"A press release issued by the american Society of Clinical Oncologists (including oncologists who perform transplants) said that the studies "report mixed early results." The president of the society recommended that the therapy continue to be offered. The president of the National Breast Cancer Coalition, Fran Visco, said, "How can anybody look at these data and think this is something we should continue doing or that [the results of the studies] are inconclusive?" But Dr. William H."

"Bush's comments about american health care in a speech made to the Illinois Medical Society in June 2003: "One thing is for certain about health care in our country, is that we've got the best health care system in the world and we need to keep it that way." The only thing that appears to be certain about health care in our country is that we aren't getting the health we're paying for. CHAPTER 5 A CASE IN POINT: THE SAGA OF HORMONE REPLACEMENT THERAPY Mrs. Clark had been coming to me for her nongynecological primary care for about 10 years."

"The rhetoric was toned down just a bit in an article coauthored by Wilson and his wife, Thelma, a registered nurse, published in the Journal of the american Geriatrics Society in 1972 and titled "The Basic Philosophy of Estrogen Maintenance." The article offered both carrot?Estrogen produces beauty, the allure which attracts the male. This can no more be resisted than the moth can resist the flame"—and stick: "Breasts and genital organs will not shrivel. Such women will... not become dull and unattractive."

"But lobbyists from the american Electronics Association, which opened up a lobbying arm in Beijing that year, succeeded in convincing the Chinese to switch to the less loaded EPUP. "Having the word 'safe' implies a condition that could be its opposite," an electronics industry consultant told me." In a second stage, starting in March 2008, none of those substances will be permitted in electronic information products any longer, putting the country in alignment with the European Union."

"This book is about the products taking up an increasingly huge and expensive chunk of space in that american medicine chest: prescription drugs. Unlike potions and lotions for one's skin and hair, they are not products that we "decide" we want. Prescription drugs are products that highly educated people, whom we trust with our money and our lives, tell us that we need in order to survive or to avoid undue risk to our health. Over the past decade the use of these drugs, almost all for chronic diseases, has soared. The average number of prescriptions per person, annually, in 1993 was seven."

"He sued the american Medical Association over its ban on physician advertising — something he believed deprived consumers of the ability to get the best doctor for the best price. He went after state medical societies for their bans on the advertisement of prescription drug and eyeglass prices. In fourteen months he filed thirty-four antitrust actions. "The consumer was always the bottom line for Lew," recalls Bob Lewis, who served on Engman's staff. "Ts this going to benefit the consumer?' That was always the question he asked at the end of the debate about anything."

"In the re-engineering-speak of the mid-1980s, when almost every large american company was rethinking how it did things, Steere was evangelical on the subject. "Our goal," he once explained, "was to communicate earlier on products to make sure that their development was such that when they entered the market, they'd be instant successes." Instant successes! Dr. Barry Bloom, then the head of Pfizer research, recalls the sea change in Pfizer management and scientific circles as the Steere doctrine percolated downward. "

"Unbound The Strange and Very american Liberation of Big Pharma THE MAN IN THE ARENA: WHY PHARMACEUTICAL COMPANIES BECAME SO AGGRESSIVE In the world of bureaucratic Washington, D.C., few if any possess the gravitas and smarts to get away with quoting Teddy Roosevelt. Lewis Engman, Richard Nixon's 1973 appointee as chairman of the powerful Federal Trade Commission (FTC), was one of the few. A Midwesterner with traditional Republican inclinations, Engman had "the gift," as one friend later put it — people simply wanted to be around him."

"Leaf/flower infusion: 2-4 ounces 3 times daily, though often less of the leaf tea is needed as it can be more stimulating Cautions: american elders all contain varying amounts of sambucine and cyanogenic compounds. Although individual populations can markedly differ in concentrations it is best to use flower and leaf preparations, verses the bark which tends to contain higher amounts of these compounds. Red elder berries are considered generally toxic and should be avoided."

"Dominoes used to be the favored game of the cold war, as countries tipped one way or another to the american or Soviet spheres of influence. Now, though, the domino effect is no longer an ideological contest, but is triggered by the muscle of the market. Just like Europe's RoHS directive, it did not take long for news of REACH to travel into China, where the State Environmental Protection Agency (SEPA) has been seeking new ways of controlling the dangers from hazardous chemicals. Just a decade ago, the new ideas being assessed in China were embodied in a different law."

"Just as Kirschener works with american firms on adapting to the European RoHS, he works with China-based firms in Hong Kong and Shanghai that want to retain access to the 1.3 billion strong Chinese domestic market, whose appetite for electronics is growing. For many mainstream producers —Panasonic, Sony, Apple, Dell, Hewlett Packard, and others—complying with the restrictions in China or Europe or japan (home to several of the major multinational producers) is now part of the business plan."

"An industry that american inventors played a large role in creating is discovering it must be reshaped because their foreign buyers (and in China's case, manufacturers) are asserting more sustainable and less environmentally destructive means of production. China is the world's largest manufacturer of electronics; in 2005, it sent $85 billion in electronic exports to the U.S. and $33 billion to the EU.nWhat China's markets require, its manufacturers —or, more precisely, the outsourced manufacturers for foreign companies—produce."

"Carolyn Niethammer, in her book american Indian Food and Lore has a tasty recipe for Desert rhubarb pie. The young and tender leaves can be boiled through a couple of changes of water to remove the bitterness then eaten alone or with other greens. Desert Willow Bignoniacea - Bignonia family Chilopsis linearis Mimbre, Sauce Description: Desert willow, being totally unrelated to true Willow (Salix spp.), is a small deciduous tree with linear leaves arranged alternately along its branches."
- Charles W. Kane, Herbal Medicine of the american Southwest (Get the book.)

"The fruits of Sambucus racemosa, a native Red elderberry, were rendered safer to eat by various american Indian tribes by applying heat, through boiling, steaming, or roasting. Heat has been shown to reduce cyanogenic compounds significantly. Some sensitive individuals may find the flower and especially leaf preparations mildly laxative. Like any vasodilating herb, Elder can potentially increase body temperature very briefly before promoting diaphoresis; be mindful of this when using it in higher febrile states."

"Wild Licorice Leguminosae - Pea family Glycyrrhiza lepidota american licorice Description: Wild Licorice is a colony-forming perennial bush, spreading either from underground rhizomes or through typical seed reproduction. This deciduous plant stands 1-3 feet tall and has erect stems rising from the ground. The leaves are comprised of 11-19 oblong, narrow leaflets. The arrangement is called odd-pinnate because one leaflet always terminates the group; also, the leaflets are gland dotted at maturity and are slightly sticky when rubbed."

"American Dairy Farming It would be a salutary thing to compare Swiss dairy farming and its various deficiencies with american dairy farming. The Swiss farmer, and, no doubt, those from many other countries, can learn much from the organisation, installations and hygienic conditions and rules found in the average american dairy farm. There are many american ideas that could be applied elsewhere for the benefit of producer and consumer alike. Admittedly, the american dairy farmer has larger herds and more extensive facilities, but with a little good will, some improvements could be made."

"According to a recent survey by the american Psychological Association, 80 percent of Americans believe you cannot have good physical health unless you have good mental health. They are entirely correct. Every physical illness, even those caused by injury, has a root cause in the mind. As I said earlier, every disease in the body begins with dis-ease. Therefore, if your body is ailing, you will be able to find a related ailment or distortion in your thinking (most of which goes on at the subconscious and super-conscious levels within the mind)."

"Although american society may have strayed from its early Protestant roots, many of the cultural values embedded within the Protestant work ethic are alive and kicking today. Take, for instance, our entrenched need to achieve. What else would keep Americans working more days per year than the citizens of any other nation? Or look at the common but unspoken belief that hard work pays off. If so, then those who aren't enjoying successful careers and fat brokerage accounts must be decadent, lazy, or otherwise inferior."

"A recent review conducted by the National Cancer Institute found that a staggering 87 percent of american families do not get the minimum recommended amount of fruits and vegetables (five to nine servings a day) required to maintain health.3,4 A cup of raw vegetables or fruit or half a cup of cooked vegetables constitutes one serving. This finding supports the conclusion by many experts that the current american diet has already led to increased incidents of nutrient deficiencies, obesity, and chronic diseases. Traditional vitamin supplements cannot make up for this dietary deficiency."

"Health care related to heart disease costs Americans 403 billion dollars a year with one in every three persons having some form of cardiovascular disease, according to the american Heart Association's 2006 statistics. Two-thirds of all men and women who die suddenly of a heart attack had no previous symptoms, and 65 million people have high blood pressure that is due to unknown causes in 95 percent of cases."

"Those ("Human Disease and Global Cooling," Scientific american, March 2005), most especially the Plague of Justinian. An ironist can therefore take some intellectual pleasure in the notion that the origins of twenty-first-century global warming may be traced back to the dust-veil caused global cooling of the mid-sixth. troops needed to be fed, and the grain tax imposed by the Romans in order to do so provided the impetus for a substantial grain trade that would, in the course of time, provide a dangerous lure for infectious disease."
- William Rosen, Justinian's Flea: The First Great Plague and the End of the Roman Empire (Get the book.)

"Statistics maintained by the american Association of Poison Control Centers make this point and are scary. The number of poisonings from herbs, vitamins, and other dietary supplements increased nine-fold from 1983 to 2005. Of the 125,600 incidents reported that year, 27 ended in death. Even more worrisome is an FDA consultant's estimate that for every serious adverse event that is reported, 99 other serious events are not. How can you be cautious? You can speak with your doctor. When doctors ask patients about medicines, the patient often assumes the doctor means prescription medicines."

"Flaxseed is a relatively new contender in the health arena, but it shows a lot of promise in fighting disease—including a possible role in cancer prevention," notes the american Institute for Cancer Research, which sponsored the study. "Any reduction in the rate of growth is a good indicator," Dr. Thompson says. "If flaxseed produces the same effects as anti-estrogens such as tamoxifen, it has the potential for use in both breast cancer treatment and prevention."

"The echinacea study, which was reported in a major american medical journal, the New England Journal of Medicine, was particularly thorough. People may continue buying echinacea, but, if it works, it does so because of their belief in its efficacy rather than because it has a specific antiviral effect. Nutraceuticals Echinacea is an example of a nutraceutical, a class of food-based chemicals that are thought to have an effect on health."

"Because stress is so much a part of the life of the average american, stress management has become a cottage industry in the United States. There are plenty of books, Web sites and experts to help you manage your stress load. My goal in this chapter is not to replace them. That would require an entire book (and probably a change of career for me). Instead, what I want to do is to give you an overview of the methods modern psychology has developed to help you manage stress. Exercise A major tool to use against stress is physical exercise."

"Even so, the founders of the american nation, though heirs to the Common Law, were quick to honor the document that is central to the Civil Law tradition. When a commission led by James Madison made a list of recommended acquisitions for use by the first Continental Congress, the fitst two items were Justinian's Institutes and the Corpus Iuris Civilis (Blackstone's Commentaries appeared in fifth place)."

"The only one of these drugs available on the american market is ondansetron (Zofran), which is FDA-approved to treat severe nausea and vomiting. One physician reported successfully using it to treat the horrible fatigue that can accompany hepatitis C infection. Zofran, however, is far too expensive and carries too many potentially serious side effects for its use to be considered in a larger context. A group of German psychopharmacologists have been working on another drug from this class, called tropisetron, with potentially fewer side effects."

"As I documented in Toxic Psychiatry (1991), the american Psychiatric Association made a pact with the drug companies in the early 1970s when the association was in financial crisis. Despite one ethical dissenter, the board of directors of the association voted to start taking huge amounts of money from the drug companies in order to stave off bankruptcy, in return for which the association surrendered its soul to the pharmaceutical industry."
