The C.A.M. Report
Complementary and Alternative Medicine: Fair, Balanced, and to the Point
  • About this web log

    This blog ran from 2006 to 2016 and was intended as an objective and dispassionate source of information on the latest CAM research. Since my background is in pharmacy and allopathic medicine, I view all CAM as advancing through the development pipeline to eventually become integrated into mainstream medical practice. Some will succeed while others fail. But all are treated fairly here.

    Waste products as the next nutraceuticals? reports that scientists from Teagasc (the Irish Agriculture and Food Development Authority) have found a potential use for waste as a potential source of antioxidants.

    For example…

    Teagasc has found that onion peels, a common by-product of food processing, have a higher antioxidant activity than their flesh.

    Teagasc is also looking into how sodium can be replaced in “ready meals” with herbs and spices, which will not only be able to be substituted for flavor and preservative functions, but are also high in antioxidants.
