Yes, I agree, Karen, we should all make informed choices about what we consume, especially with Hep C.  It`s also good to bear in mind that everything we eat and drink has to be processed by our livers.

In reviewing this list and their side effects- if I did not know better I would be running for my life - same as allopathic meds.  After 30 years of naturopathic/homeopathic personal studies, the benefits sometimes out weigh the risks.
