What is medical tourism? Medical tourism may be deﬁned as ‘travel (usually international, occasionally local) to acquire healthcare, often on a temporary basis’. Cell therapy medical tourism is, by extension, travel for the purposes of acquiring cell therapy-related healthcare. In the USA, an estimated 750 000 individuals traveled for medical tourism in 2007 and this volume is projected to increase to 1.6 million patients by 2010 (1). Similar trends in medical tourism are appearing in other countries. Globally, many countries offer cell therapies to international patients, especially in south-east Asia (2–5). A number of factors play a role in why so many people travel to seek cellular therapy treatments. First, there is an increasing elderly patient population with an attendant increase in degenerative and chronic diseases, many of which do not respond to standard therapies. Second, cellular therapy treatments are expensive, and the lower costs advertised by some clinics may drive international travel. Third, the internet and media interest have enabled and facilitated the proliferation of clinics advertising cellular therapies, with many making unfounded and dubious safety and efﬁcacy claims supported only by testimonials and anecdotes (6). Fourth, many patients, especially those in wealthier nations, have discretionary income for traveling for medical care, and the enormous media attention given to cellular and stem cell therapy research in recent years has convinced many that it is worthwhile to do so.

Since he’s a mechanical engineer by training and practice, it begs the question: “How did Tom Lewman become a successful hydroponics grower?” Increasingly discontent with the high levels of chemical pesticides contained in the foods he consumed during business travel,Tom, together with his wife Nancy, planned a healthy solution.Their original intent was to have a small greenhouse in which to grow food for the family, though it soon became evident they were on to something much bigger. From the outside, Bux Mont Hydroponics in Perkasie, Pennsylvania (located near the historic Valley Forge), doesn’t look like a large operation, but looks can be deceiving. Consisting of a 6,000 square feet greenhouse, Bux Mont Hydroponics supplies tomatoes, basil, and arugula to seven stores out of a 20-store supermarket chain, with plans to supply all the stores in the chain with Bux Mont produce.Tom is currently considering other crops that include bell peppers, cilantro, dill and lettuce. Demand for Bux Mont fresh produce is so high that Tom is in the middle of building additional bays on his 11-acre property “I have enough supermarkets around me in a 15-mile radius to keep me busy,” said Tom. “Everything is local, delivered as fresh as it can be, and only handled by me.” Although much of the space in Tom’s hoop houses is occupied by rows of tomato vines, visitors will notice sections devoted to other plants, including basil. “There are so many hydroponic tomatoes coming in from places like Canada that prices here are being driven down,” said Tom. “I knew I had to do something different in order to succeed, and that is why I decided to grow basil as a cash crop.”

Most federal agencies require commodities under their jurisdiction be given consideration for reasonable moisture loss in good distribution.* The Federal Food and Drug Administration (FDA); United States Department of Agriculture (USDA); United States Department of Treasury, Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms (UST); and Federal Trade Commission (FTC) allow for reasonable moisture loss occurring in the course of good distribution practices. The United States Supreme Court Rath decision requires local officials to recognize reasonable moisture loss during distribution for items regulated by these federal agencies. When no other agency has concurrent jurisdiction, there is no moisture loss allowance for commodities regulated by California (CA), the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), or USDA Seed Laws. The list, beginning on page 6-2, indicates commodities controlled by each agency. Any commodity class with (CA) or (EPA) after it does not require moisture loss allowance consideration. Any commodity class with (FDA), (UST)), (FTC), or (USDA), with the exception of agricultural seed, require that a moisture loss allowance be considered. There are a variety of products where moisture loss normally will not occur. Some examples are dehydrated seasoning mixes, vacuum-packed coffee, or canned fruit. (FDA tests on cake mixes, flour mixes, and breakfast cereals concluded that they gain moisture in distribution.) Even though moisture loss is recognized by FDA, and page 6-3 indicates that foods are regulated by FDA, these types of products and their packaging make moisture loss in good distribution unlikely. In these cases, moisture loss would be a consideration and would be determined to be 0%.
