    SUGAR / FRUCTOSE

    Sugar can make some cancers grow including breast cancer and colon cancer says Lewis Cantley, PhD

    Dr. Sanjay Gupta: If you limit your sugar you decrease your chances of developing cancer?


    Lewis Cantley, PhD: Absolutely.


    Cantley, a Harvard professor and the head of the Beth Israel Deaconess Cancer Center, says when we eat or drink sugar, it causes a sudden spike in the hormone insulin, which can serve as a catalyst to fuel certain types of cancers.


    Lewis Cantley: What we're beginning to learn is that insulin can cause adverse effects in the various tissues. And of particular concern is cancer.


    Why? Nearly a third of some common cancers -- including breast and colon cancers -- have something called insulin receptors on their surface. Insulin binds to these receptors and signals the tumor to start consuming glucose [which allows it to grow].


    Lewis Cantley: Every cell in our body needs glucose to survive. But the trouble is, these cancer cells also use it to grow. So if you happen to have the tumor that has insulin receptors on it then it will get stimulated to take up the glucose that's in the bloodstream rather than go into fat or muscle, the glucose goes into the tumor. And the tumor uses it to grow.

    SUGAR / FRUCTOSE

    Don’t eat sugar says cancer researcher, Lewis Cantley, PhD

    Lewis Cantley's research team is working on developing drugs that will cut off the glucose supply to cancer cells and keep them from growing. But until there's a breakthrough, Cantley's advice? Don't eat sugar. And if you must, keep it to a minimum.


    Cantley, a Harvard professor and the head of the Beth Israel Deaconess Cancer Center, says when we eat or drink sugar, it causes a sudden spike in the hormone insulin, which can serve as a catalyst to fuel certain types of cancers.

    SLEEPING PILLS

    Sleeping pills estimated to cause 320,000 to 507,000 excess deaths per year in US alone

    Sleeping pills are estimated to cause 320,000 to 507,000 excess deaths per year in US alone according to a recent study by researchers at Scripps Clinic Viterbi Family Sleep Center in La Jolla, California, USA.

    "Rough order-of-magnitude estimates at the end of the supplemental files suggest that in 2010, hypnotics may have been associated with 320 000 to 507 000 excess deaths in the USA alone," the paper notes.

    BOOK - MALIGNANT MEDICAL MYTHS

    Cancer treatments are poor; 5-year survival rates manipulated, used to mislead, Joel Kauffman, PhD

Kauffman, PhD, the author of Malignant Medical Myths: Why Medical Treatment Causes 200,000 Deaths in the USA each Year, and How to Protect Yourself. Read the entire article | Email this article

    RHODIOLA ROSEA

    Rhodiola Rosea May Be Useful In Cancer Treatments

    Rhodiola rosea may be useful in cancer treatments, inhibiting tumor growth and decreasing metastasis ( the spread of cancer ) according to research done in rats as noted in the monograph for Rhodiola rosea.

    It was found to "[ enhance ] anti-tumor and anti-metastatic efficacy of drug treatment, as well as [ reduce ] drug-induced toxicity."

    Rhodiola rosea also prevented liver toxicity of a cancer drug. Read the entire article | Email this article

    NATURAL DESICCATED THYROID

    Hypothyroidism increases deaths from infections, heart attacks, cancer and emphysema, Mark Starr, MD

    Thyroid expert, Broda Barnes, MD, PhD found that heart attacks increased in Graz, Austria from one in 125 to one in 14 after antibiotics were introduced which prevented early deaths from tuberculosis, Mark Starr, MD notes in this audio clip.

    After analyzing 70,000 autopsies, Barnes also noted that prior to 1945 when antibiotics were introduced, people dying of tuberculosis had advanced atherosclerosis in their coronary arteries. After the introduction of antibiotics which prevented these deaths, deaths from heart attacks increased nearly 9-fold, from one in 125 deaths, to one in 14 deaths.

    Barnes also found that those dying of heart attacks, had evidence that they had had tuberculosis in their lungs.

    He then realized that hypothyroidism was the cause of both conditions.

    He also found that deaths from various cancers and emphysema increased 3-fold or more, suggesting to Barnes that hypothyroidism increases the risk of cancer and emphysema, and that treated people with desiccated thyroid might reduce the risk.

    (In a speech Barnes gave, he noted that cancer deaths in his patients treated with desiccated thyroid were about half the national average in the U.S.)

    Here is a short audio clip of Dr. Starr talking about this in a speech he gave at a 2007 Orthomolecular Conference. Read the entire article | Email this article

    He also notes that in his patients on desiccated thyroid, the incidence of cancer was about half that of the national average.
