Standardizing benchmark dose calculations to improve science-based decisions in human health assessments
Environmental Health Prospectives
Benchmark dose (BMD) modeling computes the dose associated with a pre-specified response level. While offering advantages over traditional points of departure, such as no-observed-adverse-effect-levels, BMD methods have lacked consistency and transparency in application, interpretation and reporting in human health assessments of chemicals.

Nutrition, roundup and modern health epidemics
It's hard to ignore the headlines. Obesity and diabetes have risen to epidemic proportions. Autism, infertility and Celiac disease are all on the rise, as are dozens, if not hundreds, of other conditions.

What's the skinny on coconut oil?
The Guyer Institiue
Old nutritional knowledge categorized fat in two ways. Saturated fat was “bad” and unsaturated was “good”. This put coconut oil in the “bad” fat category due to its high saturated fat content. All saturated fat was believed to cause artery clogging heart disease. With this black and white theory, doctors and dietitians urged people to avoid coconut oil.

If you want to get truly terrible advice on health, foods and nutrition, just tune into the mainstream media. Across all the three-letter networks, high-circulation newspapers and establishment websites, you'll discover a bizarre cesspool of truly dangerous, outdated and pharma-influenced health advice that's more likely to get you killed than keep you informed.

Green Med Info
A remarkable new case report describing the dramatic recovery of a 75-year-old Parkinson's disease patient after following a 3-month long gluten free diet reveals the need to explore whether there is an increased prevalence of silent or symptomatic celiac disease or non-celiac gluten sensitivity both in those afflicted with Parkinson's disease and the related multi-factorial neurodegenerative condition known as Parkinsonism. Published in the Journal of Neurology, the report notes that celiac disease often manifests with only neurological symptoms, even in advanced age.
