US: Supplements Attacked in McCain Bill - Health Supreme NewsGrabs Tuesday, 23 February 2010

Those proposed new supplement regulations remind me of what we have had in Europe for a few years now. Who'd have thought the (EU) tail would ever be wagging the (US) dog... or is it a matter of McCain working for the same masters that control both of our respective areas? ... and yes, illegal doping was also used in the EU to "demonstrate the need" for a supplements directive. They aren't very original in their campaign strategies, are they?


USA: New Bill Seeks to Repeal Key Sections of Dietary Supplement Health
McCain’s bill is called The Dietary Supplement Safety Act (DSSA). It would repeal key sections of the Dietary Supplement Health and Education Act (DSHEA). DSHEA protects supplements if 1) they are food products that have been in the food supply and not chemically altered or 2) if they were sold as supplements prior to 1994, the year that DSHEA was passed. If a supplement fits one of these two descriptions, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) cannot arbitrarily ban it or reclassify it as a drug.

These protections are far from perfect. They discourage companies from developing new forms of supplements. New supplements may be arbitrarily banned by the FDA or adopted by drug companies in a way that precludes their further sale as supplements.

McCain’s bill would wipe out even the minimal protections contained in DSHEA. It would give the FDA full discretion and power to compile a discreet list of supplements allowed to remain on the market while banning all others.

USA: If Senator McCain Were Running Homeland Security . . .
Because a few highly-paid professional athletes took dietary supplements that were illegally spiked with steroids, Senator John McCain and his partner-in-crime Senator Byron Dorgan have introduced Senate Bill 3002 this month to require:
(1) comprehensive registration of all manufacturers, distributors, and holders of supplements; (2) prohibition of sale of any dietary supplement not on an FDA-approved positive list; and (3) burdensome reporting of each and every adverse event, whether serious or trivial, affecting dietary supplements...

Now, suppose, as scientist and author Durk Pearson has suggested, that after the failed attempt of Richard Reid (the terrorist shoe bomber) to blow up a transatlantic airplane, the government had reacted in the same way as McCain is proposing to do now.

That is, did Reid’s attempt mean that the U.S. needed to register shoe stores and shoe salesmen? Did it mean that the U.S. needed to create more regulations on shoe manufacturers? Did it mean that all new shoe designs had to be approved before sale by a shoe-design czar?

Official Recommended Intake for Vitamin D is Too Low
2,000 IU/Day or More Needed for Optimal Health
Vitamin D has been a natural part of man's experience forever, and 90% of vitamin D is derived from solar ultraviolet-B (UVB) irradiance. The health effects of vitamin D can be and have been determined from a variety of studies including ecological, observational (case-control and cohort), and cross-sectional studies.

Vitamin D helps both to prevent and to treat chronic diseases including many types of cancer, cardiovascular disease (coronary heart disease, stroke, etc.), congestive heart failure, diabetes mellitus (types 1 and 2), osteoporosis, falls, and fractures. It is also effective against infectious diseases including both bacteria and viral infections: bacterial vaginosis, pneumonia, dental caries, periodontal disease, tuberculosis, sepsis/septicemia, Epstein-Barr virus, and influenza type A such as A/H1N1 influenza. The autoimmune diseases include asthma, type 1 diabetes mellitus, multiple sclerosis, and perhaps rheumatoid arthritis.

Due to current lifestyles in the United States, most people do not spend sufficient time in the sun to produce the higher serum D levels associated with optimal health. Black-Americans are particularly vulnerable...

Electroshocker: A Prevention Special Report
The 'electrosmog' that surrounds us—from cell phones, WiFi, and commonplace modern technology—may be seriously harming our health. Here's how to minimize your exposure.

So how does the human body respond to this pulsing radiation? "Think of a magnet," explains Dave Stetzer, an electrical engineer and power supply expert in Blair, Wis. "Opposite charges attract, and like charges repel. When a transient is going positive, the negatively charged electrons in your body move toward that positive charge. When the transient flips to negative, the body's electrons are pushed back. Remember, these positive-negative shifts are occurring many thousands of times per second, so the electrons in your body are oscillating to that tune. Your body becomes charged up because you're basically coupled to the transient's electric field."

Keep in mind that all the cells in your body, whether islets in the pancreas awaiting a signal to manufacture insulin or white blood cells speeding to the site of an injury, use electricity—or "electron change"—to communicate with each other. By overlapping the body's signaling mechanisms, could transients interfere with the secretion of insulin, drown out the call-and-response of the immune system, and cause other physical havoc?

Highly Hazardous Pesticide Use
(link from - blog censored by Blogger. Check out his other site at )
Pesticide Action Network Asia and the Pacific (PAN AP) releases Asian Regional Report on Community Monitoring of Highly Hazardous Pesticide Use

“Exposure to these pesticides puts communities at high risk of developing severe permanent health problems such as endocrine disruption, which can be caused at low doses of exposure to certain pesticides,” said Bella Whittle, coordinator of the project and author of the report. “It is especially distressing that the most vulnerable populations, such as women and children, the sick and malnourished, and the elderly are disproportionately affected and cannot escape the sources of exposure.”

Pesticide exposure robs Yaqui girls of breastfeeding
(link from - blog censored by Blogger. Check out his other site at )
Long-term research led by Elizabeth Guillette, Ph.D., of the University of Florida found compelling proof that pesticides acted as endocrine disruptors and produced negative health impacts over the years to the exposed Yaqui indigenous communities.

Endocrine disruptors or EDCs, endocrine disrupting chemicals, include chemicals DDT and other pesticides.

Guillette’s latest research finds that some pre-adolescent daughters of mothers exposed to pesticide spraying will never have the ability to breast-feed their babies. With others there is uncertainly. Although there is breast growth some daughters lacked development of the mammary tissue needed to produce milk, or developed a minimal amount.

As the girls in the exposed group matured their breast size became much larger than normal, yet they had less mammary tissue and often none at all, while the unexposed girls were normal.

“A large study, using my techniques, was done in India showing the exact same results,” says Guillette.

European Commission to fund research into complementary medicine
The EC’s intention is that CAMbrella will address the ‘lack of funding and scientific cooperation that hampers this area of medicine’. The EC recognizes that CAM practitioners and a growing number of citizens of the EU are turning to complementary and alternative medicine ‘for disorders they feel cannot be treated with conventional therapy’. The EC estimates that the CAM spend by consumers now tops the €100 million mark. The EC envisages that the project ‘will help boost the well-being of European citizens by creating an EU-wide road map that encompasses the preconditions for future research within complementary and alternative medicine in Europe’.

Pharma researcher admits to faking dozens of research studies for Pfizer, Merck
Now being reported across the mainstream media is the fact that Dr. Reuben accepted a $75,000 grant from Pfizer to study Celebrex in 2005. His research, which was published in a medical journal, has since been quoted by hundreds of other doctors and researchers as "proof" that Celebrex helped reduce pain during post-surgical recovery. There's only one problem with all this: No patients were ever enrolled in the study!

Dr. Scott Reuben, it turns out, faked the entire study and got it published anyway.

USA: Dartmouth Hitchcock Medical Center to issue anti-ghostwriting code
Ghostwriting, which allows pharmaceutical companies to mask promotional advertising as peer-reviewed scientific research, endangers public health and enables the pharmaceutical industry to control and misrepresent medical literature, Lacasse said in an interview with The Dartmouth. Doctors may read ghostwritten articles that promote a certain medication in an apparently unbiased medical journal and subsequently prescribe the drug more often, he said. Because the scientific basis of these studies may be faulty or one-sided, ghostwriting can harm patients, he said.

Prozac, used by 40m people, does not work say scientists
Prozac, the bestselling antidepressant taken by 40 million people worldwide, does not work and nor do similar drugs in the same class, according to a major review released today.

The study examined all available data on the drugs, including results from clinical trials that the manufacturers chose not to publish at the time... When all the data was pulled together, it appeared that patients had improved - but those on placebo improved just as much as those on the drugs.

Widely-used diabetes drugs can cause heart disease and death, warn experts
Two US senators accused the makers of Avandia of attempting to keep evidence of the health risks from the public.

The US Food and Drug Administration (FDA), the medicines safety watchdog, responded by asking an advisory committee to look again at the safety of the drug. The British equivalent, the MHRA, said it is “continuously monitoring” the safety of Avandia.

In a report, senators Max Baucus and Charles Grassley said the FDA had not banned the drug because it was too “cozy” with drugs firms.

Australia: Kids on ADHD drugs `poor at school'
CHILDREN with ADHD who use prescription drugs to manage their condition are 10 times more likely to perform poorly at school than ADHD kids who avoid medication, a new report reveals.

The report also finds stimulant drugs such as Ritalin and dexamphetamine make no significant difference to the level of depression, self-perception and social functioning of a 14-year-old with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder.

Paxil Birth Defect Trial - Battle of the Experts
In the first Paxil birth defect trial that resulted in a $2.5 million verdict against GlaxoSmithKline in October 2009, the infant, Lyam Kilker, was born with three heart defects; an atrial septal defect, a ventricular septal defect, and an interrupted aortic arch, after his mother took Paxil while pregnant.

Why Retroviruses Appear in AIDS, Cancer and Autoimmune Diseases
This article is a classic by Cal Crilly, edited by Fintan Dunne
Cal Crilly's devastating analysis of AIDS, below, highlights the outdated science behind current treatments and shows the true causes and cure.

He takes us on a densely referenced tour through the largely unknown mechanisms underlying viruses, reteroviruses, cancer and autoimmune diseases. So this has implications far beyond AIDS.

Cal's treatise is based on existing mainstream scientific and medical research. The kind of research the vendors of medicine's magic pills simply ignore in hope it will just go away. Crilly makes it impossible to ignore. An eye opener!

It's one of the best articles explaining what AIDS is and isn't...

I knew what they were up to from the first I heard about it. That`s why I went my holiday to Mexico two days after it all started. People thought I was crazy, but heh! Didn`t they think the same about Albert Einstien?
