Higher Vitamin D Levels Associated With Markedly Improved Survival in Patients With Advanced Colorectal Cancer
2-6-2015 ASCO Perspective: In addition to improved survival, high vitamin D levels were associated with a longer time for the cancer to become resistant to chemotherapy, suggesting that vitamin D could slow down the growth of the cancer or enhance the activity of the health treatment, said Smitha S. Krishnamurthi, MD, moderator of today’s presscast and ASCO expert.
“Further studies are needed to determine if the improved health survival is due to the vitamin D itself or to some other factor associated with having high vitamin D levels.”

7-7-2014 What does the birth and travels of Jesus have in common with our newest people immigrating to the U.S. in Exodus Style? Everything, because of the unanimus decision of King Herod in wanting to kill all first born males their lives were in danger. So too are our latest children arriving at the Texas border from their countries which are raviging families with fear mongering and violent behavior toward them.
3-24-2015Many people say yes. Not so fast there buddy lest you begin to know the real facts accoding to the Fluoride Action Network. Their contention thru research suggests that:
In the United States, health authorities call fluoridation “one of the top 10 public health achievements of the 20th century.” Few other countries share this view. In fact, more people drink artificially fluoridated water in the U.S. alone than in the rest of the world combined.
1. Most advanced nations do not fluoridate their water. In western Europe, 97% of the population has water without a single drop of fluoride added to it
2. Fluoridation proponents will sometimes say this is because Europe adds fluoride to its salt. Only five nations in western Europe, however, have any fluoridated salt.
3. The vast majority do not.
Hi Diane, We requested to be sent to a small town in need that did not have a Salvation Army. We were sent to Barstow,California a year and a half ago in the high desert of the Mojave Desert. It is 40 miles from a mall and most shopping. The community has fallen on pretty desperate times with over 50% of the population is now on some sort of government aid. Jobs are quite scarce and the need for emergency food and utility assistance made us quite popular soon as we opened our pantry.

NFL Embroiled in Controversy
2-18-2015 Did you know that the IRS considers the NFL a non-profit, tax-exempt organization? I just took action to demand that NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell testify before Congress to justify the NFL's tax-exempt status. I think you should, too. I can't hardly believe that, especially since they have treated their athletes with so much disregard in the past by not taking proper care of their health. You can sign the petition here
Tim Cook Apple CEO and Personal Privacy in the Tech World
According to Tim Cook "We live in a world in which that information can make the difference between life and death," he said. "If those of us in positions of responsibility fail to do everything in our power to protect the right of privacy, we risk something far more valuable than money — we risk our way of life."
He continued technology "gives us the tools to avoid these risks. And it is my sincere hope that by using them and by working together we will do so." This year Cook expects Apple Pay to be able to process social security checks as well as pay for admittance to National parks and more.

Put the 47 Republican Senators in Prison for Treason
3-12-2015 Put the 47 republican senators in prison for treason. They have shamed the entire country and themselves behaving like spoiled rotten children who want their way no matter what. For them to have said our president does not have the right to make deals with countries is undermining his authority.
Furthermore according to legal authorities :That letter from the Arkansas Republican to the ayatollahs and other Iranian officials, critics say, is a violation of the 1799 Logan Act, which says starkly:
“Any citizen of the United States, wherever he may be, who, without authority of the United States, directly or indirectly commences or carries on any correspondence or intercourse with any foreign government or any officer or agent thereof, with intent to influence the measures or conduct of any foreign government or of any officer or agent thereof, in relation to any disputes or controversies with the United States, or to defeat the measures of the United States, shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than three years, or both.”
