Obama cures cancer!

Well, you just know the sycophantic media will find a way to give credit to him …

This is an article from Fox News …

“Researchers might have found the Holy Grail in the war against cancer, a miracle drug that has killed every kind of cancer tumor it has come in contact with, the New York Post reported.

The drug works by blocking a protein called CD47 that is essentially a “do not eat” signal to the body’s immune system, according to Science Magazine.

With this observation in mind, the researchers built an antibody that blocked cancer’s CD47 so that the body’s immune system attacked the dangerous cells.

So far, researchers have used the antibody in mice with human breast, ovary, colon, bladder, brain, liver and prostate tumors transplanted into them. In each of the cases the antibody forced the mice’s immune system to kill the cancer cells.

Steven Milloy’s Lawsuit vs the EPA

“Either the EPA has needlessly endangered the lives of uninformed participants in a worthless experiment or they have knowingly lied for years about the dangers of airborne particulate matter. In either case, the American people deserve answers and accountability.”

Scandalous. Shocking. It’s hard to find exactly the right description for the actions of the EPA, as outlined in the lawsuit filed by Steven Milloy

Writing at FrontPage.com, Arnold Ahlert says that EPA deliberately exposed human beings to “airborne particulate matter the agency itself considers lethal.”

“That EPA administrator Lisa Jackson permitted this heinous experimentation to occur under her watch shocks the conscience,” said Milloy.

As they say, read it all.

Very cool indeed

Woo Hoo!

An interesting comment from “Have your say” at BBC News

I work as a resident doctor in one of the biggest hospitals in Mexico City and sadly, the situation is far from “under control”. As a doctor, I realise that the media does not report the truth. Authorities distributed vaccines among all the medical personnel with no results, because two of my partners who worked in this hospital (interns) were killed by this new virus in less than six days even though they were vaccinated as all of us were. The official number of deaths is 20, nevertheless, the true number of victims are more than 200. I understand that we must avoid to panic, but telling the truth it might be better now to prevent and avoid more deaths.

Breakthrough battery can charge up in seconds

Scientists in the United States have invented a battery that can charge in seconds, promising a revolution in power storage that could also help green cars and renewable energy.

The advance allows lithium-ion batteries, the standard variety used in consumer electronics and cells for electric or hybrid vehicles, both to charge and discharge stored energy more quickly than at present.

This should lead to smaller, lighter batteries for mobile phones and other devices, which can be fully charged when plugged in for a few seconds.

Lithium-ion batteries that can be recharged in a fraction of the time … this is truly a game changer.  Imagine an electric vehicle that can be re-charged in minutes, rather than hours.  This new process effectively removes the greatest obstacle to widespread acceptance of electric vehicles.

Scientists at M.I.T. say that the new batteries could be ready within 2 or 3 years.

Medical Madoff: Data Faked in 21 Studies

Over the past 12 years, anesthesiologist Scott Reuben revolutionized the way physicians provide pain relief to patients undergoing orthopedic surgery for everything from torn ligaments to worn-out hips. Now, the profession is in shambles after an investigation revealed that at least 21 of Reuben’s papers were pure fiction, and that the pain drugs he touted in them may have slowed postoperative healing.

“We are talking about millions of patients worldwide, where postoperative pain management has been affected by the research findings of Dr. Reuben,” says Steven Shafer, editor in chief of the journal Anesthesia & Analgesia, which published 10 of Reuben’s fraudulent papers.

The fraudulent data resulted in the sale of billions of dollars of COX2 inhibitors, including Vioxx, and Celebrex.  Anesthesia & Analgesia editors say in hindsight, “it should have been a “red flag” that Reuben’s studies were consistently favorable to the drugs he studied.”

It seems to be a sign of the times that red flags have been continuously ignored for years in many fields of commerce.

Former Member Of Pfizer Speaker Bureau Accused Of Research Fraud

“A former member of Pfizer Inc.’s speakers’ bureau who helped pioneer new pain treatments that combined two of the company’s major products has been accused of perpetrating one of the biggest research frauds in medical history.

Dr. Scott S. Reuben, an anesthesiologist on the staff at Baystate Medical Center in Springfield, Mass., is currently on medical leave and has been stripped of any research or educational duties for at least 10 years, according to a story first reported in Anesthesiology News.”
