Globe-trotting pollutants raise some cancer risks 4 times higher than predicted

CORVALLIS, Ore. — A new way of looking at how pollutants ride through the atmosphere has quadrupled the estimate of global lung cancer risk from a pollutant caused by combustion, to a level that is now double the allowable limit recommended by the World Health Organization.

The findings, published this week in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences Early Edition online, showed that tiny floating particles can grow semi-solid around pollutants, allowing them to last longer and travel much ...

Why odds are against a large Zika outbreak in the US

Is the United States at risk for a large-scale outbreak of Zika or other mosquito-borne disease? While climate conditions in the U.S. are increasingly favorable to mosquitos, socioeconomic factors such as access to clean water and air conditioning make large-scale outbreaks unlikely, according to new analysis of existing research—but small-scale, localized outbreaks are an ongoing concern.

In their forthcoming paper in the Journal of Medical Entomology, “Factors of Concern Regarding Zika and Other Aedes aegypti-Transmitted Viruses in the United States,” Max ...

Charles K. Bens, Ph.D. – Preventing Cancer at the Molecular Level

There are six main causes of nearly all chronic illnesses, including cancer, and they are as follows:

  • Genes and genetic programming
  • Nutrition
  • Toxins/radiation
  • Stress
  • Lack of physical activity or a physical injury
  • Hormone imbalance

One of the most prevalent misconceptions about cancer is that it is usually caused by genetic factors. Jeffrey Bland, in his book, Genetic Nutritioneering, dispels this myth by providing scientific evidence that only 20-30% of chronic disease is attributed to genes. In the case of breast cancer, for example, only 5-10% of cases ...

Reynard Loki – Has Europe Been Right All Along to Renounce GE Crops?

In 1994, a tomato known as Flavr Savr became the first commercially grown genetically engineered food to be granted a license for human consumption. Scientists at the California-based company Calgene (which was scooped up by Monsanto a few years later) added a specific gene to a conventional tomato that interfered with the plant’s production of a particular enzyme, making it more resistant to rotting. The tomato was given the all-clear by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration.

Since then, ...

JULIE FIDLER – Women’s Cancer Deaths Expected To Climb 60% By 2030

The population of Denmark is roughly 5.5 million people, and that’s how many women are expected to die worldwide from cancer by 2030 – a 60% increase from 3.5 million deaths in 2012.

The sobering projection comes from a new report by the American Cancer Society (ACS) that was presented at the World Cancer Congress in Paris on November 1.

The World Health Organization (WHO) estimates that there were about 6.7 million new cancer cases in women worldwide in 2012. That ...

Aluminium Adjuvants Have Never Been Approved For Use In Vaccination

Within the first year of life, the CDC recommends that children receive a total of 29 vaccinations, many of which contain the adjuvant aluminum, a substance used in vaccinations to increase the immune response to the antigen (the component of the vaccine that stimulates the immune system to make antibodies). [1]

According to Professor Christopher Exley’s recent research, there are currently two main aluminum adjuvants commonly used in vaccinations today. These are AlHydrogel, a semi-crystalline (boehmite) form of aluminium oxyhydroxide and ...

Rohan Desai – Bill Gates’ Philanthropy: 30,000 Indian Girls Used as ‘Guinea Pigs’ to Test HPV Vaccine

What philanthropy has to do with vaccines, we would wonder, especially if the philanthropist is Bill Gates. The world’s richest man decided to give away the massive wealth he had amassed by selling computers. It was a philanthropy that the world had not witnessed earlier. Mr. Gates, with his wife Bellinda, built up the foundation that would dispense wealth to the poor: Africa, India and a host of other countries in need of ‘healthcare.’

Why was Bill Gates ...
