Flowers Are the Environment

As Olympians were awarded their medals on the prestigious Olympic podium, many people noticed that they were not receiving flowers as usual but a small statue instead. A Rio 2016 spokesperson stated that the change was a part of the committee’s bigger mission to limit the environmental damage from the 2016 games, claiming that flowers are not environmentally responsible.

Filler Flower Cure For Cancer?

Who knew this extremely common, floral favorite would be the next big breakthrough in medical science?

Extracts of Gypsophila paniculata, or Baby’s Breath contain saponins, and could have the ability to boost the efficiency of anti-cancer drugs by a million times!

This makes it easier for the immunotoxins (antibody-based drugs) to attack the cancerous cells. As a result, the immunotherapy used to treat certain types of leukaemia and lymphoma is increased in potency by ‘over one million-fold’.

I am usually careful about the words I use with things like this but this discovery could truly revolutionise the way these antibody-based drugs work and it will save lives.

“And this doesn’t just apply to leukaemia, there is a really big possibility this can be used for many cancers too.” -Dr David Flavell

The breakthrough was discovered by the charitable organization Leukaemia Busters. The team plans to start clinical trials in the near future and hope in 3 to 5 years to have a usable treatment for Leukemia patients.

So next time you’re stuffing that Baby’s Breath into a bouquet you may think twice about it’s importance. It could be that Baby’s Breath has been the cure for cancer all along!

A Christmas Blessing: Bowie Florist Is Back

The Christmas season is a time to reflect on life’s blessings and Bowie Florist has one special blessing to be thankful for – they are open for business.  After a long nine months of rebuilding due to a devastating fire, this Bowie Maryland florist is making up for lost time. The flower shop is buzzing with an assortment of Christmas items. Joy and her staff are busy creating and delivering Hanukkah and Christmas arrangements.  The phone is ringing off the hook as customers call to place their holiday orders.

“It feels good to be able to create holiday arrangements for our customers. Without their loyalty, I don’t know what we would have done.  Their support has been phenomenal,”  said Joy Wist-Thorpe, owner of Bowie Florist.

Now that the shop is back into the full swing of things, Joy and her staff are thankful for a wonderful Christmas season and are happily preparing for 2010.
