Is Milk Thistle Useful for Viral Hepatitis Or Not?

From Green Med Info

Hepatitis C infection is quickly becoming an epidemic. According to Centers of Disease Control statistics, deaths from hepatitis C infections (HCV) doubled between 1999 and 2007.

HCV-related deaths have now surpassed HIV-linked deaths according to the CDC. And baby boomers account for an estimated three out of four HCV infections within the U.S. Viral hepatitis C is a leading cause of liver disease outside of cirrhosis – often caused by alcohol and/or pharmaceutical use.

Hepatitis C is an infection caused by a virus communicated through sexual contact, needle sharing, blood transfusion and between mother and child. The virus has infected some 170 million people around the world, and an estimated 3.2 million people in the U.S. are infected with HCV.

Silymarin (Milk Thistle) and HCV
The most convincing evidence for the treatment of hepatitis C with Silymarin was published last winter. The study comes from the Medical School of Iran's Isfahan University. The researchers treated 55 patients – 45 men and 10 women – with active and chronic cases of HCV infections with 630 milligrams a day of Silymarin for 24 weeks ... Read the entire article.

GM Corn With Roundup Causes Cancer In Rats

From GreenMedInfo.com

In an alarming new study published in the journal Food and Chemical Toxicology, researchers from The Committee for Research & Independent Information on Genetic Engineering (CRIIGEN) reported on the results of a 2 year feeding study in rats given either NK603 Roundup-tolerant genetically modified maize, cultivated with or without Roundup, and Roundup alone, at levels permitted in drinking water and GM crops in the United States.

The authors of the study pointed out that currently, no regulatory authority requires mandatory chronic animal feeding studies to be performed for edible GMOs and formulated pesticides, and the only 90 day feeding trials were conducted by the biotech industry.

This study, therefore, was performed in light of this need, and the results were an unprecedented confirmation of the cancer-causing effects of GM food and agrichemicals, reported as follows ....

Buttered Popcorn Flavoring Linked to Alzheimer's

From WebMD.com

The flavorant, diacetyl, already is linked to lung damage in people who work in microwave popcorn factories. This led many microwave popcorn makers to stop using diacetyl in their products. But now other workers exposed to diacetyl -- and possibly consumers as well -- may face another scary risk.

University of Minnesota drug-design expert Robert Vince, PhD, and colleagues find that diacetyl causes brain proteins to misfold into the Alzheimer's-linked form called beta amyloid.

 Moreover, the popcorn butter flavorant can pass through the blood-brain barrier and can inhibit the brain's natural amyloid-clearing mechanisms. Read the entire article.

Thyroid Treatment Guidelines Revised for Pregnant Women

From MedicineNet.com

Thyroid hormone is critical for normal fetal brain development, and hormonal problems among pregnant women must be properly managed, according to the Endocrine Society, which just revised its guidelines on treating thyroid-related medical issues before, during and after pregnancy.

Too much or not enough thyroid hormone can harm both women and their unborn babies, the experts said. The treatment guidelines update the 2007 version. Read the entire article.

Microchip-Laden Drugs Given FDA Approval

Rumors regarding the development of a 'digital pill' with a microchip inside have been circulating for some time, but today, the FDA actually green lighted the product.

The company, Proteus Digital Health, gained FDA approval for its 1 square millimeter device (the size of a grain of sand), which it believes will "shift the care paradigm" into an era of digital medicine.

According to Proteus Digital Health's website: Digital Medicines are the same pharmaceuticals you take today, with one small change: each pill also contains a tiny sensor that can communicate, via our digital health feedback system, vital information about your medication-taking behaviors and how your body is responding.

The company added "As a result, you can be sure you're taking your medicines as prescribed, while at the same time receiving unprecedented feedback on your physical response to treatment." Read the entire article.

New Disease for Statin Toxicity: Polymyalgia Rheumatica

Few drugs are as toxic to the organ they are prescribed to "treat" as statins. There are already hundreds of studies indicating that statin drugs are muscle-damaging (myotoxic) and nerve-damaging (neurotoxic), and yet they are somehow still legally allowed to be sold to millions of patients worldwide, ostensibly to protect the human heart -- which is, mind you, a muscle with an exceptionally high density of nerves.

After research published back in 2009 in the journal Cardiology found that statin drug use was associated with impaired heart muscle function, there is little doubt remaining that they do far more harm than good. In fact, no less than 300 adverse health effects have been linked to this chemical class of drugs. Read the entire article.

Rx Drug Deaths Triple in Decade

Inappropriately used prescription pain medications kill 15,000 people in the United States each year, according to a new report released by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

"We're in the midst of an epidemic," says CDC Director Dr. Thomas Frieden. "Narcotics prescribed by physicians kill 40 people per day."

Deaths due to prescription painkiller overdoses now exceed the number of heroin and cocaine overdose deaths combined, says Frieden, who is joining Gil Kerlikowske, the director of National Drug Control Policy, also known as the nation's drug czar, to raise awareness about how prescription drug abuse deaths have tripled since 1999.

1 in 20 or 12 million Americans age 12 and older have misused prescription painkillers like oxycodone (Oxycotin), methadone or hydrocodone (Vicodin) and middle-aged adults have the highest overdose rates. Read the entire article.

Dr. Oz on 7-Keto for Weight Loss

Dr. Oz called 7-Keto a “belly-blasting” supplement to “boost metabolism.” 7-Keto is a safe, natural by-product of DHEA, a hormone produced by our bodies.

As we age, DHEA levels drop. Supplementing with 7-Keto may increase the production of key thyroid hormones, which play a role in determining the body’s basal metabolic weight. Higher metabolic rates mean more muscle and less fat, especially when combined with diet and exercise.

A double-blind, placebo-controlled study published in Current Therapeutic Research revealed that 7-Keto is effective in inducing fat loss. All subjects participated in an exercise program and followed an 1,800-calorie-a-day diet. Researchers reported that those in the 7-Keto group lost an average of 6.3 pounds, compared to 2.1 in the placebo group.  Read more about 7-Keto...

Extra Virgin Olive Oil Fraud

According to Tom Mueller, the fearless author of Extra Virginity: The Sublime and Scandalous World of Olive Oil, 70 percent of the extra virgin olive oil sold worldwide is watered down with other oils and enhancers making them far from virgins.

Mueller exposes the billion dollar industry, showing how EVOO is compromised world-wide. During volunteer testing by suppliers to authenticate what they thought were pure extra virgin olive oils, every brand submitted in Australia during 2012 failed the tests and none gained certification for being pure. Authentication tests at UC Davis in 2011 uncovered similar results. Read the entire article.

Quit Smoking Naturally

For the study, which was published online by University of Buffalo public health researchers, authors from UB’s School of Public Health and Health professions surveyed 1,000 smokers aged 25 and older from across the nation.

Fourteen months after the survey, the authors followed up with the respondents to see if they stayed tobacco-free during the previous month.

What they found was that those who consumed the most fruit and vegetables were 3 times more likely to abstain from tobacco for at least 30 days than those consuming small amounts of fruit and vegetables.

In addition, those consuming more fruit and vegetables smoked less often per day, waited longer before having their first daily cigarette, and scored better on a nicotine-dependent test. Read the entire article.

Natural Food Brands - Disappointing Info

In recent weeks, several public interest groups, including the Organic Consumers Association, Cornucopia Institute, Mercola.com, and Natural News, have pointed out the gross hypocrisy and greed of large food and beverage corporations which profit from the sale of billions of dollars of their proprietary organic and "natural" food brands while at the same time funneling large sums of money to the Monsanto-led campaign to defeat the November 6th GMO labeling ballot initiative (Proposition 37) in California.

These organic and "natural" traitor companies and brands include: Kellogg's (Kashi, Bear Naked, Morningstar Farms); General Mills (Muir Glen, Cascadian Farm, Larabar); Dean Foods (Horizon, Silk, White Wave); Smucker's (R.W. Knudsen, Santa Cruz Organic); Coca-Cola (Honest Tea, Odwalla); Safeway ("O" Organics); Kraft (Boca Burgers and Back to Nature); Con-Agra (Orville Redenbacher's Organic, Hunt's Organic, Lightlife); and PepsiCo (Naked Juice, Tostito's Organic, Tropicana Organic).

Big Biotech and Big Food corporations already have dumped $25 million dollars into defeating Prop 37. The "Yes on 37" campaign has raised only $3 million so far, in part because most of the wealthy organic elite (Whole Foods Market, Trader Joe's, Stonyfield, etc.) are still sitting on the sidelines.

If the Nov. 6th GMO right-to-know ballot initiative (Prop 37), currently supported by the overwhelming majority of voters, passes in California - the eighth largest economy in the world - it will have the same impact across the United States as a national law. For a more complete list of organic and natural food "traitor" or "collaborator" brands that are subsidiaries of Big Ag companies opposing Prop 37 .... Read the entire article.
