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.

    The winner in CAM for 2007

    Omega-3 fatty acids, of course

    There’s so much good stuff it’s hard to know where to start.

    Here’s a list of positive study results from this year.

    The bottom line?
    Much of this is preliminary research and nobody should consider taking omega-3 fatty acids as a primary treatment for any of them.

    But the number of positive research being published using essentially cod live oil is impressive. Let’s look forward to further advances.
