What Happens to Dead Cancer Cells In the Human Body

When a Cancer cell is killed or dies an immune response occurs. This means many things are happening that are involved with the immune system. One of the bodies many partners in the immune system is the macrophage cell. A macrophage cell can literally detect dead cells through smell, much like a scavenger bird detects dead animals. Whenever dead cells reach the part of the bloodstream patrolled by Continue reading

The Cost of Cancer Treatment with Chemothreapy is Going Up

The public outcry’s are overwhelming with the cost of cancer treatment and prescription drugs like chemotherapy. A new report from the IMS Institute finds that global spending on oncology treatments reached $100 billion last year, which represented a 10.3% increase from the previous year and a huge rise from $75 billion spent five years ago.

NASA is Supporting the Race to Beat Cancer from Space

There are scientists and researchers running tests aboard the International Space Station in an effort to learn more in cancer biology. Since its founding fifty years ago in 1958, NASA’s exploration and research missions have benefited people around the world through the expansion of our civilization’s horizons, the acquisition of knowledge, and the development of new technologies and applications that provide amazing new advances in the quality of human life. Continue reading

What is Carcinogenesis and Cell Transformation in Cancer

We all have non normal cells, this is well known in the scientific world, but not quite understood by the general public. The Cell Cycle has been intensively studied to help in determining the cause of cancer. This has actually been going on for centuries, from Otto Warburg in the 1920’s to a recent publication in 2014 with the new definition of Carcinogenesis, almost 100 years later. So now what?

The Nutrient Interrelationships of Minerals – Vitamins – Endocrines and Health

Originally published in Journal of Orthomolecular Medicine Vol. 5, No. 1, 1990

BY DAVID L. WATTS, D.C., PH.D., F.A.C.E.P.1

Nutritional therapeutics has largely been directed toward the recognition and correction of nutritional deficiencies. It is now becoming evident that a loss of homeostatic equilibrium between the nutrients can also have an adverse effect upon health. A loss of this vital balance, particularly between the trace elements, can lead to subclinical deficiencies.

Nutrient interrelationships are complex, especially among the trace elements. A mineral cannot be affected without affecting Continue reading

The Future of Cancer Treatments A New Paradigm

For more than a century, cancers have been classified by the organ or tissue where they begin – the breast, lungs, bone marrow, digestive system, and so on – and therapies have been geared to those specific areas. Fortunately, as we’ve learned more about the basic biological processes at work in cancer, a new perspective has emerged. Continue reading
