FDA Ends Use of Antibiotics in Animal Feed

From Food Animal Concerns Trust

I am pleased to share some very good news with you about our legal fight to stop drug abuse on farms!  We believe that this is a remarkable victory for public health, and one that will ensure that American farms are healthier and safer places to raise animals.

Last May, filed a lawsuit against the Food and Drug Administration to finally end the use of certain antibiotics in animal feed-a practice that's contributing to the rise in drug-resistant superbugs and endangering the health of our families.

Yesterday, the courts ruled in our favor!

The presiding judge ordered the FDA to begin proceedings to remove two important drugs, penicillin and tetracyclines, from animal feed unless pharmaceutical companies can prove that it is safe to use these drugs in this way.

"This is a great victory for public health" said Steven Roach, FACT's Public Health Program Manager.  "The FDA has failed to protect our families from the spread of super bugs created on farms for far too long.  Yesterday's ruling is a monumental development in our fight to end drug abuse with farm animals."

FACT is very grateful to Natural Resources Defense Council, whose legal team represented us in the lawsuit. And a very big thank you to all our supporters who have helped put pressure on the FDA to ban the use of antibiotics with healthy animals.

Overeating May Raise Risk for Memory Problems

From MedicineNet.com

Older adults who ate between 2,100 and 6,000 calories each day were twice as likely to develop memory problems. The new findings are slated to be presented at the annual meeting of the American Academy of Neurology in New Orleans.

The more calories the adults took in, the higher their risk for mild cognitive impairment (MCI), which is the medical term for mild memory loss. People with MCI are at greater risk for developing dementia, but not all do.

The study involved more than 1,200 people between the ages of 70 and 89, including 163 who had signs of MCI. Participants described their diet during the preceding year in a food questionnaire. Read the entire article.

How to Stay Awake Naturally

From WebMd.com

With more and more of us getting less and less sleep, it’s tempting to reach for a Red Bull or an espresso when we feel sleepy at work. But consuming caffeine to combat sleepiness can lead to a vicious cycle.

The java jolt that helps you stay awake can take up to eight hours to wear off. Caffeine can also reduce your sleep time, alter the normal stages of sleep, and decrease the quality of your sleep.

How can you stay awake naturally? Try some of these 12 jitter-free tips to take the edge off sleepiness.

Toxic Treats from China Killing US Dogs

From ABC News

When Kevin and Candace Thaxton's 10-year-old pug Chansey got sick late last year, the couple assumed at first it was simply old age. The small dog started showing symptoms of kidney failure -- drinking water excessively and urinating in the house. By the time the Thaxtons got her to a veterinarian, Chansey's kidneys had shut down and she was in extreme pain. She died two days later. "It was so hard. It was just devastating," Kevin Thaxton told ABC News.

But the Thaxtons would go through the ordeal again just weeks later -- leading them to a new theory behind Chansey's death -- when their new Pekingese-mix puppy Penny exhibited the same symptoms, finally resulting in kidney failure. When Candace Thaxton stumbled on a Food and Drug Administration warning that there'd been an increase in complaints about chicken jerky dog treats made in China, she says she knew immediately what had happened to her beloved dogs.

Getting Adequate Amount of Omega 3s

Getting adequate levels of omega-3 fatty acids is one of the best things you can do for a healthy heart. Omega-3s, commonly found in cold water fish as well as some fruits and vegetables, are vital to the health of the cell membrane and also contribute to a healthy heart, a healthy brain and structural system health.


Krill oil is a source of highly bioavailable omega-3 fatty acids extracted from Antarctic krill (Euphausia superba) that contains phospholipids, which bind to the omega-3s allowing for better absorption.

These phospholipids are an essential component of all cell membranes, keeping toxins out and letting more nutrients and oxygen in. Krill oil also contains natural astaxanthin, a powerful antioxidant, and Nature's Sunshine's Krill Oil adds the cardiovascular benefits of vitamin K2.

Features and Benefits of Krill Oil with Vitamin K2 and Astaxanthin:

• Contains omega-3 fatty acids.
• Helps maintains a healthy heart.
• Supports healthy brain function.
• Provides joint and skin support.
• Is extracted from Antarctic krill.

Antarctic Krill and Its Sustainability

Krill represents the largest biomass on earth with an estimated 500 to 800 million tons of krill in the oceans. Krill are tiny crustaceans that are a critical food source for whales, penguins and other ocean animals. Antarctic krill are the most robust and sustainable source of krill.

Because krill are such a vital species to the oceanic ecosystems, harvesting is highly regulated. Trawling is only allowed during the main season and only 1% of the allowable limit is actually harvested. These restrictions ensure that the krill population remains sustainable.

Honey Kills All Bacteria Scientists Throw At It

Editor's Note:
Our neighbors took a trip to Argentina a couple years ago and brought back some of this honey. It was quite delicious, but we certainly had no idea it was so beneficial and potent!

The story:

Australian researchers have been astonished to discover a cure-all right under their noses — a honey sold in health food shops as a natural medicine.

Far from being an obscure health food with dubious healing qualities, new research has shown the honey kills every type of bacteria scientists have thrown at it, including the antibiotic-resistant “superbugs” plaguing hospitals and killing patients around the world.

Some bacteria have become resistant to every commonly prescribed antibacterial drug. But scientists found that Manuka honey, as it is known in New Zealand, or jelly bush honey, as it is known in Australia, killed every bacteria or pathogen it was tested on. Read the story.

Maximize Your Brain Health

Protecting brain health

Protecting brain health is imperative at any age, but this concept is particularly meaningful after 50. Scientific and medical wisdom suggest that some degree of cognitive decline is part of the aging process. The possibility of living longer and healthier lives are within reach, but brain health must be preserved while achieving this goal.

For this reason, it’s quite encouraging to learn that scientists have discovered that neurological structure and function can be preserved and even restored. We can now offer scientifically substantiated approaches to enhancing our cognitive health.

Factors contributing to the gradual decline of mental acuity

Various factors contribute to the gradual decline of mental acuity as we age. Recent studies suggest that inflammation, high blood pressure, elevated insulin levels, obesity, arterial inelasticity, and a condition known as metabolic syndrome are all risk factors that can lead to an accelerated decline in brain health.

Anxiety and depression can also predispose an individual to a deterioration of brain health. A good strategy for preserving brain function starts with preventing illnesses that are known to contribute to cognitive decline. The old adage “an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure” definitely applies here. Good nutrition and a healthy lifestyle are obviously beneficial to brain health and should be addressed daily.

A healthy neurological system is also dependent on keeping blood pressure and body weight in check, avoiding diabetes and its precursor metabolic syndrome, as well as treating depression and anxiety disorders.

Well-known dietary supplement ingredients support brain health

A number of well-known dietary supplement ingredients support brain health. Nerve cells (neurons) have a high energy demand, and for this reason, free radicals are abundant due to a high level of oxidative metabolism within neurons. Antioxidants scavenge these free radicals and thus minimize neuronal damage.

Alpha-lipoic acid is quite valuable for neuronal protection because of its solubility characteristics that allows considerable free radical neutralizing activity within nerve cell mitochondria. Inflammation is implicated in a wide variety of neurological disorders, including Alzheimer’s disease.

Ginkgo biloba leaf extract (GBE) is well-known for its neur-protective effects mediated through anti-inflammatory and antioxidant action. GBE has been used extensively for memory enhancement as well as in a wide variety of dementias.

Omega-3 fatty acids in particular docosahexaenoic acid (DHA), have been used quite frequently to combat neurological damage and inflammation.

Phosphatidyl-serine (PS) and related phospholipids are integral components of every cell membrane and are particularly abundant in brain neuronal membranes. In Europe and Japan, PS is sold as a prescription drug to remedy memory loss and learning deficits.

Acetylcholine is responsible for a wide range of cognitive deficits

It’s been known that a declining level of the essential neurotransmitter acetylcholine is responsible for a wide range of cognitive deficits (1). By boosting acetylcholine levels in the brain, cognitive deficits are usually reversed. One approach to increasing brain acetylcholine levels involves inhibiting acetylcholine esterase, the enzyme responsible for acetylcholine metabolism or breakdown.

Many of the prescription drugs used to treat Alzheimer’s disease and related dementias act as cholinesterase inhibitors. A naturally occurring cholinesterase inhibitor sold as a nutritional supplement is called huperzine A. This alkaloid is isolated and purified from extracts of the Chinese club moss, Huperzia serrata. Huperzine A has been found to be both potent and effective in elevating brain levels of acetylcholine (2).

Synapses--connections between brain cells

Recent research has demonstrated that cognitive impairment is most closely associated with a functional decline of the connections between brain cells called synapses. It appears that higher concentrations of healthy, highly functional synapses are directly correlated with improved memory and cognition.

Therefore, if brain cell synapses can be protected and preserved, then cognitive health can be maintained and perhaps even enhanced. It has been shown that magnesium is important to the propagation of nerve impulses that occur between cells. In fact, several neurological disorders, such as depression, have been shown to be related to low levels of magnesium in the brain (3).

These and other observations have led to efforts to increase levels of magnesium in the brain. Initial efforts proved to be futile because it was found that magnesium does not efficiently cross the blood–brain barrier.

Recently, it was reported that magnesium threonate facilitates the transport of magnesium across the blood–brain barrier, resulting in significant increases in brain magnesium levels, which in turn resulted in improved cognitive performance (4).

In this study, both young and old participants expressed an increase in cognitive function while taking magnesium threonate. Herbs that may act in concert with magnesium threonate in support of cognitive skills include gotu kola herb, Centella asiatica (5) and bacopa leaf, Bacopa monniera (6).

The brain, like any other organ in the body, is subject to the aging process. During this process, physical and biochemical changes in brain cells can lead to various degrees of cognitive impairment. This loss of brain function as we age is not inevitable. Scientific research has demonstrated mechanisms that explain cognitive decline as well as nutrients/supplement ingredients that can slow and even reverse the progression of age-related brain degeneration. Supplements provide a smart option for maintaining brain health throughout life.

New Product: Mind Max


Mind-Max contains magnesium l-threonate plus gotu kola aerial parts, bacopa leaf and ginkgo leaf—herbs well-known to benefit circulation and brain health—for a powerful brain boost.

Between the ages of 20 and 90, the average person loses 5–10% of his/her brain weight, with an accompanying loss in memory, attention and other cognitive functions.

Research shows that a decreased number of nerve synapses (the connections between nerve cells) may be responsible for this cognitive decline. Magnesium plays an essential role in nerve synapses. However, magnesium shortages have become common with the increase in processed foods and the lack of magnesium-rich whole foods in the diet.

Moreover, most forms of magnesium are not well-absorbed by nervous tissue. Researchers at MIT have discovered that magnesium l-threonate, a highly absorbable form of magnesium, can easily cross the blood–brain barrier and that it increases the brain’s magnesium level.

Benefit
Supports brain function, memory and concentration.

Nature's Sunshine Price Increase

Effective April 1, 2012

It is Nature’s Sunshine’s goal to provide you with the finest natural health supplements at the best possible prices. As you know, the price of gasoline, food, cotton and clothing have gone up dramatically in recent months. Nature's Sunshine is pleased to announce that they have successfully negotiated with raw material suppliers and other vendors, and were able to pass along a very moderate price increase of less than 2%.

84 products will not be affected at all. Certain product lines, along with some speciality products, have experienced a larger increase. These include the Chinese herb product packs (Yin and Yang), Ayurvedic herb formulas and some of the cello-packet box products (e.g. CleanStart and some of the System Packs).

Because some raw materials and manufacturing processes had higher-than-average cost increases, certain product lines and specialty products have experienced slightly-larger price increases. These include the Chinese herb TCM product packs and most of the pre-packaged box products (Tiao He Cleanse, Para Cleanse, Dieter’s Cleanse and Candida Clear).

MS - Another Approach

by Richard M. Cohen

All of the available drugs for MS are intended for relapsing/remitting disease. Mine is progressive MS, which accounts for more than half of all cases of MS. Right now, there is nothing out there that works to slow, much less stop, the deterioration. I am the square peg in the round hole, a neurological contortionist trying to fit into protocols to treat someone else’s MS. We keep trying them to see if they work; they don’t.

When I got home, though, I found a letter from a stranger in Iowa City telling me about an internist with progressive MS, a woman on the staff at the University of Iowa and assistant chief of staff at the VA medical center there. Pretty respectable credentials, I figured. This doctor believes in a different approach, one that focuses on electrical stimulation and diet. Read the entire article.

When Painkillers Kill

From AARP Magazine

From 1999 through 2007, the number of unintentional overdose deaths from prescription opioid painkillers — such as oxycodone, hydrocodone, methadone, and the fentanyl patch — more than tripled, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. In fact, these painkillers have now surpassed heroin and cocaine as the leading cause of fatal overdoses.

That's not to say every prescription painkiller is bad; quite the opposite. "When prescribed appropriately and taken as directed, these drugs ease great suffering in patients with otherwise severe chronic and postoperative pain," says Robert J. Friedman, M.D., a neurologist and pain specialist at the Palm Beach–based Headache & Pain Center.

But take too many painkillers, or combine them with potent sedatives — as actor Heath Ledger did in 2008 — and they can be fatal. Read the entire article.

11 Health Habits Help You Live To 100

A study published in 2009 in the British Medical Journal of 20,000 British folks shows that you can cut your risk of having a stroke in half by doing the following four things: being active for 30 minutes a day, eating five daily servings of fruit and vegetables, and avoiding cigarettes and excess alcohol.

While those are some of the obvious steps you can take to age well, researchers have discovered that centenarians tend to share certain traits in how they eat, move about, and deal with stress -- the sorts of things we can emulate to improve our own aging process.

Of course, getting to age 100 is enormously more likely if your parents did. (Recent research suggests that centenarians are 20 times as likely as the average person to have at least one long-lived relative.) Read the entire article.
