The late Jacob Bronowski, in his influential collection of essays Science and Human Values, described “the fundamental and defining ethic” of the scientific enterprise as “the habit of truth”. This certainly should be the case – but the contrary holds where the surest way of promoting false theories is by dressing them up in the garb of science. Read more

The Harmful Use of Science
The "expert committees" that condemned butter and led eventually to the over-prescription of statins were lacking the "habit of truth," says Dr James Le Fanu.

Why the Medical Establishment Hates Homeopathy
The medical establishment hates homeopathy because it's cheap and often useful, says Paul Fassa.
A German physician, Samuel Hahnemann, started homeopathy in the late 1700s to early 1800s. This was a period when mainstream medicine consisted of using bloodsucking leeches, mercury, arsenic, and lead to treat illness. His approach was kinder, gentler, and much more effective.
Homeopathy caught on in other parts of Europe and North America during the mid-19th Century and beyond. John D. Rockefeller reportedly used homeopathy for himself and his family.
But he made sure his fledgling pharmaceutical interests and petroleum monopoly would benefit from the manufacture and prescription of petrochemical based pharmaceuticals along with his merger with IG Farban, the largest international pharmaceutical company of that time. Read more

Blocking Sugar to Block Cancer
Blocking sugar intake can block the risk or progression of cancer, says Elizabeth Renter.
Beating cancer by removing sugar from your diet is not a new concept. As we reported recently, leading biochemist Dr. Otto Wartburg became a vocal advocate of eliminating sugar and starving cancerous tumors of their primary fuel source nearly a century ago. Removing sugar as a preventative step was just as effective, he surmised, as cancer was caused by the body’s nonoxidative breakdown of glucose. Fast-forward to 2013 and a new study has indicated that blocking dietary sugar can reduce tumor development risk and progression of cancer cells. Read more

The Top 9 Herbs for Intimacy
If you need a boost to your sexual desire or performance, you don't have to go to your doctor for a prescription. Jonathan Cho reveals the top nine herbs for intimacy.
Sexual health is often a hush-hush topic, but it remains an important part of mental and physical well-being. While proper nutrition is key for overall health in this area, it’s always nice to know we can get a little boost if we want it. Viagra has been the mainstream drug of choice, but the side effects are many, and the long-term ones still unknown.
There are a lot of foods touted as aphrodisiacs, and it can be hard to separate the substance from the hype. While many foods and supplements can benefit a person’s libido, the effects often only show in the long-term, and only slightly at best. The list below covers the major food substances and supplements that can most potently provide that more immediate “oomph” we’re all sometimes looking for, without the need for a prescription.
