Despite the increased use and interest in natural food, we are still consuming more additives every year. We are all aware of the possibility of toxicity of additives....It is difficult enough to buy pure fruit juices, so many `juices' offered are only sugar, water, and additives.

"Wine has been prescribed as a medication for centuries. Researchers with the Department of Health and Welfare know why. Wine reduces the activity of several viruses that infect the human stomach. For example, wine kills herpes simplex virus--a cause of cold sores. The chemicals contained in the skin of grapes are the source of the benefits of wine. Red wine is better than white wine for this action. Pure grape juice is the best source of all."
"The principal ingredient of deodorant is a highly allergenic substance, aluminum chlorhydrate.... [Researchers] have discovered that rats exposed to aluminum chlorhydrate via spray developed chronic lung inflammation....
