  • Non-smoking single mother, 36, who thought her cough was due to Covid is diagnosed with terminal lung cancer after being unable to see a GP face-to-face during lockdown

    A mother who has never smoked and blamed her persistent cough on Covid was devastated after learning she has terminal lung cancer. Becky Davis, 36, from Redditch, Worcestershire developed a cough at the start of 2020 but as the pandemic struck, became convinced she was suffering with Covid-19. The single mum was blindsided in July 2020 when doctors revealed that her symptoms were down to a rare form of cancer, which chemotherapy is not effective against. She desperately wants more time with her daughter Lexi, six, and is combining targeted therapy on the NHS with a form of specialist radiotherapy...

    A hardline judge has fined and ridiculed a 72-year-old Michigan man with lymphoma, ruling that he “should be ashamed” of being too weak to mow his overgrown lawn. Burhan Chowdhury of Hamtramck, a community about six miles north of Detroit, admittedly fell behind in yard maintenance after he was diagnosed with cancer of the lymph nodes in 2019. His overgrown property prompted local officials to subpoena Chowdhury. In now-viral footage of the Zoom court hearing on Jan. 10, Chowdhury’s breathing appeared labored as Judge Alexis G. Krot of the 31st District Court berated him. “You should be ashamed of yourself,”...
  • 'I am terrified': Woman who has a 'very dangerous' brain tumor sobs as she begs people to 'get vaccinated', revealing she cannot get lifesaving surgery to remove her mass because the hospital is full of COVID patients

    A woman with a 'very dangerous' brain tumor broke down in tears as she revealed she cannot get surgery to remove it despite doctors saying she needs the procedure ASAP — because the hospital is full of COVID patients. Amanda Harris, from Portland Oregon, found out she had a brain tumor in October 2021, and was told by her neurologist that she needed to get it surgically removed as soon as possible or it could cause 'irreparable harm' to her brain. Her doctors are not sure if the tumor is cancerous or not, but because it is 'pressed up against...
  • Cancer-Stricken Mom Gets Times Square Billboard to Help Daughter Find a Man

    Molly and Beth Davis agree that mother knows best. That includes when it comes to finding a man for daughter Molly — even if it takes a billboard in Times Square. Last week, mom Beth did just that, when a 47-foot-by-25-foot ad went up at the crossroads of the world, right above Tonic. “Date my daughter” it reads, with a photo of 30-year-old Molly and the URL for her dating profile. It’s all part of Beth’s quest “to know I am leaving her in good hands.” Beth, a 61-year-old from Boston, was first diagnosed with breast cancer in 2004 and...
  • Ron DeSantis to Critics Who Accused Him of Vacationing During Wife’s Cancer Treatments: ‘I Guess I Should Have Been at the Beach in Delaware’

    Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis (R) responded to critics Monday, including potential Democrat gubernatorial challenger Nikki Fried (D), who accused him of being absent when, in reality, he was attending his wife’s cancer treatments during the holiday break. “I guess I should have been at the beach in Delaware. They would have been really happy about that,” he quipped, referencing President Biden’s beach vacation. DeSantis noted that they put out a schedule as well, but his critics assume the governor is not doing anything if he is not holding a big press conference. On Wednesday, when there was nothing on the...

    A bit of good news as we kick off 2022. It turns out coffee is your friend. And it is very good for you, as first outlined in this report from 2017:A meta-analysis of 127 studies conducted in 2017 revealed that daily drinking two to four 8-ounce cups of coffee decreases risk of cancer by 20 percent, Type 2 diabetes by 30 percent, and Parkinson's by 30 percent. Furthermore, a huge study in the UK found that those who drink a LOT of coffee live longer than those who don't.Wow, that’s high praise; you would think that would be enough...

  • Eating Fruit on an Empty Stomach Does Not 'Cure Cancer', Experts Say

    Social media posts circulating in Indonesia claim that eating fruit on an empty stomach will "cure cancer". The claim has circulated online in the Southeast Asian nation since at least 2013. It also recently recirculated in French-speaking African countries. But experts told AFP there is no scientific evidence to support the claim. "EATING FRUIT ON AN EMPTY STOMACH," reads this Indonesian-language Facebook post published on November 26, 2021. "Dr STEPHEN MAK treats terminal cancer patients in a unique way. Many of the patients recovered. 'This is my strategy to cure cancer. The success rate is 80 percent,' said Mak." "Cancer...

    A potential vaccine that would prevent the most deadly and aggressive type of breast cancer — triple-negative breast cancer — is undergoing testing. The key protein for the vaccine, which would be a "holy grail" of cancer treatment, was found through "a matter of luck and tenacity in going through databases and looking for proteins," Dr. Vincent Tuohy said, almost like finding a needle in a haystack. The vaccine works by jumpstarting the immune system and attacking any tumors that contain a specific protein that should not be present unless a woman is lactating. "Once we've established that we can...

    When Roger Stone announced that his wife, Nydia, had cancer, one had every single right to wonder if Stone was telling the truth. After all, he also asked for donations to help them fight that very same cancer, and Stone was just coming off a year in which he had been found guilty of perjury. Most people might get the benefit of the doubt, it is cancer, after all. Stone… She’s cured! Stone writes “I can honestly say she’s cancer-free…” Does that mean that what he said before wasn’t honest? Just months after the fact. Not only is she cancer-free,...
  • For children, young adults with recurrent AML, immunotherapy shows promise

    An immunotherapy harnessing the immune system's "natural killer" cells has proven effective in treating acute myeloid leukemia (AML) in some adults whose cancers return. Now, researchers at Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis have shown, in a small clinical trial, that the same natural killer cells also can help some children and young adults with recurrent AML and few other treatment options. Results from the phase 1 trial, which included eight patients ages 1 to 30 years, are published online in the journal Blood. "All of the patients enrolled in this study had very aggressive AML," said first...

    Hosted by UK Column, last Friday Doctors for Covid Ethics (“D4CE”) held their second symposium, “Sounding the Call.” The symposium comprised 15 experts in science, medicine, finance, media, and the law who spoke as they should – freely and honestly.In September two pathologists, Prof. Arne Burkhardt and Prof. Walter Yang, released their findings of an investigation into ten deaths linked to Covid injections. “The lymphocytes are running amok in all organs,” Professor Yang said. During D4CE’s Symposium II, Prof. Burkhardt revealed the findings on 20 deaths post-injection which confirmed their previous findings. “This ‘lymphocytic amok’ is a very alarming finding,”...
  • First indirect evidence that PSMA PET/CT surpasses conventional imaging in detecting occult prostate cancer spread (“Game changer” now available)

    12/13/2021 7:40:28 PM PST · by ConservativeMind · 5 replies
    Researchers led a large international study providing what is believed to be the first evidence (albeit indirect) that a recently approved imaging technique improves risk-stratification and long-term prognostic capabilities for patients with high-risk prostate cancer whose conventional imaging showed only localized disease. "Our findings also suggest that previously undetected, non-localized disease may be the primary driver of outcomes in this high-risk population," said Dr. Amar Kishan Although early experience with PSMA PET/CT indicates it can detect low-volume, non-localized prostate cancer that is not seen with conventional imaging, direct, prospective evidence of its prognostic value is still several years away because...

    AbstractBackground Esophageal squamous cell carcinoma (ESCC) is the most predominant primary malignant tumor among worldwide, especially in China. To date, the successful treatment remains a mainly clinical challenge, it is imperative to develop successful therapeutic agents. Methods The anti-proliferative effect of ivermectin on ESCC is investigated in cell model and in nude mice model. Cell apoptosis was assessed using flow cytometry, TUNEL assay and western blotting. Mitochondrial dysfunction was determined by reactive oxygen species accumulation, mitochondrial membrane potential and ATP levels. ResultsOur results determined that ivermectin significantly inhibited the proliferation of ESCC cells in vitro and in vivo. Furthermore, we...

    AP News ^ | 12/7 | Carla K. Johnson
    Eight years ago, a team of researchers launched a project to carefully repeat early but influential lab experiments in cancer research. They recreated 50 experiments, the type of preliminary research with mice and test tubes that sets the stage for new cancer drugs. The results reported Tuesday: About half the scientific claims didn’t hold up. “The truth is we fool ourselves. Most of what we claim is novel or significant is no such thing,” said Dr. Vinay Prasad, a cancer doctor and researcher at the University of California, San Francisco, who was not involved in the project. It’s a pillar...

    Bob Dole heaped praise on President Trump for what he described as the restoration of "strong American leadership" put on display during his trip to Europe over the past few days. Calling it a "successful trip" overall, Dole, a former Republican senator from Kansas who ran unsuccessfully for president in 1996, singled out Trump's speech in Warsaw, Poland, as being particularly important. In a statement Saturday, Dole described the speech from Wednesday as "one for the ages, a vital, eloquent, and stirring articulation of the values and shared goals that bind us together with the Polish people, and with millions...

    RNC Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel appeared on CBS' "Face the Nation "on Sunday and called out the Presidential Debate Commission for their election interference.  "I think voters are very frustrated by the corrupt debate commission, that they would cancel a second debate," McDaniel told host Margaret Brennan. "I think it feeds in to the belief that this 47 years that Joe Biden has had in DC is again protecting him from facing the voters. And Americans are frustrated that this election commission interfered with our ability to see these two candidates debate."Brennan then repeated Democratic talking points, noting the existence of...

    Rep. Devin Nunes (R-CA) appeared on Fox News’ “Hannity” this week to discuss the origins of the Steele dossier. He said it should really be called the “Simpson” dossier. Although Christopher Steele likely contributed “stories” to the dossier, and his years of experience in British intelligence lent credence to the document, Nunes believes that Fusion GPS founder Glenn Simpson may actually have written the majority of it. In his book “Spygate,” journalist Dan Bongino makes the same case. He points out the striking similarities between articles Simpson and his wife, Mary Jacoby wrote for the Wall Street Journal in 2007...

    Donald Trump's call with Taiwanese President Tsai Ing-wen was organized by Bob Dole, a former Republican senator and the party's 1996 presidential nominee, The Wall Street Journal reports. Dole told the Journal that the law firm he is affiliated with does work with the Taipei Economic and Cultural Representative Office in the U.S. “It’s fair to say that we may have had some influence,” he said. Trump's Friday conversation broke decades of U.S. protocol. For several decades, the U.S. has followed the "One China" policy that doesn't acknowledge Taiwan as a nation, but instead goes along with China's view that...
