Good News Post 1: Cancer Breakthrough

Starting today, and in order to emphasize that the news we are all watching on our television screens does not have to be all bad, if only they would show us the good stuff too, I will be posting a minimum of once a week an article about something wonderful that is happening in our world.

If we could concentrate more on the good stuff rather than on the bad (the mass media obviously know that it is easier to hook people into watching them 24/7 by continually repeating more of the same), without losing sight of the reality of what is happening, but simultaneously deciding to proactively look for the good, we would create another kind of energy in our lives.

When we gather with our friends, or chat on the phone, or send emails to others, how often do we mention the gloom and doom as opposed to how often we mention something uplifting? Are you with me? So let's start countermanding the heavy weights in the mass media and carry out a silent change of pace ourselves, by searching out the good news in the world ... and there are masses ... in order to do our part to change not only our personal energy, but also contribute to changing the general energy.

Today's post is about a discovery in cancer research that has gone through numerous phases: ridicule, uncertainty, admiration, and now: proof.

Researchers have shown that they can target cancer cells with tiny pieces of gold and destroy the cells by using John Kanzius' (click for much more information on his website) external radio-frequency generator.

The success clears a major hurdle in proving that the Millcreek Township inventor's device can be used to successfully treat cancer in humans.A scientific article about the targeting will be published today on the Web site of the Journal of Experimental Therapeutics and Oncology.

"I was pretty excited when the targeting happened," said Steven Curley, M.D., principal investigator for the Kanzius Project at M.D. Anderson Cancer Center in Houston. "It proves that this has the potential to work, and that it makes sense for us to continue pushing." read entire article here

Another source indicates that "Lead researcher Dr. Steven Curley, a professor of surgical oncology at M.D. Anderson Cancer Center in Houston, rated No. 1 in cancer treatment by U.S. News and World Report for four of the past six years, told supporters in a letter earlier this month that targeting nanoparticles to specific types of cancers has been accomplished.

"This will be the first manuscript that proves that we can target nanoparticles to a specific abnormality on cancer cells, and increase the killing by getting more nanoparticles into the cells," Curley said. " read entire article here

In November 2008, Kanzius was named one of the most important, influential, and promising people in science by Discover Magazine in their article The Amateur Scientists Who Might Cure Cancer—From Their Basements.
