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.

Antidepressant Use Rising To The Top.

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?

Cocaine, Big In “The Heartland”.

It seems that while all eyes are on the border and overseas, drug rings and cartel associates are putting it down right in the middle of America. In places such as Watertown, Wisconsin Mexican drug gangs have moved in and set up shop, much to the shock of our Caucasian American brethren. It’s a story that echoes elsewhere, the U.S. Justice Dept. says more than 200 U.S. cities have seen cartel-related drug smuggling. Keep watch.

Meth Lab House Horrors Linger!

This is definitely a buyer beware post, in this case potential home owners. It seems that houses that were previously used as laboratories in making Methamphetamine have lingering toxic affects to the new owners. With meth lab seizures on the rise, cases are piling up, drawing attention to the problem of meth contamination which can permeate drywall, insulation, carpets and air ducts causing respiratory ailments and other health problems. Also causing financial problems as it takes thousands of dollars to clean up the toxins and medical bills.

Oscar G. Mayer (Meat Man) Dead At 95.

300px-Oscar_Mayer_logo.svg

Oscar G. Mayer III, of the family that founded Oscar Mayer Foods has died at the age of 95. Oscar Mayer Foods was once the largest private employer in Madison, Wisconsin. Mayer, who was chairman of the board retired in 1977 soon after the company recorded it’s first billion dollar year. The company was later sold to General Foods and is now a unit of Kraft. I posted this because this family was a major contributor to how food is mass produced now. No respect for the animal, keeping them in filthy conditions, beating and castrating animals with no anesthetics and pumping the animals full of anti-biotics and steroids. Did you know that when you slaughter a conscious, afraid animal that it’s body is full of adrenalin and other enzymes that is toxic to us during consumption? The video below shows more than I can say, and it’s kind of graphic.

Mexico Fortifies Troops In Juarez.

The war continues in Mexico, as the government and the drug cartels clash in the streets of Juarez, Mexico.  A border town right next to El Paso, Texas. The Mexican government has sent an additional 2,000 troops to Juarez in an attempt to suppress the Cartels who are killing policeman and civilian alike. In this past March, the Mexican government had sent 5,000 troops to Juarez, calming the violence temporarily (and Swine Flu) bringing the total to 7,000 troops. Stay Tuned.

53 Inmates Escape Mexican Prison, With Cartel Assistance!!

mexico_desktop_1024x768

Something out of a movie; a daring escape, cartel gunmen, lax security guards, crazy. This one looks planned at first glance, and it makes sense considering the lack of respect given to Mexico by the United States recently. According to reports the 53 inmates that escaped are considered “Dangerous To The Citizens Of The World” drug smugglers and worse. And apparently the prison guards didn’t do a thing, until the escapees vehicles were gone. After the U.S. used this swine flu to control the border, I don’t think the Mexicans appreciate being Guinea Pigs. And don’t think they also haven’t come to a realization of these recent events.
