By ICIM Nashville speaker William Shaw, PhD:
Evidence that increased acetaminophen use in genetically vulnerable children appears to be a major cause of the epidemics of autism, attention deficit with hyperactivity and asthma

It appears that the marked increase in the rate of autism, asthma and attention deficit with hyperactivity throughout much of the world may be largely caused by the marked increase in the use of acetaminophen in genetically and/or metabolically susceptible children and the use of acetaminophen by pregnant women. Toxicity of acetaminophen may cause autism by overloading the defective sulfation pathway catalyzed by phenolsulfotransferase, which is deficient in autism, leading to overproduction of the toxic metabolite N-acetylp- benzoquinone imine.

Diabetic drugs cause cardiovascular disease?

In 2011, the FDA slammed restrictions on the diabetic drug rosiglitazone because it apparently increased the risk of vascular problems. Most diabetic complications are vascular. Other new diabetic drugs also had suspicious results. Now the FDA is saying there isn't enough evidence to say they are safe or dangerous.

The relaxation mineral

Magnesium has been referred to as the relaxation mineral because of its ability to calm the user down. Magnesium is required for over 360 biochemical reactions in your body. If there is low magnesium intake then the body can not complete energy pathways required to feel your best. NIH states that greater than 65 percent of the population is deficient in this crucial mineral. Due to poor diet and over-farming that strips magnesium from the soil, virtually everyone requires magnesium supplementation for maximum vitality.

Healing with language: Because
SCS Matters
When you are giving lifestyle suggestions, you will do well to remember that the word "because" has a powerful linguistic punch simply because it is common for people to respond to linguistic patterns almost as easily as to the logic — or lack of logic — of a statement.

The mindful stomach
Galveston Daily News via American Board of Integrative Holistic Medicine
The Okinawans are among the longest living people on earth with many living to over a hundred. They have a saying, hara no hachi bu — eat until your stomach is four-fifths full. This practice will contribute to good health. If you fill the other fifth, it will contribute to your doctor's income. In mindful eating, notice the signals our stomach is giving us as we think about eating, start to eat and finish. Ignoring these signals or misinterpreting them can lead to overeating, eating too fast or eating out of habit rather than when we are truly hungry.

DNA testing: Do you have a right to test your own DNA? FDA says no
Alliance for Natural Health USA
There's a reason your government is whittling away at your healthcare options and driving costs out of control — and not a good one. America spends more than $2.6 trillion a year on healthcare. At the same time, government is tightening the regulatory reins on nutritional and natural methods to support health — an approach that isn't lowering healthcare spending but raising it.
