A compound found in olive oil may help to prevent cancer developing in the brain, a study shows. Research into oleic acid — the primary ingredient in olive oil — has shown how it can help prevent cancer-causing genes from functioning in cells. The oily substance — one of a group of nutrients known as […]

‘RIG, RAD, RUN: Radiation Monitoring, Fukushima, and Our Nuclear Dystopia’ addresses the shortcomings and manipulations in the radiation monitoring responses of the U.S. EPA and FDA in the wake of the Fukushima disaster. In the book, author Andrew Kishner argues that preconceived, unscientific notions corrupted the EPA’s sampling and testing activities to monitor Fukushima radiation […]

Can Cannabinoids Be Used To Treat Cancer?

can-cannabinoids-be-used-to-treat-cancer-1024w

When cannabinoids activate signaling pathways in cancer cells they can stimulate a cell death mechanism called apoptosis, unleashing a potent anti-tumor effect. Yet cannabinoids, which have also shown strong activity against human tumor tissue grown in animal models, have undergone minimal testing in patients. Their potential use as anti-tumor drugs and/or to boost the effectiveness […]

Penn State researchers have shown that microwave heating or roasting garlic can diminish or destroy its anti-cancer activity – unless the herb is chopped or crushed, and allowed to “stand” for at least 10 minutes before cooking. Kun Song, doctoral candidate in nutrition, and Dr. John A. Milner, professor and head of the Department of […]

Vitamin C May Encourage Blood Cancer Stem Cells to Die

Vitamin C may “tell” faulty stem cells in the bone marrow to mature and die normally, instead of multiplying to cause blood cancers. This is the finding of a study led by researchers from Perlmutter Cancer Center at NYU Langone Health, and published online August 17 in the journal Cell. Certain genetic changes are known to reduce the […]

Sunbathers may want to avoid midnight snacks before catching some rays. A study in mice from the O’Donnell Brain Institute and UC Irvine shows that eating at abnormal times disrupts the biological clock of the skin, including the daytime potency of an enzyme that protects against the sun’s harmful ultraviolet radiation. Although further research is […]
