Cure for Cancer Discovered? DCA, Cheap Cure, Pharmaceutical Companies Block It (Video)

As there is NO profit in the New Cure, Big Pharma wont spend the money (100 Million) to get this drug through to the market.

How does DCA work, briefly?

The Michelakis team reports that DCA turns on the mitochondria of cancer cells, allowing them to commit cellular suicide, or apoptosis.

Cancer cells shut down the mitochondria, which is the part of the cell that is involved in metabolism and, incidentally, initiates the cell suicide.

A non-cancerous cell will initiate apoptosis when it detects damage within itself that it cannot repair. But a cancer cell resists the suicide process. That is why chemotherapy and radiation treatments do not work very well and actually result in terrible side effects… the healthy cells actually die much easier.

Michelakis and his team discovered that they could re-activate the mitochondria of cancer cells. Not only that, the DCA is very effective in doing it: To quote from the Michelakis paper: “The decrease in [Ca2+]i occurs within 5 min and is sustained after 48 hr of DCA exposure.” The mitochondria are so sensitive to DCA that just 5 minutes of exposure reactivates them for 48 hours.

Dichloroacetic acid, often abbreviated DCA, is the chemical compound with formula CHCl2COOH. It is an acid, an analogue of acetic acid, in which two of the three hydrogen atoms of the methyl group have been replaced by chlorine atoms. The salts and esters of dichloroacetic acid are called dichloroacetates. Salts of DCA have been studied as potential drugs because they inhibit the enzyme pyruvate dehydrogenase kinase.

Preliminary studies have shown DCA can slow the growth of certain tumors in animal studies.

Breaking: 37 communities vote to end artificial water fluoridation in 2011

Breaking: 37 communities vote to end artificial water fluoridation in 2011. Is your community on that list? With all the toxins in today’s drinking water it should be. ~ Health Freedoms

The year 2011 just might go down in history as the year that initiated the end of artificial water fluoridation. Nearly three million people living in 37 different North America communities will no longer be forcibly medicated with synthetic fluoride chemicals via their public water supplies, thanks to a groundswell of dedicated citizens and city council members that fought popular myths about fluoride with scientific truth — and won!

According to data compiled by the Fluoride Action Network (FAN), a group devoted to exposing the truth about the toxicity and dangers of fluoride chemicals, 37 cities and communities across the US and Canada officially ended their water fluoridation programs in 2011. From small towns like Tellico, Tenn., which has just 900 residents, to large cities like Calgary, Alberta, with over 1.3 million residents, the truth about fluoride is spreading like wildfire.

For far too long, water utilities mostly in the United States and in some parts of Canada have been adding toxic fluoride chemicals to drinking water supplies because they were told that doing so would help prevent tooth decay. It never really mattered to most of them that no scientific studies had ever proven that ingesting fluoride chemicals is safe, or that it helped improve oral health.

In fact, most of these utilities probably just went along with what they were told, and popular consensus seemed to agree at the time that lacing tap water with an unregulated drug, which just so happens to be a toxic waste byproduct of the aluminum and phosphate mining industries, was a good idea.

But a lot more information about fluoride has surfaced in recent years that contradicts what people believed about it 50 years ago. And with so many modern illnesses and deficiencies that are now attributed to fluoride exposure, removing the chemical from water supplies is a no-brainer for many who recognize that mass medication with an unapproved drug is not the answer to the world’s dental problems.

Witnessing these many victories against fluoride throughout the past year has been inspiring. But what is even better is the prospect that twice as many, or even three times as many — or more — could follow suit in 2012! The ball is rolling to end the pseudoscientific practice of water fluoridation, and the number of communities that still fluoridate their water supplies are falling. Will your community be next?


Breaking: Mystery illness gives 12 girls at same school Tourette’s-like symptoms of tics and verbal outbursts (video)

Mystery illness gives 12 girls at same school Tourette’s-like symptoms of tics and verbal outbursts

Doctors and school administrators will not disclose cause of illness
Parents worried and not satisfied with how issue is being handled
Two students at another school in Missouri faint after mystery smell reported

A mysterious disorder which exhibits symptoms similar to Tourette’s syndrome has affected twelve female students at the same high school.

Administrators said on Wednesday night that all of the students affected at LeRoy High School, in New York, have been diagnosed and are being treated but they would not disclose exactly what they think the cause is.

The students are said to all be suffering from verbal outbursts and involuntary twitches.

Tourette’s syndrome affects the body’s brain and nervous system by causing tics – repeated, uncontrollable movements or involuntary vocal sounds.

School administrators have insisted it is not a case of mass hysteria and that none of the girls are making the illness or symptoms up.

On Wednesday night the school held a forum for concerned parents. About 150 people attended, demanding to know what was wrong with the students.

Dr Greg Young, with the NYS Department of Health, said: ‘I can assure you these children have all been seen by professionals that have come up with answers and they are all being treated and they’re actually doing pretty well.’

He revealed that tics like this can be caused by a number of factors such as genetics, head trauma, drugs for ADHD and OCD and antihistamines.

Through tests over the last few months, they have been able to rule out a number of environmental factors, infections, illegal drugs and carbon monoxide poisoning.

According to, the Centers for Disease Control in Atlanta has been consulted, along with Columbia University, as well as the Genesee County Health Department and the New York State Health Department.

Dr Young assured parents that these cases have been seen nationwide and they come and go in individuals.

He said that stress and anxiety can make them worse.

But most parents were left frustrated due to HIPAA (federal health privacy laws) which meant the doctors were limited in telling them what was causing the symptoms.

Because of this and the limited number of cases in the small community, Dr Young said their hands were tied as they cannot comment on children’s diagnosis.

He said some of the students were already showing signs of improvement

Father of one of the students Jim DuPont said he is not satisfied with what the doctors or school administrators have told him.

He said his 17-year-old daughter has missed almost every day of school in the last month.

‘Now she has to be tutored,’ he told ‘And I worry about her future. She’s only 17. She can’t even drive now.

‘It’s heartbreaking because you know her normal mannerisms.’

He said his daughter is being treated by a neurologist, but still hasn’t received a diagnosis.

‘I’m talking about something that comes on in just a couple of weeks. These kids are totally normal, and the next thing you know their arms are swinging and they can’t control themselves.’


Alert! Los Angeles Rain Water is Radio Active!? – (Video)

RADIOACTIVE Los Angeles RAIN 11-6-11 evening


This stunning detection suggests radon progeny generated by continuing fissile re-criticality at the three melted down and out Fukushima nuclear reactors and perhaps additional radiation caused by the Japanese government’s decision to burn over 550,000 tons of radioactive waste in October, much of which will end up as fallout.

Pockets of lethal levels of radiation have been detected at Japan’s crippled Fukushima Daiichi nuclear plant in a fresh reminder of the risks faced by workers battling to contain the worst nuclear accident since Chernobyl.

New electric nagging bracelet might just might make you thin – Can a bracelet work to loose weight?

Jawbone are best known for their barely-there Bluetooth headsets – but their new product, the Up wristband, has much loftier goals.

The £80 wristband tracks your eating habits, sleep and exercise – syncing with an app in your phone to offer advice about how to be healthier.

From the moment it gets you up – by vibrating at the ‘best’ possible moment according to your sleep patterns – the machine monitors everything you do, prompting you to get up and move if you’ve been sat still, and even to ‘log’ everything you eat.

It’s like having a nagging personal trainer who never goes away, and never shut up.

It’s by no means the first health gadget to link with an app – there’s fitness monitors, sleep monitors, and even Bluetooth-enabled bathroom scales – but it’s the first one designed to live with you full-time.
We’re not sure HOW well the Up wristband goes with a cocktail dress – but the app it syncs with offers advice not only on exercise and sleep, but on what and how often you eat

We’re not sure HOW well the Up wristband goes with a cocktail dress – but the app it syncs with offers advice not only on exercise and sleep, but on what and how often you eat

Jawbone describe the Up as ‘attractive, durable, water-resistant and unobtrusive’ and suggests it can be worn with a cocktail dress as easily as with gym kit.

Inside is a motion sensor which stores steps, calories burned, distance, and active versus inactive time – the machine even nags you for sitting down too long.

The motion sensor even tracks you while you sleep – tracking your movement to gauge when you fall asleep, how long it takes you, and how much deep sleep you’re getting.

If that wasn’t enough, the iPhone app then prompts you to take a photo of every meal, and tracks where, when and what you’ve eaten.

A ‘Feed’ screen on your phone then offers an up-to-date stream of information about what you’re doing with respect to your health.

The wristband doesn’t just watch, though.

Once it’s decided your sleep patterns, it vibrates at the best possible moment in your sleep cycle so you can get up feeling as refreshed as possible.

It will also remind you to ‘get up and move’ if you’ve been inactive for too long – certain to make you popular with your boss.

It also links with online ‘health challenges’ to set you tasks to achieve during the week.

Bombshell! Autism is 5 times more common among low birth weight babies

Babies born with low birth weight is five times more likely than the general population is diagnosed with some form of autism, new research shows.

The study is the first in the United States to examine the prevalence of autism diagnoses in the smallest babies. Advances in medicine have helped more lower birth weight babies to survive, so the results may help to explain the increase in people diagnosed with autism disorder, the researchers said.

Premature infants are often born low birth weight, although the full-term baby may also be in order.

Researchers at the University of Pennsylvania, Department of Nursing and the School of Medicine identified 1105 children who weighed less than 4 pounds, 6.5 ounces (2000 grams) at birth who were born October 1, 1984, and 03 July 1989.

Sixteen years later, the researchers were able to achieve 623 of those children, and used a questionnaire to screen the autism spectrum disorders.

When the 189 children turned 21 years of age, 60 percent of those screened positive for autism spectrum disorder, and 24 percent of those who screened negative were clinically diagnosed condition. Overall, the number of autism spectrum disorders one of the participants, who have low birth weight was five times higher than the general population.

Autistic problems
People with disorders are difficult to communicate, difficulty interacting in social situations, and restrictive or repetitive interests, said study co-author Jennifer Pinto-Martin, a researcher at the University of Pennsylvania School of Nursing and the School of Medicine.

Those with a mild autism spectrum disorders, such as people with Asperger’s syndrome, “may just want to talk about one subject,” Pinto-Martin said. “They are fully functional. They can go to college. Be able to go to work.”

The lower activity of people with autism spectrum can be no social interaction at all. “You can see them sitting in a corner, rocking back and forth,” Pinto-Martin said.

Scientists believe that the brain hemorrhaging and bruising associated with low birth weight or premature infants could explain the higher autism spectrum disorders.

“The first hypothesis is that it is linked to brain development,” Pinto-Martin said. “Preemies is something called the neonatal brain damage. In some cases, it is just like a bruise, and does not really make any difference. In other cases, there are more long-term effect.”

Medical interventions that keep premature babies alive could also play a role, Pinto-Martin said. “Keep them alive, a lot of technology involved,” he said. “They are the machines that help them breathe. They are a lot of drugs.”

“Quantity premature birth and early survival has increased dramatically,” he continued. “It may well be that because we are better to keep these preemies alive, we will create an increased incidence of autism.”

Could a better prenatal care reduces the incidence of autism?
The study confirms what doctors have known for a premature birth and autism, said Dr. Craig Erickson chief Christian Sarkine Autism Treatment Center at Indiana University School of Medicine. Autism may be more likely to develop after premature birth together with other factors such as environment and genetic predisposition, he said.

“It is not surprising, that would be a risk factor for autism,” he said. “The nice thing about this study is that they had a long follow-up period. By [21 years], you really know if people have autism or not.”

Next, the researchers hope to compare brain images of low birth weight babies in the investigation. Head ultrasounds are now routine for premature babies, Pinto-Martin said. “The first thing we do is go back and look at interest rates of brain injury and brain hemorrhage the entire cohort,” he said.

According to the study needed not only to better prenatal care to reduce the number of premature babies, but also the need for early diagnosis and intervention for autism. “Some of these young adults, thanked us when we gave them a diagnosis,” Pinto-Martin said. “They said:” I’ve always felt weird and I do not know why. “It was very moving for us.”

Sniffing Out Lung Cancer – Dogs May Hold the Clue to Early Detection (video)


Trained canines could one day help to moderate the rate of death from lung cancer with the help of their keen sense of smell definitely. A study published in the European Respiratory Journal found that four dogs, two German shepherds, an Australian shepherd and a Labrador were 71 percent accurate in detecting lung cancer at an early stage.

German researchers at the hospital in samples from Germany Schillerhoehe breath collected from 220 volunteers, 110 healthy individuals, 60 with lung cancer and 50 with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). The volunteers breathed into a tube filled with wool that has absorbed any fragrance available. After nine months of training, the dogs have learned to sniff the tubes and sit in front of the sample in which the odor of lung cancer were detected.

The researchers suggest that tumors produce volatile organic compounds (VOCs) that canines are capable of common sense, despite all the conflicting smells of tobacco, food or even of COPD. The only problem is that they were unable to determine which chemicals are the production of these distinct smells. Moreover, the fact that humans are incapable of VOC sense makes it more difficult for researchers to be exact to determine this.

Studies on the ability of dogs to detect cancer date back to 1989. Although the results were not always consistent, previous research has provided evidence for the early detection dog by the senses of several other cancers as well, including the bladder, colon, breast and skin .

Their help in the detection of lung cancer is enormous, given the challenges the doctors had to diagnose patients early enough to provide effective treatments. According to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control (CDC), more people die of lung cancer than any other cancer. This is largely because the symptoms of lung cancer are not just distinct enough to assume the risk of a patient. In fact, everyone is different and at least 25 percent of lung cancer patients do not even have recognizable symptoms.

If further research finds success in identifying the sources of VOCs such, doctors are hopeful that something like an “electronic nose” may be developed for use in hospitals. In turn, leading to higher rates of early detection, early treatment and ultimately, fatal accidents and less.

Dogs were used to sniff drugs, dead bodies, bombs and more for decades. Some breeds have more than 200 million olfactory receptors, which are responsible for detecting molecules of odor. Humans have only 5 million. Their capabilities are extremely valuable for science and medicine, to say the least.

The next step for researchers is to determine what and how these dogs are detecting and create a practical device that will also benefit of all humanity. You know what they say, a dog is the best friend of a man. In this case, they could very well be an important part of the rescue force of mankind


NC bill threatens to criminalize naturopaths, homeopaths, herbalists, midwives, aromatherapists as felons

(NaturalNews) Alternative health practitioners in North Carolina (NC) and their patients need your help to defeat a stealth bill that flew under the radar of most everyone in the natural health community.


Senate Bill 31, which clarifies the penalties for the “unauthorized practice of medicine,” essentially criminalizes the practice of unlicensed forms of medicine, which includes the work of many naturopaths, homeopaths, herbalists, aromatherapists, and even some midwives in the state. The bill was adopted by a judiciary committee in early March, and it recently passed the NC Senate. Now, the NC House is set to vote on the bill tonight, and unless NC governor Bev Perdue vetoes it, the practice of natural medicine for many in NC may soon become a more severe criminal offense.

SB 31 states that anyone who practices medicine or surgery without having been first “licensed and registered to do so” will be guilty of a Class I felony. Class I felonies in NC are the least severe kinds of felonies, but they do include things like burning crosses on private or public property, and sexually exploiting children. So if passed, SB 31 will essentially make those who practice alternative medicine without an official, state-sanctioned license and permit, criminals of the likes of sexual predators and cross burners.

You can read the short bill for yourself at the following link:

Proponents of the bill say it fixes a loophole in the current law that classifies out-of-state practitioners who practice without a license as Class I felons, while in-state practitioners who practice without a license are only guilty of a Class I misdemeanor. But what the bill actually appears to do is make it even harder for alternative practitioners who literally cannot be licensed in NC because their work is not “approved,” to practice at all. After all, who is going to be willing to provide alternative medical services for consenting patients when doing so makes them a felon?

SB 31 is really just another way to target alternative practitioners and reign in the practice of medicine to only that which has been approved by the government overlords. And the timeline for defeating this bill is very short. Alternative practitioners in NC, and those who safely and successfully use their services, need your help now to successfully defeat this bill.

Citizens for Healthcare Freedom (CHF), a nonprofit health freedom organization in NC, says the bill is “not in the interest of the citizens of North Carolina” because it affects many alternative practitioners who will be put out of business if it passes. The vast majority of these practitioners have been practicing for years, and they have helped thousands of patients over the years using methods not officially sanctioned by state medical boards

The NC House is set to debate and vote on SB 31 at 7:00 pm tonight. And whether or not you live in NC, this bill contributes to setting a precedent of intolerance for natural and alternative medicine, so it is important to oppose it regardless of whether or not you live in NC.

You can reach the NC House to oppose the bill by calling (919) 733-7928.

You can reach Governor Bev Perdue’s Raleigh office by calling (919) 733-4240.

Remember, when contacting government officials to express your thoughts, always be respectful, but firm in your discourse. Clearly and succinctly express opposition to SB 31 on the grounds that it further erodes health freedom in NC by criminalizing those who practice alternative medicine. Also, urge support for the CHF Consumer Health Freedom Act, which establishes the freedom to practice alternative medicine without criminal penalty

Alert! Deadly Superbug In Southern California Health Care Facilities

According to a new reports, a deadly strain of bacteria thought to be rare on the West Coast is appearing in large numbers in Southern California.

The Los Angeles County Department of Health has reported 356 cases of carbapenem-resistant Klebsiella pneumoniae (CRKP) in seven months last year.


Previous outbreaks in other states show a 35% death rate. There is only one anti-biotic that can work on infected people, but carries harmful side effects.

This is the first time CRKP has been observed in the Los Angeles area with an “unexpectedly high” infection rate found exclusively in health care facilities like hospitals or nursing homes.

It doesn’t sound like officials know much about this mysterious rise in infections from the bacteria either, as study authors said:

“We do not know if the presence of CRKP in these long-term acute care settings is the result of improper care, or has more to do with the population they serve.”

Q: What is CRKPP?

A: CRKP stands for carbapenem-resistant Klebsiella pneumoniae, which simply means that the bacterium — which is a “gram negative” type bacteria that is related to common organisms found in the gastrointestinal tract like E. coli — is resistant to carbapenems, a type of antibiotic that until recently was the “antibiotic of last resort.” Sometimes it still is, but not always. Previously, carbapenems would work against bacteria like Klebsiella pneumoniae that were resistant to every other type of antibiotic.

Bacteria have been developing resistance almost as quickly as we’ve been able to develop new antibiotics.

Q: How does CRKP’s drug resistance work?

CRKP strains contain enzymes that destroy the carbapenem. The huge problem, though, is the company that [CRKP] keeps. They are alongside other bacteria that are already multidrug resistant and they contain genetic elements, pieces of DNA, that can be transferred to those other bacteria. [That is], Klebsiella pneumoniae can transfer the genetic material of their resistance and have already done so in the case of E. coli hospital-associated infections.

Gram-negative [bacteria] are more difficult to treat with antibiotics even without being drug resistant because they have more structural challenges. For example, they have two outer membranes, so antibiotics have to get through two separate barriers to target them effectively. They also contain multiple efflux pumps that pump out toxic substances, such as antibiotics.

Q: When did CRKP first emerge?

A: I’ve known about these organisms for 10 years or so. They first surfaced in North Carolina, caused a big problem in New York, in Manhattan. They’d already spread to California; they are nothing new to California. There just seem to be increased instances of infection, so we’re hearing about it [now].

Q: How can we avoid CRKP infection?

A: Stay out of the hospital and nursing homes! No, you can’t do that. It isn’t what you have to do so much as what the hospitals have to do. First, they need to identify these organisms, send cultures to reputable laboratories. And then the next step is to follow the CDC’s standard isolation techniques: quarantine those infected, take contact precautions by wearing gowns and gloves and practicing hand washing. And, by the way, we’re talking about major, very good, university-affiliated hospitals [with these problems].

Are you likely to go out and get infected on the street? Chances are low. But the reason [these bugs] are so frightening is because they spread and mutate, so that now many of them [including CRKP] are susceptible only to [the antibiotic] colistin, which is very toxic and causes kidney damage. Some have even become resistant to that, and then there are very few lines of defense. So with the mutation of the bacteria coupled with the decline in new drugs, you can see we are headed toward collision.
