I'm not sure how useful it would be to attempt to cultivate it for personal use unless you have the capability of isolating molecule EBC-46 and the means of injecting it directly into a tumor. All the official media is below:
I'm putting my money (and my Foundation's resources) into T-cell Immunotherapy. Early clinical trial data suggests 93% success rates with relapsed and/or very high risk leukemia - children with relapsed leukemia typically experience a 20% success rate, so this is very exciting. Plus, the side effects of immunotherapy are similar to a bad cold vs the two year devastating effects of chemotherapy.
Weightloss continues to go well - I'm averaging 4-5 kg a week on the Very Low Calorie Diet (averaging 500-600 calories a day). After the second day I was firmly in ketosis and all hunger goes away. Most of my calories are salad, extra virgin olive oil, hard boiled eggs and skim milk, so my doctor is quite happy.
Keep up the good work Joey!
Ziggy's Mum has been getting a bit scared about North Korea and I was pleasantly surprised to find that she had bought a couple weeks of food for the stockpiles earlier this week. I took this as her being on board and added a couple additional weeks the next day along with more toiletries.

I used to run a wood stove 5-6 months out of the year in New Hampshire.
The concern with burning green wood is the build-up of creosote within the chimney, which can lead to chimney fires. Thus, it is better to burn dry (seasoned) wood vs green.
That said, what a lot of people do in the Northeast US is start their fires and get them piping hot using dry kindling and seasoned wood and then add green wood after a couple hours. Once the temperature is high enough you don't have to worry about the build-up.
We used to have our chimney cleaned every year - good safety habit - and despite burning a cord of seasoned and a cord of green wood each year we never had any measurable build-up. Even if you don't have any seasoned you won't be in any trouble for many months.
Ordered a SOG Spirit today (60% off at $20). Screws onto most broom/mop handles to become a spear. Below is the link, but I actually purchased through Amazon and got free shipping (will pick up when I'm in the US in July).
I just re-read the Jakarta Pandemic over the weekend and am re-reading the Perseid Collapse series now. There are so many books in the Perseid Collapse series now through Kindle Worlds, including one by Angery American, which I enjoyed.
I think someone dropping a nuk could be very possible and i dont think that should be classed as 'paranoia' , after all, take a look at what is happening right now for instance. Trump isnt backing down and NK is flexing muscle, are either of them bluffing? i dont think so.
My concern here is that someone else like China or Russia might intervene against the US, and this means the US have to ensure they have all their ally's seriously on board and China and Russia knowing it to hold them back from a possible attack, otherwise its WW3.
I do not have any doubt either that if NK do indeed have Nuk capability they will use it. The other thing that comes to mind is if Russia and China etc do not weight in openly, i wonder whether the might secretly funnel a nuk to NK to attack the US? Dunno.
China owns over a trillion dollars of US debt and there is a massive trade deficit with the US (the US imports $463 Billion from China and only exports $116 Billion).
From an economical standpoint, China's interests and the US's interests are similarly aligned. I think it is much more likely that China will be an ally if something were to start with North Korea or Russia. That said, where the US and China relationship gets shaky is where Japan is involved - you've seen this already in the Sea of Japan and the East China Sea.
Jaffa North Korea so far has only managed to get a missiles to travel 350km, so I think we are reasonably safe. Our northern areas are at slightly more risk than down south. But that said we do make a safe target in that Kim does not have to worry about Australia retaliating with an atomic bomb, unless we borrow one from somewhere. There are getting to be quite a few false news reports being posted else where. Certainly we need to keep our eyes on the developments.
Australia might not have a nuclear arsenal, but the US keeps a nuclear arsenal in Australia. Many of the bases are co-located, so I'm betting that the US would view an attack on Australia very similar to an attack to the US directly.
Most reports suggest that North Korea have at least 4 missiles capable of 1,000-3,500 km range.
