Fish Oil: Why Doing Your Own Research is the Best Prescription


Recently the FDA authorized the following claim to appear on the labels of fish oil supplements:

Supportive but not conclusive evidence shows that the consumption of EPA and DHA omega-3 fatty acids may reduce the risk of coronary heart disease.

This occurred only because the FDA was repeatedly sued for violating the First Amendment. The court repeatedly found the FDA guilty and ordered them to allow evidence based medicine results to be mentioned on labels of dietary supplements, at least in the case of fish oil.

Even more dangerous than FDA suppression of medical evidence is your physician's ignorance of the medical literature. For example, in 1994, the Lancet published the Lyon Diet Heart Study which showed that a mediterranean diet reduced mortality by 70%. In 1999, one of the leading cardiologists at Massachusetts General Hospital reported in an editorial in Circulation that almost no cardiologists were familiar with the Lyon Heart Study. Circulation. 1999;99:733-735

Recently, a physician with many decades of experience in medicine commented to me that he hated to send his family members to be treated by other physicians. I asked him why, thinking he probably disagreed with treatment modalities. He surprised me when he said, "They are so ignorant!"

Once again, this demonstrates that you cannot expect the FDA or your physician to always act in your best interest. They may be ignorant, too busy, or in the worst case, actively suppressing information that only a federal court could force them to release. Each individual must take active responsibility for their own health and well being and do their own research. Failure to do this will increase your risk of morbidity and mortality, sometimes by more than an order of magnitude.

ElectroMed 2005 Symposium


ElectroMed 2005 Symposium
May 15-18, 2005
Portland, OR

Background:
Recent advances in the generation of ultrashort pulses of electrical power have opened new venues in the field of bioelectrics, bioelectrochemistry, and electrophysiology. Electrical pulses with duration down to less than one billionth of a second allow us to explore and utilize electrical interactions with biological cells and tissue. The high frequency components in the ultrashort pulses have been shown to provide a pathway to the interior of cells. Fundamental studies of high voltage field interaction with the interior of cells. Fundamental studies of high voltage field interaction with the biological cells and the corresponding cellular response to these electrical stimuli have prompted broad interests from engineers and scientists for both sensing and detection as well as manipulation and control of the biological systems for modification of cell structures and destruction of biological cells for sterilization and decontamination purposes.

As an example, non-equilibrium atmospheric pressure plasmas have recently been playing the role of an enabling technology in several industries. Amongst the novel applications, the use of atmospheric pressure “cold” plasmas in the biomedical field is experiencing a heightened interest from both the plasma science research community and the biomedical research community. This is due to the relatively recent application of these plasmas in promising medical applications such as wound healing, tissue engineering, surface modification of bio-compatible materials, and the sterilization of reusable heat-sensitive medical instruments. As more knowledge is gained on the interaction of plasmas with biological matter, plasma-based techniques will potentially become well established and the use of plasma in medical procedures will become universally accepted.

The recent findings and technological advances in this area have previously been communicated every two years in ElectroMed ’99, ElectroMed 2001, and ElectroMed 2003. A fourth international symposium on the “Non-thermal Medical and Biological Treatments using Electromagnetics Fields and Ionized Gases,” ElectroMed 2005, is scheduled to take place on May 15-18, 2005 in Portland, Oregon. Abstracts and presentations are currently solicited in, but not restricted to, the following areas:

Ø Application of electric fields for medical diagnostics and devices
Ø Bioeffects of pulsed microwaves, millimeter waves, and nonthermal plasmas
Ø Biological decontamination by pulsed electric fields
Ø Plasma-based sterilization
Ø Biomedical application of plasmas
Ø Biophysical modeling and simulations
Ø Electrobiochemcial and electrobiochemiluminescent sensing
Ø Electrobiomemetics
Ø Diagnostics and imaging techniques
Ø Effects of gene and protein extraction and expression
Ø Electroporation of cells and tissues and their application

Vitamin E Controversy


Renowned Researchers, Doctors Challenge Recent Study and Say 'Keep Taking Vitamin E'-New Web Site Provides Clarity for Consumers on Vitamin E's Proven Health Benefits

WASHINGTON, Nov 18, 2004 /PRNewswire via COMTEX/ -- "To E or not to E," a question prompted by a controversial analysis released last week, is addressed by leading researchers and physicians who recommend that Americans keep taking vitamin E supplements in recommended amounts for overall health benefits. These researchers, physicians and health officials have voiced concern and even outrage regarding a "meta-analysis" suggesting that high-dose vitamin E supplements "may increase risk of dying" among older, high-risk patients.

The Dietary Supplement Information Bureau (DSIB) has launched a new Web site - http://www.vitaminEfacts.org - to help consumers obtain accurate information on vitamin E. Visitors will find referenced materials to help them understand the analysis generating news headlines and facts on why vitamin E is safe and beneficial.

DSIB Scientific Advisory Board members were quick to respond to the issues raised in the study:

"This meta-analysis, a study of other studies published during the last 11 years, concludes there may be a very small increase in mortality associated with high dose vitamin E supplements. However, these results were generated from clinical trials of patients sick with chronic diseases or at very high risk of such conditions and cannot be extrapolated to generally healthy people looking to promote their health and prevent disease. It is important to appreciate that these researchers examined only 19 clinical trials comprised of 135,000 patients and did not investigate at all dozens of observational studies involving millions of people that show vitamin E supplementation can be beneficial and completely safe," explains Dr. Jeffrey Blumberg, a professor of nutrition at Tufts University.

NASA Uses Frequencies to Enhance Neural Tissue

>
Thanks to Char Boehme on the electroherbalism list for the following analysis:

Regeneration of nerve cells using 10 hz square EM fields

There is a NASA study which showed that use of 10 hz square wave EM fields was effective in stimulating regeneration of nerve cells. The study is located at http://ston.jsc.nasa.gov/collections/TRS/_techrep/TP-2003-212054.pdf . The reader would have to read this paper in order to discover that 10 hz was used.

It is titled "Physiological and Molecular Genetic Effects of Time-Varying Electromagnetic Fields on Human Neuronal Cells", and shows some beautiful pictures of the regenerative cells / tissues, as compared with control cells / tissues which were not regenerative.

There is related information in that author's patents at US 6485963 and 6673597, both of which are titled "Growth stimulation of biological cells and tissue by electromagnetic fields and uses thereof".

A device manufacturer (the device is called EM Probe) also posted a brief summary (included below) of the NASA study at their website http://www.em-probe.com. This is not intended to be an endorsement of that device, but just passing along information.

NASAs CONCLUSION:

"The up-regulation of these genes is in no manner marginal (1.7-8.4 logs) with gene sites for collagen production and growth the most actively stimulated."

"We have clearly demonstrated the bioelectric/biochemical potentiation of nerve stimulation and restoration in humans as a documented reality".

"The most effective electromagnetic field for repair of trauma was square wave with a rapid rate of change (dB/dt) which saw cell growth increased up to 4.0 times."

They further noted that "slowly varying (millisecond pulse, sine wave) or non varying DC (CW lasers, magnets) had little to no effect."

Final Recommendation: "One may use square wave EM fields with rapid rate of change for":

a. repairing traumatized tissues
b. moderating some neurodegenerative diseases
c. developing tissues for transplantation

*the first study to clarify technologies and efficacy parameters for tissue growth and restoration

For brevity we reduced the 33 page technical paper to the above summary which we feel represents the essence of that communication. For those who wish to review the molecular and genetic portion of the report click on the following:"

Advanced Topics: Zero Point Energy


I am often asked about the "new" physics and avoid talking about it because much of what is said by new age enthusiasts is pure nonsense. However, Zpower Corporation has provided a good compiliation of articles from science journals that are accessible to someone who is not a practicing physicist. See "Zero Point Energy." ZPE links the basic concepts of inertia, gravity, energy, electromagnetic fields, and scalar technology. Some of the effects of electromagnetic instruments and devices that act at a distance like the Advanced BioPhoton Analyzer can only be explained starting with an understanding of zero point energy.

I am working with Dale Fawcett to start a mentoring program for a limited number of people and this is the first of a series of notes that will point them in the right direction.

As Zpower Corporation points out:

Physicists recognize that we are immersed in an energetic field. The existence of the zero point electromagnetic energy was discovered in 1958 by the Dutch physicist M. J. Sparnaay. Mr Sparnaay continued the experiments carried out by Hendrick B. G. Casimir in 1948 which showed the existence of a force between two uncharged plates which arose from electromagnetic energy surrounding the plates in a vacuum.

Mr Sparnaay discovered that the forces acting on the plates arose from not only thermal energy (heat) but also from another type of radiation now known as classical electromagnetic zero point energy. Mr Sparnaay determined that not only did the zero point electromagnetic energy exist in a vacuum but also that it persisted even at a temperature of absolute zero. This term Zero Point Energy (ZPE) has been based on the concept that even if matter were cooled down to absolute zero (minus 273oC), in terms of its temperature, this energy field still remains.

Because it exists in a vacuum, ZPE is homogeneous (uniform) and isotropic (identical in all directions) as well as ubiquitous (exists everywhere). In addition, the intensity of the energy at any frequency is proportional to the cube of that frequency. Consequently, the intensity of the energy field increases without limit as the frequency increases resulting in an infinite energy density for the radiation spectrum. With the introduction of the ZPE into the classical electron theory, a vacuum at a temperature of absolute zero is no longer considered empty of all electromagnetic fields. Instead, the vacuum is now considered as filled with randomly fluctuating fields having the ZPE spectrum.

The special characteristics of ZPE are that it has a virtually infinite energy density and that it is ubiquitous (even present in outer space), which make it very desirable as an energy source. However, because high energy densities exist at very high frequencies, and because conventional methods are only able to convert or extract energy effectively or efficiently at lower frequencies, effectively tapping this energy source has been unavailable using conventional techniques. Consequently, ZPE which may be used to provide for society's demanding energy needs has remained unharnessed.

Flu Alert:Latest Update

I have now picked up initial cases of a new flu on the east coast (Massachusetts and Connecticut) and the west coast (Los Angeles). There are several viral strains carried by multiple parasites infected with candida, which is typical of a flu. The virus is not responsive to Oscillicoccinum in initial phases and become responsive in later phases. One of the viruses is responsive in the initial phases to Dolisos Dolivaxil but not the others. Aches and pains are responsive to Gelsemium 30C.

Symptoms start off as nasal congestion and running nose, progressing to gastrointestinal distress, followed by aches and pains in parts of the body where the viruses take hold. Running the frequencies below will eliminate most symptoms. You may need to run them a couple of times initially and then daily if symptoms persist.

If you followed my previous recommendations, you already have taken a course of Delisos Dolivaxil and the infection may be minor. I wouldn't count on your flu shot to protect you from all the different viral strains and recommend Dolivaxil even if you have a flu shot.

The parasites and candida will depress your immune system. Make sure you are taking Transfer Factor Plus. The latest version increases immune function by 4-6 times and it is the first dietary supplement ever approved for use in Russian clinics and hospitals. Dr. Kisielevsky of the Russian Academy of Medical Sciences noted, "The 4Life sample [Transfer Factor Advanced Formula] activated NK (natural killer) cell activity more than the Interleukin-2 (IL2) drug we used as the standard." Call Dale Fawcett at (360) 598-6585 to order some.

This year I have started to use scalar octaves as they cut the time needed to eliminate pathogens by 66%. Here are the initial frequencies. More may be added as the flu epidemic unfolds. You can run this program in an F160 or F155. For the FSCAN2, use orginal frequencies in the comments with a wobble of 15 for frequencies above 10000hz and a wobble of 4 for frequencies below 10000hz.

Placebo effect


As someone with a Ph.D. in Biometrics, and an M.S. in Statistics from Stanford University, I am appalled at what we have done to the mindset of physicians when we told them than many of their drugs were no better than the placebo effect.

They should have interpreted this to mean that their drugs are often worthless and that the placebo effect, which can stimulate powerful drug generation in the human body, is much better than drugs for many purposes.

They, of course, often twisted this in their minds to mean that their drugs were good and the placebo effect was worthless.

Anything that stimulates a placebo effect should be used extensively, as it often gets the job done without the negative side effects of drugs, and you completely avoid medication error, the fourth leading cause of death in the U.S.

At the Stanford Medical School when I was studying biostatistics there, we had every patient in the hospital on a clinical trial protocol. That made all results better because the placebo effect was helping to cure the patients in every case. This effect is a combination of improved immune system function due to positive attitude (now proved to be true in the medical literature), better care of the patient because care providers paid attention to the clinical protocol, and the powerful chemicals that the human body can internally generate that do the job without the negative side effects of synthetic drugs or medication errors caused by drug interaction, inappropriate dose, or simply giving the medication to the wrong patient (something that kills thousands of patients every year in our hospitals).

The placebo effect is always the best drug alternative available and physicians should always try to generate it to help them out when treating a patient. That is what we did at Stanford for every patient in the hospital.

WHO calls flu pandemic summit


Vaccine makers, governments to discuss threat of outbreak
The Associated Press
Updated: 12:30 a.m. ET Nov. 1, 2004


WASHINGTON - The World Health Organization has called an unprecedented summit meeting of flu vaccine makers and nations to expand plans for dealing with the growing threat of a flu pandemic.


Sixteen vaccine companies and health officials from the United States and other large countries already have agreed to attend the summit next week in Geneva, Switzerland, on Nov. 11, said Klaus Stohr, influenza chief of the United Nations’ health agency.

With increasing signs that bird flu is becoming established in Asia and several worrisome human cases that can’t be linked directly to exposure to infected poultry, it’s only a matter of time until such a virus adapts itself to spread more easily from person to person and cause a severe worldwide outbreak, he said.

“We believe that we are closer to the next pandemic than we ever were,” Stohr said Sunday in an interview before a speech at an American Society for Microbiology meeting in Washington, D.C.

The world’s total capacity for flu vaccine now is only 300 million doses, and it would take at least six months to develop a new vaccine to fight a pandemic. The WHO wants to get “all issues on the table,” monetary and scientific, that prevent getting more vaccine more quickly, he said.
“If we continue as we are now, there will be no vaccine available, let alone antivirals, when the next pandemic starts,” Stohr said. “We have a window of opportunity now to prepare ourselves.”

Pandemic could threaten millions. Flu kills about 36,000 people in the United States and a million worldwide each year by conservative estimates, Stohr said. But tens of millions die in a pandemic, which occurs every 20 to 30 years, when a flu strain changes so dramatically that people have little immunity from previous flu bouts.

There were three pandemics in the 20th century; all spread worldwide within a year of being detected.

The worst was the Spanish flu in 1918-19, when as many as 50 million people worldwide were thought to have died, nearly half of them young, healthy adults. More than 500,000 died in the United States.

The 1957-58 Asian flu caused about 70,000 deaths in the United States, followed by the 1968-69 Hong Kong flu, which caused about 34,000 U.S. deaths.

Cellphone Hazards


Industry urges more research after study links cell-phone use, tumors
RCR Wireless News, 18 Oct 2004, page 3.
By Jeffrey Silva

"This is what we were afraid of, that the latency would be a ticking time bomb."

WASHINTON--The wirless industry last week dismissed a new study it helped fund that found long-term mobile-phone use can increase the risk of a benign tumor know as acoustic neuroma, research that comes as wireless health litigation shows signs of being resuscitated in the courts.

The study, coordinated by the World Health Organizaiton as part of the 13-nation Interphone research program, urged caution in interpreting the finding of increased risk of acoustic neuroma on the side of th ehead where the handset is placed for individuals with 10 or more years of cell-phone use.


Jury awards $2M to family of teen killed by drive using cell phone
RCR Wireless News, 18 Oct 2004, page 14.
By Jeffrey Silva

WASHINGTON--A Virginia jury awarded $2 million to the family of a teenage girl killed after being struck by a car driven by a lawyer talking on her cell phone, capping another lawsuit at a time when the wireless industry, federal regulators and state legislatures struggle to convince the public that talking and driving don't mix.

The verdict was delivered earlier this month in Loudoun County Circuit Court, located just outside of the nation's capital. Jan Wgner, 33, a lawyer at the time with Cooley Godward L.L.P., hit and killed 15-year old Young-ki Yoon with her Mercedes the night of March 8, 2000.

According to news reports and lawyers involved in the case, Wagner did not stop and continued on until she reached her home. Wagner reportedly stated she thought she hit a deer.
