Breast cancer drug Lapatinib ACCELERATES cancer cell growth, concludes new study

A shocking new report has revealed a sordid truth about yet another one of Big Pharma’s cancer “treatment” concoctions: Lapatinib, used in breast cancer treatment to shrink tumors, actually makes cancer grow faster.

Immune systems go haywire when mice are fed fast food, causing an “explosion” of inflammation

Fast food is unhealthy; it’s loaded with salt, sugar and fat — and a whole lot of calories. It’s often pretty low in essential nutrients, as well. It’s well documented that fast food should be consumed in moderation, if at all. Indeed, most people know that takeaway meals aren’t ideal, but a recent study has […]

OUTED: DuPont covered up the health risks of Teflon

Few things are as ubiquitous in modern kitchens as nonstick cookware; from frying pans to baking dishes and a host of other accouterments, you’d be hard-pressed to find a kitchen without something brandishing a nonstick coating.

England’s Chief Medical Officer, Professor Dame Sally Davies, has warned of a “post-antibiotic apocalypse.” According to Davies, widespread antibiotic resistance could be driving “the end of modern medicine” as we speak.
