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.

    NUTRACON 2008

    The premier congress on nutraceuticals and functional foods runs from March 12th to 13th in Anaheim, California.

    If you work in the health and nutrition industry, it will be a better use of your time than another day a Disneyland.

    Some of the topics to be covered.

    • Viruses as a cause of obesity
    • New ingredients for the management of blood glucose
    • Probiotics, prebiotics and gut health
    • Sports nutrition and the Beijing Olympics
    • Omega-3 in the 21st century
    • Sasha Issenberg speaking on The Sushi Economy
    • Nutraceuticals and memory and cognition

    I’ll be looking for reports from NUTRACON and report them here.
