Having high levels of vitamin D could help women to survive breast cancer, new research suggests.
Women with increased amounts of the sunshine vitamin were nearly a third more likely to survive the diagnosis.
Experts believe it works by inhibiting the reproduction of cancerous cells – effectively killing them.
Vitamin D, obtained from sunlight, helps to strengthen bones and a deficiency has been found to be a risk factor in various cancers.
It can also be found in fatty fish oils, fortified milks, cereals and consumed in supplements – but it is believed that one in five adults are deficient in the nutrient.
Hillary Clinton headlined a major fundraiser for a political action committee shortly before the group steered nearly $500,000 to the wife of the FBI official who oversaw the Clinton email investigation, DailyMail.com has learned.
Clinton’s ties to the Common Good VA – a Virginia state PAC run by Clinton’s long-time friend and advisor Terry McAuliffe, its governor – came under scrutiny this week after the Wall Street Journal reported that the group donated heavily to the state senate campaign of Jill McCabe.
Her husband Andrew McCabe led the FBI investigation into Clinton’s emails.
Andrew McCabe, now the deputy director of the FBI, told the Wall Street Journal that he complied with federal ethics rules and was not promoted to lead the Clinton probe until months after his wife’s unsuccessful state senate bid ended.

Residents in Louisiana woke up to find thousands of dead fish washed up on on the banks of False River after a cold front.
Brian Heimann, a biologist with the Louisiana Wildlife and Fisheries, told WAFB that the cold caused the shallower areas of the lake in Pointe Coupee Parish to lose oxygen.
The vast majority of the fish affected were Threadfin Chad, a species that was already overpopulated.

More than 1,000 people filled a Detroit church on Friday to say goodbye to four precious children who were brutally murdered in front of their own mother.
Gregory Green, 49, allegedly killed the children, two of whom were his own and two who were his stepchildren, a month after his wife Faith Green filed for divorce.
Authorities said Green tortured Faith, tying her up, cutting her face and then shooting her in the foot before then shooting dead his two stepchildren.
A week after that horrific night of violence, Chadney Allen, 19, Kara Allen, 17, Koi Green, 5, and four-year-old Kaleigh Green are being laid to rest.
‘Statins, the cholesterol-lowering drug, has once again been given much publicity. Various mainstream media outlets all over the UK have been doing their utmost to tell the public about the claims made from a new study on statins.
Published in the Lancet medical journal, the study claims that the benefits of taking statins; lowered incidences of heart attacks and strokes have been underrated, while the harmful side-effects were not as bad as previously thought.
According to the BBC currently 7 million people are on statins in the UK. Around 2 million of these take the drug because of a history of cardiovascular incidence including heart attacks and strokes. The remaining roughly 5 million take the drug because they are ‘at risk’ for diabetes, blood pressure and age-related factors. These figures proportionally reflect the rest of the Western world.’
| 13 Sept 2016 | The United States announced on Tuesday that an agreement has been reached with Israel on a $38 billion 10-year military aid package for 2019 through 2028. Senior officials from both sides will sign the agreement on Wednesday in a ceremony in the Treaty Room at the State Department in Washington at 9 P.M. (Israel time). “This memorandum of understanding constitutes the single largest pledge of bilateral military assistance in U.S. history,” said the State Department in its announcement of the agreement.
Americans have lost jobs and even been killed by their government because they were unwilling to at least appear to believe Fantastic Tales that couldn’t possibly be true. But we are rapidly approaching a transition period when we will be able to actually Tell the Truth in public.
The following is an example of a Fantastic Tale: On Tuesday June 4, 1968 Robert Kennedy won the California Democratic primary. We are told that Sirhan Sirhan was the lone assassin. Men and women in Polite Society are required to believe that Sirhan’s 8 shot 22 caliber revolver fired 13 times without reloading. Sirhan who was standing in front of RFK was able to fire five “Magic Bullets” that flew upward and over Kennedy’s head, went past him and then down sharply only to reverse course, travel downwards only to reverse course again and strike him from behind at an upward angle. Somehow the powder burns from these “Magic Bullets” followed their rather strange trajectory sufficiently so as to convince the Coroner that they had been fired only inches away from the likely 1968 Democratic Presidential nominee.
Do you remember the subprime mortgage meltdown from the last financial crisis? Well, this time around we are facing a subprime auto loan meltdown. In recent years, auto lenders have become more and more aggressive, and they have been increasingly willing to lend money to people that should not be borrowing money to buy a new vehicle under any circumstances. Just like with subprime mortgages, this strategy seemed to pay off at first, but now economic reality is beginning to be felt in a major way. Delinquency rates are up by double digit percentages, and major auto lenders are bracing for hundreds of millions of dollars of losses. We are a nation that is absolutely drowning in debt, and we are most definitely going to reap what we have sown.
The size of this market is larger than you may imagine. Earlier this year, the auto loan bubble surpassed the one trillion dollar mark for the first time ever…
Americans are borrowing more than ever for new and used vehicles, and 30- and 60-day delinquency rates rose in the second quarter, according to the automotive arm of one of the nation’s largest credit bureaus.
The total balance of all outstanding auto loans reached $1.027 trillion between April 1 and June 30, the second consecutive quarter that it surpassed the $1-trillion mark, reports Experian Automotive.
The long-running tragic saga of ITT Education Services, which was established nearly 50 ago and operates the ITT Technical Institutes for-profit college chain, finally came to a end this morning with both a bang and a whimper, when it announced that it is shutting down effective immediately, leaving the fate of 40,000 students currently enrolled in limbo, and some 8,000 workers without a job.
The company said the closure is due to an investigation and sanctions by the U.S. Department of Education.
“It is with profound regret that we must report that ITT Educational Services, Inc. will discontinue academic operations at all of its ITT Technical Institutes permanently after approximately 50 years of continuous service,” the company stated Tuesday. “Effective today, the company has eliminated the positions of the overwhelming majority of our more than 8,000 employees.”
As previously reported, ITT Tech stopped enrolling new students on August 29, just a few days after it was cut off from a significant amount of federal funding by the government. ITT’s collapse was catalyzed when the Department of Education effectively killed the company two weeks ago, when it told the company on August 25 that it couldn’t enroll new students who use federal financial aid. The school accused federal officials of forcing the closure and denying it due process. The company has been the subject of state and federal probes for various reasons, including its recruitment tactics, lending practices and job placement figures.
Documents from Nancy Pelosi’s computer were leaked by the Romanian hacker “Guccifer 2.0,” including a memo showing that the House Minority Leader knew the Obama Administration and Hillary Clinton lied to the American people about Benghazi and choose to hide those facts.
The memo states all talking points and background information about the Benghazi attacks and included in a bold font that UN Ambassador Susan Rice’s claims about an internet video were “later proved false.”
| 23 Aug 2016 | Customs authorities in Qingdao, East China’s Shandong Province, detained 14 people for smuggling frozen seafood from Japan, including irradiated high-end seafood from waters near Fukushima prefecture, China Central Television (CCTV) reported on Monday. The group has smuggled over 5,000 tons of frozen seafood – including shrimp and king crab – valued at $34.5 million – into China over the past two years, according to an announcement by the Qingdao Customs District (QCD) posted on its official website on Monday. Some of the high-end products were from Fukushima, one of 12 Japanese prefectures from which China has banned any seafood imports due to the contamination of their waters after the Fukushima nuclear accident in 2011, according to CCTV.
