Shak products have peer-reviewed published clinical proof of safety & efficacy and this proof is easily located. Challenge Melaleuca or any other companies to provide a list of their published research (in accredited scientific journals). Click these two links - first for the list of Shak's independent clinical research on their formulated products and then for the list of members of Shak's Scientific Advisory Board...."
