What You Don't Know About Salt CAN Hurt You
by Erin Ter Beest
March 10, 2014
CDC studies suggest that a lower rate of salt consumption might actually be harmful. People who consume the least amount of salt were actually found to have the highest rates of cardiovascular disease.
The most commonly known additive found in salt is iodine, which has been added to salt for almost a century in order to help prevent thyroid disease. While iodine is important to thyroid health, the iodine added to salt is not a form that is very absorbable by the body and therefore, is largely wasted. When iodine is added to salt, it is necessary for manufacturers to also add in sugar, usually in the form of corn syrup (*GMO alert*). Iodine, in the form of potassium iodide, is unstable when combined with sodium. By adding sugar to the salt/iodine combination, the manufacturer is able to prevent oxidation and keep the iodine stable. The sugar also prevents discoloration that may make salt appear unpalatable. When looking for sugar on the nutrition label for salt, look for the word "dextrose."

Expectant Mothers Show Interest in Prenatal Chiropractic Care
by Bianca Castro
July 16, 2015
According to the American Pregnancy Association, 50 to 70 percent of pregnant women experience back pain. Mother-to-be Colleen Hartley of Frisco knew back pain was a possibility, but she said she didn't expect the pain she felt during week 29.
"It was pretty bad. I could not even walk my dog around the block without walking extra slow and it was pretty painful," said Hartley. When she talked to her obstetrician about the pain, the doctor recommended prenatal chiropractic care, an alternative form of medical care gaining popularity among pregnant women.

REGION: Local parents increasingly skip children's immunizations
by Kevin Crowe and Roxanna Popescu
August 18, 2011
A growing number of California parents decided to skip some or all immunizations for their kindergartners in 2010 by signing personal-belief waivers.
Dana Tankell, a chiropractor in San Diego who has never vaccinated either of her school-aged daughters, was relieved to learn that more parents are opting out. Wooten said she is not surprised that the number of personal exemptions is growing and noted that autism isn't the driving factor anymore. Instead, parents are weighing fears of allergies and other side effects associated with vaccines, placing more trust in holistic medicine, and spacing out shots.

News With Views

October 13, 2009
With the U.S. Food and Drug Administration to begin nationwide delivery of swine flu vaccine to 90,000 locations, attorney James Turner filed a complaint in federal court in the District of Columbia for a Temporary Restraining Order.
The suit challenges the Sept. 15 licensing of four swine flu vaccines, alleging that the FDA violated the law in its hurried approval by failing to determine the safety and efficacy of the vaccines as required by law since 1964. Turner told NewsWithViews that none of the procedures that should have been done, and that make up a formal administrative record, had been done.

A new study of back pain treatments, co-ordinated by researchers at the University of York, has found that spinal manipulation, in the form of chiropractic, osteopathy, or manipulative physiotherapy, followed by a programme of exercise, provides significa
The study, backed by the Medical Research Council (MRC) and co-ordinated by the Trials Unit in the University's Department of Health Sciences, is the biggest of its type ever mounted in the United Kingdom. It involved more than 1,300 patients in 140 GP practices across the UK.

BABY GOT BACK: So, time for a spinal adjustment right after birth
by Tory Shepherd
July 20, 2012
Chiropractic care is an alternative medicine based on the belief that "subluxations" in the spine cause a range of ailments, which can be treated by manipulating the spine.
"Immediately after birth, Chirochild practitioners are qualified to assess the nerves, muscles and joints of all babies. After living in a cramped uterus, and the trauma of vaginal and caesarean deliveries, newborn checks are sought by more and more people." Sydney's Family First Chiropractic even believes babies can benefit before they are born, by ensuring mothers are free from subluxations.
Man-Made Drought: A Guide To California's Water Wars
by Rep. Devin Nunes
June 12, 2015
For decades, extreme environmentalists have tried to remove 1.3 million acres of California farmland from production by depriving farmers of water.
From Merced all the way down to Bakersfield, and on the entire west side of the Valley as well as part of the east side, productive agriculture would end and the land would return to some ideal state of nature. I was stunned by the vicious audacity of their goal - and I quickly learned how dedicated they were to realizing it. Much of the media and many politicians blame the San Joaquin Valley's water shortage on drought, but that is merely an aggravating factor. From my experience representing California's agricultural heartland, I know that our water crisis is not an unfortunate natural occurrence; it is the intended result of a long-term campaign waged by radical environmentalists who resorted to political pressure as well as profuse lawsuits.
