Exercise, future anticancer therapy?

At age 70, Alfred Roberts plays hockey twice a week. Nothing special, right? Except that for three years he has had advanced prostate cancer, which has spread to his bones. “I’ve always been active. Hockey keeps me in shape and keeps my mind off things. I’ve got friends that have played until age 80, and my goal is to beat them!” said the veteran stick handler.

Several studies have demonstrated the benefits of exercise to improve the quality of life of people with cancer. But Dr. Fred Saad, urologist-oncologist and researcher at the University of Montreal Hospital Research Centre (CRCHUM), goes further. He believes that physical exercise has a direct effect on cancer, as effective as drugs, for treating patients with prostate cancer, even in advanced stages of the disease.

“We will study exercise as if it were a drug added to standard treatments. All patients will be treated within the latest scientific knowledge for this type of cancer. They will continue to follow their therapies and take their medications. But half of the patients will receive psychosocial support with general recommendations on physical exercise. The other half will also follow a high intensity exercise program,” he explained.

The exercise medicine expert Professor Robert Newton has designed a specific strength and cardiovascular training program for patients in the “exercise” group. “They will have an hour of aerobic and resistance training three times a week. An exercise specialist will supervise them for the first 12 months, and then they will continue without direct supervision. We will evaluate quality of life, appetite, and treatment tolerance in relation to their improved physical condition,” said Professor Newton, who is co-director of the Edith Cowan University, Exercise Medicine Research Institute.

Blood samples and muscle biopsies will help scientists better understand the benefits of exercise. “People with cancer develop all sorts of complications related to metastases, such as fractures or severe pain. It is hoped that exercise will strengthen muscles and bones,” said Dr. Saad.

The Pill Generation’s boomeranged Karma : Cancer

Cancer

I am not sharing this to scare you or make you feel guilty. When our life depends on our environment and our environment is hijacked by perception managers (they are hidden monsters, everywhere! From school to church/temple to govt! Everywhere!) , this is bound to happen. From govt advertisement to popular Bollywood entertainment to social-media managers, everyone is trying to convince you one thing:

“Life is short and for fun! So take a pill and enjoy!!”
“अनचाहे गर्भसे मुक्ति! – True form of freedom! My choice! ”

Any engineering experiment on body is karma. Karma acts like boomerang. Don’t repent if you taken the pills in past. Do प्रायश्चित! (Now, don’t be so arrogant & pseudo atheist and tell me that you don’t believe in it and all! Suggesting you one of the powerful tool to cleanse mental and physical wrong-doing and help body in healing! Even atheist need प्रायश्चित as they too share them biology and psychology of human mind! 😉 🙂 )

At least, let us save our next generation. Educate them in right sense. Let them know the real picture and help them realize that this body is not machine or gadgets and it is not that simple to shut-down progeny generation as you switch off the light or fan!

Contemporary Hormonal Contraception and the Risk of Breast Cancer

BACKGROUND

Little is known about whether contemporary hormonal contraception is associated with an increased risk of breast cancer.

RESULTS

Among 1.8 million women who were followed on average for 10.9 years (a total of 19.6 million person-years), 11,517 cases of breast cancer occurred. As compared with women who had never used hormonal contraception, the relative risk of breast cancer among all current and recent users of hormonal contraception was 1.20 (95% confidence interval [CI], 1.14 to 1.26). This risk increased from 1.09 (95% CI, 0.96 to 1.23) with less than 1 year of use to 1.38 (95% CI, 1.26 to 1.51) with more than 10 years of use (P=0.002). After discontinuation of hormonal contraception, the risk of breast cancer was still higher among the women who had used hormonal contraceptives for 5 years or more than among women who had not used hormonal contraceptives. Risk estimates associated with current or recent use of various oral combination (estrogen–progestin) contraceptives varied between 1.0 and 1.6. Women who currently or recently used the progestin-only intrauterine system also had a higher risk of breast cancer than women who had never used hormonal contraceptives (relative risk, 1.21; 95% CI, 1.11 to 1.33). The overall absolute increase in breast cancers diagnosed among current and recent users of any hormonal contraceptive was 13 (95% CI, 10 to 16) per 100,000 person-years, or approximately 1 extra breast cancer for every 7690 women using hormonal contraception for 1 year.

CONCLUSIONS

The risk of breast cancer was higher among women who currently or recently used contemporary hormonal contraceptives than among women who had never used hormonal contraceptives, and this risk increased with longer durations of use; however, absolute increases in risk were small.

Cancer is now industry : Beware of free check-up camps

Since last two weeks, I see all pink posters everywhere. I thought about some new female cosmetics products launch. But when I read the content, it was actually selling sickness campaign.

In Industry, profit depends upon the customer base. More customers, more profit.

Cancer is now industry. I recently read signboards across the city for free breast cancer screening. In name of charity, detect more future patients. 🙁

The breast cancer industry is now run by corporations that profit from women who receive breast cancer treatments. Free screening is the beginning.

“Breast cancer has been transformed into a market-driven industry. It has become more about making money for corporate sponsors than funding innovative ways to treat breast cancer.” – Health Studies researcher Samantha King, author of Pink Ribbons Inc.

The emphasis on breast cancer “screening,” and the circus of holding breast cancer awareness months is, of course, all about recruiting more women into a system of treatment that generates profits for drug companies.

Researchers at the Nordic Cochrane Center in Denmark studied 500,000 women to determine the results of breast cancer screening programs. They found that for every one woman helped by breast cancer screening, ten were harmed through false diagnosis or unnecessary treatments that devastated their health.

Beware. Do not become pharma company trap.

There are ways to prevent cancer. Try not to succumb to fear mongering.

भूमि वर्ण (Soil Varna) and Cancer : A study links soil metals with cancer mortality

tumblr_makyzcofq71rgyed6o1_1280

I have written in past, with reference to Nighantu that , we can’t escape from Varna system. Whether you accept or not, we are groomed and shaped by our local environment. Our environment also has varna and its geochemical composition, prana movement (wind directions) do make difference in our life.

The geochemical composition of the soil, especially its metals, could be influencing the spatial distribution and mortality patterns of cancer

When you grow up and migrate to distant land, there are chances that your birth-nature (Mula Prakriti) may observe changes. Sometimes, these changes are stressful (if you fail to cope up with sudden changes). Cancer is end-result.

 

 

 

Old notes:

Varna System, Geology ,Farming & Your Food, Your health

GEOGRAPHY and Cognitive Development link

Now, let us come to one more interesting study. This study talks about correlation between soil type, heavy metals found in it and type of cancer cases in that region.

Spanish epidemiologists and geologists have found associations between soil and cancer.

Type of Cancer Metal heavy in Soil
 esophageal  lead
 lung  copper
 brain  arsenic
 bladder  cadmium

These statistical links do not indicate that there is a cause-effect relationship between soil type and cancer, but they suggest that the influence of metals from the earth’s surface on the geographical distribution of tumors should be analyzed.

Go back to old notes shared about and contemplate on Soil Varna system.

All these heavy metals find their way to our body via food and water. That is where importance of affordable clean drinking water and cow-based agriculture play significant role. When we eat chemically grown food , there are high chances that we will accumulate heavy metals in body, which may lead to cancer.

Sometimes, it is not even actual metal consumption but pranic footprint of it, passed via food and water as transport , work against body’s prana, consumes and invite diabetes to cancer. To counter negative prana, we need life-enriching prana. There is only one source in food : All food prepared by  churning. Ghee takes the lead, followed by fermented food as per region. Microbes know how to digest metals. They won’t allow heavy metals to pass into blood stream. They are Ganapati. They remove digestive difficulties. Think about it.

A study links soil metals with cancer mortality

“We have also detected that the highest of cadmium, lead, zinc, manganese and copper concentrations in the soil are statistically associated with a higher mortality due to cancers of the digestive system in men,” explains Pablo Fernández, ISCIII researcher and co-author of the paper, “and in the case of women, a higher mortality from brain cancer in those areas with more cadmium content”.

“This research suggests that the geochemical composition of the soil, especially its metals, could be influencing the spatial distribution and mortality patterns of cancer in Spain, regardless of the socio-demographic context,” says Fernández, who highlights “the great contribution of this work to environmental epidemiology and public health in general”.

AminoAcids

I shared it before. It is game of Prana. Amino Acids with their unique shape promoting feature, triggers many biological events, including cancer.

Cutting out certain amino acids – the building blocks of proteins – from the diet of mice slows tumour growth and prolongs survival, according to new research* published in Nature.

Researchers at the Cancer Research UK Beatson Institute and the University of Glasgow found that removing two non-essential amino acids – serine and glycine – from the diet of mice slowed the development of lymphoma and intestinal cancer.

Serine?

Yeah! the meat, beef, dairy products like cheese etc.
And so called vegan diet – almonds, asparagus, chickpea, cow pea, flax-seed, lentils, sesame seed, walnut and soy beans.

glycine ?

Again meat!! Glycine is a conditional/non-essential amino acid found in bone broth, meat, poultry, eggs, dairy products and certain beans and veggies.


Research


Amino acids in diet could be key to starving cancer

http://www.medicilon.com/201742415371-2/

Cancer cells have an unnatural appetite for certain amino acids—nonessential amino acids that healthy cells produce themselves, usually in amounts sufficient for ordinary metabolism. If cancer cells are denied these amino acids, they are weakened. They grow and proliferate more slowly. It is possible, moreover, that they could be more vulnerable to conventional cancer treatments, such as chemotherapy and radiotherapy.

Gut Bacteria (Pranic Footprint-प्राणमय कोष) controls speed of tumor growth

I have shared it many times that the ultimate way of cancer prevention is to restore Prana in body. It is lack of prana/blockage of Nadi, that causes cancer.

Gut Bacteria, like any other body organ, is manifestation of Prana. And they being non-organ self of body, play critical role in well-being of body organs.

We can prevent cancer easily. Even cancer management is also less painful compare to modern chemo and radiation torture.

Three fundamental source of Prana for restoration

  1. Raw Prana from the Sun
  2. Churned Prana from Desi cow’s milk and ghee
  3. Food grown on the soil replenished by raw and churned prana (Sun light, cow dung, urine, milk, butter milk)

Gut Bacteria Determine Speed of Tumor Growth in Pancreatic Cancer

https://nyulangone.org/press-releases/gut-bacteria-determine-speed-of-tumor-growth-in-pancreatic-cancer

The population of bacteria in the pancreas increases more than a thousand fold in patients with pancreatic cancer, and becomes dominated by species that prevent the immune system from attacking tumor cells.

These are the findings of a study conducted in mice and in patients with pancreatic ductal adenocarcinoma (PDA), a form of cancer that is usually fatal within two years. Led by researchers at NYU School of Medicine, Perlmutter Cancer Center, and NYU College of Dentistry, the study published online March 22 in Cancer Discovery, a journal of the American Association for Cancer Research (AACR).

Specifically, the study found that removing bacteria from the gut and pancreas by treating mice with antibiotics slowed cancer growth and reprogrammed immune cells to again “take notice” of cancer cells. Oral antibiotics also increased roughly threefold the efficacy of checkpoint inhibitors, a form of immunotherapy that had previously failed in pancreatic cancer clinical trials, to bring about a strong anti-tumor shift in immunity.

Experiments found that in patients with PDA, pathogenic gut bacteria migrate to the pancreas through the pancreatic duct, a tube that normally drains digestive juices from the pancreas into the intestines. Once in the pancreas, this abnormal bacterial mix (microbiome) gives off cellular components that shut down the immune system to promote cancer growth, say the authors.

I am not doctor but based on study and observation, I once told to my friends group that viral infections are indicators of healthy immune system. Don’t avoid them. Just take care of soothing and fast recovery.
 
Cancer is a stage indicating death. The last bastion for death to take over this body. Even dead-body flourishes like cancer after death. Difference between cancer and death is, presence of life/prana with body.

Zika virus kills brain cancer stem cells

Virus potentially could be used to treat deadly disease

While Zika virus causes devastating damage to the brains of developing fetuses, it one day may be an effective treatment for glioblastoma, a deadly form of brain cancer. New research from Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis and the University of California San Diego School of Medicine shows that the virus kills brain cancer stem cells, the kind of cells most resistant to standard treatments.

The findings suggest that the lethal power of the virus – known for infecting and killing cells in the brains of fetuses, causing babies to be born with tiny, misshapen heads – could be directed at malignant cells in the brain. Doing so potentially could improve people’s chances against a brain cancer – glioblastoma – that is most often fatal within a year of diagnosis.

Onion and Cancer Prevention

Some communities in India do not eat onion and garlic at all (For spiritual reasons and to avoid TAMAS nature and remain sattvik). Imagine what they miss.

As per research, onions work for preventing and curing cancer.

Have you ever seen farm labor or construction labor inflicted by cancer?

No. They have onion in diet and they do hard-work 🙂.

“As per Ayurveda, who does physical work has to eat onion. if our work profile does not allow us to do physical work then TAMAS will increase if eaten onion.” – Dhruv Dave

Modern science experiments don’t talk about conditions 🙂.

Summer is approaching. Eat onions. Since many of us do not do hard work, it is must for us to do exercise so that onion can work.

Only eating onions won’t work.

Inhibitory effects of onion (Allium cepa L.) extract on proliferation of cancer cells and adipocytes via inhibiting fatty acid synthase.

Onion Kills 85% of Breast Cancer Cells in Vitro: An extract of onions was shown to kill up to 85% of aggressive, triple-negative breast cancer cells in vitro in this study. It also dramatically slowed the cancer cell’s growth by 84%, by shutting down their ability to manufacture fatty acids. But can onions reduce breast cancer risk in women? Yes, according to a study out of Italy where women consuming at least one serving of onions daily saw a 25% reduction in breast cancer risk (one serving = 3 ounces or 80 grams). That same dosage also reduced ovarian cancer risk by 73%. Why are onions so powerful? They contain thiosulfinates (sulfur-based compounds which potently inhibit cancer) and they are also a uniquely concentrated source of healthy 4-Oxo-flavonoids: only kale, black currants and the herb sage deliver as much per ounce! Onions may have further health benefits as well: they have lowered blood sugar in diabetic patients in one study, and in a recent clinical trial, overweight women eating 50-60 grams daily of raw red onion actually saw their cholesterol levels drop significantly. Onions are low in calories, are easy to include in a healthy diet in salads, soups, omelettes, sandwiches, even smoothies. Note: just as raw garlic is better than cooked for fighting cancer, raw onion is likely to offer the most benefit (both are allium vegetables).

Prolonged Work-Stress and Cancer

Stress

Many friends ask me, why Indians used to live short life despite having rich Ayurvedic knowledge?

“Short life span was not pan-India observation. It was limited to British ruled area. And it is because Indians under British lived slave’s life. Slaves live under stress. Stress accelerates aging. Stress kills. Many remote villages unaffected by British rule, did have long life span as it is observed now”

👆 Work stress = Cancer or TB any chronic disease

Good Morning. Read it. Slow down. Our mindless race to achieve something (which many don’t realize) virtual (career, growth, money) beyond our capacity induces stress. This does not mean we don’t pursue our goals. It only mean, pursue without generating stress on body and mind. Stress , as I shared with friends often, is root cause of inflammation and inflammation a root cause of cancer. This research proves my hypothesis about stress.

Prolonged exposure to work-related stress thought to be related to some cancers

For men, prolonged exposure to work-related stress has been linked to an increased likelihood of lung, colon, rectal, and stomach cancer and non-Hodgkin lymphoma. The findings are among the results obtained by researchers at INRS and Université de Montréal who conducted the first study to assess the link between cancer and work-related stress perceived by men throughout their working life. The research results were recently published in Preventive Medicine.
On average, the study participants had held four jobs, with some holding up to a dozen or more during their working lifetime. Significant links to five of the eleven cancers considered in the study were revealed. These links were observed in men who had been exposed to 15 to 30 years of work-related stress, and in some cases, more than 30 years. A link between work-related stress and cancer was not found in participants who had held stressful jobs for less than 15 years.
The most stressful jobs included firefighter, industrial engineer, aerospace engineer, mechanic foreman, and vehicle and railway-equipment repair worker. For the same individual, stress varied depending on the job held. Researchers were able to document changes in perceived work-related stress.
The study also shows that perceived stress is not limited to high work load and time constraints. Customer service, sales commissions, responsibilities, the participant’s anxious temperament, job insecurity, financial problems, challenging or dangerous work conditions, employee supervision, interpersonal conflict, and a difficult commute were all sources of stress listed by the participants.
“One of the biggest flaws in previous cancer studies is that none of them assessed work-related stress over a full working lifetime, making it impossible to determine how the duration of exposure to work-related stress affects cancer development. Our study shows the importance of measuring stress at different points in an individual’s working life,” explain the authors of the study.
The results obtained raise the question of whether chronic psychological stress should be viewed as a public health issue. But these results are as yet unsubstantiated because they are based on a summary assessment of work-related stress for a given job. There is now a need for epidemiological studies based on reliable stress measurements, repeated over time and that take all sources of stress into account.

With these special bacteria, a broccoli a day can keep the cancer doctor away

Colorectal cancer is one of the most common cancers in the world, especially the developed world. Although the 5-year survival rates for earlier stages of this cancer are relatively good, at later stages survival goes down and the risk of cancer recurrence goes up considerably.

At the heart of this cancer-targeting system is an engineered form of E. coli Nissle, a harmless type of bacteria found in the gut. Using genetic techniques, the team engineered the bacteria into a probiotic that attached to the surface of colorectal cancer cells and secreted an enzyme to convert a substance found in cruciferous vegetables (like broccoli) into a potent anticancer agent. The idea was for the cancer cells in the vicinity to take up this anticancer agent and be killed. Normal cells cannot do this conversion, nor are they affected by the toxin, thus the system should be targeted only to colorectal cancer cells.

True enough, the mixture of engineered probiotics with a broccoli extract or water containing the dietary substance killed more than 95% of colorectal cancer cells in a dish. Moreover, the mixture had no effect on cells from other types of cancer such as breast and stomach cancer. Strikingly, the probiotics-veggie combination reduced tumour numbers by 75% in mice with colorectal cancer. Also, the tumours that were detected in these mice were 3 times smaller than those in control mice which were not fed with the mixture.

Dietary Sulforaphane in Cancer Chemoprevention: The Role of Epigenetic Regulation and HDAC Inhibition

https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC4432495/

Significance: Sulforaphane, produced by the hydrolytic conversion of glucoraphanin after ingestion of cruciferous vegetables, particularly broccoli and broccoli sprouts, has been extensively studied due to its apparent health-promoting properties in disease and limited toxicity in normal tissue. Recent Studies: Recent identification of a sub-population of tumor cells with stem cell-like self-renewal capacity that may be responsible for relapse, metastasis, and resistance, as a potential target of the dietary compound, may be an important aspect of sulforaphane chemoprevention. Evidence also suggests that sulforaphane may target the epigenetic alterations observed in specific cancers, reversing aberrant changes in gene transcription through mechanisms of histone deacetylase inhibition, global demethylation, and microRNA modulation. Critical Issues: In this review, we discuss the biochemical and biological properties of sulforaphane with a particular emphasis on the anticancer properties of the dietary compound. Sulforaphane possesses the capacity to intervene in multistage carcinogenesis through the modulation and/or regulation of important cellular mechanisms. The inhibition of phase I enzymes that are responsible for the activation of pro-carcinogens, and the induction of phase II enzymes that are critical in mutagen elimination are well-characterized chemopreventive properties. Furthermore, sulforaphane mediates a number of anticancer pathways, including the activation of apoptosis, induction of cell cycle arrest, and inhibition of NFκB. Future Directions: Further characterization of the chemopreventive properties of sulforaphane and its capacity to be selectively toxic to malignant cells are warranted to potentially establish the clinical utility of the dietary compound as an anti-cancer compound alone, and in combination with clinically relevant therapeutic and management strategies.
