Cancer statistics are faceless; the illness is real.
Your "Pharmaphilic" Media Botches Another Story
by Andrew W. Saul, Editor
(OMNS Jan 31, 2014) Yet another media hatchet job on vitamin E is, predictably, getting lots of attention. This particular attack is just one more in an embarrassingly long series. It is based on a recent study proclaiming that vitamin E promotes cancer. (Sayin et al. Antioxidants accelerate lung cancer progression in mice. Sci Transl Med 29 January 2014: 6: 221 http://stm.sciencemag.org/content/6/221/221ra15 )
According to Breastcancer.org, an estimated 255,180 new cases of breast cancer are expected to be diagnosed in the United States in 2017 alone. One in 8 women – or 12 percent – will develop invasive breast cancer at some point in their lives. And, cancer of all types constitutes the No.2 leading cause of death in the country – second only to heart disease. But, in this special report, you’ll discover how a powerful (anticancer) compound called, sulforaphane can help protect your life.
England’s failure in the war on cancer: lunacy on parade

You may be too scared to try apple or apricot seeds, bitter almonds or cherry pits. It’s the cyanide content that freaks you out, right? But, the latest research will change your mind for good. Well, “latest” may not be the right word, because this theory has been here since the 1950s.
Cyanide is deadly, but not in the way it’s used in the treatment of cancer. Convincing others that cyanide will only kill you is a simple act of ignorance. It would take too many seeds before the cyanide contained in them kills you.
The US Food and Drug Administration calls it "cruel deception": companies promising desperate consumers that their products can cure cancer.
On Tuesday, the agency responsible for policing the American food and drug market issued warning letters to 14 companies that it says are "illegally selling more than 65 products that fraudulently claim to prevent, diagnose, treat or cure cancer."
"Take two aspirin and call me in the morning" has been the punchline for countless jokes. Could it also be good advice for cancer patients?
A lab study to appear in the July 2015 issue of Laboratory Investigation found that a daily dose of aspirin was effective at blocking breast tumor growth. Previous studies have already shown a similar effect on colon, gastrointestinal, prostate, and other cancers.
In a breakthrough in the understanding of how cancer does its deadly work, researchers at the University of Virginia School of Medicine have shown that many cancers - including nearly all pancreatic cancers - enslave and deform mitochondria, the powerhouses of cells, to create an environment more conducive to tumor growth.
In the early 20th century, the German biochemistOtto Warburg believed that tumors could be treated by disrupting their source of energy. His idea was dismissed for decades — until now.
