About the Author

Dr. Christine H. Farlow, D.C. is "The Ingredients Investigator." She has been investigating and researching the safety of ingredients used in food, cosmetics and personal care products since 1991. She is committed to finding the truth about these chemicals, many not adequately tested and used far too often, by manufacturers in products we put in and on our bodies.

Dr. Farlow's interest in the study of ingredient safety started with the "Healthy Eating" classes she held in her office. Each class included learning how to read and understand the ingredients on food labels. This led to the writing of her first book, FOOD ADDITIVES: A Shopper's Guide To What's Safe & What's Not, first published in 1993, and now in its fifth revision, the 2007 Revised Edition.
Her awareness of the importance of the ingredients in products used on the skin and the potential for harm from unsafe ingredients absorbed through the skin into the bloodstream, led Dr. Farlow to writing her third book, DYING TO LOOK GOOD, now in its completely revised and expanded, second edition. It classifies over 1300 cosmetic ingredients according to safety and lists over 750 safe products and where you can buy them.

In Latin, doctor means teacher. Dr. Farlow takes this seriously. She is dedicated to getting her message out and teaching people about how the choices we make about simple things like the food we eat and the products we use on our skin can have long-term detrimental effects on our health. Many of the diseases we see today, like cancer, heart disease and diabetes are related to our lifestyle choices. And we have control over the choices we make.

The study of nutrition and holistic health has been a passion for Dr. Farlow since 1975. Before she ever earned the title of doctor, people were coming to her unsolicited and asking for her advice. It just seemed natural that the next step would be to become a doctor and make it her business to counsel patients in health and nutrition.

Dr. Farlow is a Doctor of Chiropractic with a specialty in Nutrition. She practices chiropractic and nutritional counseling at her office in Escondido, CA, and also does telephone consultations.

Dr. Farlow is a veteran at teaching people how to make healthy choices about what they put in and on their body. She has been counseling patients since 1984 and has helped thousands of people improve their health through chiropractic, nutrition and healthy lifestyle choices.

You too can benefit from Dr. Farlow's extensive knowledge and experience. Schedule a FREE 15 minute Consultation to discuss your personal health and wellness needs with Dr. Farlow. She will let you know if she can help you or where you should go to find help.

Dr. Farlow is the author of three health and nutrition books:
  • FOOD ADDITIVES: A Shopper's Guide To What's Safe & What's Not
  • HEALTHY EATING: For Extremely Busy People Who Don't Have Time For It
  • DYING TO LOOK GOOD: The Disturbing Truth About What's Really in Your Cosmetics, Toiletries and Personal Care Products... And What You Can Do About It
Her books evolved out of her teaching and her nutritional counseling. These were the tools she found that people needed most to get started toward eating healthfully, making healthy eating a lifetime habit and developing an overall health consciousness.

These books are a "must have" if you want to take charge of your health without investing a lot of time doing it. They are written in a practical, easy-to-use format so that you can start benefiting from the information in the books within minutes of first opening them.

About the Author

"This little book should be in every food buyer's possession.  I highly recommend it. Anyone who takes the responsibility of buying food ... should have this book as a guide. It gives the bottom line of what many of the common chemicals that are used in the processing of our foods do to our bodies. You don't have to be a PhD to understand what's spelled out so well in this pocket size book, you only have to have the courage to follow its inherent message and be well on your way to being healthy again."

"Buy this book now! Even though you know instinctively that many food additives are bad for you, you will be shocked when you actually read what these things can do to you. The rating system is very helpful to know which items are poorly tested and unsafe to eat, versus those that may only cause an allergic reaction. The book is small and I carry it with me every day."
