Dr. Santillo is the creator of Juice Plus and has authored six books. Since 1978, "Smokey" has lectured throughout the U.S. and in many other countries. His work is receiving growing recognition in Europe, in particular. In England, his Herbal Correspondance Course is widely used as a primary source for the training of herbalists
