Honeybees have long provided humans with vital tools for our survival like the pollination of fruits and vegetables as well as honey which has medicinal and antibiotic properties. A new study published this month in the journal npj Precision Oncology reveals that the role of honeybees in helping humans may have just taken a massive live-saving step forward.
The results of the study, titled Honeybee venom and melittin suppress growth factor receptor activation in HER2-enriched and triple-negative breast cancer, showed that honeybee venom rapidly destroyed triple-negative breast cancerand HER2-enriched breast cancer cells.
(NaturalHealth365)By the end of 2020, there will be 1.8 million new cancer cases expected and over 600,000 cancer deaths, in the United States alone. Yet, even conventionally-trained scientists (and doctors) admit that lifestyle changes can help us to inhibit the growth of cancer cells.
Simply put, there is a lot we can do to avoid cancer! →
(The Truth About Cancer) As a practitioner who has specialized in working with cancer patients for over 40 years, I’m often stunned when some cancer patients talk to me about their health. They say something to the effect of, “I am perfectly healthy except for the cancer.” Of course, this is a nonsensical statement. →
(Prepare For Change) It has long been recognized that solid tumors contain poorly vascularized regions characterized by severe hypoxia (oxygen deprivation), acidosis and nutrient starvation. Over the past decade, work from many laboratories has indicated that hypoxic micro-environments contribute to cancer progression by activating adaptive transcriptional programs that promote cell survival, motility and tumor angiogenesis. →
(Collective-Evolution) Cannabis could potentially slow and even reverse heart failure via TRPV1, a cannabinoid receptor. This is according to research led by a team at the University of Hawaiʻi John A. Burns School of Medicine (JABSOM). Alexander Stokes, a JABSOM assistant professor in cell and molecular biology, said “the potential medical benefits of using cannabis-based therapies for the treatment of heart disease are promising.” →
(NaturalHealth365) Heart disease and cancer, currently the leading causes of death in the United States, together account for over 1.2 million deaths per year. But, a lesser known fact is that many researchers believe both diseases are primarily linked to oxidative stress, the main cause of disease. Fortunately, there are studies which show that quercetin – a plant flavonol – can help control oxidative damage and chronic inflammation, reducing the risk of these life-threatening health conditions. In fact, researchers have found that quercetin helps to protect against a wide range of threats – including environmental toxins, bacterial infections and viruses. →
(NaturalHealth365) A common spice frequently used in Asian cooking may hold the key to slowing down the growth of cancer cells. To be clear, we’re talking about the benefits of turmeric. And, its value is being touted by several major medical institutions like, the Mayo Clinic. Diving deeper into the research, the National Institutes of Health published a systematic review about the anticancer effects of curcumin – the main active ingredient in turmeric. But, that’s not the only one: there are over 1,500 PubMed studies that illustrate the value of turmeric – in the fight against many forms of cancer. →
(NaturalHealth365) We now know that most cancers are avoidable with simple, yet powerful changes to our diet and lifestyle habits. Yet, today we see nearly 1 in every two people getting some form of cancer in their lifetime and a conventionally-trained physician is only permitted to offer surgery, chemotherapy or radiation – which (in truth) will never stop cancer cells from growing out-of-control.
(NaturalHealth365) Cancer patients need to understand the danger of vitamin C deficiencies – especially when looking to overcome a cancer diagnosis. In truth,most people suffering with a chronic degenerative diseaseare vitamin C deficient. But, most disturbing of all, Western medicine refuses to recognize the very real health benefits of IV vitamin C therapy – thanks to the controlling influence of the pharmaceutical industry.
(NaturalHealth365) The American Cancer Society estimates thatover 1.7 million people in the United States will be diagnosed with some form of cancer in 2019. And, while Western medicine remains focused on toxic therapies to ‘treat’ cancer … there are many cancer fighting foods that deserve our attention (and respect).
