Hormone Therapy is Dead

|

"Is Hormone Replacement Therapy Dead?" I asked in March this year, pointing to a statement of the World Health Organization where the therapy was described as "a big mistake".

Not that we did not know for years already - Sherrill Sellman had done the research and published it in a two-part article in Nexus Magazine, which now is archived here.

The most recent study, which was described by Dr. Lori Mosca, director of preventive cardiology at New York Presbyterian Hospital as "the final nail in the coffin" of hormone therapy was published last week by the Journal of the American Medical Association.

News on the suicidal effects of antidepressants denied by FDA's associate director of medical policy, Dr. Robert Temple.

It was "inappropriate to present as an F.D.A. conclusion an analysis of data that were not ripe", he said.

Fired the doctor who made the studies on antidepressants and they declined him from the possibility to make any interview. Is this trasparency or pure propaganda?

Modern man is evolving and "Pharmaceutical Man" is here says a report in the New York Times.

Despairing GM firms halt crop trials

Paul Brown, environment correspondent
Thursday April 15, 2004
The Guardian

All the major biotechnology companies have abandoned GM trials in the UK this year and only one crop - a GM pea - has been granted a licence to be planted this summer.

The lack of applications, which peaked at 159 in 2000-01, shows a dramatic change in the fortunes of a technology which had the backing of the government but remains unpopular with the public.

Cyberkinetics Inc. of Foxboro, Mass., has received Food and Drug Administration approval to begin a clinical trial in which four-square-millimeter chips will be placed beneath the skulls of paralyzed patients.

European Commission Finances 'Consumer Campaign'

|

The European Union's Health and Consumer Directorate seems to have a habit of financing its own, 'critical' consumer campaigns. An example has come to light recently - a 'consumer' campaign in Italy, Spain and Greece, with the aim of telling people that food supplements are 'dangerous' and that regulations, such as the European Food Supplements Directive, recently challenged in the European Court of Justice, are therefore well justified.

What is significant about this is the thinly veiled pretense of consumer representation of this publicly financed campaign, when in fact those consumers who do use supplements in their daily health regimes are never asked nor even informed.

After attending an event organized by the Italian association Adiconsumand seeing that real consumers were quite conspicuously absent, I wrote a message to a friend in Spain, to tell about a similar campaign underway in that country.
