(NaturalNews) It appears the U.S. government is officially declaring war on cancer by launching a major bureaucratic initiative aimed at sending cancer research to the moon.

One thing I find aggravating is the fact that CBD oil was available for sale on amazon a year or two ago, and now it's gone. Why? I thought it was legal? Oh. I just found this. Apparently it's only legal in 15 states. This is very strange because I thought CBD was not federally controlled (ie: not on the DEA schedule), so only cannabis-derived CBD was illegal as it would likely contain minute amounts of THC. This is how they are able to continue to sell hemp-oil which contains CBD, federally. Is CBD too far removed from delta9THC to fall under the analogue-act? If so, it's non-psychotropic, so then everything else that's non-psychotropic in cannabis would also be illegal along with endocannabinoids produced in your brain, which means all sorts of other substances in for example butter would be illegal too by transitive equality. I thought the line was drawn with psychotropic substancesas outlined by the UN 1971 Convention on Psychotropic Substances, to inform country policy on what was [...]
Sugar found in ketchup and Coke linked to breast cancer
Researchers find high-sugar Western diet may increase the risk of breast cancer
Both authors said that identifying the risk factors for breast cancer was a public health priority

A common sugar found in drinks such as Coke and food like ketchup, cereal bars and biscuits could be driving breast cancer, scientists warn.
The high-sugar Western diet may increase the risk of breast cancer and the potential for that cancer to spread to the lungs, the new study suggests.
Researchers found that when mice were given a sucrose-rich diet, similar to our own diet in the West, the mice showed increased levels of tumour growth and metastasis, when the cancer spreads.
• One drink a day increases the risk of breast cancer by 15 per cent
They also found that fructose in table sugar and high-fructose corn syrup found in a range of foods and drinks could be driving the disease.
Scientists at the University of Texas MD Anderson Centre gave groups of mice one of four different diets and found that at six months old, 30 per cent of those raised on starch-controlled diets had measurable tumours.
Of those mice which had been raised on a sucrose-enriched diet, 50 to 58 per cent had developed breast cancer.
"We found that sucrose intake in mice comparable to levels of Western diets led to increased tumour growth and metastasis, when compared to a non-sugar starch diet."
Dr Peiying Yang
The study, published in the online edition of the Cancer Research journal, also showed that cancers in mice on high sucrose or fructose diet were more likely to spread than those on starch-controlled diets.
One of the authors of the study, Professor Lorenzo Cohen, said: "We determined that it was specifically fructose, in table sugar and high-fructose corn syrup, ubiquitous within our food system, which was responsible for facilitating lung metastasis and 12-HETE production in breast tumours."
Co-author Dr Peiying Yang said that she believed this was the first study to investigate the direct effect of sugar consumption and effect on the development of breast cancer.
She added: "We found that sucrose intake in mice comparable to levels of Western diets led to increased tumour growth and metastasis, when compared to a non-sugar starch diet."
Both authors said that identifying the risk factors for breast cancer was a public health priority.

Until early last year, the website of a Brooklyn-based charity called the National Children’s Leukemia Foundation boasted that the organization had its own “biomedical cancer research center” where “leading scientists” were working on cancer treatments. A PowerPoint slide that the group’s founder, Zvi Shor, used in a presentation showed an office building where the research center was said to be located, with the words “Biomedical Cancer Research Center” across the side of the building.
Shor has now admitted that the group had no research center, nor any of its own scientists. A half-million dollar grant to an organization controlled by Shor’s sister in Israel had bought space a building in Petah Tikva, Israel, but no lab was built there. The picture on the PowerPoint slide? A Photoshopped fake.
In a settlement announced today by the office of New York State Attorney General Eric Schneiderman, Shor admitted that many of NCLF’s claims about the good work it did were empty. Instead, 85% of the $9.7 million it raised between 2009 and 2013 went to cover fundraising costs.
Under the terms of the settlement, which ends a lawsuit filed this July by the Attorney General’s office against NCLF and its officers,, the charity will now be dissolved. Its executives have agreed to pay back $380,000, and Shor and his son Shlomo Shor will be barred from ever again acting as an officer or director of any charity that raises money in the United States.
Schneiderman’s office sued NCLF and its officers in June, alleging that the group had used the “vast majority” of $10 million it had raised for “non-charitable purposes.” Shor admitted, as part of the settlement, that many of the programs that NCLF told donors and the public that it operated were either blown vastly out of proportion, or had never existed.
While phone solicitations and mailers boasted of an NCLF program that granted “the last wishes of children with cancer,” the group admitted that, between July 2009 and March 2014, only two “wishes” were granted: One for a laptop, another for a drip to Disney World. And while the group’s website claimed that it ran a bone marrow registry, Shor admitted to investigators that that wasn’t true.
Shor also admitted that claims on the group’s website, in a fundraising brochure, and in the PowerPoint presentation that it was running a “Cancer Research Center” were false. Some of the $655,00 money that NCLF sent to the Israeli group run by Shor’s sister did fund research at Ariel University in the occupied West Bank, [...]
As cannabis is taken more seriously as a medicine and a treatment, more people are taking a chance and using it as a treatment for terminal illnesses. This treatment has had overwhelmingly positive results for countless people who had no other hope of recovery. Every day more stories and scientific studies are appearing from all over the world where people of all ages, even young children, are cured of life-threatening illnesses with cannabis oil.
More often than not, these patients face legal penalties and even jail time for trying to better their lives. In the case of parents with children who have terminal illnesses, they are forced to break laws to get their kids the treatment that they need.
The father of a 2-year-old with late-stage cancer is facing jail time for using cannabis oil in an attempt to ease his daughter’s suffering.
Adam Koessler of Queensland, Australia is one of these parents who is facing potential prison time for attempting to save his child’s life with cannabis oil. Koessler’s 2-year-old daughter was diagnosed with stage-4 neuroblastoma; and when chemo was not working, he began giving her doses of cannabis oil after reading about how well it did for other people. Instantly he noticed remarkable results and an extreme improvement in her condition.
“The results were amazing, what we saw when Rumer was given the medical cannabis oil what nothing short of miraculous. Her cancer ridden little body was alive again — Rumer had almost instant quality of life…Her skin color came back, her eyes were sparkling again…We were certain after seeing these results that her recovery was entirely possible,” Koessler said.
Sadly, the hospital contacted the police and told them about what was happening, and they quickly arrested Koessler at the hospital for
possessing ‘dangerous drugs’ and for supplying them to a minor. After he was released on bail the terms of his release prevented him from seeing his daughter and they have removed him from any involvement in his daughter’s treatment.
He has attempted to send his daughter organic meals so she is more healthy to fight the cancer, but the meals have been rejected from the hospital and they prevent her from receiving them.
A petition demanding that the government drop the charges against Koessler and allow him to see his daughter has received over 201,928 supporters, and his case has caught the attention of people all over the world.
Koessler attempted to see his daughter again last week and was denied by the staff at the hospital.
Although the government and law enforcement are at the root of this problem by continuing to wage the war on drugs, the hospital and their staff have played a major role in this incident. In their arrogance, they rejected the possibility of a natural cure and have used the enforcement arm of the government to prevent these potential cures from being explored.
Those who would keep a potentially life-saving medicine from a suffering 2-year-old chi [...]
