"Aposhian, who has more than 100 publications on heavy metal poisoning to his name, is hard of hearing and was obstreperous at times during his cross-examination on Monday. For example, he insisted that in vitro studies were nearly always reproducible in animals, and that animal studies were nearly always reliable models for human effects. This is not a belief to which most toxicolo-gists would subscribe. Also under cross-examination, Aposhian said that he was not an immunolo-gist and that he had composed his theory of thimerosal-induced immunological damage "three or four weeks ago."

"For example, Chinese researchers from Zhejiang Medical University and Zhejiang Cancer Hospital, Hangzhou, Zhejiang Province, China, used maitake extract among 63 cancer patients as an adjuvant therapy with their chemotherapy and radiation treatments. The patients took the maitake extract before meals, four times per day. The results were highly gratifying with a 95.83 percent success rate against solid tumors and 90.91 percent among the leukemia patients. The total effectiveness rate for overall immune enhancement was rated by the researchers at 86.67 percent."

"Routine hair loss or a runny nose, for example, became a medical problem requiring treatment with expensive prescription drugs.) Widespread public misconceptions about drug ads contribute to their effectiveness. An article in Health Affairs reported that half of all respondents in a survey conducted in Sacramento County, California, believed that the government approved each drug ad before it was shown to the public, and 43 percent believed that only "completely safe" drugs could be advertised. Neither belief is true."

"But when the truth finally comes out about how doctors' access to the scientific evidence has been manipulated, we find that this is exactly what happens. One example stands out above all the rest for me because in this case I was seriously misled in the care of so many of my patients. In the 1980s, cardiologists had a low threshold for recommending 24-hour ambulatory heart monitor ("Holter monitor") tests. The purpose of these tests was to identify heart patients who were having irregular heartbeats that put them at increased risk of fatal arrhythmias—like the one Mr. Peters almost suffered."

"Companies can design studies in which the doses of the drugs being compared are not equivalent. For example, Nexium, the "purple pill" for gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD), is chemically almost identical to the acid-blocking drug Prilosec. Both are manufactured by AstraZeneca. In 2001, the patent was about to expire on Prilosec. This basically means that a drug's "recipe" enters the public domain, and other companies can manufacture generic equivalents of it that sell for a small percentage of the price of the brandname drug."

"The case for implantable defibrillators is a perfect example. A patient of mine, Mr. Peters, is a 78-year-old easygoing retired mechanic who has been living alone since his wife passed away. A few years ago he was hospitalized for what turned out to be a small heart attack. While he was resting peacefully in his hospital bed, without warning his heart suddenly went into ventricular fibrillation (a rapidly fatal arrhythmia in which the heart's ventricular contractions become chaotic and ineffective)."

"Without proper food to supply adequate nutrients on a regular basis, the body is forced to rob from its own stores to carry out metabolism and bodily processes needed for survival. An example of this is osteoporosis. As the body's reserves of acid buffer minerals are depleted, it turns to the use of calcium from the bones as a neutralizer. If fed a diet that is deficient in adequate nutrition and loaded with toxic substances, the body simply is unable to eliminate the toxins and clean out metabolic wastes properly."
- Ron Garner, Conscious Health: A Complete Guide to Wellness Through Natural Means (Get the book.)

"If the body did not store the toxins, encased in a tumor for example, they would be free to range throughout the body in the bloodstream, thereby causing the death of vital tissues and organs much sooner. Cancer has a multitude of contributing factors, such as: heredity, beliefs, attitudes, habits, excesses, nutrition, environmental pollutants, and stresses, as well as various carcinogens like radiation, pesticides, toxic chemicals, dioxins, and asbestos—to name a few. It is an enzyme deficiency and an autointoxication disease."

"Our suggestions in a state of hypnosis or self-hypnosis act on the senses. For example, we can make a posthypnotic suggestion that certain foods will taste opposite to their normal taste and experience the suggested taste upon waking. Or we can suggest that we will feel minimal pain during, say, a tooth extraction, and then experience remarkably little pain. Similarly, when lucid in a dream, the senses naturally follow expectation (expectation being a type of natural mental suggestion)."

"In this process, the symptom is relieved. For example, acetylsalicylic acid, used as a painkiller, causes bleeding in the stomach or small intestine. Another top-selling painkiller causes similar stress in the liver. They relieve a symptom because they create a greater stress in another area of the body that forces it to divert its attention to the new threat. The body always tries to deal with the most serious problem first.12 Strong poisons taken into our bodies are viewed as life-threatening."

"If I lucidly dream of a fire, for example, and expect to feel no heat upon walking in it, I'll feel no heat. If I change my expectation to feel the fire's heat, my new expectation will be realized, and I'll feel definite heat. My lucid dreaming experiences made me wonder how extensively the mind influences perception and sensation while waking. Conscious in the dream state, the influence seems pervasive. During waking, I simply assumed I experienced things "as they actually exist." Yet I knew from my exposure to hypnosis that waking sensory experience could actually be considerably modified."

"Many practitioners, myself included, reserve our severest criticism for the drug industry, using the case of Ritalin as a prime example. In 2005, more than 31 million prescriptions were filled for stimulant ADHD medications in the United States, including about 10 million for Ritalin. Fueled by the magic bullet notion that popping a pill can solve a problem, sales of Ritalin and related drugs have soared more than 500 percent since ADHD became an official diagnostic category in 1980. Ritalin does provide temporary answers?"

"To give another example, men who are addicted to corn may drink a lot of beer and they can become alcoholics. They're sensitive to and addicted to the beer, but it's the corn—or sometimes some other component?in the beer that is causing the problem. Sometimes, for those with an allergy to grains, they may feel 'drunk' after eating cereal or certain types of baked goods." According to 2006 data from the National Institute of Mental Health, 40 million American adults are affected annually by anxiety disorders."

"Schachter looks closely at the clinical ecological factors: the foods in the person's current diet, the water he or she drinks, the air he or she breathes, any imbalances in the body, as well as any daily-life habits. "For example, I check for hormonal imbalances or subtle low-thyroid conditions, which are very common in depression. If these are treated, there will often be marked mood improvement. Calcium and magnesium deficiencies are very common as precipitators for anxiety in general or even panic attacks."

"HISTORY Several large epidemiological studies reveal lower incidences of heart attack, cancer, and other conditions and an increased lifespan when compared to the general population in people who consume large amounts of fish. For example, the Inuit (Eskimo) people of Greenland, who ate a high fat diet of whale, WSK/KKK/Kb seal and salmon, experienced less coronary heart disease, rheumatoid arthritis, diabetes mellitus and psoriasis than Europeans. This was attributed to a higher consumption of omega-3s. 1^ In the 1950s German scientist Johanna Budwig, w jBL m Ph.D."

"Kaegi. For example, she reports, laboratory testing "revealed that, among mice injected with human cancer cells, those given oral and intravenous Essiac showed more tumour necrosis and cell degradation than control mice." Vanderbilt University "While Essiac may not be the sole herbal remedy needed to fight breast cancer, there is a need for more homeopathic, less medically draining therapies to aid the victims of breast cancer," says Georgia Wainger, reporting on the Vanderbilt University Health Psychology home page.

"Here's an example. Thirty-five years ago, a sixty-year-old man who was carried into an emergency room in the midst of a heart attack might have gotten morphine, to ease his pain, and lidocaine (a drug that has recently been shown to cause more harm than good in stable heart attack patients). Physicians could have administered an electrical shock to his heart if it had stopped, or if he had gone into fibrillation, an abnormal rhythm of the heart. Beyond that, there was little else his doctors could have done but hope he survived."

"For example, a patient presents with acute bronchitis, accompanied by fever and coughing up of blood. After two weeks, the fever is gone, the patient is no longer coughing, and a chest X-ray shows the lungs are clear. Should the doctor (a) do a chest CT; (b) perform a bronchoscopy, which involves putting a flexible scope down the bronchial tubes to take a look at them; or (c) do nothing? The right answer is c—do nothing. The patient is cured."

"Chemo, Radiation, and Surgery First, surgery might play a role if a tumor were so large, for example, that it was impinging on another organ, thereby threatening near term death. In that case, surgery might make sense to give you the time to pursue alternatives. On the other hand, I would be very leery of any chemo or radiation treatments. I would need to see very convincing (and I mean convincing) statistical evidence that those particular treatments were indeed effective for my particular type of cancer before I would even give them a passing look."

"As an example of how deadly an exclusive diet of cooked meat is to humans, Arlin, Dini, and Wolfe, in their book Nature's First Law: The Raw-Food Diet, relate how some American prisoners during the Vietnam war were condemned to death by being fed a diet that consisted of only cooked meat. Many did not live past one month. This is very significant considering that an average person may live up to one hundred days on a complete fast.6 HEALTH AND DISEASE SINCE 1900 Why are we sicker now than people were a century ago?"

"Chronic hiccups, for example, may be a sign of drinking too much— or an early warning sign of tumors in the esophagus. Excessive flatulence can be caused by a love of raw onions—or may be a sign of gallstones. Urine that smells like overripe apples could be the result of drinking too much apple cider—or a sign of a faulty metabolism. If we close our eyes, shut our ears, and turn up our noses at the often embarrassing signs related to our bodily functions, we may be missing critical clues about our health habits or our health status. Body Signs also tackles our arms, legs, fingers, and toes."

"That means that if you're 150 pounds and lean, for example, you need 420 milligrams of magnesium a day. Unfortunately, popping a magnesium supplement isn't the perfect answer because your body doesn't absorb these supplements very well: absorption efficiency from magnesium supplements can be as low as 5 to 15 percent. Another problem with magnesium supplements is that they can give you diarrhea. This side effect is obnoxious enough to limit your interest in relying on magnesium supplements for your dietary magnesium. On the other hand, you absorb 25 to 50 percent of the magnesium in foods."
- James Dowd and Diane Stafford, The Vitamin D Cure (Get the book.)

"For example, if you smoke cigarettes, there's no guarantee that you're going to get sick and die. (We've all heard stories of the man who smoked and drank like a fiend for 80 years, only to be shot to death by a jealous husband when the smoker was discovered in bed with the other man's 20-year-old wife.) On the other hand, there's no question that your "odds" of having emphysema or lung cancer or of having parts of your mouth, lips, and tongue surgically removed increase dramatically if you smoke. It's all a question of "odds."

"A third example is the mineral chromium. Over the past few years, the synthetic versions of chromium, chromium picolinate and chromium polyni-cotinate, have been all the rage. They're even promoted as being "better" than 'Both negative studies evaluated a synthetic Beta Carotene. For what it's worth, almost all of the Beta Carotene on the market today is an isolated synthetic made from acetylene gas. Yummy! the original, but as it turns out, that's not entirely ttue."

"The trick is to create an enjoyable bedtime ritual with a series of events that you can set into motion each night. For example, you can read a book to your child right before bed. Follow this with a special bedtime song, a hug, and a kiss before tucking your child in for the night. Bedtime can easily be transformed from something to be dreaded to a warm, loving event that ends the day. Once your child is under the covers, you must be firm. It's amazing how many children get "really hungry" just as the lights are being turned out."

"Eddington's number, for example, is roughly equal to the square of 1040.) Recently physicist Lee Smolins discovered additional numerical coincidences. Observations indicate that the cosmic microwave background radiation is dominated by a large peak followed by smaller harmonic peaks. The series ends at the longest wavelength, which Smolins terms R. When R is divided by the speed of light, we obtain a measure of time that agrees with the age of the universe. When in turn the speed of light is divided by R, we get a frequency that equates to one cycle over the age of the universe."

"The minimum code is to ensure that the example set by one individual is worthy of becoming a standard, a measure, and perhaps an ideal, for all others. IN SUMMARY If accepted and adopted, the maximum and the minimum codes for moral behavior would ensure a reasonable chance of achieving a sustainable and humanly favorable dynamic equilibrium in the biosphere. The minimum code would defuse resentment and animosity arising from uneven levels of economic development; it would reduce the potential for conflict based on inequalities in living standards and access to resources."

"Exposure to iron, manganese, and silver may stain the teeth black, for example. Mercury and lead dust can leave a blue-green stain, while copper and nickel can turn teeth green to blue-green. Inhaling certain fumes, such as chromic acid, will stain teeth a deep orange. And overexposure to iodine solution and spending a lot of time in chlorinated pools can stain teeth brown. SIGN OF THE TIMES Although a New Orleans dentist is credited with inventing dental floss in the 19th century, dental floss and toothpicks have been found in the teeth of prehistoric humans."

"It was like having the services of a wise old man inside. For example, after a very simple incident that most anyone would ignore, the inner knowing would make an observation about life or suggest the prosaic incident as a living parable. The comments seemed intelligent, even remarkable. I began to sense that all around me life had meaning, if I only cared to look. Since I lived in the middle of Kansas, far from the centers of world power, the pace of life was slower and perhaps simpler, yet below the surface, at another level, I knew we had everything, all the lessons of life."

"Cracked nails, for example, can be caused by using household cleaners without gloves—or by nutritional deficiencies. Body Signs wraps up with the skin. Our skin, the body's largest organ and its most visible and vulnerable, can display a mass of signs: bumps, lumps, freckles, moles, liver spots, spider veins, wrinkles, and dimples. Its color, texture, and tone can all be important clues to countless diseases hidden beneath its surface. While many skin signs are merely cosmetic concerns, some may signify nutritional or hormonal problems, or—most important—cancer."
