CO2 and Oxygen depletion - NewsGrabs 12 October 2008

Is Oxygen depletion more worrying than global warming?
Although the advocates of global warming continue to say that temperature is increasing, in the last ten years that has not been the case. We also have an extreme low of solar activity with little or no sun spots showing this year.

What we need is to get climate change out of the political arena. Too many interests are bad for scientific inquiry and debate.

And for sure we should look at the possibility that our production of CO2, even though it may not bring about global warming, could be the driving force for a different and possibly much worse problem: threatening death by insufficient oxygen, in other words, slow suffocation.

Ninety per cent of Olympic athletes use dietary supplements
Ninety per cent of the 11,000 athletes in attendance at the Games of the 29th Olympiad in Beijing used dietary supplements of some kind, according to the European Specialist Sports Nutrition Alliance (ESSNA). There was not a single supplement contamination case.

So perhaps Beijing marks a turning point for the industry. Just as the Chinese capital’s hosting of the event boosted China’s public image, so too has the supplements industry been given a lift by its clean Games performance.

Vitamin D a key player in overall health of several body organs, says UC Riverside biochemist
In a paper published in the August issue of the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition, Norman identifies vitamin D's potential for contributions to good health in the adaptive and innate immune systems, the secretion and regulation of insulin by the pancreas, the heart and blood pressure regulation, muscle strength and brain activity. In addition, access to adequate amounts of vitamin D is believed to be beneficial towards reducing the risk of cancer.

Norman also lists 36 organ tissues in the body whose cells respond biologically to vitamin D. The list includes bone marrow, breast, colon, intestine, kidney, lung, prostate, retina, skin, stomach and the uterus.

FDA Claims "Food Supplement" Deaths; Hides Details from the Public
USA Today conceded that "An adverse event can be anything from a concern that a supplement isn't working to a serious illness that follows consumption." And, FDA spokesman Michael Herndon admitted that of the five deaths and 85 hospitalizations reported, "Some of these deaths were likely due to underlying medical conditions."

FDA's method of gaining data is suspect at best and biased at worst. Their "Dietary Supplement Adverse Event Reporting" webpage states: "FDA would like to know when a product causes a problem even if you are unsure the product caused the problem or even if you do not visit a doctor or clinic." The measure of uncertainty involved in publicly soliciting adverse reports "even if you are unsure that the product caused the problem" is noteworthy.

In my view, there is nothing wrong with the FDA collecting data on adverse events, but if numbers are going to be communicated to the press, there better have been some checking of the facts and some details to put the data in context.

From rose hips for joints to blackberries for lung cancer - wild plants are being harnessed for new wonder drugs
They're bursting with health benefits, require no prescription and cost nothing. Research shows that Britain's hedgerow plants are full of vitamins and antioxidants. Furthermore, scientists are investigating their uses as medicines for a host of conditions, including cancer and high blood pressure.

Yes, it's time we started going back to making use of some of nature's treasures. The article is a good start, pointing to what's commonly growing in the 'hedgerow'. Thanks to Louise of ZeusInfoService for sharing.

Chemotherapy Doesn't Work, So Blame Vitamin C
The Sloan-Kettering study team seems to have missed the essential point that vitamin C is not just an antioxidant. Inside cancer tumors, it also acts as a prooxidant, killing malignant cells. Comments Dr. Steve Hickey, of Manchester, UK: "Essentially, the paper seems to be rather misguided and shows a lack of understanding of the dual nature of vitamin C in tumors. Chemotherapy has been shown by over 40 years of clinical trials not to work in the majority of tumors, and its use is counterproductive."

Chemotherapy drugs have come and gone; the five year survival rate for cancer treated with chemo has remained virtually unchanged for decades. Unfortunately, just over 2% of all cancers respond to chemotherapy. Specifically, one scientific review concluded, "The overall contribution of curative and adjuvant cytotoxic chemotherapy to 5-year survival in adults was estimated to be 2.3% in Australia and 2.1% in the USA . . . chemotherapy only makes a minor contribution to cancer survival.

GM is Dangerous and Futile
To their surprise, researchers found that the human genome might not be a “tidy collection of independent genes” after all…Instead, genes appear to operate in a complex network, and interact and overlap with one another and with other components in ways not yet fully understood.”

The Human Genome Research Institute said that these findings will challenge scientists “to rethink some long-held views about what genes are and what they do.”

Prince Charles Targets GM Crop Giants in Fiercest Attack Yet
"The reason I keep sticking my 60-year-old head above an increasingly dangerous parapet is not because it is good for my health," he said " but precisely because I believe fundamentally that unless we work with nature, we will fail to restore the equilibrium we need in order to survive on this planet."

Mercury toxicity: Biblical Text-Writing May Have Poisoned Monks
Medieval bones from six different Danish cemeteries reveal that monks who wrote Biblical texts and other religious materials may have been exposed to toxic mercury, which was used to formulate just one of their ink colors: red.

Kaare Lund Rasmussen, a University of Southern Denmark scientist at the Institute of Physics and Chemistry, suspects that ink used in the abbey's scriptorium was the culprit. Even today "one should really not touch, or much less rub, the parchment pages of an incunabulum," Lund Rasmussen said, adding that mercury "was used in the first place because cinnabar (a type of mercury) has this bright red, beautiful color."

Ignored: the mentally ill killed by drugs that are meant to help them
People with mental health problems and learning disabilities die on average 10 years younger than the rest of the population, according to the Disability Rights Commission. Obesity, diabetes, certain cancers and heart disease are far more common among people taking psychiatric drugs.

Physical health problems are often dismissed as part of a person's mental illness, something known as "diagnostic overshadowing". It can lead to life-threatening conditions being dismissed as "all in the mind".

Pfizer Manipulated Neurontin Studies: Experts
Pfizer manipulated the publication of clinical trials to increase use of its Neurontin epilepsy pill for other illnesses, while suppressing studies that did not validate those uses, according to several experts who reviewed Pfizer documents for plaintiffs in a lawsuit against the drugmaker.

Pfizer’s tactics included delaying publication of studies that had found no evidence the drug worked for some other disorders, “spinning” negative data to place it in a more positive light, and bundling negative findings with positive studies to neutralize the results, according to written reports by the experts, who analyzed the documents.

Strong Medicine: What's Ailing the FDA?
A chilling new report commissioned by the FDA’s own advisory Science Board describes an organization nearly out of control. “We were shocked at the appalling state of science at the FDA,” says Garret FitzGerald, MD, chairman of the pharmacology department at the University of Pennsylvania School of Medicine and an advisor on the report. “The analogy is Katrina. But we have to fix this before the hurricane hits.”

Drug safety is perhaps the greatest concern. The respected Institute of Medicine, created in 1970 by the National Academy of Sciences, recently labeled the FDA’s drug branch “dysfunctional,” saying it muzzles scientific dissent, inadequately monitors drug safety and relies too heavily on drug company dollars.

Prediction: This will be among the Nobel Prizes that the Nobel Committee will regret having awarded: for discovering a virus that has yet to be isolated, and for another that is claimed to cause a small percentage of cases of cervical cancer but is a boon for vaccine hawkers.

US controls bird flu vaccines over bioweapon fears
When Indonesia's health minister stopped sending bird flu viruses to a research laboratory in the U.S. for fear Washington could use them to make biological weapons, Defense Secretary Robert Gates laughed and called it "the nuttiest thing" he'd ever heard.

Yet deep inside an 86-page supplement to United States export regulations is a single sentence that bars U.S. exports of vaccines for avian bird flu and dozens of other viruses to five countries designated "state sponsors of terrorism." The reason: Fear that they will be used for biological warfare.

Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) Calls for Urgent Review of Biofuel Subsidies
Biofuel policies and subsidies should be urgently reviewed in order to preserve the goal of world food security, protect poor farmers, promote broad-based rural development and ensure environmental sustainability, FAO said today in a new edition of its annual flagship publication The State of Food and Agriculture.

Despite the limited importance of liquid biofuels in terms of global energy supply, the demand for agricultural feedstocks (sugar, maize, oilseeds) for liquid biofuels will continue to grow over the next decade and perhaps beyond, putting upward pressure on food prices.
