More information out there...

Of course there is much I cannot cover but other sources for this kind of information exist and are active.


The Alternative Medicine Yahoo Group is another great place to get information on what is happening in the world of nutrition and other natural health options.

If you are interested in a different take on the news that isn't health centered but is certainly fun, check out Robin Good TV News. You can watch when you want, but you can also send in your own video news broadcasts from your corner of the globe and likely have them published on that viral tv channel.

Some sites to keep up to date with the other side of world affairs, the stuff you won't find on tv:

European Commission issues "Orientation Paper" on setting maximum levels for vitamins and minerals
We find it regrettable, therefore, that the Commission has not seen fit to issue the Paper publicly on its website and that it has opted instead for a restricted distribution list that excludes ordinary consumers. Clearly, it would appear that the Commission has yet again seen fit to ignore the interests of the very people who potentially have the most to lose from the setting of such levels. As such, we remain concerned that the setting of restrictive maximum levels for vitamins and minerals could well result in the enactment of Europe-wide bans upon literally thousands of safe and effective food supplements, thus putting the financial interests of the multi-trillion dollar global pharmaceutical industry before the health interests and freedom of choice of almost a half-billion European citizens.

Access Denied - Health Canada sharply limits 'Natural Health Products'
While it is true that many NHPs will be able to comply with the new regulations, and hence in theory be “legal,” consumers do not understand that many, if not most, of the NHPs on the market before the regulations will not be able to comply because the compliance process is either too onerous or too costly. I am a lawyer who specializes in assisting natural health product manufacturers with the Food and Drug Act and regulations. I am acutely aware of what manufacturers are facing. I know of several manufacturers who have dropped much of their product line because it will bankrupt them to comply with the new regulations.

Natural Health Federation: FDA should stop treating supplements like drugs
Now, the NHF is using the FDA Revitalization legislation as an opportunity to prevent future Food and Drug Administration actions that really could go against the core of our health-freedom beliefs. In this case, it means putting controls on how an otherwise-unaccountable FDA, conducts any future actions to ban supplements based on its own illegitimate bureaucratic misinterpretation of the DSHEA law.

South Africa: Report acknowledges importance of nutrition in AIDS, Malaria but misses important details
The study report sounds like the reaction of Rip Van Winkle after waking up from 40 years of sleep. Its publication at this time must be questioned as politically motivated. In terms of the scientific evidence reviewed in the report, it is nothing new. The evidence linking nutrition to immunity has existed in the literature since the 1960s and the studies evaluating the impact of nutrients on the outcome of HIV/AIDS and TB have been around for a couple of decades. Nutritional researchers and health foundations (including ours) have been aware of this body of knowledge and have repeatedly tried to point out the value of nutritional intervention in the control of chronic diseases over the last decade. It is ironical but gratifying that the Academy of Sciences has finally caught up and embraced the pivotal role of nutrition in the management of chronic disease after having ignored it over several decades. Despite that, the report is highly selective, lacks conviction and ignores citing studies of important nutrients.

ConAgra to drop popcorn chemical linked to lung ailment
ConAgra Foods says it will change the recipe for its Orville Redenbacher and Act II brands over the next year to remove a flavoring chemical linked to a lung ailment in popcorn plant workers. The decision comes a day after a doctor at a leading lung research hospital said in a warning letter to federal regulators that consumers, not just factory workers, may be in danger from fumes from buttery flavoring in microwave popcorn.

The Hoax of Modern Medicine: Seven Facts You Need to Know
It increasingly seems like the only real disease in this country is the sickness of believing in pharmaceutical medicine. It's a kind of madness, actually: Thinking that a synthetic chemical can solve all your problems and put your life in perfect order like those actors shown in pharmaceutical television ads. I believe it will one day be viewed as a kind of cultural mass psychosis. When it comes to health, our modern world has lost its mind, and the so-called science backing it up has lost all touch with scientific reality. Modern medicine is a hoax. Science has been abandoned for marketing. Safety has been thrown out the window and replaced with profit potential. Ethics have surrendered to greed...

Bipolar Soars as Diagnosis For the Young
The astounding 'bipolar' epidemic among America's children has no scientific-epidemiological explanation. It is generated by child psychiatrists who misdiagnose normal, but irritable children who may be disruptive, as having a severe, chronic, disabling condition. The diagnosis of bipolar condemns a child to be "treated" with the most toxic drugs (antipsychotics and anticonvulsants) whose documented severe adverse effects pose life-threatening risks for children and adults.

Dr. Olfson acknowledged the potential harm for children in the Los Angeles Times: "the mislabeling of children and adolescents with aggressive or irritable behaviors as bipolar, an illness that is treated with powerful psychotropic medications, many of which have not been tested in children."

Apparently, the inclusion of "sub threshold" bipolar as an indication for drug treatment was entirely in error. Here is a blog post that explains how so.

"More money" is too simplistic for global mental health problems!
A major medical publication issues a call for more money for mental health programs in poor and developing countries. The World Health Organization agrees. Major media cover the story. So what is the problem?

Lipitor better than generic competition? Maybe Not
Pfizer is proudly touting a new observational study which found that patients who switched from Lipitor to a generic medication had an increased risk of heart problems. Fantastic -- avoid the generic and use Lipitor. Oh, but wait, as Peter Rost points out... There is only one teeny weeny problem. The most common reason for switching drugs is because the therapy doesn't work; when the drugs don't have the desired effect. So it is completely expected that patients who were forced to switch had a worse outcome. They may simply be treatment resistant. And Pfizer knows this...

Legal Action to silence critics of flawed GM paper?
the Canadian Ministry of Agriculture and Agri-Foods have resorted to SLAPP in Ireland and in Great Britain to try to silence the opponents of GM food in those countries (GM-Free Ireland Network and GM Watch).

The paper, co-authored by Shane Morris, reported that consumers at a farm store showed a strong preference for GM sweet corn over non-GM corn. In the journal article, the choice appears straightforward; the bins were “fully labelled” either “Genetically engineered Bt sweet corn” or “Regular sweet-corn”. However, when Toronto Star reporter Stuart Laidlaw visited the store on several occasions during the data collection period, he found that the sign above the non-GM corn bin was headed: “Would You Eat Wormy Sweet Corn?” Whereas, above the Bt-corn bin the equivalent sign was headed: “Here’s What Went into Producing Quality Sweet Corn”. So, although the journal paper appears to describe in some detail the care taken to avoid biasing consumer choice during the research, it makes no mention of the two kinds of corn being labelled “wormy” and “quality”, respectively.

Cancer fears raised over chip implants
When the U.S. Food and Drug Administration approved implanting microchips in humans, the manufacturer said it would save lives, letting doctors scan the tiny transponders to access patients' medical records almost instantly. The FDA found "reasonable assurance" the device was safe, and a sub-agency even called it one of 2005's top "innovative technologies." But neither the company nor the regulators publicly mentioned this: A series of veterinary and toxicology studies, dating to the mid-1990s, stated that chip implants had "induced" malignant tumors in some lab mice and rats.

Will hemp be legal? Here are ten reasons why it should
Good article and lots of discussion by way of comments. It makes sense to take the profit out of drugs. And clearly it's no civil thing to put smokers in prison. As for the workability of prohibition - there is a clear precedent with the disastrous moral imperative that led to illegal alcohol (and all the crime it gave birth to) in the 20s and 30s.

Fluoride, Teeth, and the Atomic Bomb
The article was commissioned by the Christian Science Monitor in the spring of 1997. Despite much favorable comment from editors, and full documentation, the story remains unpublished by the Monitor. By any yardstick, this report was an award-winning scoop for any national paper. The report offers a glimpse into the history of fluoride, a bio-accumulative toxic that Americans ingest every day. The authors, Griffiths and Bryson, spent more than a year on research. With the belief that the information should be withheld no longer, the authors gave their report to Waste Not, and others, with a short note: "use as you wish."
