Red dates help fight cancer

The trendy superfood ‘red dates’ from Asia kill cancer cells in the lab, new research suggests.

Jujube fruits, which are known as red dates due to them looking similar to the Middle-Eastern staple, programme lung, breast and prostate cancer cells to commit suicide, a study published in the journal Food & Function found.

Red dates are thought to trigger cancer cell death by causing 'internal stress' in tumours, according to researchers from the Royal Society of Chemistry.

The results occurred after cancer cells were exposed to jujube in the lab. It is therefore unclear if the fruit helps to prevent or treat the disease in humans.


A £5 bar of SOAP cleared up four-year-old's chronic eczema

A mother has revealed how a £5 bar of soap was able to clear up her daughter's, Grace, chronic eczema in just a week.

She sent the company that manufactures MooGoo products, pictures of Grace's skin at its worst. Her skin was dry, cracked and painful.

A Fresh Buttermilk, Olive oil & Cocoa Butter cleansing bar was recommended. The non-lathering cleansing bar is rich in fatty oils which moisturise the skin and leave it feeling soft and comfortable. The bar is gentle and natural, and non-irritating.

Amazingly, after just one week of using the MooGoo products both day and night, Grace's skin clears up.

A MooGoo's eczema cream sells every two minutes worldwide.


Ben Davis has no intention to fulfil NS duties

The Ministry of Defence (MINDEF) revealed that Harvey Davis, the father of Fulham footballer Benjamin Davis, "would not commit to a date" on when his son intended to return and serve his national service (NS) during the deferment application process.

In a reply to media queries, MINDEF added that Benjamin went on to sign the contract despite the rejection for deferment and noted that the senior Davis has publicly stated that he would encourage his son to renounce his citizenship in order to pursue his career.

"(Benjamin's) actions are meant to further his own professional career, not national interest. As his father openly admitted, he is looking out for his son's future, not Singapore's," said MINDEF.
