The combination of essential vitamins and minerals contained in multivitamins may mirror healthier dietary patterns such as fruit and vegetable intake resulting in a modest decrease in cancer risk for those who take them.
It is well-known that tanning beds have been linked to melanoma, the deadliest type of skin cancer. But now, a new study finds that indoor tanning can also lead to other types of skin cancers.
A two-year study published in the journal Food and Chemical Toxicology showed that rats eating genetically modified corn and drinking water contaminated with Roundup developed large tumors at an alarming rate. The levels of Roundup are permitted in drinking water and GM crops in the United States.
If you’re worried about breast cancer, a diet including lots of green tea and mushrooms may just be the winning combination to significantly lower your risk.
Lab research has shown anti-tumor characteristics in mushroom extracts, while green tea contains polyphenols—antioxidants that are known to fight breast tumors in animals.
Doctors have long believed that the low doses of chemo can kill cancer cells while allowing healthy cells to rebuild between treatments. Unfortunately, this heavy reliance on chemo has meant that any gains in survival rate among cancer victims have been offset by terrible sickness and a low quality of life during treatment.
If you’ve never eaten collard greens (considered a Southern specialty), then you just might want to try them if you know what’s good for you. They are an all-around nutritional superstar, rich in lutein and zeaxanthin — antioxidants that studies show may reduce the risk of age-related macular degeneration, a common cause of blindness.
People can feel nauseous for a variety of reasons, including motion sickness, pregnancy or certain medical treatments. Luckily, there may be a soothing cure for nausea in your kitchen cabinet.
According to research published in The Journal of Alternative and Complementary Medicine, researchers found that chemotherapy patients who drank shakes containing 32 grams of protein had less frequent and severe nausea than patients who ate normally or had lower-protein shakes.
If we obey our doctor without question, we could have huge additional unnecessary risk.
“Tests” are a very big part of conventional medicine these days, and many of them have risk. Who cares? It’s the profit that’s important, and hospitals demand the income.
There is a cancer clinic in Freeport, Grand Bahama. This clinic can test specifically for cancer with a simple blood test. Treatment is by outpatient, though there is a hospital next door. This does not include the American cancer treatment system of operations, chemotherapy and radiation. The clinic, called the IAT Clinic, uses non-invasive therapy. I have personally talked with patients who had been told their condition was terminal before they went to this clinic, and some of them have survived some 20-plus years. Of course, those who come too late, as people are inclined to do, don’t really get the benefit, and they die.
Researchers in the Linus Pauling Institute at Oregon State University have discovered yet another reason why broccoli and other cruciferous vegetables are so good for you: They contain a compound called sulforaphane that provides not just one, but two ways to prevent cancer through the complex mechanism of epigenetics.
