Link between prostate cancer and vitamin A may lead to improved treatment

September 5, 2012

Cancer scientists at the University of York have shown a link between prostate cancer and vitamin A for the first time. Professor Norman Maitland, who was awarded £2.15m by Yorkshire Cancer Research a year ago to continue his groundbreaking research into prostate cancer, has found that a prostate specific gene is under the control of retinoic acid – a derivative of vitamin A. The discovery, which is published in the scientific journal Nucleic Acids Research, means that it will now be possible to test whether retinoic acid, if given therapeutically, can force prostate cancer stem cells to develop into more specialised cells – a process known as differentiation - which could kill them or render them more susceptible to chemotherapy.

Comment: As with the news earlier this year that high doses of vitamin C makes it easier for radiation therapy to kill brain tumour cells in cancer patients, the publication of this study is yet another sign that the 'cancer industry' realizes the replacement of chemotherapy and radiation by natural health approaches is now inevitable. For the meantime, however, in this study, it is still trying to control the field of prostate cancer treatment by advocating the ‘marrying' of an old profitable approach (chemotherapy) with a new approach (vitamin A). This 'delaying tactic' is being employed for one reason only: To protect the Pharma Cartel's near-trillion dollar a year income by diverting people's attention away from Dr. Rath's discoveries and the research conducted at the Dr. Rath Research Institute, which, without using either chemotherapy or radiotherapy, have already been shown to block all key mechanisms that make cancer a deadly disease.

Review Shows CoQ10 Beneficial for Blood Vessel Health

August 22, 2012

Blood vessel dysfunction, characterized by a decrease in an ability to either constrict or relax properly, is considered to be an early marker for atherosclerosis. Blood vessel dysfunction is also a reliable predictor of having a heart attack or stroke, all of which combine to make heart disease as the #1 cause of death in the United States over the past few decades. Because research suggests blood vessel dysfunction can nearly triple the risk of having a cardiovascular event while other research shows improved blood vessel function can reduce the risk of cardiovascular events by 86%, ways to help improve blood vessel function are a priority. Now a new study suggests that CoQ10, shown previously to help maintain healthy levels of cholesterol and inflammation, may also help blood vessel health.

How Doctors Do Harm

September 11, 2012

The tide is turning. When once it was unheard of for a doctor's opinion to be challenged, today's patients are getting second and third opinions, seeking out alternative care and pursuing natural, organic solutions to their health issues. And now the medical system is being challenged by none other than the Chief Medical and Scientific Officer and Executive Vice President of the American Cancer Society. How We Do Harm: A Doctor Breaks Ranks About Being Sick In America by Dr. Otis Webb Brawley, exposes the nasty side of medicine – those things we hear of, suspect, and experience that erode our confidence in conventional medical treatment.

Common painkillers 'increase' risk of early death in heart attack survivors

September 11, 2012

Common painkillers such as ibuprofen increase the risk of dying or having a second heart attack among heart attack survivors, researchers have warned. A study shows that taking the common painkillers can put those who have already had one heart attack at a heightened risk of having another for at least five years. The findings confirm the potential dangers of taking a group of non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs known as NSAIDs.

Jury decides hormone therapy caused Utah woman’s breast cancer

September 7, 2012

A federal jury awarded $5.1 million in compensatory damages to a Utah woman Friday after finding hormone therapy drugs caused her breast cancer and drugmakers were negligent because they failed to adequately warn of that risk on labels provided to doctors and patients. The U.S. District Court jury, comprised of seven women and five men, sat through four weeks of expert testimony and scientific presentations before being handed the case early Wednesday afternoon. They came back with a decision two days later.
