World's Largest Animal Study on Cell Tower Radiation Confirms Cancer Link
April 3, 2018
Scientists call on the World Health Organization International Agency for Research on Cancer to re-evaluate the carcinogenicity of cell phone radiation after the Ramazzini Institute and US government studies report finding the same unusual cancers
Researchers with the renowned Ramazzini Institute (RI) in Italy announce that a large-scale lifetime study of lab animals exposed to environmental levels of cell tower radiation developed cancer. A $25 million study of much higher levels of cell phone radiofrequency (RF) radiation, from the US National Toxicology Program (NTP), has also reported finding the same unusual cancer called Schwannoma of the heart in male rats treated at the highest dose. In addition, the RI study of cell tower radiation also found increases in malignant brain (glial) tumors in female rats and precancerous conditions including Schwann cells hyperplasia in both male and female rats.
The Efficacy and Safety of Natural Honey on the Healing of Foot Ulcers: A Case Series
October 27, 2016
Natural honey dressings have been used to treat wounds throughout the ages.1 This case series describes the use of natural honey in patients with a variety of chronic foot ulcers. A wound assessment was carried out daily.
Due to its therapeutic characteristics, natural honey has been used in wound care as a topical treatment for infected wounds for stimulating tissue regeneration, debriding necrotic tissues, reducing edema, and promoting rapid wound healing.
Autistic Boy Gains Ability to Speak After Just 2 Days of Cannabis Oil Treatment
June 23, 2015
This story is yet another piece of evidence piling onto the mountain of support for cannabis oil and full marijuana legalization.
At 10 months of age, Kalel Santiago of Puerto Rico was diagnosed with a rare form of cancer called neuroblastoma. He endured chemotherapy, radiation treatments, and surgery for two years - and survived. Then he was diagnosed with something permanent: severe autism that disabled him from speaking.
People Kept Complaining This Restaurant Sucked, Look What They Found Out...
July 22, 2014
A famous restaurant in NYC decided to hire a firm to figure out why they kept getting bad reviews. What this firm discovered is quite interesting.
"We are a popular restaurant for both locals and tourists alike. Having been in business for many years, we noticed that although the number of customers we serve on a daily basis is almost the same today as it was 10 years ago, the service just seems super slow even thought we added more staff and cut back on the menu items...
Scientists Officially Link Processed Foods To Autoimmune Disease
July 1, 2014
The modern diet of processed foods, takeaways and microwave meals could be to blame for a sharp increase in autoimmune diseases such as multiple sclerosis, including alopecia, asthma and eczema.
A team of scientists from Yale University in the U.S and the University of Erlangen-Nuremberg, in Germany, say junk food diets could be partly to blame. 'This study is the first to indicate that excess refined and processed salt may be one of the environmental factors driving the increased incidence of autoimmune diseases,' they said.
Influenza Vaccine Failure among Highly Vaccinated Military Personal, No protection against Pandemic Strains.
Following the 2009 influenza A/H1N1 pandemic, both seasonal and pH1N1 viruses circulated in the US during the 2010-2011 influenza season; influenza vaccine effectiveness may vary between live attenuated and trivalent inactivated vaccines as by subtype.
Overall, a low level of protection against clinically-apparent, laboratory-confirmed, influenza was found for the 2010-11 seasonal influenza vaccines. TIV immunization was associated with higher protection than LAIV, however, no protection against A/H1 was noted, despite inclusion of a pandemic influenza strain as a vaccine component for two consecutive years. Vaccine virus mismatch or lower immunogenicity may have contributed to these findings and deserve further examination in controlled studies. Continued assessment of VE in military personnel is essential in order to better inform vaccination policy decisions.
The Gadget That Will Make You Feel Like Being A Jedi Is Just Months Away
June 24, 2014
The Myo armband can control electronics around you based on your gestures.
After years of tweaking, the technology that will make you think you're a Jedi - or maybe Tom Cruise in "Minority Report" - is gearing up for its launch later this year. Canadian company Thalmic Labs attracted millions of potential customers last February when it introduced a video for the Myo armband, which lets you control electronic devices with simple hand and arm gestures. The original video, which Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak called "very cool and impressive," is embedded below. Thalmic is venture backed and launched last February.
2 Reasons Smart People Don't Get Hired
June 12, 2014
Here's why your smartest friends probably have the biggest gaps on their resumes, despite having loads of relevant experience and pedigree educations.
Despite having "loads of relevant experience, lots of personality, and even pedigree educations," there's a good chance that your most brilliant, overachieving friends and acquaintances are those who have suffered the longest periods of unemployment, says Maurice Ewing, PhD, chief executive and founder of Conquer, in a recent LinkedIn post. Seems illogical, right?
Fasting For Two Days Could Regenerate the Immune System, According To Research
June 9, 2014
It's often used as a quick weight loss method - but fasting could also help the body to fight off disease. Refraining from food for as little as two days can regenerate the immune system, helping the body to fight infection, according to a new study.
Scientists at the University of Southern California said the findings could have major implications for the elderly and people suffering from damaged immune systems, such as cancer patients. Researchers tested the effects of fasting for two to four day periods over the course of six months on both mice and humans. In both cases, long periods of not eating significantly lowered white blood cell counts. And in mice, each cycle of fasting then "flipped a regenerative switch" that triggered stem cell-based regeneration of new white blood cells, thereby renewing the body's defence system.
This New Device Could Generate More Than Half of Your Home's Energy
June 5, 2014
While wind power is one of the cleanest sources of renewable energy in the world - and the top source for new U.S. electricity generation as of 2012 - many people still take issue with turbines and their noise.
Though some people living near turbines say that the low hum doesn't cause much trouble, others report daily annoyance, with some controversially linking the noise to physical ailments. But a Dutch company called Archimedes has set out to change that mindset by releasing the Liam F1 Urban Wind Turbine, a $5,400 model set to roll out next January. The company promises to boost efficiency and cut your electricity bill, while making little to no noise in the process.
