The findings published in Pediatrics, the journal of the American Academy of Pediatrics, suggest the use of supplements for the first five years of a child's life may prevent the development of such life-threatening conditions.

Vitamin C 'boosts tumour death in cancer patients'
Researchers claim to have found evidence that vitamin C can boost tumour death in brain cancer patients, a finding which could pave the way for an effective treatment for the disease. An international team, led by University of Otago, says its research has revealed that high doses of vitamin C makes it easier for radiation therapy to kill brain tumour cells in cancer patients.

Comment: The publication of this study is yet another sign that the 'cancer industry' realizes the replacement of chemotherapy and radiation by natural health approaches is now inevitable. For the meantime, however, it is still trying to control the field of cancer treatment by marrying' an old profitable approach (radiation) with a new approach (vitamin C). This 'delaying tactic' is being employed for one reason only: To protect the Pharma Cartel's near-trillion dollar a year income by diverting people's attention away from Dr. Rath's discoveries and the research conducted at the Dr. Rath Research Institute, which, without using either chemotherapy or radiotherapy, have already been shown to block all key mechanisms that make cancer a deadly disease.

Vitamin D, Calcium and the Vitamin D Receptor in Colon Cancer Prevention
In recent years, nutritional research of vitamin D has reached beyond bone health to include potential benefits to the treatment of diabetes, cancer, heart and brain disease. The receptor to vitamin D has been identified within the cells of at least 37 different tissues of the body. Adequate levels of vitamin D and calcium may confer protection against many diseases including the risk of colon cancer and colorectal adenoma, as evidenced by an accumulating number of studies.

'Grief is not a mental illness that should be treated with pills': Doctors hit back at creeping medicalisation of life events
Backlash follows the American Psychiatric Association's reclassification of grief as a mental illness
Grief is not a mental illness that should be treated with anti-depressants, experts say. In an unsigned editorial in the influential medical journal The Lancet, experts argue that grief does not require psychiatrists and that 'legitimising' the treatment of grief with antidepressants 'is not only dangerously simplistic, but also flawed.'

Canadian farmer warns of GM dangers
Financial ruin and loss of organic agriculture will be part of the future Australia if genetically modified crop trials continue, according to Canadian farmer Peter Eggers. Mr Eggers is facing similar consequences on his Alberta property after first trialling GM canola in the 1990s. Aside from providing no financial gain, he said the initial trial had left him unable to produce the crop organically.

Food safety decided by industry-linked experts?
As the European Food Safety Authority celebrates its 10th anniversary, a new report from Corporate Europe Observatory (CEO) and Earth Open Source questions the independence of its advice. Conflicts on the menu: a decade of industry influence at the European Food Safety Authority highlights the agency's reliance on industry data and industry-linked experts and calls for a complete overhaul of EFSA's operations.
Read article on the Corporate Europe Observatory website
Comment: Rather than improving food safety and protecting consumers, as it claims to be doing, EFSA is engaged in an ongoing and systematic effort to eliminate non-patentable natural health therapies, and information about them, across the entire European continent. Behind the scenes, EFSA's scientific panels play key roles in these efforts. Rather than being composed of independent experts, EFSA knowingly permits the members of its scientific committees to have links to pharmaceutical, chemical, biotech and agribusiness companies. Moreover, in a blatant attempt to protect these corporate interests, EFSA even claims on its website that "having an interest does not necessarily mean having a conflict of interest."
