A new study published in the journal Anticancer Research titled, "Natural Products That Target Cancer Stem Cells," has made our job much easier of identifying this special category of cancer killers by reviewing the extant literature on the topic and listing the top 25 substances in this category. They are listed here below, along with some of their commonly recognizable dietary sources:
Fifty chemicals the public is exposed to on a daily basis may trigger cancer when combined
A global taskforce of 174 scientists from leading research centres across 28 countries studied the link between mixtures of commonly encountered chemicals and the development of cancer. The study selected 85 chemicals not considered carcinogenic to humans and found 50 supported key cancer-related mechanisms at exposures found in the environment today.

Not long ago, researchers at the world-renowned University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center published a groundbreaking scientific review of their favorite anti-cancer nutrient — curcumin. Curcumin, along with several other nutrients, is remarkable in that it can actually tell the difference between a healthy cell and a cancer cell.
According to Wellness Resources, here is how the researchers explained their interest in curcumin:
It’s been a rough few weeks for me...

I just found out a third homeschooling mentor-friend of mine was recently diagnosed with an aggressive form of breast cancer that has spread.
She’s had both breasts removed and now they are talking about removing her uterus…
So far, she seems to be following the allopathic model for cancer treatment.
Unfortunately, the success rates for surgery, chemotherapy and radiation are not all that promising.
Cancer cells appear to depend on an unusual survival mechanism to spread around the body, according to an early study led by Queen Mary University of London (QMUL). The discovery could help with future development of novel treatments to prevent metastasis and secondary tumours.
The spread of cancer around the body – metastasis – is one of the biggest challenges in cancer treatment. It is often not the original tumour that kills, but secondary growths. These happen when cancer cells are able to break away from the primary site, travel around the body and ‘seed’ new tumours.
You may not have been an athletic kid, and that’s fine. Playing sports after school is not for everyone. But if you instead spent your time sitting on a couch with friends watching television or battling it out in video games, you might have put on pounds over time. While being a little overweight may not seem like a huge deal to you in young adulthood, your best course of action is to make the effort to shed your excess weight now. Not only does it become harder to do as you age, but there are major health benefits involved.
Just like mosquitos are the vectors of spread for malaria, a landmark article published recently in one of the most prestigious medical journals described large food corporations as the vectors of spread for chronic disease. Unlike “infectious disease epidemics, however, these corporate disease vectors implement sophisticated campaigns to undermine public health interventions.” Most mosquitoes don’t have as good PR firms.
Can probiotics really reduce the risk of breast cancer? The answer may surprise you.
Everyone seems to be talking about the benefits of probiotics these days, and with good reason. They have been linked with health effects like improved digestive and urinary function, a stronger immune system, the healing of IBS and other inflammatory bowel issues plus so much more.
(NaturalHealth365) While never short of anecdotal evidence, scientists now say they have uncovered biological proof that the simple act of singing can give the immune system a much-needed boost. This new evidence gives hope that spending some time engaged in choir singing could be an effective therapy for cancer patients.
