"One strand of Wyeth's general damage limitation strategy was to muddy the water and to suggest that everyone was confused by the study results. In reality, of course, the study results of both the big US and UK studies could have been grasped by a five-year-old. This was shown to be the case when an FDA spokesperson, echoing study results, commented, 'Prempro does significantly more harm than good when taken for long periods.'56 The 'confusion' strategy was a good one. Like dripping water it would, if repeated enough, wear away the immutable quality of the research results."

"Your CPK levels can increase when you exercise vigorously, because vigorous exercise produces some muscle damage, and this damage releases CPK. This mild muscle damage explains why your muscles ache after the first day of skiing, for example. CPK levels can also increase when your muscles are injured by an autoimmune disease called myositis, which can produce muscle achiness, weakness, and fatigue. I'm looking for myositis when I order this test."

"From the beginning, however, there were behind-the-scenes moves to damage both Maggie and the MHL. In the beginning, Maggie applied to make the MHL a charity. In May 1996, the Charity Commissioners wrote to Maggie via a legal services group, which had made inquiries about the registration of MHL. The Charity Commission, which spends limitless energy in supporting charities that act as front organisations for drug companies, had, they told Maggie, received letters expressing objections to the registration of the organisation."

"And the lack of linkage between personal damage and corporate responsibility is nowhere more evident than in medicine. Iatrogenic illness goes to the very heart of the social contract between the State and the people. Its levels are also indicative of general levels of democracy in society. It sits awkwardly at the nexus between the public, its governance and private corporations. The State provides, regulates and is supposed to monitor the effects of pharmaceutical pro- 5 (conf.) were denied legal aid to pursue claims."

"While 'X women in every thousand' might sound like acceptable collateral damage, a percentage increase risk figure sometimes sounded like a holocaust. The drug companies had learnt to deal with damaging statistics by 1997. That year, a paper published in The Lancet once again showed a high percentage increase in cases of breast cancer among women on HRT, and the pharmas made sure that, in their own propaganda at least, the percentage was converted to real numbers."

"It is very well known from biological laboratory experiments that if you can blast a cell with UV light so that 99 per cent of the cell, including its DNA, is destroyed, you can almost entirely repair the damage in a single day just by illuminating the cell with the same wavelength of a very weak intensity. To this day, conventional scientists don't understand this phenomenon, but nobody has disputed it. Popp also knew that patients with a skin condition called xeroderma pigmentosum eventually die of skin cancer because their photo-repair system doesn't work and so doesn't repair solar damage."

"Could I damage my ocular muscles by forcing them too much? If you carry out the exercises correctly, with proper understanding of the principle of gradual, symmetric loading and at maximum range, you don't run any risk. It would be as if we could damage any bodily muscle by training it correctly. Not only the body but also the mind responds to the change. Fears and doubts have a negative aim. By training ocular muscles, you can improve local blood circulation, which will bring about remarkable functional advantages. 9."

"It could be called a principle that ionising radiation damages the DNA of a cell, and cell death will usually follow if the damage is not repaired. Radiate a cancer cell and it may die. But how far does such principle get you? It has to be put to work in the complexity of a human being, where "we know so little about how the body works." In this respect, it is like our earlier alleged "proofs." John Diamond was told that A burst of radiation will damage both [cancerous and healthy] cells but the healthy cells will recover. Was it true?"

"The chief danger comes from the damage they can do when they react with important cellular components, such as DNA or the cell membrane. Cells may function poorly or die if this occurs. To prevent free radical damage, the body has a defense system of substances known as antioxidants. Antioxidants are molecules that can safely interact with free radicals and terminate the chain reaction before vital molecules are damaged."

"Compared to the control group, the elderberry-fed group had a fifty percent reduction in damage to the colon. Tips on Using Elderberry SELECTION AND STORAGE: • Avoid picking berries that have become overripe. Wash well and strip from the stalks using a dining fork. • Elderberries can be stored in the refrigerator for up to one week. PREPARATION AND SERVING SUGGESTIONS: • They can be frozen, canned, and made into pie filling. • Elderberries can be added to apple pie or blackberry jam."

"The faster these toxins are removed, the quicker the body can fight disease and repair the damage done by these "treatments." Why Use Flor-Essence Preventively? Taking steps to prevent cancer may be the best medicine one can take in the fight against this widespread disease. "I believe that no matter what your risk factors are, you can prevent cancer," said Natural Pharmacist Dave Foreman, R.Ph. "My theory is a simple one: Give your body the tools it needs and it will fix itself."

"Cancer patients undergoing chemotherapy, radiation, or combined therapy need nutritional support to deal with the barrage of damage these treatments cause the body. Chemotherapy and radiation kill cancer cells as well as healthy cells. When destroyed, these cells release toxins into different parts of the body, which can cause serious health issues if not removed properly by the body Flor-Essence facilitates the removal of toxins from the blood, lymphatic system, kidneys, liver, and bowel."

"In regard to cancer and immune-system health, a scientific review conducted by the National Cancer Institute's Office of Cancer Complementary and Alternative Medicine (OCCAM) noted the effects from individual herbs used in the Flor-Essence formula to include the following: • Protection against cellular damage ?Anticarcinogenic • Induction of apoptosis of tumor cells ?Immuno-modulator • Antitumor ?Anti-inflammatory • Free radical scavenging activity ?Antiestrogenic The Herbs The formula's eight herbs have traditionally been viewed as cleansing and strengthening herbs."

"IPg also has profound benefits in areas of kidney stones, antiplatelet activity, lowering cholesterol and triglycerides, prevention of free radical-related damage after a heart attack, and sickle cell anemia. HOW TO USE For cancer protection and treatment, reducing the risk of kidney stones, and supporting circulatory health, take two capsules of IP^ with inositol twice daily, about 30 minutes before meals. Dosage can vary, depending on specific conditions. Four to six grams is a safe, effective range for people with cancer."

"Tips on Using Fennel SELECTION AND STORAGE: • Select fennel bulbs that are whitish or pale green in color and firm without signs of damage. • Store fresh fennel in the refrigerator crisper for up to four days. PREPARATION AND SERVING SUGGESTIONS: • The three different parts of fennel—the base, stalks, and leaves—can all be used in cooking. • Use it for meats and poultry, but even more for fish and seafood. • Toasting fennel seeds accentuates their flavor. They can be added to meat dishes for an authentic Italian flavor."

"The extra red blood cells thicken the blood, possibly leading to tissue and organ damage as well as to strokes, heart attacks, or blood clots in the lungs, legs, and elsewhere. Indeed, without treatment, half the people with PV die within two years. Horses sweat, men perspire, and women glow. —Popular saying NO SWEAT Some people never seem to sweat. No matter how hot and steamy it is, they remain cool as a cucumber. They may, in fact, have the hallmark of hypohidrosis, the decreased ability to sweat, or even anhidrosis, the inability to sweat."

"It can also lead to permanent organ damage. Priapism is very common in men with sickle-cell anemia; indeed, about 42% of men who have this condition will suffer from priapism at some point in their lives. (It's also a common reaction to an uncommon event, a black widow spider bite. But you'd be more likely to be aware of SIGN OF THE TIMES The 18th-century French surgeon Francois Gigot de Peyronie reported three cases of the penile disorder that now bears his name."

"This "play of chance" caveat seemed like a not very well camouflaged attempt at damage control. Then I noticed that the two authors of the review article had financial ties to the manufacturers of Celebrex and Vioxx, even though financial relationships between authors of review articles and drug companies were prohibited by the New England Journal of Medicine at the time the article was published."

"This was a rough ride, with the volume turned all the way up on all the discomfort and risks of chemotherapy: hair loss; nausea and vomiting; ulcers on the inside of the mouth and the gut; possible damage to the heart, kidneys, and nerves; and the risk of serious infection until the immune system recovers. Knowing how sick Ms. Fletcher would become from the therapy itself and sadly aware of how advanced her breast cancer was, I asked the oncologist if she was sure this was the right thing to do."

"While low-pressure and low-temperature distillation will not damage the oils' sensitive chemical structures, high-temperature and high-pressure processing saves the manufacturer both time and money but seriously compromises the quality of the essential oil being extracted. Oils damaged in this way can be further adulterated by the addition of chemical compounds (synthesized in labs) that are technically identical to those found in the plants themselves."

"If your green hair doesn't seem related to swimming or bathing, it could be a more serious sign of excess exposure to mercury, which can cause neurological, muscular, sensory, and cognitive damage. SIGNIFICANT FACT Most adults have 100,000 to 150,000 hairs on their scalp at any one time. On average, natural blondes have the most hairs (140,000), while redheads have the fewest (90,000). Striped Hair Green hair may be medically unimportant, but striped hair is not. Known as the flag sign, the striped hair is actually bands of discolored or depigmented hair."

"The adrenal glands are the main site of stress damage in the body. Certain supplements can nourish depleted adrenal glands while encouraging adrenal cortex secretions, which help to maintain optimal hormone balance. In addition to the supplements described in Chapter 5, I designed an Adrenal Boost formula to increase overall energy and decrease fatigue. It is helpful for people who are under stress because it supports the glands that are responsible for energy flow. Anyone whose adrenal system is depressed by stress should also take 7-keto DHEA."

"How many heart attack patients would require de-tailed proof of the benefit when their cardiologist says, "We should do a cardiac catheterization to make sure that none of your coronary arteries is about to become completely blocked and cause more damage to your heart"? How many new mothers would say no if their baby's doctor recommended transfer to the intensive care nursery? Third, the need for supply-sensitive services must be determined by the doctors who perform the service."

"The researchers also found that nonexistent sweating can be evidence of damage to sweat glands from burns and other injuries, as well as various skin diseases. These sweating disorders can also signal some serious neurological disorders, such as Parkinson's disease and Guillain-Barre syndrome (see Chapter 7), an autoimmune nerve disorder that causes numbness, weakness, and sometimes paralysis of the limbs."

"These cycles were so frequent and consistent that humans-and all other animals-developed genetic sequences that activate only during periods of starvation, protecting cells from damage. Obviously, if a creature makes it through a period of starvation, it can pass along its genes. In Phase 3 of Diet Evolution, you'll learn how to activate these genes-without the starvation! PLANTS AS ALCHEMISTS Now let's learn some lessons from plants."

"Will we destroy its delicate balances, or will we set out to heal the damage we have already inflicted? Will we manage to evolve as a conscious social and cultural species—or will we become extinct like the dinosaurs? The question is: Evolution or extinction? A Chinese proverb warns, "If we do not change direction, we are likely to end up exactly where we are headed." Applied to today's world, this would be disastrous: • There is deepening insecurity in countries both rich and poor and greater propensity in many parts of the world to resort to terrorism, war, and other forms of violence."

"From bouts of uncontrollable behavior to school suspensions to the stigmatizing of brothers and sisters because of their unruly sibling, the damage escalates quickly. Parents argue, children fight, and family vacations become impossible. With so many families suffering, it is no wonder that the pharmaceutical industry has made an enormous effort to market drugs for ADD/ADHD. Our children's medical/social/academic ill fortune has become a billion-dollar business, and we're discovering that no miracle drug exists for this disorder."
- Jay Gordon, The ADD and ADHD Cure: The Natural Way to Treat Hyperactivity and Refocus Your Child (Get the book.)

"Children with ADD/ADHD have it rough, and sometimes there is only so much a parent can do to undo the damage that is done outside of the home. These children have been singled out in class, ostracized by their classmates, and sometimes even ridiculed by former friends. And what's worse, they might even accept all the mean remarks about their character or intellect as the truth, no matter what their parents say to the contrary. Self-doubt and defeatism make everything that much harder."

"School grading systems are especially unsympathetic to the learning differences and obstacles that are unique to each child; and so where the system fails, you must guard your child against the damage that it can do to his or her progress. The more effort your child has been putting into improving grades, the more hurt he or she will be by a less-than-satisfactory one. The child certainly won't need you to act disappointed in him or her to feel any worse."

"Even when the contradictory results were published, the response of many recognized experts in the field seemed to focus more on damage control to protect statin sales than on unbiased evaluation of the scientific evidence. Why do doctors accept such obvious distortions and commercial intrusions into what ought to be the inviolable standards of medical science and medical care?"
