"In his important paper "Sick Individuals and Sick Populations," epidemiologist Geoffrey Rose notes that "a preventive measure which brings much benefit to the population offers little to each participating individual. This has been the history of public health—immunization, the wearing of seat belts, and now the attempt to change various lifestyle characteristics. Of enormous potential importance to the population as a whole, these measures offer very little—particularly in the short term—to each individual."

"Frequent consumption of milk, yogurt, cold breakfast cereals, peppers, and cruciferous vegetables and intakes of dietary folate and riboflavin but not vitamins B-12 and B-6 are inversely associated with serum total homocysteine concentrations in the US population. Am J Clin Nutr. 2004 Dec;80(6): 1500-1507. Parvez S, Malik KA, Ah Kang S, Kim HY. Probiotics and their fermented food products are beneficial for health. JAppl Microbiol. 2006 Jun;100(6):l 171-1185.

"In a follow-up study of 48 cities, half of which had a 1 per cent population which meditated, the 1 per cent cities achieved a 22 per cent decrease in crime, compared with an increase of 2 per cent in the control cities, and an 89 per cent reduction in the crime trend, compared with an increase of 53 per cent in the control cities.'? The TM organization has even studied whether group meditation could affect world peace."

"In 2004 researchers told a United Nations panel that dietary shortages of crucial vitamins and minerals like zinc and iron may be keeping as many as a third of the world's people from reaching their full potential; as many as one-fifth of the world's population lack enough zinc in their diets, putting children in particular at risk of dwarfism, diarrhea, and serious respiratory infections such as pneumonia. Symptoms of a nutritional deficiency are not necessarily obvious. Associated conditions develop slowly over time and can be very insidious and difficult to identify."

"BPA, found in everything from baby bottles and water cooler jugs to bicycle helmets, CDs, and the inside lining of tin cans, is associated with a number of health problems and diseases that are on the rise in the United States population, including breast and prostate cancers and infertility. FACT One of the main storage areas for lead is in the bones, where it is stored from early childhood during bone development. With aging and the onset of osteoporosis, blood lead levels begin increasing as it's released from thinning bones."

"The most affected part of the population is children, who represent the fastest-growing sector of people with unprecedented high rates of cancer. Every year approximately eight thousand children under age fifteen are diagnosed with a malignant disease, most frequently leukemia and brain tumors. Environmental exposure such as to ionizing radiation, hormones, and antineoplastic agents are accepted to be contributors to these diseases. At this writing it is estimated that about 1.4 million new cases of cancer will have been diagnosed in 2007."

"Here's an eye-opener: in the last twenty-five years the level of vitamin C deficiency in our population has gone from 3 to 5 percent to a confounding 20 percent—largely due to the shift from whole foods to processed foods.) Vitamin C is essential to your body's breakdown and utilization of food, and the body can neither manufacture it on its own or store it. By the same token, you don't need to have osteoporosis to have a calcium deficiency, yet millions don't get enough calcium on a daily basis as a result of diet choices."

"There, his records showed, I would find 8 people over 100 living among a population of 5,300—an astounding number of centenarians. "Good luck, Danmeister. Tell me what you find." That afternoon, Rico and I took the 30-minute ferry ride to Ie Shima and watched the tiny island, dominated by a solitary 551-foot-high volcano, come into view. Until now, we'd focused on Okinawa's emerging fame as a Blue Zone, but for many Americans, it has a darker reputation. The Battle of Okinawa was the largest amphibious assault of the World War II Pacific campaign."

"Nearly 16 percent of the nation's population was without health insurance in 2005, according to the Census Bureau, up from 14.2 percent in 2000. Many of the uninsured were from working middle-class families who earned too much to qualify for Medicaid. While studies have shown that people lucky enough to have medical coverage are being harmed by too many tests, medicines, and procedures, the uninsured can't get the care they need."

"The "quasi-extinct cohort" method was based on using the well-documented death records of Costa Rica's voting population and birth records to compute ages. (Unlike many places in Latin America, the depoliticized office of statistics and census has been free of government meddling since 1883.) Put simply, he took a sampling of births recorded between 1890 and 1900 and then found the death records. From that, he calculated the average age of death (life expectancy) and the chance of dying at any given age (mortality rate)."

"As our population ages, cognitive decline becomes an increasing concern. An estimated 24 million people worldwide currently have dementia, with 4.6 million new cases every year. By 2040, 84 million individuals are expected to have some type of age-related cognitive impairment. One of the most disturbing symptoms of aging is diminished brain function, which can cause everything from forgetfulness and loss of concentration to Alzheimer's and other serious diseases. Fortunately, modern research reveals that much can be done to keep the brain in top form."

"Though a large population study called CAROT showed that smokers who ingest beta-carotene supplements were more prone to lung cancer, a study from the National Cancer Institute found that lung cancer occurrence was higher in men whose diets did not supply a healthy intake of alpha-carotene. DIABETES: Human research suggests that eating foods rich in carotenoids, like carrots, may aid in making insulin more effective, thus improving blood-glucose control."

"In the city of Belem in Brazil, more of the fruit is drunk than milk—an estimated 200,000 liters of acai juice is consumed daily among a population of 1.3 million. Where Is Acai Grown? Acai is unique to the Amazon rainforests of Brazil and commercial production of the berry is found mainly near the city of Belem. 3 Why Should I Eat Acai? Surprisingly for a fruit, the vast majority of the calories come from fat: A four-ounce serving of pure acai contains about 100 calories and six grams of fat. However, it is rich in anti-inflammatory omega-9 fats and also contains little sugar."

"A large population study found that women who ate bananas four to six times a week reduced their risk of developing kidney cancer by fifty percent compared to women who did not eat bananas. Tips on Using Bananas SELECTION AND STORAGE: • Select full-yellow bananas if you are going to eat them within a few days. • Use fully ripe bananas, with speckles on the peel, for baking, mixing smoothies, or in recipes that specify mashed bananas. • Keep bananas on a fruit dish at room temperature."

"In fact, only about 10% of the population are "southpaws" or "lefties," as left-handed people are sometimes called. This trait is thought to be primarily genetic (inherited) or congenital (present at birth). In the latter case, it's hypothesized the left-handedness is the result of exposure to abnormally high levels of testosterone in the womb."

"That tragedy in the late 1980s showed that heavily marketed medicines could kill the equivalent of an entire city the size of Biloxi, Mississippi, with almost no public outcry if the drugs caused a type of death that was common in the population, like cardiac arrest. At the same time, the industry's method of selling blockbusters had a way of tempting executives to keep a dangerous medicine on the market long after its deadly risks had become clear."

"I don't disagree that MedWatch forms are cumbersome to review, but how we choose to portray the safety of cisapride now, especially for as delicate (and socially sensitive) a population as neonates and infants, is critical," Kurland wrote. The reports of injuries continued to worry federal regulators, who held more private meetings with Johnson 8c Johnson executives. In 2000, FDA officials decided to make their concerns public. The regulators scheduled a meeting where a panel of national experts would consider the evidence and decide whether Propulsid should continue to be sold."

"Indeed, homeopathy—with its emphasis on mild, easily self-administered, and highly portable drug therapies—was particularly well suited to the exigencies of a geographically dispersed, necessarily self-sufficient, and generally wilful population. And Jacksonian American, culturally and politically marked by a rejection of elitism and professional claims to exclusive knowledge, was already shrugging off early attempts by its nascent medical profession to regulate the practice of medicine, and make it a preserve of the 'regularly trained'."

"The way to learn longevity secrets from people like Ushi is to find a place where there are many Ushis—to find a culture, a Blue Zone, where the proportion of healthy 90 or 100-year-olds to the overall population is unusually high. Then science can kick in. Scientific studies suggest that only about 25 percent of how long we live is dictated by genes, according to famous studies of Danish twins. The other 75 percent is determined by our lifestyles and the everyday choices we make."

"For each intention experiment, a target will be selected—a specific living thing or a population where change caused by group intention can be measured. We have started with algae, the lowliest of subjects (see chapter 12), and with every experiment, we will move on to an increasingly complex living target. Our plans are ambitious: to eventually tackle a number of societal ills. One eventual human target might be patients with a wound. It is known and accepted that wounds generally heal at a particular, quantifiable rate with a precise pattern."

"Although there is no scientific documentation of what I've just said, there is a small percentage of the population who have a genetic aberration called a single nucleotide polymorphism on the NQOl gene that expresses the reductase enzyme that reduces ubiquinone to ubiquinol. If the aberration is present, the person is at a disadvantage in efficiency in making the conversion. The disadvantage may be slight or in very rare situations, total. If there is a mild reductase enzyme aberration, then taking more ubiquinone or taking it with vitamin C may compensate for the deficiency."

"Consider, for example, the vegetarian population. Like coenzyme Q10, insufficient sources of L-carnitine can lead to deficient states in people who are pure vegetarians. In my practice of cardiology, I've examined many vegetarians who had low coenzyme Qi0 levels and low carnitine levels as well. Remember, the word carnitine comes from carnis, meaning flesh or meat. The greatest quantities of L-carnitine are found in mutton from older sheep, followed by lamb, beef, other red meat, and pork. Although carnitine is found in many foods, the quantities in plants are exceedingly small (see Table 5.1"

"Compared to the general population, the epithelium in Barrett's Esophagus has a 30 to 40 fold increase in becoming cancerous. However, only around five to 10% of people with this disorder ever develop esophageal cancer. Diagnosis of Barrett's esophagus is done by doing an endoscopy and biopsy. An endoscopy is a long tube that is guided down the throat to better see the affected areas. A biopsy or tissue sample is taken to see if the cells are abnormal. This sample is sent to a lab for further investigation."

"Many people have gallstones, up to 20% of the population is thought to have them and only one to 3% of people are thought to experience symptoms. Some people have pains in their gallbladder with the absence of any stones. These people have what is called "gallbladder colic." The gallbladder can actually become infected and/or spasm if it is irritated. Usually people experience this dull or cramping pain under the right rib. Often people are left to suffer with their symptoms or have their gallbladder removed."

"Diabetics tend to suffer from gum disease more than the general population. This can be another cause of bad breath, as mentioned earlier. DIETARY MEASURES FOR HALITOSIS Dietary measures for halitosis include avoiding offending foods that typically cause bad breath. Foods that were mentioned earlier are blue cheese, curry, fish, garlic, onions and excessive protein consumption. Drink lots of water to flush the bad bacteria away from the mouth. It also helps to keep hydrated and saliva flowing. Parsley is an herb that is useful in absorbing bad odours."

"Carnitine and Kidney Disease Another special population in which carnitine depletion may occur are those undergoing renal dialysis. These individuals are also extremely vulnerable to ventricular arrhythmia. The loss of carnitine in the dialysate (dialysis solution) may result in carnitine deficiency, setting the stage for the development of cardiac arrhythmias. When patients undergo renal dialysis, the small carnitine molecule is quite readily lost or "washed out" by the dialysate."

"As medicine continues to advance in its ability to treat such conditions as cardiovascular disease, which have largely affected the elderly population, people will live longer. And as people live longer, there will be unprecedented numbers of people in the later stages of brain aging. The number of Americans to be diagnosed with Alzheimer's disease is projected to reach 14 million by 2050 at a cost of well over $300 billion a year. The organization Alzheimer's Disease International (ADI) estimates the number of people worldwide to exceed 80 million."

"If enough people were doing it, the coherence would prove infectious among the entire population. The TM organization had elected to call this 'Super Radiance' because just as superradiance in the brain or in a laser creates coherence and unity, so meditation would have the same effect on society. Special groups of yogic flyers have assembled all over the world, carrying out special 'meditation intensives' targeted at specific areas of conflict."

"Although this risk population is small, and most people suffer relatively few side effects as a result of taking the medications, the positive effects are often very subtle and barely noticeable. I have struggled over the years with prescribing pills that I worry confer relatively little benefit, come at a high cost, subject a patient to possible side effects, and for which we have insufficient data on long-term safety. Still, I believe it is important for me to give families the choice of opting for the pills."

"This would enable all of the healers to be distributed throughout the patient population, so that healing itself, not any particular variety of it, would be studied. The healers were to keep a log of their healing sessions with information about their healing methods and their impressions of their patients' health. By the end of the study, each of the treated patients would have had ten healers^ and each of the healers, five patients. Elisabeth was open-minded about it, but the conservative in her kept surfacing. Try as she might, her training and her own predilections kept surfacing."
