"Other research suggests that exposure to some phthalates affects the sexual development of baby boys at exposure rates currently seen in the U.S." (2) Still another contaminant found in half of the cord blood samples was triclosan, an antibacterial ingredient in toothpaste, deodorants, antibacterial soaps, and cosmetics. Lab studies on rats have shown that triclosan is toxic to normal liver enzymes. Of equal concern, triclosan persists in the environment and in our bodies, accumulating as it is passed up the food chain, and contributes to reduced resistance to antibiotics."

"The mechanisms of COX-2 inhibition that led to the development of the COX-2 inhibitors were discovered at a university by researchers supported by taxpayers' dollars. In order to keep making money, drug companies are under enormous pressure to create new drugs they can patent and sell without competition for twenty years, after which patents run out and generic (cheaper) versions go to market. In fact, there really aren't a lot of truly new drugs being developed these days."

"Meanwhile we neglect the development of things like primary care, which can have a real impact on health. Forty-three million Americans go without health insurance, and that number is growing. We are also paying a lot of money for health care we may never even receive, as a result of the rising costs of individual health insurance, health-care benefits that drive companies into the ground, expensive Medicare drug benefits, and uncontrollable Medicaid costs."

"The triumph of the last fifty years is the development of methodologies to test whether clinical inferences are valid before they are unleashed on the ill. These methodologies try to ensure that an association drawn between a stated health effect and any drug, surgical procedure, dietary change, or other intervention is genuine. Their success derives from the design of the clinical trials and the statistical methods to handle the data."
- Nortin M. Hadler MD, Worried Sick: A Prescription for Health in an Overtreated America (Get the book.)

"Type A usually has a slightly caved-in chest, with limited upper chest development. The body is often bent, with shoulders hunched almost as if they are afraid to breathe. Type B can be barrel-chested, through habitual overbreathing,using the upper chest more than they should as they continually try to get enough precious air. Often the lower torsos of both Types A and B are underdeveloped because they are not using their diaphragms to help them breathe. Both types often reject any suggestion of taking exercise to improve their chest and body structure."
- Dr Ron Roberts, Asthma Controlled Naturally: Techniques That Work (Get the book.)

"Swimming's many arm movements promote upper chest development and flexibility, and therefore better breathing. The controlled breathing pattern is just what an asthmatic needs for unstressful respiratory exercise. Swimming is also environmentally suitable for someone with asthma as the air is taken in just above the water and so it is already warmed and humidified and unlikely to trigger an attack. Further, while swimming the body weight is partially supported by the water."

- Dr Ron Roberts, Asthma Controlled Naturally: Techniques That Work (Get the book.)

"Sustaining this sort of breathing control, for even a minute or so a day, will improve their respiratory development. Use your initiative and devise other suitable games and activities, but remember the emphasis must be on breathing out to encourage overall relaxation and to help loosen the child's upper chest area. Be careful not to overdo these games because extended expiration can cause the child to develop a wheeze. Breathing out, or the puhhh, puhhh puffing, should stop just short of a wheeze. If a wheeze occurs, stop the game as it could perhaps trigger an attack."

"The result will be a strengthening and development of the chest, with resultant better alignment of the vertebrae in the spine and alleviation of any nerve impingement. No specific sports programme is recommended in this book, as the best sport for anyone will depend on the individual. However, before taking up a new sport discuss it with your doctor, who may wish to assess your physical capabilities first. Which Sport? Acquiring skills of sharp co-ordination, agility, quick thinking and reflex reactions can be of enormous benefit to someone with asthma."

"Above, I've given examples of how they used these discussions to enter broader debates about development of medicine as a discipline and a profession in the West. Through the lens of moxabustion, they assessed the relative importance of anatomy and experience as sources of authoritative knowledge; they asserted the necessity of medical training to the proper performance of this powerful new therapy; they critiqued lay interventions into medical debates."
- Roberta Bivins, Alternative Medicine?: A History (Get the book.)

"On the other hand, this volume illustrates that 'alternative medicine' is—if neither novel nor unique to the twentieth and twenty-first centuries—still by comparison a recent development.1 To have medical systems, theories, and practices that can properly be regarded as 'alternative', one must have a recognized, definable, and at least relatively stable orthodoxy to which they oppose themselves. Such an orthodoxy only emerged in the western medical marketplace in the nineteenth century. So where does this leave our perception that something different?"

- Roberta Bivins, Alternative Medicine?: A History (Get the book.)

"The development of drugs like these leads to the prediction that medicine is about to make a critical turn. It's reasonable to say that chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS), fibromyalgia (FM), and IBS are "functional illnesses" in that there is no evident pathology. But it's no longer okay to equate "functional" with "all in your head." The efficacy of these drugs in relieving the symptoms of these medically unexplained syndromes means that they are, in fact, real diseases."

"Even more disturbingly, the OTA is now spearheading the development of a new "organic personal care standard" which will create allowances for products that contain just a few organic ingredients in a cocktail of synthetic ingredients. Accordingly, this initiative has been strongly challenged by the Organic Consumers Association."

"It is thought that there is a strong link between aluminum and the development of Alzheimer's disease. An excellent exercise for the skin is brushing it vigorously and regularly with a soft, natural fiber brush, which can be purchased from a healthfood store. A good time to brush the skin is just before a shower. This helps remove dead skin, unclog the pores, and improve blood and lymph circulation. The skin is naturally acidic. Rubbing the body all over after a shower with a dilute solution of unpasteurized apple cider vinegar will help keep the skin healthy and vital."

"This exposure seems to be particularly dangerous during childhood and adolescence; years of research data has clearly shown a relationship between the number of sunburn episodes before the age of fifteen and the subsequent development of skin cancer later in life. More Problems With Sunscreens The Environmental Working Group, did an analysis of 868 sunscreen products sold in the U.S. and discovered that 83 percent either contained ingredients that either raised health safety concerns or were inadequate in protecting the wearer from the sun despite assurances made by the product manufacturers."

"Moreover, its freedom from material constraints could lead to an acceleration in development that far outstrips our current rates of technological progress. A Blind Spot on the Future Because we find it difficult to entertain the idea of an ever-growing pace of life, most of us have developed a blind spot about the future. We can imagine how things will be if they keep on changing as they are now—and even that can make us pretty dizzy —but we find it hard to picture a world in which change keeps coming faster. As a result, we overlook, or ignore, the full consequences of this trend."
- Peter Russell, Waking Up In Time: Finding Inner Peace In Times of Accelerating Change (Get the book.)

"Each new development has occurred in a fraction of the time of the previous one—somewhere between one-quarter and one-tenth the time. The stages of evolution that I've chosen here are, of course, somewhat arbitrary. One could argue that other events marked equally significant leaps forward, or that some that have been included should be dropped. This would lead to different lengths of time and to different ratios between them. But however one chooses the significant markers, the pattern is generally the same: the intervals get shorter and shorter."

- Peter Russell, Waking Up In Time: Finding Inner Peace In Times of Accelerating Change (Get the book.)

"If rates of development continue to speed up, we could see such degrees of progress compressed into a few decades. And then to mere years. And after that. . . ? Who knows—we could experience as many leaps in our own lifetimes as have occurred in the whole of our evolution so far. Singularities ? The Shape of the Future Now there is more "now" than there was even a few months ago, and even more "now" is on the way. -ET 101 A I lswe saw in the first chapter, accelerating change is a pattern that runs throughout the history of evolution."

- Peter Russell, Waking Up In Time: Finding Inner Peace In Times of Accelerating Change (Get the book.)

"Most future scenarios, whether devised by corporate strategists, government think tanks, or science fiction writers, generally assume that the pace of development will be similar to the pace today, or perhaps a little faster. Seldom do forecasters consider the full impact of continued exponential acceleration. In the early 1950s, for example, eminent scientists were predicting that it would take at least fifty years to put a person on the moon, primarily because it would take that long to make all the necessary technological advances."

- Peter Russell, Waking Up In Time: Finding Inner Peace In Times of Accelerating Change (Get the book.)

"Indeed, sociologists—we among them—now study the growth and development of scientific knowledge, from physics and chemistry, as well as biology and medicine.29 This will be our approach. We plan to examine the very practice of medicine under the microscope. What physicians actually do will therefore be of greater interest than what they think or what others think of them. Our idea is ironic. For our critique of medicine relies on reports of medical research, written, for the most part, by physicians themselves. Of course, our goal is different from the authors of these articles."
- Gerald E. Markle and Frances B. McCrea, What If Medicine Disappeared? (Get the book.)

"Hormone Replacement Therapy We would like to think that the development of new drugs follows a prudent and rational procedure: that research protocols are carefully designed and evaluated, and that decisions about dosage and use are evidence-based, so that ultimately such drugs are both safe and effective. Unfortunately, when Fran studied the estrogen replacement controversy,29 she found something very different."

- Gerald E. Markle and Frances B. McCrea, What If Medicine Disappeared? (Get the book.)

"The industry claims that it spends $802 million on the development of each new drug, a cost that justifies high retail prices. Angell recalculated the cost at about $100 million. In all, and by any measure, the industry invests precious little in R&D, and therefore—despite its public presentation—is not an innovative industry. Second, what do we get for that money? Very little, it would seem. Most new drugs are so-called me-too, meaning that they are chemical variations of existing drugs. For example, with its patent for Prozac about to lapse, Eli Lilly became quite creative."

"Since the development of SSRIs, the diagnosis of depression has increased a thousandfold! The NIMH estimates that in any given one year period, 9.5% of the population, or about 19 million American adults, suffer from a depressive illness. Rates are now similarly high for youth. Why so much depression? Why so much treatment with SSRIs? According to a British psychiatrist: "Reification of biomedical diagnosis acts as a 'justification' for the use of SSRIs in the treatment of childhood depression."53 If a treatment is available, physicians will find patients who suffer the disease!"

"At the 1866 International Sanitary Conference at Constantinople, Britain was pointedly reminded of its special responsibility to fight cholera, based on its stewardship of India and its 'armies' of contagious pilgrims, then seen as 'the most powerful of all causes which conduce to the development and to the propagation of epidemics of cholera.'11 A subsequent essayist spelled it out even more clearly: 'The squalid pilgrim army..."

"Another type of anti-nutrient acts in a way similar to that used by cancer specialists to destroy or slow the development of rapidly growing cells. Some plants produce "fake" compounds that molecularly mimic important proteins or enzymes essential for cells to grow and divide. If an insect eats these "fake" proteins, they get incorporated into its cells and prevent growth and division. Bye-bye, insect. But before you shrink from ever eating another leaf of lettuce, remember that humankind has evolved alongside plants over millions of years, during which we have relied on them for sustenance."

"An extensive comparison of the health of the citizens of industrialized countries done by the Organisation for Economic Co-Operation and development (OECD) confirmed the conclusions presented in Dr. Starfield's article. The United States again ranked poorly, with 18 industrialized countries having greater life expectancy* One of the best single indicators of a country's health was developed by the World Health Organization (WHO); it is called "healthy life expectancy." This measure represents the number of years that a child born now can expect to live in good health (i.e."

"These advertising agencies are now full-service operations, as an executive for one of the biggest health care marketing companies told the New York Times: "We provide services that go from the beginning of drug development all the way to the launch of your products." The dialectic of the market rolls along."

"After the fall of the Western Empire of Rome and the founding of the Byzantine Empire in 476 CE, a further shift occurred in the development of European societies. The rise of Christianity modified the classical culture of Greece. The medieval belief system added to the classical concepts a divine source: the world's creator and prime mover as well as ultimate judge. Reason came to be embodied in the Holy Trinity and incarnated in man, God's creation. This belief system, whose principal elements were elaborated by St."

"The evolution of feathers, for example, does not produce a reptile that can fly: radical changes in musculature and bone structure are also required, along with a faster metabolism to power sustained flight. The development of the eye requires thousands of mutations finely coordinated with one another. Yet the probability of a single mutation producing positive results is negligible: statistically only one mutation in 20 million is likely to be viable. By itself, each mutation is likely to make the phenome less rather than more fit, and if so, it will be eliminated in time by natural selection."

"Industrial development then spread from textiles to iron, as cheaper cast iron replaced more expensive wrought iron. The size of the businesses that utilized these technologies increased, and so did their appetite for energy and material resources. By the second half of the nineteenth century the first industrial revolution brought a battery of new technologies on the scene. The Bessemer steel process was developed in the 1860s, and the rotary kiln used in cement production was patented by Fredrick Rancome in 1885."

"Live in ways that respect the right to life and to economic and cultural development of all people, wherever they live and whatever their ethnic origin, sex, citizenship, station in life, and belief system. 3. Live in ways that safeguard the intrinsic right to life and to an environment supportive of life of all the things that live and grow on Earth. 4. Pursue happiness, freedom, and personal fulfillment in harmony with the integrity of nature and with consideration for the similar pursuits of others. 5."
