Anti-histamines may prevent, treat melanoma

About 2 years ago I did a post discussing the hypothesis that melanoma is an endocrine tumor, similar to breast cancer – i.e. driven by estrogen. In fact, if one has the time to dig into the published literature on all known malignancies, it quickly becomes apparent that virtually all cancers can be classified as … Read more Anti-histamines may prevent, treat melanoma

My first scientific study: Anti-cancer effects of CortiNon+

After more than 9 months of dealing with scientific bureaucracy, publishing politics, carefully crafting wording to avoid “rocking the boat”, and of course the “minor” issues of funding a study with personal income, I am pleased to present the two publications below (one of them co-authored by me). Namely, the results of both an in-vitro … Read more My first scientific study: Anti-cancer effects of CortiNon+

“Anti-aging” hormone (hGH) may actually shorten life

The duo of hGH/IGF-1 does not need an introduction. Hardly a day passes without some ad on TV promoting the latest and greatest product that “naturally boosts” either hGH or IGF-1 levels. The two hormones have an almost perfect correlation – each one inducing the endogenous synthesis of the other. Clinics catering to the super … Read more “Anti-aging” hormone (hGH) may actually shorten life

PUFA increases risk of all cancers, especially prostate

The bad news for PUFA just keep on coming. There seems to be no health pathology that PUFA does not promote, even indirectly. The study below demonstrates that BOTH omega-3 and omega-6 increase risk of ANY cancer and death from it, but specifically the risk of aggressive prostate cancer. It is mind boggling that in … Read more PUFA increases risk of all cancers, especially prostate

PUFA is a cancer “sensitizer”

A neat study, which demonstrates that in addition to its direct carcinogenic effects, PUFA is also a cancer “sensitizer” – i.e. is triggers the development of cancer in the presence of less-than-healthy chemicals that are relatively harmless by themselves. This sensitizing role of PUFA seems to be well-known to the research community and applies to … Read more PUFA is a cancer “sensitizer”

PUFA increases risks of skin cancers

As the study says – not total fat but its composition in the diet is what drives (skin) cancer risk. And as expected, PUFA “shines” once again. What is particular good about this study is that it exposes both omega-6 and omega-3 as cancer-promoting. Omega-3 has been the defense of last resort for modern nutritional … Read more PUFA increases risks of skin cancers

Blocking PUFA supply halts brain cancer (glioblastoma)

Just a few days ago I posted about the strikingly therapeutic effects of vitamin B3 in brain cancer (glioblastoma). The mechanism of action of niacin in that study was deemed to be boosting of the immune system’s ability to recognize the tumor and destroy it. In that post I opined that I suspect niacin’s inhibition … Read more Blocking PUFA supply halts brain cancer (glioblastoma)

Restoring energy production in immune cells is therapeutic in cancer

The title of the popular press article is kind of the reverse of mine – i.e. cancer cells evade treatment by blocking energy production in immune cells (T-cells). However, my title still holds since the actual study did show that restoring energy production in T-cells restores the effectiveness of immune-boosting therapies for cancer. Either way, … Read more Restoring energy production in immune cells is therapeutic in cancer

Vitamin C and Immuno-Oncology

Just posting this to keep my readers aware that after mocking Linus Pauling for half a century mainstream medicine now seems eager to embrace his therapies of cancer using high-doe vitamin C. Unfortunately, it appears even staff writers at ScienceMag are unaware that therapies with vitamin C have already been proven effective and one of … Read more Vitamin C and Immuno-Oncology

High-salt diet strongly inhibits cancer growth

I am posting this study mostly as a response to the hostile exchanges I have had with doctors over what they claimed was “irresponsible” promotion of high salt intake. While these discussions mostly revolved around CVD, I also made claims that increased sodium intake would be protective for cancer as well. Needless to say, this … Read more High-salt diet strongly inhibits cancer growth
