Now They Say Ecstasy Kills Blood Cancers


This is all over the press today.  The drug found in Ecstasy, MDMA, apparently is a wonder drug in fighting blood cancers such as Leukemia. Scientists are researching to develop a more powerful form of the drug that can be used safely by humans.

Earlier this year they came out with research showing that Ecstasy does not cause brain damage. Now they say it might actually be good for you.  In addition, it can be used to fight autism.

There is something Woody Allen about this. It reminds me of his 1973 movie Sleeper, when he wakes up in the future and finds out that everything people said was bad for you, like tobacco, actually turned out to be good in the end,
