Cancer rates are climbing among young people. It’s not clear why Vanessa Chapoy had just turned 24 when she felt the lump in her breast. It was “huge,” she remembers, “like the size of a walnut, or a big marble.” She went to the first in a series of doctors that night to have it checked out. Two-and-a-half weeks later, she was diagnosed with breast cancer. Stage two, she would learn. “And my whole world flipped upside down,” Chapoy says. She entered a gauntlet of treatments: a lumpectomy to cut out the tumor and a portion of surrounding breast tissue, fertility treatments so she could freeze her eggs, five months of chemotherapy and then a double mastectomy to remove both of her breasts. Three years on, she’s still undergoing hormone therapy — an experience she likens to “early menopause” — and occasionally suffering from “chemo brain,” a form of brain fog resulting from chemotherapy that she says makes it more difficult for her to complete tasks or remember certain things. “I don’t understand how this could happen,” she recalls telling a nurse at the beginning of it all. “I’m so young.” Cancer, after all, most often strikes late in life. In the United States, nearly 60 percent of patients are 65 or older when they’re diagnosed.

Federal Judge Rules in Favor of Parents Seeking to Prevent T-Mobile From Activating Cell Tower on School Roof A federal judge on Thursday ruled in favor of keeping a temporary restraining order in place against T-Mobile until at least June 30, to prevent the telecom giant from activating a cell tower on the top of a Michigan elementary school. The ruling stemmed from a lawsuit brought by parents of children who attend Washington Elementary School in Wyandotte. The parents allege T-Mobile illegally erected the tower and that the tower poses unknown health risks to the students. The defendants include T-Mobile Central LLC, the Wyandotte public school district and the town’s board of education and city council. “I want people to hear us and know that our staff and our community are not pawns,” said Lisa Beck, a parent and one of the plaintiffs. “You can’t play with us and our safety.” Josh Castmore, an attorney for the plaintiffs, said, “I have two little girls who go to Washington Elementary and when I hear about the levels of [radiofrequency (RF)] radiation they are going to be exposed to on a daily basis, it is shocking.” He added: “T-Mobile is refusing to voluntarily agree to keep the tower powered off while the case is pending. It is requiring us to file a motion and obtain an order to do so.”
‘Double-Talking’ Vaccine Scientist Refuses To Debate RFK Jr. Despite $1.5 Million Charity Pot Last week, podcast giant Joe Rogan had Hotez on his show, where he proceeded to badmouth anti-vax presidential candidate Robert Kennedy Jr. – before telling Rogan that he’d be ‘uncomfortable’ debating him. Joe Rogan First Challenged Peter Hotez to Debate RFK Jr on the Science of Vaccines in 2019, But He Declined… “He’s an attorney and he’s very clever and he knows how to do arguments in court. And what am I? I’m a scientist.” pic.twitter.com/oJuXudzsux — Kathie (@TheCrimsonWorm) June 18, 2023 Rogan also called him out for being a hypocrite; .@JoeRogan grills Dr. Peter Hotez for exclusively promoting vaccines while disregarding exercise, vitamins, and a healthy diet: “There’s a large body of data that connects poor diet to a host of diseases… You don’t think vitamins are needed while you eat junk food?” pic.twitter.com/5RNmAEReTf — KanekoaTheGreat (@KanekoaTheGreat) June 18, 2023 In response, Rogan offered to donate $100,000 to charity if he would debate RFK Jr. – who basically called Hotez a little bitch: Peter. Let’s finally have the respectful,congenial,informative debate that the American people deserve.
Mark Cuban attacks Joe Rogan and Elon Musk in vaccines brawl on Twitter: ‘Way to talk in generalities Joe’ Mark Cuban—Shark Tank star, billionaire entrepreneur, and owner of both the Dallas Mavericks and Cost Plus Drugs—waded into a chaotic Twitter brawl about vaccines on Sunday involving some big names—including Tesla CEO Elon Musk, the world’s richest man. It centered around Spotify podcaster Joe Rogan challenging a medical expert—Dr. Peter Hotez, dean of the National School of Tropical Medicine and professor of pediatrics and molecular virology and microbiology at Baylor College of Medicine—to enter a debate about vaccines on his show. That came in response to Hotez sharing a Vice article from Friday entitled “Spotify Has Stopped Even Sort of Trying to Stem Joe Rogan’s Vaccine Misinformation.” The Vice article came after a Rogan episode the day prior featuring Robert F. Kennedy Jr., a long-shot Democratic presidential candidate, political scion, and—like Rogan—high-profile vaccine skeptic. Despite his political party, U.S. conservatives have taken a shine to Kennedy, who wrote a 2021 book entitled The Real Anthony Fauci: Bill Gates, Big Pharma, and the Global War on Democracy and Public Health. He’s also frequently deplored the war in Ukraine, calling it a ”money laundering racket for military contractors” on the podcast. Rogan tweeted on Saturday evening, “Peter, if you claim what RFKjr is saying is ‘misinformation’ I am offering you $100,000.00 to the charity of your choice if you’re willing to debate him on my show with no time limit.” “Joe, you have my cell, my email, I’m always willing to speak with you,” replied Hotez, who wrote the 2018 book Vaccines Did Not Cause Rachel’s Autism: My Journey as a Vaccine Scientist, Pediatrician, and Autism Dad. Twitter owner Musk then tweeted, “He’s afraid of a public debate, because he knows he’s wrong.”
‘They made a mistake’: Americans weigh in on Mark Cuban’s claim wokeness is good for business Americans weighed in on billionaire Mark Cuban’s claim that businesses embracing woke ideology is “good for business” amid conservative-led boycotts against Anheuser-Busch and Target. “They made a mistake,” Sandra from North Carolina told Fox News. Both companies have lost billions as a result of blowback from LGBTQ campaigns. Anheuser-Busch’s sales decreased year-over-year by nearly 24% after partnering with transgender influencer Dylan Mulvaney, while Target’s market cap lost billions after selling “tuck-friendly” women’s swimsuits and displaying LGBTQ and Pride month advertisements. “There is a reason almost all the top 10 market cap companies in the U.S. can be considered ‘woke,’” Cuban told the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette. “It’s good business,” the Dallas Mavericks owner said. “Most CEOs have enough experience to know to just wait out the news cycle until they go to the next one.” “If they want to do that to make money, that’s their decision,” said Truman, of North Carolina. “That’s what’s good about our country: free enterprise, free market.” Matt from New York agreed with Cuban, but added that he believed managers care about ideologies they push. “They may have over-sauced it a little bit, which is why you’ve seen a lot of backlash, but they’ll correct,” he added.

Is it Ok to drink distilled water daily? There seems to be opposing opinions on this in the alternative medical community. (I’m aware of Echo water, but am just wondering about distilled.) Thank you!!
