Most of their claims are not backed up by valid peer reviewed research. Also understand that if you eliminated every food, drug and environmental product that has harmful side effects you would be left with little in the way of effective treatments for the diseases known to man and there would be significantly less in the way of food for the world to eat. The bottom line is that life expectancy is rising across the world, due in part to the advances made in health care products.
