Bladder cancer destroyed by the common cold virus, researchers say

Scientists from the University of Surrey and Royal Surrey County Hospital took a naturally-occurring strain of the common cold, coxsackievirus (CVA21), and used it on 15 cancer patients with non-muscle invasive bladder cancer (NMIBC). The disease is the 10th most common cancer in the UK.

The patients were given CVA21 through a catheter in their bladders a week before they were scheduled to undergo surgery to remove their tumors.

Examining the samples after surgery, the scientists could see that the virus only targeted the cancerous cells, infecting them and then replicating itself, causing the cancer cells to rupture and die. Urine samples taken during the trial showed ‘shedding’ from the virus, which demonstrates that the replicated virus continued to target and attack other cancerous cells in the body.

The Steamboat Geyser in Yellowstone National Park is approaching a record number of eruptions

The world's tallest active geyser -- whose major eruptions shoot water more than 300 feet into the air -- is known to be unpredictable. But if there was ever a year to witness Steamboat's spectacular surge of water, this might be it.

We're just over halfway through 2019 and the Steamboat Geyser has already erupted 25 times, according to the US Geological Survey. That puts it on track to surpass last year's record of 32 eruptions -- the largest number ever recorded in a year. The record before that was 29 eruptions in 1964.

The Steamboat Geyser erupted seven times just last month alone, the USGS said. June's outbursts, which occurred on the 1st, 7th, 12th, 15th, 19th, 23rd, and 28th, also smashed the record for the shortest interval between eruptions -- just over three days.

Facebook “Fact-Checker” Misinforms Users about Vaccine Safety

Those in the mainstream discourse calling for efforts to combat misinformation about vaccines actually have no problem at all with misinformation. Transparently, what they instead have a problem with is any information that might lead parents to conclude that strictly complying with the routine childhood vaccine schedule recommended by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) might not be in the best interests of their child. They have no problem with lies about vaccine safety and effectiveness as long as it’s intended to persuade parents to vaccinate their children.

Some Like It Hot: Study Finds Chili Peppers May Slow Lung Cancer Development

By John Anderer

Spicy food isn’t for everyone. Some people love a little danger with their dinner, while others prefer to play it safe and avoid fiery ingredients like chili peppers. However, a new study finds that chili peppers may have a much more important benefit than making your dinner taste better: the ability to fight lung cancer.

The study out of Marshall University finds that the natural compound responsible for chili peppers’ distinctive hot flavor, called capsaicin, may also impede the spread of lung cancer...

They Couldn’t Ban Kratom, So Now the Feds Are Trying to Stop the Source

By Jake Anderson

Despite the fact that it’s been used by indigenous people for generations, kratom (Mitragyna speciosa) was relatively unknown to a critical mass of Americans until 2016, when suddenly the Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA) and the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) took an aggressive interest in making the Southeast Asian plant a scheduled drug.

Led by then-Commissioner Scott Gottlieb, the FDA took up the mantle and attempted to restrict kratom via aggressive regulations. While the federal government continues to misrepresent the science behind kratom research, the DEA is not likely to recommend criminal scheduling on kratom until newly commissioned studies are completed, which will likely be several years from now...

From Sunscreen to Bug Spray: How To Protect Your Kids From Chemical Poisoning This Summer

By Jennifer Giustra-Kozek, LPC, NBCC

Summertime should be a carefree time of year as we head out on vacation, go to the beach, or hike in the woods. We shouldn’t have to worry about the products that we use or the environmental toxins that might be hanging around. Unfortunately, in today’s world, our children’s bodies are getting bombarded with neurotoxins and cancer-causing chemicals at every turn. If we compare total body burden to a container, we can only fill it to capacity. Anything above capacity causes spillover or, in other words, allergy symptoms and ultimately sickness.

Large-Scale Study Shows Spending At Least 2 Hours a Week in Nature “Crucial” to Health and Wellbeing

By Matt Agorist

A new large-scale study was published in Scientific Reports earlier this month which showed that spending at least two hours a week in nature is key to promoting health and wellbeing. The study was funded by the National Institute for Health Research and led by the University of Exeter in the UK.

The study found that those who spend at least 120 minutes a week are significantly more likely to report good health and higher psychological wellbeing than those who don’t visit nature at all during the week. The two-hour mark was substantial in the study as researchers noted that spending less than this amount of time had no such benefits...

Is Type 1 diabetes a symptom of a virus in the gut?

For over a million Americans, type 1 diabetes is a fact of life. Type 1 diabetes, which is also sometimes called “insulin-dependent diabetes,” can strike anyone, at any age — seemingly, without warning. In the United States, 40,000 new cases of type 1 diabetes are diagnosed every year. But new research shows that the occurrence of type 1 diabetes may not be as random as it seems. Scientists from Columbia University say that certain viruses that linger in the gut could predispose children to develop type 1 diabetes.

This shocking new research adds to a growing body of evidence that viral exposure can influence diabetes risk — and specifically, that intestinal microbial populations are incredibly influential in the onset of disease.

Sightseeing with a side of radiation: Buckets of radioactive uranium ore found at Grand Canyon National Museum; experts say there’s no cause for concern

It was recently revealed that bucketloads of uranium ore were found sitting near a taxidermy exhibit at the museum at Grand Canyon National Park. The three five-gallon buckets looked a bit like paint buckets that someone might have forgotten to put away, but they didn’t sit there for a weekend or a couple months – they were there for almost 20 years, exposing countless people to radiation.

It was the teen-aged son of a park employee who was exploring the area with a Geiger counter who made the concerning discovery. When his counter spiked near the buckets, the uranium inside was discovered. One of the containers was so overloaded that it could not even close all the way.

Florida Governor Signs Bill to Legalize Growing Food on Your Own Property

By Andrew Wimmer

Gov. Ron DeSantis signed SB 82 on June 24th, legislation protecting the right of all Floridians to grow vegetables and fruit on their own property.

For one Miami-area couple, this represents the end of a years-long struggle that started when their town ordered them to dig up the garden they had been growing for 17 years. Starting July 1, any local ordinance that expressly limits or prohibits growing vegetables on one’s own property will be “void and unenforceable.”...

Deep-sea mining to turn oceans into ‘new industrial frontier’

The world’s oceans are facing a “new industrial frontier” from a fledgling deep-sea mining industry as companies line up to extract metals and minerals from some of the most important ecosystems on the planet, a report has found.

The study by Greenpeace revealed that although no mining had started on the ocean floor, 29 exploration licences had been issued covering an area five times bigger than the UK. Environmentalists said the proposed mining would threaten not only crucial ecosystems but the global fight against climate breakdown.

Louisa Casson, an ocean campaigner at Greenpeace, said: “The health of our oceans is closely linked to our own survival. Unless we act now to protect them, deep-sea mining could have devastating consequences for marine life and humankind.”

Cockroach ‘superbugs’ evolve to resist pesticides in ONE GENERATION, study finds

Cockroaches will soon be impossible to kill with standard pesticides, as they can develop cross-resistance to poisons they’ve never encountered within a single generation, an ominous new study has found.

German cockroaches – the small, quick-scurrying type whose traces can be found in 85 percent of US urban homes – are rapidly becoming impervious to pesticide chemicals, developing cross-resistance to a variety of insecticides within a single generation, a study published in Scientific Reports has demonstrated. And even the researchers who conducted the experiment are creeped out by the evolutionary capabilities of the ubiquitous six-legged pests.

ISS mold can survive 200 times more RADIATION than humans & contaminate other planets

The two most commonly found types of mold on board the ISS are fungi Pennicillium, which is used to make penicillin, and Aspergillus. The new research by Marta Cortesao, a microbiologist at the German Aerospace Center in Cologne, shows that both of these microorganisms can survive insane doses of radiation that can easily kill a human.

The scientist discovered this by bombarding the mold with X-rays and high-frequency ultraviolet light in a lab. The exposure to radiation is measured by gray, a unit describing how much energy something can absorb. Anything above half a gray causes radiation sickness, while five gray is lethal to humans. The mold, on the other hand, survived being blasted by X-rays up to 1,000 gray.

Ocean cleanup effort drags 5-TON 'ghost net' of abandoned fishing gear from the Pacific 'garbage patch' as part of huge plastic haul

A non-profit organization has scraped more than 40 tons of fishing nets and consumer plastics from a region of the Pacific Ocean that’s home to a massive debris field known as the Great Pacific Garbage Patch.

The haul includes everything from beer bottles and children’s toys to enormous ‘ghost nets’ – the abandoned fishing gear that can drift at sea for decades, trapping more garbage and marine wildlife in its path.

After a 25-day clean-up mission, Ocean Voyages says it captured thousands of pounds of plastic waste, including a five-ton ghost net.

The group plans to return next year to continue work at the site over a three-month period.

Insect apocalypse: German experts claim bugs in the country have died off by 76% since their records began in one of ‘Earth's worst extinction phases since the dinosaurs vanished’

Insects, which comprise two thirds of all species on Earth, have been dying off at alarming rates — with disastrous impacts on food chains and habitats.

This warning comes from German entomology enthusiasts, or bug catchers, who have collected 80 million insects in the Rhine countryside over the last 37 years.

Their collection is now a world-class scientific treasure and also evidence of what is described as one of Earth's worst extinction phases since the dinosaurs vanished.

The total annual biomass of flying insects collected has plummeted by 76 per cent since the insect-lovers began their meticulous studies.

Contact Lost With Three Starlink Satellites, Other 57 Healthy

Three of the 60 satellites SpaceX launched last month to begin its broadband megaconstellation have lost contact with ground control teams, a SpaceX spokesperson said June 28.

Those three satellites will deorbit "passively," the spokesperson said, meaning Earth's gravity and atmospheric drag will pull them down until they burn up in the atmosphere.

Observers had noticed some Starlink satellites had not initiated orbit raising after being released May 23 from a Falcon 9 upper stage into a 440-kilometer low Earth orbit. SpaceX said May 31 that all 60 satellites were initially responsive.

SpaceX's spokesperson, in their June 28 statement, said the company will intentionally deorbit two functioning satellites as well, in order to test the spacecraft's ability to propulsively deorbit.

Monster kauri log recovered deep in the ground near Kaikohe (NZ) to shed light on mysterious ancient event

A monster kauri log hauled out of the ground near Kaikohe could prove immensely important to science.

The log, which is 16m long and weighs 60 tonnes, was found during excavation for a new geothermal power station near Ng?wh? Springs earlier this year.

Last week, scientists completed a radiometric analysis to reveal the kauri stood between 41,000 and 42,500 years ago – making it the only tree found anywhere in the world that was alive during a mysterious shift in the world's magnetic field.

Called the Laschamp geomagnetic anomaly, this event resulted in huge and abrupt changes in atmospheric radiocarbon levels, and the Earth's north and south magnetic poles switching places.
