Exploring the anti-cancer potential of T33, a newly-developed TCM

In this study, Taiwanese researchers investigated the effects of a new Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) formula, T33, on breast cancer cells in vitro and in vivo. Their findings were published in the journal BMC Complementary and Alternative Medicine. Breast cancer is the leading cause of cancer-related deaths in women worldwide. Although TCM is commonly used by … Continue reading Exploring the anti-cancer potential of T33, a newly-developed TCM

Chromatin Immunoprecipitation Study Supports HDAC Inhibitor as Possible Lung Cancer Treatment

A person’s genetic code can contribute to their risk for developing non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC), which accounts for about 85% of lung cancers. Epigenetics, the study of chemical tags that impact gene expression without altering the genetic sequence, is shown to also profoundly influence the development of cancer. In a study by Asan Medical Center researchers … Continue reading Chromatin Immunoprecipitation Study Supports HDAC Inhibitor as Possible Lung Cancer Treatment

Chemical reaction between pipe alloy and water disinfectants produce cancer-causing chromium in drinking water

Researchers from the University of California, Riverside have found that pipe alloy can react with residual water disinfectants to produce cancer-causing chromium that gets mixed in drinking water. In a study published in the journal Environmental Science & Technology, the researchers said that chemical reactions can change chromium in water pipes into a form that creates genetic mutations in cells. Pipe alloy plus disinfectants … Continue reading Chemical reaction between pipe alloy and water disinfectants produce cancer-causing chromium in drinking water

HDAC Inhibitor Could Sharpen Memory and Treat Cancer

New research has found that a histone deacetylase (HDAC) inhibitor drug used to treat cancer could also help sharpen memory and improve one’s ability to learn a new language. It could even help rewire the brain and sustain neurons which could be of benefit to those suffering from Alzheimer’s and dementia. Researchers from Rutgers published a study … Continue reading HDAC Inhibitor Could Sharpen Memory and Treat Cancer

Warning: Chemo may be linked to cancer relapses in patients with leukemia

It’s incredibly devastating to experience a relapse after cancer goes into remission, but for patients with acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL), the possibility is all too real. In fact, as many as 1 in 5 kids who undergo chemotherapy for the disease will relapse, even if they were in complete remission, and now it appears that the … Continue reading Warning: Chemo may be linked to cancer relapses in patients with leukemia

Dairy products can increase the risk of cancer, but these plant-based diets can REDUCE it

A study published in the Journal of the American Osteopathic Association shows that dairy products may increase the risk of prostate cancer but plant-based diets may decrease that risk. Mayo Clinic researchers based their findings on previous studies that examined the link between certain diets and prostate cancer risk. “Our review highlighted a cause for concern with high consumption … Continue reading Dairy products can increase the risk of cancer, but these plant-based diets can REDUCE it

Targeting Epigenetics and Metabolism to Prevent Cancer Growth

New research has helped to clear up the function of a well-known tumor suppressor gene, RB, which prevents aberrant cell growth. Researchers from the University of Illinois at Chicago and Universitat Pompeu Fabra in Barcelona have found that pRb, or retinoblastoma protein, is a tumor suppressing protein encoded by RB that maintains proper functioning of … Continue reading Targeting Epigenetics and Metabolism to Prevent Cancer Growth

Study finds cannabis flavonoids help fight pancreatic cancer

Pancreatic cancer has long been one of the most challenging types of cancer to treat, and its low survival rate makes it one of the deadliest types of the disease. With a five-year survival rate of only 9 percent, it is on track to become the second-leading cause of cancer death among Americans. However, a … Continue reading Study finds cannabis flavonoids help fight pancreatic cancer

Stopping 5G rollout will protect the public from harmful radiation that can cause CANCER and DNA DAMAGE

Earlier this month, much of the focus during the unveiling of Apple’s new iPhone 12 was on its 5G capability. Promising dizzying speeds and higher-quality streaming, they assured the public that 5G is the way of the future. Wireless carriers wasted no time getting in on the act, offering incredible promotions on the handsets in … Continue reading Stopping 5G rollout will protect the public from harmful radiation that can cause CANCER and DNA DAMAGE

Some physicians refuse to promote healthy lifestyle changes in order to avoid stressing cancer survivors, reveals shocking study

A recent study published in the journal Cancer found that some physicians fail to encourage cancer survivors to adopt a healthy lifestyle. Researchers from Northwestern University, Howard University and the University of Miami say that cancer specialists are afraid of overwhelming and distressing cancer survivors even though they know that their patients need to make healthy lifestyle changes even after they’ve beaten cancer. Cancer specialists not promoting healthy lifestyle Cancer … Continue reading Some physicians refuse to promote healthy lifestyle changes in order to avoid stressing cancer survivors, reveals shocking study
