As per this report, Bread industry uses potassium bromate and potassium iodate, substances that are banned in many countries. And they are carcinogens. They can cause cancer!
Is bread staple food for Indians? No. Then why such craze?
We are damn slaves of western influence.
On top of it, we are damn greedy.
Besides, as our income increases, we become lazy. We hate cooking food for self and family.
Cancer and allied inflammations are inevitable.
Bread industry uses potassium bromate and potassium iodate, substances that are banned in many countries, but not in India; Indian regulators must act immediately and ban them
CSE’s new study tests bread sold in Delhi. Finds residues of potassium bromate/iodate in commonly consumed varieties
Use of potassium bromate – classified as a category 2B carcinogen (possibly carcinogenic to humans) – is banned in most countries. India still allows its use
Use of potassium iodate in making bread also banned by many nations because it can contribute to thyroid-related diseases
CSE recommends that FSSAI should ban use of potassium bromate and potassium iodate with immediate effect and prevent their routine exposure to Indian population.
Now, this is what I conversed with my friend when he responsed to me sharing this article.
Friend: “lo! These guys are saying that pizza bread has carcinogens ! Cancer! I eat daily but I am fit and fine. Even better than so called home-hood eaters in my office! Such a pathetic level scientific research we have”
Me: “🙂🙂 ”
It is impossible for material world to escape from impact of the काल or time. You and me, we all, change, constantly. There is nothing static. There is movement. Life us, our body cells too pass through finite life time.
Cellular clock or the cytochron (-Chron :: Used to make words related to time) governs the cellular expressions of growth, life and death. A carcinogen merely sets the clock in accelerating state. So by that reducing life time of the cell. Speeding up the internal clock leads to early end of the cell’s young age. Then comes two pre-destined fate states : Atrophied or Growth.
This premature growth is cancer. Its not just chemical in bread (as it is in news), but any input (physical or sensorial) that can shortens the cellular clock.
In short, carcinogens don’t induce cancer but merely promotes premature appearance of the cancerous state.
Who can reset the clock?

What’s in our bread?
CSE’s new study points to presence of possible cancer-causing chemical in bread
“It is not invasive and rather easy to do,” he said.
Over millions of years, gut bacteria have evolved into both good and bad types: The good ones have anti-inflammatory properties and the bad ones promote inflammation. The human body typically contains about 10 trillion bacterial cells, compared with only 1 trillion human cells.
Schiestl and his colleagues isolated a bacterium called Lactobacillus johnsonii 456, which is the most abundant of the beneficial bacteria, and which has some pretty useful applications outside of medicine. “Since it is a Lactobacillus strain, it makes excellent yogurt, kefir, kombucha and sauerkraut.”
In the UCLA study the bacterium reduced gene damage and significantly reduced inflammation — a critical goal because inflammation plays a key role in many diseases, including cancer, neurodegenerative diseases, heart disease, arthritis and lupus, and in the aging process.
Previous research led by Schiestl presented the first evidence of a relationship between intestinal microbiota and the onset of lymphoma, a cancer that originates in the immune system. The new study explains how this microbiota might delay the onset of cancer, and suggests that probiotic supplements could help keep cancer from forming.
For both studies, Schiestl and his team used mice that had mutations in a gene called ATM, which made them susceptible to a neurologic disorder called ataxia telangiectasia. The disorder, which affects 1 in 100,000 people, is associated with a high incidence of leukemia, lymphomas and other cancers.
The mice were divided into two groups — one that was given only anti-inflammatory bacteria and the other that received a mix of inflammatory and anti-inflammatory microbes that typically co-exist in the intestines.
In the Cancer Research paper, Schiestl and his team showed that in the mice with more of the beneficial bacteria, the lymphoma took significantly longer to form.
In the new study, the researchers analyzed the metabolites — molecules produced by the gut’s natural metabolic action — in the mice’s urine and feces. The scientists were surprised to find that the mice that were receiving only the beneficial microbiota produced metabolites that are known to prevent cancer. Those mice also had more efficient fat and oxidative metabolism, which the researchers believe might also lower the risk for cancer.
Among the other results, in the mice receiving only the good bacteria, lymphoma formed only half as quickly as it did in the other mice. In addition, mice with the good bacteria lived four times longer and had less DNA damage and inflammation.
Chemopreventive Metabolites Are Correlated with a Change in Intestinal Microbiota Measured in A-T Mice and Decreased Carcinogenesis
Intestinal microbiota play a significant role in nutrient metabolism, modulation of the immune system, obesity, and possibly in carcinogenesis, although the underlying mechanisms resulting in disease or impacts on longevity caused by different intestinal microbiota are mostly unknown. Herein we use isogenic Atm-deficient and wild type mice as models to interrogate changes in the metabolic profiles of urine and feces of these mice, which are differing in their intestinal microbiota. Using high resolution mass spectrometry approach we show that the composition of intestinal microbiota modulates specific metabolic perturbations resulting in a possible alleviation of a glycolytic phenotype. Metabolites including 3-methylbutyrolactone, kyneurenic acid and 3-methyladenine known to be onco-protective are elevated in Atm-deficient and wild type mice with restricted intestinal microbiota. Thus our approach has broad applicability to study the direct influence of gut microbiome on host metabolism and resultant phenotype. These results for the first time suggest a possible correlation of metabolic alterations and carcinogenesis, modulated by intestinal microbiota in A-T mice.
As they say, cancer is a disease of uncontrolled cell proliferation. Because the proliferative behavior of cancer cells is so aberrant, we might imagine that cancer cells invent entirely new ways of programming their growth and division-that the control circuitry within cancer cells is organized quite differently from that of normal, healthy cells.
But, any living cell carries with it the experiences of infinite experimentation by its ancestors. This rich set of learning, since birth, protects us from all abnormalities, all anti-national (anti-body) activities. And still, cancer happens. Frequently now. Imagine the depression blow, stress level that triggers cancer like self-centered autonomy in cell-community?
Let us think about citizens, society and individuals.
Corruption cancer is result of 2500 years of slavery and submission. In last 200 years, many man-made famines, artificially constructed, politically motivated social discrimination and many such oppressive tactics played as societal stress. Avg Indian common man is suffering from this stress. Hence corruption. Hence cancerous environment. As a solution, replenish them with new ideals. Re-emerge Vedic life-style by demonstration. As an individual, be audacious in performing your dharma at all level (as an individual, as a citizen, as a grihasthi, as an employee). Blue vision of ideal life should become visible in real lives. Help others to recall glorious experiences of infinite experimentation by its ancestors.
Gau-mutra is cancer medicine. It works on correcting protein signaling. Repairs damaged DNA. Helps cells to recall their real identity and forget uncontrolled proliferation.
Gau-mutra (Gau = Speech, mutra = outcome) i.e. Education always play important role in repairing cancerous society/community. Not the so called schools but Gurukuls. Selfless sages, reaching out to common men in remotest corner and sharing Vedic life by demonstration.
5 Chemicals in your food cause cancer, DNA damage, cell damage
Thank moronic farming!
At present, India is the largest producer of pesticides in Asia. The Indian Pesticide Industry with 82000+ MT of production. $3.8 billion in the year 2011 that produces even those pesticides which are banned in the developed countries. 12th for the usage of pesticides!
Only 2% to 3% pesticides used is utilized for the purpose it is designed, the rest persists in soil and water causing environmental pollution leading to toxicity.
Theorists, established science (academia) fanatics, armchair intellectuals – Do they even realize the havoc created by this?
No. Idiots are busy in researching how much less plants can consume so that their food is less toxic. 😀 Classic error of reductionist outlook. Looking things in compartments and missing the whole!
Make in India! 😀
A Working Group of 17 experts from 11 countries met at the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) on 3–10 March 2015 to review the available published scientific evidence and evaluate the carcinogenicity of five organophosphate insecticides and herbicides: diazinon, glyphosate, malathion, parathion, and tetrachlorvinphos.
The herbicide glyphosate and the insecticides malathion and diazinon were classified as probably carcinogenic to humans (Group 2A). The insecticides tetrachlorvinphos and parathion were classified as possibly carcinogenic to humans (Group 2B).
But still modern Indian ostrich scientists, their fanatic followers, govt of India, and all science lunatics, will wait for epidemic like situation to conclude that yes, these chemical farming is foolish idea! Remember Endosulfan?
Loonies will say: WHO is paid agent of CIA. France agency on cancer is paid agent 😀 😀
One such fanatic asked me: “What is the proof that your traditional farming way is safe?” 😀 😀 कुतर्की! I am alive is the proof! I see farmers dying around by your moron ways!
And also I was titled as greedy businessman who wants to sell organic so that I am against chemical farming! 😀 😀
God save humanity from science loonies! Pump this food in your kids’ veins and wait for disaster!
You might not cook with it, but you almost certainly eat or use palm oil.
Palm oil is the most widely consumed vegetable oil on the planet, and it is in about half of all packaged products sold in the supermarket. While palm oil is the most efficient source of vegetable oil, its rapid expansion threatens some of the planet’s most important and sensitive habitats.
Many products that use palm oil aren’t clearly labeled. Palm oil and its derivatives can appear under many names, including:
Do we realize the havoc we invite @ Indonesia by increasing demand of palm oil?
The establishment of vast monoculture oil plam plantations has a number of environmental impacts.
The two most serious are:
large-scale forest conversion
loss of critical habitat for endangered species
Other impacts include:
soil & water pollution
What can I do personally or at family level?
Reduce palm oil usage. Google and find out different use of palm oil.
This was about Environmental Cancer!
Recent study finds that it also helps spreading cancer in body!
GROUND-BREAKING EVIDENCE THAT CANCER SPREAD IS INCREASED BY A HIGH FAT DIET AS RESEARCHERS DISCOVER NEW CANCER-SPREADING PROTEIN
A study partly funded by UK charity Worldwide Cancer Research and headed by Professor Salvador Aznar Benitah, at the Institute for Research in Barcelona (IRB) have identified for the first time a specific protein called CD36 on cancer cells which have the ability to metastasize (spread). CD36, found in the cell membranes of tumour cells, is responsible for taking up fatty acids. This unique CD36 activity and dependence on fatty acids distinguishes metastasis-initiating cells from other tumour cells. The work was published today in the leading scientific journal Nature.
They went on to test a specific saturated fatty acid called palmitic acid – a major component of animal and vegetable fats and present at high levels in palm oil which is used in many house hold products from peanut butter and processed food to toothpaste. The researchers treated human oral tumours with palmitic acid for two days then injected them into mice fed a standard diet. The team observed that all the mice with CD36 developed cancer spread compared to only half when not treated with palmitic acid.
“In mice inoculated with human tumour cells, there appears to be a direct link between fat intake and an increase in metastatic potential through CD36. More studies are needed to unravel this intriguing relationship, above all because industrialised countries are registering an alarming increase in the consumption of saturated fats and sugar,” warns Professor Benitah. “Fat is necessary for the function of the body, but uncontrolled intake can have an effect on health, as already shown for some tumours such as colon cancer, and in metastasis, as we demonstrate here.”
Targeting metastasis-initiating cells through the fatty acid receptor CD36
The fact that the identity of the cells that initiate metastasis in most human cancers is unknown hampers the development of antimetastatic therapies. Here we describe a subpopulation of CD44bright cells in human oral carcinomas that do not overexpress mesenchymal genes, are slow-cycling, express high levels of the fatty acid receptor CD36 and lipid metabolism genes, and are unique in their ability to initiate metastasis. Palmitic acid or a high-fat diet specifically boosts the metastatic potential of CD36+ metastasis-initiating cells in a CD36-dependent manner. The use of neutralizing antibodies to block CD36 causes almost complete inhibition of metastasis in immunodeficient or immunocompetent orthotopic mouse models of human oral cancer, with no side effects. Clinically, the presence of CD36+ metastasis-initiating cells correlates with a poor prognosis for numerous types of carcinomas, and inhibition of CD36 also impairs metastasis, at least in human melanoma- and breast cancer-derived tumours. Together, our results indicate that metastasis-initiating cells particularly rely on dietary lipids to promote metastasis.
Last night, I was at dinner table @ wellknown garden restaurant of the city. All around, I see toddlers and kids sharing plates with parents. So painful to see children eating filthy food. 🙁
Do the parents know the consequences? Are they worth of being guardians of such innocent kids’ forthcoming psychological disaster in form of early puberty?
Early Puberty is indeed worse type of Epidemic we are inviting. This has become reality in Indian families too. I see many kids become physically mature too early. All thanks to chemical food they eat. Milk is no more pure. All dairy products are chemically altered. And needless to mention junk food.
Becoming mature early means less time for childhood. Less time for innocence. Less time for psychological maturity/growth.
Physical Overgrowth. Mental undergrowth. Dumb giant human bodies – easy to control. Just like farm animals. I am sorry for harsh words but that is what I foresee in next 10 years. 🙁
Take care. You are unknowingly gifting cancer and diabetes to your kids 18th birthday. 🙁
Psychological Consequences of early pubertal timing ?
➠ Eating Disorders
➠ poor academic performance
➠ Substance Use (Drugs addict)
➠ Sexual Activity (Porn addict)
➠ Delinquency (A tendency to be negligent and uncaring)
1) STOP JUNK FOOD/OUTSIDE FOOD MADNESS NOW. This includes chocolates and biscuits.
2) Find raw desi gau milk (A2 milk).Stop dairy products.
3) Connect with organic farmers in vicinity and tie up with them for your seasonal grains & vegetables
4) Eat only seasonal fruits. For example, watermelon in this season is surely chemically preserved/stored. Worth ignoring.
Gender-bending chemicals ‘triggering early puberty in girls and putting them at risk of diabetes and cancer’
Gender-bending chemicals used in food cans, shower curtains and toys may be triggering early puberty in girls – and putting them at greater risk of cancer and diabetes, researchers say.
A study has found evidence that three classes of hormone-mimicking chemicals disrupt the bodies of girls approaching adolescence.
Although the association is ‘weak’, the scientists say it raises serious questions about the causes of early puberty.
The average age of puberty in girls – ten years and three months – has fallen by more than a year in a single generation.
Doctors say improved diet and higher body weights of children is mostly to blame.
But some researchers believe environmental chemicals that mimic the sex hormone oestrogen could also be a factor.
The latest study found that exposure to three chemical classes – phthalates, phenols and phytoestrogens – can ‘disrupt the timing of pubertal development’ in young girls.
Phthalates are banned in cosmetics in Europe, but are allowed in the U.S.
Phenols include the widely used chemical Bisphenol A – which is used in the lining of food cans and shatter-proof baby bottles. Phytoestrogens are naturally occurring chemicals found in soya, bread, cereals and nuts.
I hope we understand this. Right age pregnancy followed by at least 6 months feeding is not only critical for child but equally critical for mother’s health.
A large international study shows that breastfeeding is associated with a lower risk of developing an aggressive form of breast cancer called hormone-receptor negative. This new combined evidence shows the risk was reduced by up to 20% in women who breastfed.
All working mothers : Work and career can wait for another year, your health cannot. Take care. If required, take Paid Time Offs or Leaves without pay. It is not worth to ignore this duty with good health as return.
Breastfeeding and breast cancer risk by receptor status—a systematic review and meta-analysis
Background Breastfeeding is inversely associated with overall risk of breast cancer. This association may differ in breast cancer subtypes defined by receptor status, as they may reflect different mechanisms of carcinogenesis. We conducted a systematic review and meta-analysis of case–control and prospective cohort studies to investigate the association between breastfeeding and breast cancer by estrogen receptor (ER), progesterone receptor (PR), and human epidermal growth factor receptor 2 (HER2) status.
Design We searched the PubMed and Scopus databases and bibliographies of pertinent articles to identify relevant articles and used random-effects models to calculate summary odds ratios (ORs) and 95% confidence intervals (CIs).
Results This meta-analysis represents 27 distinct studies (8 cohort and 19 case–control), with a total of 36 881 breast cancer cases. Among parous women, the risk estimates for the association between ever (versus never) breastfeeding and the breast cancers negative for both ER and PR were similar in three cohort and three case–control studies when results were adjusted for several factors, including the number of full-term pregnancies (combined OR 0.90; 95% CI 0.82–0.99), with little heterogeneity and no indication of publication bias. In a subset of three adjusted studies that included ER, PR, and HER2 status, ever breastfeeding showed a stronger inverse association with triple-negative breast cancer (OR 0.78; 95% CI 0.66–0.91) among parous women. Overall, cohort studies showed no significant association between breastfeeding and ER+/PR+ or ER+ and/or PR+ breast cancers, although one and two studies (out of four and seven studies, respectively) showed an inverse association.
Conclusions This meta-analysis showed a protective effect of ever breastfeeding against hormone receptor-negative breast cancers, which are more common in younger women and generally have a poorer prognosis than other subtypes of breast cancer. The association between breastfeeding and receptor-positive breast cancers needs more investigation.
Autophagy is news for Nobel prize and suddenly there is world-focus on this word! This particular phenomenon is not new for us in India. This is well-understood concept in Ayurveda. Ojovisramsa is impairment in distribution of Ojas. Ojas is a immunological factor.
“Ginger-derived compound 6-shogaol against breast cancer cells both in monolayer and in cancer-stem cell-like spheroid culture.”
This post is about Ginger triggered Autophagy!
Ginger truly does top the list of effective natural home remedies.
Being used throughout history by different cultures around the world, ginger harnesses an incredible healing power proven for a host of ailments. The spice is packed with essential nutrients and rejuvenating compounds.
While ginger has been shown to help countless ‘minor’ problems such as an upset stomach, amazingly the health benefits of ginger also include combating cancer more effectively than pharmaceutical cancer drugs.
इमां खनाम्योषधिं वीरुधं बलवत्तमाम् । ऋग्वेद: सूक्तं १०.१४५
“What I dig is very potent herb to increase strength.”
Excuse my faulty translation but there are interesting dots to connect.
1) शारीरिक & प्राणिक बल are necessary to earn पुरुषार्थ (धर्म,अर्थ,काम,मोक्ष) and perform our duties towards the Universe with least errors.
2) In my understanding, when grown in soil nurtured and kindled with Prana(प्राण) by gobar, mutra and butter milk of Desi Gau, Vegetables from कंद वर्ग (the ones that we dig) grows in the epicenter of rich Pranic environment. And this Prana is not Raw Prana like other vegetables and fruits get from the Sun by photosynthesis and external environment. It is digested Prana or churned prana. Churning prana makes its potency manifold. So they are full of प्राणिक बल. Since they are the roots, they have most possible essence of all physical nutrients.
3) कंद वर्ग’s vegetables is main food for ऋषि पञ्चमी. That means, to nurture the ऋषि अंश settled at our subtle senses can realize their full potential with the help of कंद वर्ग.
4) In most cases, you dig them only when they plant completes its life cycle. For example, I dig my turmeric only when all its leaves are dried and gone.
Keep an eye on seasonal कंद वर्ग vegetables and include them in your meals. Of course, nothing worth without Gau mata.

6-Shogaol Inhibits Breast Cancer Cells and Stem Cell-Like Spheroids by Modulation of Notch Signaling Pathway and Induction of Autophagic Cell Death
Cancer stem cells (CSCs) pose a serious obstacle to cancer therapy as they can be responsible for poor prognosis and tumour relapse. In this study, we have investigated inhibitory activity of the ginger-derived compound 6-shogaol against breast cancer cells both in monolayer and in cancer-stem cell-like spheroid culture. The spheroids were generated from adherent breast cancer cells. 6-shogaol was effective in killing both breast cancer monolayer cells and spheroids at doses that were not toxic to noncancerous cells. The percentages of CD44+CD24–/low cells and the secondary sphere content were reduced drastically upon treatment with 6-shogaol confirming its action on CSCs. Treatment with 6-shogaol caused cytoplasmic vacuole formation and cleavage of microtubule associated protein Light Chain3 (LC3) in both monolayer and spheroid culture indicating that it induced autophagy. Kinetic analysis of the LC3 expression and a combination treatment with chloroquine revealed that the autophagic flux instigated cell death in 6-shogaol treated breast cancer cells in contrast to the autophagy inhibitor chloroquine. Furthermore, 6-shogaol-induced cell death got suppressed in the presence of chloroquine and a very low level of apoptosis was exhibited even after prolonged treatment of the compound, suggesting that autophagy is the major mode of cell death induced by 6-shogaol in breast cancer cells. 6-shogaol reduced the expression levels of Cleaved Notch1 and its target proteins Hes1 and Cyclin D1 in spheroids, and the reduction was further pronounced in the presence of a γ-secretase inhibitor. Secondary sphere formation in the presence of the inhibitor was also further reduced by 6-shogaol. Together, these results indicate that the inhibitory action of 6-shogaol on spheroid growth and sustainability is conferred through γ-secretase mediated down-regulation of Notch signaling. The efficacy of 6-shogaol in monolayer and cancer stem cell-like spheroids raise hope for its therapeutic benefit in breast cancer treatment.
Zerumbone, a ginger sesquiterpene, induces apoptosis and autophagy in human hormone-refractory prostate cancers through tubulin binding and crosstalk between endoplasmic reticulum stress and mitochondrial insult.
Zerumbone, a natural monocyclic sesquiterpene, is the main component of the tropical plant Zingiber zerumbet Smith. Zerumbone induced antiproliferative and apoptotic effects against PC-3 and DU-145, two human hormone-refractory prostate cancer (HRPC) cell lines. Zerumbone inhibited microtubule assembly and induced an increase of MPM-2 expression (specific recognition of mitotic proteins). It also caused an increase of phosphorylation of Bcl-2 and Bcl-xL, two key events in tubulin-binding effect, indicating tubulin-binding capability and mitotic arrest to zerumbone action. Furthermore, zerumbone induced several cellular effects distinct from tubulin-binding properties. First, zerumbone significantly increased, while paclitaxel (as a tubulin-binding control) decreased, Mcl-1 protein expression. Second, paclitaxel but not zerumbone induced Cdk1 activity. Third, zerumbone other than paclitaxel induced Cdc25C downregulation. The data suggest that, in addition to targeting tubulin/microtubule, zerumbone may act on other targets for signaling transduction. Zerumbone induced mitochondrial damage and endoplasmic reticulum (ER) stress as evidenced by the loss of mitochondrial membrane potential and upregulation of GRP-78 and CHOP/GADD153 expression. Zerumbone induced an increase of intracellular Ca(2+) levels, a crosstalk marker between ER stress and mitochondrial insult, associated with the formation of active calpain I fragment. It induced apoptosis through a caspase-dependent way and caused autophagy as evidenced by dramatic LC3-II formation. In summary, the data suggest that zerumbone is a multiple targeting compound that inhibits tubulin assembly and induces a crosstalk between ER stress and mitochondrial insult, leading to apoptosis and autophagy in HRPCs.
If I say “Omega-3 Fatty Acids cures cancer”, our so called rational and educated mind will appreciate feat of the modern science and start googling about ‘Source for Omega-3″ 😀.
But if I say that “Ghee Prepared using manual churning method from the ethically procured milk of Desi Gau mata” can cure any disease, same arrogant educated mind will either make fun of the fact or ignore it as bigoted view! 😀
Tumors are called ‘Arbuda’ in Ayurveda. Desi Gau mata’s milk, ghee, mutra and gobar is primary treatment for any form of ‘Arbuda’. We don’t really need complex “Omega-3 Fatty Acids” complex science. Mother helps to cure is a common sense for those who live in the laps of the nature.
Take that! Respect your roots! Invest time and wealth in protecting Desi Gau. Have her prasad as medicine, be healthy forever (Y).
Thanks to Modern Medicine for fear mongering about ghee and modern dairy for looting wealth from villages, society’s intake of ghee is reduced drastically in past 30 years. This is the same period, cancer and heart cases have increased.
How exactly it works?
Gobar represents and is full of Apana Prana. It helps body to eliminate toxic waste/junk DNAs and cleanse Prana-flows.
Urine/Mutra is Ganga Jal. It has quality to balance tridosha. So further damage is paused.
Ghee is full of omega-3. As per below research, it improves quality and treatment of cancer patients. It actually helps in rejuvenation.
Omega-3 Fatty Acids May Help Improve Treatment and Quality of Life in Cancer Patients
Adding omega-3 fatty acids to anti-tumor medications may improve treatment response and quality of life for cancer patients according to a new study by researchers at the University Hospitals of Leicester in the United Kingdom.
The study, published today in the OnlineFirst version of the Journal of Parenteral and Enteral Nutrition (JPEN), the research journal of the American Society for Parenteral and Enteral Nutrition (A.S.P.E.N.), examined 50 patients with advanced pancreatic cancer.
Patients were given 1,000 mg of gemcitabine weekly followed by up to 100 g of omega-3 rich lipid emulsion for three weeks followed by a rest week. This was continued for up to six cycles, progression, unacceptable toxicity, patient request, or death.
The study found evidence of activity in response and disease stabilization rates, reduction in liver metastasis volume, and improved quality of life scores in this group of patients.
While this is the first study to use omega-3 fatty acids with a chemotherapy agent in a cancer setting, the researchers believe the results are encouraging enough to warrant further investigation in a randomized phase III trial.
Docosahexaenoic acid content is significantly higher in ghrita prepared by traditional Ayurvedic method
Ghee (clarified butter) also known as ghrita, has been utilized for thousands of years in Ayurveda. Ghee is mostly prepared by traditional method in Indian households or by direct cream method at industry level. Ayurvedic classics mention that ghrita made from cow milk is superior. However, there is no scientific comparison available on preparation methods and essential fatty acids content of ghrita.
To investigate fatty acid composition of ghrita prepared by traditional/Ayurvedic method and commercial method (direct cream method).
Materials and Methods:
Fatty Acid Methyl Esters (FAME) extracted from ghrita samples were analysed on Gas Chromatography (GC) Shimadzu B using capillary column BPX70 (0.32 mm*60 m, ID of 0.25 mm). The fatty acids in the samples were identified by comparing peaks with the external standard 68A (Nu-Chek-Prep, Inc.USA). Significant differences between the experimental groups were assessed by analysis of variance.
Distribution of fatty acids was compared in ghrita samples prepared by traditional method and direct cream method which is commercially used. Saturated fatty acids were predominant in both the groups. Mono unsaturated fatty acids and poly unsaturated fatty acids were in the range of 17-18% and 3-6% respectively. DHA content was significantly higher in ghee prepared by traditional method using curd starter fermentation.
The findings suggested that ghrita prepared by traditional ayurvedic methods contains higher amount of DHA; Omega-3 long-chain polyunsaturated fatty acids, which is a major component of retinal and brain tissues and remains important in prevention of various diseases.
Cancer cell? What is it? There is nothing like cancer cell. Body cells are your Annamaya footprints. Your own identity. There is nothing called cancer cell. Cancer cells – they are nothing but your normal body cells behaving cancerously.
Cancer is a behavior. Uncontrolled behavior to rebel against the self. Rebel because you being Pati (Protector) of the Ayodhya (Body) is not performing duties well.
Cancer can be treated. Suppressing cancer symptoms is not cancer treatment. Revive cellular confidence. Be happy. Be cheerful. Be more social. Live in the lap of mother nature.
Cricket is a societal cancer. So even if you are a great person but still associated with Cricket, you are responsible for cancer. I don’t see such persons with high respect.
I am long distance runner and despite crossing 30, I still can beat teen athletes in 100 m sprints. Occasionally, I play football. In my teen age, I played cricket too.
My yardstick to evaluate Cricket as cancer is because of my understanding of word क्रीडा.
Cricket is light years far to fit in word ‘क्रीडा’ (Cricket being hopelessly laggard entertainment cannot fit in my understanding of क्रीडा ) but it is very close to word ‘कीड़ा’ (insects – mafias, corrupts, criminals chewing this Nation) of the society. As a leader, as a political party with difference, as a youngster, I would never ever embrace it.
And someone doing it, it is fate of the Nation, party and an individual. God bless.
