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.

  • Recent Comments tests omega-3 and -6 fatty acid products

     More than 90% passed the quality control test.

    Among 22 brands, all but 2 contained the expected fatty acids and lacked chemicals that would indicate spoilage.

    That’s an improvement over the results reported in 2002 and 2005 when 6 and 4 products, respectively, failed testing.

    The products tested are listed here. You must subscribe to to get more details.
