The Responsibility of Product Quality

CBC recently aired investigations by Marketplace and the Fifth Estate looking at the supplement industry. Several of the companies mentioned in the report have since responded, but the report shed light on legitimate customer concerns.

We must be able to have an alternative to pharmaceutical drugs; public trust has greatly waned for this group too. The alternative must be of the same high quality as used in the pharmaceutical industry, but without the damaging side effects and with GMP quality manufacturing. Testing must become the assurance consumers look for when buying natural food supplements; it is time to raise the standards straight across the board.

Suppliers have a responsibility to their customers, for what is on the label must be what is in the product. Product quality without a company’s ethical value and proper oversight leaves too great a gap for speculation. Management without moral consciousness will resort to all levels in order to sell a product for the greatest possible profit, and that could mean lying about the ingredients of their products. We stand on product quality; next year marks our 30th anniversary and our values remain today as they did then: product quality without compromise.

All our raw materials are purchased based on the purest possible USP pharmaceutical grade, manufactured either in Japan, USA, or Europe. Our products are all licensed by Health Canada and formulated for maximum cellular absorption. Hormonal products are vegetarian, with the exception of our raw tissue gland formulations. All amino acids are free form, and purity must be 99.9% or higher. We encapsulate our formulas in vegetarian capsules and not the cheaper animal gelatin form, because the quality of every component is paramount.

Our glandulars are concentrates (not extracts) and are derived from New Zealand range-grazed bovine. The grasslands are non-fertilized and the animals are not administered feed supplements, hormones or antibiotics. The glands are quick frozen, never exceeding -5C. Their cellular structure is not damaged and is preserved in a biologically active and live state. Source materials are not subjected to organic or aqueous solvents and therefore no chlorohydrocarbon remain as residue in the tissues.

Our skin creams use only natural preservatives for stability purposes, and fragrances are light, fresh, and fleeting, so they neither conflict with expensive perfumes, nor cause sensitivity to those with allergies.

We use the minimal amount of fillers for capsule fullness; either microcrystalline cellulose (vegetable source), stearic acid, flow agent (vegetable source), the capsule shell is cellulose -from vegetarian source, no animal gelatin is used.

It is not fare to group all Nutricutical companies in the same category, each must stand on their own, whenever transparency is an issue it gives good reason for the public to be weary.

We go and beyond at Life Choice®, for not only do we produce our products for the consumer and health care professional, but we also take them personally and stand firmly behind each and every product we manufacture. Consumers have the full legal right to demand quality in the supplements they are taking and if the companies are found to be fraudulent then they should be held accountable, but only after assuring there was no stone unturned and all the facts have been considered.

The Return of Whooping Cough in High Vaccination Areas

The Return of Whooping Cough in High Vaccination Areas

Pertussis (whooping cough) has re-emerged in countries with high vaccination coverage and low mortality.

Although it is listed as one of the top causes of vaccine preventable deaths, reports of a global resurgence originated in countries with low mortality and high vaccination coverage. Priorities are to decrease infant mortality by improving coverage and timeliness of vaccination and implementing pertussis surveillance, but vaccinations don’t seem to be working and this is of great concern.

More recently some countries with sustained high vaccine coverage have experienced increases in pertussis, especially in older children and adults, the reasons for which are complex. The issue may stem from under diagnosis or missed diagnosis and under-reporting, which hinder surveillance, as well as gaps in our knowledge of levels of herd immunity generated by the vaccination programs.

Whooping cough is a relatively new infectious disease afflicting human beings, compared with other infectious diseases, and is undergoing a resurgence despite decades of vaccination.

One study found that the body's response to a pertussis infection was correlated with vaccination status. There was a primary response in unvaccinated children.

How common is whooping cough in a non-vaccinating country?.

In Sweden, general vaccination with a whole cell pertussis vaccine was recommended from 1953. In 1979 the recommendation was withdrawn because the Swedish-made vaccine had become ineffective. In order to determine the incidence of the disease in a non-vaccinating country, 400 children born in 1980 were randomly selected from the population register of Goteborg, Sweden. The parents of the children were interviewed in 1990, when the children were 10 years old. The parents of 377 children could be reached, and of those 372 were not vaccinated against pertussis. Of the nonvaccinated children 61% had experienced clinically typical whooping cough; 195 (119 with and 76 without a history of whooping cough) agreed to donate a serum sample for determination of antibodies against pertussis toxin, filamentous hemagglutinin and pertactin. Of the children with a history of whooping cough, 91% had antibodies against pertussis toxin, as had 64% of the children without a history of disease. All but 3 children had antibodies against filamentous hemagglutinin and all 195 children had antibodies against pertactin. The antibody titers against the 2 last mentioned proteins did not differ between children with and without a history of whooping cough or between children with and without antibodies against pertussis toxin.

In another study conducted by the Center For Infectious Disease Dynamics found that pertussis vaccination "actually enhances the colonization Bordetella parapertussis, the bacteria that causes pertussis, and that the vaccination itself may have contributed to the observed increase in whooping cough over the last decade.

In light of these solid studies why is the rest of the world still heavily vaccinating its citizens for whooping cough / pertussis when it has proven unsuccessful and appears to be increasing in the vaccinated groups? Could this enzyme deficiency in vaccinated subjects be linked to a lack of naturally occurring anti-bodies? From the time we are born our body’s immune system begins to create anti-bodies and depending on the region of birth they create anti-bodies specifically to the threats of their own community. In the western world we heavily vaccine children beginning at childbirth, is this resurgence of pertussis the result of not having their own antibodies due to a life time of vaccinations, this avenue of thought must be considered regardless of the outcome or the profits lost in the world wide vaccination programs?
It used to be that infants were not vaccinated as early as today they allowed 6 months for the child’s own immune defense to develop now they are vaccinated before leaving the hospitals. How can the individuals immune system develop if they are being shut down or altered with vaccinations, how can they hope to adapt to new virus protection when bacteria begin mutating? Do you think what is done in a laboratory is more efficient than what is done within the body pertaining to the individual needs and region to where they live? Will we look back at this generation and see the errors of our ways when antibiotics fail or will we line up for vaccinations each time a new strain of bacteria is discovered since we no longer have our own immune defense? This is an age of discovery but the question that remains unanswered is what the discovery will be?

Products to help build our immunity are: Laktokhan, Colloidal Silver, Full Spectrum Digestive Enzyme, Zinc Picolinate, Thymus Gland and L-Lysine.

Cancer is on the Rise Globally…What Can The Public Believe When It Comes to Clinical Studies?





Cancer is on the Rise Globally…What Can The Public Believe When It Comes to Clinical Studies?

Recently, CTV reported that data from a clinical trial was misrepresented, and now the research community is renewing their resolve to have the true findings of thousands of abandoned or misrepresented studies published.

The study in question was a 2011 osteoporosis study performed at Women’s College Hospital in Toronto. In the study, researchers had concluded that nitroglycerin can help osteoporosis. However, recent findings have proven that data for the study was systematically manipulated. The head researcher, Dr. Sophie Jamal, has since resigned her clinical privileges and stepped down as research director at the Centre for Osteoporosis and Bone Health. The CTV article goes on to list several other studies that have provided false or misleading results.

The findings released in this osteoporosis study were only half the findings; the negative findings were not released, as the researchers falsified the data in order to bring their product to the marketplace.

In the meantime, diseases like cancer are rising at an alarming rate around the world. Among indigenouspopulations, lung, breast, colorectal, and prostate cancers are becoming commonplace. In China, smokingis pervasive, and if trends continue, smoking will be lethal for 1 out of 3 Chinese young men. It is projectedthat by 2030, Canadian cancer rates will grow by 40 percent.

On one hand, we have disease rates out of proportion, and the other, contributing factors that are fueling the disease like the majority of corn, cotton and sugar beets among others heavily sprayed with GMO’s like Roundup, a known 
carcinogenic agent according to the WHO.

And because of the growing diseases out of proportion, pharmaceutical companies are desperate in cashing in and in doing so are falsifying clinical data with hopes of speeding the process of getting their products approved and in the marketplace. How does the media react to such findings? They report them, but they get little attention. On the flip side, natural health products (NPN) are coming under 
attack by the like of investigative reports such as W5 and Marketplace.

Safety has never been a concern for NPN products, and no deaths have been caused, yet properly prescribed pharmaceutical drugs are the 3rd leading cause of death, and these are the ones the media attacks. Natural substances have scientific evidence in effectiveness for cancer. Melatonin 
protects against chemotherapy-induced immunosuppression and has been shown to improve survival rates. Cannabis inhibitstumor cell growth.

My question is why--why do they attack the one thing that is perfectly safe and licensed, and a majority of the population believes in and takes on a regular bases? Is that why they are attacked--because they are safe--or is it to make the drugs not look so bad? Where is the loyalty of true investigative journalists? Is it really in finding the truth or is it because of lobbying and funding from pharma?

In any respect, and according to 
Peter Doshi, a researcher at the University of Maryland School of Pharmacy, when studies are retracted, it hurts everyone and erodes the public’s trust.

And I think that is a good thing, trust is earned and with pharma’s track record, they have a long way to come if they once again want the public’s trust.

Cancer Causing Tampons

The latest news from Doctor's Choice!
View this email in your browser

Cancer-Causing Tampons

Earlier this year, WHO officially announced that glyphosate, best-known as the herbicide Roundup, is a carcinogen. Roundup is synonymous with GMO crops, as GMO crops are specifically designed to grow with plenty of Roundup--in fact, between 1992 and 2012, farmers drenched crops in an estimated 2.6 billion pounds of glyphosate. 80 percent of global GMO crops are engineered to be "Roundup ready."

 Given this prevalence, there are a lot of obvious places to expect glyphosate-laden GMOs, particularly in food crops. However, we should also remember that non-food crops are also susceptible to GMOs. Cotton female hygiene products, particularly tampons, have been examined more closely as of late.

The University of La Plata in Argentina performed a preliminary study finding glyphosate in 85 percent of cotton hygiene products. Sixty-two percent of the samples also tested positive for AMPA (or aminomethylphosphonic acid), a derivative of glyphosate.

Samples tested included locally-purchased gauze, swabs, wipes and feminine care products such as tampons and sanitary pads. According to Dr. Medardo Avila Vazquez, glyphosate is usually sprayed when the cotton bud is open, which means the condensed glyphosate goes directly into the product.

Other natural options are available, including organic hygiene products, menstrual cups, cloth pads, and sea sponges.

All Doctor's Choice® products are produced with non-GMO ingredients, we make certain of this fact, everything that goes into our formulations are non-GMO and paraben free. We recognize the dangers of food / commodity toxicity and educate consumers of the importance of knowing the differences in order to make healthy choices.

The Power of DMAE 

Mental clarity is hard enough to find as an adult. Kids growing up with so many distractions (especially electronic) face an uphill battle. For those who struggle with ADHD and autism, DMAE can be beneficial.

In one study, conducted by Dr. Carl Pfeiffer of the Brain-Bio Center, 25 girls and 83 boys were studied. DMAE was found to result in enhanced behavior in 2/3 of the boys and 3/4 of the girls. Hyperactivity was greatly lessened as attention span was lengthened, irritability was decreased, scholastic ability improved, and, in some cases, IQ was elevated.

Another double-blind study supplemented 74 children who had learning disorders (many hyperactive) with 500 mg DMAE for 3 months. They were then tested for behaviour, reaction time, and put through a series of standard psychometric parameters. There was not only general improvement, but also performance improvement in the children with learning and behaviour disorders.

While DMAE taken internally can help with mental focus, DMAE applied externally can help with lines and wrinkles. A 2005 study found that topical DMAE applied daily for 16 weeks was "safe and efficacious in the mitigation of forehead lines and periorbital fine wrinkles, and in improving lip shape and fullness and the overall appearance of aging skin. These effects did not regress during a 2-week cessation of application. Beneficial trends were noted in the appearance of coarse wrinkles, under-eye dark circles, nasolabial folds, sagging neck skin, and neck firmness."

DMAE: good for you, no matter how you use it!
