Which states are the most into alternative medicine?
HealthDay News via Health.com
Folks on the West Coast are faithful followers of yoga and meditation. Midwesterners turn to chiropractors or osteopathic doctors for their aches and pains. And nearly 1 in every 5 Americans uses herbal supplements like ginseng, Echinacea, ginkgo biloba and St. John's Wort. Those are just some of the findings of a new federal government report on complementary and alternative medicine trends in the United States.

High-dose parenteral ascorbate enhanced chemosensitivity of ovarian cancer and reduced toxicity of chemotherapy
PubMed
Ascorbate was an early, unorthodox therapy for cancer, with an outstanding safety profile and anecdotal clinical benefit. Because oral ascorbate was ineffective in two cancer clinical trials, ascorbate was abandoned by conventional oncology but continued to be used in complementary and alternative medicine. Recent studies provide rationale for reexamining ascorbate treatment.

Preparation, knowledge key in fighting West Nile virus
By Katy Bynum
Several counties in North Texas — one of the hardest hit regions by West Nile virus in recent years — have announced a coordinated effort to prevent and monitor the spread of the mosquito-borne infectious disease. Texas reported 172 cases of WNV in 2013, resulting in 13 deaths, and 2,347 cases were reported nationally, with 114 deaths. WNV season officially begins in April and runs through November; however, the virus can be transmitted year-round — whenever mosquitoes are biting. Unfortunately, predicting how severe the upcoming WNV season is difficult.

Diagnosis and treatment of 'killer' headaches
By Rosemary Sparacio
Headaches are a billion-dollar industry — that is, $1 billion is spent every year on brain scans for individuals who suffer with a headache. And these brain scans are not just for those who suffer with chronic migraines, but also for those with "routine" headaches. Since about 2000, multiple sets of guidelines from neurologists and radiologists alike have been in effect recommending against MRIs and CT scans for what are benign headaches. New forms of treatment are needed for serious, severe, debilitating headaches, and two new procedures are on the horizon.

Vermont steps closer to passing GMO food-labeling law
Reuters
The Vermont Senate recently passed a bill that would make it the first U.S. state to enact mandatory labeling of foods made with genetically modified organisms. Unlike bills passed last year in Maine and Connecticut, which require other states to pass GMO labeling laws before they can be enacted, Vermont's contains no such trigger clause.
