I was truly astonished at the amount of reportedly "safe" ingredients used in common consumer products - such as cosmetics and sunscreens, that can have extremely damaging side effects on the human body over time. Dr. Melikyan's works also expose the true nature of substances present in both red wine and green tea previously thought to be harmless and "natural". This information will not only raise your awareness, but also cause you to question the manner in which agencies (such as the FDA) approve the use of certain chemicals as acceptable.

The author presents the information in a clear, concise manner and the book is written at a level easily understandable by the average person. Having attended an award acceptance seminar honoring Dr. Melikyan for his contributions in these areas as well as others, I am thoroughly convinced that the general public should be aware of these facts.

This book is truly amazing! It goes against what every-day companies tell you are "healthy" products to consume. It provides the public with the information they need about what they are putting into their body. This book is perfect for people who want to know the truth about what they are consuming. It provides no-nonsense, definitive answers to questions that people have about what is healthy, and gives suggestions on what what to consume...and what not to consume.

The author has a clear understanding of the chemical components in certain foods & beverages, and he tells it just like it is. I know the author personally, having taken organic chemistry from him, and he is truly a caring individual who wishes to inform the public of the injustices that are all around us. If you have not gotten this book, I would highly recommend you to get it! Dr. Melikyan conveys the truth about the chemicals we are all consuming and gives us the information and tools to change our own lifestyle.

Did you know that the vast majority of cosmetics - and even baby products - contain a group of chemicals (parabens) that may very well cause cancer? Did you know that a variety of so-called antioxidants in foods that are touted to protect your body from harm have the ability to transform in your body into harmful chemicals and damage DNA? I was unaware of this shocking reality. But the question is: "Why have I been in the dark?" The answers are in Guilty Until Proven Innocent: Anitoxidants, Foods, Supplements, and Cosmetics.

Gagik Melikyan presents compelling concerns with regards to the consumption and use of current foodstuffs, supplements, and cosmetics while bringing needed criticism to the very federal organization that has been charged to protect us as consumers. He outlines what needs to be done and provides substantial research-based evidence to backup his claims. This book represents essential information that left this reader ready to take action, join the ranks of food advocacy groups, and apply pressure on elected officials to actuate required changes in the FDA.

The author provides the reader with the necessary background to wrestle with intellectually stimulating topics such as: what happens to chemicals when they enter your body; why tests done in a laboratory on "beneficial" chemicals are not reliable; good vs. bad antioxidants; the trend of natural food; why some of the food we consume on a regular basis should be avoided; why some cosmetics that we use over the span of a lifetime should be avoided. The topics are presented logically and the text is rich with primary resources for the reader that is well versed in science and wishes to explore the presented topics further.
