Blame local med schools for poor quality doctors

A leading educationist here, who declined to be named, alleged that it has become more and more prevalent that some of Malaysian medical schools have admitted students with inferior academic qualification.

Speaking to FMT, he said: “Some colleges seem to have relaxed some academic requirements.  “At the end of examinations, professors had to prop them up by giving remedial classes just to give extra marks so that they don’t get kicked out. It’s an open secret (in the university academia),” he said.

FDA Finally Admits Chicken Meat Contains Cancer-Causing Arsenic

After years of sweeping the issue under the rug and hoping no one would notice, the FDA has now finally admitted that chicken meat sold in the USA contains arsenic, a cancer-causing toxic chemical that’s fatal in high doses. But the real story is where this arsenic comes from: It’s added to the chicken feed on purpose!

Even worse, the FDA says its own research shows that the arsenic added to the chicken feed ends up in the chicken meat where it is consumed by humans. So for the last sixty years, American  consumers  who eat conventional chicken  have been swallowing arsenic, a known cancer-causing chemical. (http://www.phillyburbs.com/news/loc…)

Until this new study, both the  poultry industry  and the FDA denied that arsenic fed to  chickensended up in their  meat.  The fairy-tale excuse story we’ve all been fed for sixty years is that “the arsenic is excreted in the chicken feces.” There’s no scientific basis for making such a claim… it’s just what the poultry industry wanted everybody to believe.

But now the evidence is so undeniable that the manufacturer of the chicken feed product known as Roxarsone has decided to pull the product off the shelves (http://www.grist.org/food-safety/20…). And what’s the name of this manufacturer that has been putting arsenic in the chicken feed for all these years? Pfizer, of course — the very same company that makes vaccines containing chemical adjuvants that are injected into children.

Cancer Is Not A Disease! — It’s A Survival Mechanism

 

Mr. Moritz offers the open-minded person concerned about cancer a radically different understanding of what cancer really is.

According to Andreas Moritz, cancer is a desperate and final attempt by the body to stay alive for as long as circumstances permit — circumstances that are, in fact, in your control.

Today’s conventional approaches of killing, cutting or burning cancerous cells offer a mere 7% “success” rate for cancer remission, and the majority of the few survivors are “cured” for just a period of five years or less.

In his book, you will discover what actually causes cancer and why it is so important to heal the whole person, not just the symptoms of cancer. You will also learn that cancer occurs only after all other defense mechanisms in the body have failed, for obvious reasons. A malignant tumor is not a vicious monster that is out to kill us in retaliation for our sins or abuse of our body. As you will find out, cancer does not attempt to kill the body; to the contrary, it tries to save it. However, unless we change our perception of what cancer really is, it will continue to threaten the life of one out of every two people.

New research program to approach cancer studies differently

Researchers at ASU (Arizona State University) plan to study cancer using a different perspective as they begin work in a new research center on the Tempe campus.

Rather than studying cancer’s biological characteristics, researchers in ASU’s Center for Convergence of Physical Science and Cancer Biology will look into the physical science aspects of the disease, said Paul Davies, the center’s principal investigator.

The center will be funded by a grant from the National Cancer Institute worth $1.7 million annually for five years, Davies said.

The center’s main focus is a cancer forum made up of three workshops — the first of which will be held in December, he said.

“The primary purpose of the cancer forum is to bring together scientists from all over the world,” he said. “Not people necessarily working on cancer but just clever physical scientists, mathematicians, people like that who are used to thinking about complex problems and getting them to work by trying out various ideas.”

Davies said he hopes big breakthroughs will be made through the cancer forum.

“I’m not interested in finding out what people know about cancer,” he said. “I’m interested in finding out what people don’t know. That’s the important part.”

“Cancer, until recently, has been approached from the genetic-research perspective, so this is one of the early steps for deviating from that type of research and looking at cancer from a physics perspective,” he said.

ASU is one of 12 Physical Sciences-Oncology Centers receiving a total of $22.7 million in funding this year from the National Institutes of Health’s National Cancer Institute.

Larry Nagahara, program director for the Physical Sciences-Oncology Program of the National Cancer Institute, said the program was started because the National Cancer Institute believes cancer could be better understood if it were approached through different perspectives.

“One community that wasn’t really engaged in the cancer community were the physical scientists and the engineers,” he said, “so this call is basically trying to invite them to come and have their unique perspectives together with the cancer biologists and oncologists to see how they can answer some major questions in cancer.”

Davies said the creation of Physical Sciences-Oncology Program is an extraordinary and courageous step by the National Cancer Institute. “It’s just what we need to see dramatic progress in a subject that has really resisted any major breakthrough in the decades it’s been researched,” Davies said.

The center’s research is important because cancer is a disease that affects everyone, he said.

“I think every family has somebody with cancer or who has died of cancer, so in terms of the human dimension, it does touch everybody,” he said. “At the end of the day … I would like to feel that we’re going to contribute in some way to improving the quality of life of cancer sufferers and removing it as one of the major killer diseases that’s out there.”

Fighting Cancer in a totally different way!

“Only 10 percent of people die from primary tumors. The real problem is when it spreads around the body. The problem of metastases.” Arizona State University’s Paul Davies, speaking at the Penn Club in New York.

I don’t think we need to cure cancer.

In fact, I don’t really think of cancer as a disease as much as an alternative form of living matter. We don’t need to cure it, we just need to manage it for long enough that people die of something else.”

“When cancer cells spread around the body, this is a physics problem. These cells are microscopic bodies being swept along in this raging torrent. They wriggle around, they latch on to surfaces, they drill their way through. This is the sort of language that physicists and engineers can understand.

Cancer research is dominated by genetics and biochemistry. That’s why we have the therapies, genetic and chemotherapy, as the main approaches. I think that we can open up a whole new frontier just by thinking about the problem in a totally different way.

Remember what Einstein said:

1 Insanity-by-Einstein

Susan Lim issued bills in ‘arbitrary, opportunistic’ manner

SINGAPORE – The Court of Three Judges, after analysing the bills issued by Dr Susan Lim, said the invoices were issued in an “unsystematic, arbitrary and, ultimately, opportunistic manner”.

Dr Lim has lost her battle to overturn her conviction for overcharging a royal patient from Brunei.

Dr Lim faced a total of 94 charges of professional misconduct …. found her guilty of professional misconduct over the $24 million bill.
