Natural Compound in Cypress Trees Might Epigenetically Protect Against Cancer

A chemical in an essential oil extracted from tree bark might actually reduce cancer growth. Researchers are finding that hinokitiol, a compound found in some cypress trees, not only has anti-infective and anti-oxidative properties, but it might also impact the epigenetic tags on top of DNA and reactivate genes that fight against tumor growth. The epigenetic … Continue reading Natural Compound in Cypress Trees Might Epigenetically Protect Against Cancer

Infections as a Cause of Cancer

Cancer, always believed to be caused by genetic cell mutations—can in reality be caused by infections from viruses, bacteria, and fungi. “I believe that, conservatively, 15 to 20% of all cancer is caused by infections; however, the number could be larger—maybe double,” said Dr. Andrew Dannenberg, director of the Cancer Center at New York-Presbyterian Hospital/Weill … Continue reading Infections as a Cause of Cancer

Anti-inflammatory Cancer Treatments

In Latin, the word “inflammation” means “ignite, set alight” and like gasoline, that’s exactly what it does for cancer. A microenvironment of chronic inflammation sets the stage for cancer.  Inflammation increases chemotherapy resistance and turn on oncogenes, genes that can turn cells into tumors. Inflammation promotes the spreading and mutating of cancer cells while continuing … Continue reading Anti-inflammatory Cancer Treatments

Important News about Bicarbonates, Cancer, the Pancreas, Diabetes and Fungal Infections

As the worlds foremost expert on sodium bicarbonate use as a primer medicine I will break the second law of general semantics and yell from the top of the highest mountain through the strongest radio antenna that ALL cancer patients, all diabetics, AIDS and kidney patients, suffers of Alzheimer’s and Parkinson disease, autistic children, those … Continue reading Important News about Bicarbonates, Cancer, the Pancreas, Diabetes and Fungal Infections

‘Magical’ Mushroom Could Fight off Cancer with Epigenetics

A certain type of mushroom might epigenetically prevent tumor growth, according to a study published in the Journal of Cancer Research and Treatment. A medicinal mushroom, Phellinus linteus (PL), could come with “magical” anticancer properties. Researchers from New York Medical College found that histone deacetylase (HDAC) inactivation and histone acetylation led to the death of bladder cancer cells. Chemotherapy and immunotherapy often … Continue reading ‘Magical’ Mushroom Could Fight off Cancer with Epigenetics

Smoking Linked to Epigenetic Warning Signs of Cancer in Cheek Cells

New research published in JAMA Oncology shows that DNA damage that occurs as a result of smoking may be found in cheek swabs. In light of this research, smoking is thought to adjust the epigenetic profile of cheek cells and the resulting epigenetic landscape may even be used as an early warning sign of other cancers typically … Continue reading Smoking Linked to Epigenetic Warning Signs of Cancer in Cheek Cells

The Key Cause of Cancer is Oxygen Deficiency

In Conquering Cancer we are going to read a lot about oxygen as well as about carbon dioxide, which are the ultimate yin yang pair. It is good to know that oxygen is toxic without CO2. Oxygen is also partially controlled by the presence of CO2. Both O2 and CO2 are nutritional gases yet it is CO2 which … Continue reading The Key Cause of Cancer is Oxygen Deficiency

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

Thyroid Cancer & Iodine

Medical ignorance is epidemic and nowhere is this more evident than in how contemporary medicine views and treats thyroid cancer. Overtreatment of thyroid cancer with radioactive iodine is rampant even though there is substantial uncertainty about the indications for radioactive iodine for thyroid cancer. Radioactive iodine absorbed by the thyroid can injure the gland. There was a large increase … Continue reading Thyroid Cancer & Iodine

Skin Cancer – Natural Treatment Options

Skin cancer is the most commonly diagnosed cancer among men and women. Over one million cases are diagnosed each year, with more young people having skin cancer than ever before. When you have any irregularity on the skin pulling attention to it, then you have two immediate choices. One, you can begin to abuse yourself, with … Continue reading Skin Cancer – Natural Treatment Options
