LAMB My question concerns the use of "natural" foods, not sold through retail outlets or drug stores, but by individual sales representatives operating at the local levels There is a great campaign to sell "pure protein" as a health supplement My 16-year-old son is an ac- tive participant in high school sports Many of his friends are taking this protein food He wishes to do anything that will improve his physical strength and general health His family Fun with figures By J.
