                                                The scourge of every traveller - diarrhoea - may protect against colorectal cancer. The bacterial toxin that causes the illness was also found to slow the growth of dividing colon cancer cells to a crawl, US researchers found.

Researchers now hope this mechanism can be harnessed to fight cancer - without the unpleasant side effects.

We do what we do because of who we are. If we did otherwise, we would not be ourselves.

                                                Yeah, but the only lining I'd be worried about is the lining on the toilet.

                                                how did i know this topic would go to the toilet? smile.gif

                                                

if there was a meteor,
adrift amongst space,
set about on a collision course
not with Earth, but my face...
i wonder if id even know,
at what time i might,
be passed off like an old style
and by the meteor be smite?

- me, 1997
