"She devoured issues of the publications she trusted most: The New England journal of Medicine, Vie journal of Pediatrics, The journal ofthe American Medical Association, and Lancet. But she found virtually nothing about reversing the condition. The standard treatments for asthma were not aimed at reversal, but at just controlling symptoms. Anju was dismayed. At Cook County Hospital, there seemed to be a sudden explosion of asthma cases, but no one seemed to know why it was happening, or what to do about it."

"News that neither encourages journalistic prejudices nor inflates the journal's profits is invisible. The press lords must think their typical readers are louts. And, if not before, soon after they begin reading the newspapers, they will be. In the United States, France, and Spain, journalists take themselves more seriously. They believe themselves to be heirs to Jonathan Swift—informing people on the crucial matters that affect their lives. Never mind that they are also inflating and protecting their own status. Self-awareness is not a trait taught in journalism school."

"Since the first edition of this book, research on homeopathic medicines has appeared in various prestigious medical journals, including Lancet, British Medical journal, British journal of Clinical Pharmacology, Pediatrics, Human and Experimental Toxicology, The European journal of Pharmacology, Phlebology, and The InternationalJournal of Immunology. In 1991, three Dutch professors of medicine performed a review and analysis of clinical studies of homeopathy.4 They uncovered 107 trials, 81 of which showed that homeopathic medicines were effective."

"The echinacea study, which was reported in a major American medical journal, the New England journal of Medicine, was particularly thorough. People may continue buying echinacea, but, if it works, it does so because of their belief in its efficacy rather than because it has a specific antiviral effect. Nutraceuticals Echinacea is an example of a nutraceutical, a class of food-based chemicals that are thought to have an effect on health."

"The clinical evidence as reported in such science journals as the journal of Human Nutrition, American journal of Clinical Nutrition, and journal of the American Dietetic Association clearly shows that in vegetarians, iron assimilation is as high as, or higher than, that of flesh-food eaters. Anderson, Gibson, and Sabry, in the American journal of Clinical Nutrition, report that the hemoglobin and iron levels in vegetarian women who were regularly menstruating were higher than that of women of comparable age in the general population."

"By referring back to my journal, I could track what exactly he'd been eating when he had these allergic reactions. Thanks to the notes, we quickly confirmed that he was allergic to cantaloupe and eggs at the time. Keeping a diary also allows you to reflect on the big picture of your child's development. By glancing over your notes, you can determine whether your child really is getting a balanced, healthy diet rich in fruits, veggies, whole grains, nuts, and seeds. You'll be surprised by how this journal helps to keep your child on the right track."

"A recent editorial in the British journal of Psychiatry, a major journal in its field, calls for abolishing the SD diagnosis and using a term such as "medically unexplained illness" instead. But we'll see how long it takes doctors to come around to this view. Rather than calling medically unexplained symptoms "nothing wrong," a more rational approach has been to try to come up with clinical case definitions of these disorders; that way, researchers can identify groups of patients to study and apply scientific reasoning (not just opinion) to solve their cases."

"As soon as physicians complete their medical training, they start receiving complimentary subscriptions to the reputable journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA) and the New England journal of Medicine (NEJM) from drug companies. They also receive journals published by the drug companies, and it is not always obvious that these journals are not independent. Using the same technique employed at medical conferences, the pseudojournals intersperse objective articles with articles promoting the drug company's products."

"Then it gets published and called "good science," even though the whole thing has been nothing more than collusion between pharmaceutical companies, money-hungry doctors and medical journal publishers who seem to have forgotten what scientific truth is all about. Meanwhile, honest studies about nutrition and the healing effects of foods are often rejected by those same medical journals because they "hold no interest to the readers" (the standard rejection explanation from science journals). Drug companies are protecting their turf, too Then there are the pharmacists."

"Peter Lemon of the University of Western Ontario in the journal of the American College of Nutrition suggests that people who are physically active may require 1.6 grams per kilogram, or about twice as much protein a day to meet metabolic needs than was previously thought. After studying bone metabolism in elderly women, Dr. Jane Kerstetter of the University of Connecticut says in the American journal of Clinical Nutrition that healthy women need an average of 1.2 grams per kilogram per day, or 0.55 gram per pound of body weight of protein per day to maintain bone mass."

"A few years ago, the journal of American Medical Association devoted an entire issue to complementary medicine. It talked about herbal treatment, acupuncture, and more. In the past ten years, there have been thousands of research papers in conventional medical journals on these topics. Alternative treatments share the common characteristic of maximum effect with minimal side effects."

"Leery of how this new work would be received, Benson tested the waters with a letter to the editor of the Neve England journal of Medicine in 1969. The letter said nothing about the physiological research he was undertaking with TM practitioners, but instead focused on an issue of obvious interest to the medical community at the time: drug abuse. He had learned from his subjects, he told the readers of the NEJM, that, prior to beginning their practice of TM, many had indulged in recreational drug use: marijuana, LSD, and in several cases, heroin."

"As director emeritus, I no longer take a governing role in ICSPP but I speak at the annual conferences and frequently contribute to the journal. None of the leaders of ICSPP gets paid; every one is a devoted volunteer. Inspiring Conferences The annual ICSPP conferences are always enlightening and entertaining. In addition to me, many of the professionals and reformers mentioned in Medication Madness regularly speak at our annual meetings, including international drug regulatory expert Graham Dukes, MD."

"I was in New Jersey for a case when an attorney told me that the state law journal had published an article in March 2005, entitled "Kentucky Fried Verdict Up for Grabs."12 The trial ended in 1994, but the Kentucky Supreme Court did not empower Judge Potter to investigate the case until May 30, 1996. By the time the truth about the secret settlement came out, Eli Lilly had negotiated settlements favorable to itself with most of the remaining hundred or more cases. Even after that, the overturning of the verdict and its implications never became widely known, even in the legal community."

"The evening of the hospital emergency, Andy had written in his journal, "My dad almost died last night." So, Andy had been through three tough life experiences: his grandfather's death, his friend's death, and his father's near death. According to his parents, Andy seemed to bounce back each time. With the exception of occasional stomachaches and headaches, Andy acted as if nothing fazed him. He never looked especially anxious or depressed. He dutifully went on with his school-work and dove into sports and social activities."

"Medical Journals Are an Extension of the Marketing Arm of Pharmaceutical Companies."34 In her brilliant new book, The Myth of the Chemical Cure: A Critique of Psychiatric Drug Treatment (2008), British psychiatrist Joanna Moncrieff has subjected the basic assumptions of biological psychiatry to scientific scrutiny in an easily readable style. These books and articles confirm the unholy, corrupting influence of pharmaceutical money on research and practice in the healing professions."

"In June 2005, researchers who conducted a meta-analysis of 2,950 cases of coronary artery disease reported in the journal Circulation that in patients with chronic, stable disease, intervention "does not offer any benefit in terms of death, myocardial infarction or the need for subsequent revascularization compared with conservative medical treatment."4 And a year later, Dr. Richard Kra-suski of the Cleveland Clinic's top-rated cardiology department said flatly that aggressive treatment of patients with stable angina is generally unwarranted. "

"One paper in the journal Science demonstrated that a forty-day treatment targeted to kill off only the very specific defective cells that cause the autoimmune destruction of healthy beta cells in the pancreas could effectively stop type 1 diabetes in its tracks. In Faustman's experiments, 75 to 85 percent of mice were permanently cured of type 1 diabetes—an unheard-of outcome for any autoimmune disease research of its kind."
- Donna Jackson Nakazawa, The Autoimmune Epidemic (Get the book.)

"In early 2006, a report published in The journal of the American Medical Association resulted in national headlines suggesting that low-fat diets do not decrease health risks. The JAMA article was based on a study, part of the Women's Health Initiative of the National Institutes of Health, which followed nearly 49,000 women over eight years, and it found that those prescribed a "low-fat" diet turned out to have the same rates of heart attacks, strokes, and cancers of the breast and colon as those who ate whatever they wanted."

"Patients keep a journal and take note of any type of reaction (bloating, abdominal discomfort, rashes, headaches, and any worsening of their autoimmune-disease symptoms). Gradually, with continued careful monitoring, a wider variety of foods can be added to the diet as well. In research on those with Crohn's disease, elimination diets helped symptoms to abate in a third of patients who tried them. Irritable bowel syndrome, or IBS—a gastrointestinal syndrome characterized by abdominal pain and cycles of intense diarrhea and constipation—has been found to be inflammatory in nature, says Mullin."

"He also happened to be the author of a case report in a medical journal on a newly emerging autoimmune disease that dangerously altered clotting factors. Reeling from what she calls a kind of "mortal exhaustion," Jan approached Dr. Spyropoulos after his hour-long lecture and put forth the question, "How could an active woman like me have recurring clotting even on blood thinners? What's happening to me?" Two weeks later, Jan sat on an examining table inside Alex Spyro-poulos's office, relaying to him a medical history that had stumped half a dozen physicians."

"This was a story as good as any to be found in countless New Thought texts since the turn of the century, but what gave it particular authority was that it was published in the most prestigious mainstream medical journal of its day.49 And it certainly did not hurt that the man who was telling the story was a prominent public intellectual. "If Joe Blow of Altoona" had sent in an article of this sort to the NEJM, fumed one of Cousins's rare critics, "it wouldn't even get the courtesy of a rejection."

"The study was published in the February 2000 issue of the European journal of Cancer. This case-control study conducted in central France was designed to explore whether ALA inhibits breast cancer, using fatty acid levels in breast adipose (fat) tissue as a biomarker of its intake. Biopsies of breast adipose tissue at the time of diagnosis were obtained from 123 women with invasive non-metastatic breast carcinoma, while 59 women with benign breast disease served as controls."

"According to the journal of Nutrition, "The beneficial action of IP^ is not restricted to the prevention of tumor development but perhaps to treatment of existing cancers as well." A study by Huang and colleagues provides evidence for the mechanism of IPg. In their study, the researchers note that, on a biochemical level, IPg and its family of inositol phosphates are involved in a system of messenger cells, also called a signal transduction pathway. This pathway is activated by tumor promoters by way of an enzyme: phosphatidyl inositol-3 (PI-3) kinase."

"The beneficial action of IPg is not restricted to the prevention of tumor development but perhaps to treatment of existing cancers as well," reports the journal of Nutrition. IPg with inositol can be used as a cancer prevention and treatment for a wide range of cancers. 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."

"The key protective chemicals in watercress, such as sul-foraphane, beta-phenylethyl isothiocyanate, and methylsulfinylalkyl glucosi-nolates, belong to the isothiocyanate (ITC) family, say researchers at the Division of Carcinogenesis and Molecular Epidemiology, American Health Foundation, Valhalla, New York, in a December 2000 report in the journal Carcinogenesis. In their study, these researchers found that the ITCs in watercress show chemopreventive activity toward chemically induced colon cancer and that ITCs "significantly reduced the formation" of abnormal cells."

"Researchers had access to their early journal writings and were able to determine who among them had a mostly positive attitude when faced with stressful situations and who had a more negative response to life's slings and arrows. Some nuns were in their nineties and were highly functional with full-time jobs, while others were in their seventies and disabled. What stood out for researchers was this: the nuns who wrote about their lives with the most positive attitudes at a young age were 2."
