Cadmium May Cause Chronic Kidney Disease

By Stephen W. Parcell, ND

In this study they found that Environmental low level of Pb, Hg, Cd exposure in the general population was not strongly associated with CKD. However, Cd exposure was associated with CKD, especially in adults with hypertension or diabetes. This finding suggests that environmental low Cd exposure may be a contributor to the risk of CKD in adults with hypertension or diabetes.

Lower level of vitamin D are associated with death from all causes.

By Stephen W. Parcell, ND

According to a recent study on Japanese individuals lower serum 1,25(OH)2D levels are a potential risk factor for all-cause death, especially cardiovascular and respiratory infection death, in the general Japanese population, and that lower serum 1,25(OH)2D levels greatly increase the risk of respiratory infection death in subjects with kidney dysfunction. Other studies on different population all indicate the same thing.

Mistletoe Injections (Helixor) for Cancer to be Studied at Johns Hopkins

Johns Hopkins has an interesting article about how cancer patients benefit from Mistletoe injections.

The National Cancer Institute has written a very balanced informational article on mistletoe. We do not sell it or import it. Patients but it and we help them understand the literature and guide them with using it. We are waiting to participate in a NIH clinical trial on this currently.
