Orthopedic surgeons call for a study of outcomes under the demonstration program.

Will Human Beings Soon Stop Bathing?
July 8, 2014
The New York Times Magazine recently ran a story about a fascinating new product, a spray called AO+ Refreshing Cosmetic Mist, from a small biotech company AOBiome. The spray contains billions of cultivated Nitrosomonas eutropha.
AOBiome scientists believe these bacteria act as a kind of pro-biotic for the skin. Once applied, they become a built-in cleanser, deodorant, anti-inflammatory, and immune booster by feeding on the ammonia in our sweat. The MIT-trained chemical engineer who invented AO+, David Whitlock, noticed that horses will roll in dirt after the getting sweaty: they are actually collecting the bacteria that transform the ammonia into nitrite and nitric oxide.
One in Five Pregnant Women Take Opioid Painkillers
May 6, 2014
And what doctors are prescribing as an alternative is just as dangerous. Action Alert! We've told you before about the dangers of prescription opioid painkillers: drugs like oxycodone (OxyContin) and hydrocodone (Vicodin) are incredibly addictive...
Alarmingly, a full 20% of pregnant women now use these prescription painkillers, according to the New York Times. What's worse, not all women are being prescribed opioids equally: those with Medicaid, as well as those who live in the south, are being prescribed painkillers during pregnancy at much higher rates: 23% of women on Medicaid, compared to 14% of women with private insurance, are being prescribed opioids.
Pet dogs and cats 'may need chiropractic therapy'
Animal Friends Insurance (UK)
January 14, 2010
Ethical insurance shoppers have been advised on symptoms they should look out for that would indicate a possible need for chiropractic therapy.
Kathleen Inman works with a veterinarian and told the Tennessean that her interventions can do a lot of good and have even allowed a paraplegic canine to walk again. She noted there were a number of signs owners could keep an eye on that may suggest back problems in animals.
More Doctors Confessing To Intentionally Diagnosing Healthy People With Cancer To Make Money
August 26, 2017
More Doctors Confessing To Intentionally Diagnosing Healthy People With Cancer To Make Money: It happens more often than you can imagine, but more doctors are finally getting caught in the act of misrepresenting their oath.
Why shouldn't Doctors lie when the entire cancer industry is one gigantic fabrication from start to finish? Is it any wonder that cancer societies worldwide put a far greater financial initiative on chemotherapy and radiation research than disease prevention techniques? Preventing disease doesn't make money, but treating disease certainly does.
Studies suggest chiropractic care can help dyslexia
September 3, 2008
Studies suggest chiropractic care can help dyslexia, specific exercises appear to "train" the cerebellum to respond normally to information.
There are several case studies that show the benefit of chiropractic care in treating children with dyslexia. The chiropractic approach is based on two models. The first is the vertebral subluxation/hemisphericity, which hypothesized to be a potential consequence of central nervous system dysfunction. The second model is vertebral subluxation/neurologic disorganization. This model is based on a theory that children with dyslexia and learning disabilities have a functional disturbance to the appropriate organization of higher centers of the central nervous system.
Patients seeking pain relief are beginning to see 'the light'
by Sameh Fahmy
July 30, 2004
Ruptured discs in her neck and fibromyalgia left Sandy Butler with pain so severe she was bedridden for a year. Today she's back on her feet and credits a little-known treatment with easing her pain and restoring her independence.
The treatment, called cold laser therapy, or low-level light therapy, directs light energy at tissue to help it heal. It was approved by the federal Food and Drug Administration two years ago for the treatment of carpal tunnel syndrome, and chiropractors are increasingly using it to treat back and neck pain, shoulder and knee injuries and other joint pain.
What science tells us about the safety of genetically modified foods
by John Timmer
October 4, 2013
Many aspects of modern technology make people a bit uneasy, but genetically modified foods may be in a class by themselves. Labs all around the world make genetic modifications of organisms-bacteria, plants, and animals-365 days a year.
And some of the results of that work have been ingested by humans for years, often in the form of life-saving drugs. But genetically modified crops remain controversial around the globe, and while they're commonly used in the US, they have almost no presence in the European market. The worries about GMO foods largely focus on their safety, but much of the debate ignores the extensive studies that have been done to understand both the potential risks and what we've learned about them. In response to this perceived gap in understanding, a group of Italian scientists have now performed a comprehensive review of the scientific literature on GMO crops (we were made aware of the review by Real Clear Science). The results suggest that GMO crops are safe for us, but there are some remaining concerns about their environmental impact that need to be nailed down. In the meantime, the authors suggest that GMOs represent a serious challenge for science communication with the public.
Chicago Bulls: Derrick Rose's back feeling good
by K.C. Johnson
February 22, 2012
For Derrick Rose's back pain to stay away, the routine must remain. Thus, Rose admitted he will continue to visit Stuart Yoss, the Bannockburn-based chiropractor he thanked by name on TV.
Injury update: C.J. Watson missed his second straight game after suffering a mild concussion from his collision with the Nets' Kris Humphries on Saturday. The NBA implemented a new concussion policy in December. To be cleared, a player must remain symptom-free through increasing tests of exertion. Then, a league-hired neurologist must clear the player.
10 Nail Symptoms and What They Mean for Your Health
by Joseph Mercola
November 5, 2016
Nails are often regarded as a purely aesthetic feature, and the $768 million spent annually on nail polish (in the U.S. alone) can attest to that.1 Yet, your nails are far more than a platform for bright colors and nail art.
The shape, texture, and color of your natural nails act as a window into your body, and while some nail symptoms are harmless, others can be indicative of chronic diseases, including cancer. As noted by the American Academy of Dermatology (AAD): "Nails often reflect our general state of health. Changes in the nail, such as discoloration or thickening, can signal health problems including liver and kidney diseases, heart and lung conditions, anemia, and diabetes."
