Are we being misinformed about 'Health'?
Can you remember when food was something you could eat and enjoy —
without having to worry about it? At second-opinions.co.uk, Dr
Barry Groves shows that most conventional 'health' advice today has little

medical and other scientific journals.
The Alliance for Human Research Protection (AHRP) is a national network of lay people and professionals dedicated to advancing responsible and ethical medical research practices, to ensure that the human rights, dignity and welfare of human subjects are protected, and to minimize the risks associated with such endeavors.
