In the past we were able to get good quality herbal products from small herbal companies, but many of these small companies have sold out to mega corporations. Are we sure we are getting the same quality of product or effectiveness that we had come to know and respect? According to Dr. Richard Schulze in his blog dated June 6, 2012, the following herbal companies have sold out:
* Odwalla Juice to Coca Cola
* Naked Juice to Pepsi Cola
* Boca Burger to Kraft Foods
* Celestial Seasonings Herbal Teas to Lipton
* Seeds of Change to Mars, Incorporated (the candy company!)
* Burt’s Bees to Clorox
* New Chapter to Proctor & Gamble
Traditional Medicinal Teas (Rosemary Gladstar) and Janet Zand (herbal products) have also been sold, but no corporations were named in Dr. Schulze’s blog(Schulze, 2012).

COMING SOON: Information on Proposition 37 up for vote in California which would require these companies to inform us on product labels of genetically engineered foods in the ingredients.
