Jimmy Keller and Cancer Cures

This is another man who has worked to treat and cure cancer. He tells a bit about his story and what he has done.

This man was diagnosed with cancer, and had cancer surgery to remove tumors from his ear and other structures that were near it (i.e., lymph nodes, neck muscles, etc.).  He was told that all the cancer was removed, but he later found more tumor growths on his head.  The physicians told him that chemotherapy and radiation would not work on his form of melanoma.  At that point, he declined to undergo further conventional cancer treatments.

Big Pharma Research-Marketing Dressed Up as Science

There are various people who describe the extent to which Big Pharma has infested the entire medical research process, as well as the regulatory function.  It has devolved into a big circus where the ringmasters and workers all share in the profits, all at the expense of the audience and the joke is on the unwitting patients who actually think that they are being given the most advanced, benevolent, modern medical care available.  This is obviously not the case.

Before 1980, most drug research was performed by university professors.  After 1991, the drug studies were starting to be performed by Big Pharma companies.  It was either performed by their employed scientists, or was funded by pharmaceutical companies.  There is one glaring problem with this arrangement.  This put the entire research process under the control of Big Pharma companies that stood to gain from releasing their drugs on schedule, and with no obstacles such as pesky toxicity and bad side effects.

Chemicals in the Drinking Water

I found an excellent, but disturbing story on a chemical that is a weed killer (atrazine). The chemical is being found in drinking water. The problem is that the companies that manufacture this chemical are also the ones who are paying for the studies that the EPA is using to evaluate its safety! Talk about a major conflict of interest!
The vast majority of the studies that the EPA is using to determine whether or not this chemical is dangerous are industry-funded studies that have not been peer-reviewed.  More alarming is the fact that the independent studies that have demonstrated some potentially toxic effects of this chemical are not being included in the EPA’s evaluation process.  Many of these independent studies have been published in peer-reviewed scientific journals.

Bisphenol A-Safe or Harmful?

The safety of Bisphenol A (BPA) has been a contentious issue for a long time.  It is a very important question because this chemical is in a huge number of our food products and containers.  It is in just about any plastic container that is clear, such as plastic water bottles.  It is in virtually all metal can linings.  It is also in cups, baby bottles, children’s products, eyeglasses, sports equipment, medical and dental devices, dental fillings & sealants, household electronics, etc.  Because it is so common, it is said that 93% of people have BPA in their bodies.
