Doctors Health Press Reports on Study: NTP Warns Popular Supplement Ginkgo Biloba May Cause Cancer

Boston, MA (PRWEB) June 17, 2013

Doctors Health Press, a division of Lombardi Publishing Corporation and publisher of various natural health newsletters, books, and reports, including the popular online Doctors Health Press e-Bulletin, is reporting on a new study finding that the popular supplement ginkgo biloba may cause cancer.

As Doctors Health Press e-Bulletin (http://www.doctorshealthpress.com/cancer-articles/ginkgo-biloba-friend-or-foe) notes, ginkgo biloba has held a place of prominence in the world of herbal remedies for most of the past decade. This herb has been touted for its ability to enhance memory and delay the onset of Alzheimer?s symptoms. Ginkgo biloba was found by Western medicine researchers to be high in antioxidants, and it has been shown to protect against oxidative damage in the brain, heart, and eyes. Ginkgo biloba has been prescribed to treat hearing problems, impotence, and macular degeneration, to name just a few conditions.

But as the article ?Ginkgo Biloba: Friend or Foe?? reports, a recent study says the popular herbal supplement may cause cancer. The study was conducted by none other than the National Toxicology Program (NTP) and was addressed in the NTP?s Report on Carcinogens, published on behalf of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services. This report is based on a scientific study and is created to specifically address threats to public health in the form of toxins. These toxins can be classed as agents, substances, mixtures, or exposures, but they all have one thing in common: they potentially put people at an increased risk for getting cancer.

The Doctors Health Press e-Bulletin article states that, back in March, the NTP conducted a study that found that a dietary supplement of ginkgo caused cancer in lab animals. Researchers discovered that ginkgo biloba extract caused cancer in the thyroid glands of male and female rats. It also caused liver cancer in both male and female mice.

As Doctors Health Press e-Bulletin outlines, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) stated it won?t issue an alert based on one study. Critics of the study point out the animals may have been given excessively high doses of ginkgo biloba that are not similar to the dose an average human usually takes. However, experts supporting the NTP camp have countered that the testing would have been rigorous, professional, and of a very high standard.

Doctors Health Press e-Bulletin concludes by pointing out that, while the FDA has already stepped in to ban ginkgo biloba from food and drinks, it is hesitating when it comes to banning the herb from supplements; the FDA is concerned that the extract used for this study could be different from those that you are able to buy in stores and herbal pharmacies. Clearly, more studies are needed to definitively prove whether or not ginkgo biloba is a safe supplement. Until such time, Doctors Health Press e-Bulletin advises readers to consult their doctor before taking any ginkgo biloba supplement.

Healthy Vitamins Explains Why Supplemental Plant Protein is Becoming Increasingly Popular

(PRWEB) July 25, 2014

In a recent interview, Dr T Colin Campbell stated, “The high-protein, high-fat diet that is customarily consumed by the average American promotes inflammatory reaction; there is no question about that. You see a lot of stuff changing in the immune system [with this diet] and other sorts of things that are associated with inflammation that we tend to be familiar with ? a risk factor for heart disease as well. A plant-based diet ? if you will, that means fruits and grains ? that has all the protein we need. As a matter of fact, it’s the ideal level of protein.”

But not all plants?or plant proteins?are alike or the best to use as a protein source. Some plant proteins are made with conventionally raised plants filled with pesticides and other toxins such as GMOs, or they offer incomplete proteins without adequate amino acids.

According to Extraordinary Health Magazine, “Soy protein is a complete protein which, when conventionally grown, has, on average, 10 pesticide residues, according to the USDA Pesticide Data Program. That includes the overlap of three known or probable carcinogens, five suspected hormone disruptors, two neurotoxins, two developmental or reproductive toxins for humans and three honeybee toxins.”

However brown rice protein that is certified organic and Non GMO is nutritionally rich and packed with enzymes. It also boasts four times more arginine, for better nutrient delivery, than other protein powders. Brown rice protein is also rich in glutamine, for muscle growth and immune health.

In addition, Brown rice is supercharged nutritionally when it?s sprouted, activating enzymes which release additional nutrients. Sprouted brown rice has more fiber, three times the amount of lysine (an essential amino acid) and 10 times the amount of gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA), an amino acid that supports healthy kidney function, than regular brown rice.

Gail Bowman is the owner of Healthy Vitamins, an online whole food health food store. Gail said, “Garden of Life’s Raw Protein is a great supplemental solution to the question, ‘Where do I get more clean, healthy plant based protein?’ Raw Protein is a a complete, plant-based protein for everyone, including those on a vegan or vegetarian diet. It is Organic, Non GMO verified, raw, gluten free, dairy free and soy free.

“It also has 13 sprouted seeds, grains and legumes including brown rice. My customers tell me that they love it and they find it easily digestible. What more can you ask for?”

Healthy Vitamins is an online health food store specializing in whole food vitamins. Healthy Vitamins carries all flavors of both Raw Protein and Raw Meal, a complete meal replacement which incorporates Raw Protein.
