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.

The riot that trashed a Southern California prison and injured 175 inmates began with a fight between black and Hispanic gang members, a reminder of the difficulty of race relations behind bars. In America’s largest state prison system black, Hispanic, Asian and white gangs generally don’t mix. Last fall, the California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation began desegregating two prisons in the Sierra foothills. They are not yet fully integrated, and officials haven’t started on any other prisons. Also, powerful race-based gangs oppose integration and have threatened inmates who participate.

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?
