Vitamin D RDA Too Low, by Ten Fold

Image
March 26, 2015 A calculation error may have skewed the vitamin D recommendations by the National Academy of Sciences (NAS),  Institute of Medicine (IOM). They are far too low, by a factor of ten, say researchers at UC San Diego and Creighton University. Researchers submitted a letter of challenge, published in the journal Nutrients,   which confirmed a calculation error that was also noted by other investigators using a data set from a different population. Dr. Cedric F. Garland, Dr.P.H., adjunct professor at UC San Diego’s Department of Family Medicine and Public Health said his group confirmed findings published by Dr. Paul Veugelers from the University of Alberta School of Public Health, which were reported last October in the same journal. “Both these studies suggest that the IOM underestimated the requirement substantially,” said Garland. “The error has broad implications for public health regarding disease prevention and achieving the stated goal of ensuring that the whole popula

Thyme: An an herb with multiple beneficial uses!

March is traditionally noted as Women's Health Month.  Generally NHN often encourages you to uses thermography and ultrasound for best breast cancer screening because of the risk of developing cancer from mammogram.

More Vaccine Insanity, Hypo-crazy

The goal is to get these organizations to call an end to any exemptions for vaccines.  Forced medication against your will, denying your right of informed consent while millions are funneled to Big PhRMA: Sounds as if your government is working against you. * Fundamental Right to Decline Vaccines is in Jeopardy in Many States! * *Join Washington, Oregon and Maryland in successfully defending **the right to make informed, voluntary decisions about vaccinations.*  Legislative committees all across the country are considering bills to restrict the legal right to make voluntary choices about vaccinations but you can stop them. *Whether you advocate for or against the use of vaccines, NHFA urges you to stand up *for your right to be in charge of your family's health care, including making informed, volunta

More on the negative impact of Electronic Health Records

I appreciate Dr. Tenpenny's words on the behalf of health.  I have held this out for years as well and have been encouraging people to get a clear understanding of this issue.   by Dr Sherri Tenpenny, DO, AOBNMM, ABIHM In 2011, the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) began a program to entice doctors and hospitals to incorporate the use of Electronic Health Records (EHR). The carrot? The promise of convenience, coordinated care, fewer medical errors, more efficient office visits, faster billing, improved access to medical records. Oh yeah, and they were told, “If you want to get paid, you must convert and bill electronically.” The EHR programs were costly. The set up and implementation fees, which could be   $30,000 or more ,   were required for each physician   in a practice. Therefore, the government offered   two incentive programs   to encourage participation. The Medicare EHR Incentive Program offered to pay up to $44,000 over 5 years to cover the cost to implem
