7 MEALS THAT KILL CANCER.

Published

on

According to newest research, 7 ingredients have the power to increase the effectiveness of cancer treatment and when consumed regularly, they can even prevent further spread of cancer cells.

You’re probably wondering which foods are these and whether you like eating them or not. You’ll be surprised to hear that they’re very tasty and people like eating them. That is, there is rarely a person who dislikes black chocolate, blueberries, tomatoes, turmeric, curry, green tea, and red wine.

Besides being tasty, these foods can prevent the development of cancer by inhibiting angiogenesis, that is, they cut off the blood supply to the cancer cells which results in reduced growth of the cancer cells. And, when the cells are deprived of new blood vessels, they lack the nutrients and oxygen for further development.

Angiogenesis is a physiological process of blood vessel formation during early stages of fetal development. This process happens throughout our lives as well, that is, any time we damage the blood cells through burns, cuts, and other injuries. This is how new blood vessels form and it has to do a lot with cancer, as you could previously read.

The previously mentioned foods are important because they have the same anti-angiogenesis effect. Let’s take a look at each of the foods separately:

Red wine- resveratrol, present in grape skins, has the power to prevent premature aging and heart disease. Moreover, this is a potent substance that can also better the glucose tolerance, increase the energy and mental alertness, remove free radicals, bacteria, and viruses, and repair DNA. In fact, 225 ml of red wine supplies you with 640 mcg of resveratrol whereas Bordeaux and Pinot Noir have even higher concentrations.
Dark chocolate- chocolate with 70% cocoa is good for the cardiovascular health, but it’s also good in increasing the effectiveness of the cancer treatment.
Coffee and green tea– these drinks improve the energy levels and reduce the growth of cancer.
Tomatoes-newest study done at Harvard showed that regular consumption of organic tomatoes decreases the chances of prostate cancer by 50%. Also, the study pointed out the ability of tomatoes to impede angiogenesis due to their high amount of lycopene, a potent anti-cancer agent.

Lycopene is easily metabolized and its concentration increases even more when it’s exposed to high temperatures-this is why cooked tomatoes are more efficient in the prevention of cancer growth.
Turmeric-besides being an excellent aid in the weight loss process, this amazing spice can prevent the onset of cancer and its development.
Raspberries and blueberries-rich in phytochemicals, these berries have anti-cancer characteristics, especially when it comes to ovarian cancer. They also lower the oxidative stress and angiogenesis.

DR Congo blame Unending Ebola Outbreak on Violence , Community Mistrust.

Published

on

DR Congo Ministry of Health spokesperson Jessica Ilunga has declared that violence and community mistrust have continued to hamper all efforts to control and end the fresh Ebola outbreak, which started Aug. 1.



Though according to the World Health Organization the number of new Ebola cases has dropped slightly in the Democratic Republic of the Congo as there are 33% fewer cases to date in February compared with the same time period in December per STAT’s Helen Branswell, but some experts warn Axios that there remain signs that this outbreak is far from over.

Meanwhile, some experts warn that, that doesn’t mean the world’s second-largest Ebola outbreak on record is yet under control, and in fact it could simply be moving to new areas of the sprawling country.

Johns Hopkins’ public health expert Jennifer Nuzzo maintains there are several reasons people should continue to view this outbreak as a cause for concern.

However, Nuzzo said Congo needs more than money from the international community and the U.S. in particular. Safety concerns have largely caused the CDC to limit its Ebola experts to the capital city of Kinshasa, where some have returned after being evacuated during an uptick in election-related violence, Nuzzo added that Now is the time for the U.S. to send them into the field.

Sports head injuries Balanced reportage is required – Experts

Published

on

A group of more than 60 leading international neuroscientists, including Mark Herceg, PhD, a neuropsychologist at Northwell Health’s Phelps Hospital in Sleepy Hollow, NY, and a member of The Feinstein Institute for Medical Research, published a correspondence today in The Lancet Neurology, asking for balance when reporting on sports-related injury chronic traumatic encephalopathy (CTE). CTE is a type of dementia associated with exposure to repeated concussions, and has been linked with a variety of contact sports such as boxing, football, American football and rugby.



Although CTE is commonly featured in the news media and discussed among peers, the medical community is just beginning to understand how to recognize the disease, guidelines for how to assess its severity have yet to be established.

“We don’t currently have a clear understanding of the link between CTE pathology and any specific symptoms,” noted Dr. Herceg. “It’s important to note to the public at large that CTE is at an early stage of scientific and medical understanding, with many important aspects of the disease yet to be established.”

“Dr. Herceg and his colleague’s CTE research is timely and impactful as a major step forward to more clearly defining the risk and prevalence of this important syndrome,” said Kevin J. Tracey, MD, president and CEO of the Feinstein Institute.
