Is This Fruit Extract 10,000 Times Better Than Chemotherapy?

Adriamycin is the trade name for the chemoagent doxorubucin and is known by the nickname “red devil,” due to both its deep red color and terrible side effects, which include life-threatening, even fatal damage to the cardiovascular system. This abject lack of “selective CYTOTOXICITY” — the ability to kill only the cancer cells and not healthy ones  – is what makes Adriamycin so dangerous. And yet, it has been a first line treatment for a wide range of cancers for almost half a century.
Since the 1996 study, little research on graviola was performed. There was a cell study in 1999 which showed it had anti- prostate cancer and breast cancer activity; another 2002 cell study showed that graviola exhibited anti-hepatoma (LIVER CANCER) activity, but nothing as promising as the original 1996 study ever followed.
Then, in 2011, the journal NUTRITION AND CANCER revealed highly promising research on Graviola and breast cancer. Researchers found that graviola fruit extract (GFE) suppressed so-called oncogene (or cancer-causing gene) expression in the cell and animal models of breast cancer. The oncogene known as epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR) is commonly over-expressed in breast cancer, and therefore an ideal target for therapy.

Vick first QB to 6,000 yards rushing

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. -- The JetsMichael Vick became the first quarterback to rush for 6,000 yards in a career in Sunday's 20-13 victory over the Pittsburgh Steelers.
Vick finished with 39 rushing yards for the Jets, who stunned the Steelers to snap an eight-game losing streak.
Vick already held the record for career rushing yards by a quarterback coming into the season, and had 5,967 yards rushing coming into the game. To put that into context, Vick's former Eagles teammate running back LeSean McCoy has 6,095 yards as of last week.
"Really, it makes me feel old, because that's years of hard work," Vick said. "Probably something that -- well, I know it's something that hasn't been done in the league up until this point. It's a major milestone."
Randall Cunningham is the second quarterback on the list with 4,928 career yards, and Steve Young had 4,239.
At 34 and in his 12th NFL season, Vick was drafted by the Falcons and played there for six seasons, and then played five seasons for the Eagles. After losing the starting job in Philadelphia last season to quarterback Nick Foles, Vick was brought in by the Jets on a one-year, $4 million deal.
The veteran could be considered to have revolutionized the quarterback position, and a new generation of running quarterbacks.
"There were times where I could have been a difference maker," Vick said. "Things could have been a lot better. But reaching those type of milestones and continuing to play the game at a high level at my age makes me appreciate the game of football."

Happy Veterans Day

Veteran's Day is special. On this day we honor our nation's heroes, who died fighting for our country in foreign shores. Without our brave soldiers, we would not have known peace or tranquility. Let us honor the martyrs who laid down their life to protect their country from external threats.165956009
