Behavioral Effects of Fluorides On Mass Populations
by Valdamar Valerian February 3, 1997

Note: Numbers in brackets [ ] denote end note references.

Much research on the effects of fluorides on human physiology was done by the Mellon Institute, under contract with major corporations that produce fluoride. Because of the policies of Mellon, which does not allow the decades of research to be accessed by the public except with express permission of those companies who contract with it, the data is not available to the public. However, there are literally thousands of scientific studies which list physiological effects of fluorides. There are no credible scientific studies which demonstrate that fluorides are safe to ingest. Studies which are paid for by parties who manufacture fluorides, products containing fluorides or have a vested interest in maintaining the status quo are invalid because of a conflict of interest. You cannot trust the fox to guard the henhouse.

Uncontrolled epilepsy linked to low omega-3 fatty acid level
Source: Life Extension
May 3, 2004

The American Academy of Neurology's 56th Annual Meeting was the site of a presentation on April 28 of findings from researchers at Emory University that the omega-3 fatty acid docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) is abnormally low in individuals with uncontrolled epilepsy. DHA is essential for nervous system development in infants and for the proper brain cell membrane development and function in adults. Because the body cannot produce sufficient amounts of DHA, it must be consumed by eating foods such as fatty fish, or by taking supplements.

Licensed to kill - facts the drug firms conceal

By JEREMY LAURANCE

The multibillion-dollar international pharmaceutical industry has been accused of manipulating the results of drug trials for financial gain and withholding information that could expose patients to possible harm.

The stranglehold the industry has on research is causing increasing alarm in medical circles as evidence emerges of biased results, under-reporting and selective publication driven by a market worth more than £10 billion ($28.5 billion) in Britain alone.

Do the print media hype genetic research?
03 May 2004   
Source: Medical News Today

This abstract from the Canadian Medical Association looks at whether the print media hype genetic research.

Abstract
Background:

The public gets most of its information about genetic research from the media. It has been suggested that media representations may involve exaggeration, called "genohype." To examine the accuracy and nature of media coverage of genetic research, we reviewed the reporting of single-gene discoveries and associated technologies in major daily newspapers in Canada, the United States, Great Britain and Australia.

 Statins for women: a complete waste of time?

By Anthony Colpo, April 30, 2004.
Source: The Omnivore

According to NDS Health, a health-care information services company based in Atlanta, more than 110 million prescriptions were written for statin drugs in 2001. Needless to say, a good deal of these were for women. Because women who take statins are every bit as susceptible to the toxic side effects of these drugs as their male counterparts (if not more so) it is only fair to mention that clinical trials have not provided any convincing evidence that statin drugs will save even one single female life.

You read right; controlled randomized, clinical statin trials that have included female participants have failed to show any mortality benefit whatsoever for the fairer sex.

Opinion: Public health warning: our leaders' seduction by science is dangerous
by Michael Meacher
April 29, 2004
Source: Timesonline.co.uk

WE HAVE reached an extraordinarily odd situation in the saga of genetic modification. The public continues to reject it, the supermarkets will not stock it, the industry itself has pulled out of GM cultivation, but the Government is still keen to go ahead. Why? Tony Blair said recently: “It is important for the whole debate (on GM) to be conducted on the basis of scientific evidence, not on the basis of prejudice.” But being mesmerised by science is at best short-sighted and at worst disingenuous.

Vitamin C, Animal and SIDS

Animals and SIDS
Source: Medical News Today

posted by Owen Fonorow on 26 April 2004 at 1:05 pm

Do aminals generally suffer SIDS? One of the biggest genetic differences is that they make vitamin C - a lot of vitamin C in their livers (or kidneys) and humans don't. Adjusted for body weight, animals make 3000 to 13000 mg per day. We do not find it surprising that many have suggested, even proven, that the primary cause of SIDS is a vitamin C deficiency.

AIDS Test Unscientific: Test Kit Makers Sued in Kansas
by Josef Hasslberger
April 27, 2004
Source: Health Supreme

The test kits used to determine "HIV positive" status in patients are deeply flawed - they were developed on the basis of faulty scientific methodology and assumptions and are without value in determining whether a person suffers from "HIV Aids", alleges Kim Marie Bannon in a civil suit filed under the Consumer Protection Act of the State of Kansas, US.

The legal action against the makers of Aids test kits CALYPTE BIOMEDICAL CORPORATION and ROCHE DIAGNOSTICS CORPORATION was filed on 12 April 2004 in the Sedgwick County District Court by Dennis Webb of Wichita Kansas.
