This One Plant Kills Cancer And Stops Diabetes Plus More!

Goya or Bitter melon (you may have also heard it referred to as Karela, Balsam Pear or Bitter Gourd), is commonly used for different beneficial health reasons. The melon is a very helpful food, but it has an extremely bitter taste. On first look the Goya looks like a cucumber but with ugly gourd – like bumps all over it. It thrives in humid and hot climates, so they are commonly found in South America and Asian countries.

Dr. Frank Shallenberger M.D., who specializes in Anti Aging Treatment and Alternative Medicine at The Nevada Center of Alternative & Anti – Aging Medicine, has used the fruit to fight pancreatic cancer. Dr. Shallenberger has found bitter melon to be an effective tool in inhibiting cancer cell growth and advises his patients to go for natural substances that inhibit cancer cell growth.

Dr. Shallenberger during his latest research found that when bitter melon juice is diluted to 5% in water, it proved to be very effective in fighting pancreatic cancer. Bitter melon was able to damage cancer cell lines by a rate of 90% and 98%. The University of Colorado tested bitter melon’s effect further and found a 64% reduction in the size of the pancreatic tumors.

Dr. Shallenberger’s research is just one of the many health benefits bitter melon has to offer. Bitter melon has also been used as a remedy for high blood pressure, asthma, skin infections, diabetes symptoms and stomach problems. The plant has been used as a traditional medicine in Africa, India, China and the southeastern US.

Bitter melons contain high amounts of nutrients, but are very low in calories.

It contains twice the beta – carotene of broccoli, it is rich in iron, twice the potassium of a banana and twice the calcium of spinach. Even with all of the beneficial nutrients it has to offer, one negative about the bitter melon is that its bitter taste detracts a lot of people from consuming it.

Amazing Grace, by Wintley Phipps

Video from KarmaTube

At Carnegie Hall, gospel singer Wintley Phipps delivers perhaps the most powerful rendition of Amazing Grace ever recorded. He says, "A lot of people don't realize that just about all Negro spirituals are written on the black notes of the piano. Probably the most famous on this slave scale was written by John Newton, who used to be the captain of a slave ship, and many believe he heard this melody that sounds very much like a West African sorrow chant. And it has a haunting, haunting plaintive quality to it that reaches past your arrogance, past your pride, and it speaks to that part of you that's in bondage. And we feel it. We feel it. It's just one of the most amazing melodies in all of human history." After sharing the noteworthy history of the song, Mr. Phipps delivers a stirring performance that brings the audience to its feet!

9 Buildings Currently Under Construction That Are Going To Change The World

Posted Oct 14, by Chelsea DeBaise

These buildings aren't quite finished yet, but when they are...they are going to be total GAME changers for the global skyline! 
World One should be completed within the next year, and it will be the tallest residential building in the world, complete with 117 floors.

This outrageously creative and totally gorgeous LUXURY HOTEL is going to be built within a quarry in China, with a waterfall cascading over the building's facade.

3. Lotte World Tower--Seoul

This building is going to be way higher than anything else in Seoul, South Korea. It will also have a pretty awesome observation all tall buildings should!

4. The Agora Garden Tower--Taipei

This building, which will be finished in 2016, is sending a pretty clear MESSAGE about the marriage between humans and mother nature. The building is shaped like a double helix while supporting gardens on every floor and recycling rainwater functions.

5. The Dubai Pearl--Dubai

Dubai has added another tremendous building to its skyline with this building, which won't be finished until 2016. It's shaping up to be a luxury hotel with a freaking SKY BRIDGE, as shown in the photo, overlooking the Persian Gulf. When the building's fi

The 3 Biggest Mistakes of Jejomar Binay

Jejomar Binay 3
I turned on the TV and let my kids watch the news with me. After a while, they exclaimed that “the people on TV makes the black man sound so bad. Are they racists, Daddy?”

They were actually listening to news reports about the former top man of Makati who is now the Vice President of the Philippines, and like always, every time the election draws near, there would always be negative news about the potential candidates for Presidency. It never fails.
I said ” No. You only say racist if it involves another race. In this case, the man is just naturally darker in complexion. Most Filipinos are either brown or darker.”
I’ve read from the Philippine Daily Inquirer that “the dumbest mistake of Jejomar Binay was to double-cross his vice mayor and bagman. The second big mistake was to allow himself and his family to become too greedy. And the third was to aspire to be president of this country.”
Most of us have probably heard from the news that the family is in FULL scrutiny right now for the alleged corruption the Binays are involved in especially that the former Vice Mayor of Makati has revealed facts that could not be explained by any of the members of the family that dominated Makati city.
We’ve heard about “word-class” buildings cionstructed under their administration that are not really high standard based on the findings of experts, a million peso house with even an elevator that would have been impossible to built from a councilor’s salary, a condominium unit WINNING from the same developer contracted to build one of their Makati buildings, and a lot more issues that keep coming to haunt them now that the run for presidency is nearing.

15. 600 “Ghost” Employees authorized by corrupt wife, Dra Elenita Binay and Amigas worth 3 million a month.

16. Binay’s wife has been LINKED to Php72.06-M in graft.
A FORMER whistle-blower in a high-profile graft corruption controversies turned-head of government’s financial watchdog, has linked the wife of Vice President Jejomar Binay, an incumbent, and several former Makati City officials to alleged deception in the public bidding for a Php72.06 million supply contract awarded by the city government in 2001.
17. Sandiganbayan graft case
Elenita Binay’s (and private businessmen Li Yee Shing, Jason Li and Vivian M. Edurise, and Ernesto Aspillaga’s) arraignment for graft charges was set by the Sandiganbayan’s 4th Division on January 18, 2008. Binay was charged with alleged anomalous PURCHASE of office fixtures and furniture for the new Makati City Hall from private contractor Office Gallery International from December 1999 to February 2000, regarding the acquisitions worth P13.25 million overpriced by P3.6 million.
18. Bogus charity Project-40 Million (sister cityhood )

20. Bogus charity Project-22 Million Lakbay Aral PACKAGE
21. Bogus charity Project-20 Million Ambulance to other Cities

25. SECURITY Services Company contract to the city Hall owned by the Son in Law (Tri-Force Security Agency)
26. MAINTENANCE Services awarded another son in Law (Red Hammer Construction and Services)

27. Binay mistress’ PHOTOS surface the internet. Irrelevant, but a fun addition to the stupidity.
Jejomar Binay 2
Some would say that this is a highly orchestrated shame campaign designed to ruin the family’s reputation especially that Binay is expected to run for the highest government position of the country. But the facts are very revealing, and until the Binays could submit a more credible explanation to ANSWER all accusations, the people will remain doubtful of their characters.

Would it affect the older Binay’s chances for the presidency. Yes! it probably will. Will the shame campaign extend to his children? Yes! it probably will. But knowing how people react and become emotionally involved, some may side with the underdog, while some may abstain. Some would prefer to remain mutual if they are friends with both parties, and only a few may become persistent in expressing their feelings and translate them into concrete acts.
Running for a government position, especially the highest position, was never an easy task. Even the popularity of Noynoy Aquino before did not help him today to prevent detractors from cursing him now. Did anybody became greedy for their own good. We know that everyone of them may be pocketing some of the taxpayers MONEYeither by using them for their own personal consumption, or abusing them to benefit only a few, including their friends, families and relatives. We also know that there are no permanent friends and enemies in politics so everyone should be wary of his or her every move. You simply cannot trust anybody especially when you’re corrupt.
The NEXT thing the Senate and the Ombudsman should do is to let VP Binay explain where he got his wealth. Failure to show evidence means all his assets and properties are all “Unexplained Wealth” which are subject for forfeiture by the government.
What is evident is that many of our government officials are not really ready and prepared to tell the world the entirety of their personalities. All of them obviously have something to hide.
For many, in this particular case, the skin color of the Binay family may actually reflect their true intentions towards the country – dark and shady.
I remembered a time when my photographer colleagues asked the bodyguards if it was alright to use camera flash to take PHOTOS of the Vice President (merely because they don’t allow it for the Presidency). They were worried Binay may not be captured good without a flash because of his dark complexion.
The future may not be so bright for them if these CONTINUE to spread. I am not a judge of a person based from their skin color but when you can’t seem to directly explain, you are meant to be buried in shame.
