Pulse of Health Freedom - May 19, 2009

FDA Calls Cheerios an "Unapproved Drug"

http://aahf.convio.net/site/R?i=GmH4RLpyFqEebJRDPtdUYw..

The Food and Drug Administration learned that General Mills claimed on
its cereal box that Cheerios can help lower cholesterol, and said on
their website that "diets rich in whole grain foods can reduce
the risk of heart disease." So they declared that Cheerios is
now an unapproved drug, and must go through FDA new drug approval
process!

AAHF Asks Senate Finance Committee to Make Privacy, Transparency, and
Independent Research High Priorities in the New Healthcare Plan

http://aahf.convio.net/site/R?i=uIOfOCuK-WdJdRSD-y3UiQ..

Last week, AAHF contacted the Senate Finance Committee, which is
working on proposals to improve patient care and reduce healthcare
costs. We asked them to ensure that patient participation in the
electronic health records database be strictly voluntary, that
healthcare planning decisions are not made by people with conflicts of
interest, and that comparative effectiveness research include
integrative and alternative therapies.

Why Is FDA Protecting the BPA Lobby?

http://aahf.convio.net/site/R?i=6sz9p1k7cdh8h1N-HsIgnQ..

As we have reported previously, bisphenol A (BPA), a chemical in the
packaging or contents of many products, may cause cancers,
reproductive defects, diabetes, ADD, asthma, and autism. Now emails
obtained by the (Milwaukee, WI) Journal Sentinel show that the FDA
sought information from the BPA industry's chief lobbyist to discredit
a Japanese study that found it caused miscarriages in workers who were
exposed to it. These emails show a pattern of preferential treatment
over the past nine years that was not afforded to independent
scientists.

Minnesota Court Orders Chemotherapy for 13-Year-Old

http://aahf.convio.net/site/R?i=EhmSt6OH5ZhBaI_Sxqg_rg..

In an update to an article we published last week, a judge has ruled
that Daniel Hauser, a 13-year-old boy from Sleepy Eye, Minnesota, must
receive conventional medical treatment for Hodgkin's
lymphoma--over his parents' objections. The Hausers, who
live on a dairy farm, prefer natural medicines and alternative
treatments for illnesses.

Senate HELP Committee Approves Margaret Hamburg as New FDA
Commissioner

http://aahf.convio.net/site/R?i=KSaWSzsHPgN7sZ5EqEnWtQ..

In the wake of FDA animosity against supplements and scientific
openness, the Senate HELP Committee has approved President
Obama's nomination of Dr. Margaret A. Hamburg, a former New York
City health commissioner, as the next commissioner of the Food and
Drug Administration. The approval process now moves to the full
Senate.

  1. Have you ever considered about including a little bit more than just
    your articles? I mean, what you say is fundamental and everything.
    However think of if you added some great visuals or
    videos to give your posts more, “pop”! Your content is
    excellent but with images and videos, this blog could definitely
    be one of the best in its field. Excellent blog!

  2. I do not know whether it’s just me or if perhaps everyone else experiencing issues with your blog. It looks like some of the text on your content are running off the screen. Can someone else please comment and let me know if this is happening to them too? This could be a issue with my browser because I’ve had this happen previously.
    Appreciate it

  3. If you don’t use a balanced keybinding for
    your character, you will simply suck. Spell power – increases damage and healing done by spells.
    There are numerous ways to make money that include mercenary
    assignments, street vending or grinding (battling in player
    versus player or player versus environment mode) are all pretty standard ways of making gold.

  4. To maximize the effect of natural treatment, holistic treatment
    for anxiety was introduced. The best part is you can actually heal
    them almost instantly. Or maybe you only need to visit the
    bathroom to set them off.

  5. The Internet is a very public place and information uploaded has
    a tendency to stick around indefinitely. Another
    of the big online dating tips for men will deal with the final mistake to be
    discussed: appearing shallow. The fact is that a number of people use the internet for ulterior motives and it is therefore important to protect yourself from cyber
    scammers.
