Organic And Natural Ways To Fight Cancer

Processed meat – including the humble rasher, burgers and sausages – is as big a cancer threat as cigarettes, global health chiefs warned. Read More

The low incidence of bowel cancer in India is often attributed to natural antioxidants such as curcumin, the yellow pigment in the spice turmeric, used in curry powder. However, it is important to remember that the benefits of a diet are seldom produced by a single ingredient in that diet. For example, diets rich in beta-carotene lower the risk of tobacco-related cancers, but beta-carotene pills do not. That doesn’t stop researchers from trying, though. Read More

Apples in the bottom drawer, tomatoes up top, fish in the middle. Or should it be tomatoes in the drawer, fish up top, apples in the middle? All those shelves and drawers. Is there a “right” way to store food in the refrigerator? Read More

The risk from both pollution breathed in, and now via the skin, is where a noxious chemical enters the blood stream in sufficiently high concentrations as to cause a toxic reaction. Read More

Beets!!!!  Eat’em and be healthy!!! 😀


Finances never even entered my brain. I just looked forward to the day when my doctors would say I was “cancer-free” so I could figure out what I wanted to do and get on with it. If only it were that easy. Read More

While it’s no secret that many of their products contain harmful ingredients like high fructose corn syrup and aspartame despite Snapple’s infamous “made from the best stuff on Earth” catchphrase, there are other even more sinister chemicals lurking in your favorite beverage. What could that possibly be? Brominated vegetable oil (BVO): Also known as a flame retardant. It’s used in beverages to suspend flavorings and gives sports drinks and sodas their cloudy appearance.

Perhaps the most profoundly famous and notoriously infamous study was conducted by researchers at Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore, Maryland. It was profound because they isolated previously unknown powerful anti-cancer properties of broccoli sprouts. Read More

Yup, another post about broccoli. Well, broccoli sprouts pack a big anticancer punch and so I wanted to tell you about them. For some reason, the sprouts contain the same amount of anticancer compounds as giant clumps of fully grown broccoli. It is called sulforaphane. Read More

Federal Trade Commission officials have rejected a consumer group’s call for an investigation into whether Coca-Cola, Pepsico and other manufacturers have falsely advertised that artificially sweetened soft drinks and food products help people lose weight. Read More

While you can certainly learn a lot from the Institute’s website and Healing the Gerson Way, Gerson Basics offers folks a more interactive and visual way to learn about the Gerson Therapy. One of our recent Gerson Basics… Read More

Kale is an amazing green leafy and anti-inflammatory vegetable full of iron, calcium, omega 3 and omega 6 fatty acids. Kale has more iron than beef and is a great source of fiber that can help to prevent heart disease, arthritis and cancer. Read More

Last week, Poland became the fourteenth country in Europe to ban GMOs. One week later, the list of countries against genetically engineered crops has grown, with an estimated 17 EU nations in favor of boycotting GM maize and Monsanto altogether. Read More

Cancer affecting so many people in the world today, if you want remove cancer from your life your body must be balanced, and your immune system in top notch condition. While eating foods does not solve everything, they can be preventive agents that help destroy cancer cells at the base level and boost overall well-being. Read More

When you take a moment to reflect on the history of product development at Monsanto, what do you find? Here are twelve products that Monsanto has brought to market. See if you can spot the patternRead More

The glyphosate-based herbicide Roundup is an endocrine (hormone) disruptor in adult male rats, a new study shows. Read More

Scientific Ways To Fight Cancer

How could we live in a country (the U.S.) that systematically cut, maimed, and killed it’s people with treatment methods that did not work? Read More

The researchers identified a subset of CD4+ “helper” T cells that they call “tumor-recognizing CD4+ T cells” or TR-CD4 because of their unique ability to recognize and respond to cancer cells. These special CD4+ T cells are antigen-specific: they recognize the tumor antigen NY-ESO-1, which is expressed by many solid tumors, including ovarian, melanoma, prostate, lung, breast and synovial sarcoma cancers. Read More

For a malignant tumor to form, cancer cells must evade the immune system’s attack. Numerous studies have already shown that cancer spreads particularly aggressively if there is an unfavorable balance between suppressing and active immune cells in the tumor microenvironment. “But we didn’t know whether this is a consequence of an aggressive tumor or rather its cause,” says Rudolf Kaaks, epidemiologist at the German Cancer Research Center… Read More

Dr. Liu Speaks On Neuroendocrine Cancer


New palm-sized, MiniION sequencer, costing around $1,000, designed to analyse DNA to help track disease outbreaks, check food and offer ‘the democratisation of sequencing’ Read More

Recent studies show that cancer cells may also hide from the immune cells by “epigenetic silencing,” a process in which the expression of certain cell-surface molecules that are essential for the immune system to recognize and eliminate cancer cells is shut off.

Researchers from the Universities of Leicester and Nottingham are developing a revolutionary mini gamma ray camera that will improve the diagnosis of tumours and lymph nodes from patients’ bedsides. Read More

“We used materials that are public, freely available,” said Rienhoff, a physician and scientist, as Beatrice frolicked nearby. “And everything we’ve learned we’ve put back out there, in the public domain. It’s for the patient’s good, and the public good.” Read More

An international team of researchers have designed and synthetized a nanometer-scale DNA “machine” whose customized modifications enable it to recognize a specific target antibody. Read More

“It’s actually plausible that in 10 years we’ll have curative therapies for most if not all human cancers,” Gilliland told hundreds of industry and research leaders from around the world who were gathered in Seattle at the 2015 Life Science Innovation Northwest conference, an event hosted by the Washington Biotechnology & Biomedical Association. Read More

A patient with a neuroendocrine tumor (NET) has a rare form of cancer. The treatment at our center consists of the administration of the radioactive labeled protein lutetium octreotate. In this way it is possible to treat these tumors with precision. Due to this focused treatment patients often experience a relief of symptoms, leading to an improved quality of life. In order to qualify for Peptide Receptor Radionuclide Therapy the patient must meet specific criteria. The result of the treatment partly depends on the incorporation of the radioactive protein through the receptors on the tumor. Read more about PRRT treatment. Read More

You do your homework and find a great treatment for neuroendocrine cancer. It can stop or slow the disease for months, even years. New tumors may pop up in the liver and elsewhere but they’re usually slow-growing, removable and treatment side-effects are generally tolerable. It’s called PRRT – peptide receptor-nuclide therapy. Doesn’t work in all cases but the track record looks good. Read More

Express Scripts Holding Co., a large manager of prescription-drug benefits for U.S. employers and insurers, is seeking deals with pharmaceutical companies that would set pricing for some cancer drugs based on how well they work. Read More
