Dr Tanios Bekai Saab was recently interviewed on TV (Fox News) about using common cold virus to treat pancreatic cancer, one of the most difficult cancer to cure (only 3% survival rate) without serious side effect. There was considerable reduction of tumor size, and increased survival.  Pancreatic cancer affects 44,000 people yearly.

Death from Ebola virus which is raging in West Africa topped the 3,000 mark (3080) coming from Guinea, Libera. Sierra Leone in  West Africa.  More than 6,000 have been infected.  As many as 1.4 million may be infected.

This seems to be double (exponential than the number of cases reported last month.

The epidemic is showing signs of gaining speed—6,574 cases had been reported officially as of Sept. 23, with 3,091 deaths. Those fatalities are more than double the number of both a month ago. The actual number of cases is believed to be three or four times as high. Had no international aid come, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said, the number of cases in Liberia and Sierra Leone might have soared to 1.4 million by mid-January.

But the mananambal said he could make the dead rise, but would not talk, and that the dead who rose from the dead would also die.
