How long will CDC, FDA and so called "experts and scientists" continue to deny in order to defend the junk science and the interest of the pharmaceutical companies?


Row over autism link to vaccines

Scientists have raised fears that a mercury-based preservative used in vaccines may cause symptoms of autism.

US researchers at Columbia University found autism-like damage in the brains of mice exposed to thimerosal.

In the UK it is used in the DTP jab for diphtheria, tetanus and whooping cough and some flu jabs.

The study, in Molecular Psychiatry, has been challenged by various expert groups, who say there is no evidence that the preservative poses any risk.

Baby food manufacturers conduct cynical experiments on Russian newborns.

Scientists tested samples of the most popular brands of baby foods sold in Russian supermarkets. Results turned out to be absolutely shocking: 70% of samples contained genetically modified organisms (GMO). Some of the dairy and vegetable mixes were fully made of GMO!

Almost every package contains the phrase "Contains no artificial preservatives." Ecologists however decided to test several most popular baby foods of Russian and foreign manufacturers in order to see whether they contained any percentage of genetically modified organisms. It turned out they all did.

Dental problems will increase sharply in Kenya in the next decade due drastic changes in diet, the dental association has warned.

Research done by the umbrella dentists body has discovered that the complaints, also referred to as oral health problems, are the result of an increased consumption of sugary foods and drinks.

Consumption of sugar in recent years has risen threefold as Western foods, which are full of refined sugars, replace the otherwise nutritious traditional dishes.

Leading the pack is tooth decay, which affects people as young as three years in both the rural and the urban areas.

Lack Energy? Maybe It's Your Magnesium Level
Provided by Agricultural Research on 6/5/2004

Originally Published:20040501.

Most people think of calcium and phosphorus as the most important dietary components for bone health. But magnesium also plays an important role. It is involved in hundreds of biochemical reactions, many of which help keep not only bones strong, but the heart rhythm healthy and the nervous system functioning smoothly.

A study by ARS physiologist Henry C. Lukaski and nutritionist Forrest H. Nielsen reveals important findings on the effects of depleted body magnesium levels on energy metabolism. Lukaski is assistant director of ARS's Grand Forks Human Nutrition Research Center, Grand Forks, North Dakota. He and Nielsen, with the center's clinical nutrition support staff, showed that inadequate magnesium is associated with a need for increased oxygen during exercise. They found that during moderate activity, those with low magnesium levels in muscle are likely to use more energy-and therefore to tire more quickly-than those with adequate levels.

A 2002 study found vitamin E helps reduce symptoms of muscle soreness, inflammation and muscle weakness.

(CNN) -- If a weekend workout has you hobbling around the office Monday, you might want to reach for the bottle -- one of vitamin E that is.

Vitamin E may help ease muscle soreness from a rigorous workout, according to a 2002 study.

The vitamin acts as an antioxidant to protect cells from free radicals generated during a workout. The chemical buildup may cause soreness in the muscles.

Dietary supplements show promise in prevention of migraines

For years, Joan Rozen lived on Excedrin pills, too busy as a mother and teacher to bow to daily migraine headaches.

"They could get so intense I would get nauseated, but I just had to keep going," said Rozen, 60, of Binghamton, N.Y.

A couple of years ago, her son Todd, a neurologist, suggested that coenzyme Q10, a dietary supplement he'd studied for migraine prevention, might break her dependence on the aspirin-based pills. She began taking 150 milligrams daily and was told the medication could take a few months to work.

Making waves

Since Ernie Wise made the UK's first call in 1985, the use of mobile phones has risen exponentially. Now 50 million of us own them, and to meet that demand 35,000 masts have so far been erected across the country, with three times that number needed. But at what cost to our health? Rachel Shabi reports

To be honest, I don't want to hear that my mobile phone, or anything to do with what powers it, might not be safe. This is partly because I am sick of being told that everything is bad for me, but mostly it's just because I like my phone.

I don't remember - OK, with the exception of overseas texting - being significantly more sociable or employable in the days before the phone, and I'm not exactly glued to it. Still, I don't want to consider having to give it up. And I'm not alone in this sentiment.
