Study Finds Chemical in Curry May Help Clear Plaques
... curcumin - a chemical found in curry and turmeric - may help the immune system clear the brain of amyloid beta, which form the plaques found in Alzheimer's disease. Published in the Oct. 9 issue of the Journal of Alzheimer's Disease, the early laboratory findings may lead to a new approach in treating Alzheimer's disease by enhancing the natural function of the immune system using curcumin, known for its anti-inflammatory and anti-oxidant properties.

New trading patterns blamed for selenium intake decline
... average intake of selenium in the UK has fallen from 60 to 34 micrograms per day. The European recommended daily intake (RDI) is 65 micrograms ... geographical studies ... have shown a consistent trend for populations with low selenium intakes to have higher cancer mortality rates. And a study carried out in France ... which followed a group of 1,389 elderly volunteers to for a period of nine years, found that those with low selenium diets were considerably more likely to die from cancer than those with high selenium diets.

Still not enough folate despite fortification
Folate intake in the US has not met the FDA’s targets following the mandated fortification of enriched grain products with the B vitamin that began in 1998, according to a recent study. The study assessed that none of the subgroups met the FDA's goal of bringing 50 percent of women up to the daily-recommended intake levels. Despite significant improvements and widespread fortification, only 39 percent of white women, 26 percent of black women, and 28 percent of Mexican American women attained the 400 microgram per day target for folate consumption.

Treatment 'to neutralise all flu'
Scientists say they are developing an entirely new way of providing instant protection against flu. University of Warwick researchers used a flu virus naturally stripped of some genetic material to compete with other invading flu viruses. This slowed the rate of infection so much the body could fight it off.

HIV = AIDS: Fact or Fraud?
DVD - feature-length expose explains exactly how the 300-Billion-dollar AID$ fraud began, why HIV can not be the cause of AIDS, what the real causes could be, and who manipulates the public's good intentions while poisoning hundreds of thousands with toxic drugs that cause the very disease they are supposed to prevent.

Rice Industry: Keep Genetically Engineered Varieties in the Lab
Amid the lawsuits and rejected shipments, the rice industry must now decide whether to belatedly follow the coffee growers’ example. They can tell the government and five multinational GM crop companies, “No more GM rice trials!” Or they can continue to risk costly episodes of contamination.

India Halts Field Trials of Genetically Engineered Crops
An exciting development has taken place in India, where the Supreme Court has ordered the Genetic Engineering Approvals Council (GEAC) to stop all further approvals of GM field trials until further notice.

This follows a challenge by citizens to the proposed field trials of Bt
Brinjal (also known as aubergine or eggplant). Although the court has not yet ruled for the GEAC to stop the Bt Brinjal trials, or the Bt cotton which is already grown commercially, they did order a stay on further applications for GM trials.

Just Say "Know" to Prescription Drugs!
... a campaign to get one million people to go to their healthcare providers and ask, "What am I really putting into my body? What are the side effects? What are the alternatives?" The effort is called Just Say "Know" to Prescription Drugs and is driven by increasing evidence that many people are uninformed about the potential side effects of their prescribed medication and are not aware of less-risky alternatives. The advocates are declaring October "Just Say Know to Prescription Drugs Month" and have scheduled a conference in Washington D.C. on October 7th to officially launch the campaign.

Drug Makers Sponsor 'National Depression Screening Day'
Eli Lilly, maker of the antidepressants Prozac and Cymbalta, is the major sponsor, with Forest Laboratories (antidepressants Lexapro and Celexa), GlaxoSmithKline (antidepressants Wellubtrin and Paxil), Pfizer (antidepressant Zoloft), and Wyeth Pharmceuticals (antidepressant Effexor) providing additional support.

Martin J Walker's "HRT - Licensed to Kill and Maim"
In a society obsessed with security, there is no longer any possibility of a real debate on a subject such as iatrogenic death. When society is on a war footing, internal criticism diminishes to a smoking wick. Lights no longer burn for individual liberty, whether for those accused of terrorism or those damaged by powerful industrial interests. Perhaps even more important than this, in some perverse way, pharmaceutical companies take their marketing battles forward with the soldiers.

Medical 'reps' ban begins

"We need to be aboveboard," said Dr. Lawrence Shuer, chief of staff at Stanford Medical Hospital and Clinics. As a teaching hospital, "we have the ability to influence the future physicians of America."

It is part of a growing conflict-of-interest crackdown by medical centers to protect patient safety, the integrity of research data and training programs, and the reputations of their doctors. Yale University and the University of Pennsylvania have taken similar steps.

Well well, a step in the right direction...
