The Alliance for Natural Health (ANH) has been working for the last year to update their website and include ACAM's Physician+Link website search engine. The renovation is nearly complete and ACAM doctors will be able to be found by thousands of potential patients with this connection! We're looking forward to doubling, possibly tripling, our referrals once the ANH site is live! ACAM welcomes Executive Director, Gretchen DeBeau, to this year's meeting. Stop by to say "Hello!" and get important legislative updates!

HEAVY METALS, CARDIOVASCULAR DISEASE, AND THE UNEXPECTED BENEFITS OF CHELATION THERAPY - Journal of the American College of Cardiology, May 2016
This review summarizes evidence from 2 lines of research previously thought to be unrelated: the unexpectedly positive results of TACT (Trial to Assess Chelation Therapy), and a body of epidemiological data showing that accumulation of biologically active metals, such as lead and cadmium, is an important risk factor for cardiovascular disease. Considering these 2 areas of work together may lead to the identification of new, modifiable risk factors for atherosclerotic cardio-vascular disease. We examine the history of chelation up through the report of TACT. We then describe work connecting higher metal levels in the body with the future risk of cardiovascular disease. We conclude by presenting a brief overview of a newly planned National Institutes of Health trial, TACT2, in which we will attempt to replicate the
findings of TACT and to establish that removal of toxic metal stores from the body is a plausible mechanistic explanation for the benefits of edetate disodium treatment. READ COMPLETE ARTICLE

Recently, a team of scientists examined the whole-joint gene expression by RNA sequencing at one day, one, six and 12 weeks after injury. The team used a new, non-invasive tibial compression mouse model of PTOA, that mimics ACL rupture in humans from a single high-impact injury. SCIENCE DAILY
Antibiotics strong enough to kill off gut bacteria can also stop the growth of new brain cells in the hippocampus, a section of the brain associated with memory, reports a new study in mice. Researchers also uncovered a clue to why -- a type of white blood cell seems to act as a communicator between the brain, the immune system, and the gut.
