Heavy reading

Posted by eathealthy on Jun 29, 2013

This book goes into the scientific research backing the supplemental use of AHCC, particularly for liver diseases and cancer. Very informative but may be tough reading for some people.

80 pages of what?

Posted by odereviews on May 25, 2013

Congratulations to authors. 80 whopping pages about AHCC. This is very heavy reading. I think the abbreviation AHCC gets mentioned over 1000 times. If you have gone trough all the freebies that there is, maybe then you will pick this book. Use google image search and type "what the **** am I reading meme" to get a perfect review.
