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

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

Emulsifiers found in most commercial foods cause brain tumors, hemorrhage, and stroke

A really interesting study that demonstrates how emulsifiers considered “benign” by the FDA/USDA and present in virtually all commercial food can actually cause quite a bit of damage to health. The study demonstrates that even a low-dose of a common commercial emulsifier Polysorbate 80 (P80) damages the mucosal barrier of the gut and increases both … Read more Emulsifiers found in most commercial foods cause brain tumors, hemorrhage, and stroke

Elevated ESR and hCG levels are strong predictors of impending cancer diagnosis

I am posting this study for two reasons. One of them is to corroborate a statement from Peat on the role of inflammation in cancer and the diagnostic value of “non-specific” (as the medical industry likes to call them) inflammatory biomarkers such as erythrocyte sedimentation rate (ESR). https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Erythrocyte_sedimentation_rate http://raypeat.com/articles/aging/bleeding-clotting-cancer.shtml “…It is commonly known that the … Read more Elevated ESR and hCG levels are strong predictors of impending cancer diagnosis

Arginine / glutamine depletion may treat cancer by blocking the Warburg “Effect”

As my readers have noticed, I started putting quotes around the “effect” part of the infamous observation made by Otto Warburg himself. Over the last 3-4 years, even mainstream medicine has started to publish studies acknowledging that the “effect” is very much a cause as well. In other words, acidosis is not benign and is … Read more Arginine / glutamine depletion may treat cancer by blocking the Warburg “Effect”

(Brain) Cancer is a metabolic disease, can be treated by glutamine restriction

It seems that mainstream medicine is finally wisening up to the massacre they have been orchestrating for the last 100 years. Without much fanfare or apologies, medicine is now quietly changing its story on cancer, hoping the public won’t notice as long as a cure is finally found. The study below is yet another one … Read more (Brain) Cancer is a metabolic disease, can be treated by glutamine restriction
