The use of medicinal plants as an alternative treatment to various health conditions is a common practice in many cultures.
Coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10) is a super antioxidant that has shown to have great benefits for overall health. But can this fat-soluble compound also help with cancer, including breast cancer? Recent research says yes!
Millions of women use brand name deodorants straight from a drug store or grocery store shelf without giving any thought to the toxic chemicals lurking within.
When cannabinoids activate signaling pathways in cancer cells they can stimulate a cell death mechanism called apoptosis, unleashing a potent anti-tumor effect.

Women who struggle with obesity are at higher risk for breast cancer, and a look at hormones like estrogen and androgen is providing some possible explanations.
