ACAM FEATURED WRITERS AND ARTICLES


Secondary cancer prevention: The role of the integrative clinic – part 2
By Rebecca Stealey
Secondary prevention of cancer involves interventions aimed at early detection and early management of the disease to limit spread and reduce mortality. Screening and early detection for some cancers, such as colon cancer (the third most common cause of cancer related death) are relatively straightforward and the risks of adverse outcomes are relatively low. Screening methods for breast and prostate cancers, however, are more complex and controversial. This article looks at available research.

Cytokine storm - A possible sequel to influenza
By Dan Carter, ND
A competent immune system is usually associated with good health, but some conditions can turn the immune system component of cytokines against us. For example, the 1918-19 Spanish flu epidemic [Type A, subtype (H1N1)] caused a high number of influenza deaths. More than one-half million people died in the United States, and nearly half of the deaths were young healthy adults aged 20-40. Both the swine flu (H1N1) and bird flu (H5N1) have resulted in what has been defined as a “cytokine storm.”

The findings could lead to a therapy akin to the use of insulin by diabetics. The study was conducted by Dr. Julia von Maltzahn and Dr. Michael Rudnicki, the Ottawa scientist who discovered muscle stem cells in adults.

    SPINAL CORD INJURIES


    New therapies for spinal cord injuries
    Cottage Country Now
    Your brain and spinal cord are like the electrical wiring in your house. The "wires" are the nerves, and the "insulation" is this fatty stuff called myelin. Myelin is made by oligodendrocytes. Contrary to popular belief, most human spinal cord injuries are not really transection injuries. That is, the spinal cord is not severed, and retains some nerves that cross the site of injury, but in many cases they do not work.
