Commonwealth Fund Study Debunked by National Center Expert
On the 6/17/14 edition of "Wilkow!" on Glenn Beck's Blaze TV network, David discussed the possible politics and methodology behind a new report by the Commonwealth Fund that purported to find American health care to be both the most expensive and lowest quality among 10 other "peer" countries. David called the report "utter rubbish." Host Andrew Wilkow saw the report as a means for the political left to continue to push American health care toward a government-run single-payer system. David agreed that the demonizing of American health care was an obvious goal of the report. He also noted that the way the report was put together — in which Britain was ranked the best peer — seemed to ignore important factors such as wait times, quality of care an conditions and factors such as cancer-survivability that would have made America look much better in comparison. This small excerpt from the "Wilkow!" program on the Blaze TV Network on 6/17/14, featuring the National Center's David Hogberg, has been posted under fair use guidelines for the purpose of non-profit, educational public debate by the National Center for Public Policy Research, a 501(c)(3) educational foundation under the Internal Revenue Code.

2014 Race for Grace 5K
Hundreds Came Out in Support of the Grace Oughton Cancer Foundation at the 9th Annual Race for Grace 5K. Join Us for a Look at this Heartwarming Fundraiser. The GOCF supports families fighting pediatric cancer by providing clinical, psycho-social, educational, wellness, financial, and logistical programs. The Grace Oughton Cancer Foundation is a registered non-profit organization that is dedicated to helping families fighting pediatric cancer by offering direct grants, research grants, education grants and grants to develop and improve local resources. The Grace Oughton Cancer Foundation was originally founded in January 2006 in order to support the family and health care needs of Grace as she fought Neuroblastoma, a rare and deadly form of cancer. While Grace’s valiant fight against Neuroblastoma ended in October of 2007, the dream to help other children fighting cancer did not die. Families suffer financial hardships from insurance denials, travel challenges and expenses, excessive time away from work, and lost wages. Here in Fredericksburg, families are forced to travel for even the most basic clinical procedures. More importantly their family endures stresses that are devastating. Simply keeping the family together is a monumental struggle. Pediatric cancer researchers are constantly under-funded and are desperate for money to try and develop new treatments. The GOCF has helped cancer families through the provision of direct assistance grants. We have also helped researchers develop cutting edge treatments by funding the Loneliest Road Campaign, a nationwide fundraising and awareness campaign for Dr. Cheung's immunotherapy work at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center. The Directors of the GOCF now have the vision to help local families conquer all of these challenges through the development of a full-service pediatric field clinic here in our region, providing clinical, psycho-social, financial, wellness, and logistical support. We are building this infrastructure piece by piece and it will become a reality, but we can’t do it without your help. Please participate in the Foundation's fundraising events to help build the dream. The Grace Oughton Cancer Foundation, voted the 2008 Best Children's Charity by the Fredericksburg Parent and Family Magazine, is a non-stock corporation registered with the Commonwealth of Virginia’s State Corporation Commission and is a 501(c)3 tax-exempt charitable organization. Our Federal Tax ID number is 20-5721036.

Prostate Cancer Foundation of Australia - prostate cancer support RUNNING FOR LIFE
Hi there, I am running the city to surf this year with the intent of raising money for Prostate Cancer Foundation Australia (PCFA). Your help is needed and appreciated Greatly. Before I decided to do this run I didn't know my dad is awaiting the results from a Biopsy himself. I pray that this will be NEGATIVE, but this has given me extra motivation to run harder and raise harder this year. Your support will be noted and I will be running hard for you. Strained ligaments or not (at the time of this post). DONATE HERE: http://everydayhero.com.au/mike_dudley612 Our vision, mission and values PCFA is dedicated to reducing the impact of prostate cancer on Australian men, their partners, families and the wider community. We do this by: • Promoting and funding world leading, innovative research into prostate cancer • Implementing awareness campaigns and education programs for the Australian community, health professionals and Government • Supporting men and their families affected by prostate cancer, through evidence-based information and resources, support groups and Prostate Cancer Specialist Nurses PCFA relies on the generosity of individuals, the community and partnerships, such as those with the Movember Foundation and Commonwealth Bank, to carry out our essential work. PCFA's five values are: • Integrity • Optimism • Compassion • Respect • Commitment The Prostate - What is it? The Prostate is an organ forming part of the male reproductive system. It is located immediately below the bladder and just in front of the bowel. Its main function is to produce fluid which protects and enriches sperm. In younger men the prostate is about the size of a walnut. It is doughnut shaped as it surrounds the beginning of the urethra, the tube that conveys urine from the bladder to the penis. The nerves that control erections surround the prostate. There are four main disorders of the prostate. All can have similar symptoms, which may include one or more of the following: • Waking frequently at night to urinate • Sudden or urgent need to urinate • Difficulty in starting to urinate • Slow flow of urine and difficulty in stopping • Discomfort when urinating • Painful ejaculation • Blood in the urine or semen • Decrease in libido (sex urge) • Reduced ability to get an erection Most men tend to accept the onset of one or more of these symptoms as being a natural consequence of ageing. However, anyone experiencing any of the above symptoms is advised to consult a doctor without delay. Early expert diagnosis and treatment is important and may avert potentially serious health consequences. • Each year in Australia, close to 3,300 men die of prostate cancer - equal to the number of women who die from breast cancer annually. Around 20,000 new cases are diagnosed in Australia every year. • Each day about 32 men learn news that they have prostate cancer - tragically one man every three hours will lose his battle against this insidious disease • One in 9 men in Australia will develop prostate cancer in their lifetime • Prostate cancer is the most common cancer in Australian men and is the second most common cause of cancer deaths in men • As many men die from prostate cancer as women die from breast cancer but... a national survey by PCFA in 2002 showed that while 78% of women felt well informed about breast cancer -- only 52% of men felt informed about prostate cancer • The chance of developing prostate cancer increases: o as men get older. o if there is a family history of prostate cancer eg a man with a father or brother diagnosed with prostate cancer • Early, curable prostate cancer may not have symptoms. While younger men are less likely to be diagnosed with it, they are more likely to die prematurely from it • Simple testing by a GP can indicate prostate cancer • Early detection can be achieved with PSA (Prostate Specific Antigen) blood test or DRE (Digital Rectal Examination) testing. Our research in 2002 shows that only 10% of men surveyed between the ages of 50 and 70 had taken these tests in the previous year. Early detection is the key to enabling better outcomes and potential cure of prostate cancer. Accordingly, PCFA recommends that men at 50 with no family history of prostate cancer, and men at 40 with a family history, should seek voluntary annual assessments in the form of a Prostate Specific Antigen (PSA) blood test together with a Digital Rectal Examination (DRE). It can be life threatening to wait for symptoms to appear before seeking assessment. What testing methods are available? There is currently no population based screening for prostate cancer and this leads to confusion amongst men and their doctors. There are issues related to testing and treatment which should be discussed prior to making a decision whether to be tested.

Kentucky Cancer Program:  Services
The Kentucky Cancer Program (KCP) serves every corner of the Commonwealth with information and services to reduce the impact of cancer. Created by legislation enacted in 1982, KCP was established to reduce cancer incidence and mortality through education, research, and service. The program is administered jointly by the University of Louisville James Graham Brown Cancer Center and the University of Kentucky Lucille Parker Markey Cancer Center. KCP has 13 offices across the state,(insert KCP logo) staffed by cancer control specialists. We coordinate cancer prevention and early detection programs; offer patient and family services; professional education and training; and mobilize communities through coalitions and partnerships to address local cancer problems. KCP is recognized nationally as a unique program that is state-funded, university-affiliated, and community-based. The partnership with Kentucky's two major academic institutions (U of L and UK) and university cancer centers enables KCP activities to be based on science, driven by the latest and most accurate cancer data, and to serve as a laboratory for population-based research. KCP operates through a network of 13 regional offices staffed by trained and experienced cancer control specialists who provide local leadership on cancer prevention and control initiatives for all of Kentucky's 120 counties. KCP works closely with the Kentucky Cancer Registry and 15 District Cancer Councils across the state to identify and develop interventions to address cancer problems. KCP provides a range of cancer programs to health professionals, the public, and patients and families. Dedicated to education, research, and screenings, KCP establishes partnerships with the American Cancer Society, Kentucky Department for Public Health, the Kentucky Cancer Registry, the National Cancer Institute's Cancer Information Service, Susan G. Komen for the Cure, Lung Cancer Alliance, and other national, state and local organizations. KCP is an important partner in the Kentucky Cancer Consortium (KCC), the state's leading cancer organization, and helped draft the initial Cancer Action Plan that led to its formation. KCP plays a major role in linking Kentuckians with cancer resources through personal contact at our offices, community health fairs and events. KCP also provides the Pathfinder, an online tool that enables users to search by county for cancer-related resources in screening, information and referral, patient assistance, medical care, survivorship and support groups, and national and state resources. KCP maintains District Cancer Councils (DCC) in each of the 15 Area Development Districts to offer vital support for strategic planning to address local cancer problems and to implement statewide initiatives in every region. Representatives serving on the councils are from county and district health departments, hospitals, government agencies, health care providers, universities, businesses, labor unions, schools, tobacco coalitions, and others. Cancer survivors are also represented. Working in collaboration with these partners, KCP leverages resources to mobilize communities. Every two years, KCP reports to the Commonwealth on its statewide efforts. Tracy Tubbs, Cancer Control Specialist, and the Kentucky Cancer Program is working to identify cancer problems and mobilize communities into action. Funded by the General Assembly and jointly administered by the James Graham Brown Cancer Center at the University of Louisville and the Lucille Parker Markey Cancer Center at the University of Kentucky, KCP focuses specifically on the state's cancer problems. Paducah 2 Television is produced through the facilities and administration of West Kentucky Community and Technical College.

Measuring the unmeasurable and improving the unknown: How to bring hard data to hospice care
Cicely Saunders Institute seminar by Professor David Casarett, Director, Hospice and Palliative Care, Penn Medicine, Professor of Medicine, Perelman School of Medicine, University of Pennsylvania Title: Measuring the unmeasurable and improving the unknown: How to bring hard data to hospice care in the United States Dr Casarett’s major research interest is understanding and improving the way that health systems care for patients near the end of life. His work has included studies of hospice and hospice alternatives, as well as a randomized controlled trial of a decision aid to improve end of life care. Dr. Casarett has been the PI for a nationwide study to develop a valid and reliable technique to assess the quality of end-of-life care that the Veterans’ Administration provides, as well as for NIH- and VA-funded projects to understand how end-of-life services can be more patient-focused. Dr. Casarett is the Principal Investigator for CHOICE (Coalition of Hospices Organized to Investigate Comparative Effectiveness), a national research network whose goal is to define safe and effective hospice care. He is also the recipient of a Center for Medicare and Medicaid Innovation grant for a program (CLAIM: Comprehensive Longitudinal Advanced Illness Management) to improve the care of patients with advanced cancer. Dr. Casarett’s research has been supported by the VA, NIH, AHRQ, the Paul Beeson Physician Scholars Program, and by grants from the Hartford Foundation, the Aetna Foundation, the Commonwealth Fund, and the Greenwall Foundation. Dr. Casarett is also a recipient of the Presidential Early Career Award for Scientists and Engineers, the highest honour given by the US government to researchers in the early stages of their careers. Although the US hospice community comprises more than 3500 hospices serving approximately 1.6 million patients every year, there is no standardized method of data collection or reporting. As a result, it is very difficult to know whether patients are getting optimal care, or how hospices' care varies. The CHOICE network (Coalition of Hospice Organized to Investigate Comparative Effectiveness) was created to facilitate data collection and reporting in order to define best practices.

Subscribe to Transhumanism Videos ► https://goo.gl/a5rcck Become a Transhumanist ► https://goo.gl/bzcLkf David Sinclair, Ph.D. is a Professor of Genetics at Harvard Medical School and Founding Director of the Paul F. Glenn Center for the Biological Mechanisms of Aging at Harvard. He is also a Conjoint Professor at the University of New South Wales, Honorary Professor, University of Sydney, and Co-Chief Editor of the journal Aging. During his undergraduate studies and his PhD at one of Australia’s leading universities (UNSW), he received the highest grades and won a national prize for his work in the fields of Biochemistry and Molecular Genetics (CSL and The Commonwealth Prizes, respectively). He was the first non-US citizen to be awarded a prestigious Helen Hay Whitney Fellowship, allowing him to leave Australia in 2005 to work with Lenny Guarente at M.I.T. where he discovered a cause of aging in yeast, a first any organism. The work led the team to discover genes called the “Sirtuins” that enhance performance and the fitness of organisms and slow their pace of aging. At the age of 29, he was recruited to Harvard Medical School and shortly thereafter became Founding Director of the Paul F. Glenn Laboratories for Aging Research, a group that now includes four labs at Harvard and a consortium of 11 universities across the country. He is now a fully tenured professor in the world’s leading genetics department. Dr. Sinclair’s research is focused primarily on understanding genes that fight disease and aging, with a focus on treating the major causes of death and disability. These include diabetes, cancer and cardiovascular disease. He studies cellular energy production, learning and memory, neurodegeneration as well. He has won awards for his work understanding why we age, for showing that the Sirtuins can be activated by agents such as resveratrol (from red wine) and for understanding how diet and exercise can be mimicked by a drug. More recently his work has branched out to understand why stem cells stay young, how to engineer the human genome, bioinformatics, how to reverse aging, and how to enhance human fitness. He regularly lectures at Harvard, serves on NIH grant review panels, and has directly mentored more than 70 postgraduates over the past 20 years, with 30 researchers currently under his direct supervision. He is a board member of the American Federation for Aging Research, a Founding Editor of the journals Aging and Cell Stress, and has received more than 25 awards including the CSL Prize, The Australian Commonwealth Prize, a Helen Hay Whitney Postdoctoral Award, a Leukemia Society Fellowship, a Ludwig Scholarship, a Harvard-Armenise Fellowship, an American Assoc. for Aging Research Fellowship, The Nathan Shock Award from NIH, Scholarships from The Ellison Medical Foundation, The Merck Prize, the Genzyme Outstanding Achievement in Biomedical Science Award, a "Bio-Innovator award", the David Murdock-Dole Lectureship, the Fisher Honorary Lectureship at UCLA, a MERIT Award from the National Institute on Aging, the Denham Harman Award for Gerontological Research, the “ASMR Medal” from the Australian Society for Medical Research, a Knowledge Nation 100 Recipient, an ambassador for business events (Sydney), the Kersten lecturer (USC). He is considered a leading entrepreneur of his generation having founded and co-directed nine biotechnology companies since 2005 that have attracted more than US$2B in investment and are working to improve the human condition by treating diabetes, malaria, cancer, obesity, infertility, rare childhood diseases and aging. In 2014 he was listed by TIME magazine as “one of the 100 most influential people in the world”.

FTC: Family raised $187M for cancer, spent it on themselves
By: CBS 21 Web Staff and The Associated Press WASHINGTON, D.C. -- Federal investigators say that a Tennessee man and his family used much of the $187 million they raised for cancer patients to buy cars, luxury cruises, pay for college tuition and employ family members with six-figure salaries. Officials said it was one of the largest charity fraud cases ever, involving all 50 states. According to the Federal Trade Commission, James T. Reynolds Sr.; his ex-wife Rose Perkins; and son Jim Reynolds II, raised money through the Cancer Fund of America in Knoxville, Tennessee; Cancer Support Services, Inc.' The Breast Cancer Society in Mesa, Arizona; and the Children's Cancer Fund of America in Powell, Tennessee. In an online statement, The Breast Cancer Society denied any wrongdoing, but said it was suspending operations because the investigation was a distraction. The other groups didn't respond to requests for comment. Pennsylvania Attorney General Kathleen Kane said combined settlement payments of approximately $914,000 will be made. The three will be prohibited from managing charitable assets in the future. "Everyone has been affected by cancer in one way or another," Kane said. "That is what makes this so unfathomable. To take not only from hard-working Americans but sick women and children as well, that is something I will not stand for." Kane said a portion of any money collected through settlements or after trial will be granted to charities that have a proven track record of providing assistance to cancer patients. A portion will also be used to cover costs incurred by the investigating states. Kane reminded Commonwealth residents to research a charity before making a contribution. "There are several resources a donor can use to make an informed decision, including reviewing financial information about charitable organizations that is filed with Department of State, Bureau of Corporations and Charitable Organizations," Kane said. Other consumer protection groups, such as the Better Business Bureau, Charity Watch, and Charity Navigator also provide information on charitable organizations.

He is the owner of Paradigm Naturopathic Medicine and currently in private practice in Vernon BC. Corrie Yelland used cannabis oil extract to cure herself of rare forms of cancer. She was diagnosed in July 2011 with Anal Cancer and was given 2-4 months to live if she did not do radiation. The doctor told her she had a “death wish”, that she was going to die and walked out. So she made and started taking Cannabis Oil and waited a year to go back to doctor, and then was told she was cancer free. Subsequent biopsies confirmed no trace of cancer. She said to herself if this worked, she would spend the rest of her life telling people about this. Which is what she does. She receives thousands of emails and speaks with hundreds of people a week from around the world. She has played a part in saving well over 1000 lives worldwide and those are just the ones she is aware of as many people don’t get back to her, and then she will hear through the grapevine they are cancer free. The youngest person she has had the pleasure of seeing through to cancer free was 2 months old. The eldest was 86. As well as continuing to do this work, 12-14 hours a day, 7 days a week, she does a podcast, with her co host Ian Jessop, called Cannabis Health Radio 5 days a week, interviewing patients who have used cannabis to cure or assist in their various health conditions, as well as experts in the field. Paula is living her life on Purpose every minute of everyday. Paula has “woke up” to why she is here and her role in this lifetime. After being diagnosed with breast cancer in August 2012, Paula chose a path that would require research, determination and surrender. She has done many modalities in order to support her body, mind and soul into full healing. Paula’s philosophy on healing any disease is to plunge deep into the dark, into yourself in order to find the answers and the light. When the emotional and spiritual heals the physical will follow, if you are supposed to be here at this time. Paula’s work now entails using her nursing, coaching, nutrition and personal experiences to assist others in healing themselves at a cellular level. Paula can be found working at the Medical Cannabis Clinic her and her husband opened in their city, spiritual/life coaching, energy work, yoga, breath work, sound therapy, hanging out with her grandchildren and travelling the world with her other.

UK at the Half with Kentucky LEADS Collaborative
Dr. Jamie Studts discusses the Kentucky LEADS Collaborative with Carl Nathe during UK at the Half during the UK Wildcats' November 30th basketball game against Providence College. UKATH for Sunday, Nov. 30- Providence College at UK Dr. Jamie Studts Discusses $7 Million Lung Cancer Research Grant ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ Carl Nathe: Thanks, Keith… Dr. Jamie Studts: This project brings together expertise from numerous disciplines and numerous institutions. We have those with specific medical expertise and oncology, nursing expertise, educational expertise, different disciplines and perspectives that are brought to this project and will play a vital role in its ultimate success. Nathe: THAT'S DR. JAMIE STUDTS UNIVERSITY OF KENTUCKY COLLEGE OF MEDICINE FACULTY MEMBER IN BEHAVIORAL SCIENCE AND DIRECTOR OF THE KENTUCKY LEADS COLLABORATIVE. LEADS, STANDS FOR LUNG CANCER, EDUCATION, AWARENESS, DETECTION AND SURVIVORSHIP. THE COLLABORATIVE IS WORKING ON A THREE YEAR $7 MILLION RESEARCH PROJECT SUPPORTED BY A GRANT FROM THE BRISTOL- MYERS SQUIBB FOUNDATION'S BRIDGING CANCER CARE INITIATIVE. THE COLLABORATIVE INCLUDES THE UK MARKEY CANCER CENTER, THE UNIVERSITY OF LOUISVILLE'S JAMES GRAHAM BROWN CANCER CENTER AND THE LUNG CANCER ALLIANCE. KENTUCKY HAS MORE CASES OF LUNG CANCER THAN ANY OTHER STATE AND ITS LUNG CANCER MORTALITY RATE IS NEARLY 50 PERCENT HIGHER THAN THE NATIONAL AVERAGE. Studts: We formulated a plan to really address three aspects and the first is primary care provider education. To help our primary care providers obtain the most up to date information about comprehensive lung cancer control. The second component of the project is a survivorship care initiative and that is working directly with individuals who have been diagnosed with lung cancer as well as their caregivers. Really focusing on survivorship with an optimistic look that they will become lung cancer survivors, long term survivors. The third piece of the project has to do with new opportunities in lung cancer screening, using low dose computed tomography to make sure that Kentuckians have ready access to high quality lung cancer screening opportunities. They really have a chance to identify lung cancer early, get early treatment and improve our outcome substantially. Nathe: DR. STUDTS SAID THIS THIRD ASPECT COULD HAVE A HUGE IMPACT. Studts: The first really sincere game changer in lung cancer care since the Surgeon General's report on tobacco in 1964. Nathe: WHAT THE LEADS COLLABORATIVE LEARNS HERE IN THE COMMONWEALTH WILL BE SHARED WITH THE REST OF THE NATION Studts: We want to develop and evaluate programs that can be adopted readily by other states that share a similar burden and a similar passion for reducing the impact of lung cancer. Nathe: RESEARCH TOGETHER WITH COMPASSION AND SUPPORT, THE KENTUCKY LEADS COLLABORATIVE, WORKING TOGETHER TO REDUCE THE BURDEN OF LUNG CANCER IN KENTUCKY. 'Seeing Blue… I'm Carl Nathe with UK at the Half.'

Private Cord Blood Banking
Private cord blood banking has been available for many years. It as been advertised very heavily. But is it an investment or another case of 'just in case syndrome'. In this video Dr Schembri Wismayer explains the rational behind cord blood banking, when and were it can be used. Dr Pierre Schembri-Wismayer studied medicine where his main interest and excellence was in the basic medical sciences and pathology. Following his housemanship (foundation), he did a month of voluntary work with the Swedish Rotary Doctor Bank in Kenya on the Somali Border and then read for his PhD on the differentiation of Leukaemia at the Beatson Institute for Cancer Research in association with Glasgow University. This research was funded by a competitively awarded Commonwealth Scholarship. Upon returning, Dr Schembri-Wismayer worked at a number of positions including A&E and the National Blood Transfusion service before moving on to secondment in the molecular pathology lab. After this, took up a post as a senior lecturer in the Anatomy department. His ongoing research in the department (which he headed form 2008 to 2014) focuses on cancer differentiation therapy, tumour immunotherapy, stem cell research and biomechanics.
