HOW TO FIGHT CANCER AND WIN
BLACK-LISTED CANCER TREATMENT COULD SAVE YOUR LIFE!
The key to stopping many cancers has been around for over 30 years. Yet it has been banned by the very agency designed to protect your health-the FDA. A German research scientist discovered a natural formula that could prevent and even cure cancer. Her findings, which were barred from the medical journals, are now finally available in an updated English translation.

Standards Now Define Organic Food, National Rules to Help Shoppers Take Effect October 21st
For shoppers confused by food labels ranging from "natural" to "hormone-free" to "produced by organic methods," the new Federal standards that control how organic food is produced provide a clear definition of what organic means. Now consumers have government-backed assurance complete with verification audits and a $10,000 fine for intentional misrepresentation.
Alternative Therapies Gain Respect From Institutions
Thirty years ago no one would have predicted that major medical institutions in this country would devote time and money to investigate treatments from non-Western cultures. Yet in 2002 the National Institutes of Health are devoting $100 million a year to research complementary and alternative therapies. And individuals are spending as much on complementary and alternative treatments as they are on their regular doctors.

COLUMNS FROM THE EXPERTS
Dr. Galland's Integrated
Iron is unique among essential minerals, because there is no mechanism for its excretion once absorbed into the body. In "Dangers of Iron Supplements" Dr. Galland reports that excess dietary iron has been implicated by some scientists as a cause of cancer and heart disease, and that it also increases the risk of bacterial infection. He states that "No one should ever take iron supplements unless iron deficiency is present with the possible exception of pregnant women."
