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.

    Getting E. coli out of our food supply

    With reports of food poisoning and food recalls, it’s good to know there’s a process that might make our food safer.

    Electrolyzed water systems
    The system uses a brine solution of water and salt in an electrolytic module that’s similar to a battery. The solution is sprayed directly onto foods such as vegetables, destroying bacteria like the E. coli strain responsible for the spinach/green onion outbreaks.

    As water passes through the module, it produces a disinfectant and mild detergent. The waste product is water and salt.

    Available in Russia for two decades, Professor Joellen Feirtag from the University of Minnesota is helping to introduce the system here. A few Minnesota companies are already using it.
