WikiWars
WikiDoc
Anyone who has searched Wikipedia for the term chelation has found a biased and negative opinion, which doesn't take into account the results we find in our practices. ICIM speaker Dr. Tony Lamas and others have started a WikiDoc to address that bias and describe the TACT trial results.

By ICIM member Dale Guyer MD (and ideas from other ICIM colleagues):
A few of my favorite things

Dr. Dale Guyer writes, "I was having a conversation the other day with a colleague who works in the Naturopathic field. We had discussed simple treatments that have been predictably very effective but often not well known. I shared that I had had the blessing of learning over the years from several colleagues who have been gracious enough to share their own clinical experience with me. This clinical 'trickle down' effect has had a very substantial positive result for many patients that I consult with on a day to day basis. I thought it would be interesting to outline a few examples of these treatments in terms of their overall effectiveness."

Alternative treatments to protect your heart without drugs
By Chauncey Crandall, M.D.
Dr. Chauncey Crandall writes, "Some people contend that the pollutants we are bombarded with daily cause a buildup of lead, other metals and harmful minerals in the blood. They further suggest that this is a major cause of heart disease. I've long been a skeptic but new research has persuaded me to take a second look."

Tell Congress to suspend bee-toxic pesticides

Center for Food Saftey
On Dec. 2 the European Union officially began its 2-year moratorium on three of the worst neonicotinoid pesticides — neonics for short — in order to protect bees and other pollinators. Even though the E.U, has taken the much needed step of curbing the use of neonics, U.S. regulatory agencies have yet to step up to the plate and take the actions needed to protect pollinators.

By ICIM member Terry Chappell, MD:
Do more guns make us safer?

There was no correlation between the mental illness rate in a country and its crime rate but there was a positive correlation between the mental illness rate and firearm related deaths. Interestingly, the crime rate in the U.S. is only about half the rate in Canada and in the United Kingdom but Japan’s crime rate is less than half of ours. Obviously, there are multiple factors at play.

Surviving holiday feasts
AHHA
The holiday season brings with it a mixture of issues and challenges. Aside from hits to our budget for glittery outfits and gifts, the next biggest challenge is to prevent overeating and weight gain. The fact that most Americans suffer from irregular metabolisms makes us more susceptible to weight gain during this time of year. Food is used as the common thread and as a major element of an affirming, wholesome environment in which to be social. Here are a few suggestions that will help you push back from the table and override those impulses to overeat.

Evidence-based institutionalized fraud in the medical research system
Regenetek
As predicted, the other shoe has dropped on the medical research industry with respect to the influence of Big Pharma on the results of clinical trials. In an industry article published Nov. 19 in PLOS Biology, Dr. Adriane Fugh-Berman argues that the study of all science within institutions, not just clinical trials, is shaped by the funders of those studies. Fugh-Berman implicates the pharmaceutical industry and statistically evaluates their influence on the data.
