The role of alternative therapies in cancer treatment

DEAR DR. ROACH: I wonder why you never talk about holistic measures to prevent illnesses, such as cancer. I just read an article by an oncologist who said there are certain anti-cancer supplements that work, including vitamin D, magnolia extract and artichoke extract, all of which have been shown in laboratory studies to kill a variety of cancer cells, including colon, breast and liver cancers, and leukemia. Artichoke extract also contains cynarin, which decreases inflammation. Other compounds that can reduce cancer growth are black cumin seed oil and bee propolis, which is rich in caffeic acid phenethyl ester (CAPE), chrysin ...

You don’t want CEO for president

In 1992, independent candidate Ross Perot chose Admiral James Stockdale, a complete unknown, as his presidential running mate. In his first debate, the VP candidate began by asking two good questions: "Who am I? Why am I here?"

Media trust hits all-time low

Washington Post political reporter Chris Cillizza is one of those self-impressed Watergate babies who thinks everything the media report brings great value to society. His latest article was titled "Trust in the media is at an all-time low. That's a terrible thing for all of us."

I’m going to miss Boehner

I am going to miss John Boehner as speaker of the House. The GOP looks like the fun party with its ring-a-ding leader and his dash of Dean Martin. Boehner even sauntered into his resignation news conference Friday while crooning, "Zip-a-dee-doo-dah, zip-a-dee-ay. My oh my, what a wonderful day." The speaker chose not to cling to power but to walk away without compromising his supporters.

Democracy at grassroots level

American democracy is the gritty history of workaday folks who get fed up with the stuffed suits, get organized, and get moving to stop the thievery. Gutsy, grassroots confrontation is necessary for reclaiming, maintaining, and advancing our democratic values.

Aluminum exposure poses no risk to healthy people

DEAR DR. ROACH: For about 30 years, I have heard I should avoid contact with aluminum for sustained good health. Is there science or proven studies of adverse health effects behind these recommendations? Or is avoiding contact with aluminum in deodorant or cookware an incorrect or unsupported assertion that someone once made and that has taken on momentum, periodically resurfacing in articles and in emails? I am aware that exposure to some heavy metals is bad for us and must be avoided -- for example, lead from paint chips could be eaten by children or pets, or lead dust when sanding ...

California’s new death row

California has a new death row; it's called Virginia. Anti-death penalty advocates, federal judges and defense attorneys have been so successful at blocking capital punishment in California that a San Quentin death row inmate has more to fear from being extradited for a capital murder to another state than seeing his sentence carried out here. There has been no execution in California since a federal judge effectively halted the practice in 2006.

Why Obama Won’t Stay at the Waldorf when in NYC

Although every U.S. president since Herbert Hoover has stayed at the famous luxury Waldorf Astoria Hotel when visiting New York City, President Obama will not be bunking there this week. Along with hundreds of American officials who used to occupy whole floors of the Waldorf during the September meetings of the U.N. General Assembly, Obama will move to a different hotel.

Is testosterone therapy worth the risk for men?

DEAR DR. ROACH: I am a 62-year-old male who gets weekly testosterone injections. My semiannual blood work comes back fine. I have no side effects except that I lose my temper with people easier now. I have a little more energy and sex drive. My doctor believes that since he has me on Arimidex to keep my estrogen level low, testosterone is not harmful to me. I wanted another opinion, since all I hear now is that testosterone supplements can cause increased risk of heart attack and stroke. Does the Arimidex make testosterone safer? -- J.H.
