More Good Than Bad News 

The good news is, a new technique for starving cancer cells and the discovery of a completely novel RNA trafficking process have given scientists two potentially very powerful new weapons against cancer and HIV (respectively).

Researchers have found that some of that excess weight may be due to bacteria in your gut, and affects a newly recognized system that could also be harnessed as a treatment. Me? I'm stocking up on antibiotics.

The bad news is, like so many other drugs, Zocor and Lipitor are dangerous when mixed with grapefruit. This has been long suspected, but this is the first regulatory action to be taken. Don't expect similar action in the US anytime soon: the drug companies that run the place make these drugs will protest.

Hey, landed on your blog, nice stuff. I found a cool new tool for our blogs... www.widgetmate.com It helps get latest news for our keywords directly on to our blog. I added it on mine. Worked like a charm.
