    A Colorado mom hospitalized for 21 days died Tuesday without seeing her husband or two children, despite the family’s repeated requests for an exception to a policy barring visitors during the coronavirus crisis ... Elizabeth, who had autoimmune issues and heart problems for years, was at UCHealth University of Colorado Hospital in Aurora for three weeks with severe infections in her lungs and blood. Her family was not allowed to see her because the hospital, like many during the coronavirus pandemic, has enacted a strict no-visitor policy ... No matter how many times Reiter asked to visit Elizabeth, even when...

    The coronavirus does not cure heart attacks.. CLEVELAND, Ohio -“We know that we have many patients, staying at home suffering these heart attacks not seeking care,” said University Hospitals Cardiologist, Dr. Greg Stefano. Throughout this pandemic regular doctor’s visits have been cancelled and patients have been avoiding emergency rooms and calling 911, for fear of being exposed at hospitals. But that is a dangerous trend for heart patients. 64 year Andrew Gruber didn’t hesitate when he felt symptoms of a heart attack on April 16th. Muson EMS got to him within about 5 minutes, performed an EKG at the scene,...

    Scientists published on the National Institute of Health website reported on three-dozen clinical trials underway, testing the anti-malarial drug Hydroxychloroquine — HQC — to treat cancer. In fact, HCQ is being tested on brain tumors, breast cancer, pancreatic cancer, but also diabetes and arthritis, as well as Lupus and other maladies where it was already known to be an effective treatment. It’s also been found safe enough to be used by pregnant women. And what’s even more eye-opening, never mind getting a prescription for this cheap generic drug, the active ingredient, otherwise known as Quinine, what’s in tonic water, you...

    Delays to cancer surgery and other treatment caused by the Covid-19 crisis could result in thousands of additional deaths linked to the pandemic in England, a major new study reports. New modelling has revealed the extent of the impact that disruption to the cancer care and diagnosis pathway could have on the survival of cancer patients. Many cancer patients may end up experiencing delays of several months to their cancer treatment in the context of the pandemic - including in operations to remove tumours. Those patients whose cancer will have progressed during the delay and who might otherwise have been...

    World-renowned apologist Ravi Zacharias, whose family recently announced that no other treatment is available for his advanced stage of cancer, still smiles and nods when messages of encouragement are read out to him, but “it appears that the time for him to be with the Lord he loved to serve is drawing near,” said Michael Ramsden, president of Ravi Zacharias International Ministries. Zacharias, who has been battling a rare form of bone cancer since March, continues to remain at home where he’s surrounded by close family, all of whom are thankful for all the messages and encouragement they are receiving,...

    Tim Tebow struggled to hold back tears as he spoke about the impact Ravi Zacharias' ministry has had on his life after learning that no other treatment options are available for the minister's advanced stage of cancer. Zacharias has been battling a rare form of bone cancer since March and was recently informed by doctors that there’s nothing more they can do. On Friday, Ravi Zacharias International Ministries shared a health update from Sarah Davis, CEO of RZIM and Zacharias' daughter, who informed the ministry's global staff about her father's condition. “We have just learned that while the tumor in...

    Could snake or insect venom yield the next big treatment for diabetes or cancer? Researchers think so - and they're spending lots of time with compounds found in the venom of animals such as scorpions, snakes and snails in the hopes they'll yield new drugs. In a feature for the journal PNAS, Amy McDermott explores the trend, and its fascinating history.

    On any list of medical triumphs of the 20th century, polio vaccination is sure to rate a mention. In the 1950s and early 1960s, the shot and sugar-cube vaccines offered people the first opportunities to protect themselves from a scourge as feared in its day as AIDS is in our own. Few back then grasped that these vaccines might also be a huge, inadvertent, uncontrolled experiment in interspecies viral transmission. But from 1955 to 1963, according to a 1976 US National Institutes of Health (NIH)-funded study, 98 million Americans alone probably were exposed to polio vaccines contaminated with SV40—a monkey...

    Dozens of doctors, nurses and health care workers gathered outside Presbyterian Rust Medical Center in Rio Rancho Wednesday morning for a very special delivery from a young man. "I found out that I had cancer when I broke my leg when I was skiing. They x-rayed my leg. Something didn't look right, so that's when I was admitted to the hospital and then I started treatment right away. It lasted for around 5 months. I was in the hospital for about 40 nights, but right now I'm in remission,” said Sam Neale, a Make-A-Wish recipient. It was 17-year-old Sam Neale’s...

    The team at Johns Hopkins University, where the test was developed, say a commercial product is years away and they are working to fine tune their test -- many cancers were not found by the blood test alone. But their results are the first to demonstrate that it's possible to screen people for several types of cancer at once with a blood test. They tested about 10,000 women with no symptoms. Those who had a positive test then were given combination PET and CT scans to look for tumors. Out of the 10,000 women, the test turned up 26 cancers...

    Researchers from Baylor College of Medicine suggest fasting from dawn to sunset may reduce the risk of cancer and other illness. They did not eat or drink during daylight hours, but had no calorie restrictions outside of that time. After the 30 days, their blood samples showed an increase in proteins, that protect against cancer, obesity, diabetes, and even some neurological disorders. But don't change your diet yet , or without talking to your doctor. Researchers say larger and longer studies are needed. The study was led by researchers at Baylor College of Medicine and published in 'Journal of Proteomics.''

    The U.S. Food and Drug Administration today announced it is requesting manufacturers withdraw all prescription and over-the-counter (OTC) ranitidine drugs from the market immediately. This is the latest step in an ongoing investigation of a contaminant known as N-Nitrosodimethylamine (NDMA) in ranitidine medications (commonly known by the brand name Zantac). The agency has determined that the impurity in some ranitidine products increases over time and when stored at higher than room temperatures and may result in consumer exposure to unacceptable levels of this impurity. As a result of this immediate market withdrawal request, ranitidine products will not be available for...

  • Is Hydroxychloroquine an effective treatment for cancer that’s been hidden?

    I’ve been thinking about Covid-19, the lock-down/quarantine, and the debate over using these drugs like hydroxychloroquine to treat it. Some say don’t use the drugs, some say it’s 100% effective. I started looking up other uses of this particular medication and there have been some trials where hydroxychloroquine is effective in treating cancer cells. Imagine if this drug has been KNOWN to effectively treat cancer, but for decades has been hidden from us so that the entire “cancer” industry can continue to profit?!?! Q has alluded to such a possibility. Perhaps we should be delving in more and questioning. Maybe...

    As NRL News Today readers are keenly aware, pro-abortionists are incensed that in prioritizing their response to the COVID-19 pandemic, governors in a number of states have issued orders that have properly concluded that elective—elective with a capital “E”—abortions are not “essential medical care.” To Planned Parenthood, NARAL, etc. every abortion is, by definition, essential. Thus, any governor, such as Texas Gov. Greg Abbott, who “justly prioritizes supplies and personal protective equipment for the medical professionals in need” (as Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton said), must be demonized. Enter Planned Parenthood’s acting president and CEO Alexis McGill Johnson. McGill Johnson...

    UPI ^ | Study: Breastfeeding may reduce risk for ovarian cancer by 24%
    Women who breastfeed their children may reduce risk for ovarian cancer later in life by as much as 24 percent, a new study has found. The research, published Thursday by JAMA Oncology, also demonstrated that the longer women breastfeed, the more they can reduce their risk. In fact, breastfeeding children for 12 or more months was associated with a 34 percent reduction in risk for disease, the authors noted. "Breastfeeding any child, even for as little as one to three months can help reduce ovarian cancer risk," study co-author Dr. Naoko Sasamoto, a research fellow in obstetrics, gynecology and reproductive...

    The dossier on cancer researcher Wu Xifeng was thick with intrigue, if hardly the stuff of a spy thriller. It contained findings that she’d im­properly shared confi­den­tial information and accepted a half-dozen advisory roles at medical institutions in China. She might have weathered those allegations, but for a larger aspersion that was far more problematic: she was branded an oncological double agent. In recent decades, cancer research has become increasingly globalised, with scientists around the world pooling data and ideas to jointly study a disease that kills almost 10 million people a year. International collaborations are an intrinsic part of...

I’m sitting here at my official home library desk, and I am fine. Now, here’s where my problems began. The cancer I have, the lung cancer I have involves the mutation of a gene that occurs in 1 to 5% of lung cancer patients. Now, ordinarily that would be very bad news because it would be something that maybe there’s no medicine for or that there’s no targeted treatment...

He’s hopping to be home early April, He needs time to get stronger before they can do the surgery on the area in the colon that was leaking. It’s healed but they don’t trust it to stay healed long term. So he’ll rest maybe 3 or 4 months at home and then get it done. Barring any new leaks, he is well on his way to full recovery. He thanks everyone so much for...
