Topic summary contributed by volunteer(s): Randy
Health food stores sell not-necessarily-so-healthy foods such as kombucha tea which may be associated with life-threatening lactic acidosis, placing people into a coma. Blue-green algae which may contain toxins that damage the brain (although chlorella most likely does not).
We may also want to be wary of health food store employee advice. Studies have shown that health food store employee advice may not only be inaccurate, but also potentially harmful to a person’s well-being (especially in regards to supplements).
