ACAM FEATURED WRITERS AND ARTICLES

Intravenous vitamin C validated by new studies
By Dr. Ron Hoffman
Many of the therapies that have been used at the Hoffman Center over the past 30 years are controversial, to say the least. What's gratifying is that, like natural thyroid for hyperthyroidism, vitamin D for autoimmune diseases and Ubiquinol for heart problems as well as innumerable other examples they've stood the test of time, and have only become more popular and well accepted over the decades.

AUTISM


Autism potentially linked to common labor drug
The Stir
There seems to be a lot more to the choice on whether to have an epidural or not. When an epidural is administered, there is an oxytocin deficiency. That feel good hormone that is essentially a natural pain reliever isn't released as it would be if an epidural wasn't given. It makes sense since the epidural is a block. But some new science is suggesting that the block of oxytocin could affect the brains of newborns — and could be a contributing factor to autism.

Fish Oil


Fish oil dramatically improves brain health
Natural News
Researchers have known for quite some time that fish oil is highly beneficial to optimal human health. These benefits include better brain health, which is why so many manufacturers of infant milk substitutes rushed to add both DHA and omega-3 fatty acids, amino acids found in high quantities in fish, to their products. Some recent research has shown that these benefits go beyond the developing brains of the smallest people and can help people of all ages enjoy a dramatic increase in the health of their brains.

A recently developed hemp plant may prove to provide the ideal cooking oil; watch out, olive oil. The University of York reported that they have developed a hemp plant that contains a significantly higher quantity of oleic acid. The new hemp oil not only offers a longer shelf life and a higher heat tolerance but also has a very similar fatty acid makeup to olive oil.

For the first time, scientists have created human lungs in a lab — an exciting step forward in regenerative medicine, but an advance that likely won't help patients for many years. "It's so darn cool," said Joan Nichols, a researcher at the University of Texas Medical Branch. "It's been science fiction and we're moving into science fact."

Europe embraces healthy raw dairy by unveiling fresh milk vending machines
Natural News
As the U.S. government continues to wage war on raw dairy products, several European countries have done just the opposite by expanding access to the food through unpasteurized milk vending machines. Taking to heart findings from current research, Europe has recognized the exceptional health benefits of raw dairy and subsequently promoted it. Compared with pasteurized and homogenized dairy, raw milk offers a wealth of nutrition — all without the drawbacks of oxidized fats, denatured proteins, antibiotics or growth hormones.

Stem cell research to help Europe's growing population of diabetics
Cordis via Eurasia Review
More than 55 million people in Europe currently suffer from diabetes, and by 2030, this figure is expected to rise to 64 million. Although there is currently no cure, Type 1 diabetes can be treated by transplanting islet cells or even a whole pancreas into a patient from a donor. Unfortunately, the number of diabetes patients far outweighs the number of donors. Stem cells could play a vital role in addressing this gap.

Ghana's GMO debates: Beyond the sticking points
GhanaWeb
As you may have noticed from the discussions in the first part of this article, one of the issues central to the GMO debates is biosafety. How do we ensure that when plant genetic engineers develop GM crops in order to confer on them "desired traits," these crops deliver the exact results the scientists intended them to? How do we ensure that the genes that have been introduced into these plants in order to modify their genome do not end up producing proteins that are toxic to humans and animals who may consume them?
