Pistachio: Potent Medicine for Heart and Airway

For thousands of years Ayurvedic medicine has utilized the galls of the pistachio tree to treat asthma, skin conditions and heart conditions. Now science is showing us the proof.

One might appreciate the term "crack" with the fact that these nuts – together with the surrounding partially opened shell – are typically roasted and nicely flavored with salts and spices. They can be, well, sort of addictive, and the sweet-salty flavor of the shell often rivals the rich taste of the nut meat inside.

The Failing Animal Research Paradigm for Human Disease

"The history of cancer research has been a history of curing cancer in the mouse. We have cured mice of cancer for decades—and it simply didn't work in humans."

This statement made by Richard Klausner, M.D., former director of the National Cancer Institute, to the Los Angeles Times (Cimons 1998), is a statement that applies equally to many other common diseases. A decade ago, researchers reported on the existence of 195 published methods that prevented or delayed the development of type 2 diabetes in mice (Roep et al 2004). Yet none of these "breakthroughs" ever translated to human medicine.
