Studies Show Cellphone Use Linked to Brain Cancer & Death in Children

Source: Studies Show Cellphone Use Linked to Brain Cancer & Death in Children by Dr. Edward Group  Kids love being connected to their friends, making it no surprise that recent statistics show that over 30% of all children under 13 years of age in the U.S. own their own cellular phone. Similarly, almost 50% of all teens … Continue reading Studies Show Cellphone Use Linked to Brain Cancer & Death in Children

Using Vitamin C for Heart Disease, Cancer and Cell Protection

Researchers at the University of California say that participants who took about 500 milligrams of vitamin C supplements per day saw a 24 per cent drop in plasma C-reactive protein (CRP) levels after two months. Recent research suggests that CRP may be a better predictor of heart disease than cholesterol levels. “C-reactive protein is a marker of … Continue reading Using Vitamin C for Heart Disease, Cancer and Cell Protection

Nutritional Causes of Cancer

It is still hard for many of us to believe disease and nutrition are intimately linked. One main reason is that our food supply has become contaminated with antibiotics, pesticides, herbicides, fungicides, many environmental poisons and heavy metals including neuro-toxic mercury. Foods like milk today carry radioactive iodine because when Fukushima blew up it cast … Continue reading Nutritional Causes of Cancer

Stem Cells Obtained From Menstrual Blood May Epigenetically Inhibit Liver Cancer

Menstruation is a normal and natural part of human life. In most cases, it signifies a healthy reproductive system and a women’s ability to bear children.  For far too long, however, it has been viewed in a negative light and not always appreciated for its real purpose, which is preparing the female body for pregnancy. … Continue reading Stem Cells Obtained From Menstrual Blood May Epigenetically Inhibit Liver Cancer

Casticin Found Naturally in Fruits May Epigenetically Fight Off Stomach Cancer

Casticin, a type of flavonoid, could adjust chemical tags on DNA to stave off gastric cancer, a recent study suggests. Found in wormwood and various fruits, including chasteberry and oil from the chaste tree, casticin is able to epigenetically impact the expression of a gene that inhibits stomach cancer. Although additional research and clinical studies are needed, … Continue reading Casticin Found Naturally in Fruits May Epigenetically Fight Off Stomach Cancer

The Potential Epigenetic and Anticancer Power of Dietary Flavones

Eating more plant flavones could reduce your cancer risk, suggests a recent study. By inhibiting epigenetic marks that play a central role in the formation of cancer, some foods may be able to help stave off this widespread disease. According to the American Cancer Society, there will be an estimated 1.6 million new cancer cases in … Continue reading The Potential Epigenetic and Anticancer Power of Dietary Flavones

Sugar and Cancer Growth Research

Strategy for Selective Starvation of Cancer Cells According to researchers at the University of California, San Francisco, sugar poses a health risk—contributing to around 35 million deaths globally each year. So high is its toxicity that it should now be considered a potentially toxic substance like alcohol and tobacco. Its link with the onset of diabetes is such … Continue reading Sugar and Cancer Growth Research

Cancer Theories

Two basic theories of cancer have existed up to now:  (1) the viral theory and, (2) the trophoblast theory. There is a recognition that cancer cells share some properties with placental cells found in pregnancy. The classic experiments of Warburg on the respiratory pattern of cancers of various species and tissue origins reveal a high … Continue reading Cancer Theories

Cancer Still a Mystery to Medical Science

Gaia Health Site Quite a few people make quite a lot of money by insisting on complicating the subject of cancer. Medical scientists continue to explore the far reaches of cell physiology in their still deeply frustrated attempt to understand cancer. As they explore further, the picture only becomes more complicated as a recent article … Continue reading Cancer Still a Mystery to Medical Science

Exercise Linked to Epigenetic Benefits that Keep the Brain Healthy

When was the last time you exercised? Was it yesterday, a few weeks ago… or maybe a few months ago? Well, you may want to tack on “epigenetics” to the long list of reasons why you should exercise more often. We all know exercise is beneficial, but the difficulty usually lies in trying to be … Continue reading Exercise Linked to Epigenetic Benefits that Keep the Brain Healthy
