Do You Know About Clinical Cancer Trials?

all_members_map

My neighbor has been diagnosed with Leukemia and she is a complicated case. I told her there are places around the country that do clinical trials and I realized I forgot to post that information here. So here is the website  http://www.cancer.gov/clinicaltrials

There is so much going on and many people don’t know where to look. Teaching hospitals don’t like sharing information with other hospitals because of the grant money. Why does it always boil down to the money?  Stand Up to Cancer was started to address that issue. Check out Stand Up to Cancer’s webpage and see what’s happening over there as well.  http://www.standup2cancer.org/about_us/

Namaste!

Hemp Seeds — Healthy or Hype?

hemp_heartsI have been hearing  a lot about the health benefits of eating hemp seeds these days and a couple of grocery stores I shop at, carry them. I was talking with the produce guy at Ralph’s — too mainstream to carry something like that… yet — and we got to talking about hemp. I told him about seeing hemp seeds for sale in natural food stores and he raised a good question, I am not sure about — so I am throwing it out there to you dear readers. My produce guy said –” The government is not going to allow fertile hemp seeds to be sold in stores, so in order to make sure the hemp seed cannot be used to grow ‘weed’ — it will need to be irradiated. Radiation will kill off any nutritional value.” Hmmmm interesting point. But I do see advertisements for raw hemp seeds. Are the hemp seeds sold in stores the same seeds used to grow pot? I really have no idea but I think someone out in blogger land has the answer… So what say you???

Namaste!
