Natural ginger is up to 10,000 times more effective than chemotherapy drugs at treating cancer, study shows

Ginger naturally contains a compound that is up to 10,000 times more effective than chemotherapy drugs at killing the cancer stem cells that make malignant tumors so dangerous, according to a study published in the journal PLoS.

The chemical, known as 6-shogaol, is produced when ginger roots are dried or cooked. The researchers found that 6-shogaol is active against cancer stem cells at concentrations that are harmless to healthy cells. This is dramatically different from conventional chemotherapy, which has serious side effects largely because it kills healthy as well as cancerous cells.

Cells responsible for 90 percent of cancer death?

Like other stem cells, cancer stem cells possess the ability to differentiate into various different cell types. In the case of cancer, stem cells differentiate into the various malignant cells that make up a tumor colony. Although they make up less than 1 percent of the cells in any given tumor, stem cells are impervious to nearly all known or experimental chemotherapy agents. These cells are also able to replicate indefinitely, and they are capable of splitting off from their originating colony to start new tumors elsewhere. They are key players in the process of metastasis, which is responsible for 90 percent of cancer-related deaths.

The Transhumanism Fantasy is a Failure for Humanity

The Transhumanism Fantasy is a Failure for Humanity

Darwin once called humans living, self-replicating machines. While it is true that we are divided from the rest of the animal kingdom due to our ability to discern the scent of a rose from a peony, and have emotions that either enflame us or calm our minds, completely isolated from purely environmental stimuli, our humanness has been overlooked, often dismissed even, as an evolutionary stumbling block, not the gift that it truly is. This, perhaps, is the philosophical error which has led to the belief that we need to be something more than human – trans-human – with adapted parts like a robot, or machine, rather than an ever-evolving, biological encasing of energy, ideas, and spirituality that will, in its own time, realize its perfect nature.

The idea of transhumanism completely blurs the lines between machine and (wo)man. Utilizing cloning, nanotechnology, genetic engineering, and more, people in support of this dangerous movement could arguably practice genetic cleansing that would make Nazi Germany or the ethnic ‘washing’ of Bosnian Muslims, Polynesians, Serbo-Coratians, Syrians, Native Americans, etc. look like a parlor trick.

There is a scene in the movie, The Matrix, which tries to visually blur these lines even more so. Neo, played by Keanu Reeves, emerges from a machine-made ‘womb’ and his only intended purpose is to provide energy to the technologically ‘advanced’ society from which he eventually tries to exit.

Twilight of the Idols: How Celebrities Kill the Paris Debacle

Twilight of the Idols: How Celebrities Kill the Paris Debacle

You’ve got to love celebrities. They crack you up sometimes. They are able to live in both the rational and irrational worlds at the same time and in the same respect. The first lesson you learn in philosophy or any serious subject such as math is that contradictory statements prove that something is wrong.

Celebrities seem to believe that they are living in a different dimension, where irrationality becomes logical and contradictory statements are reasonable. This never ceases to amaze me.

The Paris debacle once again proves to be a complete disaster for celebrities who pretentiously say that they cherish all life. More recently, celebrities have gone to great length condemning whatever they think happened in Paris. The list of those celebrities is almost endless:

Vice President Joe Biden, Hillary Clinton, Bernie Sanders, Ben Carson, Donald Trump, LeBron James, Jake T. Austin, Guillermo del Toro, Kourtney Kardashian, Pete Davidson, Victoria Justice, Rowan Blanchard, John Isner, Christina Milian, Rachel Zoe, Back Street Boys, Mark Hamill, Kevin Jonas, Shannen Doherty, Zachari Levi, Sophia Bush, Amanda Seales, Lelia Broussard, Chris Pratt, Dr. Phil, Blink 182, Carole King, Amy Schumer, Ellen DeGeneres, Emma Watson, Rashida Jones, Chris Rock, Katy Perry, etc.[1]

Listen to Bono here, as he explains the situation:

“This is the first direct hit on music that we’ve had in this so-called war on terror or whatever it’s called. It’s very upsetting. These are our people. This could be me at a show. You at a show, in that venue. It’s a very recognizable situation for you and for me, and the coldblooded aspect of this slaughter is deeply disturbing and that’s what I can’t get out of my head.”[2]

Chickenpox vaccine now causing shingles epidemic in children and adults

Chickenpox vaccine now causing shingles epidemic in children and adults

The rate of shingles has been increasing since the 1990s, and it is now estimated that about one in three adults will develop the disease in their lifetime. A certain number of these people will experience recurring outbreaks. About one in five of them will suffer severe and often debilitating pain known as postherpetic neuralgia (PHN).

Officially, the cause of this increase is unknown. Yet studies suggest that at least part of the explanation could be the chickenpox vaccine.

Chickenpox and shingles are caused by the same virus, which is known as varicella zoster. Shingles cannot occur in someone who has not been previously been infected with the virus, presumably resulting in a chickenpox infection. Why, then, would the vaccine against this virus be causing more severe outbreaks later in life?

French Jews Warned Friday Morning of ‘Impending Large Terrorist Attack’

French Jews Warned Friday Morning of ‘Impending Large Terrorist Attack’

Intelligence in the lead-up to Friday evening’s terrorist attacks in Paris was not nearly so scarce as had initially been indicated, and several nations, including Iraq and Israel, appear to have been passing France intelligence on the matter in the days leading up to the attack.

According to the Times of Israel, French Jewish security officials were informed of an “impending large terrorist attack” in France on Friday morning, There was considerable speculation in the lead-up that France’s Jewish community would be among the targets.

Ultimately, this appears not to have been the case, though the community notes that the Bataclan, the site of the massive hostage-taking, was until very recently Jewish-owned, and has repeatedly been the site of both IDF fundraisers and anti-Israel protests, raising speculation that this made the target higher-profile for ISIS.
