Parsley Compound kills 86% of Lung Cancer Cells
by PAUL FASSA Worldwide, lung cancer is a devastating and exceedingly common form of cancer. It ranks as the number one cause of cancer deaths for adults in the United States. According to the American Lung Cancer Association, back in 1987 it replaced breast cancer as the leading cause of cancer deaths in women. “Lung cancer causes more deaths than the next three most common cancers combined (colon, breast and pancreatic). An estimated 159,260 Americans are expected to die from lung cancer in 2014, accounting for approximately 27 percent of all cancer deaths” – American Lung Cancer Association.

This Is The Cannabis Oil Recipe Rick Simpson Used To Heal His Cancer And Recommends To Others - Waking Times Media In 2003, Rick Simpson healed himself of skin cancer using cannabis oil.

The Guerrilla Gardening Home Page Outdoor Concrete Pots - The Wood Grain Cottage Well, we’ve had a few days without the wind. I’m not sure how I’ve survived!

Let’s just pretend I didn’t say anything… I’ve been so anxious to start adding flowers and pots and outdoor pretties, that I couldn’t help myself from making a new pair of outdoor concrete pots. They’re unique and I love the way they look with flowers! Here’s how I made them… I started with basic black plastic pots, you know, the kind that your plants come in when you buy them… Then I started mixing my ingredients… Portland Cement, Perlite and Sphagnum Peat Moss.

Cheap Patio idea - Sunset Mobile An outdoor "area rug" of stained concrete pavers replaced a tired lawn in the back of our 1930s bungalow in Santa Monica. And it solved a major, if temporary, problem. Because the back entrance of our house leads to a home office, lots of foot traffic had trampled the lawn. And our dog, Stella, regularly tracked grass and mud into the house. We needed a level, durable patio that would blend with the surrounding garden. Concrete pavers seemed to be the answer ― they are readily available and inexpensive (less than $1 each) at home improvement stores ― but their color range is limited to gray and ruddy brown. Then my experience as a scenery artist led me to the idea of turning the raw 12-inch-square pavers into a colorful mosaic. After removing the lawn and about 3 inches of soil beneath it (the 2-inch-deep pavers needed to sit flush against an adjacent driveway), we framed the patio with 2-by-4s and put down a 1-inch-thick layer of washed sand.
