  • Ever wonder why beer is so delicious? Here’s the science. My preacher once told me that beer is proof God loves us and wants us to be happy.

This is an interesting development in cancer therapy that apparently holds promise. If you’re interested in more in depth information, here is a link to Nature Nonotechnology
