Following an application from Vifor Ltd, submitted for authorisation of a health claim pursuant to Article 14 of Regulation (EC) No 1924/2006 via the Competent Authority of the United Kingdom, the EFSA Panel on Dietetic Products, Nutrition and Allergies (NDA) was asked to deliver an opinion on the scientific substantiation of a health claim related to Equazen eye q® and improving reading ability. The Panel considers that Equazen eye q®, a combination of eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA), docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) and gamma-linolenic acid (GLA) (at a weight ratio of 9:3:1), which is the subject of the health claim, is sufficiently characterised. Improving reading ability is a beneficial physiological effect. The applicant provided four human intervention studies that investigated the effect of Equazen eye q® on reading ability in children. No conclusions can be drawn from three of these studies for the scientific substantiation of the claim. The fourth study does not show an effect of Equazen eye q ...
... A. Voin Abstracts It is considered phenomena of science, which gave birth to the problem and which the analytics (the logic positivists) tried unsuccessfully to overcome and the post positivists used them for substantiating their conclusions about relativeness of scientific cognition. The general method of substantiation, which rational science uses to substantiate its theories, is expounded. It is shown, that this method is unchangeable through changing of scientific paradigms, substantiating layers and so on. Possessing by science of this method divides it from non-science and pseudoscience and provides its especial epistemological status. On base of this method, rational explanation of above mentioned phenomena of science is given, and argumentation of the post positivists is refuted. Does difference between science and non-science exist in principle and if it does, what is it? Does ...
Following an application from Specialised Nutrition Europe (formerly IDACE), submitted pursuant to Article 14 of Regulation (EC) No 1924/2006 via the Competent Authority of France, the EFSA Panel on Dietetic Products, Nutrition and Allergies (NDA) was asked to deliver an opinion on the scientific substantiation of a health claim related to iodine and contribution to normal cognitive development. The food constituent, iodine, which is the subject of the health claim, is sufficiently characterised. Contribution to normal cognitive development is a beneficial physiological effect for infants and young children. A claim on iodine and contribution to normal cognitive and neurological function in the general population has already been assessed with a favourable outcome. In addition, there is a large body of evidence indicating a crucial role for iodine in growth and development. The Panel notes the well established role of iodine in preventing iodine deficiency disorders such as retarded mental and ...
Food Standards Australia New Zealand (FSANZ) is seeking comments on its proposed approach to revising infant formula requirements in the Food Standards Code.
1 & 2. Upheld. The ASA asked Medical Thermal Imaging to supply robust clinical evidence to support the claim that their product could detect abnormalities before mammography and that it was medically recognised. This information was not supplied.. Because the advertiser did not provide robust evidence to substantiate the claim that thermography could detect active breast abnormalities which also compared its efficacy with mammography or that it was medically recognised, we concluded the ad was misleading.. The ad breached CAP Code (Edition 12) rules 3.1 3.1 Marketing communications must not materially mislead or be likely to do so. (Misleading advertising), 3.7 3.7 Before distributing or submitting a marketing communication for publication, marketers must hold documentary evidence to prove claims that consumers are likely to regard as objective and that are capable of objective substantiation. The ASA may regard claims as misleading in the absence of adequate substantiation. (Substantiation) and ...

The Agency was created in 2001 based on a report by Professor James,[3] issued after several high-profile outbreaks and deaths from foodborne illness. It was felt that it was inappropriate to have one government department, the Ministry of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food, responsible for both the health of the farming and food processing industries and for food safety. Uniquely for a UK Government department, the Food Standards Act gave the Agency the statutory right to publish the advice it gives to Ministers - and as a signal of its independence it declared that it would invariably do so. From its inception, the Agency declared that it would take no decisions about food policy except in open Board meetings accessible to the public. Since 2003, these meetings have been webcast live, enabling consumers to see the decision-making process in action. Each Board meeting concludes with a Q&A session in which web viewers can question the Board or its Executive directly. In 2006, the Wine Standards ...
The American sweets at Hopscotch are genuine imports. As such, most were destined for the US domestic market and the food labelling reflects this.. The requirements of the US Federal Food & Drug Administration (FDA) differ to our EEC food regulations. We endeavour to ensure that the sweets sold at Hopscotch contain permitted EEC levels of food additives and colours. However, the US labelling does not comply with EEC and UK Foods Standards Agency regulations.. In particular, many of the sweets here contain colours that may have an adverse effect on activity and attention in children. These are:. ...

Tom Price discovered a boulder containing gold on a visit to the area in 1906.[5]:8. In 1911, important claims were made along the Main Break. John Hunton staked claims on 18 Feb. 1911, which were incorporated as the Hunton Gold Mines Ltd. in April 1914, eventually becoming part of the Amalgamated Kirkland. Stephen Orr filed claims on 22 Feb. 1911, the basis for the Teck-Hughes Mine and the Orr Gold Mines Ltd, which was incorporated in June 1913. George Minaker staked claims on 23 Feb. 1911, part of which he sold to Oakes in Sept. 1912, becoming part of the Lake Shore Mine. John Reamsbottom filed claims on 18 April 1911 which became part of the Teck-Hughes Mine. C.A. McKane staked claims on 20 April 1911, which became the Kirkland Lake Gold Mine. A. Maracle staked claims on 5 June 1911 which became part of the Townsite claims. Melville McDougall staked claims on 27 June 1911, which he transferred to Oakes on 6 Sept. 1912, and became the part of the Lake Shore Mine. Jack Matchett staked a claim ...
Desai: Claim substantiation is a very powerful theory, based on FTC standards. Standard isnt just "we think it"; can require certain kinds of tests. He had one case where someone paid for a 30-person test and market research and said that proved the product caused weight loss. Our claim: we are not acting on behalf of the FTC, but litigating under the UCL. We arent saying we need the same level of proof, but rather saying that under California (as well as NY and some other states) law the standard isnt deception but rather "likely to deceive," a much lower standard, and thats where we try to get in this idea of lack of substantiation. (Ok, I think I see the conceptual disconnect here. Ps really need to be making the Lanham Act move of identifying the necessarily implied claim of substantiation--which is a straight-up false message received by a consumer as a result of her receipt of the explicit scientific-sounding claim--rather than just saying the scientific-sounding claim is ...

ADR Substantiation: Drug safety issues pose serious health threats to the population and constitute a major cause of mortality worldwide. Due to the prominent implications to both public health and the pharmaceutical industry, it is of great importance to unravel the molecular mechanisms by which an adverse drug reaction can be potentially elicited. These mechanisms can be investigated by placing the pharmaco-epidemiologically detected adverse drug reaction in an information-rich context and by exploiting all currently available biomedical knowledge to substantiate it. We present a computational framework for the biological annotation of potential adverse drug reactions. The proposed framework seeks to provide a biological explanation (signal substantiation) by exploring mechanistic connections that might explain why a drug produces a specific adverse reaction. The mechanistic connections include the activity of the drug, related compounds and drug metabolites on protein targets, the association ...
This paper deals with the substantiation that a multivariate response self- or trace-driven simulation model, within its domain of applicability, possesses a satisfactory range of accuracy consistent with the intended application of the model. A methodology is developed by using simultaneous confidence intervals to do this substantiation with respect to the mean behavior of a simulation model that represents an observable system. A trade off analysis can be performed and judgement decisions can be made as to what data collection budget to allocate, what data collection method to use, how many observations to collect on each of the model and system response variables, and what confidence level to choose for producing the range of accuracy with satisfactory lengths. The methodology is illustrated for self-driven steady-state and trace-driven terminating simulations. ...
At least 700,000 eggs implicated in the fipronil scandal have been imported into the United Kingdom, far more than initial estimates, the Food Standards Agency has confirmed.. The Food Standards Agency said products affected in the United Kingdom were mainly processed foods in which egg is one ingredient among many others, mostly used in sandwich fillings or other chilled foods.. In France, about 250,000 affected eggs have sold in the country since April and authorities say products containing eggs from contaminated farms will be taken off the shelves. While some European countries eggs containing Fipronil residues have been sold as fresh eggs, this is not the case in the UK.. This is more than 33 times the 21,000 first estimated, the Food Standards Agency has said.. The U.K. raised its estimate of eggs contaminated by the unauthorized pesticide fipronil, with the outbreak believed to have affected some products made by major supermarkets.. Almost 250,000 eggs contaminated with an insecticide ...

From market sizing to the positions from FDA and FTC on NDIs and claims substantiation, the International Probiotic Associations DC workshop succeeded in providing a venue for sharing knowledge and expertise.
With that out of the way, Cloroxs test couldnt support the necessary implication of litter superiority. "In actual practice, however, cats do not seal their waste, and smells offend as much during the first twenty-two hours as they do afterwards. Thus, the Jar Tests unrealistic conditions say little, if anything, about how carbon performs in cat litter in circumstances highly relevant to a reasonable consumer." Moreover, substantiation of the claims in the ad would require proof not just that carbon eliminates odors in open cat litter, but also that it outperforms baking soda in that task and that baking soda eliminates only 32% of those odors. "Given that the Jar Test says little about how substances perform in litter as opposed to jars, it cannot possibly support Cloroxs very specific claims with regard to litter." Thus, the ad was literally false by necessary implication. (In my opinion, the epicycles of Lanham Act falsity parsing are now doing more harm than good; necessary implication ...

1.3] In the present case the Board notes that the late submission and the admission of the new ground for opposition into the proceedings have not been mentioned in writing or orally. The OD has not mentioned those matters in its notification of June 2, 2006, and has never informed the patent proprietor during the opposition proceedings that it intended to introduce this new ground. In particular, it can be seen from the minutes of the OPs before the OD […] that the discussions concerned exclusively the substantiation of the ground for opposition pursuant to A 100 (b). The discussions were terminated after a pause for deliberation by the OD, via the announcement of the decision that the requirements of A 83 were fulfilled. In other words, the OD simultaneously informed the patent proprietor on the - implicit - admission of the ground for opposition pursuant to A 100 (b) and its unsuccessfulness. The late submission of the ground for opposition pursuant to A 100 (b) and of the VB1 data during ...
6) Subtle to the outsider, but damning in its reality.. (7) The NIH never cites the original Koch Postulates, it gives no substantiation for such a change, but merely assumes its new definition of terms without notifying it readers accordingly.. (8) Cf.

(9) Cf. the debate in 1927ff between Werner Heisenbergs Uncertainty Principle and the rebuttal by Kurt Gödel in his Incomplete Theorems; the same subjective v. objective attempt to weave prejudice into science (cf.

Each condition listed on that graph has enough supporting evidence to be included in the general sleep literature (although "pacemaker" is really more a treatment than it is a condition). But that graph, while lovely and useful (snagged from ResMed) is not absolutely comprehensive. It cant be, because 1) it only addresses men, and 2) there are new developments that havent yet been accepted into the cannon. We also have evidence of links to Ischemic Stroke, GERD, PCOS, and Metabolic Syndrome.. Lets be clear here. Correlation does not necessitate causation. Just because two conditions often show up together does not mean that one causes the other. Many of those correlations are still under study, although some (like the one with PCOS) have enough substantiation to be widely accepted.. Then there are the other standard signs (not conclusive on their own, but alarming when taken in conjunction) like snoring, trouble sleeping, frequent wakings, and fatigue (though dont ever tell a doctor you have ...

FIS was created, in part, in response to the Bioterrorism Act of 2002, which gave high priority to improved information management to help protect the food supply. The Act requires that FDA develop two systems: one to support the registration of facilities that manufacture, process, pack, or hold food products intended for consumption in the United States and one to receive prior notice before food is imported or offered for import into the United States. Under the law, facilities must be registered by December 12, 2003 when Prior Notice went into effect. ...
Our main focus at the moment is on responding to a UK government consultation on proposed regulations for the marketing of formula. As they stand, these would allow companies to introduce new ingredients into formula and launch them onto the market without seeking any approval, without registering any evidence on the safety or need for the new ingredients, without any independent review of evidence and without an independent monitoring system for health workers and others to report concerns. All companies will have to do is present a model label of their new product to the Food Standards Agency. In theory they have to have studies that demonstrate the safety of the ingredients, but there is no requirement to present this or for the ingredients to be approved before being put on the market. You can help us achieve better controls by supporting our safer formula campaign and our work (why not become a member of Baby Milk Action ...

The assessee entered into a development agreement pursuant to which the developer demolished the property and constructed a new building comprising three floors. In consideration of granting the development rights, the assessee received ` 4 crores and two floors of the new building. The AO held that in computing capital gains, the cost of construction of ` 3.43 crores incurred by the developer on the development of the property had to be added to the sum of ` 4 crores received by the assessee. The assessee claimed that as the said capital gains was invested in the said two floors, she was eligible for exemption u/s. 54. The AO rejected the claim on the basis that the units on the said floors were independent & self-contained and not a residential house and granted exemption for only one unit. The CIT(A) and Tribunal upheld the assessee s claim by relying on CIT v. D. Ananda Basappa (2009) 309 ITR 329 (Kar.) and CIT v. K. G. Rukminiamma (Smt.) (2011) 331 ITR 211 (Kar). On appeal by the ...
The truth is that modern Economics has been designed to completely hide the monetary system that hovers above the economy. It assumes money is just a medium of exchange floating through the economy to facilitate a free market and generate wealth. At times that has been true, but today its probably the biggest lie of modern history. The current system does not generate wealth and freedom for most people. It generates debt and servitude. And it is not a free market. Todays money flows from a top-down imperial power system expanding globally. It creates a master-servant relationship because all money comes from privately held debt. Let me say that again. ALL MONEY COMES FROM DEBT (for those of us who suffered the most indoctrination by attending schools like Harvard, lets pause here for a moment so we can catch up to the rest of the class). This means in order for governments, businesses, and people to have the liquidity necessary to live, they must agree to sign over a claim on their assets to ...

An interesting approach to documentation and sourcing. You accept a hypothesis (in this case that Ronald Reagan ended the Cold War), then refuse to tolerate any alternative explanations, no matter how well grounded. You claim that such "liberal" views require substantiation, and yet, when substantiation for them is offered, you excise the substantiation altogether. Ill note that no documentation whatsoever is offered in support of the hypothesis that Reagan brought the end of communism in Eastern Europe. I should add that "liberal" is a very misleading and damning characterization of these views, since the thesis that Reagan wasnt responsible for the fall of communism derives more from any number of factors in which Reagan had no bearing whatsoever. The references provided and then unceremoniously removed without explanation explain these in more detail. For instance, Jan Kubiks work on the emergence of civil society and Solidarity in Poland shows how important the Catholic Church and ...
On October 31, 2000, the Food and Drug Administration responded to the third of four proposed health claims for dietary supplements that were the subject of the infamous "Pearson decision" with a new twist in the health claims arena: a "qualified health claim" approved solely for a dietary supplement, and thus far only for the alleged relationship between omega-3 fatty acids and coronary heart disease (CHD). The case of Pearson and Shaw v. Shalala challenged FDAs 1993 decision to deny four health claims: antioxidant vitamins and certain cancers, omega-3 fatty acids and CHD, fiber and colorectal cancer, and dietary supplements as a superior source of folic acid for reducing the risk of neural tube defects. Ultimately, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit found for the plaintiffs and directed FDA to reconsider authorization of these claims; further clarify the "significant scientific agreement" standard it requires for authorization of new health claims, and consider whether health ...
The new FDA research study by Brenda M. Derby and Alan S. Levy, which does not reflect an official agency position, found that written qualifications expressing scientific uncertainty failed to significantly reduce consumer confidence in questionable health claims. By contrast, a "report card" style graphic may successfully communicate some distinctions in levels of scientific certainty. Unfortunately, however, a report card with a "B" or "C" rating seemed to increase consumer confidence in the health claim by comparison with no report card at all -- even though having no report card means the claim meets FDAs stronger standard of significant scientific agreement. The authors speculated that the qualified health claims report cards might work better if the graphic appeared on all products with health claims, even those that rate an "A ...

The new Good Manufacturing Practice regulations for dietary supplements require that manufacturers with shelf life statements on their labels have appropriate scientific substantiation. However, expiration dates are not required by the rule, and the cGMPs released in June provide little to no guidance as to what qualifies as scientific substantiation. Manufacturers are left wondering whether it is in their best interest to provide a shelf life statement and, if so, what the appropriate testing programs are for substantiating shelf life - a daunting and difficult task for manufacturers and marketers of herbal products. To help manufacturers and marketers comply with GMPs, the American Herbal Products Association offers an information-packed tele-seminar, "Shelf Life Statements on Dietary Supplement Labels.".

from wikipedia: Junk foods typically contain high levels of calories from sugar or fat with little protein, vitamins or minerals. Foods commonly considered junk foods include salted snack foods, gum, candy, sweet desserts, fried fast food, and sugary carbonated beverages. [5] Many foods such as hamburgers, pizza, and tacos can be considered either healthy or junk food depending on their ingredients and preparation methods with the more highly processed items usually falling under the junk food category. [6] What is and is not junk food can also depend on the persons class and social status, with wealthier people tending to have a broader definition while lower-income consumers may see fewer foods as junk food, especially certain ethnic foods ...

Thats from the New York Times. Anyone who believes that Congress will actually manage to ban junk food from schools-including junk food from vending machines-should save their optimism for Powerball or some other reasonable venture. Back in May of 2004, Sen. Tom Harkin (D-IA) introduced a measure that would merely develop nutritional guidelines for school vending machines. Guidelines. Thats all. But no. Four Democrats sided with eight Republicans to defeat the measure. Is the junk food lobby really that powerful? Consider the evidence: In June of 2005, Connecticut Governor Jodi Rell vetoed a bill that wouldve rid Connecticut schools of junk food, despite widespread parental approval. Guess who opposed the measure? Two months earlier, Kentucky had just barely managed to squeak out a bill that banned soda from elementary schools-anything more stringent would never have passed. Arizona had to make the same compromise in April. Members of Congress who oppose federal regulations on junk food ...

Its pasteurisation thats the issue, so if the cheese is made from pasteurised milk, then its fine. If not, then the bacteria in it could potentially cause you to have tummy upset, which may possiblty put your baby at risk. If the cheese is baked, then the bacteria will be killed anyway. I must admit, I had some goats cheese salad when I was pregnat with Mooch and she is fine. So I think the answer is, if its pasteurised go ahead, if its not and its cooked at a high temp, then its probably ok ...

Excessive consumption of junk food can change behavior, weaken self-control and lead to overeating and obesity, according to a study by the School of Medical Sciences, UNSW Australia.. Published in the journal Frontiers in Psychology, researchers discovered that feeding rats junk food made them fat and reduced their appetite for "novel foods." Led by Professor Margaret Morris, experts taught young male rats to associate two different sound cues with flavors of sugar water - cherry and grape.. The rats raised on a healthy diet stopped responding to the cues linked to a flavor after having recently indulged in one of them. This biological signal is hardwired into animals, protecting them from overeating and promoting a balanced diet.. Rats that ate a diet filled with junk food for two weeks, including cookies, cakes, pie and dumplings, increased their weight by 10 percent and changed their behavior "dramatically.". The rats "became indifferent in their food choices and no longer avoided the sound ...

HDAC inhibitors have been shown to sensitize tumor cell lines and rodent tumors to ionizing radiation, so it is not surprising to find that PCI-24781 also acts as a radiosensitizer in two human tumor cell lines. Although several potential mechanisms of radiosensitization by HDAC inhibitors have been proposed, the mechanism for sensitization by PCI-24781 has not been examined and is relevant to its optimal combination with radiation in the clinic. Results shown here point to misrepair of radiation damage, but this will require further substantiation. Our results also rule out two potential mechanisms of sensitization: redistribution to a more radiosensitive cell cycle phase and inhibition of initial rejoining of radiation-induced double-strand breaks.. Initial experiments examined the toxicity of PCI-24781 in exponentially growing SiHa and WiDr cell lines. Histone acetylation was near maximum after the lowest dose (0.1 μmol/L) and treatment time (4 h; Fig. 1) in line with previous results (2). ...
Not only was it predicted by Pauling theoretically, it "is now so well grounded and its experimental substantiation so extensive that there can be no doubt whatever about its application to the amide group." Pauling further restricted his study to finding all hydrogen-bonded structures for a single polypeptide chain in which the carbonyl C=O group of each amino acid residue accepts an N-H hydrogen bond from another residue. They believed this problem was tractable (unlike the huge number of structures predicted by Bragg, Kendrew, and Perutz) because of the planar nature of the peptide group, and adhering to the precise bond lengths and angles determined by previous x-ray scattering experiments.. Indeed, there were "five and only five configurations for the chain that satisfy the conditions" and three of these were unsatisfactory-the length of the hydrogen bonds required would be much longer than the 0.272 nm observed previously. Of the two which remained, one had 3.69 amino acid residues per ...
