Health Supreme NewsGrabs - 29 July 2006

I am experimenting with a new type of post on this site.

Every day, I come across a number of interesting news items and stories related to the topics of this site but I cannot report on them all in detail. This is a new kind of post that brings you the links to stories I find interesting, grabbing them as I go. Some of them are only links, others come with a short comment...

Here is the second installment of the - hopefully to be regular - NewsGrabs, your alternative health news service.

Honey helps problem wounds
A household remedy millennia old is being reinstated: honey helps the treatment of some wounds better than the most modern antibiotics.

A broad coalition of 35 citizen organizations today urged House members to approve a whistleblower bill passed last month by the Senate in response to a Supreme Court decision. The decision is from the case Garcetti v. Ceballos, which canceled First Amendment rights for government workers when carrying out their job duties.

Judge orders stay of teen cancer patient's treatment order
A "temporary stay" on an order to report for forced cancer treatment - chemotherapy. What ever happened to freedom of choice?

EU guilty of concealing GMO documents
The European Commission has been ruled guilty of "maladministration" after hiding documents from Friends of the Earth Europe that reveal scientific concerns about the safety of genetically modified (GM) foods.

Sulfuryl Fluoride used as fumigant for foods
Not only is toxic fluoride put in the water supply of many communities, it is also used in teflon cooking ware, pesticides, medicines, and now as a fumigant for foods. Do we really need to poison ourselves this way?
