Sarcoma, The Cancer Of Connective Tissues

Sarcoma is a rare cancer in adults (1% of all adult cancers), but  prevalent in children (about 20% of all childhood cancers). It is made up of many “subtypes” because it can arise from a variety of tissue structures (nerves, muscles, joints, bone, fat, blood vessels – collectively referred to as the body’s “connective tissues”). Because these tissues are found everywhere on the body, Sarcomas can arise anywhere. Thus, within each site of the more “common” cancers there is the occasional surprise sarcoma diagnosis (e.g., breast sarcoma, stomach sarcoma, lung sarcoma, ovarian sarcoma, etc.). The most frequent location are the limbs since this is where the majority of the body’s connective tissue resides. They are commonly hidden deep in the body, so sarcoma is often diagnosed when it has already become too large to expect a hope of being cured. Although a lot of the lumps and bumps we get are benign, people should have them looked at by a doctor at an early stage in case it is sarcoma.

Cancer Risks And Obesity

There is research suggesting the impact obesity has on the development of certain cancers.

According to  Sir Richard Doll and Richard Peto, 35% of cancer deaths in the USA might be linked to diet. This is particularly certain for endometrium and breast cancer.

The Washington School of Medicine, submitted a  document which explains obesity accounts for about 20% of all cancer cases.

Overview of Skin Cancer Tumors – Melanoma – Squamous Cell Carcinoma – Basal Cell Carcinoma

Each year in the U.S. over 5.4 million cases of non melanoma skin cancer are treated. Skin cancer is the most common of all human cancers. Cancer occurs when normal cells transform, grow and multiply without normal controls. They form a tumor. Tumors are cancerous only if they are malignant. They encroach on and invade neighboring tissues. 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.

Bioavailable Ionic Minerals for Disease Mitigation

The Cancer Cell (CC) Formula is an experimental treatment which is currently being researched on cancer, infectious and other diseases. This technology targets cells which do not follow the Krebs metabolic cycle by delivering a lethal dose of minerals (zinc and copper) to those cells. Because cancer cells follow an anaerobic, non-Krebs metabolism, it is predicted to target cancer cells precisely. Normal, healthy cells which follow the Krebs cycle should absorb the minerals that they need and reject the rest. Because bacteria and fungi follow non-Krebs metabolic cycles, the product may also be capable of treating a variety of infections. Continue reading

The Need for Cancer Treatment Overhaul – A 10 Trillion Dollar Bomb

The numbers add up with even conservative simple math! Most Cancers form at the age of 60 with millions of baby boomers coming to that age and using 1 out of every ten would require cancer treatment + the current cost of Cancer Treatment for the world at 1 Trillion = A 10 Trillion Dollar Global Economic Bomb. Backed up with facts…. Continue reading
