(Natural News) Antrodia cinnamomea, also known as camphor fungus, is a parasitic fungus that thrives in the inner cavity of Cinnamomum kanehirae, a tree endemic to Taiwan. It is considered a medicinal mushroom and is used by Taiwanese people to treat liver disease, in particular, liver injury caused by excessive alcohol drinking. In a recent study, researchers from National Taiwan Normal University investigated the anti-inflammatory effect of A. cinnamomea, which contributes a lot to its hepatoprotective ability. The researchers also explored the molecular mechanisms underlying this anti-inflammatory activity. The results of their study were published in The American Journal of Chinese Medicine. →

(Natural News) Oxidative stress is known to play a role in the development of diseases, including chronic inflammation and cancer. Emerging evidence suggests that antioxidant therapy can play a crucial role in treating those diseases. A study published in The American Journal of Chinese Medicine revealed that medicinal plants – including matrimony vine (Lycium barbarum), ginseng (Panax ginseng), jujube (Zizyphus jujuba), freckled milkvetch (Astragalus lentiginosus), and ginkgo biloba – have antioxidant and anti-tumor properties. →

Most are dying of cancer. They have tried every standard treatment, to no avail. Immunotherapy drugs, which can work miracles against a few types of cancer, are not known to work for this kind.
Why immunotherapy causes side effects
Certain types of immunotherapy attack cancer or slow its spread to other parts of the body. Others make it easier for the immune system to destroy cancer cells.
Immunotherapy sometimes results in the immune system attacking healthy cells, which can cause side effects.
(Natural News) Ever since California Democrat Adam Schiff wrote a letter to Amazon’s Jeff Bezos back on March 1 demanding to know what he was planning to do about all of the “medically inaccurate” information on his site, the world’s largest online retailer has been actively scrubbing all sorts of books, videos, and other media that deal with concepts like natural health and wellness.
In yet another damning indictment of the dangers and ineffectiveness of cancer drugs, new research carried out in the UK has found that, in some hospitals, within 30 days of starting treatment, chemotherapy is killing up to 50 per cent of patients who receive it. With even the normally pro-pharma British media expressing shock and saying patients should be warned about the dangers of these toxic chemical treatments, the study provides further evidence that the credibility of chemotherapy as a cure for cancer is collapsing. ➡
Do incentives from Big Pharma influence the way doctors treat cancer patients? A study published earlier this year in JAMA Oncology says YES.
The first study to evaluate reimbursement policies and clinical care in oncology, the review found that oncologists often change their treatment recommendations and prescriptions based on incentives from the pharmaceutical industry.
