The Rational for Annual Blood Test -Health conscious people often fail to appreciate the critical importance of regular blood screening. The most comprehensive blood test is called the CBC/Chemistry Profile. This low-cost profile measures 35 different blood parameters that can have a dramatic impact on one’s state of health.   http://www.lef.org/magazine/mag2001/apr2001_healthwatch.html 

Dying From Neglect - Most people think that modern medicine properly diagnoses and treats anemia. The startling fact is that 24% to 40% of hospitalized patients over age 65 are anemic.[2] Compared to non-anemic people, these blood deficient individuals have high mortality rates from diseases such as heart failure, stroke and cancer. http://www.lef.org/magazine/mag2002/mar2002_awsi_01.html

Just Say No to X-Rays! - Many doctors consider radiation from medical X-rays to be harmless. However, a new National Academy of Sciences report confirms what Life Extension has long argued: that any amount of radiation has the potential to damage DNA, increasing the risk of certain cancers and atherosclerosis.  http://www.lef.org/magazine/mag2005/oct2005_awsi_01.htm

Consumer Rape – Drug companies enjoy a virtual monopoly of the American market because of FDA over-regulation. FDA approval requirements make it too expensive for widespread competition to develop. Even after a drug goes off patent, it still costs too much money to obtain “generic” approval from the FDA. These regulatory burdens strangle free market competitive forces and cause Americans to pay the highest prices in the world for their medications.http://www.lef.org/magazine/mag2002/apr2002_awsi_01.html

The FDA Versus The American Consumer - http://www.lef.org/magazine/mag2002/oct2002_awsi_01.html

Why cancer patients are dying needlessly - The Lethal Information Gap - The appalling neglect of human life continues unabated, as physicians fail to prescribe drugs that could alleviate or cure disease. One example of an overlooked drug is cimetidine (Tagamet®). http://www.lef.org/magazine/mag2002/jul2002_awsi_01.html

Dangerous Medicine - The FDA claims that the drugs it approves are “safe.” This charade is rapidly collapsing. PBS television’s investigative series Frontline has aired a shocking exposé of dangerous prescription drugs and the FDA’s complicity in allowing this outrage to occur.1 http://www.lef.org/magazine/mag2004/mar2004_awsi_01.htm

Cimetidine (Tagamet®) For Cancer Treatment - http://www.lef.org/magazine/mag2002/jul2002_cover_cimetidine_01.html

Is Conventional Medicine Finally Catching Up?  - Today, when picking up the Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA) or New England Journal of Medicine, it is sometimes hard to differentiate some of their articles from what you might read in Life Extension magazine. http://www.lef.org/magazine/mag2002/dec2002_awsi_01.html

OVERDOSE! -You are about to discover an overlooked reason for why Americans suffer so many unpleasant and lethal side effects from their prescription medications. http://www.lef.org/magazine/mag2003/mar2003_awsi_01.html

Medications side effects - http://www.lef.org/magazine/mag2003/mar2003_cover_effects_01.html

Carcinogens Are Everywhere, But Do You Have To Worry? A growing number of Americans are modifying their lifestyle to avoid exposure to toxic chemicals. Those seeking to maintain good health are staying away from cigarette smoke, tap water, gene-mutating foods and other carcinogen carriers. Despite these heroic efforts, two newly released studies show that our bodies have become toxic chemical repositories.http://www.lef.org/magazine/mag2003/apr2003_awsi_01.html

Don't Blame the Doctors - Physicians are under intense criticism for failing to keep up with scientific advances that could lead to better medical treatment. The problem doctors face is that there are too many discoveries being made to stay fully abreast. The upside to this rapid scientific evolution is that educated patients can investigate their own medical disorders and find solutions beyond what their physician prescribes. http://www.lef.org/magazine/mag2003/jul2003_awsi_01.html

Startling New Findings About Homocysteine – Must Read - Several years ago, we made an alarming discovery! People who had previously been in safe ranges were calling us to report that their new blood tests revealed markedly higher homocysteine levels. http://www.lef.org/magazine/mag2003/nov2003_awsi_01.htm

The Crumbling Walls of Medical Ignorance - A rebellion is taking place within the citadels of establishment medicine, as leading physicians and scientists come to the realization that doctors are failing to translate research discoveries into lifesaving therapies. http://www.lef.org/magazine/mag2003/dec2003_awsi_01.htm

How You Can Help End the Heart Disease Epidemic - The latest science coupled with advanced nutrition is providing us with a road map to help end heart disease. http://www.lef.org/magazine/mag2003/dec2003_cover_heart_01.htm

What You Don’t Know About Blood Sugar - http://www.lef.org/magazine/mag2004/jan2004_awsi_01.htm

Cardiologists Overlook Lifesaving Discovery - Statin drugs lower cholesterol, but deplete the body’s store of CoQ10, thereby creating statin-induced cardiomyopthay. Read what the FDA needs to do to protect statin users. http://www.lef.org/magazine/mag2004/feb2004_awsi_01.htm

FDA Approves Deadly Drugs, Delays Lifesaving Therapies - On January 22, 2004, the FDA confirmed what Life Extension members have long known—that acetaminophen is extremely dangerous.2 Acetaminophen is sold under the brand name Tylenol® and is contained in 600 other drug products. Life Extension revealed the toxicity of acetaminophen more than 12 years ago. We harshly criticized the FDA for not mandating that the label of acetaminophen products warn those with liver or kidney problems to avoid the drug. http://www.lef.org/magazine/mag2004/may2004_awsi_01.htm

A New, Independent Risk Factor for Heart Disease - Obesity, high blood pressure, elevated cholesterol, and diabetes have long been recognized as major risk factors for heart disease. But startling new research suggests that low free testosterone, low HDL, and age may be the strongest independent risk factors for a heart attack. http://www.lef.org/magazine/mag2004/aug2004_awsi_01.htm

The Colonoscopy Dilemma - Colorectal cancer is preventable if detected early, but still kills more than 57,000 Americans every year. Startling new findings conclusively demonstrate the benefits of flexible tube versus virtual colonoscopy.  http://www.lef.org/magazine/mag2004/dec2004_awsi_01.htm

Are You Absorbing Enough CoQ10? http://www.lef.org/magazine/mag2004/dec2004_supp_coq10_01.htm

Disease-Preventive Effects of Green Tea -  Modern science indicates that green tea polyphenols may be uniquely effective in preventing a wide range of cancers and protecting against cardiovascular disorders and possibly dementia. http://www.lef.org/magazine/mag2005/jan2005_cover_green_tea_01.htm

Doctors Overlook Novel Methods to Prevent Heart Attack - Doctors say that more people should be prescribed statin drugs. The underlying science, however, reveals that consumption of good-tasting cholesterol-lowering foods, along with increased intake of fiber and certain supplements may provide greater benefits—without the side effects of statin drugs. http://www.lef.org/magazine/mag2005/may2005_awsi_01.htm

Does PSA Promote Prostate Cancer? - Previously considered only a blood marker for prostate health, PSA (prostate-specific antigen) may actually play a role in the promotion and metastasis of prostate cancer. Studies suggest that keeping PSA levels low may reduce the risk of prostate cancer. This can be accomplished with drugs such as Avodart® and with nutrients such as lycopene, boron, green tea, soy, and curcumin that may suppress PSA levels through a variety of mechanisms. http://www.lef.org/magazine/mag2005/jun2005_awsi_01.htm

I3C & DIM - Natural, Dual-Action Protection Against Deadly Cancers - Guard Against Estrogen-Induced Cancers -An extract from cruciferous vegetables called I3C has long been known to favorably modulate estrogen and potentially reduce the risk of certain cancers. Botanists have developed enhanced vegetable concentrates that provide more diverse natural protection against breast, prostate, and other hormone-induced cancers. http://www.lef.org/magazine/mag2006/jan2006_report_i3c_01.htm

CoQ10 and Cancer - Breast cancer will kill 40,000 women this year, yet startling research reviewed by the National Cancer Institute reveals that CoQ10 may be an effective adjuvant treatment. Even newer studies document how CoQ10 kills cancer cells without harming healthy cells and how CoQ10 enhances the anti-tumor effects of the breast cancer drug tamoxifen. Human trials are desperately needed to confirm CoQ10’s potential to save thousands from needlessly dying of breast and other cancers.  http://www.lef.org/magazine/mag2006/feb2006_awsi_01.htm
