Chemo could spread disease and create more aggressive tumors

Cancer is a disease of uncontrolled growth of abnormal cells, also called a malignant growth or tumor. In 1971,1 President Richard Nixon declared war on cancer, signing the National Cancer Act. His goal was to make a national commitment to finding a cure, after which Fort Detrick was converted to a cancer research center and renamed the Frederick Cancer Research and Development Center. Since then a number of chemotherapeutic and surgical treatments have been developed in an effort to treat cancer. In 1991, mortality rates from cancer began to decline, falling 0.5% per year from 1990 to 1995. In 1998, a major clinical trial reported neoadjuvant chemotherapy in breast cancer allowed women with large tumors to undergo a lumpectomy instead of a full mastectomy. The goal was to shrink the tumor using chemotherapy, so a smaller portion of the breast could be surgically removed.

Chemotherapy has been one of the primary treatments used in cancer. The objective has been to destroy the cancer cells so that it does not come back. However, chemo — technically a poison — travels throughout your entire body and affects every single cell, unlike radiation or surgical treatments which target precise locations.

Fast-food Shrinks Your Brain

Fast-food Shrinks Your Brain

Eating fast food — the epitome of highly processed “fake” foods — can have lasting ramifications on your brain health, so much so that researchers at Australian National University suggested you can cause “irreversible” damage by the time you reach middle age, just by eating a fast-food diet and not staying active. If you are middle-aged and haven’t been eating the best, don’t panic — you can start making healthier changes starting today. However, the new study is eye-opening, once again hitting home the importance of healthy eating when it comes to keeping your mind strong as you age. Fast-food increases risk of Type 2 diabetes, neurodegeneration.

The real reason why sugar weakens your immune system

The real reason why sugar weakens your immune system

The use of refined sugar has skyrocketed in America – and its overconsumption has placed an enormous burden on the immune system.  Yet, the news you’re about to read is never mentioned in the lamestream media.

Historically speaking, in the early 1800s, the average American’s sugar consumption hovered at a modest few pounds over the course of an entire year.  But, now, yearly sugar intake has soared to 155 pounds!  There’s no doubt: this increase is directly connected to horrible health outcomes.

For example, the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) now warns that a shocking two out of three adults in the United States are currently overweight or obese – placing the majority of Americans at increased risk for life-threatening diseases such as type 2 diabetes, heart disease, and fatty liver disease.

How is all of this related to the immune system?  There’s now evidence that the excessive sugar in American diets may jeopardize the body’s supply of essential vitamin C – and “handcuff” our ability to maintain a healthy immune system.

Ginger Found To Benefit People With Liver Disease

Ginger Found To Benefit People With Liver Disease

One of the most common types of liver disease is nonalcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD), and it generally occurs in people who are sedentary, overweight and/or eating too many simple sugars.  Medically speaking, the risk goes up in individuals with type 2 diabetes and other conditions related to metabolic syndromes like high blood pressure and high cholesterol.

Conventionally speaking, there’s no effective therapy for NAFLD – aside from making lifestyle modifications that minimize damage to cells and help control blood sugar levels.  Of course, if you present any of the symptoms (mentioned above) to a conventionally-trained physician, you’ll probably just be sent home with a bag of (toxic) prescription drugs – which only add to your troubles.

However, one study suggests that adding ginger to an anti-inflammatory lifestyle may benefit individuals with liver disease.  Today, we’ll explain why this herb (sometimes referred to as a spice) is so valuable.
