  FDA/CFSAN Guidance for Industry Significant Scientific Agreement in the Review of Health Claims for Conventional Foods ...   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-09)
Studies that examine dietary components often focus on the intake of the substance of interest as part of a food or a total diet, or may infer intake as part of post-hoc evaluations of the data.
Scientific studies provide the means to identify which effects on a disease or health-related condition result from the consumption of a particular food substance and which effects are the products of other factors.
The schema also demonstrates that the significant scientific agreement standard is one that is objective, flexible, and responsive by illustrating the variety of combinations of data from different types of good quality studies that may give rise to a body of evidence sufficient to establish the validity of a substance/disease relationship.

 Nielsen's Psyc of Religion: Scientific Studies of Religion, by Wuthnow
The role of scientific studies should not be, in the first instance, to discover what is common among the various religious traditions, but to understand what is different and to gauge reactions to those differences.
If the study of religion were more consistently deliberate in bringing together the realm of facts with the world of values, then it would be harder to imagine where the objections to scientific studies would lie.
Scientific studies of religion need to be guided both by hubris (to venture hypotheses at all) and humility (to acknowledge when they are wrong).

 A Status Report on Breast Implant Safety
Recently published studies have shown that women with silicone gel-filled breast implants do not have a greatly increased risk of some well-defined autoimmune diseases, which were among the serious health concerns surrounding the devices.
Some recent studies comparing the rates of immune-related diseases in women with implants versus those without implants have provided reassurance that women with implants are not at a greatly increased risk of these disorders.
Recently, however, a study to measure TDA in women with polyurethane implants found that a woman's risk of cancer from exposure to TDA released by the implant is negligible--about one in a million over a lifetime.

During the first three decades of the study the level of caries prevalence was strictly correlated with the availability of an optimal caries preventive F concentration in the drinking water.

These two studies show that food DNA is circulated to the tissues of animals and may even be transmitted from the mother to the fetal tissues.
In one of the two studies transgenic DNA from a plasmid is clearly circulated to tissues while in the other transgenic DNA was not detected in tissues.
However, the latter study involved a lower relative input of the transgene and should be repeated with higher resolution of the transgene and using high relative input of the transgene say by feeding concentrated Bt plasmid.

 MAPS: MDMA ("Ecstasy") Research Page
Study findings also suggest that monkeys, like humans, may slowly lose interest in taking MDMA over time, and that this change of heart is not a sign of brain toxicity.
The rationale for Dr. Grob's proposed study was based in part on numerous remarkable anecdotal accounts of the therapeutic use of MDMA in the treatment of cancer patients.
To date, no scientific studies have been attempted to evaluate the safety, efficacy or mechanism of action of MDMA as an adjunct to the reduction of pain in end-stage cancer patients, as a treatment of anxiety and depression, or as a tool to facilitate psychologically-mediated stimulation of the immune system.
