FDA ordered to rethink antibiotics in animal feed
Reuters    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
A federal judge said the Food and Drug Administration had done "shockingly little" to address the human health risks of antibiotic use in animal feed and ordered the agency to reconsider two petitions seeking restrictions on the practice. The ruling, filed in a lawsuit brought by environmental and public-health groups, is the second recent setback for the FDA amid long-standing concern that overuse of antibiotics in animal feed is endangering human health by creating antibiotic-resistant bacteria.

New York mayor's sugary drink ban may not change soda drinkers' habits
NPR    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
AudioBrief When New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg announced he wants to ban sodas and many other sugary drinks in 16-ounce servings sizes and up, the reaction was swift and predictable. McDonald's says the ban, which applies to city restaurants and food carts, is "narrowly-focused" and "misguided." Barry Popkin of the School of Public Health at the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill, calls the move "gutsy." But will the move actually reduce obesity numbers, as the mayor intends? More

Healing with Language: What's in a name?
ICIM    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
What do the following names have in common?
  • The 30-minute Pain Clinic
  • The Center for Mental Illness
  • The Headache Center
  • The Back Pain Clinic
  • The Cancer Center
If you said that linguistically they emphasize the problem rather than the solution, you're right. This has been a common way of naming clinics, but even people who are in pain may tend to reject names of clinics that seem to promise 30 minutes more of it. What image comes to mind when you think about a center for cancer or mental illness? Now flip that linguistically and notice what imagine comes to mind when you think about a guided imagery audio called Freedom from Pain. Folks will likely flock to the Headache Relief Center and be better off for doing so. Just about everyone would be excited about Pain Away Today.

Since there is so much cultural fear around it, cancer is a bit tricky to language, but you can get really creative. How about Cancer Cures? Cancer Options? Integrative Cancer Treatments?

In general, the clinic names could be improved with the addition of one word: "Relief."
  • The 30-minute Pain Relief Clinic
  • The Center for Recovery from Mental Illness
  • The Be Headache-Free Center
  • The Clinic for Eliminating Back Pain
  • The Freedom from Cancer Center
Ahhh ... relief ... now that is a word worth remembering and a place worth getting folks to quickly.

The trouble with 'doctor knows best'
The New York Times    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
A recent deluge of do-less recommendations results from research into tests and procedures that have been arguably overused. You'd think these pronouncements would bring a sea change in the way patients are treated in this country. But it's likely that little will change. Many doctors, maybe most, will ignore these findings and keep doing what they have been doing all along. More

Mediterranean diet linked to better quality of life
Natural Standard    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Adhering to a Mediterranean diet may increase quality of life, according to a new study. The Mediterranean diet is based on the healthy eating and lifestyle habits of the people living in southern Italy, the Greek island of Crete and other areas of Greece in the early 1960s.

Vitamin C and the big 'C'
Natural News    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Vitamin C can curb the growth of cancer cells, according to New Zealand scientists who provided hard evidence to the connection between the vitamin C and killing "the big C" (cancer). Vitamin C kills cancer because cancer cells do not have the enzyme catalase to break down hydrogen peroxide into water and oxygen. Vitamin C tricks cancer cells into thinking it's sugar, so the cancer sucks it up. The result: The tumor is killed from the inside out. More

Daily supplements containing folic acid may reduce hardening of the arteries and counter the development of atherosclerosis, suggests a new meta-analysis by Chinese scientists.

A hormone-blocking pill approved in 2011 for some men with advanced prostate cancer now also seems to help a wider group of men who were given it sooner in the course of treating their disease. In a study of nearly 1,100 such men, Johnson & Johnson's Zytiga doubled the time patients lived without their cancer getting worse. More
