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.

E-cigarettes Just As Bad, Says FDA

e-cigarette

Federal health officials say they have found cancer-causing ingredients in electronic cigarettes. The FDA said testing of the products from two leading electronic cigarette makers turned up several toxic chemicals including a key ingredient in anti-freeze. Public health advocates have a legitimate problem with the way the products are marketed to young people. Because electronic cigarettes are not under federal tobacco laws, they’re easier for young people to buy. Electronic cigarettes produce a nicotine mist absorbed directly into the lungs.

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.

china-flag

In events eerily similar to the Tiananmen Square massacre in 1989, another protest in China is met with gunfire and death. I wonder if the U.S. is going to stick they nose in this (Iran). Why no consistency?  Police have sealed off parts of Urumqi, China after tensions between the ethnic Muslim Uighur and China’s Han majority turned into riots leaving 140 dead and another 828 injured. And there are reports of another protest in the city of Kashgar. Alot of unrest in the world.  Stay Tuned.
