Biden’s ‘Cancer Moonshot’ Aims for a Cure — What About Tackling the Cause? In President Biden’s state of the union address Tuesday night, he pledged his devotion to a fierce “fight against cancer,” invoking a heart-tugging story of baby “Ava,” who started her battle with kidney cancer at the age of 1. Biden spoke of a reignited “Cancer Moonshot” search for a cure for cancers that are impacting far too many lives, and of measures to cut healthcare costs to make treating cancer more affordable. He outlined an ambitious goal to cut cancer death rates by at least 50% in the next 25 years, and to “turn more cancers from death sentences to treatable diseases, provide more support for patients and their families.” But nowhere in his lengthy prime-time address did Biden speak of working to rein in the vast, virtually unchecked, flood of environmental chemical contaminants that scientists say cause cancer. A new book scheduled for release in May written by journalist Kristina Marusic lays out in stark terms how already-staggeringly highly rates of cancer are sure to continue to climb if we don’t slash our exposure to the chemicals known to cause cancer. The harsh statistics are detailed by Phil Landrigan, director of the Program for Global Public Health and the Common Good at Boston College, in the introduction to Marusic’s “A New War on Cancer: The Unlikely Heroes Revolutionizing Prevention.”
Colloidal silver a powerful remedy against superbugs, study finds Researchers at the University of Florida have discovered that silver nanoparticles, also known as colloidal silver, can serve as a powerful remedy against antibiotic-resistant bacteria, more commonly known as “superbugs.” Certain hard-to-fight infections die on contact with silver, the scientists revealed in their paper, which was published in the journal Frontiers in Microbiology. The antimicrobial properties of silver nanoparticles, or microscopic spheres of silver small enough to operate at the cellular level, could aid in the fight against antibiotic-resistant infections, which kill more than a million people globally every single year. The purpose of the study was to test the efficacy of silver nanoparticles alongside a common class of broad-spectrum antibiotics known as aminoglycosides. Daniel Czy?, the study’s senior author, told the media that his team’s experiments show that the two things do, in fact, work synergistically. “When combined with a small amount of silver nanoparticles, the amount of antibiotic needed to inhibit the bacteria decreased 22-fold, which tells us that the nanoparticles make the drug much more potent,” Czy? explained. Taking aminoglycosides by themselves at prescribed doses is risky, carrying with it the potential for deadly side effects. Adding silver into the mix allows for lower doses of aminoglycosides to be taken with amplified effect, making for a safer remedy.
Smith backs Moe in refusing Digital ID Last week, Moe wrote a letter to constituents who were concerned about the prospect of being forced to use a digital ID that provides data to the federal government. On Friday, Smith fully endorsed Moe’s messaging. “I agree and stand firmly with @PremierScottMoe in protecting Albertans’ private health information. I will ensure that any agreements with the Federal Government do NOT include the sharing of any such personal information with the Feds or third party. #cdnpoli #abpoli,” Smith tweeted. Many Albertans on social media had wondered if Smith would echo Moe’s statements. Last week, a letter surfaced that Moe had written to constituents that stated they don’t have to worry about a digital ID. “The government of Saskatchewan is not creating a Digital ID nor will we accept any requirements for the creation of a digital ID tied to healthcare funding.” Moe further said his government wouldn’t share any personal medical information with the feds. “This information is protected under The Health Information Protection Act and will remain so,” he said. As Canadians increasingly look for security in the digital landscape, two major players have emerged in the conception, design, and development of Canada’s Digital ID — including one with close ties to the World Economic Forum (WEF).
Drug-free relief from chronic constipation may come from a new vibrating pill People who struggle with chronic constipation have a new drug-free option to help get things moving again. It’s a first-of-its-kind capsule about is the size of a regular pill – but instead of releasing medication after it’s swallowed, it vibrates to stimulate the colon. The capsules, called Vibrant, was cleared by the US Food and Drug Administration in August but just became available for doctors to prescribe this week. Doctors consider a person to be constipated when they’re having fewer than three bowel movements in a week. Between 10% to 20% of Americans live with persistent constipation that doesn’t have a discernible cause, according to a recent survey. They tend to have hard, dry stools that may cause pain and bloating. The idea behind the treatment is that a single vibrant pill is taken around bedtime every day. It then travels the same route as food does, through the stomach and small intestine, finally reaching the large intestine about 14 hours later. Then, it goes to work. The pills stimulate specialized nerve cells in the gut called mechanosensory cells. These help trigger peristalsis, the undulating muscle contractions that help squeeze food through the gut. “There are little vibrations for three seconds on, three seconds off,” said Cathy Collis, chief commercial officer for Vibrant Gastro, which is based in Israel but has offices in the US.
