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.

China In Quarantine For The Plague!

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.
