The prostate gland is an organ only found in men and is essential to the male reproductive system. This walnut-sized gland is located just beneath the bladder and secretes prostate fluid, a major component of which is male sperm. Inflammation and cancer of the prostate are all too common health concerns amongst men today. However, prostate cancer prevention and even reversal is possible through a healthy lifestyle.
Cancer, second only to heart disease as a cause of death in the United States, claims over 591,000 lives per year. Now, a groundbreaking study conducted at Stony Brook University in New York shows that 90 percent of all cancers – many more than had been previously thought – may be caused by environmental and lifestyle factors, such as smoking, drinking and diet. The findings, which suggest that cancer is more preventable than previously believed, inject a note of hope into the battle against this devastating disease.
Many people who survive cancer fear recurrence after their treatment ends, according to a study that suggests these concerns may lead to unnecessary tests. Data from 12 previously published studies involving 849 patients show that after completing treatment, patients want as many follow-up exams and tests as possible to reassure them that tumors have not returned, researchers found.
“Patients want intensive follow-up which comprises a lot of testing,” said senior study author Geertruida de Bock, of the University of Groningen in the Netherlands.
What would you think about eating a mushroom that looks a little like the scruff of a lion? Not totally convinced about lion’s mane mushroom? What if I told you that it’s associated with major brain repair, potential cancer-fighting power and is undergoing research on dozens of other health benefits?
Lion’s mane mushroom is a nootropic food very popular in traditional Chinese medicine. A large body of research has focused around this brain-boosting mushroom in the last few years, and the results are nothing short of astounding.
The Budwig Diet is an amazing protocol that has proven to help heal cancer and it consists of two basic ingredients: flax seeds and cottage cheese.
Did you hear that right?
You bet! And, this diet has proven to work for more than half a century.
The origins of the Budwig Diet date back to the 1950’s
The Budwig Diet was created by Dr. Johanna Budwig, a German biochemist, blood specialist, physicist and top cancer researcher. She was also a 7-time Nobel prize nominee and an expert on nutrition and pharmaceuticals for the German government in the 1950’s.
People who eat a lot of saturated fat - the “bad” kind of fat that’s abundant in foods like butter and beef - are more likely to develop lung cancer than individuals on low-fat diets, a recent study suggests. Compared to adults who didn’t get a lot of fat in their diets, people who ate the most total fat and saturated fat were 14 percent more likely to get lung malignancies, the study found. For current and former smokers, the added risk of a high fat diet was 15 percent.
Concerns about the link between the aluminum salts used in deodorant and breast cancer have hit a fever pitch in Switzerland, where a new bill was passed on May 5 that could ban the ingredient entirely. It will also fund further research into the role aluminum salts play in breast cancer. The bill won approval with a vote of 126 to 58.
Anyone worrying about skin cancer may benefit from eating a diet rich in antioxidants containing tomatoes as these can naturally boost your skin’s levels of sun protection.
According to a new study by Ohio State University, daily tomato consumption can ‘slash skin cancer tumor development by as much as 50 per cent’.
The study published in Scientific Reports discovered that male mice fed a diet of ten per cent tomato powder each day over a course of 35 weeks had a 50% reduction in skin cancer tumors.
Researchers from The University of Texas at Austin have discovered something that the cancer industry would prefer you don’t know about: A combination of natural, everyday foods can help prevent the growth of prostate cancer.
Yet another new study published in Science Translational Medicine shows that chemotherapy promotes cancer metastasis.
Cancers figure among the leading causes of morbidity and mortality worldwide. Between 2005 and 2015, cancer cases increased by 33 percent and the number of new cases is expected to rise by about 70% over the next just two decades under the current global disease promoting paradigm.
