Being deficient in magnesium increases your risk of pancreatic cancer by 76%

Pancreatic cancer: It’s a silent killer that now claims the lives of as many as 55,000 people every single year. But a new study suggests that magnesium, a simple, inexpensive trace mineral, may be powerfully effective in helping to stamp it out without the need for chemotherapy or radiation. The latest World Health Organization (WHO) statistics reveal … Continue reading Being deficient in magnesium increases your risk of pancreatic cancer by 76%

Resveratrol Found to Halt Growth of Pancreatic Cancer Cells

Recent research suggests that the antioxidant resveratrol, which naturally occurs in grape skins, can weaken pancreatic cancer cells and increase their vulnerability to chemotherapy. “Resveratrol seems to have a therapeutic gain by making tumor cells more sensitive to radiation and making normal tissue less sensitive,” said lead researcher Paul Okunieff, chief of radiation oncology at … Continue reading Resveratrol Found to Halt Growth of Pancreatic Cancer Cells

Soda consumption linked to pancreatic cancer

Drinking more than one sweetened soft drink per week may significantly increase your risk of pancreatic cancer, according to a study conducted by researchers from the University of Minnesota and published in the journal Cancer Epidemiology, Biomarkers & Prevention. “The high levels of sugar in soft drinks may be increasing the level of insulin in the … Continue reading Soda consumption linked to pancreatic cancer

Cancer study: Ginger compound is superior to conventional chemotherapy treatments

Ginger is a more potent cancer medicine than chemotherapeutic drugs like Taxol, according to a recent study. Published in the journal PLOS One, it revealed that 6-shogaol, one of the pungent compounds present in ginger, can kill breast cancer stem cells at doses that are non-toxic to healthy cells. Researchers from the Rajiv Gandhi Centre for Biotechnology in India noted that 6-shogaol can induce autophagy, … Continue reading Cancer study: Ginger compound is superior to conventional chemotherapy treatments

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

Magnesium Deficiency as a Cause and Essential Treatment for Cancer

In this chapter we are going to part the red sea of cancer with magnesium. A complex relationship links magnesium and cancer. Magnesium is a serious cancer medicine because it stabilizces ATP[1] and allows for DNA and RNA transcriptions and repairs.[2] Magnesium deficiency has been shown to be carcinogenic, and in the case of solid tumors, a … Continue reading Magnesium Deficiency as a Cause and Essential Treatment for Cancer

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
