"[Davison] cites research that shows gluten to be the bad guy responsible for a huge range of medical conditions from autism spectrum disorders to schizophrenia to arthritis."It seems this season that gluten is the new fluoride.

Environmental pollutions including electromagnetic and geopathic stress play an increasingly greater role in our society." Hermann KepplerWiFi emits a magical field that will make you sick, it seems, but fear not - the magic of Himalayan salts is greater, and will sort you right out.
