Health at Gunpoint: The FDA's Silent War Against Health Freedom by James J. Gormley tells the story of how the Food & Drug Administration has, at the behest of the food processors and the medical & pharmaceutical industries, fallen down on it's original job of protecting the health of American citizens. It's allowed all sorts of unhealthy additives and chemicals to be put into processed foods and it's done it's best to prevent consumers from buying vitamins, minerals, herbs and other supplements to enhance their health without prescriptions. If you have found a supplement that helps you with your diabetes, cholesterol, cancer, arthritis or other condition, the medical and pharmaceutical industry doesn't want you to have it. Certainly not without continual doctors visits or prescriptions so they can all continue to make their unrealistic profits.
Picture Perfect Corpse by Joanna Campbell Slan is the latest installment in the Kiki Lowenstein mystery series. I've enjoyed all the previous ones and fully expect this one to be just as good. (Haven't finished the first chapter yet :) ) One thing I will say about this series is that you DO need to read the books in order as the characters and the story develop a little more in each book.
