Medical isotope producer Shine Medical raises $27.2m

Shine Medical Technologies said last week in an SEC filing that it raised $27.2 million in a round of debt financing. Over 200 investors have contributed to the $29 million offering, which made its 1st sale on October 11, 2013. Monona, Wis.-based Shine Medical makes radioactive isotopes for medical diagnostic purposes such as detecting and treating cancer, according to the company’s website. Its primary product is molybdenum-99, a parent isotope to the light-emitting element, technetium-99m, which is given to nearly 50,000 Americans every day to diagnose cancer and heart disease. Technetium-99m is used in over 80% of nuclear diagnostic procedures around the world, Shine wrote. The company also produces iodine-131 to treat thyroid cancer and other abnormal thyroid conditions, and to diagnose liver function, renal blood flow and urinary tract obstruction. Shine Medical has not released a statement with information on how it plans to spend the newly-raised funds. In January last year, the company raised $11.5 million in a round of debt financing. A month later, it won clearance from the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission to construct a 57,000 square foot medical isotope manufacturing facility in Janesville, Wisc. The company said it’s the only U.S. medical isotope producer to have reached this permission stage with the NRC since 1960. The approval follows 4 years of data collection and safety analysis between Shine and the...

  Answer: No—unless you do it for more than a few months. After a few months, the upfront metabolic and weight benefits will begin to reverse and new health problems arise. We know this with confidence. I raise this question once again because more and more people are coming to me reporting problems. It may take months, even years, but the long-term consequences can be quite serious. Achieving ketosis by engaging in a very low-carbohydrate, high-fat lifestyle is—without a doubt—an effective means of losing weight, breaking insulin and leptin resistance, reversing type 2 diabetes and fatty liver, redu...

No, no political commentary here, just insights into health regardless of whether you are conservative or liberal or somewhere in-between. But we are indeed doing it on the Wheat Belly and Undoctored lifestyles: Making America Thin Again—MATA—and getting people to lose weight, often considerable amounts of 30, 50, 70, 130 pounds, by essentially REJECTING conventional dietary advice. What conventional pieces of dietary advice are we rejecting in order to achieve this? Here are a few: Limit fat and calories—No way. This is a path to misery. It works in the short-term, fails in the long-run and, of course, ...

Cancer is the second-leading cause of death among Americans, behind only heart disease. But there’s good news: the cancer death rate has drastically declined over the past 25 years, according to a new report from the American Cancer Society (ACS). Overall, the cancer death rate dropped by 27% between 1991 and 2016, according to the report’s data, which came from the National Center for Health Statistics. Steadily declining cancer mortality rates saved about 2.6 million lives between 1991 and 2016. Significant reductions in lung cancer mortality explain a large part of the overall trend. Smoking rates have falle...

National Council on Radiation Protection and Measurements Commentary 27 examines recent epidemiologic data primarily from low-dose or low dose-rate studies of low linear-energy-transfer radiation and cancer to assess whether they support the linear no-threshold model as used in radiation protection. The commentary provides a critical review of low-dose or low dose-rate studies, most published within the last 10 y, that are applicable to current occupational, environmental, and medical radiation exposures. The strengths and weaknesses of the epidemiologic methods, dosimetry assessments, and statistical modeling of 29 epidem...

It’s no exaggeration to say that lives are transformed by the Wheat Belly lifestyle. Look what happened to Susanne after her health was ruined by being gluten-free, reversed by following the Wheat Belly 10-Day Grain Detox. Food manufacturers, out of ignorance or ruthless profiteering, have chosen to replace wheat and gluten with cornstarch, rice flour, tapioca starch, or potato starch—among the few foods that provoke high blood sugar and insulin more than even our favorite grain to bash, wheat. It means that people who are gluten-free and consume such garbage replacement products gain weight in visceral inflamm...

Flight attendants are exposed to a number of known cancer-causing risks, but few studies have rigorously quantified that risk, and researchers say they are an understudied occupational group. The Harvard Flight Attendant Health Study (FAHS), begun in 2007, addresses some of the gaps in understanding health risks among flight attendants. In the latest report, published in the journal Environmental Health, researchers found that flight attendants had higher rates of many cancers, including breast cancer and melanoma, compared to the general population. The FAHS included more than 5,300 flight attendants who were recruited th...
