Nature’s medicine offers relief
Moreover cow or bovine colostrum offers a potent remedy to millions afflicted with diseases and cancers. Mammals evolved to breastfeed their young. Breastfeeding for humans is natural and critical to ensure essential nutrients antibodies and immune system enhancers necessary for a healthy life. Children who are breast-fed have higher IQs and less neurological dysfunctions compared to children who are not breastfed. Infants who are breastfed are one-fifth to one-third less likely to die of sudden infant death syndrome. Mothers who breastfeed have significantly lower rates of developing breast- ovarian- and endometrial-cancers and osteoporosis.
$2.5 billion spent no alternative med cures found
The results were good enough for the federal center to grant $2. 1 million for a bigger study in 500 people that is under way now. Alternative medicine research also is complicated by the subjective nature of many of the things being studied. Pain memory cravings anxiety and fatigue are symptoms that people tolerate and experience in widely different ways. Take a question like “Does yoga work for back pain?” said Margaret Chesney a psychologist who is associate director of the federally funded Center for Integrative Medicine at the University of Maryland. “What kind of yoga? What kind of back pain?” And what does it mean to “work” ? to help someone avoid surgery hold a job or need less medication?Some things ? the body meridians that acupuncturists say they follow or energy forces that healers say they manipulate ? cannot be measured and many scientists question their existence. Studying herbals is tough because they are not standardized as prescription drugs are required to be.

Weird Asia News (press release)
Known as transgenic because of their added genes the monkeys emit a green glow from the skin hair and blood of their feet. Details on the glowing primates which appear in the latest edition of the scientific journal Nature include how researchers Erika Sasaki and Hideyuki kano of the Keio University School of Medicine in Japan used a virus to transfer the green gene into monkey embryos. A female monkey implanted with the altered embryos later gave birth to four offspring with the ability to glow green. The scientists involved in the study hope to use the fluorescent monkeys in research for human diseases like Parkinson?s and ALS (amyotrophic lateral sclerosis). Transgenic monkeys mice and other animals have been created in previous experiments but the ability for such animals to inherent added genes is being hailed as a breakthrough. “The birth of this transgenic marmoset baby is undoubtedly a milestone” wrote Shoukhrat Mitalipov of regon Health and Sciences University and stem cell expert Dr.

People With Mental Health Problems Receive Inadequate Medical Care …
Science Daily (press release)
This important systematic review showed widespread inequalities of care in those with mental health problems. Dr Mitchell said: “We wished to investigate whether the quality of medical care received by people with mental health conditions including substance misuse differs from the care received by people who have no comparable mental disorder. “We found that despite similar or actually more frequent medical contacts there are often disparities in the physical healthcare delivered to those with psychiatric illness with frankly poorer care offered to (or accepted by) those with pre-existing mental health problems. ”The research was based on analysing 31 valid studies (see notes to editors).
