Cancer Research News & Studies / The #1 Cause Of Cancer
« Last post by danialthomas on July 04, 2020, 04:06:14 pm »
Do you know the #1 cause of cancer? Hint: It is not poor diet, stress, family history, or environmental toxins. Then what is it? It is age.

Increasing age is the most significant risk factor for cancer. A growing body of evidence supports the hypothesis that by slowing the aging process, you may delay or prevent the onset or recurrence of cancer and other chronic disease. Slowing aging centers around changes in diet and lifestyle to improve mitochondrial function; promote effective immunity; increase microcirculation and tissue oxygenation; promote tissue alkalinity; enhance detoxification; improve gut health; reduce oxidative stress, inflammation, and exposure to environmental toxins; and promote sound sleep, physical fitness, and good mental health. Together, this helps create a more tumor-resistant environment in the body.

So why is increasing age is the most significant risk factor for cancer? Besides immune decline, aging enables the emergence of tumors through the onset of cell-cycle arrest (senescence) of aging fibroblasts, which makes them prone to autophagy. Senescence-induced autophagy creates a permissive metabolic microenvironment for tumor initiation and growth through the production of high-energy mitochondrial fuels from fibroblasts—such as lactate and ketones—that feed nascent (emerging) cancer cells. Senescent fibroblasts can also stimulate tumor formation and promote its growth and spread through the production of inflammation-signaling molecules. To help prevent the onset or recurrence of cancer, in addition to changes in diet and lifestyle, it important to eradicate aged, autophagy-prone, senescent fibroblasts.

Peter's sermon:
Then Peter opened his mouth, and said, Of a truth I perceive that God is no respecter of persons:
But in every nation he that feareth him, and worketh righteousness, is accepted with him.
The word which God sent unto the children of Israel, preaching peace by Jesus Christ: (he is Lord of all)
That word, I say, ye know, which was published throughout all Judaea, and began from Galilee, after the baptism which John preached;
How God anointed Jesus of Nazareth with the Holy Ghost and with power: who went about doing good, and healing all that were oppressed of the devil; for God was with him.
And we are witnesses of all things which he did both in the land of the Jews, and in Jerusalem; whom they slew and hanged on a tree:
Him God raised up the third day, and shewed him openly;
Not to all the people, but unto witnesses chosen before of God, even to us, who did eat and drink with him after he rose from the dead.
And he commanded us to preach unto the people, and to testify that it is he which was ordained of God to be the Judge of quick and dead.
To him give all the prophets witness, that through his name whosoever believeth in him shall receive remission of sins.(Acts of the Apostles 10:34-43)

And have hope toward God, which they themselves also allow, that there shall be a resurrection of the dead, both of the just and unjust. (Acts of the Apostles 24:15)
When the Son of man shall come in his glory, and all the holy angels with him, then shall he sit upon the throne of his glory:
And before him shall be gathered all nations: and he shall separate them one from another, as a shepherd divideth his sheep from the goats:
And he shall set the sheep on his right hand, but the goats on the left.
Then shall the King say unto them on his right hand, Come, ye blessed of my Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world:
For I was an hungred, and ye gave me meat: I was thirsty, and ye gave me drink: I was a stranger, and ye took me in:
Naked, and ye clothed me: I was sick, and ye visited me: I was in prison, and ye came unto me.
Then shall the righteous answer him, saying, Lord, when saw we thee an hungred, and fed thee? or thirsty, and gave thee drink?
When saw we thee a stranger, and took thee in? or naked, and clothed thee?
Or when saw we thee sick, or in prison, and came unto thee?
And the King shall answer and say unto them, Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the least of these my brethren, ye have done it unto me.
Then shall he say also unto them on the left hand, Depart from me, ye cursed, into everlasting fire, prepared for the devil and his angels:
For I was an hungred, and ye gave me no meat: I was thirsty, and ye gave me no drink:
I was a stranger, and ye took me not in: naked, and ye clothed me not: sick, and in prison, and ye visited me not.
Then shall they also answer him, saying, Lord, when saw we thee an hungred, or athirst, or a stranger, or naked, or sick, or in prison, and did not minister unto thee?
Then shall he answer them, saying, Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye did it not to one of the least of these, ye did it not to me.
And these shall go away into everlasting punishment: but the righteous into life eternal. (Matthew 25:31-46)
And if any man hear my words, and believe not, I judge him not: for I came not to judge the world, but to save the world.
He that rejecteth me, and receiveth not my words, hath one that judgeth him: the word that I have spoken, the same shall judge him in the last day. (John 12:47,48)
For whom it is written:
Then Peter said unto him, Lord, speakest thou this parable unto us, or even to all?
And the Lord said, Who then is that faithful and wise steward, whom his lord shall make ruler over his household, to give them their portion of meat in due season?
Blessed is that servant, whom his lord when he cometh shall find so doing.
Of a truth I say unto you, that he will make him ruler over all that he hath.
But and if that servant say in his heart, My lord delayeth his coming; and shall begin to beat the menservants and maidens, and to eat and drink, and to be drunken;
The lord of that servant will come in a day when he looketh not for him, and at an hour when he is not aware, and will cut him in sunder, and will appoint him his portion with the unbelievers.(Luke 12:41-46)
Eyewitness accounts:
For we have not followed cunningly devised fables, when we made known unto you the power and coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, but were eyewitnesses of his majesty. (2 Peter 1:16)
For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures;
And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures:
And that he was seen of Cephas, then of the twelve:
After that, he was seen of above five hundred brethren at once; of whom the greater part remain unto this present, but some are fallen asleep.
After that, he was seen of James; then of all the apostles. (1 Corinthians 15:3-7)
Even as they delivered them unto us, which from the beginning were eyewitnesses, and ministers of the word… (Luke 1:2)
The prayer of Jesus Christ:
I pray for them: I pray not for the world, but for them which thou hast given me; for they are thine. (John 17:9)
I pray not that thou shouldest take them out of the world, but that thou shouldest keep them from the evil. (John 17:15)
Neither pray I for these alone, but for them also which shall believe on me through their word… (John 17:20)
Why is important?
For the eyes of the Lord are over the righteous, and his ears are open unto their prayers: but the face of the Lord is against them that do evil. (1 Peter 3:12)
Behold, I come quickly: hold that fast which thou hast, that no man take thy crown. (Revelation 3:11)
Because Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of God. (Matthew 4:4)

When Sandra Lee was diagnosed with breast cancer and underwent a double mastectomy in 2015, the stress of it caused her to lose weight. But the celebrity cook decided to gain back the weight, according to Today.com.

“I gained weight on purpose,” said the 53-year-old, who is in remission. “I actually worked at it with my doctor as I was borderline underweight.” She gained 10 pounds, including muscle she put on as result of exercise, and feels and looks great.

Lee was recently named one of People magazine’s “Most Beautiful” honorees. “Loving your body and yourself is super important,” she said. “Our bodies are a gift and our lives are a gift and they’re both to be cherished every single day.”

A new study finds disruptions in health insurance coverage are common in the United States and are associated with poorer cancer care and survival. The study appears in JNCI: The Journal of the National Cancer institute.

For years, experts have known that lack of health insurance coverage is associated with poor access and receipt of cancer care and survival in the United States. Meanwhile, disruptions in coverage are common among low-income populations and little is known how these disruptions can affect cancer care, from prevention and screening to diagnosis, treatment and survival.

Disruptions can be caused by gaps in coverage, or transitions between types of coverage (e.g., public and private) or between specific health insurance plans.

Cancer and Coronavirus COVID-19 / Important Covid - 19 Updates
« Last post by danialthomas on March 28, 2020, 03:29:32 pm »
Cases of COVID-19 (coronavirus disease of 2019) continue to rise in the United States. Please do not minimize the impact this virus can have, even in young people (see https://www.propublica.org/article/a-medical-worker-describes--terrifying-lung-failure-from-covid19-even-in-his-young-patients).

Based on recent data (see https://www.newsweek.com/hydroxychloroquine-coronavirus-conventional-care-study-1494176), I am no longer prescribing hydroxychloroquine to my patients. I am now prescribing nitazoxanide as an alternative (see https://www.nature.com/articles/s41422-020-0282-0.pdf).

Like me, I am sure you have gotten unsolicited emails talking about using supplements to “strengthen your immune system” considering COVID-19. I’m all in favor of a strong immune system, but that may not be enough when you have a virus that can DISABLE the immune system. In my professional medical opinion, you need a protocol that can simultaneously: a) kill COVID-19, b) block the ability of the virus to inhibit the immune system, c) limit the cytokine storm, and d) inhibit lung damage.

Please note that lack of time prevents me from answering any questions you may have from this posting. This information is being posted to help protect you and your family.

Experts say treatment decisions should depend on the individual and factors such as cancer stage.

Amid the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, many cancer patients are facing a series of dilemmas, including whether or not to keep receiving treatment, Vox reports.

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, about 650,000 cancer patients are treated with chemotherapy in an outpatient oncology clinic in the United States each year.

But many people living with cancer have compromised immune systems and are among the groups of people at greater risk of contracting the novel coronavirus that causes COVID-19, a respiratory disease whose symptoms can range from mild to severe.

A recent report from the National Comprehensive Cancer Network found that cancer patients in China with COVID-19 had a 3.5 times higher risk of mechanical ventilation, ICU admission and death compared with those without the disease.

This puts both patients and oncologists in a difficult predicament. Oncologists ask themselves, “Should we continue to give immune-system-suppressing cancer treatments to patients during the COVID-19 pandemic?” On the other hand, patients ask, “What happens to me and my cancer if I stop treatment altogether?”

The problem is, chemotherapy drugs damage healthy white blood cells, which are the body’s defense against viruses like the novel coronavirus. But stopping treatment could also put people living with cancer at risk for even more problems, including tumor progression and shorter survival times.

What’s more, it’s unclear how long this pandemic will last. Although some patients have expressed a willingness to skip one or two chemo treatments, as Vox puts it, “If a patient were to delay their chemo treatment right now, it might not be any safer to resume the treatment should they reschedule it for the coming weeks or months.”
