This article is a warning that one cannot count on the high quality of old familiar brands of products. The reason is that large companies that are often secretly owned or controlled by pharmaceutical corporations and other medical product companies are buying up many natural food and natural product companies and then ruining the quality of the products. This is truly a shame, but does occur.
My own recent experiences. For example, I recently had the following experience. I bought some Shaklee soap and shampoo. Shaklee is an older natural product company that had and may still have a good reputation. However, when I poured some shampoo on my hands while in the shower, the product actually burned my hand. I had to wash it off immediately.
I have had the same experience with other food and vitamin products, including those from Standard Process Vitamin Company. We also find that most hair analysis laboratories today are not doing accurate testing. This is why we stay with Analytical Research Labs only. In summary, you may not be able to trust your old trusted brands of foods, supplements and other products today. They may be secretly being sold out to some evil companies.
They may tell the original owners of the companies that they wish to continue the tradition of quality. However, their real goal is to destroy the products and destroy the health of those who use the products so you will require their drugs, instead.
If you call the natural product company and ask if they were recently sold to someone else, they often will lie, or the employees simply do not know the truth. The entire transaction can be done secretly, in some cases, and purposely so. This can be so confusing for natural health practitioners and for the consuming public that it is almost unimaginable, at times. One day or one month a product or service is superb, and the next day or month, the same product or service has changed in some subtle way and is not healthful at all. It can be as simple as using a different type of sea salt, for example, in a blue corn chip, or different packaging.
NOT JUST CHEAPENING THE PRODUCT OR SERVICE
Raiding companies, as it is called, and then cheapening their products and services is bad enough.
However, the subject of this article is far more sinister. What concerns us is when the goal is not to cheapen the product, but to make it unhealthful. The goal is also to upset the consumer by faking quality and lying about their products and services.
OVERPAYING AND SECRET DEALS
To make things even more confusing, those who wish to destroy the products may buy the company secretly. Fake agents negotiate everything, and often with fake references, and fake everything to make it all look very legitimate.
In addition, drug makers and their allies often are willing to grossly overpay for the company, so the deals are extremely tempting for business owners. It tends to make the business owners believe that the buyer would not just let the company go into ruin, when in fact that is exactly what will occur.
You see, drug companies and device makers have so many billions of dollars that they do not mind “wasting” 50 or 100 million dollars on a natural food company, simply so they can ruin the products. This is the fact, today, sad to say.
Therefore, if you are a business owner, beware of anyone who is willing to overpay for your natural product company. And remember, the buyer may ot be who they say they are. The large pharmaceutical houses operate so many trusts and legal entities that finding out who is the real buyer can be impossible.
Once again, the goal is not just to cheapen the products and services, which is bad enough, but to actually make them harmful for health. Since they have no integrity anyway, they are not likely to report the changes they make to products to the Food and Drug authorities, so there little way to find out what they are doing, except for your personal experience.
So please be careful – both consumers and those who own natural product companies.
