National advocacy organizations Food & Water Watch and Water Defense are calling on California Governor Jerry Brown to protect Americans who consume California produce by ending the practice of using toxic oil field wastewater for irrigation.
Earlier this month, the Los Angeles Times revealed that testing by Water Defense had found toxic industrial chemicals present in the recycled oil field wastewater used to irrigate crops in California’s Central Valley.
Treating Pain: In a Revolutionary Way That Works
Ritter Laser Therapy
by Sara Pentz
August 24, 2007
Newport Beach-based Dr. Melissa Ritter, D.C., is using a new type of laser beam to treat the pain therapeutically that so many of us live with every day.
Amazingly, her success rate treating patients with moderate to severe arthritic pain has been up to 90%. And, it lasts! She uses a new technology that combines a synchronized, high-powered, dual wavelength infrared laser in a single beam aimed directly at the origin of the pain, reducing and often completely eliminating the pain.
Infantile colic could be the cause of a baby's crying
by Jessie Moniz
April 12, 2011
There are some babies who are as good as gold and spend all day cooing and smiling at people, and then there are those others the ones that cry from day one, for months on end.
Infantile colic is defined as babies under three months old crying for more than three hours a day. Doctors are still out on the cause of colic. Some people attribute it to gas, undeveloped intestines, a food allergy or just general disposition. Some researchers are now looking at the possibility that the baby's back and spine may be part of the problem.
Autism rates in California public schools jumped 7 percent in 2016
by Phillip Reese
August 29, 2017
More than 97,000 California public school students have been diagnosed as autistic, a number that has risen seven-fold since 2001, according to the latest special education data from the California Department of Education.
The figure represent a jump of about 6,500, or 7 percent, from 2014-15 to 2015-16. The increase was especially sharp among kindergartners, where autism cases grew by 17 percent last year. More than one of every 65 kindergartners in California public schools is classified as autistic. Since 2006, the number of autistic students statewide has risen by between 5,000 and 7,000 every year, state figures show.

Singapore Chiropractor, Aras Chiropractic, Provides Natural Solutions for Back Pain
July 2, 2013
Aras Chiropractic and Dr. Aras Ignatavicius D. C., are pleased to announce that locals can obtain back pain relief by utilizing the techniques and methods offered by the Singapore chiropractor under the guidelines of chiropractic medicine.
The methods are non-invasive and are all-natural. No pharmaceuticals are suggested or prescribed to patients pursuing this course of therapy. A therapeutic plan may include a number of techniques, some applied by the doctor and some that are the responsibility of the patient. The initial step when there is a subluxation is to provide a manual or mechanical adjustment to the spinal column. This allows the discs to move back into the optimum position. Pain is relieved and the body is able to begin a self healing process.
New Way To Diagnose Sciatica May Point To A Different Cause
by Cedars-Sinai Medical Center
February 2, 2005
Researchers have found that new nerve imaging technology called Magnetic Resonance neurography was effective to reveal that a pinched-nerve in the pelvis called piriformis syndrome caused sciatic leg pain in the majority of patients who had failed diagnos
For the last 70 years, a damaged disc in the lower back has been widely accepted as the most common cause of sciatica - a condition where the sciatic nerve is pinched, causing pain to radiate down the leg. As a result, treatment for sciatica is based on diagnosis of a damaged disc, despite the fact that nerves cannot be viewed with routine imaging tests. Consequently, over one million patients each year undergo magnetic resonance imaging scans (MRI) for sciatica and many are told there is no obvious cause for their pain.
World's first artificial cow's milk to hit the market next year
by Bec Crew
November 11, 2014
Bioengineers in the US are developing the world's first artificial cow's milk made from genetically engineered yeast in an effort to put a more environmentally sustainable option on the market.
Earlier this year, a synthetic dairy start-up called Muufri (pronounced "Moo-free") was founded by two bioengineers in California - Perumal Gandhi and Ryan Pandya. They're working on perfecting an artificial cow's milk made from a special variety of yeast that has been genetically engineered to produce milk proteins.
New Studies Link Cell Phone Radiation with Cancer
by Charles Schmidt
April 3, 2018
Researchers call for greater caution, but skeptics say the evidence from rat studies is not convincing
Does cell phone radiation cause cancer? New studies show a correlation in lab rats, but the evidence may not resolve ongoing debates over causality or whether any effects arise in people. The ionizing radiation given off by sources such as x-ray machines and the sun boosts cancer risk by shredding molecules in the body. But the non-ionizing radio-frequency (RF) radiation that cell phones and other wireless devices emit has just one known biological effect: an ability to heat tissue by exciting its molecules.
Five Cutting-Edge Cancer Treatments
June 7, 2017
Memorial Sloan Kettering scientists and doctors firmly believe we're on the cusp of a brighter era in cancer care and research. Although the history of attempts to understand and control cancer is littered with disappointments...
In addition to drugs such as ipilimumab and nivolumab, MSK researchers are developing another immunotherapy strategy in which a patient's own T cells are manipulated to more readily attack cancer cells. In this treatment, called chimeric antigen receptor therapy, or CAR therapy, T cells are collected from a patient's blood, genetically engineered to recognize certain proteins on cancer cells, and infused back into the patient's bloodstream.
