Vitamin C breakthrough discovery: Low-cost nutrient halts growth of cancer stem cells… 1000% more effective than cancer ...Vitamin C breakthrough discovery: Low-cost nutrient halts growth of cancer stem cells… 1000% more effective than cancer drug… peer-reviewed science confirms powerful effects
An exciting medical breakthrough published in the science journal Oncotarget has discovered the astonishing ability of concentrated vitamin C to halt the growth of cancer tumor stem cells.
The study, conducted at the University of Salford in Manchester — (see full text of the study at this link) — tested the impact on cancer stem cell metabolism for seven substances:
Three natural substances, including vitamin C
Three experimental pharmaceuticals
One clinical drug currently in widespread use
The study’s astonishing results reveal “the first evidence that Vitamin C (ascorbic acid) can be used to target and kill cancer stem cells (CSCs), the cells responsible for fuelling fatal tumours,” reports the flagship science publisher Alpha Galileo.
Vitamin C found to work up to 10 times better than a cancer pharmaceutical
Led by Michael P. Lisanti and Gloria Bonuccelli, the study results astonished researchers when it found that vitamin C worked up to 10 times better than a pharmaceutical cancer drug at interfering with cancer stem cell metabolism, effectively shutting down cancer tumors’ ability to process cellular energy for survival and growth.
“Vitamin C is cheap, natural, non-toxic and readily available so to have it as a potential weapon in the fight against cancer would be a significant step,” said Dr. Michael P. Lisanti, Professor of Translational Medicine at the University of Salford, in the Alpha Galileo summary of his research. It goes on to report:
Vitamin C has previously been shown to be effective as a non-toxic anti-cancer agent in studies by Nobel Prize winner Linus Pauling and was recently shown to reduce mortality by 25% on breast cancer patients in Japan. However, its effects on CSC activity have not been previously evaluated and in this context, it behaves as an inhibitor of glycolysis, which fuels energy production in mitochondria, the “powerhouse” of the cell.
Rand Paul predicts Ryan-backed Obamacare replacement legislation will be pulled before Thursday voteRand Paul predicts Ryan-backed Obamacare replacement legislation will be pulled before Thursday vote
Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul, one of a number of GOP lawmakers opposed to the American Health Care Act, has predicted there won’t be enough votes to pass it, causing it to be withdrawn and forcing Republican leaders to start over. The AHCA is the bill touted by House Speaker Paul Ryan, R-Wis., and backed by President Donald J. Trump and Vice President Mike Pence, that has been proposed as the Republican alternative to the Affordable Care Act.
In an interview with Breitbart News, Paul – who has dubbed the AHCA “Obamacare Lite,” while other conservatives have dubbed it “RyanCare,” “RINO-Care,” and “Obamacare 2.0” – has been vocally critical of the legislation. The senator notes it does not fully repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act, which is what Republicans and the president promised voters.
He has said that the AHCA, which Ryan has said is merely the first in a three-phase repeal-and-replace effort, leaves in place many of the worst elements of Obamacare. The Ryan-led effort has come under severe criticism from the most conservative lawmakers, many of whom have vowed to oppose it unless major changes are made first.

“I think there’s easily 35 ‘no’ votes right now so unless something happens in the next 24 hours, I would predict they pull the bill and start over,” Paul told Breitbart, regarding Republican votes in the House. Currently, there are 237 Republicans in the House compared with 193 Democrats and five vacancies (four of the GOP seats of lawmakers who left to join the Trump administration). In a full House (435 members), a 218-vote majority is needed to advance legislation to the Senate.
Breitbart noted that in order to kill the legislation, just 21 Republican “no” votes are needed.
“I think if conservatives stick together, they will have earned a seat at the table where real negotiation to make this bill an acceptable bill will happen. But it’s interesting ...
President Donald J. Trump has signed legislation aimed at funding the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA), in what may become a down payment on a future manned mission to Mars.
As reported by The Hill, the bill’s authors and sponsors – including Sens. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, and Marco Rubio, R-Fla. – were in attendance in the Oval Office for the signing.
Known as the NASA Transition Authorization Act, the law provides the space agency with 19.5 billion in funding for fiscal year 2018, while requesting that the agency come up with a plan to send a “crewed mission to Mars in the 2030s.” Trump only requested $19.1 billion, which was a modest funding cut, but he wound up signing a larger funding measure.
The legislation also asks NASA to develop ways to “extend human presence, including potential human habitation on another celestial body and a thriving space economy in the 21st century.”
Manned missions to the moon took place in the late 1960s and early 1970s with the Apollo missions, but no manned celestial travel has occurred since. Beginning in the 1980s and stretching into the 2000s, the U.S. conducted several manned Space Shuttle missions and helped build and support the International Space Station, which is still manned. (RELATED: Read 7 “Earthlike” Planets Just Under 40 Light Years Away; Could Hold Life.)
But sending a manned mission to another planet – Mars, in this case – with the aim of colonizing it at some point, is a major step forward, both for human civilization and for NASA.
The current funding legislation may wind up being a down payment on that future mission, if the technology can be developed to make it happen.
While interstellar travel may not happen anytime soon, there is some push from an unlikely source to return to and colonize the moon first – from Amazon owner Jeff Bezos. He has been lobbying the Trump administration to begin unmanned cargo missions to the moon by 2020, with the goal of eventually constructing living quarters and sending humans there.

The noose around the neck of FBI’s James Comey career is tightening. It is amazing that he is still the Director of the FBI. The following contains a multitude of allegations against Comey and anyone of them should be grounds for removal from office followed by criminal prosecution.
( Article by Dave Hodges from TheCommonSenseShow.com )
Comey and Obstruction of Justice
Last fall, Fox News further confirmed that a congressional source confirmed that the House Government Oversight Committee had received a heavily redacted FBI summary of Hillary Clinton’s session last month with FBI agents who interviewed her about her use of a private server for government business. Heavily redacted? What right does Comey have to thumb his nose to a Congressional Inquiry by redacting evidence requested by Congress? Why would Comey do such a thing? The answer to that question can best be summed up as “Birds of a feather, flock together”. Or, perhaps, Ben Franklin put it more accurately:
On the surface, Comey’s previous refusal to fully cooperate with Congress seems inexplicable at this point, unless you consider the character and lack of integrity of James Comey. If the Clintons are Bonnie and Clyde, then Comey is John Dillinger.
Comey’s Skeletons Are Getting Exposed
How does a man with absolutely no law enforcement experience become the head of the most modern crime fighting organization in the United States? The simple answer is, Comey is complicit in Hillary Clinton’s aerial criminality.
While serving in the capacity of FBI Director, Comey has turned this organization into Hillary Clinton’s lap dog of personal protection and has helped her evade criminal prosecution.
If Fox News is really after Clinton, then one would think that they would begin to impugn the integrity of James Comey and for the life of me, I cannot figure out why they have not, because for months since so much verifiable criminal evidence against Comey has surfaced, Fox News is continuing to ignore what is publicly ...
Every government in the world today is founded on a “big lie” that you’re about to see explained below. This is true regardless of party affiliation, nationality or era in which the government operates. All governments — past, present and future — are founded on this “big lie,” without exception.
What is this BIG LIE? It’s the idea that those who are in power will represent the interests of others who have no power.
This “big lie” fantasizes that selfish, power-seeking, egoistic human beings are magically transmuted into humble, compassionate, ethical “representatives” the minute they win an election. We are to believe that all their hunger for power instantly vanishes at the moment they win, replaced by God-like universal love for all the people, even at the expense of their own careers or personal wealth accumulation.
Somehow, we are led to believe, those who win elections are “serving their nation,” not leveraging power for their own selfish aims. Politicians even use this language themselves, claiming they are running for office in the hopes of “serving their country” but never serving their own insatiable appetite for power. Bureaucrats, as a rule of thumb, don’t serve their nations… they exploit national power to serve their own self interests.
Those who seek power almost always covet it for themselves
The very idea that people in power can be representatives of those who are powerless is absurd on its face. Has any religion, race, nationality or philosophical belief ever been discovered on this planet that describes a group of people who do not make decisions in their own self interest? You might say that certain religious organizations or non-profits are engaged in such selfless behavior, and you’d be right in a few isolated cases. But for the vast majority of organizations — including most non-profits — their aim is to increase their own size, power and influence.
That same philosophy pervades the halls of every national capitol in the world, where the claim of “serving the people” is usually ...

As many as 7,000 massive underground methane bubbles, formed by thawing permafrost are set to explode in Siberia. Such explosions, while releasing greenhouse gases, can create massive craters and poses a major safety risk to the local people.
Scientists were puzzled over the appearance of numerous craters across the Siberian permafrost over recent years - including the famous 'gateway to the underworld' crater near Batagaiin. Later, it was discovered that unseasonably high temperatures have released methane stored in the permafrost, causing a sort of explosion that forms the craters.
Last year, more than 15 bulges or bulgunyakh in the local Yakut language, were discovered by researchers in Siberia's remote Bely Island. In a followup research, using extensive field expeditions and satellite surveys. thousands of bulging bumps in the Yamal and Gydan peninsulas have been identified.
