Cancer doctors don’t like turmeric cancer treatment…

… because it’s too effective and too cheap.

How to make your own cancer treatment at home using turmeric.
As time progresses and more and more money is spent on the research of a cure for cancer, it seems that we are further than ever from finding one.

We can now treat and cure just about every illness known to man whereas cancer still claims the lives of many every year, why is this? Continue reading

High-Fat Diet May Fuel Spread of Prostate Cancer

Obesity is linked to prostate cancer, scientists know, but it’s not clear why. On Monday, researchers reported a surprising connection.

When prostate cancers lose a particular gene, they become tiny fat factories, a team at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center in Boston reported in a paper published in Nature Genetics.

Then the cancers spread from the prostate, often with deadly effect. Prostate cancers that have not lost that gene also can spread, or metastasize — in mice, at least — but only if they have a ready source of fat from the diet. Continue reading

Chrysanthemum flowers found to have antitumor effects on prostate cancer

Chrysanthemin, which is the 3-glucoside of cyanidin, is a member of the anthocyanin class of natural products. According to an MTT assay (a colorimetric assay for assessing cell metabolic activity), chrysanthemin tends to inhibit the growth of prostate cancer cells, inducing dose-dependent and time-dependent cytotoxic effects in them.

Jeff Sessions Should Ask Cancer Patients about Cannabis

One can only assume that he has never experienced the treatments associated with stage-four cancer.

Attorney General Jeff Sessions is actively lobbying Congress to overturn existing law prohibiting federal interference in state medical-marijuana policy. As someone who believes in strong constitutional limits on federal power and the rights of patients to choose, I am deeply disappointed. And as a cancer survivor who wanted the choice for myself, I wonder: does Sessions have any idea what it’s like?  Continue reading

Gut bacteria may make or break your chances of cancer treatment working

Bacteria in the intestines may prime immune cells to run down tumors.

New, potent cancer therapies can act like daggers pressed into the hindquarters of the immune system, prodding it to lunge at any cancerous cells in the body. When the drugs work, the immune system tramples tumors into oblivion. But they don’t always work—in fact, cancer drugs can fail 60 to 70 percent of the time. The drugs might not give the immune system a sharp enough sticking in every patient. But according to a pair of new studies, it may not be the immune system that needs a swift kick—it may be the gut.

Surviving Cancer 16 years later: Everything new is well forgotten old

Empower yourself, learn to heal today! ~ T. Copenhaver

My husband is a sixteen-year cancer survivor. When he was diagnosed in 2001 there were no books, no seminars and very few options for Acinic cell cancer. The treatment proposed was very disfiguring with probable facial nerve damage; and the only two people the local surgeon had operated on were dead. Choosing a well known teaching hospital instead, we prepared for surgery number 2—to correct the misplaced surgical drain shooting saliva out of the back of his ear; and to remove the other half of the tumor we were told was left behind from surgery number 1.

Folk medicine plants from Mexico and Central America found to have anticancer potential

A study found that the stem and root extracts of native plants from Mexico could be possibly used as a source of anticancer treatment. A team of researchers from the University in Mexico and Technological University of the Mixteca in Mexico investigated the potential anticancer effects of eight folk medicinal plants from Mexico.

Latest Study on Water Fluoridation Again Links It to Lowered Children’s IQ’s

What would you think if I told you that there is poison in the tap water? If you’re like some, you might think that there is no way the government could allow that to happen. However, if you live in the United States it’s likely that you the water from your tap contains a type of neurotoxin called sodium fluoride. For decades, fluoride has been added to public water supplies for what some claim protects the health of our teeth, but is that really what it is doing? Continue reading
