Possible cure for Prostate cancer

This is big news, especially since this is the most common type of cancer among men. A new drug, called Abiraterone, can suppress Prostate cancer quite effectively on 80% of the patients.

Prostate cancer tend to be fatal, with its victims suffering so much pain, some need morphine to ease it. Chemotherapy doesn’t always works. But now, there’s hope for these sufferers.

Also there’s possibility that this new drug can be developed into a cure for breast cancer – I believe among the most common cancer on women.

And remember that there’s also immunotherapy – killing cancer tumours completely, by using the patients’s own special white blood cells.

Hopefully these new findings can be soon mass produced / practiced, to help many who’s in suffering.

Of course the best course of action is always prevention. In case of Prostate cancer, as luck has it, having sex a lot can really help 🙂
Ladies, I’m sure you will be most happy, in this case, to help your husband to be able to avoid this murderous form of cancer. I’m positively sure about it 🙂 (well, unless you have a deathwish for him, lol)

Enjoy !


Walking Fish on the Street

I thought I read the headline wrong. Turned out I got it right the first time.

Who would have thought ?

Catfish, or “Lele” in Indonesian, is a delicacy here. Lots of people love it. Heck, even my daughter likes it very much. Me? I couldn’t stand even the sight of it, brrr 🙂

But we never knew that it could survive on land, and even walk. Cool.


Rockstar Friar

Wow… that’s all I could thought of when I saw the article. Friar Cesare Bonizzi has been singing heavy metals for 10 years now. His band, Fratello Metallo (Metal Brother, nice pun), has now begun to gain worldwide fame. In the Italy’s “Gods of Metal” festival, Fratello Metallo showed up along with the likes of Iron Maiden and others.

Reuters is even showing a video recording of our rockstar, singing his songs. Don’t expect loads of headbangs or jumping around the set though, remember the friar is 62 years old 🙂

However, he manages to do about 100 – 150 concerts a year. This is quite an achievement for a man of his age. Also his music is distanced from Satanism, he tried to make his lyrics to be positive. The heavy metal fans are taking this quite well – fans were shouting his name on the “Gods of Metal” festival even before he began his performance.

Quote :

“I am religious and I am a priest but I am not doing this to convert people to Christ, to faith or the Church, but for them to try to understand life, to be able to enjoy it. Nothing more.”

A unique man, indeed.


DNA can be inaccurate for identifying criminals

This is another big news. DNA match has been hyped up by US law officials as 100% foolproof method of identifying suspects. This is not what has been found by Kathryn Troyer, State crime lab analyst.

A full DNA set is absolutely unique for every person on Earth. But a DNA profile, a tiny sample of a person’s full DNA set, is not. Most DNA profiles are only using 13 markers.

Unfortunately, turned out that the law officials has been using the later, while giving impressions that they’re using the former.

That’s the first problem. The second problem is related to incorrect use of statistic when finding a match in the DNA database. If you think the first problem is bad enough, this second problem makes it worse.

And there’s a third problem – there have been cases where the sample DNA from the crime scene has deteriorated, so not even the 13 markers are usable. In a case, a person was (falsely) accused of a crime based on as little as 5 (!) DNA marker match.

Clearly the right action is to correct the ways the DNA database is being used. Now we have powerful computers, so using more DNA markers should be possible.

However, in this case (in USA), the law officials instead are trying to cover up the issue. Reason? I guess because this can cause old, closed, cases to be reopened again.

I say if it will serve justice, then they’ll have to bear with it.

Hopefully when we have DNA database in Indonesia, we can learn from these mistakes and avoid it. Here’s one hoping.

  1. Ah, this is what is rare in blogosphere: a post about several old men. For all we know it’s ‘no country for old men'( thank you, ethan and joel coen, clsn).

    As for new cancer remedies and priests; though the news is upbeat, I remain sceptic.

    The drug is, according to the source I read, still in it’s experimental phase. Results seems to be very promising indeed.But this kind of news returns on a regular basis in the news media – and too often turns out to be by far too preliminary. So, I keep to the kind of prevention you recommend.

    And old priests ( although “old’? He is a rookie, 62, compared to the really weathered warriors. And not very special compared to other rockers. Aren’t his less holy colleagues Mick Jagger and Keith Richards still going strong?))doing a gimmick to promote their multinational, is sympathetic. Although I’ve seen this PR trick by clergymen in the sixties already: to no avail.

    (PS: As to the DNA topic: The data gathering mania ( plans in some countries – mine for instance- to create a DNA bank where the DNA ‘fingerprints’ of all citizen will be filed, for instance) is a problem of climate change dimensions. It’s a pretty silent, though chilling revolution, which may turn independent citizens in subjects at the will of good or bad authorities. Well, let’s not elaborate ..)

  2. Mawlana Hazar Imam is visiting Syria from 24th to 29th August 2008. and there will be Golden Jubilee Darbar during this visit.

  5. This is indeed very encouraging , your right prostate cancer is one of the leading causes of deaths among men. This medical finding can literally save millions of lives.

    And on top of that it may also cure breast cancer a leading killer of women. This will be a blessing for a lot of people.

  6. My uncle died because of prostate cancer last year , he never had a check up in his entire life , he keeps shrugging it away so when we begin to see the symptoms we finally convinced him for a check up it was already too late.

    This is very valuable information because this can help prevent prostate cancer.

  7. My father in law was diagnosed with prostate cancer at a stage 4+. He has had several prostate infections in the past and wouldn’t take care of it right away. So I am wondering if this was a sign of what was to come. He has since had surgery and was told that the cancer is gone. I hope so.

  8. my father, have cancer, blood cancer. we are very sad every time
    My father’s age 68 now. And the doctor said “he going die soon”
    Who know any way about blood cancer please help me and contact
    with me pls.

  14. As a person who is very much interested in forensic science the DNA section was really interesting for me. I totally agree with what you have written. I have been having the same issue with the way these things were done for a while now. Nice article. Thanks.

  15. this is a nightmare for every man out there. so happy about this good news and i hope it is not expensive like the chemo. there are some natural ways to prevent prostate cancer it can help too.

  17. Great post. Very very interesting. My eyes were glued to the screen from the beginning to the end. Loved the first and the last topic. Thanks for sharing the information with us. Cheers mate !!!

  18. Because about 10% of men have what is known as seminal vesicle invasion, meaning that the prostate cancer has either spread into the seminal vesicles or has spread around them, the seminal vesicles are typically removed during prostatectomy and are targeted during radiation therapy. The loss of the prostate and the seminal vesicles renders men infertile.

  19. Great Post. Loved the first, second and the third articles. I hope every lady reads the first article. hehe…
    Cheers buddy.

  24. Well certainly some awesome information there. The knowledge which you could extract from such articles is really something fascinating at times. so much to learn. Thanks for the information. Cheers

  25. There is no incurable disease…even cancer can be cured when the correct natural remedies are applied…remember, there is no drug that can cure…drugs do not cure…

  32. Great stuff. I loved every bit of your post. All the articles were awesome. I learned a lot from it. Thanks for sharing the information.

  33. Well, the possible cure for postate cancer is a huge uplifting moment for a number of people. But, I still stand by the thought of prevention is better than cure for a whole host of health related conditions.

    If you look at the majority of health issues, they are realted to excess weight, high blood pressure and cholesterol, and not enough exercise – which are all common with people who are over weight. Although this is a cure, people could probably look into losing a little bit of their weight and becoming a bit more healthier as a prevention rather than a cure.

  34. Thanks for the info on the prostate cancer drug. My dad was recently diagnosed so I’m rtying to help him do some research on what his options are.

  37. Cancer effects a person in different ways. It’s true it make the person weak physically. But i think the ways it hits your mentality is stronger as much as it put u down physically. Finally i’m glad these people are trying to do something for it. Good luck

  38. Great stuff. Love the articles. I learned a lot from your articles. Didn’t know that DNA tests can give false results. Thank you for sharing the information.

  40. Interestingly I came across this news about the walking fish in the street few days back. I was wondering what on earth was happening and the story then highlighted me on the real scenario. Floods really can be bring creepy things.

  55. Thank you for the sensible critique. Me & my neighbour were preparing to do some research about that. We got a good book on that matter from our local library and most books where not as influensive as your information. I am very glad to see such information which I was searching for a long time.This made very glad.

  57. This article has some topics which have correlation. It is about an experiment. The experiments can be taken place for some purposes. Some medicines needed to cure the sick people can be found through some experiments. Whatever the animals usually do can be known through experiments too. A person who becomes famous and expert has also done some experiments. The connection between DNA and the criminals can be decided after several experiments as well. The experiments are useful for our lives.

  58. The specific causes of prostate cancer remain unknown. A man’s risk of developing prostate cancer is related to his age, genetics, race, diet, lifestyle, medications, and other factors. The primary risk factor is age. Prostate cancer is uncommon in men younger than 45, but becomes more common with advancing age.

  61. I was working and had some free time and came across this post. Loved the articles. I like the picture of the catfish laying in the street. That’s not something you see every day.

  62. The site gives the information about cancer,its the most important site. Its also giving the information about breast cancer.This health topic are very useful.

  63. Hi,this is very informative post.Especially those suffering from the prostate cancer will found it very valuable.In this modern era,there are lots of scientific methods to identify the criminals.DNA test is very important method to identify the criminals.As this article suggests there should be a very large dB to maintain the criminals records.By means of the broadband connection,we can able to spread more awareness to people.Prevention is the best medicine than cure.By meas of awareness,the prevention methods can be successful.

  64. I completely agree with the above comment, the internet is with a doubt growing into the most important medium of communication across the globe and its due to sites like this that ideas are spreading so quickly cialas

  69. By the way the catfish is very strong fish, and it takes long time to die but we here have a lot of catfish in the rivers but we don’t eat this kind of fish.

  70. Those images are creeping me! Especially the fish on the streets. I however am glad because doctors have finally decided to make new researches into what concerns the DNA and cancer issues. for instance the drug rehab Los Angeles California has all the things put in order. Every person who has addiction problems and search for help, are free to come in. They upgrade the rehab center once in two weeks.

  71. There’s nothing wrong with the fish walking in the city, so to say. I think that the rain and the wind just brought it in there or someone must have dropped it. But by the way have you noticed that there are no longer pills filled with oil fish? I’m sure you remember those ones that our parents used to say that they’re for the memory. Well, recently I started buying magnesium oil from a specialized site and I take it with calcium and it’s doing me such a great benefit. I no longer feel tired or dizzy sometimes when I work overnight.

  72. Firefox is getting slower and slower. I’m using Google chrome instead, because I find Firefox slower and it’s affecting my work as a content writer.

  73. Walking fish on the street is very interesting post here .I am not getting what it is and how a fish can live without water.Really i am surprised to hear it.I think it is miracle for me to see fish walking on the street.

    Well, I surely got to start mine too

  86. Wow.. that was really neat way of putting it. Excellent!! My compliments. Always wondered as to how this would really be. You have really put across the point so well that you have made number of things quite clear. Of course will have to go through it properly a couple of times to actually gauge, but as of now I totally agree with your sentiment.

  91. What can I say that hasn’t already been written? Excellent information in the prostrate post, I doubt any ladies will be willing to help out. I ultra beneficial supplement is creatine, you should check it out. Creatine does much more for your health than just athletic stuff. I didn’t realize the catfish was just that, at first glance I thought it was a slug.

I’ve been asked me to do some research to build a case against using Websphere, and I was wondering if anyone knows of any white papers or journals that officially discourage its use. I can certainly say “Websphere Sucks!”, but need a bit more concrete evidence.

  95. That is the fitting weblog for anybody who needs to search out out about this topic. You understand a lot its nearly arduous to argue with you (not that I truly would need…HaHa). You undoubtedly put a new spin on a topic thats been written about for years. Nice stuff, simply great!

  96. Good to listen that there is a brand new medicine to cure Prostate Cancer. Base on what i’ve read Chemotherapy is in reality painful and high priced. Desire this new medicinal drug isn’t high priced as Chemotherapy, so those people who doesn’t have sufficient money and suffering with this infection would possibly have a chance to treatment themselves.
