Combination of an active plant compound and a form of vitamin E shows promise as an anti-cancer treatment

Naturally occurring compounds derived from plants make the best anti-cancer agents. These bioactive chemicals are not only effective at stopping the growth and proliferation of cancer cells, but they also cause very few, if any, side effects. In contrast, synthetic drugs used in chemotherapy cause a variety of unpleasant side effects, such as tiredness, mouth soreness, loss … Continue reading Combination of an active plant compound and a form of vitamin E shows promise as an anti-cancer treatment

Battling skin cancer: Vitamin D may be used to boost anti-tumor activity, study finds

British researchers have found that vitamin D helps fight a serious form of skin cancer known as melanoma. In a study published in the journal Cancer Research, they reported that increasing vitamin D levels can help suppress a signaling pathway linked to the growth and spread of melanoma cells. “[What’s] really intriguing is that we can now see … Continue reading Battling skin cancer: Vitamin D may be used to boost anti-tumor activity, study finds

Study: Battling cancer and preventing cancer recurrence with cruciferous vegetables

Cruciferous vegetables may hold the key to stopping the progression and recurrence of cancer. Researchers at South Dakota State University (SDState) reported that a compound from cruciferous vegetables called phenethyl isothiocyanate (PEITC) can halt tumor formation and metastasis in mice bearing transplanted cancer stem cells (CSCs). PEITC can also stop the proliferation of cultured CSCs, which are heavily implicated in tumor … Continue reading Study: Battling cancer and preventing cancer recurrence with cruciferous vegetables

Investigating how 6-gingerol and gamma-tocotrienol can suppress cancer growth

Malaysian researchers investigated the mechanisms underlying the anti-cancer effects of a combination treatment of y-tocotrienol and 6-gingerol. They reported their findings in an article published in the Journal of Natural Medicines. In their previous study, the researchers reported that y-tocotrienol (yT3) and 6-gingerol (6G) synergistically inhibited the proliferation of human colorectal cancer cells.To elucidate the mechanisms involved in this suppression, … Continue reading Investigating how 6-gingerol and gamma-tocotrienol can suppress cancer growth

Researchers develop incredible new material from silver tungstate that has antifungal and antitumor properties

An international team of researchers has developed a new material from silver tungstate that can eliminate fungi and protect against cancer. In a study published in the journal Science Advances, the researchers exposed silver tungstate to radiation and found that doing so increased the material’s antifungal and anticancer properties. Irradiated silver tungstate is anti-fungal, anti-cancer Silver tungstate is an inorganic compound that … Continue reading Researchers develop incredible new material from silver tungstate that has antifungal and antitumor properties

Vitamin D supplementation can REDUCE cancer death risk by 16%, study shows

Study suggests managing your blood sugar levels with the keto diet brings anti-cancer benefits

The ketogenic (keto) diet might inhibit the growth of tumors in cancer patients, according to a team of American and Korean researchers. Published in the journal Cell Reports, their findings showed that the keto diet, which kept blood glucose from spiking, also kept cancer cells from using glucose as a fuel source, thus stalling tumor growth in mice with lung cancer. … Continue reading Study suggests managing your blood sugar levels with the keto diet brings anti-cancer benefits
