ASSISTANCE NEEDED - Evaluating the Fall 2013 Conference

Dear ACAM Supporters and Followers,

We have recently completed our Fall 2013 Conference and are fast underway to make plans for future conferences. We know that we need to build our membership base and find ways to entice more people to come to our conferences. As such, we are seeking YOUR input.

We have created two free on-line surveys through a program we have used in the past called SurveyMonkey. We are asking ALL who receive this e-mail to go on-line and select one of the two surveys based on whether you DID attend the Fall 2013 Conference in Palm Springs/Rancho Mirage or if you DID NOT attend the conference.

Click HERE if you DID attend the ACAM Fall 2013 Conference in Palm Springs.

Click HERE if you DID NOT attend the ACAM Fall Conference in Palm Springs.

The survey will remain open until January 11, 2014. It will only take 5 to 10 minutes to complete this important survey.

Thank you for assisting us in gathering this data. Results will be communicated after the first of the year.

The new intelligent medicine communications revolution
By Dr. Ron Hoffman
In case you haven't noticed, radio is changing. Listeners to Health Talk, the longest-running physician-hosted health show on radio at 25 years, were dismayed when we went on hiatus at the end of 2013. A lot of familiar programs have been cut.

When you turn your radios on in 2014, a whole lot will have changed in Talk Radio, but one constant will remain--we'll be back Saturdays on WOR from1-2 PM. Rechristened "Intelligent Medicine", we'll offer listeners not just one but the regular TWO hours of live weekend programming--the trick is you can listen live to hour one from noon to 1 PM ET via your computer or mobile device on this streaming link: Of course, we'll be there to field your health questions live, on the air, via our new call-in number 888-302-3684.

The 7 traits of cancer: Waking up to the growing link between breakthrough science and alternative medicine
Dr. Antonio Jimenez, M.D.
Hope4Cancer Institute

As investigations into the nature and evolution of cancer in the human body continue, scientific study continues to show that treating cancer with uni-dimensional conventional approaches must be rethought in order to combat the highly adaptive enemy within. In a seminal paper published in the year 2000, Hanahan and Weinberg developed an organizing framework to explain the complex nature of neoplastic disease (cancer). They called this descriptive framework "The Six Hallmarks of Cancer." Eleven years later, they expanded on their original thesis in an updated review paper by incorporating lessons learned from the recent research studies.
