Codex Nutrient Reference Values Delayed - NewsGrabs Thursday, 12 November 2009

Codex Alimentarius takes a step back on Nutrient Reference Values
November 2-6, 2009, the 31st Session of the Codex Committee on Nutrition and Foods for Special Dietary Uses (CCNFSDU) met in Dusseldorf, Germany to continue its work in developing standards for global nutrition. Some 260 delegates were in attendance, comprised of various countries’ functionaries and international non-governmental organizations (INGOs) representatives...

Projected Food supplement ban in 2010 may contravene EU law
The Alliance for Natural Health said it was mystified why sulphur was excluded from the list of allowed minerals when the Directive already allowed a number of sulphate salts of minerals, all of which delivered sulphur to the body. The continued exclusion of sulphur means that key supplemental forms of sulphur, such as MSM (methyl-sulfonyl-methane) that is used to support, among other things, healthy joints, skin, nails and energy levels, cannot be properly legitimised in the EU.

The ANH submission also slammed the contrasting approaches to risk assessment used by the EU’s scientific evaluation body for foods, EFSA. The ANH was surprised to see that selenious acid, a highly toxic form of selenium used in ‘gun blue’ solution that has been responsible for the death of a number of children following its consumption, had been approved. In constrast, selenocysteine, a naturally occurring form of selenium found in a variety of foods such as mushrooms, was not.

Nanoparticles can cause DNA damage across a cellular barrier
The damage is mediated by a novel mechanism involving transmission of purine nucleotides (such as ATP) and intercellular signalling within the barrier through connexin gap junctions or hemichannels and pannexin channels. The outcome, which includes DNA damage without significant cell death, is different from that observed in cells subjected to direct exposure to nanoparticles.

Antimicrobials: Silver (and copper) bullets to kill bacteria
Dana Filoti of the University of New Hampshire will present thin films of silver and copper she has developed that can kill bacteria and may one day help to cut down on hospital infections. The antimicrobial properties of silver and copper have been known for centuries -- last year, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency officially registered copper alloys, allowing them to be marketed with the label "kills 99.9% of bacteria within two hours." Copper ions are known to penetrate bacteria and disrupt molecular pathways important for their survival.

How the internet reshapes healthcare
This video has been made to inform and inspire about the possibilities and challenges the internet and social media are offering to help in changing healthcare into Participatory Healthcare. It was used as opening video for Reshape 2009 in The Netherlands.

Lies About Marijuana Drive People to a Much More Harmful Drug -- Booze
Anti-pot propaganda drives most people to drink alcohol instead. But booze is far more dangerous than marijuana.

"The greatest concern to parents,” he said, “should be that their children do not get completely off their heads with alcohol because it can kill them ... and it leads them to do things which are very dangerous, such as to kill themselves or others in cars, get into fights, get raped, and engage in other activities which they regret subsequently. My view is that, if you want to reduce the harm to society from drugs, alcohol is the drug to target at present."

How about learning from history and coming to the point where we abandon prohibition of drugs altogether. Prohibition has never worked - we saw it on alcohol and gambling, when in the 1920 and 30s prohibition led to the rise of organized crime, we see it now on marijuana, where prohibition tends to push people to use a now legal but more damaging drug - alcohol. Drugs are not a matter for law enforcement - they are a personal decision to take or stay away from. The choice should be each individual's.

CDC revises autism rates to 1% of US children
In 2007, the reported numbers were 1 in 150. Today, those numbers have skyrocketed to 1 in 100, and some say the numbers are closer to 1 in 89. According to David Kirby, the data is due to be released any day now.

It is interesting that the modification occurred yesterday, Friday, the day traditionally known for burying news that the media doesn’t publicize. I don’t want to say there is a conspiracy, but why hide the data? Is the CDC trying to bury these numbers? Why isn’t the media shouting this from the rooftops? Exactly how common does autism have to get in order to get the attention, research and funding for programs it needs?

Review says reporting on Pfizer drug studies fudged
Analysis of a dozen published studies testing possible new uses for a Pfizer Inc. epilepsy drug found that reporting of the results was often fudged...

According to the report, when a company-funded study's primary finding wasn't favorable, that result was usually buried and something else positive was highlighted, without disclosing the switch.

USA: Rulings stop mandatory vaccination for Iowa hospital employees
If, as the NEJM reported, the live nasal flu vaccine used last winter was only 29% effective in adults, mandatory vaccination of employees who use this vaccine will still leave 71% susceptible to the flu and all that may imply regarding occupational spread. What kind of hubris mandates such an ineffective therapy, claiming it is critically important to protect patients?

Blackout: US Military Personnel Banned From Accessing H1N1 Critical Vaccine Sites
According to the Office of the Assistant Secretary of Defense for Public Affairs, the only blocking of websites Pentagon-wide was in 2007, when a number of heavy-trafficked sites that "used lots of bandwidth" had to be denied to reduce the wear on networks "to ensure they continued to be available for mission requirements."

That turns out not to be entirely accurate.

Video: Polish Health Minister on issues with the swine flu vaccines

Miscarriages after Swine Flu Vaccine?
U.S. health authorities have made pregnant women one of the highest priority groups for getting the H1N1 swine flu vaccine, but is it actually safe for pregnant women and their babies? Well, the truth is that miscarriage reports from pregnant women who have taken the H1N1 swine flu vaccine are starting to pour in from all over the nation.

Cardiovascular Risks from Swine Flu Vaccines
Now, researchers at Mainz University Medical Center in Germany led by Sucharit Bhakdi have added cardiovascular risks that are not generally appreciated. Animal experiments and epidemiological data suggest that over-stimulation of the immune system may accelerate atherogenesis (the build-up of fatty deposits or plaques on the inner wall of arteries).

A major hurdle to addressing the dangers is the lack of specificity in the self-destructive processes perpetrated by an over-stimulated immune system. It is now recognized that the innate, relatively non-specific immune mechanisms are just as culpable as the specific, adaptive immune mechanisms in the pathology of some of the most widespread human diseases including atherosclerosis, inflammatory bowel disease, demyelinating disease and non-infectious arthritis; and the list is ever growing.

Italian Physicians Refuse Swine Flu Vaccine For Patients
According to a recent survey conducted, six out of every ten Italian family physicians do not prescribe the A/H1N1 vaccine for their patients particularly those with heart diseases.

A member of the European Association for Quality in General Medicine (EQUIP), Gianluigi Passerini told L'espresso that he would not advise vaccination for his patients, adding, "This virus is not aggressive and there is no reason to force individuals to get immunized against the virus."

New York Swine Flu Vaccine Clinics Deserted
While the city’s health commissioner, Dr. Thomas A. Farley, said the clinics had the staff and enough vaccine to accommodate about 500 middle- and high-school students per clinic per hour — or as many as 31,500 vaccinations a day — a department spokeswoman put the total vaccinations administered on Saturday at 1,701.

So on Sunday, the clinics, operating out of public schools in all five boroughs, began offering the vaccine to pregnant women and increased the age limit for others to 24 from high school age. Still, the turnout was low: 1,749.

Poland Not Buying Swine Flu Vaccination Unless Properly Tested
(link from - blog censored by Blogger. Check out his other site at )
Poland's Prime Minister Donald Tusk said Friday that his government won't buy vaccines for swine flu that have not been properly tested or from producers who won't take responsibility for possible side effects. Tusk told reporters that vaccine producers were pressuring governments to buy, but were also demanding that all responsibility and compensation for possible negative side effects fall upon government shoulders.
