Nicholas Gonzalez, MD, and the Trophoblastic Theory of Cancer

trophoCancer treatment with chemotherapy yields disappointing results for most cancer cell types.  Perhaps we should be exploring alternative cancer treatments, such as one proposed by Nicholas Gonzalez, MD, a keynote speaker at a medical conference I attended five years ago in Denver Colorado (Boulderfest conference July 17-20 2008.)

Folate and Vitamin B12 Treat Schizophrenia Symptoms

Schizophrenia is a disabling brain disorder characterized by the inability to tell reality from imagination, according to the National Institutes of Health (NIH). Symptoms are broken down into two types called “positive symptoms,” which include hallucinations and delusions, and “negative symptoms” which include social withdrawal, apathy, and a lack of emotional expressiveness. While drugs have been found Continue reading

Why the Medical Establishment Will Never Find a Cause or Cure for Autism

No matter how you look at it, autism research is big business. Just like the Susan G. Komen Foundation’s “Race for the Cure” for breast cancer, the autism industry pretends to be looking for the causes of autism and how to cure it, when in reality it is on a never-ending hunt for money to fund so-called research into the bodily changes associated with autism in order to push more profit-generating screenings and drug therapies on the public.

The worldwide propaganda campaign that continues to repeat the lie that vaccines are in no way related to autism is one great example of the medical establishment covering up one of the most obvious causes of autism. Rather than actually investigate how the body responds to vaccines, and how these responses are clearly associated with the neurological damage that is part and parcel of autism symptoms, researchers continue to churn out studies that completely avoid any investigation of this or any other likely cause of autism.

Instead, the vast majority of autism studies, Continue reading

NIH Study Links High Levels of Cadmium, Lead in Blood to Pregnancy Delay

Higher blood levels of cadmium in females, and higher blood levels of lead in males, delayed pregnancy in couples trying to become pregnant, according to a study by researchers at the National Institutes of Health and other academic research institutions.

Cigarette smoke is the most common source of exposure to cadmium,, a toxic metal found in the earth’s crust, which is used in batteries, pigments, metal coatings and plastics. Smokers are estimated to have twice the levels of cadmium as do non-smokers. Exposure also occurs in workplaces where cadmium-containing products are made, and from the air near industrial facilities that emit cadmium. Airborne cadmium particles can travel long distances before settling on the ground or water. Soil levels of cadmium vary with location. Fish, plants, and animals absorb cadmium from the environment, and all foods contain at least low levels of the metal.

Lead, a toxic metal also found in the earth’s crust, is used in a variety of products, such as ceramics, pipes, and batteries. Common sources of lead exposure in the United States include lead-based paint in older homes, Continue reading

Vaginal Progesterone Reduces Preterm Birth, Neonatal Morbidity and Mortality in Women at Risk

Significant findings published in the American Journal of Obstetrics and Gynecology

Philadelphia, PA, December 14, 2011 – Women with a short cervix should be treated with vaginal progesterone to prevent preterm birth, according to a landmark study by leading obstetricians around the world. Vaginal progesterone decreased the rate of preterm birth by 42%, and significantly reduced the rate of respiratory distress syndrome and the need for mechanical ventilation, as well as a composite of several complications of premature newborns (e.g. infection, necrotizing enterocolitis, intracranial hemorrhage, etc.). An early online version of the study was published today in the American Journal of Obstetrics and Gynecology (AJOG), and is available on the AJOG website free of charge. Continue reading

Turkey Tail Mushroom Proven by NIH Study to Fight Breast Cancer

Did you know… that extracts from Turkey Tail mushrooms have been proven by an NIH study to cure cancer — especially breast cancer?

Some of the most exciting recent discoveries of Turkey Tail mushrooms’ cancer-fighting power are connected to world-renowned mycologist Paul Stamets. Mycologists are scientists who specialize in the branch of biology dedicated to the study of fungi.

Mycology includes studying fungi for genetic and biochemical properties and potential usefulness to humans, including medicinal applications.

Undoubtedly the most well-known and highly valued fungi-derived medicine is the life-saving antibiotic penicillin. But other fungi are highly medicinal as well, as Paul Stamets learned firsthand. Continue reading

NIH Develops Tool to Assist In Sustainable Weight Loss

Two people following identical diet and exercise plans are likely to lose weight at different rates, despite similar habits. Researchers at the National Institutes of Health (NIH) examined the mechanisms behind these differences, and developed a tool that may provide individuals with tailored weight-loss plans.

While the computer-simulated metabolic model is still a prototype meant for research, the scientists are working to refine and simplify it for widespread use.

The NIH officials said their mathematical model will help predict changes in metabolism over time, taking into account an individual’s gender, age, height, weight, body fat and resting metabolic rate.

“It’s a good reality check for how long weight loss takes, and what changes in eating and exercise are required to achieve and maintain goal weight,” said first author Kevin Hall, Ph.D.

The researchers expect that the tool will be able to tell individuals how long it will take them to reach their goal weight when they cut out a certain amount of calories per day through dietary means and burn fat with exercise.
