This is especially true for those with pollen allergies.Once again, the proof is inconclusive, but it has been suggested that the high levels of selenium found in goji berries can cause birth defects.Don’t get me wrong – I am very happy for those people!! They basically said that these side effects were so rare and unreported; it was nothing to be concerned about. They told me about a concern around the drug causing depression, but their ‘statistics’ (and I use that term loosely here) stated the risk was as low as 1%. I had to wait for another appointment a month or two down the line and they would get me started with the medication.Stefan – a young man from England – is one of those unlucky people. They put an emphasis on skin dryness, but the list of the side effects I was shown was short. They also focused on telling me about the risk of getting pregnant. I also had to sign a contract, as did my Mum, to state that I’d been warned of the risks and what not.Excessive amounts of goji juice can interrupt your natural sleep patterns.Studies are still being conducted and the evidence so far is inconclusive, but there have been links to heightened allergy symptoms in subjects who ingested goji juice.
When consumed in moderation, goji juice doesn't pose many risks to the average person.
Note that before he took the drug, he never thought anything bad could happen him. It was sad stories like his that made me decide when I had severe acne that taking Accutane just wasn’t worth the risk. I had no reason to believe there was anything to worry about.
If that wasn’t bad enough (and, trust me, it was) I seemed to be the only one in my high school suffering from it. This was, of course, after trying different skin care products that claim to do things they can’t. I’ll skip some story here and tell you that I ended up being prescribed Roaccutane (also known as Accutane) after failing to gain any relief from antibiotics or topical peroxides.
I had acne on my face, chest, back and even got it on my upper arms and shoulders. Like anyone in the Western World, I assumed the best decision would be to turn to a doctor.
I was so excited at the thought of having clear skin.
