Mystery epidemic of colon cancer in young people laid bare
Cases have DOUBLED in under-40s by 2030, it’ll be the number one cancer killer, and experts believe bad diets or fungus is to blame
Colon cancer deaths among young people are expected to double in two decades by 2030, experts warn.
The cancer – which is especially hard to treat due to late diagnosis and broad symptoms – is also expected to become the number one cause of cancer deaths in people under 50 by the end of the decade. Continue reading
Medical Students Aren’t Showing Up to Class
What does that mean for future Docs?
During my first two years as a medical student, I almost never went to lectures. Neither did my peers. In fact, I estimate that not even a quarter of medical students in my class consistently attended classes in person. One of my professors, Dr. Philip Gruppuso, says in his 40 years of teaching, in-person lecture attendance is the lowest he’s seen. Even before the COVID-19 pandemic, first- and second-year medical students regularly skipped lectures. Instead, they opted to watch the recordings at home on their own time. The pandemic accelerated the shift.
This absence from the classroom has a lot of people in the medical education system wondering how this will affect future doctors, and has precipitated wide discussion among medical institutions. Medical education is changing rapidly, and the change is being driven by students — so how do schools incorporate the reality of virtual learning while training them adequately for the huge responsibility of patient care?

New Study Is Extremely Embarrassing for Lab-Grown Meat
Researchers at UC Davis have made a startling discovery that could change the way we view lab-grown meat.
As detailed in a yet-to-be-peer-reviewed paper, they found that the meat alternative’s environmental impact appears to be “orders of magnitude” higher than retail beef you can buy at the grocery store — itself already a very environmentally damaging foodstuff — at least based on current production methods.
If confirmed, the research could be damning: lab-grown meat, long seen as a greener alternative to meat products that don’t involve the slaughter of animals, could be more harmful to the environment than the products it’s trying to replace
“It’s not a panacea“… (Continue to full article)
9 Healthiest Vegetables to Eat
We all know veggies are healthy, but which ones are the healthiest to include in your daily diet?
“All vegetables offer health-promoting properties and compounds that reduce risk of disease, however, some vegetables are more nutrient-dense and functional than others, and I encourage people to include [those] in their eating plan every day.

Why Butter Is Better
When the fabricated food folks and apologists for the corporate farm realized that they couldn’t block America’s growing interest in diet and nutrition, a movement that would ultimately put an end to America’s biggest and most monopolistic industries, they infiltrated the movement and put a few sinister twists on information going out to the public.
Item number one in the disinformation campaign was the assertion that naturally saturated fats from animal sources are the root cause of the current heart disease and cancer plague. Butter bore the brunt of the attack, and was accused of terrible crimes. The Diet Dictocrats told us that it was better to switch to polyunsaturated margarine and most Americans did. Butter all but disappeared from our tables, shunned as a miscreant.
This would come as a surprise to many people around the globe who have valued butter for its life-sustaining properties for millennia… (Continue to full article)
Covid vaccines – A colossal failure around the world
The COVID vaccines – and the new bivalents, of which they are a part – are alarmingly and irredeemably unsafe, as well as ineffective for the advertised purposes. It is increasingly recognized by laypeople, physicians and scientists throughout the world that the COVID-19 vaccines are neither safe nor effective nor reversible. In this article, I show irrefutable proof that the COVID vaccines are irredeemably ineffective. (See many dozens of my other Substack articles, and my book Neither Safe Nor Effective, on how dangerous these vaccines are.)
Background – US mortality data at the end of 2020 did not support the allegation of a pandemic, because there was no more of an outlying peak in excess deaths in 2020 than other peaks throughout the past two decades, as reported at that time. A series of CDC revisions have continually increased the number claimed dead in 2020. Even now, as of 4/24/23, the CDC shows that 3,383,729 people died from all causes in the US in 2020 on one page written in December 2021.
If even two years after the end of 2020, allegations of the number of those dead in 2020 continued to increase, at what point will that number be settled? How is it that by December 2021 an accurate number of deaths in 2020 was not available to the CDC? …and it is now half-way through 2023… (Continue to full article)
Men should eat walnuts to prevent prostate cancer
Good news, gentlemen: Eating walnuts can help stave off prostate cancer.
This is according to researchers from the University of California, Davis, who found that walnuts, aside from helping to reduce excess cholesterol and increasing insulin sensitivity, are also capable of reducing the levels of a protein associated with prostate cancer.
According to nutritionist Paul Davis, who acted as the study’s lead researcher, their findings provide additional evidence that walnuts, despite being high in fats, are actually a great addition to a healthy diet
Compounds in walnuts affect the expression of prostate cancer-related genes… (Continue to full article)
Gut microbiota may affect the anti-cancer activity of this oriental herb against colorectal cancer
Oplopanax elatus, commonly known as nakai, is an herb native to northern China that is known for its anti-cancer effects, especially against colorectal cancer (CRC). But questions remain on whether or not the human gut microbiota interferes with nakai’s anti-CRC effects
Finding out if the gut microbiota does affect the anti-CRC effects of molecules from O. elatus is important. Doing so allows doctors and scientists to better understand how to better use the herb in the treatment of CRC.
To test this, the researchers analyzed both compounds in the PEFO as well as PEFO incubated with human gut microbiota for 72 hours (PEFO I) using high-performance liquid chromatography with diode-array detection quadrupole time of flight mass spectrometer (HPLC-DAD-QTOF-MS) method validation… (Continue to full article)
TURBO CANCER: Children are DYING within hours or days of leukemia diagnosis, often after receiving vaccine jabs
Children and young adults are dying within hours or days after being diagnosed with leukemia. Some say the Wuhan coronavirus (COVID-19) vaccines have something to do with these untimely deaths.
Data suggests that COVID-19 mRNA vaccines deliver lipid nanoparticles (LNPs) with mRNA to the bone marrow. What does this have to do with these cases?
Leukemia is a broad term for cancers of the body’s blood-forming tissues, including the bone marrow and the lymphatic system. Leukemia usually involves white blood cells. In patients with leukemia, their bone marrow produces an excessive amount of abnormal white blood cells, which don’t function properly… (Continue to full article)
“Nightbirde” ~ It’s O.K.!
Jane “Nightbirde” Marczewski became a fan favorite on “America’s Got Talent” when her performance wowed Simon Cowell moments after she shared that she was a cancer survivor on national TV. She speaks with CNN’s Chris Cuomo after deciding to leave the show following a devastating cancer update.
Sadly, Jane passed away on February 19, 2022. She was the best singer I’ve ever seen on AGT. She may have died, but cancer didn’t defeat her. She’s now immortal.
As a very cold and hardened grown man, this woman and this poem brings me to tears. Sad tears and angry tears. But also tears of hope, love, and appreciation for life. May you rest in peace you beautiful soul. Continue reading

Summer Lee’s First House Bill Would Guarantee Hazard Pay for Frontline ‘Healthcare Heroes‘
“Every time disaster strikes, our healthcare workers show up for us – even when it means putting their own lives at risk. It’s time we show up for them with pay and protection, not just bells and whistles.”
In her first piece of House legislation, Democratic Pennyslvania Congresswoman Summer Lee on Thursday introduced a bill that would provide hazard pay, protective gear, and transportation for essential U.S. healthcare workers.
The Hazard Pay for Healthcare Heroes Act—co-sponsored by Reps. Ro Khanna (D-Calif.) and Barbara Lee (D-Calif.), with a companion bill introduced in the upper chamber by Sen. Ed Markey (D-Mass.) – would empower the Department of Health and Human Services to authorize hazard pay of up to $13 per hour or $25,000 annually per worker. Continue reading
At 23, Cancer Never Crossed My Mind — Until My Diagnosis
In 2022, I was diagnosed with cancer at 23 years old. Here’s what I’ve learned since.
September of 2022, at 23 years old, I was experiencing difficulty breathing and feeling under the weather, which landed me in the emergency room. I had recently been on a bachelorette trip to Vegas which lead me to assume I may have caught an illness considering my flu-like symptoms.
Sure enough, I was diagnosed with acute pneumonia, but little did I know that was not the only diagnoses coming my way. I was experiencing night sweats and swollen lymph nodes, and a 5-cm mass pushing on my bronchial tubes was seen on a CT scan, which lead doctors to perform a biopsy on a lymph node in my neck as well as my bone marrow a few days later.

Politics Are KILLING Medicine
(September 15, 2021) Recently I needed to visit the Urgent Care Center here in Front Royal, Virginia. I have gone there two or three times over the past four years, usually waiting around 15 minutes to see a doctor or a nurse. This time the woman at the front desk told me my wait would be between three and four hours. I left, but when I returned the next day – their system was down, and I couldn’t make an appointment – I was again given the same long wait.
Since then, I have looked at their jobs site and discovered they have dozens of positions open ranging from cooks to nurses. Was that shortage caused in part by the corporation’s demand that all their employees receive the vaccine? Continue reading

Reports reveal the risk for strokes is on the rise in young adults
May is National Stroke Awareness Month, and along with education on strokes, doctors are looking for answers to why strokes are happening in younger patients.
The American Stroke Association reports more strokes in adults under 50. One Houston doctor says he isn’t sure exactly why this is happening, but thinks our changes in lifestyles could be an answer.
“Researchers have studied the obesity, diabetes, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, cholesterol of younger people now, and the prevalence is going up.”
Dr. El-Ghanem also suggests neglecting healthcare or regular doctors visits during the pandemic could also be a reason that we’re seeing strokes in younger people, more often… (Continue to full article)

What are stage 1 stomach cancer symptoms?
Doctors use a staging system to describe the severity and spread of stomach cancer, with stage 1 being the earliest stage. Symptoms of stage 1 stomach cancer may include abdominal discomfort, indigestion, nausea, and bloating.
At this stage, doctors typically recommend treatment with surgery to remove all or part of the stomach. They may follow this with chemotherapy to kill any remaining cancer cells.
Because early detection is crucial when treating cancer, anyone with stomach cancer symptoms should seek medical attention as soon as possible. With prompt treatment, doctors can often successfully manage stage 1 stomach cancer… (Continue to full article)

Warning signs of a heart attack a month before
A heart attack is a medical emergency in which the blood supply to the heart is suddenly blocked. Warning signs that occur a month beforehand could be chest discomfort, fatigue, and shortness of breath.
Every year, around 805,000 people in the United States have a heart attack, or myocardial infarction, roughly one heart attack every 40 seconds.
Heart attacks have distinct symptoms, meaning people can seek emergency treatment immediately upon noticing them. However, while heart attacks occur suddenly, there may be signs ahead of a major cardiac event, such as chest discomfort.
Being aware of these heart attack warning signs can help people seek treatment quickly, improving the chance of a swift and full recovery… (Continue to full article)
Individuals with a long-term high tea consumption trajectory may have lower risk for all-cause mortality
In a recent study published in the Nutrition Journal, researchers investigated whether the protective effects of consuming tea against hypertension and mortality interact with alcohol intake among Chinese individuals.

Does ADHD even EXIST?
It has a huge and powerful lobby which turns with fury on its critics so I know this question will get me into loads of trouble but…
In online consultations, staff had diagnosed a BBC reporter with ADHD — attention deficit hyperactivity disorder — despite an in-person, and far longer, assessment by an NHS psychiatrist concluding that he didn’t have the condition.
The clinics, while charging rather plump fees, seemed to have an extremely relaxed attitude towards diagnosing this increasingly common complaint.
It is a huge issue. ADHD was once mainly confined to children but is now spreading rapidly into the adult populations of the Western world.
The clinics, one of them working on behalf of the overloaded NHS, were also willing to prescribe powerful stimulant drugs on the basis of this… (Continue to full article)
Big Pharma Uses Fuzzy Math to Discredit Discount Drug Program
When it comes to 340B, a program granting cheaper medicines to nonprofit healthcare patients, drug industry innumeracy is only rivaled by its greed.
The recent wave of articles on the 340B Drug Pricing Program’s supposedly “out-of-control” growth relies on faulty comparisons and fuzzy math. News reports and opinion columns often cite misleading statistics from 340B opponents.
Drug makers have the entire commercial insurance and federal entitlement drug markets to reap massive profits. Yet the drug industry remains unsatisfied with less-than-outrageous profits for a small slice of prescription drug sales… (Continue to full article)
WHO Advises Not to Use Non-Sugar Sweeteners for Weight Control
The World Health Organization (WHO) has released a new guideline on non-sugar sweeteners (NSS), which recommends against the use of NSS to control body weight or reduce the risk of noncommunicable diseases (NCDs).
The recommendation is based on the findings of a systematic review of the available evidence which suggests that use of NSS does not confer any long-term benefit in reducing body fat in adults or children. Results of the review also suggest that there may be potential undesirable effects from long-term use of NSS, such as an increased risk of type 2 diabetes, cardiovascular diseases, and mortality in adults.
