Information on drugs and treatment with an American focus.
A division of Public Citizen, this has detailed accounts of problem drugs but its nutritional information is basic. US based.

As it says, campaigners who don’t believe in the cholesterol and heart attack link. A lot of good material with links to articles from around the world.
