Siri, Do I Have Cancer? NASA Builds Cancer Detecting Mobile Phone Sensor. Nanosensor technology could allow for Siri to one day answer this question because NASA has built a cancer detecting mobile phone sensor at the Ames Research facility in California.

Siri, Do I Have Cancer? NASA Builds Cancer Detecting Mobile Phone Sensor

Ames scientific researcher Jing Li is working on a small chip the size of a nickel that includes 32 of the amazing nanosensors. They are all made of different kinds of materials, and that lets them interact with different chemicals in unique ways. It can tell the difference between those chemicals and even measure and track their proportions compared to the surrounding air. The prototype is near completion, but scientists won't say the type of smartphone the sensor can connect with. Woops! Study Accidentally Finds Chemotherapy Makes Cancer Far Worse. A team of researchers looking into why cancer cells are so resilient accidentally stumbled upon a far more important discovery. While conducting their research, the team discovered that chemotherapy actually heavily damages healthy cells and subsequently triggers them to release a protein that sustains and fuels tumor growth .

Beyond that, it even makes the tumor highly resistant to future treatment . Reporting their findings in the journal Nature Medicine , the scientists report that the findings were ‘completely unexpected’. Finding evidence of significant DNA damage when examining the effects of chemotherapy on tissue derived from men with prostate cancer, the writings are a big slap in the face to mainstream medical organizations who have been pushing chemotherapy as the only option to cancer patients for years.

Cancer Is a Whole Body Disease. The UCSD Center for Integrative Medicine Treats and Prevents Cancer By Helping Your Body to Heal Itself You may think of cancer as a discrete mass of cells with a life of its own.

Cancer Is a Whole Body Disease

Every kind of cancer is labeled with the part of the body it first targeted. Yet your whole body is key to preventing and healing cancer, regardless of the type. To a great extent, all cancers begin in your mind, when you tell yourself to eat risky foods and spend the evening stressing out while sitting on the sofa. With the right knowledge and motivation, you can just as easily make healing lifestyle choices.

Coke Cans May Require Cancer Warning Label if Ingredients Not Changed

Huff - naturalnews.com Back in January, the state of California added to its list of cancer-causing chemicals an ingredient commonly used in flavored soda beverages, which has sent major shockwaves throughout the processed food industry. And according to numerous reports, Coca-Cola, PepsiCo, and even Whole Foods are having to alter their soda beverage recipes in order to avoid being required by the state of California to label their products as causing cancer. The cancer-causing chemical in question is 4-methylimidazole, or 4-MI, a byproduct formed during the production of caramel color, an additive commonly used in processed cola beverages.

CSPI last year petitioned the U.S.Food and Drug Administration(FDA) to remove its “Generally Recognized as Safe” (GRAS) status from caramel colors produced in this way, but the FDA refused, insisting that caramel color with 4-MI is safe. The CSPI report names Coca-Cola, PepsiCo, Dr. Sources for this article include: Turmeric Slows Spread of Breast Cancer - Beating Cancer with Nutrition.

The largest study to date on poultry workers found a significantly increased risk of dying from penile cancer, thought to be due to exposure to oncogenic (cancer-causing) chicken viruses, which raise consumer concerns as well.

Women with breast cancer often enjoy several years in remission, only to then be given the devastating news that they have developed brain tumours.

Now we are finally starting to understand how breast cancer cells are able to spread undetected in the brain: they masquerade as neurons and hijack their energy supply. Killing cancer with fever: An old therapy revisited - opinion - 08 January 2014. AFTER he lost his first patient to cancer in 1891, William Coley was desperate to find an alternative treatment to offer next time, not just surgery and morphine. That desire must have led the US surgeon to the first published account of "fever therapy" – treating cancer with pathogenic bacteria. It was an 1868 paper by the German physician Wilhelm Busch, describing how he had deliberately infected a neck sarcoma patient with dangerous bacteria. The infection almost killed her, but her huge tumour softened and shrank. Veggies vs. Cancer. Just the Flax, Ma’am.

A new study by Harvard School of Public Health (HSPH) researchers has found that red meat consumption is associated with an increased risk of total, cardiovascular, and cancer mortality.

The results also showed that substituting other healthy protein sources, such as fish, poultry, nuts, and legumes, was associated with a lower risk of mortality. “Our study adds more evidence to the health risks of eating high amounts of red meat, which has been associated with type 2 diabetes, coronary heart disease, stroke, and certain cancers in other studies,” said lead author An Pan, research fellow in the Department of Nutrition at HSPH.

Why Not Eat Meat - The Evidence Is Mounting. None of Us Should Eat Extra Estrogen. Los Angeles Times, March 24, 1997 Instead of forcing Europe to open its markets to U.S. beef, why not just quit implanting hormones in American cattle?

When U.S. and Canadian beef cattle go to feedlots, hormone pellets are implanted under the ear skin, a process that is repeated at the midpoint of their 100-day fattening period. The hormones increase the weight of the cattle, adding to profits by about $80 per animal. The most common hormone in current use is estradiol, a potent cancer-causing and gene-damaging estrogen. The FDA maintains that residues of estradiol and other hormones in meat are within "normal" levels, and has waived any requirements for monitoring and chemical testing. Europe, however, has rightly eyed U.S. claims with great skepticism and since 1989 the European Union has forbidden the sale of beef from hormone-treated cattle.

Canadian researchers find a simple cure for cancer, but major pharmaceutical companies are not interested. Researchers at the University of Alberta, in Edmonton, Canada have cured cancer last week, yet there is a little ripple in the news or in TV. It is a simple technique using very basic drug. The method employs dichloroacetate, which is currently used to treat metabolic disorders. So, there is no concern of side effects or about their long term effects. This drug doesn't require a patent, so anyone can employ it widely and cheaply compared to the costly cancer drugs produced by major pharmaceutical companies. Canadian scientists tested this dichloroacetate (DCA) on human's cells; it killed lung, breast and brain cancer cells and left the healthy cells alone. Cancer is cured safely, in spite of widespread suppression by the "cancer industry"
