"Misbin wrote an email to his FDA superiors on January 24, 2000, stating "I see no reason why any well-informed physician would continue to prescribe [Rezulin]. Neither do I see any reason why FDA should delay in taking steps to remove [Rezulin] from the market."90 If FDA did not remove the drug from the market, Misbin predicted "additional cases of preventable liver failure."

"A person may complain of pain that has no apparent reason for being there or, if the sharp object has been there for a long time, there may be chronic pain that never goes away, no matter what the person does. Cliches may make you roll your eyes but there is a reason they have become commonplace in our language. Have you ever felt like you were "stabbed in the back" by a close friend? The saying originates from the fact that a dagger of sorts has been directed with negative intent."

"However, a steady retinal defocus (hyperopic: focus behind the retina) seems to be a precursor for the globe axis's lengthening and therefore is the main reason myopia develops. Many authors, such as Suchoff and Petito (1986) and Curtin (1985), back up this theory that assumes that retinal defocus is the main stimulus for axial lengthening—and therefore for developing myopia. This theory is based on the assumption that the retina varies its position so as to optimize focusing. This means that the shape of the ocular globe must change over time."

"A further reason was that working and studying at near distances necessarily produced overaccommodative stress. We should be aware of the importance and prevalence of environmental factors for developing nearsightedness. Let us learn to trust more in the process of natural healing through "ending" the near environment with a plus lens. Enhancing this understanding will allow us to free ourselves from misconceptions that are so rampant about the behavior of the natural eye. We should terminate the idea that nothing can be done to prevent and reverse nearsightedness."

"The "specificity" of the visual range where the stretching is applied in this exercise is the reason for its efficacy. The first phase of implementing functional rehabilitation will produce a gradual improvement in your focusing capacity. It includes muscular training, which occurs because the agonist and antagonistic muscles are strengthened. This phase acts on their properties (strength, flexibility, and coordination) gradually. Working with this muscular group of the six extrinsic eye muscles restores their coordination."

"Coenzyme Qi0 depletion may be the reason why some patients with congestive heart failure worsen when they take beta blockers. Although we regularly recommend beta blockers for our patients, we are mindful about the depleting effects these drugs have on coenzyme Q10. Coenzyme Qio has also been known to reduce the drug-induced fatigue frequently experienced by patients taking beta blockers. Over the years, we have used coenzyme Qiq in conjunction with beta blockers with great success, especially for the treatment of high blood pressure, arrhythmia and angina."

"The only reason that I didn't add this preserver of mitochondrial function to my "awesome threesome" (making it an awesome foursome) is because it's not new. We've been using magnesium for conditions like preeclampsia since about 1906, according to my research. And believe it or not, this simple but essential element may be a "longevity" mineral because of its impact on cellular energy metabolism. Hard water is defined as water with high levels of minerals."

"In fact, L-carnitine is the only carrier that can do this and, for this reason, its abundant presence in the cell is an absolute requirement for life. The inner mitochondrial membrane is normally CH3 I OOCCH2CHCH2+ N - CH3 I I OH CH3 Inner Membrane Outer Membrane impermeable to activated coenzyme A (CoA) esters. Coenzyme A is a very important molecule that binds to many other molecules to make them more reactive and to help transport them across lipid membranes, like that of the mitochondria."

"In addition to addressing certain investigative concerns, this brief communication quickly summarizes the reason why coenzyme Qi0 will someday become a major force in cardiovascular care. Here is what I said: In the May 2004 article by Marcus Berman et al., researchers discussed the appropriateness of oral coenzyme Qi0 administration for those awaiting heart transplantation."

"It's often said that what we hold to be true of our world may be more important than what really exists. The reason? If we believe something clearly enough, our subconscious will transform our belief into the reality that we believed to begin with! In other words, it appears that the adage is true: "We'll see it when we believe it." As the popular motivational speaker Robert Collier recognized more than a century ago, "Our subconscious mind cannot tell the difference between reality and an imagined thought or image."
- Gregg Braden, The Spontaneous Healing of Belief: Shattering the Paradigm of False Limits (Get the book.)

"It's almost as if the conditions of our world are pushing us into the new frontier of consciousness itself, forcing us to rediscover who we are in order to survive what we've created. The reason why you are a powerful key in this revolution is that it's based entirely on something that you and I are doing right now, in this very moment. Alone and together, individually and collectively, consciously and unconsciously, we are all choosing the way we think of ourselves and what we believe to be true of our world. The results of our beliefs surround us as our everyday experience."

"While Statements 1-3 are interesting and may shed some light on patterns in your life, Statement 4 is the main reason for doing this exercise. It suggests that subconsciously you actually may be short-circuiting the great joy and accomplishments that are possible in your life by trying to get your needs met using updated versions of the techniques that you learned as a child. We're creatures of habit. Once we find something that works, we tend to stick with it. This can be healthy if that "something" is an honoring and life-affirming process."

"If you have a parathyroid tumor, you probably will be referred to a head and neck surgeon, who can remove this tumor. One reason why it's important to identify other causes of high blood calcium levels is that sometimes bone pain related to cancer is accompanied by high calcium levels. Lung cancer, prostate cancer, breast cancer, and multiple myeloma all can cause bone pain and elevated calcium levels. Sarcoidosis—an immune-mediated disease?can cause elevated calcium levels, too."

"That's one reason why strengthening your hip flexors will do wonders for your lower-back pain. The sit-up is for your back; abdominal muscles aren't going to make your back feel better. The key to doing sit-ups is to use your hip flexors more than your stomach muscles. As you pull yourself to a seated position, think about pulling your knees to your chest using your hip muscles. This is actually easier to do than using your stomach muscles. People who can't get up and down from the floor easily can strengthen their hip flexors while standing up."

"At that time, investors believed that if inflation broke out, the stock market would go up, rather than down, as is now commonly thought, and that therefore the prospect of inflation was a reason to own stocks. There was concern in the early 1960s that, even though there was virtually no inflation, the Kennedy-Johnson economic programs could become inflationary. A possibly significant factor behind the 1960s market peak was the Dow's approach to 1,000."

"This difference is a major reason for African Americans' higher incidence of obesity, high blood pressure, diabetes, gout, heart disease, systemic lupus, and cancer. You may be thinking, I just need to take this book to my doctor and ask for a prescription to move to Florida or Southern California so I can get enough sunshine. That's not the solution, and here's why: you have to live a lifestyle that lets you get outside to soak up sunlight. If your lifestyle doesn't allow that, you could live in Hawaii and be D-deficient."

"S Language is the mediating factor that constitutes our self, and we have an instinctive desire to organize our experiences into narrative form. One reason I find Alzheimer's disease so disturbing is because its description comprises a powerful story that generates tremendous fear, angst, and social stigmatization for the millions diagnosed with AD and for millions more of us who are aging."

"For this reason, it is good to check the water purity regularly. Newer and stronger membranes are now available on the market, but we are still in the habit of checking the water purity every four months and/or whenever there is a change in the taste. While RO units are similar in appearance and claimed performance, there are many complex, interdependent choices regarding pre-treatment, membrane selection, and post-treatment."

"For this reason, they are best for city water systems but not for well water systems, which have a potential to be polluted with high amounts of nitrates from agricultural wastes. A concern regarding granular charcoal filters is their tendency to be a gathering ground for bacteria, yeasts, and molds, and their inability to remove pollutants found in some drinking water. Some of the more sophisticated charcoal filters do have a reverse wash system in an attempt to compensate for this."

"The key to understanding this is that there are more than 100 antigens found in milk. The reason for the increase in juvenile diabetes is that the children have much higher formation of antibodies to the cow's milk antigens. According to a 1999 study reported in the journal Diabetes by Outi Vaarala, researchers found up to eight times the number of antibodies against milk protein in dairy-product-consuming children who also developed juvenile diabetes.23 Finland, which has the world's highest milk consumption, also has the world's highest per capita rate of insulin-dependent diabetes."

"Recent scientific research strongly supports the health benefits of ingesting relatively high levels of CoQlO, and for this reason, supplementation is recommended. CoQlO exists in two chemically different forms, ubiquinol and ubiquinone. The vast majority of CoQlO supplements available today contain the ubiquinone form. However, ubiquinol has the ability to scavenge free radicals in sites where inflammation and oxidation caused by glycation can inflict significant damage."

"I hadn't been to see my doctor in several years because I didn't have a reason to go, so I didn't think anything was wrong." But the 165/95 mm Hg reading Ellie got at the health fair came as an unwelcome and unexpected surprise and was incentive enough for her to heed the advice of the nurse who took her pressure to make an appointment with a doctor. An estimated one-quarter of American adults have high blood pressure (hypertension), which is defined as 140/90 mm Hg or higher in nondiabetics. Blood pressure that remains between 120-139/80?"

"He also found that he was thirsty much of the time for no apparent reason, that his vision was frequently blurry, and that his fingers would often become numb. The combination of symptoms concerned him, so he made an appointment with his family doctor. His physical examination and blood profile showed a clear picture of diabetes: ?Fasting glucose, 185 mg/dL ?Blood pressure, 150/80 mm Hg ?Hemoglobin A , 13.2 percent ?Total cholesterol, 220 mg/dL ?HDL, 25 mg/dL ?Triglycerides, 390 mg/dL Frank was also overweight, carrying 250 pounds on his 5-foot, 10-inch frame."

"Full-fat dairy, such as cheese and butter, are the foods with the highest saturated fat content, so choose mostly from fat-free dairy products, and for the same reason, try to choose white meat fowl, fish and eggs. Avoid processed meats, barbecued meats, luncheon meats, bacon, hot dogs, and any pickled, darkened, blackened, barbecued or overcooked animal products. They contain high levels of cancer-promoting substances called carcinogens. Eating in Restaurants Dining out can be challenging when transitioning to a healthy diet."

"Asthma, which is linked to exposure to toxins in the environment, is the number-one reason for school absenteeism and the number-one chronic childhood illness. • Conventional cleaning chemicals can contain neurotoxins, highly toxic materials that affect the nerve cells and may impair a child's developmental and learning abilities. • A study published in the October 2003 edition of Environmental Health Perspectives found that teens showed a fourfold increased risk of illness from exposure to disinfectants than adults."

"The problem is fairly simple: Our kids don't know how to eat right. The reason they don't know how to eat right is also simple: Because we've never taught them. Often, we don't know how to eat right ourselves, but it's long past time that we learned. Changing our kids' diets isn't very difficult—that's not the problem here. After all, kids eat what their parents give them to eat. Their tastes develop according to the foods we give them, and their eating habits tend to carry over into adulthood."

"If for some reason you don't already own a microwave, resolve never to buy one. Once you have a microwave, you'll find it very difficult not to use it constantly. If after reading this you want to dispose of your microwave, do so responsibly. Microwaves are filled with PVCs and heavy metals and shouldn't just be tossed into the nearest landfill. Instead, take your microwave to the waste transfer station nearest your home. The EPA provides complete listings of regional waste transfer stations on its Web site (www.epa.gov/epaoswer)."

"The Mothers and Newborns Study primarily focuses on prenatal development, for one simple reason. "Because it is growing so quickly, the fetus has tremendous potential for damage," Perera said. "Damage to the fetus is ten times higher than that to the mother at the exact same unit of exposure or dose. Mercury and lead, for example, have much greater effect at this stage than later on. The fetus lacks the systems to detoxify and repair DNA. By being more vigilant during this prenatal stage, we've had a greater effect."

"This is part of the reason why so many kids with ADHD grow up to become adults who overindulge in alcohol, drugs, food, and other avenues of immediate gratification. Conventional wisdom says that these people are just masking their emotional pain with indulgences, but it's more complicated than that. They are also often simply incapable of knowing when to say when, because their frontal lobes don't get much of an opportunity to vote in the decision. With the advent of modern brain imaging, we are now able to actually see physical signs of poor frontal lobe function."

"That's also the reason that aerobic exercise raises vitamin D levels. When you burn fat, you liberate vitamin D from that fat and garner it for use elsewhere. It's safe to attribute at least part of the health benefits of exercise to these higher vitamin D levels. How much exercise does it take to burn fat? About 35 to 50 percent of your maximum oxygen-burning capacity (V02 max), which correlates with 50 to 65 percent of your maximum heart rate (MHR), is how hard you have to work to burn fat (see page 108). Much more or much less and your fat-burning drops off."
