‘Silent killer‘ begins in the fallopian tubes, study reveals – paving the way to better tests
Two recent studies have confirmed previous claims that the deadly disease actually starts in the fallopian tubes.
The discovery simultaneously gives researchers hope for developing better detection and prevention methods and highlights the alarming reality that very little is known about the disease.
Ovarian cancer has been called a ‘silent killer’ because there is no effective way to screen for it and it is generally diagnosed in the late stages. Continue reading
Major study reveals the health threat including cereal, energy bars, sausages and chocolate
Eating processed food significantly raises the risk of cancer, experts warned. They said the disease was claiming more lives because of the popularity of ready meals and sugary cereals and fizzy drinks.
The products put middle-aged women in particular danger from breast cancer, according to a study in the British Medical Journal. ‘Ultra-processed’ food – any product involving an industrial procedure – now makes up half of our diet. Continue reading
Books can inspire and support us in so many ways. We can get lost in beautiful fiction novels, or we can benefit from practical tips from a “how-to” book. As my team and I have supported women in over 39 countries, we always recommend a list of books that will encourage them through their journey. In fact, we ask them to commit to reading and doing the work specified in these books, so they can shift beliefs and patterns that may be holding them back, consciously or subconsciously.

A governing body of residents limited shift hours. But its good intentions to keep physicians fresh could also leave them ill-prepared.
The national governing body of physician training, the American Council of Graduate Medical Education (ACGME), limits the number of hours doctors in training can work in a given week. Generally speaking, on average, residents can be at the hospital for only 80 hours over a seven-day period. This hour limit is blunt and uniform across all types of physicians, from pediatricians to neurosurgeons. Continue reading
People who refuse chemotherapy treatment live on average 12 and a half years longer than people who undergo chemotherapy, says Dr. Jones.
According to recent statistics, approximately 1 in 2 men and 1 in 3 women will develop cancer in their lifetimes. This saddening reality is made worse when it is acknowledged that modern methods of ‘treating’ the disease are often ineffective and only make the symptoms of the disease worse. In fact, according to one Berkeley doctor, chemotherapy doesn’t work 97% of the time. Continue reading
The same pharma companies that profited from the opioid epidemic in the US by hooking patients on their drugs are profiting again as their victims migrate to heroin and participate in needle exchange programs, an attorney told RT.
The opioid epidemic is one of the biggest stories of 2017. The number of people dying from big pharma’s prescription narcotics has skyrocketed. But the same pharmaceutical companies that profited from creating the crisis in the first place, and received a slap on the wrist for it, are now profiting from it again, attorney Peter Mougey said in an interview with RT America’s Mike Papantonio.

If you knew about a “miracle pill” that could significantly boost your health and lifespan, wouldn’t you want to know more about it?
According to Dr. Michael Greger, a renowned doctor at some of the top medical institutions in the United States, a “simple dietary prescription” he calls the “Daily Dozen” can do just that. Continue reading
In a world full of diseases and conditions, researchers and scientists are constantly searching for cures. But the easiest way to deal with a disease and condition is trying to prevent it before it occurs. Granted, a lot of diseases and conditions are genetic, so it’s almost impossible to prevent those. But something like a heart attack can be prevented. Heart attack signals are constantly present and by not acknowledging them, you increase the risk of them occurring. Continue reading
