These are defiantly not the stories you see covered in the mainstream news.And Another Thing represents some of the best of Jenny’s e-Alerts from over the years. You will find essays in this collection that will have you laughing out loud in amusement and others that will have you shaking your head in disbelief.When Jenny Thompson started writing the HSI e-Alert five years ago, she never thought she would find something to write about every day. After all, it’s health. It isn’t the stock market or Hollywood, where something juicy happens every few minutes.Boy, was she wrong!Between the covers, youll get:* The truth about what’s really contained in commercial milk (and how to avoid it without giving up milk products)* The placebo myth (those “inert” sugar pills used in clinical trials often contain much more than a pinch of sugar)BR>* The surprising techniques used by drug company salespeople to manipulate doctors (and that manipulation is often more than welcome)* How the medical mainstream jumped through hoops to put a positive spin on study after study that revealed the grave dangers of synthetic hormone replacement therapy to address menopausal problems (all the while, of course, effective natural therapies have been available…without the dire side effects)* How the subsidiary of a well-known drug company knowingly sold contaminated blood plasma overseas (and nearly got away with it)And that’s just for starters.Whether youre a long-time e-Alert reader or if you just started reading it, you’ll find And Another Thing to be full of fresh insights, as well as misdeeds that will set your blood boiling and even offer a few hilarious moments from over the years.
