1940s-215x120

The Historical Significance of 1940s Mandatory Niacin Enrichment by W. Todd Penberthy, PhD (OMNS, Feb, 2017) In a newly published research study, Tissier and colleagues at the Universite ‘ de Strasbourg, France, identified wild hamsters that were eating primarily corn monoculture diets and exhibiting siblicide and maternal infanticide. Cannibalism was one of the theories for the decline of their population. Mother hamsters fed exclusively corn would take their pups, place them together with the stashes of corn they had stored in the cage, and start eating their young. Siblicide was also observed. Only 5 percent of the offspring of the females fed corn survived. The rest were eaten. For the other group fed a varied diet, 80 percent of the… Read More →

IV Vitamin C Protects Against Metabolic Syndrome

IV Vitamin C

(OMNS, Feb 1, 2017) Vitamin C is essential for life in humans, as the capacity to synthesize it has been lost in the course of our evolution. Besides its antioxidant properties and its role in collagen synthesis, vitamin C has been shown to boost the immune system, to markedly lower blood histamine concentrations, and to have antiviral activity. Large epidemiological studies have shown that intake of vitamin C and other antioxidants can protect against hypertension and the symptoms of diabetes mellitus (such as diabetic retinopathy), and can increase high-density lipoprotein (HDL) cholesterol (thought to be protective), and enhance endothelial function. When vitamin C is infused intravenously at doses of 10,000 milligrams or higher, it can reach 100 times the level… Read More →

Vitamin C Quells Insulin Resistance

vitamin-c-insulin

December 29, 2016 (OMNS) Vitamin C supplements may be needed to quell the rising problem of insulin resistance among grade-school aged children.[1] The advice that fruits and vegetables provide sufficient amounts of vitamin C is being questioned in a newly published study. Diabetes is of growing concern and has its roots in early life. Insulin resistance, where living cells don’t adequately utilize insulin to produce cellular energy as they once did, is an early feature of diabetes. Over 2000 children ages 9-10 years underwent blood tests and food intake surveys to determine their metabolic fitness. The strength of the study was that actual blood concentrations of vitamin C were obtained rather than estimations of vitamin C intake from foods. Lower… Read More →

Sugar Industry Fraud

December 15, 2016 Commentary by Ralph Campbell, MD (OMNS, Dec 12, 2016) Fear may be an effective technique for promoting drug sales and gaining votes, but should not displace the calm presentation of a healthful life style factor. For example, recently the “sugar is good; fat is bad” mantra has been exposed to the light of truth.[1] [Sponsor Links: FREE COLLOIDAL SILVER] A recent Medscape report began with: “Highly respected, high profile U.S. medical and public health institutions working to reduce obesity have accepted corporate sponsorships from the nation’s two largest soda companies.” [2] The Centers for Disease Control (CDC), the American Diabetes Association and the Obesity Society lobbied against bills that would reduce soda consumption designed to improve nutrition….

Magnesium Decreases ADHD in Children

adhd-kiddo

December 9, 2016 by Helen Saul Case (OMNS, Nov 23, 2016) Magnesium deficiency is found more frequently in children with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) than in healthy children. In one study of ADHD children, magnesium deficiency was found in 95 percent of those examined (1). Does this warrant magnesium supplementation for hyperactive children? The answer is yes. Supplementation with magnesium appears to be especially helpful for alleviating hyperactivity in children (2). In a group of children supplemented with about 200 milligrams (mg) per day of magnesium for six months, there was “an increase in magnesium contents in hair and a significant decrease of hyperactivity” compared to children in the control group who had not been treated with supplemental magnesium… Read More →

Vitamin C Cures Pneumonia

Sept. 14, 2016 A powerful second opinion for Hillary Clinton, Donald Trump, and everyone by Andrew W. Saul, Editor (OMNS, Sept 12, 2016) Clinical evidence confirms vitamin C’s powerful antiviral/antibiotic effect against pneumonia when used in sufficient quantity. Robert F. Cathcart, MD, successfully treated pneumonia with up to 200,000 milligrams of vitamin C daily. (1,2) One can, to a significant extent, simulate an IV of vitamin C by taking it by mouth very, very often. When I had pneumonia, it took 2,000 mg of vitamin C every six minutes to get me to saturation (bowel tolerance). In three hours, fever was reduced several degrees and coughing virtually stopped. At an oral daily dose of just over 100,000 mg, complete recovery… Read More →
