Goodbye to 'Got Milk?'
Dr. Cathie Ann Lippman writes, "Apparently the 'Got Milk?' advertising campaign — developed in an attempt to convince the public that milk must be a part of everyone's diet — is being dumped. When I was growing up, the message was loud and clear that in order to be big and strong one was supposed to drink milk every day. When I became an alternative physician I learned what drinking milk really meant."
By ICIM member Elizabeth Vaughan, MD:
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. Interestingly enough, this spike in the rates of many conditions like these began around 1974. That is the year Roundup went on the market. Since 2000 when it went off patent, it has been used increasingly worldwide.

Magnesium intake associated with decreased arterial calcification
JACC Cardiovasc Imaging via Complementary Prescriptions
A study published in November 2013 reports that increased magnesium intake is related to lower arterial calcification. Calcification within the arteries is a measure of the burden of atherosclerosis. Atherosclerosis is a systemic disease process in which fatty deposits, inflammation, cells and scar tissue build up within the walls of arteries and is the underlying cause of the majority of clinical cardiovascular events.

Wild swine, raw milk, the 1st Amendment and the $1,000-a-day pill
Alliance for Natural Health USA
In 2010, Michigan's Department of Natural Resources issued an Invasive Species Order, ostensibly to "help stop the spread of feral swine and the disease risk they pose to humans, domestic pigs, and wildlife as well as their potential for extensive agricultural and ecosystem damage." Sounds reasonable, right? It would be, if DNR's definition of "feral" were dependent on whether a feral pig is actually running hog wild, instead of whether a pig's tail is curly.

Doubts about mammograms
Debate over the benefit of mammograms continues. This article reviews a recent study of 90,000 women over 25 years to determine if early detection of breast cancer reduced death rate.
Healing with language: Submodalities and states
Previously articles have mentioned the importance of recognizing and using submodalities, the subtle distinctions of the internal processing of each of the major sensory systems: visual, auditory and kinesthetic. People use their internal representations of their sensory experiences to create and process meanings. Each of the major sensory systems or modalities has submodalities that influence meaning.

Contamination and bio-pollution: The criminality of the GM biotech industry
Green Med Info
There is currently a battle waging across the planet over genetically modified crops. It seems like not a month goes by when a new report is released on the health, environmental or productivity aspects of GM organisms. The GM biotech industry tries to assure governments and the public about the safety and efficacy of their products, while study after study calls into question its claims.
