Report suggests more US businesses offering unregulated, possibly harmful stem cell 'treatments'

Researchers at the University of California and the University of Minnesota identified 351 U.S. companies marketing unapproved stem cell procedures at 570 individual clinics. Procedures include interventions for orthopedic injuries, neurological disorders, cardiac diseases, immunological conditions, pulmonary disorders, injured spinal cords, and cosmetic indications, according to a news release on the findings, which were published Thursday in the journal Cell Stem Cell.

The study authors, bioethicist Leigh Turner and stem cell researcher Paul Knoepfler, wrote in their report that it was unclear whether federal authorities, like the FDA, and state medical boards have underestimated the scope of the issue or whether they are taking minimal action despite their awareness. How Psychedelic Drugs Could Help Treat Addiction. Psychedelic drugs have been flirting with mainstream respectability lately, mainly thanks to scientific studies that have used them as tools to do things like illuminate the workings of the brain and treat depression.

How Psychedelic Drugs Could Help Treat Addiction

Another step toward mainstream medical acceptance of formerly “out-there” substances such as psilocybin, LSD, and MDMA, may involve turning them against other drugs. Across the US and UK, new clinical trials are using psychedelics in an attempt to treat addiction to everything from controlled substances including cocaine to alcohol and cigarettes. Even though it’s still not clear exactly how these drugs work in the brain, researchers think that the psychedelic experience itself could help people change their perspective, and their behavior, when it comes to drug addiction.

A Huge Study Found Less than Half of Psychology Findings Were Reproducible. Scientists love a good study of studies, but a new paper in Science takes this investigative thoroughness to a particularly high level: It features 270 researchers attempting to replicate a whopping 100 experiments from previously published psychology studies.

A Huge Study Found Less than Half of Psychology Findings Were Reproducible

In many cases: no. Why Two Decades of Brain Research Could Be Seriously Flawed. It’s often said, a bit hyperbolically perhaps, that the human brain is the most complex structure in the known universe.

Why Two Decades of Brain Research Could Be Seriously Flawed

For thousands of years, we’ve wanted to peep inside and see what it’s doing—through trepanation, through CT scans, or through a technique that’s been in favour over the last two decades or so: functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) which measures blood flow (and, indirectly, activity) inside the brain. fMRI is an amazing tool that’s spawned a whole new field of research, not to mention an endless series of studies on how the brain works. Arepas ~ Venezuelan Corn Flour Flatbreads. All of us, at one time or another, have had food made from ground corn, be it cornbread, corn tortillas, tortilla chips, tamales or polenta.

Arepas ~ Venezuelan Corn Flour Flatbreads

In my pantry there is a new kid on the block called pre-cooked white maize meal or “harina de maiz blanco precocida”, which is what I used to make my arepas. The first time I made them, it was a totally new tasting experience for me. Nothing like cornbread or corn tortillas. Arepas taste like corn on the cob, ground up and fried in patties. Crispy on the outside, soft and fresh corn flavored on the inside. Fuck-yeah-fitness: muffintop-less: Now by no... - Healthy Minds;Fit Bodies. Buckwheat for your health.

Curious as I am to this and always fine tuning my own recipe, I embarked on a trial and error series of several recipes that I had drafted together. I gathered my research from recipes I had been studying that used ingredients I hadn't tried in gluten free bread baking. But after seeing such great and successful results I had to try these recipes out for myself. The recipe I have settled with (for now) is adapted from Fork and Beans Gluten-Free Vegan Bread recipe.

I followed the recipe near true to form with the change of flour blend and binders. So without further delay, here is my new and improved gluten free bread recipe.

THE CURE FOR CANCER - WE SHOULD ALL KNOW THIS. The virus targets cancer cells, but does not harm normal cells, researchers said. Cancer Diseases WASHINGTON -- A common virus that is harmless to people can destroy cancerous cells in the body and might be developed into a new cancer therapy, US researchers said. The virus, called adeno-associated virus type 2, or AAV-2, infects an estimated 80 percent of the population. "Our results suggest that adeno-associated virus type 2, which infects the majority of the population but has no known ill effects, kills multiple types of cancer cells yet has no effect on healthy cells," said Craig Meyers, a professor of microbiology and immunology at the Penn State College of Medicine in Pennsylvania.

Acid-forming foods: it definitely sounds alarming, and readers of Loren Cordain’s original book, The Paleo Diet, might remember the importance of an acid-base balance as something connected to avoiding modern illness. The basic idea is that the human body is designed to function at a certain balance between acidic and non-acidic (also called basic or alkaline) foods, and that upsetting this balance is a major contributor to chronic disease. There’s even a special Alkaline Diet based exclusively on avoiding “acid-producing” Western foods and prioritizing “alkaline” foods like fruits and vegetables.
