New Cancer Drug Defeats Multiple Tumors

A promising new immunotherapy drug as gained expanded approval from federal regulators for patients whose cancers have a specific genetic signature — the first time a drug has been cleared for use not tied to the site of a tumor.

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration ruling opens the door to redefining cancer, and treatment, not by site — like breast, prostate, or lung cancer — but by the genetic blueprint of the tumor, regardless of where it appears in the body.

New Tumor Evidence Found in Confidential Glyphosate Data

Major news on the glyphosate front: the first ever independent analysis of the complete confidential data set sent by industry to the EU for the re-licensing of glyphosate shows EFSA and ECHA’s safety assessment would have failed to identify several cases of tumors and cancer following an exposure to the substance. It is high time the complete data set is published in full to enable scrutiny by the scientific community.

Link between radiation exposure and first and second cancers exposed by researchers


Large-scale population studies of survivors of the nuclear attacks on Hiroshima and Nagasaki have confirmed that radiation exposure can lead to multiple cancers that manifest separately over the course of years or decades -- a finding with implications not just in cases of nuclear accidents or attacks but also for radiation-based cancer treatments.

Antibiotics found to halt chemotherapy drugs from killing tumors


One of the biggest problems with Western medicine's reliance on drug-based solutions to disease is that these conventional modalities can interfere with one another, often creating new problems that require even more drug-based solutions, and so on. And a new study published in the peer-reviewed journal Science illustrates this point particularly as it pertains to cancer, the conventional treatments for which are hampered by the use of antibiotic drugs.

Maitake mushrooms can inhibit tumor growth and boost immunity


The maitake, also known in English-speaking countries as the hen-of-the-woods, is a large, earthy-brown mushroom that grows at the base of trees, especially oaks. It is native to northeastern Japan and certain parts of North America, and is one of Japan's major culinary mushrooms. It is equally popular in China, where it has been used in traditional medicine for centuries due to its alleged healing properties.

Omega-3 fatty acid compound found to halt cancerous tumor growth and metastasis


Mainstream media sources continue to trumpet headlines about the decline in cancer rates leading many to believe that modern medicine has conquered this devastating disease through a systematic regimen of slashing, burning and poisoning. Yet nearly 1.7 million people will be diagnosed with some form of cancer this year and more than 550,000 will die from the number two killer of men, women and children. These statistics should not be surprising as millions of unsuspecting individuals continue to avoid lifestyle modifications that have been shown to dramatically lower the risk of cancer.
