"A year later, the FDA pressed Wyeth to remove Redux and a similar diet drug called Pondimin from the market after doctors reported that they were injuring the heart valves of as many as a third of the patients who took them. By then millions of Americans had taken the drugs. The pills were later linked to dozens of deaths. Scientists rely on a system of self-policing to prevent science from being turned into science fiction. Most scientific journals employ this safeguard, which is known as peer review."

"This market," he said, "does respond to promotion." By 2006 Forest was earning two billion dollars a year from Lexapro, a drug that was more than twice as expensive as generic tablets of Celexa sold by other manufacturers. Patients and the nation's medical system would have saved billions of dollars in prescription drug costs if it had not been for the magical power of Forest's corporate science, which had turned three failed studies into a blockbuster of a success."

"By 2007 more than a dozen drugs approved since 1992 had been pulled from the market or had steep restrictions put on their use. The agency said it could no longer argue that the products helped patients more than harmed them. These drugs were taken by millions of people, and killed hundreds, before they were withdrawn. The law should be changed so that the industry no longer pays fees to the FDA. America needs regulators who can do their work without feeling a need to please the companies that are paying their salaries."

"In April 2005 the FDA demanded that Pfizer, which had taken over Pharmacia, remove the drug from the market. Regulators said the risks of the drug exceeded its meager benefits. By then doctors had prescribed it to millions. All this was eerily reminiscent of another industry that attempted to create "science" to increase corporate sales. It is now well known that the tobacco industry hired academic scientists to sign their names as the authors of articles in medical journals that tried to refute the accumulating evidence that cigarettes were killing hundreds of thousands of Americans a year."

"One reason is because these drugs are intended for children, and children represent a market category that has historically been of marginal interest to drug companies. Drug companies are generally reluctant to invest in medications for kids, because there are so many difficult legal issues involved with administering drugs to children. Also, even though autism is now more common than ever before, it is still a small market segment when compared to the markets that exist for conditions such as diabetes, cardiovascular disease, cancer, obesity, and depression."

"But therein lies the beauty of the market. Even our vices and our warts are turned into virtues in spite of themselves. Only commerce and the hope of a dollar could force us into the company of people so dissimilar from ourselves that we might not otherwise have chosen to know them. To the French and the rest of the global brigade making good, what goods do the Indians have to make and offer? That's easily reckoned."

"The contraceptive sponge was originally introduced in 1983 and remained on the market until January 1995. It was taken off the market because the manufacturer chose not to modernize the manufacturing and hygiene standards. In 2005, the Today sponge returned to the marketplace with a new manufacturer. The sponge is a convenient, disposable, one-size-fits-all vaginal contraceptive that can be purchased over the counter at most drugstores. It is used with a spermicide and offers an 82 to 92 percent effectiveness rate."

"Now, the kicker is that in 2007 and 2008, the monthly payments on about $600 billion of these subprime mortgages will increase by as much as 50 percent, once the two-year teaser periods are up. Lured by ARM'd and dangerous loans, fewer and fewer people now own their homes at all. More and more are gamblers, betting that property values will rise fast enough for them to refinance again and again.6 Yes, the borrower could get some slack on the noose."

"As business dries up, there's increasing pressure on lenders, brokers, title companies, and appraisers to be profitable. That means loan and title documents aren't scrutinized as carefully as they might be, and courts—many of them so low-tech they resemble Mayberry—can't keep up with the volume of paper.... It's like a tasting menu for con artists and grifters, so tempting that in some cities drug dealers have turned to mortgage fraud, plaguing lower-income neighborhoods with crooked mortgages rather than crystal meth."

"Redistributed Wealth: The inflation of the 2001?007 period was as strange as the boom it produced. It was a new kind of inflation that never hit the masses with higher consumer prices but became a bonanza for the lucky 1 percent of the population with substantial assets (property, art, antiques, stocks) and the few hundred thousand who work in the financial industry. As for middle-class workers, the American advantage, which had begun eroding in the mid-1970s, deteriorated even faster with Greenspan's EZ Credit regime."

"Stuffed Wontons You can buy wonton wrappers at your local Asian foods market, or check your regular supermarket as some carry the wrappers in their Asian foods sections. Read the labels carefully. Look for packaged wontons without additives. 1 teaspoon sesame oil 1 teaspoon soy oil 1- to 2-inch piece of ginger, sliced lengthwise 1 onion, chopped 2 carrots, grated '/2 cup chopped celery 1 cup minced mushrooms 1 tablespoon soy sauce Vi cup oat or spelt bread crumbs 30 wonton wrappers Heat the oils in a skillet or a wok over medium-high heat."

"Medtronic MiniMed and the Guardian RT), other technologies may already or soon be on the market. The current systems measure average blood glucose for up to three days, taking up to 288 measurements every twenty-four hours. The CGMS consists of a tiny sensing device that is implanted under the skin of the abdomen and held in place with a piece of tape. The sensor transmits its readings to a pager-sized monitor, which can be worn on a belt, and either records or displays and records the average glucose level every five minutes for up to seventy-two hours."

"And through its understanding of intersubjective cultural evolution, integral consciousness realizes that healthy market economies are living dynamic systems that exist within a cultural ecology created by the confluence of favorable laws, property security, access to education, loose capital markets, and protection from overreaching bureaucracies. As dynamic systems, modernist economies are similar to ecosystems in the way they can be easily destroyed by too much external pressure."

"The global market for autism medication was $2.2 billion in 2005, and is forecast to reach $3.5 billion by 2009. Even so, almost all of the drugs that are used to treat autism were not developed specifically for autism, but are drugs that have been approved by the FDA for other disorders. Physicians, however, use these drugs as off-label treatments for the autism-spectrum disorders. For example, one of the major categories of medication for autistics, antipsychotic medication, was originally approved for schizophrenia and other psychotic conditions."

"Overdose of ephedra can be fatal, and it was implicated in several deaths before it was removed from the market. However, no stimulating herbs are used in the Healing Program. I do recommend a few herbal preparations for specific problems, but all of these herbs-such as garlic or oregano oil-are notably benign. Supplements can, however, cause rather subtle and complex adverse reactions in some people. Unfortunately, these reactions are sometimes rather confusing. For example, a few kids may have a negative reaction to the substance phosphatidylcholine, the active ingredient in lecithin."

"PUS CELLS One cubic centimeter (cc) of commercial cow's milk is allowed to have up to 750,000 somatic cells (common name, "pus") and 20,000 live bacteria before it is kept off the market. That amounts to a whopping 20 million live, squiggly bacteria and up to 750 million pus cells per liter. According to Robert Cohen, author of Don't Drink Your Milk, the average liter of milk in Florida has 633 million pus cells, the highest in the nation. Montana is the lowest, with 236 million pus cells per liter. This is not a healthy thing, whether it is 236 or 633 million."

"Cuisinart is a time-honored favorite brand, although there are many good food processors on the market today. DEHYDRATOR When looking for a dehydrator it is important to choose one that is fan-operated, which provides even drying temperatures throughout. It should also allow for temperature selection and control. Many home models lack quality temperature controllers. The Tree of Life Cafe recommends the Excalibur dehydrator because of its efficient fan-operated system, accurate temperature control, and ease of use and cleaning."

"Natural insulation products such as cotton, cellulose, and straw bales are filling a growing niche in the insulation market. Consumers need to consider a full range of aspects concerning insulation, including energy efficiency, the environmental impact of raw material acquisition, product performance, flammability, and recycled content. At the Women's and Children's Pavilion at Hackensack, we insulated the walls with 117,000 pairs of preconsumer recycled denim jeans.

"Several name-brand combination drugs for treating type 2 diabetes are on the market. This is largely an attempt by the pharmaceutical companies to squeeze more patent life (and profit) out of expiring drugs. HORMONE RESTORATION For many aging men and women, hormone restoration has made dramatic, positive changes in their lives. Hormone restoration/replacement (estrogen, progesterone, and/or testosterone) in men and women must be evaluated carefully, with a full and careful assessment of the risks and benefits on an individual basis."

"Petroleum distillates abound in just about every conventional consumer product on the market: lip gloss, perfume, hand dishwashing liquid, fertilizer, pesticides, plastics, paint thinners, solvents, artificial fragrances, furniture polishes, stain removers, and oven cleaners. If at all possible, try to phase these highly flammable bioaccumulative compounds out of your life, especially if you're thinking about having children. Exposure to petroleum distillates might pose risks to the liver, respiratory, cardiovascular, immune, endocrine, and gastrointestinal systems."

"The amazing promise with exenatide—unlike every other antidiabetes drug on the market before this drug was FDA-approved—is that it may help regenerate beta cells. There is tantalizing evidence from experimental studies that this may, in fact, be true, but more research needs to occur to confirm this potential breakthrough. GLP-1-directed therapies like exenatide also slow the emptying of the stomach, which enhances satiety and suppresses further food intake, and inhibits the overproduction of glucose by the liver."

"When you choose to purchase or use something, it has an impact on everyone involved in the process of producing that product and bringing it to market. If a particular food product is chosen on a regular basis, a positive economic impact is experienced by the owners of the land on which it is produced, as well as by the people who work the land, insure the workers, package the products, market them, sell them, distribute them, etc. This is just one example of how we all affect and are affected by the choices that we make."

"I consider all these things "no-brainers," but I guess not for a lot of mothers, because there are so many bad and toxic products on the market. Julie S., Dallas, GA Got Milk? Earlier in the book, I discussed making informed choices about which organic products to buy. In an ideal world, you'll bring only organic foods into your home. In reality, this isn't always possible. Sometimes, you'll be forced to pick and choose, to prioritize. Once your child is no longer breastfeeding, you'll face one of these choices. Should you give your child dairy products or not?"

"Greener Building Materials Every month, it seems, another environmentally friendly alternative to traditional building materials comes onto the market. Do a little research to discover the ever-increasing pool of options now available to you. Paint. There's nothing like paint to spruce up your home. But be aware that low-level exposure to many ingredients in traditional paint formulas can irritate or burn the eyes, nose, throat, and skin, as well as cause headaches, dizziness, or nausea. Luckily, you can easily reduce your exposure to the toxins found in ordinary paints."

"Drug companies obviously spend a lot of money on this one-to-one approach in order to bring this level of education to each individual healthcare practitioner, but it does let them get more comfortable with drugs new to the market. Not so with nutraceuticals. There just isn't anyone "detailing" healthcare providers about nutrients and supplements in this manner, so many doctors don't believe in their effectiveness."

"Biguanide Metformin is the only drug in this class, and it is also the most often prescribed antidiabetes drug on the market. This drug performs several functions, the most important of which is its ability to increase the body's sensitivity to insulin. It also inhibits the overproduction of glucose by the liver, helps with weight loss, improves endothelial function, and favorably affects cholesterol and triglyceride levels. When used alone, it rarely causes hypoglycemia (abnormally low blood glucose)."

"It has yet to receive FDA approval, and larger trials are now under way with the hope of putting the drug on the market in five years. Many in the field, including myself, are dubious of their ultimate success. xaliprodene Xaliprodene is a prospective neurotrophic treatment that has nerve growth factor (NGF)-like activity. Neurotrophins are small molecules that encourage the survival of nervous cells. Currently under development by Sanofi-Synthelabo, xaliprodene is being developed as an oral treatment for AD and Lou Gehrig's disease."

"When academia had proved tedious to him, he'd moved on, and was presently a laser researcher at Stanford Research Institute (SRI), a gigantic farmers' market of a research site, at the time affiliated with Stanford University. SRI stood like its own vast university of interlocking rectangles, squares and Zs of three-storey red-brick buildings hidden in a sleepy little corner of Menlo Park, sandwiched between St Patrick's seminary and the city of Spanish-tiled roofs representing Stanford University itself."
