"Keim said that CT scans and blood tests show that the natural treatments are working. He said she is cancer-free."


And there's the question, is it true? Is she really cancer free? If so, then the authorities in the US have to re-evaluate their ideas.

Alternative Medicine: What to Know About the Growing Industry
Wall St. Cheat Sheet
Business is booming if you're in the alternative medicine industry. While it once was a small operation focused on homemade remedies, the practice has changed.
Greg Mee's insight:

What I found most interesting about this article is its remarks on herbs and what's actually in the bottle. Apparently, too often, it isn't what you think you're buying. 

 

There's zero excuse for that and it makes those manufacturers far less ethical than the Pharma companies. While one may not care for their drugs at least one knows what's in the bottle.

Greg Mee's insight:

Another interesting article that throws more fuel on the fire of the argument (standard Vs alternative medicine.)

 

IMO he wildly wrong about vaccinations and a few other things, but maybe I'm missing someting in his definitions.I'll be more accepting when solid science can show real links between vaccines and autism, for example. Or anything supporting homeopathy.

 

His being wrong about a few things (IMO) doesn't automatically make the other side "right," though.

Greg Mee's insight:

I thought this was a pretty interesting article, despite the scaremongering and "corporations are evil" message. Remember that corporations are made up of people who eat this stuff, too. 

 

Eating a diet of mostly processed meats isn't going to be good for you, for reasons that are in addition to any cancer worries. Eat in moderation and you're going to be fine. 

 

Eat the nitrates in 100x the normal doese and you're likely have issues. Eat some bacon with an otherwise decent diet and you'll be fine. 

 

And yes, eating a "more natural diet," like the paleo diet is going to be better for you than eating a highly processed diet. By far.
