Godly gift for arthritis pain
Big Pharma is at it again… Creating and selling a drug that causes thousands of heart attacks and strokes each year. In 2015, the FDA asked drug makers to strengthen their warning labels.

I assumed by her appearance that she was in her late 70s. She was active and engaging. I remember thinking she looked great for her age. And then she dropped the bomb… She told me she was 109! I thought she was pulling my leg at first. But when she introduced me to her 75-year-old granddaughter, I knew she wasn't kidding. When I ask...
