Duchenne muscular dystrophy is caused by a faulty gene that leads to progressive muscle weakness
May 14, 3017 – Researchers at the National Institutes of Health’s National Center for Advancing Translational Sciences (NCATS) and the University of Nevada, Reno School of Medicine (UNR Med) have demonstrated that a drug originally targeted unsuccessfully to treat cancer may have new life as a potential treatment for Duchenne muscular dystrophy (DMD).
The candidate drug, SU9516, represents a different kind of approach for treating DMD, a degenerative muscle disease that usually begins in childhood and has no known cure. It is caused by a faulty gene that leads to progressive muscle weakness, with death often occurring around age 25. Rather than trying to fix or replace the broken gene, SU9516 ramps up the muscle repair process, helping reinforce muscle structure.

(NaturalNews by: Ethan Huff ) The adverse event-deniers who insist that vaccines are 100 percent safe and never cause any problems in children clearly missed a little-known 1991 study published by the United States Government. This paper reveals a clear link between the popular Tdap vaccine for tetanus, diphtheria, and pertussis (whooping cough), and microcephaly, a neurological birth defect that in recent years authorities have been erroneously blaming on the Zika virus.
The National Center for Biotechnology Information (NCBI) offered up clear evidence at the time showing that the combination jab can cause not only brain damage in young children, but also heart problems, meningitis, and epilepsy. Epidemiological evidence from human case studies showed that within weeks or even days of getting the Tdap shot, children developed infantile spasms and other common symptoms of microcephaly directly related to the vaccine.

Many of us are familiar with the traditional healthy fruit, yellow bananas. We know bananas as a great source of potassium and are accompanied by their signature sweet taste, but they have a cousin that tastes even sweeter. Red bananas have a unique flavor, similar to yellow, but mixed with the taste of raspberries. They also provide more health benefits than the widely recognized, traditional banana.
Tory Tedrow, a registered dietitian and a certified nutrition support clinician for SugarChecked, says red bananas are sweeter tasting because they’re higher in sugar and calories.
“A red banana will have about 30 more calories and 8 grams of sugar more than a yellow one of the same size,” he told Medical Daily .
Ripe red bananas do not grow in the U.S., with many imported from producers in East Africa, Asia, South America and the United Arab Emirates. Yellow bananas account for 95 percent of the banana varieties sold, making red bananas one of the most mysterious fruits. Although they’re rare, red bananas possess different nutritional values than yellow bananas when it comes to vitamin C and potassium.
The raspberry-banana flavored fruit offers a number of health benefits that make them a great addition to any fruit bowl. Continue reading “5 Health Reasons To Eat Red Bananas”
