In the Weight Loss Supplement World, “Doctor Recommended” Means Sweet FA!

Over the weekend, I surfed over to Science-Based Medicine, and scanned this post by pharmacist Scott Gavura about HCG and weight loss. It’s a well-written article, although if you’ve seen what Paul and I have had to say on the topic, in general, you won’t see much that’s new.
