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.

For the influence of electromagnetic waves from radio, mobile phones and other radio emitting devices, check out the emfrefugee group on Yahoo.

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.

EU LEGISLATION AND NATURAL HEALTH - The good, the bad and the ugly
The Alliance for Natural Health has compiled a simple but complete guide to European legislation as it affects natural health. The document explains in simple words the effects of several recent pieces of European legislation on our ability to take responsibility for our own health - to map out an effective strategy of prevention based on nutrition and nature's pharmacy. It also makes suggestions on how to step up to the plate and help prevent certain supplements from vanishing from the EU market.

Appendix isn't useless at all: It's a safe house for bacteria
How many of you had your appendix surgically removed "because it isn't needed"? Well, it turns out that the appendix may have an extremely useful function. Some researchers think the appendix re-boots the digestive system by preserving a stash of the 'good bacteria' that are absolutely necessary for breaking down and digesting foods to assimilate nutrients in the intestine.

Studies: Stored Blood Lacks Nitric Oxide
"It doesn't matter how much oxygen is being carried by red blood cells, it cannot get to the tissues that need it without nitric oxide," said Dr. Jonathan Stamler of Duke University, leader of one of the research groups. Blood vessels relax and constrict to regulate blood flow and nitric oxide opens up blood vessels, allowing red blood cells to deliver oxygen, he explained.

The second research team, led by Dr. Timothy McMahon, also at Duke, studied the changes in stored blood over time. Currently blood is allowed to be kept in blood banks for up to 42 days. After that it must be discarded. An estimated 14 million units of red blood cells are administered to about 4.8 million Americans annually. "We were surprised at how quickly the blood changes - we saw clear indications of nitric oxide depletion within the first three hours," McMahon said in a statement.

Evidence-based CAM for Cancer Advocates
The Annie Appleseed Project, the premier resource on CAM from the patient perspective, is planning a two-day conference that brings together advocates from many communities, as well as those with information on studies in CAM to strategize, network, and more, would greatly benefit those with cancer. The conference will focus on a multi-disciplinary approach - scheduled for Thursday-Friday, January 10-11, 2008 in West Palm Beach, FL.

Integrative medicine is 'new way of healing'
For me, health is more than the absence of symptoms or disease -- it is the embodiment of wellness. It is this belief that led me to integrative medicine and a new way of viewing healing. Integrative medicine combines the best of both conventional, allopathic care and complementary and alternative medicine, or CAM. Examples of CAM include traditional Chinese medicine (e.g. acupuncture, herbs), naturopathy, chiropractic, and mind/body medicine (yoga, meditation). Integrative medicine is based on the incredible power of our bodies to heal themselves.

How Hospitals Systematically Harm People
In the U.S. alone, an estimated 2 million people a year contract infections in hospitals, and nearly 100,000 are expected to die from them this year, according to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Although such statistics are deeply troubling, hospitals around the world also contribute to a subtler but equally insidious threat: They expose patients and staff to a host of substances and practises that can harm their health.

Cholesterol metabolism links early- and late-onset Alzheimer's disease
In fact, the brain needs a high level of cholesterol, according to Bu. "The brain represents only about 2 percent of your body weight, but actually has about 20 percent of your body's cholesterol," Bu says. "There is strong evidence that cholesterol is important for synaptic function and is an essential component of cell membranes in the brain, and I believe partial defects in the regulation of cholesterol metabolism in the brain likely contribute to the development of Alzheimer's."

Past research by others implies that neural synapses, the junctions that nerves use to send impulses and communicate, are particularly sensitive to cholesterol levels and that interfering with cholesterol transport and metabolism could cause loss of synapses and degeneration of nerves.

If "interfering with cholesterol transport and metabolism" is detrimental to brain function and can cause loss of synapses and degeneration of nerves, perhaps taking statin drugs, whose only function is to interfere with the liver's endogenous production of cholesterol, is not such a good idea...

A Man's Shelf Life
As men age, their fertility decreases and the health risks to their unborn offspring skyrocket. But men who attend to their health can slow down the reproductive clock.

"Despite the new research, there's still a big difference between the female and the male biological clock," says Muller. "When the female's alarm goes off at the end, that's it. For men, the battery slowly winds down. Yes, chance of problems increase as the years pass, but some men have significant DNA damage at 35, while others go on forever—their sperm is fine in their 70s."

Iowa Sues 78 Drugmakers Over Medicaid Pricing
owa Attorney General Tom Miller announced Tuesday that the state has filed a lawsuit against 78 pharmaceutical companies, alleging the companies inflated drug prices for Medicaid patients, costing the state millions of dollars over several years. Iowa follows the lead of more than 20 states that have filed similar lawsuits seeking to recover money they say was overpaid to drug companies. Texas has recovered more than $55 million so far, Miller said.

Breast cancer chemo may damage heart
Breast cancer survivors may face increased risk of heart disease — and doctors are debating if it's time to largely abandon a chemotherapy mainstay that is one reason for the problem. Drugs called anthracyclines are a breast cancer chemo staple despite a well-known risk: They weaken some women's hearts. What's new is research suggesting the drugs work no better than safer alternatives for most women.

As time passed, tamoxifen proved to be the anti-cancer drug that actually caused cancer. As a drug chemist, I was prompted to fix Big Pharma’s dirty secret. For one year, I attempted to offset the cancer side effect of tamoxifen by designing chemical cousins of it. Such attempts failed. All of its molecular relatives initiated cancer. The project was cancelled. The secret was kept. Tamoxifen remained on the market and continued its cancer scourge among unsuspecting victims.

Judicial Watch Uncovers New FDA Records Detailing Deaths in 1,824 Adverse Reaction Reports Related to HPV Vaccine
Judicial Watch, the public interest group that investigates and prosecutes government corruption, today released new documents obtained from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) under the provisions of the Freedom of Information Act, detailing 1,824 reports of adverse reactions to the vaccination for human papillomavirus (HPV), Gardasil, including as many as eight deaths related to the vaccine. Judicial Watch had previously obtained 1,637 reports relating to Gardasil on May 15, 2007, bringing the known total to 3,461 adverse reactions including eleven deaths since FDA approval.

HIV Vaccine strategy 'potentially dangerous'
On 21 September 2007, the pharmaceutical giant Merck called a halt to a phase II trial of a new vaccine candidate against HIV [3]. An interim assessment showed that the vaccine, long considered the most promising in development, failed both in preventing HIV infection and in reducing the viral load of those infected.

Dr Mae-Wan Ho: "This latest failure heightens concerns that the vaccine strategy may be fundamentally flawed and hence unsafe and unethical. Full disclosure of clinical and scientific data must be made mandatory."

Pillar of Academic Psychiatry Loses Medical License for Sexual Misconduct
An examination of Jack Gorman's rise to the top of his profession raises serious questions about the professional and moral standards of psychiatry's academic leadership who are touted as respected "authorities." Not least of the influences brought to bear on who is catapulted to academic psychiatry's leadership is the $$ value to the institution of their substantial ties to the pharmaceutical industry. Equally significant is that psychiatry's financially conflicted academic leaders exert inordinate influence on public mental health policies and expenditures.

The hidden menace of mobile phones
Using a mobile phone for more than 10 years increases the risk of getting brain cancer, according to the most comprehensive study of the risks yet published. The study – which contradicts official pronouncements that there is no danger of getting the disease – found that people who have had the phones for a decade or more are twice as likely to get a malignant tumour on the side of the brain where they hold the handset. The scientists who conducted the research say using a mobile for just an hour every working day during that period is enough to increase the risk – and that the international standard used to protect users from the radiation emitted is "not safe" and "needs to be revised".

The Radiation Poisoning Of America
The public has no vote, no voice, no choice. Chronic exposure to scientifically indefensible levels of DNA-ravaging radiation is now compulsory for everyone in America. This is why Garcia and Jasso are ill today; this why the industry enjoys unchallenged power to place dangerous transmitters in residential and commercial areas with unsafe setbacks and this is why untold thousands of Americans in buildings with transmitters on the roof are given no safety warnings, though they work and dwell in carcinogenic electromagnetic fields. In the meantime, the radiation industry rakes in $billions in quarterly profits, none of which is set aside for to pay for the national health catastrophe at hand.

Greenhouses That Change the World
Steve Bosserman reports on SolaRoof, an open-source technology that allows the passive use of solar radiation for heating and cooling - climate control. The first application are greenhouses, but use of the material for building living spaces is just over the horizon. Buckminster Fuller would have loved to have this material available for his architectural projects.

Global Warming: Prepare for Cooling, not Warming
The world is cooling. Global temperatures have declined since 1998 and a growing number of climate experts expect this trend to continue until at least 2030. This, happening while carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions continue to rise, is in complete contradiction to the theory of human-induced (anthropogenic) global warming.

?? The search for a vaccination against HIV has been in progress since 1984, with very little success. Traditional methods used for identifying potential cellular targets can be very costly and time-consuming.

The key to creating a vaccination lies in knowing which parts of the pathogen to target with which antibodies. A new study by David Heckerman and colleagues from Massachusetts General Hospital, publishing in PLoS Computational Biology, has come up with a way to match pathogens to their antibodies.

At the core of the human immune response is the train-to-kill mechanism in which specialized immune cells are sensitized to recognize small peptides from foreign pathogens (e.g., HIV). Following this sensitization, these cells are then activated to kill cells that display this same peptide. However, for sensitization and killing to occur, the pathogen peptide must be \"paired up\" with one of the infected person\'s other specialized immune molecules--an HLA (human leukocyte antigen) molecule. The way in which pathogen peptides interact with these HLA molecules defines if and how an immune response will be generated.

Heckerman\'s model uses ELISpot assays to identify HLA-restricted epitopes, and which HLA alleles are responsible for which reactions towards which pathogens. The data generated about the immune response to pathogens fills in missing information from previous studies, and can be used to solve a variety of similar problems.

The model was applied to data from donors with HIV, and made 12 correct predictions out of 16. This study, says David Heckerman, has \"significant implications for the understanding of...vaccine development.\" The statistical approach is unusual in the study of HLA molecules, and could lead the way to developing an HIV vaccine.

The major problem with developing a vaccine against HIV seems to be one of validation. This holds true also for tests and for the proof that is still lacking today, that HIV does indeed cause the symptoms of AIDS and how it does so. Until such time as there is a scientifically clean and properly published isolation of HIV, the virus, it will be next to impossible to arrive at a cure. That is why certain nutrients that most AIDS patients are deficient in show much more promise as a cure - and at least as a prevention of development of AIDS symptoms - than all the highly active (highly toxic?) retrovirals that are being thrown at the patients.

I have suffered from severe Electromagnetic Hypersensitivity ever since the advent of mobile phones, and I don\'t know what to do anymore. I can\'t drive, can\'t work at the computer very long until I become symptomatic, and I experience teeth-clenching anxiety to the point of having worn my lower teeth down. I\'ve mentioned this sensitivity to U.S. doctors, and they do nothing, though other countries recognize this illness. I don\'t even wish to call it an illness, because I know every one of us is being affected. I\'m unable to work because my body has enough trouble trying to adjust to the fluctuations in my own home, which I\'ve managed to measure with a gaussmeter I purchased.

Though I don\'t own a cell phone myself, I notice that my symptoms increase evenings and weekends along with the ELF levels in my home, with a considerable spike Friday and Saturday nights, and I\'m guessing that more people are using their cell phones to place calls in order to cement weekend plans.

I honestly can\'t believe that an industry is being allowed to radiate every one of us 24/7 and that I have no ELF-free living or work options open to me. Something is terribly wrong here. I seriously foresee a one in two cancer epidemic in coming years from the radiation, which is fueled by a blind trust most cell phone users continue to place in a greedy, overpaid industry to make us aware of the risks.

Thank you for the EMF group info!

How many people in the U.S. have electromagnetic sensitivities? It seems like this is recognized everywhere except in the U.S. In the U.S. they are calling it chronic fatigue, fibromyalgia, or chronic Lyme. I have all three.

My own personal hunch is that since bacteria were found to have a \'magnetic sense\', people with chronic fatigue, fibromyalgia, or Lyme Disease are all harboring chronic bacterial, fungal, viral, or parasitic infections that are merely responding to electromagnetic fields that favor their health, and not that of their host\'s.

It became conclusive that humans have biogenic magnetite in our tissues (magnetite crystals) in the early 1990\'s. Electromagnetic Hypersensitivity (EHS) is affecting a lot of people, and this Fe3O4 is a mixed iron and it one of the major ores or iron that is strongly magnetic. The article says Ferromagnetic crystals interact more than a million times more strongly with external magnetic fields than do diamagnetic or paramagnetic materials (deoxyhemoglobin, ferritin, and hemosiderin).

Also, Dr. Robert O Becker has written on this in his studies in the US and he has a few books.
