Omega-3 deficiency linked to common age-related illnesses such as cancer, depression and heart disease

Omega-3 fatty acids are a family of healthy polyunsaturated fats with numerous health benefits. These fats are important for the maintenance of healthy cell membranes and contribute to the production of hormones that regulate blood clotting, inflammation and the contraction and relaxation of artery walls. Two of the most important types of omega-3 fatty acids are eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA). Studies show … Continue reading Omega-3 deficiency linked to common age-related illnesses such as cancer, depression and heart disease

COVID-19 vaccine may cause false breast cancer diagnosis, warn experts

The new coronavirus vaccines have a number of side effects that are expected to occur following the shots. One of those side effects is swollen lymph nodes. These swollen lymph nodes have become a cause of concern among radiologists. Emily Sonnenblick, a breast imaging radiologist at the Dubin Breast Center at Mount Sinai Hospital in New York City, said they have … Continue reading COVID-19 vaccine may cause false breast cancer diagnosis, warn experts

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 breast … Continue reading Exploring the anti-cancer potential of T33, a newly-developed TCM

Cancer Genes May Have Been Epigenetically Silenced Over Time

The factors contributing to the development of cancer in an individual are often complex and varied. Sometimes they are more straightforward, like when someone carries a specific gene known to indicate cancer risk; for example, specific mutations of BRCA1 or BRCA2 are linked to breast cancer. But usually, these risk factors are not so directly observable, making cancer … Continue reading Cancer Genes May Have Been Epigenetically Silenced Over Time

In recent years, however, an increasing number of people have been turning to alternative ways to beat this deadly disease. One of the most popular – and effective – of these natural treatments is the once … Continue reading Celebrities are beating cancer and avoiding opioids for pain relief by turning to cannabis instead

Epigenetic Signature Found in Blood Predicts Chances of Getting Breast Cancer

If a woman could get a blood test telling her whether or not she’s likely to develop breast cancer, preventative measures could be taken, doctors could monitor her health, and she could explore potential options even before the cancer has started. A blood test like this could be possible as a result of new research … Continue reading Epigenetic Signature Found in Blood Predicts Chances of Getting Breast Cancer

Epigenetic Marks on DNA May Indicate Breast Cancer Risks

It’s hard not to know someone who has been affected by breast cancer. Nearly one in eight women will battle this disease in her lifetime and for those women affected it becomes the battle for their life. Early detection and medical advances stem the tide of this disease, but each study brings us a little … Continue reading Epigenetic Marks on DNA May Indicate Breast Cancer Risks

How depression and breast cancer are linked

Scientists have discovered that depression and breast cancer may be intricately linked. A 2017 study published in the prestigious British Medical Journal found that those who exhibit “psychological distress” are 32 percent more likely to die from cancer in general. Antidepressants may lead to breast cancer   The first connection has to do with pharmaceutical antidepressants. “Estrogen receptor (ER)-positive” breast … Continue reading How depression and breast cancer are linked

Prevent and fight cancer with allium and cruciferous vegetables

Whenever studies report about anti-cancer foods, fruits and mainly vegetables top their lists. These fibrous, plant-based foods are rich in chemical compounds that can prevent, halt the progression of, and even fight several diseases. After years of investigating, researchers have finally identified these valuable sources of cancer-fighting chemicals as cruciferous and allium vegetables. What’s even better is that both types of vegetables can … Continue reading Prevent and fight cancer with allium and cruciferous vegetables
