Millions of asymptomatic women undergo breast screening annually because their doctors tell them to do so. Not only are these women's presumably healthy breasts being exposed to highly carcinogenic x-rays, but thousands have received a diagnosis of 'breast cancer' for entirely benign lesions that when left untreated would have caused no harm to them whatsoever.
The exiting healthcare system is based on treatments, even though 80% of illness is preventable. That means simply that individuals and their doctors are doing precious little to prevent disease, even though they could.
Failing to question the mutation theory of cancer is the underlying scientific reason the War on Cancer is not being won.
Should we be looking for disease in people who don't have any symptoms? A large new study indicates the answer is NO.
The root cause and potential cure for cancer is ignored by virtually all conventional oncologists despite an accumulating body of research that we already have the answer.
Cancer patients are suffering from devastating side effects of chemotherapy, when antioxidants may be the answer
Breast cancer is one of the major killers of women in the United States. Sadly, most women have no idea that simply not wearing a bra can have a major impact on the likelihood of developing breast cancer.
Everyone talks about inflammation, but what is it really?
A turmeric study published in Cancer Letters is paving the way for a revolution in the way that we both understand and treat cancer.
A 17-year old is being forced to receive chemotherapy that is guaranteed to cause her premature death. Will you stand up to save her?
Newly published research from the journal cancer indicates that conventional radiation-based cancer treatments may actually be driving the cancer into greater malignancy. Irradiated breast cancer cells were found to be 30 times more capable of forming new tumors than nonirradiated breast cancer cells.
A traditional food plant that has been used for thousands of years to improve health and well-being, is finally being validated by science. The results? It may be far superior to a chemotherapy agent with deadly side effects and dubious efficacy.
Today many cancer sufferers search for alternatives to conventional chemotherapy, such as thymoquinone, an active component of Nigella sativa or black seed oil.
Known for thousands of years as a powerful tonic for health, new research reveals that ginseng and other cancer stem cell killing plants may provide highly effective treatments for cancer.
Several recent international studies have illustrated that seaweeds and their extracts may have the capability of inhibiting and even treating cancer. Seaweed therapy may even outperform chemotherapy
There is a difference between someone who is unhealthy and someone who is sick. Part of that difference is the viewpoint, from which we look. When we look from a medical viewpoint - we tend to find illness. When we look from a healthicine view point - we are more able to see and understand healthiness and unhealthiness.
Medicine is defined, by Wikipedia, as 'the science and art of healing'.
The body heals.
Hippocrates - the father of medicine - said, "Let your food be your medicine, and let your medicine be your food." Medicines are a subset of foods, according to Hippocrates. I like that. What are medicines today? What are foods?
The human body's entire metabolic process depends on one critical factor - the pH of the plasma fluids. The pH scale is very simple. The lower the readings on the pH scale are acidic and the higher readings are more alkaline. Through homeostasis, the body maintains a healthy plasma pH of 7.4. Although the pH of the body will fluctuate with meals, exercise, stress, hormones and sleep, a healthy and balanced saliva pH should be between 7.0 to 7.5.
Conventional cancer treatments aren't working for women with breast cancer. Women are falling into a cancer industry machine only to be spit out at the other end, permanently damaged and still with no reasonable assurance of long-term survival.
Could a cure for advanced, chemotherapy and radiation resistant cancer have already been discovered as far back as 1967? Could this curative substance have been so close to us for all this time, as to be part of our own blood and a constituent of our own urine?
With chemotherapy resistant cancers on the rise, and conventional drug treatments often doing more harm than good, research on omega 3 fatty acids reversing multidrug resistance in colon cancer cells holds all the more promise.
What if chemotherapy actually helped to spread cancer? Many within the medical and research communities are becoming emboldened to speak out against outdated and failed healing modalities still in use today.
Cannabis contains a compound that may kill brain cancers that chemotherapy and radiation can't touch, so why isn't it being used today?
An important scientific review identifies 25 of the top foods and herbs which kill the cancer stem cells at the root cause of cancer malignancy.
