U.S. researchers have discovered a compound that can kill breast cancer stem cells, a master cell that resists conventional treatment and may explain why many cancers grow back.  The discovery came using a new method of screening for drugs that specifically target and kill cancer stem cells.  The problem is that cancer stem cells are rare and difficult to study in labs because they quickly change in to other types of cells. And they are hard to kill.

SERT_dist_antidep

In a revealing report, it’s said that the use of antidepressant drugs in the United States doubled from 1996 and 2005.  About 6% of people were prescribed in 1996- 13 million people, to 10% or 27 million people in 2005. More than 164 million prescriptions were written in 2008 for antidepressants, totaling $9.6 billion. The survey did not look at why, but it may be more socially acceptable to be diagnosed with and treated for depression. The availability of new drugs may also be a factor. But what’s the deal? Researchers say that antidepressants do little help, but they are marketed, dam near shoved down our throats..why? Who benefits from medicated masses?

In China, an outbreak of pneumonic plague had caused authorities to lock down a town where about a dozen people are infected with the highly contagious disease. The World Health Organization has been in close contact with Chinese health officials and that measures taken so far to treat and quarantine are appropriate. Pneumonic Plague is spread through the air and can be passed from person to person through coughing. It is caused by the same bacteria that occurs in bubonic plague.

This is a post where we can see how dangerous stupidity is. Kristen Diane Parker 26, a technician with an addiction to pain-killers and Hepatitis C carrier allegedly exposed up to 6,000 patients with Hepatitis C due to her passing on dirty syringes. 6,000 patient? 2 medical facilities? Seems like she left a trail of disease. Apparently she kept dirty syringes in her pocket waiting for an opportunity, and switched them with clean ones filled with Fentanyl. Amazing!! Who is watching these people??

Food Killing Us Softly!!

produce1

This story bears close watching, this is a problem no one is safe from. Children being affected, the Elderly dropping like flies, and diseases running rampant. What is the common theme in all of this? The food.  Corporations have a strangle hold on the food we consume, pumped with chemicals and pesticides, they even have patents on synthetic seeds!!!!  Imagine that you cannot grow your own food, if you do you can be jailed or fined for copyright violations!  Shit is getting ridiculous, from what I’m hearing there is yet another “Senate Bill” that would put restrictions on you being able to feed yourself. It’s called HR 875 The Food Safety Modernization Act. Not to mention the blatant lies on the “Organic Food” labels, like they’re poisoning us on purpose. Take a look around, we live in “The Land Of The Free” yet every year there’s more and more rights being taken away. But as long as he’s smiling on T.V., chatting it’s all good.  Like a mugger in a three piece suit.

FDA Votes To Eliminate Vicodin, Percocet.

acetaminophen

So-called government “experts”, now say that prescription drugs like Vicodin and Percocet should be eliminated for their apparent roles in overdoses.  Wow! How long have these drugs been out? They are just figuring this out? So the FDA panel voted 20-17 that prescription drugs that combine acetaminophen with other painkillers should be done away with. The panel had originally gathered to vote on ways to reduce liver damage due to acetaminophen, which according to their data indicates 60% of acetaminophen-related deaths are related to prescription products. Although some are opposed, citing making a shift without an understanding of the implications of “Pain Management”. In the end they’ll probably just lower the dosage, like they’re trying to do with “Big Tobacco”. They are playing with people’s health, there is no profit in cures…WAKE UP!!  The product has been on the market for 50 years…why now???
