Amazing non-toxic liquid kills cancer cells

“If I could pick only one treatment to cure my cancer, this would be it,” says a top expert on alternative cancer treatments. It’s one of the world’s most powerful cancer cures, according to research conducted by a scientist at the Detroit Institute of Cancer Research. Click here now and watch a new video presentation about this amazing discovery. Even the mainstream National Cancer Institute has confirmed that this do-it-yourself treatment kills cancer cells. My investigators have been searching for six years, and NO at-home treatment is better, as far as we’ve been able to confirm — after looking into more than 400 alternative cancer cures. In fact, it’s likely that no treatment anywhere is better, even the ones provided by top alternative cancer doctors. Yet you can purchase this amazing breakthrough over-the-counter without a prescription. A 54-year-old terminal patient named Robert totally got rid of his cancer in six months. Another patient named Arch was told he had only a 15 percent chance to live. He’s still alive three years later with “no evidence of cancer in repeated CAT scans.” But of course mainstream medicine HATES alternative cures like this one.

Turtle and dugong strandings down in Queensland

Marine turtle and dugong strandings in Queensland are starting to slow down. Environment Minister Vicky Darling said the rate of marine strandings in Gladstone and throughout Queensland had declined in the past six weeks. ?We are seeing seagrass beds showing signs of recovery after they were virtually wiped out in some locations at the start of the year. ?And with the gradual return of the seagrass we?re also seeing a reduction in the numbers of reported sick and dead turtles and dugongs ? although there?s still a long way to go,? Ms Darling said. The most recent figures show that for the first 29 days in November there were 8 confirmed cases of stranded marine turtles in Gladstone, compared with 11 in October, 44 in September and 74 in August.
