A new Article Challenging Old Paradigms: Journalist Discovers the Problems with HIV Science

For a detailed, referenced and easy to read summary of what's wrong with the HIV/AIDS hypothesis, check out the review copies of two new articles by investigative journalist Janine Roberts.

Roberts' chronicles her journey of discovery in 'HIV Gate', a forty page report that examines and dissects original claims about the virus, and goes on to tackle some of the questions that information raises in 'AIDS Gate' another engaging and well-referenced work.

MENTAL ACUITY: Eat more vegetables to stay sharp

Most of us worry that we might lose some of our mental sharpness as we get older. But instead of resorting to crossword puzzles, sudoku challenges and reading the family encyclopedia, we could instead eat lots of vegetables every day. - The over-65s who eat up to three servings of vegetables a day reduce the decline in their cognitive abilities by up to 40 per cent compared with those who eat almost no vegetables. - The protective effect didn’t seem to get much better than that, even among those who ate more than four servings of vegetables a day.

Bread and the risk of Kidney cancer

A study of more than 2,300 Italians has shown that high bread consumption significantly raises the risk of renal cell carcinoma, the most common type of kidney cancer. Pasta and rice may also raise the risk, but eating vegetables could lower it. The 12-year study examined 767 adults with this kidney cancer and 1534 who did not have the disease. The researchers asked participants to fill out food frequency questionnaires, which gauged the average weekly consumption for 78 different food items. There was a significant direct association for bread consumption, and to a lesser extent pasta and rice. A decreased risk was associated with consumption of poultry and all vegetables. The association between grain products and cancer may be due to the high glycemic index of these foods and...


Red meat and breast cancer

The bad news about red meat emerged from a very large and authoritative study of pre-menopausal nurses by researchers at Harvard University medical institutions, published this week in the Archives of Internal Medicine.
