Journal of Orthomolecular Medicine  Nutritional Medicine

[The Journal of Orthomolecular Medicine, although in publication for 38 years, has never been listed on the government database MEDLINE. Just one example of how Allopathy suppresses Nutritional MedicineSee: Suppress alternatives  The Vitamin C Conspiracy]

JOURNAL OF ORTHOMOLECULAR MEDICINE ONLINE, BUT NOT ON MEDLINE

"Why is one peer reviewed medical journal indexed, and another not?"

"Curiously, after over 40 years of continuous publication, JOM is still not indexed on MEDLINE. There are about 5,000 other journals indexed by the taxpayer-funded U.S. National Library of Medicine, and over 700 million MEDLINE searches each year. Not one of those searches found a single paper from the Journal of Orthomolecular Medicine. (3)

In 2006, Psychology Today wrote: "The National Library of Medicine refuses to index the Journal of Orthomolecular Medicine, though it is peer-reviewed and seems to meet their criteria." (4)

MEDLINE does, however, index material from Newsweek, Consumer Reports, Readerís Digest and Time magazines."

"Medline excludes the Journal of Orthomolecular Medicine, or the journal Fluoride, or the Journal of the American Association of Physicians and Surgeons, as they all contain supposedly controversial information."

Many may wonder why their MDs are so clueless about nutritional based medicine, here again is proof positive how the medical Mafia controls them, associated professionals, institutions and education via, marketing, misinformation, censorship, other career enhancing and/or destroying and not least bribing....

JOURNAL OF ORTHOMOLECULAR MEDICINE NOW ONLINE

(OMNS February 29, 2008) The archives of the Journal of Orthomolecular Medicine are now posted online. Past issues from 1967 through 2002 are available for downloading, at no charge here.

"36 years of important material is now freely available to everyone," said Steven J. Carter, Executive Director of the Toronto-based International Schizophrenia Foundation, which publishes the Journal.

The Journal of Orthomolecular Medicine has led the way in presenting, in advance of other medical journals, new health concerns and treatments including niacin therapy for schizophrenia and coronary disease; vitamin C for cancer; and the nutritional treatment of behavioral disorders, and drug and alcohol abuse. The JOM was also the first medical journal to publish papers on the nutritional treatment of allergies, autism, and AIDS. JOM published pioneering research on candiasis in 1978, mercury amalgam toxicity in 1982, and chronic fatigue syndrome in 1988. The Journal has published over 100 papers on nutritional medicine and cancer, and over 400 articles on schizophrenia and other psychiatric illnesses. JOM is peer-reviewed.

The Journal was founded in 1967 as the Journal of Schizophrenia, and subsequently titled the Journal of Orthomolecular Psychiatry until 1986. Nobel Laureate Linus Pauling authored 9 papers in the Journal from 1970-1992. It was Pauling that gave nutritional medicine the name "orthomolecular." Says JOM Editor-in Chief Abram Hoffer, MD, PhD: "In 1968, Dr. Pauling proposed the term orthomolecular (1,2) which we recognized as the correct word to define the total interest in nutrition, clinical ecology, and the use of vitamin and mineral supplements. All the pioneers in orthomolecular medicine have reported their findings in this journal. It thus represents a unique source for these earlier and current studies which provide a basis for the increasing growth of nutritional medicine."

ONLINE, BUT NOT ON MEDLINE
Curiously, after over 40 years of continuous publication, JOM is still not indexed on MEDLINE. There are about 5,000 other journals indexed by the taxpayer-funded U.S. National Library of Medicine, and over 700 million MEDLINE searches each year. Not one of those searches found a single paper from the Journal of Orthomolecular Medicine. (3)

In 2006, Psychology Today wrote: "The National Library of Medicine refuses to index the Journal of Orthomolecular Medicine, though it is peer-reviewed and seems to meet their criteria." (4)

MEDLINE does, however, index material from Newsweek, Consumer Reports, Readerís Digest and Time magazines.

Those who may feel think this is irregular may wish to contact the National Library of Medicineís Deputy Director, Betsy L. Humphreys, at the National Institutes of Health, Bldg. 38, Room 2E17A, 8600 Rockville Pike, Bethesda, MD 20894 or email betsy_humphreys@nlm.nih.gov or humphreb@mail.nlm.nih.gov

The Journal of Orthomolecular Medicine archives, numbering over 600 papers, are posted and topic-searchable are here.

DOCTORS SAY: US NATIONAL LIBRARY OF MEDICINE IS CENSORING ACCESS TO NUTRITIONAL RESEARCH

(OMNS 17 Jan 2007) The world's largest medical library is biased, say physicians and educators. The US National Library of Medicine indexes most medical journals, and makes them instantly accessible through NLM's electronic Medline database. However, the peer-reviewed Journal of Orthomolecular Medicine, continually published for 41 years, remains conspicuous by its absence from the library's listings. JOM publishes high-dose vitamin therapy studies and is read by physicians and scientists in over 35 countries. Some critics are now accusing NLM of information censorship, which, they maintain, is grossly inappropriate for a taxpayer-funded public library.

Harold D. Foster, PhD:
"I feel strongly that the JOM must be indexed by Medline. The fact that it is not provides strong support for the views of those people who see Medline as part of a conspiracy to block the public receiving the benefits of nutritional medicine."

Bo H. Jonsson, MD, PhD:
"The time has come for Medline to index the Journal of Orthomolecular Medicine. Empirical findings, interesting reviews and good hypotheses have been published in JOM years before their clinical importance was recognized in other scientific journals."

Michael Friedman, ND:
"As a physician and researcher I find the Journal of Orthomolecular Medicine to be a valuable medical resource. It offers research studies, medical hypotheses, and case studies that can be used in clinical practice. Most of my published work is indexed on Medline, but articles that I have written for JOM have not been indexed. Why is one peer reviewed medical journal indexed, and another not?"

Steve Hickey, PhD:
"Medline's journal selection committee is clearly biased. The membership of such committees needs to reflect the range of medical and associated scientific disciplines. It has been made clear to me that, throughout its history, the committee has never contained a member from orthomolecular medicine or associated areas of nutritional and ecological medicine. Instead, NLM's committee members are selected from professionals that have a track record of support for the establishment. It is therefore not surprising that Medline excludes the Journal of Orthomolecular Medicine, or the journal Fluoride, or the Journal of the American Association of Physicians and Surgeons, as they all contain supposedly controversial information."

Allan N. Spreen, MD:
"The Journal of Orthomolecular Medicine should, without delay, be indexed and listed on Medline. It has been continuously published since 1967, and has been of considerable benefit in providing research I have been unable to locate anywhere else. The fact that Time, Newsweek, Consumer Reports and Reader's Digest magazines are all currently indexed by Medline, while this nutritional medical journal is not, is unconscionable, especially since Medline is funded by the taxpayers."

Abram Hoffer, MD, PhD:
"It is shame that Medline has become a major antagonist to scientific change in medicine by not accepting Journal of Orthomolecular Medicine as a legitimate scientific journal. This journal has published some of the most important research in medicine from a variety of top scientists including two-time Nobel Prize winner Linus Pauling."
