Cancer is not 'bad luck', 5-points, and the 0-5-30 rule

According to Vogelstein's study, we can't do much against 'bad luck' but we can succeed in controlling other factors like lifestyle, and nutrition.  [1] For example, we could adopt the 0-5-30 rule: 0 cigarettes, at least 5 portions of fresh fruit and vegetables, and 30 minutes of moderate exercise. Cancer is a complex topic, and a big business...

CAR T Cells: Engineering Patients’ Immune Cells to Treat Cancer

For years, the foundations of cancer treatment were surgery, chemotherapy, and radiation therapy. Over the last two decades, targeted therapies like imatinib (Gleevec®) and trastuzumab (Herceptin®)—drugs that target cancer cells by homing in on specific molecular changes seen primarily in those cells—have also cemented themselves as standard treatm...

Western diet now killing more than smoking and high blood pressure, study suggests

Stereotypical western diets high in salt, fat and lacking fruit or fibre, are responsible for more deaths around the world than smoking and high blood pressure, a study has shown. Around a fifth of all the deaths in the world can be attributed to unhealthy eating, which is a major driver of heart disease, cancer and diabetes. The analysis comparing...

How a Vaccine is made

Eating even a moderate amount of red or processed meat is linked with an increased risk of colorectal (bowel) cancer, according to a new study published Wednesday. People who ate 76 grams of red and processed meat per day -- that's in line with current guidelines and roughly the same as a quarter-pound beef burger -- had a 20% higher chance of deve...

What about gray hair?

Cancer.Net Editorial Board ​ Proton therapy is a type of radiation treatment that uses protons to treat cancer. It's also called proton beam therapy. A proton is a positively charged particle. At high energy, protons can destroy cancer cells. Doctors may use proton therapy alone. Or, they may combine it with other treatments, such as standard radia...

Sesame seeds and Walnuts.

​ Genome editing (also called gene editing) is a group of technologies that give scientists the ability to change an organism's DNA. These technologies allow genetic material to be added, removed, or altered at particular locations in the genome. Several approaches to genome editing have been developed. A recent one is known as CRISPR-Cas9, which i...

Did COVID-19 save the world?

American Cancer Society ​ Like drugs, dietary supplements have risks and side effects. But sellers aren't required to do research studies in people to prove that a dietary supplement is safe. And unlike drugs, dietary supplements are mostly self-prescribed with no input from informed medical sources like doctors, nurses, or pharmacists. There's a l...

Cancer and Gene Therapy

Gene therapy is a cancer treatment that is still in the early stages of research. [1] Genes are coded messages that tell cells how to make proteins. Proteins are the molecules that control the way cells behave. Our genes decide what we look like and how our body works. We have many thousands of separate genes. Genes are made of DNA and they are in ...

Research proves the power of Love

US National Cancer Institute,  BRCA1 and BRCA2: Cancer Risk and Genetic Testing, April 1, 2015  BRCA1 and BRCA2 are human genes that produce tumor suppressor proteins. These proteins help repair damaged DNA and, therefore, play a role in ensuring the stability of the cell's genetic material. When either of these genes is mutated...

How the mind and heart can be changed by humanity?

Nature  Chromosomal translocations that generate in-frame oncogenic gene fusions are notable examples of the success of targeted cancer therapies1,2,3. We have previously described gene fusions of FGFR3-TACC3 (F3–T3) in 3% of human glioblastoma cases4. Subsequent studies have reported similar frequencies of F3–T3 in many other cancers, indicat...
