Research into how to avoid cancer

Thursday, February 4th, 2010

The research into cancer is huge and the commercial cancer business is big. Cancer survival rates are improving in most places. Still cancer numbers are growing: In a short time it will be the biggest disease of all. Therefore it will also be one of the biggest businesses – research and commercial sales – of all.

The explanations forwarded as to the causes are related to lifestyle, exercise, diet, a number of risk factors like smoking, living in a city, using a mobile phone, etc. You can maybe reduce your chances of getting cancer by adding vitamins, oils, delay your sexual debut some years, have a slim body etc. 60% of all cancers are found in people over 65 years of age. Research into the DNA of cancers is in the works: we want to map the DNA of all cancers. We vaccinate against cervical cancers (viral).

The business of curing cancer also seems to be locked up by the approved methods, and extreme costs by introducing alternatives for approval. There is an alternative industry claiming to heal people, but that is barely visible in the mainstream media, and documentation is slight.

It is all rather confusing and it seems nobody – in the whole world – knows what is going on.

This is rather amazing: Why is there so little interest – in the whole world – in finding out what cancer really is and what starts it? Is it caused by carcinogens and risk factors gradually or suddenly breaking down your DNA? Is it an infection? Is it caused by fungi? Is it viral? Are cancers many different diseases?

Surely this can be found out – if we want to. Or have we introduced “brakes” that will not let us? Truly independent scientists can find the answer to this.

It must be possible to tell people in a simple manner how to avoid cancer!

A number of research projects should be formulated to find the answers – and financed too.

Norwegian environmental action – moving forward

Friday, November 6th, 2009

Gassnova SF is the Norwegian State run organization to deal with handling of CO2. It will stimulate research, development, pilots and help fund projects possibly leading to full-scale installations. International cooperation is important, and Gassnova will act as an adviser to the Government. Norway aims to be one of the leading nations in the CCS field.
Norway started large scale CCS in the North Sea in 1996 in connection with oil production, and the interest in further development for this area and other subsea storage areas is growing.

Practical work:
Klimakur 2020 is a project to assess what we must do to reach our goals by 2020. The project will propose a set of activities to reach the goal of climate gas reductions of 15-17 million tons in the period starting 2010. The activities will be coordinated with and considered in relation to related international activities.

Centres for Environment-Friendly Energy Research (FME) has been established as a result of the Energi21 paper with recommendations for Norwegian activity related to renewable energy production.

The objective of the scheme of Centres for Environment-friendly Energy Research (FME) is to establish time-limited research centres which conduct concentrated, focused and long-term research of high international calibre in order to solve specific challenges in the field.

The eight Centres for Environment-friendly Energy Research are:
BIGCCS Centre – International CCS Research Centre
Centre for Environmental Design of Renewable Energy (CEDREN)
Bioenergy Innovation Centre (CenBio)
Norwegian Centre for Offshore Wind Energy (NORCOWE)
Norwegian Research Centre for Offshore Wind Technology (NOWITECH)
The Norwegian Research Centre for Solar Cell Technology
SUbsurface CO2 storage – Critical Elements and Superior Strategy (SUCCESS)
The Research Centre on Zero Emission Buildings – ZEB

This is good progress!
