Mindboggling: UK Doctors Destroy Breast Cancer Tumors in Just 11 Days — WITHOUT Chemotherapy. A team of doctors from Manchester University, Edinburgh University, and The Institute of Cancer Research in London have developed a new two-pronged treatment for a particularly aggressive form of breast cancer that makes tumors disappear in just 11 days.

Mindboggling: UK Doctors Destroy Breast Cancer Tumors in Just 11 Days — WITHOUT Chemotherapy

On top of the medical breakthrough, it spares thousands of women across the world from the bone-chillingly painful chemotherapy. Cancer surgeon Dr. Nigel Bundred, who is professor of surgical oncology at the University of Manchester and the University Hospital of South Manchester NHS Foundation Trust, described the unexpected results from the UK EPHOS-B multi-centre clinical trial as ‘staggering,’ at the 10th European Breast Cancer Conference (EBCC-10) in Amsterdam.

Hyaluronan Regulates Ceruloplasmin Production By Gliomas and Their Treatment-Resistant Multipotent Progenitors. Is Chemotherapy Effective? An important paper has been published in the Australian journal Clinical Oncology.

Is Chemotherapy Effective?

This meta-analysis, entitled "The Contribution of Cytotoxic Chemotherapy to 5-year Survival in Adult Malignancies" set out to accurately quantify and assess the actual benefit conferred by chemotherapy in the treatment of adults with the commonest types of cancer. Although the paper has attracted some attention in Australia, the native country of the paper's authors, it has been greeted with complete silence on this side of the world. Boswellia Seratta: Is It the Best Natural Cancer Fighter? Cancer touches all of us in some form or fashion, whether it’s a family member, friend, co-worker or even ourselves who get diagnosed with some type of cancer.

Boswellia Seratta: Is It the Best Natural Cancer Fighter?

And while there is no cure for cancer, what if I told you there was a substance that potentially could help us fight cancer? Enter boswellia. Because it turns off reactions of the immune system that drive up inflammation and swelling, boswellia is a natural treatment for cancer and capable of fighting pain in addition to inflammation. Boswellia serrata extract is so powerful that today it’s considered comparable to NSAID pain relievers (the leading type of chemical anti-inflammatory medications). Why cancer screening has never been shown to “save lives”—and what we can do about it. Vinay Prasad, assistant professor1, Jeanne Lenzer, journalist2, David H Newman, professor3Author affiliationsCorrespondence to: V Prasad prasad@ohsu.eduAccepted 29 October 2015 The claim that cancer screening saves lives is based on fewer deaths due to the target cancer.

Why cancer screening has never been shown to “save lives”—and what we can do about it

Vinay Prasad and colleagues argue that reductions in overall mortality should be the benchmark and call for higher standards of evidence for cancer screening Despite growing appreciation of the harms of cancer screening,1 2 3 advocates still claim that it “saves lives.”4 This assertion rests, however, on reductions in disease specific mortality rather than overall mortality. In this article we argue that overall mortality should be the benchmark against which screening is judged and discuss how to improve the evidence upon which screening rests.

There are two chief reasons why cancer screening might reduce disease specific mortality without significantly reducing overall mortality. Indole-3-carbinol as a chemopreventive and anti-cancer agent. Ginger destroys cancer more effectively than chemotherapy - study. In a Georga State University study on the effects of ginger extract on living cells, researchers found that ginger extract induced growth-inhibition and death on cancerous cells, while leaving the healthy cells alone.

“Whatever manipulations we’re doing to tumors can inadvertently do something to increase the tumor numbers to become more metastatic, which is what kills patients at the end of the day,” said Dr. Raghu Kalluri, working on an unrelated study at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center in Boston. At George State, the researchers found that ginger extract shrunk prostate tumors in mice by 56%, while reducing inflammation and providing anti-oxidants. This study comes in addition to 17 other studies linking ginger to anti-cancer benefits. The plant has also been subjected to peer-reviewed studies that link it to healing when dealing with over 101 other diseases.

Cure for cancer might accidentally have been found, and it could be malaria. Scientists might have accidentally made a huge step forward in the search for a cure for cancer — discovering unexpectedly that a malaria protein could be an effective weapon against the disease.

Cure for cancer might accidentally have been found, and it could be malaria

Danish researchers were hunting for a way of protecting pregnant women from malaria, which can cause huge problems because it attacks the placenta. But they found at the same time that armed malaria proteins can attack cancer, too — an approach which could be a step towards curing the disease. Scientists have combined the bit of protein that the malaria vaccine uses to bury into cells and combined it with a toxin — that can then bury into cancer cells and release the toxin, killing them off. The scientists have found that in both cases the malria protein attaches itself to the same carbohydrate. It is the similarities between those two things that the cure could exploit. The carbohydrate ensures that the placenta grows quickly.

The GcMAF Book

In the pages that follow you are going to learn about two amazing proteins: GcMAF (glycoprotein macrophage activating factor) and Nagalase (alpha-N-acetylgalactosaminidase). These two natural bioidentical protein molecules (made by our bodies using our own genetic program) have the potential to prevent a lot of human suffering and save millions of lives. Research studies have shown how we can use GcMAF and Nagalase to: identify the presence of—and reverse—metastatic cancercure HIV and other chronic viral infectionsdetect and reverse early cancers long before imaging can identify themdetermine whether a cancer treatment program is working Nagalase screening, coupled with early treatment using GcMAF, has the potential to rid the world of the scourge of cancer.

Many people are going to want to get their hands on some of this stuff. Essential Oils That Stop Cancer In Its Tracks. By JOE BATTAGLIA Even scientists now recognize the power agents that exist within some essential oils which stops cancer spreading, and which induces cancerous cells to close themselves down.

Essential Oils That Stop Cancer In Its Tracks

Their disease-preventing ability is no longer doubted, especially for cancer. A healthy body, from head to foot, typically has a frequency ranging from 62 to 78 MHz, while disease begins at 58Hz. In cancer science, many discoveries don't hold up. Melanoma Tumor 'Dissolves' After 1 Dose of New Drug Combo. A large melanoma tumor on a woman's chest disappeared so quickly that it left a gaping hole in its place after she received a new treatment containing two melanoma drugs, a new case report finds.

Melanoma Tumor 'Dissolves' After 1 Dose of New Drug Combo

Doctors are still monitoring the 49-year-old woman, but she was free of melanoma — a type of skin cancer that can be deadly — at her last checkup, said the report's lead author, Dr. Paul Chapman, an attending physician and head of the melanoma section at the Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center in New York. The woman took the same two drugs as more than 100 people with melanoma who took part in a recent study. Mammography's $4-Billion Problem.

WASHINGTON -- For too many women, breast cancer screening does more harm than good, a researcher said here.

Mammography's $4-Billion Problem

Kenneth Mandl, PhD, a professor at Harvard Medical School and director of the Boston Children's Hospital Informatics Program, and Mei-Sing Ong, PhD, a research fellow at the hospital, examined the costs of false-positive mammograms and breast cancer overdiagnoses in the U.S. Mandl spoke at a Health Affairs panel about the cost and quality of cancer care Tuesday. "There's a $4-billion problem, and it's $4 billion dollars being spent on two undesirable outcomes," he said, referring to false-positive results and overtreatment of breast cancer.

The magnitude of the financial problem will likely grab policymakers' attention first, but what's important is the human cost, he said. "There are many women who are brave enough to face a false-positive thinking they that they are ultimately protecting themselves from cancer, and it's a small price to pay.

Today, odds are that you have had/have cancer, or know somebody who does. In Canada, approximately one million Canadians that were alive at the beginning of 2009 have had a cancer diagnosis in the previous 10 years. Two out of every five Canadians will develop cancer within their life time, and one in every four will die.(3) In the United States, one out of every two men, and one out of ever three women will become infected with cancer.

These rates have continued to skyrocket since we started recording them and more people are starting to ask questions and observe the environment we choose to surround ourselves with on a daily basis. Cancer and non-cancer health effects fr - PubMed Mobile. Dope Hope: Marijuana May Combat Cancer Spread, Study Shows. Cannabis could be used to prevent cancer spreading, according to groundbreaking research conducted by British scientists.

Research carried out by a team from the University of East Anglia showed how the main psychoactive ingredient in cannabis, Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), could be useful for shrinking tumors. The scientists injected THC into laboratory mice bearing human cancer cells, and were able to identify for the first time two receptors in particular that were responsible for the compound’s disease-reducing effects. Publishing the study in the Journal of Biological Chemistry, the scientists expressed their hope that a synthetic substitute for THC could be created and used to fight cancer. Dr. Peter McCormick, from UEA’s school of Pharmacy, said “THC, the major active component of marijuana, has anti-cancer properties.

By DR. MARIANNA POCHELLI Beyond limited empirical observations, not all medicinal plants have established scientific studies to support their effectiveness. However, in the case of Brucea javanica, it is one of those plants in which scientific investigations have provided enough evidence to prove that it has an impressive efficacy for the treatment of cervical, bladder and pancreatic cancers. Its selective toxicity has also been found to kill 70% of breast cancer cells. Oncologists are still at a loss to find methods of selectively killing cancer cells through the standard protocols of treatment in chemotherapy and radiation.

As more knowledge and research is being extended to populations confined to conventional allopathic principles, the broad categories of herbal and plant medicines are finally reaching the mainstream. Brucea javanica (Brucea javanica (L.) B. javanica is a monoecious or dioecious shrub or small tree that can grow up to 10 m tall with soft-haired twigs and leaves.

Image Credit: Flickr / tonrulkens By: Amanda Froelich, True Activist. 150 years ago Cancer was almost non-existent, but with the inclusion of processed foods, low-quality meat and dairy, and refined sugars into the standard diet, disease and sickness sprung up in the body, and quickly became a human epidemic. To this day, most mainstream medical doctors and pharmaceutical companies dispel the notion that diet and lifestyle choices are related to Cancer, and it is for this reason almost 600,000 still die from the largely preventable disease.
