By now, nearly everyone interested in healthy living is aware of the recent research linking Monsanto's GMO corn to cancer tumors and an increase risk of premature death in both men and women. News of the research is spreading like wildfire across the 'net, and support for Proposition 37 -- which seeks to label GMOs in foods -- is growing by the day.
But the media has not yet reported on the everyday foods being sold in grocery stores right now and made with Monsanto's genetically modified corn (GM corn). Which foods are most likely to contain Monsanto GM corn? To answer this question, I visited a local grocery store in Austin, Texas and purchased 10 breakfast cereals made with high levels of non-organic corn.

New cancer 'wonder' drugs trigger cancer spread to bones
Most cancer drugs are used to hopefully kill tumors and keep malignancies from spreading. Unfortunately, new research from the Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis raises serious concerns that Big Pharma's highly touted class of cancer drugs known as IAP antagonists actually increases the risk of tumors spreading to bone.
"These investigational drugs are getting broad attention right now because they seem to be very effective against primary tumors," senior author Deborah V. Novack, MD, PhD, associate professor of medicine, said in a media statement "There is also excitement because until now, these drugs have not appeared to have major side effects."
However, the study by Novack and her research team (just published in the journal Cancer Discovery) reveals that while the IAP drugs target a protein that makes tumors vulnerable to death, the same protein also over-activates cells called osteoclasts which are responsible for tearing down bone. The risk for patients? Potentially, IAPs can trigger the bone weakening disease osteoporosis and, even more worrisome, they may cause metastasis of cancer to the bones.
Numerous IAP antagonists are already in early clinical trials against breast, lung, pancreatic, ovarian, prostate, liver, skin and blood cancers. While these phase one or two clinical trials look at the short-term safety and effectiveness of new drugs, the researchers say they may not catch bone metastasis. "These trials do not necessarily look for long-term effects of the drugs," Chang Yang, MD, PhD, staff scientist and the paper's first author said in the press statement. "If the cancer is going to metastasize to bone, it may take six months to two years to see that outcome. This may not be seen during the clinical trial."

The Sour Sop or the fruit from the graviola tree is a miraculous natural cancer cell killer which is 10,000 times stronger than Chemo.
The Catholic University of South Korea reports that Graviola was shown to selectively target the cancer cells, leaving healthy cells untouched. Unlike chemotherapy which is great news.
Natural cures not medicine!
