    Do we have anyone on the site that is a part of this lawsuit against Monsanto?

      YaY!!!

      It is a beginning.

      Glysophate kills insects quickly. It tajes longer with people because we are so much bigger.

      I believe the sprayed food is also poisonous.

      Wow!!! That was quite an award!

      I quit using anything like Round-up years ago when I heard how dangerous it was for my dogs. I never really thought about it being dangerous to me.

      Here is an article about how Monsanto wriggled, for years, away from responsibility and threw the plaintiff and others under the bus .. for profit.

    A substance in cannabis 'could boost pancreatic cancer treatments'
    Scientists say cannabidiol could extend patients’ lives by a matter of years

    A substance found in cannabis plants might boost treatments for patients with pancreatic cancer, research in mice has suggested.

    Cannabidiol, or CBD, is not psychoactive, meaning it does not produce feelings of being high in those who take it. It is extracted from hemp plants and is legal in the UK, although a CBD product must be licensed before it can be advertised as having health benefits. At present, there are no licensed CBD-only medicines in the UK, but it is being used in a number of clinical trials, including for treating psychosis.

    Now scientists say CBD could boost the effect of drugs used to treat pancreatic cancer – a disease with a bleak prognosis. Only about 5% of those with the condition survive for five years, and around 80% die within a year of diagnosis.

    “It is very aggressive, so it is very important to find new therapies for this cancer,” said Dr Riccardo Ferro, first author of the research from Queen Mary University of London.

    While the latest study was conducted in mice, the team behind the research say that if the results are replicated in humans, the treatment could result in many patients having their lives extended by a matter of years.

    This is how I feel now. Like I'm swimming against the flow. Having to start treatment all over again.

      I was told I was "all done, good to go" back in 1988 after my first diagnosis. Then 6 months later I was back in treatments. After another year's worth of treatment, It was said again. That time it held for 18 years. I hope yours gets under control.
