“The first shipment that tested positive for MIR-162,” Hecker Law Group attorney Jacob Hecker said,

“was destroyed by the Chinese in 2013. Afterwards all other shipments with trace amounts of the strain were sent back to where they came from.”

      • IMHO, we are ultimately responsible for our own health and should not rely on gov’ts to know what’s best for us. Doctors are just as brainwashed by the medical establishment as the average Joe, we’re all constantly bombarded by drug advertisements on TV, magazines… and yet few are aware of the inherent conflict of interest and subtle psychological programming that’s going on. There’s plenty of natural health and healing info on the web, ppl just have to take responsibility for their own health.
