Can the fda approve genetically modified foods (gmo) for human consumption?

Can the fda approve genetically modified foods (gmo) for human consumption?

YES but...: GMO foods are approved by the FDA before being sold for human consumption. See http://www.fda.gov/food/foodscienceresearch/biotechnology/ucm346030.htm However, I feel the FDA has been derelict in its duty to protect consumers by ignoring evidence that GMO foods may be harmful. Many high-ranking FDA officials have worked for Monsanto- see http://tinyurl.com/ao96zvp and http://tinyurl.com/pkh43g3 ...Read more

Stage4Cancer(started in breast mid-late 50s female)do u think "Biotech nutritions-Pure Graviola 1300mg"gelatin free dietary supplement would help her?

Stage4Cancer(started in breast mid-late 50s female)do u think "Biotech nutritions-Pure Graviola 1300mg"gelatin free dietary supplement would help her?

Probably not: Stage 4 breast cancer requires a lot more than just a dietary supplement. Its very important that she follow her oncologists recommendations. If she wants to to try a nutritional adjunct, there are total immersion programs for cancer. Some examples are Dr Lorraine Day's 10 Step Program for Cancer Treatment and Eden Valley Institute of Wellness. These are both great adjunctw. Best wishes! ...Read more

Are there any medications, vitamins, foods, or practices (e.g., exercise, meditation) shown to decrease SHBG levels?

Are there any medications, vitamins, foods, or practices (e.g., exercise, meditation) shown to decrease SHBG levels?

Some say.....: This is an area w/ adherents and skeptics. The positive things I've heard are related to fish oil - but even they warn about too much. Goldilocks lives! Too much is bad - too little is bad - you need to finf "Just right"! I've always liked moderation, so not a problem.

Tsh is .08 (lab reference rrange .27 - 4.20)  ft4 is .78 (lab reference range .93 - 1.7)  current treatment armour 75 mg daily.  Do i need to see dr?

Yes!!!: Tsh is suppressed due to too much thyroid from your armour dose which contains a fixed ratio of T4 to t3 (liothyronine). I'm curious as to your free T3 (liothyronine) (ft3 (liothyronine)) value since your ft4 is low, too. Ft3 (liothyronine) is considered active hormone. However, by dropping your armour dose, both T4 & T3 (liothyronine) doses will drop in accordance, too. Chat w/your doc about branded levothyroxine (which brand isn't important as long as you stick w/one). ...Read more

How come the fda has not approved drugs like mms, vitamin b17 or dca for cancer?

How come the fda has not approved drugs like mms, vitamin b17 or dca for cancer?

Wishful thinking: Jg, all of us -- myself included -- want to believe disinformation campaigns offering false hope. Yes, real medicine has problems. But think -- no conspiracy could be this vast. Real science is the most cutthroat of all human activities. If mms (industrial-strength bleach to drink), "vitamin b17" (usually amygdalin) or dichloroacetate worked, a real scientist would prove it & win the nobel prize. ...Read more

What are probiotics and used for? What lowest amt taken daily recommended? Any brand rec at rx? Allergic to dairy egg peanut soy, gluten sensitivity.

Probiotics: probiotics are not yet studied well enough to recommend routine usage. Except for particular circumstances, such as infection with C. Difficile, the studies that have been done have not shown any benefit in healthy individuals. I would not recommend them yet unless you have been advised by your physician that you should give them a try. Good luck. ...Read more

Fasting Plasma Glucose test reports HB A1c [HPLC] as 5.80% (5.7-6.4) and says "per-diabatic". What are some diet and lifestyle recommendations?

Low carb/grain diet: cut our grains/limit starches and increase good fats (olive oil, avocado, nuts). have good animal based protein intake (including organic eggs and fish).

Hi...can using hair products containing fruit extracts as well as the alochols used in hair products cause a false positive for etg alcohol tests?

Unless U drink UR: shampoo, you should not test positive for an alcohol test. That's when you're drinking alcoholic beverages, not using shampoo. So you are safe! Fruit extracts also don't cause a positive alcohol blood test too. Thank goodness! Or we'd have a huge public health crisis on our hands with personal care products. Safe to continue using your fruit extract shampoos. ...Read more

Wheat allergy & mostly (not 100%) gluten free diet. Still has gastro issues. Doc testing for Celiac. W/ mostly gluten-free diet will test b accurate?

?which test ?: Testing for celiac varies. There are blood tests, which can show positive with small amounts of gluten intake. (1/10 of a slice of bread)The most dramatic and accepted confirmatory test for celiac disease is a small intestine biopsy. The biopsy test would be most reliable when someone has had a gluten challenge. ...Read more
