can complain that we’re being encouraged to eat them.
One of the best of these superfoods is the humble apple. Containing a large amount of skin-friendly Vitamin C, apples are a great snack to ensure that you’re left feeling and looking (Read More....)
