Study Reveals Chemotherapy Hastened or Caused Deaths of Many

How Effective is Conventional Cancer Treatment? The findings of this study would be of little surprise to many; in fact, some would even say chemo must surely have caused or hastened more than a quarter of the deaths. Chemotherapy, after all, as virtually everyone "knows", is a severely toxic treatment method, and a person has to be "strong enough" to withstand it, which is extremely strange and illogical considering that cancer patients already have seriously compromised immune systems. There is, really, nothing intuitively right about the use of chemo to deal with cancer.

Late move on drugs by Bush FDA could be dangerous

In the waning days of the Bush administration, the Food and Drug Administration finalized new guidelines to make it easier for drug manufacturers to promote "off-label" prescription drug uses, which can be deadly for patients.

The move came despite criticism from Bush's own Department of Veterans Affairs, which said the change "favors business interests over public safety" and could lead to a "decline in drug safety." It also was crafted despite efforts by state and federal law-enforcement experts to clamp down on off-label drug marketing.

Common Chemicals May Delay Pregnancy

Chemicals known as perfluorinated chemicals, which are pervasive in food packaging, pesticides, clothing, upholstery, carpets and personal care products, may delay pregnancy, a new study suggests.

These chemicals are being phased out in the United States because of their toxic effects, and are expected to be completely gone by 2010. However, they remain in the environment and in the body for decades, and have been linked to developmental problems.

Study: Bisphenol A, used in plastic, lingers in body

A study being released today finds that bisphenol A, a chemical widely used to make plastic and suspected of causing cancer, stays in the body much longer than previously thought. The findings are significant because the longer the chemical lingers in the body, the greater chance it has of doing harm, scientists say.

Researchers from the University of Rochester in New York also say the chemical may get into the body from sources such as plastic water pipes or dust from carbonless paper and not only from food containers that leach the chemical when heated.

Studies Find Mercury in Much U.S. Corn Syrup

Many common foods made using commercial high fructose corn syrup contain mercury as well, researchers reported on Tuesday, while another study suggested the corn syrup itself is contaminated.

In one study, published in the journal Environmental Health, former Food and Drug Administration scientist Renee Dufault and colleagues tested 20 samples of high fructose corn syrup and found detectable mercury in nine of the 20 samples.

FG, Pfizer to settle $700bn suit out of court

The Federal Government yesterday told a Federal High Court sitting in Abuja that it has agreed to settle, out of court, a $700 billion civil suit it instituted against the world’s largest pharmaceutical company, Pfizer. The government said this yesterday while asking the court for adjournment to enable parties in the case resolve the matter amicably.

The government had sued Pfizer before the court for allegedly maiming or and killing in 1996, not fewer than 96 children afflicted in Kano State by bacterial meningitis through alleged illegal experimentation of its products, Trovafloxacin Mesylate, (Trovan) on them.

High Omega-6 Fatty Acid Intake Linked to Breast Cancer

The researchers suggested that one explanation for the findings might come from the fact that women with a high consumption of low-fiber bread products also had elevated levels of blood fats and insulin, both of which are risk factors for breast cancer. In the current analysis, low intake of HAs was correlated with a higher intake of bread, cakes and cookies, suggesting that some factor other than HA intake itself might have led to the increased vulnerability to omega-6s.
