Scientists cure cancer but no one takes notice!

Canadian researchers find a simple cure for cancer, but major pharmaceutical companies are not interested.
The method employs dichloroacetate, which is currently used to treat metabolic disorders. So, there is no concern of side effects or about their long term effects.

This drug doesn’t require a patent, so anyone can employ it widely and cheaply compared to the costly cancer drugs produced by major pharmaceutical companies.

Living the Dream

Living the Dream, originally uploaded by Robbi Baba.

This last weekend we took a holiday down in Santa Cruz, visiting our dear friend Jay. He scored us free tickets to the Beach Boardwalk and we had a time.
I discovered I'm not much good at rides anymore. The rollercoaster hurt my neck and the whirly ones made my stomach unhappy! Oh well.
It was much more fun visiting Jay and cruising the wonderful Pacific Garden Mall downtown.
