Jimi Hendrix - Live at Woodstock (1969)

August 18, 1969

All night the crowd has waited. Jimi Hendrix was to close the festival but there was endless delays. At last, as the sun rises on this spectacle of biblical proportions, Jimi takes the stage. But instead of the British Power Trio, it is The Gypsy Sun & Rainbows Band, making it's experimental debut. For those who stayed and for those who see this film, this will be his most celebrated performance.

One amazing show, if you have never seen this and for the younger generation that wasn't around for this, this is a must see! The Guitar God himself.

This report is from:

It sounds almost too good to be true: a cheap and simple drug that kills almost all cancers by switching off their "immortality". The drug, dichloroacetate (DCA), has already been used for years to treat rare metabolic disorders and so is known to be relatively safe.

It also has no patent, meaning it could be manufactured for a fraction of the cost of newly developed drugs.

Evangelos Michelakis of the University of Alberta in Edmonton, Canada, and his colleagues tested DCA on human cells cultured outside the body and found that it killed lung, breast and brain cancer cells, but not healthy cells. Tumours in rats deliberately infected with human cancer also shrank drastically when they were fed DCA-laced water for several weeks.

This does seem very amazing, but what's amazing is the very little coverage this seems to be receiving at the moment. Hopefully this may be the key to wiping out cancer once and for all.
