Organic nanoparticles make cancer cell destruction easier

Posted on Jul 1, 2015 in Medical Rewind, Technology

Listen to what Dr. Rashid A. Buttar and Robert Scott Bell have to say about this article on the May 18th Medical Rewind Show ***************************** Using carbon-based nanoparticles instead of rare metals could increase damage to cancer cells while harming fewer healthy cells, according to a new study. FRANKFURT, Germany, May 18 (UPI) — Radiotherapy is used in treatment for roughly half of all treatments for cancer, but it’s flawed because it affects all cells in an area of the body rather than just cancer cells. Scientists now believe that using carbon-based nanoparticles...

Lost Memories Could Be Restored In Alzheimer’s Patients, According To A Snail

Posted on Feb 4, 2015 in Chronic Disease, Heavy Metals, Technology, Vaccines

New research suggests lost memories could potentially be restored in Alzheimer’s patients, and a small snail species helped scientists prove it. Scientists have long-believed memories are stored at the synapses (the connections between brain cells) which are broken down  by Alzheimer’s disease, but a new study suggests this is not necessarily true, UCLA reported. “Long-term memory is not stored at the synapse,” said David Glanzman, a senior author of the study, and a UCLA professor of integrative biology and physiology and of neurobiology. “That’s a...

37 Million Bees Found Dead In Ontario, Canada After Planting Large GMO Corn Field

Posted on Dec 31, 2014 in Environment, Health Optimization, News, Technology

Millions of bees dropped dead after GMO corn was planted few weeks ago in Ontario, Canada. The local bee keeper, Dave Schuit who produces honey in Elmwood lost about 37 million bees which are about 600 hives. “Once the corn started to get planted our bees died by the millions,” Schuit said. While many bee keepers blame neonicotinoids, or “neonics.” for colony collapse of bees and many countries in EU have banned neonicotinoid class of pesticides, the US Department of Agriculture fails to ban insecticides known as neonicotinoids, manufactured by Bayer CropScience Inc. Two of Bayer’s...

Bionic pancreas frees people from shackles of diabetes

Posted on Jul 7, 2014 in Medical Rewind, Technology

Ed Damiano’s son was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes in 2000. He was 11 months old. Damiano, a biomedical engineer, decided to create a device that would help his child and millions of others better manage their disease. He set a goal of having it ready by the time his son went to college. Results from the latest clinical trials of his smartphone-linked artificial pancreas suggest he might just make that deadline. Type 1 diabetes occurs when beta islet cells in the pancreas die off. These cells sense levels of blood sugar, aka glucose, in the blood and secrete the necessary amount of...

Genetically engineered super-banana could save millions of lives

Posted on Jul 5, 2014 in Medical Rewind, Technology

Malnutrition is a problem across large swaths of the globe, but it’s a difficult problem to solve. It’s not only a matter of people getting enough to eat; they need to have the right combination of food as well. People in developing countries often subside on a very limited diet, which can lead to life-threatening vitamin deficiencies. Surprisingly, a genetically modified (GM) super-banana backed by the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation might be a key weapon in the fight against malnutrition. Yeah, it’s not as sexy as the Gates-backed condoms. So what makes it “super?” This banana is...
