After all, the MD Anderson Cancer Center is at the forefront of new-fangled biological cancer medicines and has been a bastion of support for the rather toxic cancer treatments that have dominated Western medicine for decades. On April 21, 2011 they published a groundbreaking scientific review of their research on their favorite anti-cancer nutrient – curcumin. Times are a changing.

Their fascination with nutrition is born out of the fact that various nutrients seem to possess intelligence – meaning they can actually tell the difference between a healthy cell and a cancer cell. They are actively researching curcumin, tocotrienols, green tea, quercetin, Resveratrol Natural phenol or type of antioxidant found in red grapes, red wine.

In the case of cancer cells, these nutrients help unleash a powerful response designed to kill the cancer.

How could that be? The answer is simple: The increased breast risk in thyroid supplemented women is due to iodine deficiency.

Should Dr. Oz be Silenced?

As Dr. Oz’s popularity with Americans grows—and with it a new openness to integrative medicine—mainstream medicine is alarmed.

Last year, when he was a second-year medical student, Benjamin Mazer took it upon himself to ask both the Medical Society of the State of New York (MSSNY) and the American Medical Association (AMA) to address what he called “medical quackery” on television and in other media. He suggested that they consider regulating the advice of celebrity physicians like Dr. Mehmet Oz—asking, in effect, that they do something to gag him.

Eucalyptus Essential Oil Reduces Spread of Tuberculosis

Research from the University of Illinois’ College of Pharmacy has found that eucalyptus essential oil can be used to stop the spread of tuberculosis from those who are contagious.

The researchers tested essential oil from the Eucalyptus citriodora – also called Corymbia citriodora – with airborne tuberculosis.

The researchers found that a combination of citronellol, linalool and eucalyptol inhibited airborne tuberculosis transmission by more than 90 percent.
