Omega-3 oil and prostate cancer: What a recent study reveals about our current medical system
Steven Hall, MD
You have by now no doubt heard about the new study linking higher blood levels of omega-3 oils to higher risk of prostate cancer. Several physicians, including Mark Hyman, MD, Joel Fuhrman, MD, Gerald Chodak, MD and Joe Mercola among others have reviewed this “study” and explained in detail why the study design and the kind of data collected make it impossible to draw any meaningful conclusions from the statistical analysis that the authors did. Yet the “study” got published in a peer-reviewed journal and picked up, misinterpreted and spread all over the lay press.

  Increase accuracy, add iSpot Lyme

Lyme disease is difficult to diagnose. 50-70% of patients go undiagnosed or misdiagnosed due to low sensitivity of traditional antibody-based testing. iSpot Lyme™ is a new breakthrough cellular immune diagnostic tool that can detect the bacterial infection of Lyme disease with 84% sensitivity and 94% specificity.

    Stem cell from umbilical cord blood to treat autism?
    Las Vegas Guardian Express
    FDA recently approved a trial to enable researchers to determine whether stem cells obtained from umbilical cord blood at birth can cure autism. The trial’s goal is to evaluate whether stem cell’s therapy has any effect on language and behavioral difficulties experienced by autistic children. The rationale to pursue this trial was linked to the encouraging results of unpublished data examining the potential of stem cell therapy in children with cerebral palsy.

    LSU coach Les Miles endorses use of hyperbaric oxygen treatment
    The Advocate
    When Les Miles took his turn at the podium in July during Southeastern Conference Football Media Days, many of the reporters assembled there assumed the LSU coach would have something juicy or off the wall to say. After all, Miles was the guy who went off the wall, literally, in late May, climbing down the outside of a Baton Rouge skyscraper for charity.

    Lyme disease figures soar, mostly in Northeast
    The Boston Globe
    New estimates indicate that Lyme disease is 10 times more common than previous national counts showed, the federal government announced Monday, with about 300,000 people getting the disease each year — most in the Northeast. The updated total, compiled by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, is based on data from health insurance claims, laboratories, and public surveys. Past estimates of 30,000 cases a year relied on physicians’ reports to states, and the illnesses were widely considered underreported.

    Therapy Cells, Inc. receives patent granted for revolutionary cell therapy
    Therapy Cells Inc. announced that on Feb. 13, US patent US 11/702,895 was awarded to renowned scientist Dr. Patrick Casey and Transplantation Ltd, for his transformational cell therapy, exclusively licensed to Therapy Cells Inc for use in human applications. This revolutionary science dispenses with the traditional notion that cells cannot divide once they are fully mature. Dr Casey has shown that adult cells, given the right environment, can in fact divide and be grown in the laboratory. These new cells can then be used for transportation back to damaged tissue in the body, to enact tissue and organ healing.

    California: Bill to allow women to sell eggs for research is vetoed
    The Governor of California, Jerry Brown, has vetoed a bill that would have allowed women to sell their eggs for medical research. The bill's author, Susan Bonilla, said a lack of research into fertility was affecting thousands of women in California who face the decision of having to store their eggs for fertility reasons. 'Women should be very troubled that Governor Brown doesn't think they should be able to have a choice when it comes to their own eggs', she said.
