Ellagic acid (EA)—a natural polyphenol compound found in red wine—may inhibit the proliferation of lung cancer cells by inducing autophagy, according to a recent study published in the Journal of Cellular and Molecular Medicine. Further, researchers found that EA also has anti-lung cancer effects both in vitro and in vivo. Continue reading
Are you ready? … and they already have a DRUG that can target it!
Scientists have identified the Achilles’ Heel of cancerous tumors, forcing the disease-spreading cells to over-stress and self-destruct.
Experiments showed blocking a specific protein that fuels tumors kills them off.
The technique worked on a range of human forms of the disease and mice with bowel and blood cancer. Continue reading
Dr. Nicholas James Gonzalez, who practiced in New York City before his untimely death in 2015, used an innovative nutritional protocol to successfully treat far advanced cancer patients. As a classically trained immunologist, he approached this innovative therapy with a great deal of skepticism, but became convinced of its value during an exhaustive five year research project.
In July of 1981, during the summer preceding his third year at Cornell University Medical College, Dr. Gonzalez embarked upon an informal evaluation of a nutritional approach to cancer. A friend had asked him to look into a dentist named Kelley in Texas who had reportedly cured a patient of terminal cancer. What started as a way to spend a summer vacation eventually developed into a five year research project under the direction of former President of Sloan Kettering Institute, Dr. Robert Good.
On his trip to Texas, Gonzalez was astonished to find case after case of appropriately diagnosed advanced metastatic cancer patients who were healthy and active five, ten, and 15 years after diagnosis. Kelley had made available all of his records, well over 10,000 patients, and encouraged Gonzalez to contact any and all of them. Continue reading
While it’s reported that chronic disruptions of circadian rhythms, or internal body clocks, can lead to an increased risk of cancer, the underlying mechanisms by which the disturbances promote tumor growth had been largely unknown until now.
This internal clock, or circadian rhythm, controls when we sleep and wake and plays a role in other biological processes as well, such as temperature regulation and hormone production. Some people have internal body clocks that run longer than 24 hours, or at the very least have slower adapting mechanisms to the traditional daily cycle. Continue reading
In the first prospective study of directly measured body fat distribution and cancer risk, investigators found that higher levels of abdominal and thigh fat are associated with an increased risk of aggressive form of cancer.
It’s not the amount of fat in your body but where it’s stored that may increase your risk for heart attack, stroke and diabetes.
Categorized by a number of physical traits, whether slim, athletic or voluptuous, it’s a good idea to figure out which body type you belong to and learn how to maximize your fitness level and appearance based on your optimal shape. Continue reading
You could wake up every day and be stepping into a total health nightmare while thinking you’re “playing your cards” just fine. We’ve all learned over the past few years that the mainstream media is one huge breadbasket of lies fueled by corporate-driven greed that delivers poison for our minds and our bodies at every turn of the channel, newspaper page or web page. Not only are most Americans “eating” cancer daily, they’re consuming the top 11 causes of cancer – all while they either count calories, “carbs” or how many pounds they weigh – none of which will matter when the oncologist sends them home with no cure in sight.
Then people go “march for the cure” at some Susan Komen Foundation gathering while eating Kentucky Fried Chicken and drinking Mike’s Hard Lemonade, both Komen sponsor foods and beverages that contain carcinogens (deep fried processed oils and alcohol, respectively) that aid cancer cell development. Continue reading
Chemotherapy could allow cancer to spread, and trigger more aggressive tumours, a new study* suggests.
Researchers in the US studied the impact of drugs on patients with breast cancer and found medication increases the chance of cancer cells migrating to other parts of the body, where they are almost always lethal. Continue reading
Drinking coffee might keep us up at night, but new research has given us a reason to sleep easy knowing that the popular drink isn’t as bad for our arteries as some previous studies would suggest. The research from Queen Mary University of London has shown that drinking coffee, including in people who drink up to 25 cups a day, is not associated with having stiffer arteries.
The research, led by Professor Steffen Petersen from Queen Mary’s William Harvey Research Institute, was presented today at the British Cardiovascular Society (BCS) Conference in Manchester and part-funded by the British Heart Foundation (BHF). Continue reading
…and is a Proven Antidepressant Alternative – Without Side Effects
Everyone gets a little stressed once in awhile, but it’s how you cope with that stress that makes a difference in your long-term health. Antidepressants and anti-anxiety medication may work short-term, but they can cause a wide variety of health problems, including jitteriness, decreased sexual desire, nausea, weight gain, and insomnia (1).
Report that alleged Monsanto collaborator at the EPA tried to “kill” is finally published
A draft US federal report has confirmed links between glyphosate, the active ingredient in Roundup weedkiller, and some forms of cancer. The report could have a damaging impact on Bayer/Monsanto’s attempt to defend the large number of legal cases involving its weedkiller. Continue reading
Evidence of the cheap herbicide’s danger to biological functions and the environment continues to mount. Why are U.S. regulators not listening?
Chemicals giant Bayer AG is reeling after a jury awarded $2 billion in damages to people who say they contracted cancer after years of using Roundup, a popular weed killer manufactured by Bayer subsidiary Monsanto Co. Bayer probably won’t pay out the full $2 billion. But more than 10,000 further cases are pending, worrying Bayer investors as well as farmers who rely on the product as a cheap, effective herbicide.
Cancer may only be part of the story. Continue reading
Editor’s NOTE: Correct me if I am wrong, but in reading through this posting, although the writer does alright presenting both sides of the case, to me it appears that she is more supportive of the Bayer-Monsanto position. As for me – I spent 21 months ‘In Country.” I did not love the “smell of Agent Orange in the morning!” ~ Jeffrey Bennett, Editor and Publisher
Gardeners Alva and Alberta Pilliod say they used Monsanto’s Roundup spray to keep weeds off their driveway for more than two decades, applying the herbicide while wearing flip flip flops, shorts, and tank tops.. Now, they both have Non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma (NHL). In a lawsuit, they were awarded $2.05 billion in damages in May.
School groundskeeper Dewayne Johnson, now in his 40s, also used to spray Roundup up to 30 times every summer. He has the same blood cancer as the Pilliods, and won nearly $80 million in a suit last year.
A third man, Edwin Hardeman, used Roundup for more than 25 years to keep weeds off his oak trees. He got NHL, too. A jury in California ruled in March that Roundup was a “substantial factor” in his diagnosis.
More than 13,000 similar lawsuits have popped up in the US. Almost all are being filed by gardeners, groundskeepers, and other professional weed-whackers who allege that their consistent, repeated use of Roundup gave them cancer. Continue reading
Diets high in cheeseburgers and fries and low in whole grains and veggies account for over 80,000 cancer cases a year.
We now know without a shadow of a doubt that eating highly processed foods lacking in nutrition is not just bad for our waistlines, but for our cancer risks. There’s a clear link between excess body weight and at least six kinds of cancer, and probable links to at least seven others. Continue reading
Residents of the town on the banks of the Mississippi River have watched as family members and neighbors have been lost to cancer. Official figures show the risk of cancer from toxic air is 50 times higher in Reserve than the national average. Feeling neglected by politicians, they are fighting back against the chemical plant has been emitting chloroprene into the air for half a century. Continue reading
