Their sales were sure;
Lots of junk from China
They used as a lure.

Not only does it pose considerable health risks - including heart attack, hypertension, stroke, type-2 diabetes, sleep apnea, and certain cancers - it can also devour a person's self-esteem, energy level and outlook on the future. For those of considerable obesity, medical science has come a long way in helping them attain slimmer, healthier bodies.

Two thousand years ago, when acupuncture first came into use in China, it was based on principles that many Western practitioners believe in today.

"Platinum blonde is really big right now," says Mary Rakestraw, who attributes the trend to pop icons like Gwen Stefani and Christina Aguilera.
