ARE BREAST CANCER VACCINES THE NEW CHEMOTHERAPY?(BY JORGE PEREZ)

Chemotherapy for breast cancer is one of today’s most common treatments. However, tomorrow’s therapies are giving patients and breast cancer centers new hope for a better, gentler cure, thanks to promising studies on breast cancer vaccines. The idea of curing breast cancer with a simple therapeutic vaccine instead of surgery and/or months of chemotherapy or radiation is very appealing to patients and breast cancer centers alike. And while we’re not quite there yet scientifically, that certainly is the goal—one that’s within reach. In the past year, medical powerhouses like the Mayo Clinic, Johns Hopkins and MD Anderson have been studying various therapeutic breast cancer vaccines, all showing promise. The Mayo Clinic is currently working on a breast cancer vaccine for a highly aggressive type called ‘triple negative’, which affects 15-20% of breast cancer patients. It cannot be treated by estrogen blockers like Tamoxifen, as this particular form of breast cancer is not fueled by estro…

THE IMPORTANCE OF TAKING CALCIUM SUPPLIMENTS (BY RYAN COTE)

Calcium is the most abundant mineral in the human body and also an important supplement to take. Calcium is needed to form bones and teeth and is also required for blood clotting, transmission of signals in nerve cells, and muscle contraction. The importance of calcium for preventing osteoporosis, however, is probably its most well-known role.

While anyone can benefit from taking a calcium supplement, it's a MUST for those that rarely consume dairy products, especially women because of the threat of osteoporosis. It seems that few people realize how important calcium is to their body, but if you consider the fact that it's needed for healthy bones, that in itself is a strong argument to make sure you're getting enough calcium daily. What's the adequate daily intake of calcium? 1,000-1,200 mg daily.

So how do you choose a calcium supplement. A form of calcium has recently emerged called coral calcium. It's a natural form of calcium derived from Okinawa marine coral. T…

Valuable Tips For Handling Blood Glucose Safely And Naturally by V K Rajagopalan

A large number of people incorrectly think that diabetes can only be addressed by means of drugs, which as you might well know, frequently include daily insulin injections. In these days it is common knowledge that very poor diets are the main cause of diabetes, so surely a person's eating regimen can have a major impact if they have already got diabetes.

The truth of the matter is, you can oftentimes control diabetes merely by modifying your diet. Furthermore, a diabetes diet does not mean you can never ever eat all those comfort foods you like so much. You will nevertheless need to be aware of your meals, and how much you eat, and this is why I suggest that you use a diabetic diet carbohydrate counter.

Consuming Comfort Foods As A Diabetic Comfort foods like macaroni and cheese for instance, are full of fats and carbohydrates (carbs) so they can quickly push your daily carb intake over your recommended daily limit. You are able to enjoy all these meals, but you must make every s…

REFRIGIRATION CAN CAUSE CERTAIN FOODS TO GET SPOILED FASTER.(JOEL MARION)

I just read an interesting article on how refrigeration of certain food items
can get spoiled if refrigerated .The article was written by Joel Marion ,
co- founder,
 Bio Trust Nutrition.
Here is his take
Did you know that refrigeration can actually cause certain food
 to spoil faster?  It's true.  In fact, here are 7 foods that you'll never
 find in my refrigerator (mostly because I store them somewhere else):

1. Bananas - Storing bananas in the refrigerator can actually disrupt
 the ripening process.  In fact, once refrigerated, a banana may never
 be able to resume the ripening process even if returned to
 room temperature.
  Just think of how devastating that is for the banana

2. Sweet Potatoes - When exposed to cold temperatures, starches
 found in potatoes will turn to sugar, disrupting their flavor and
 texture
, not to mention increasing their sugar content. If you prefer tasteless
potatoes that cause weight gain, however, please refrigerate.

3. Tomatoes - Ever had a…

THE MISSING LINK TO GOOD HEALTH (by METHODFITNESS)

Sometimes it's hard to know which foods will make us fit as a fiddle, and that's especially true since a lot of opinions are conflicting. Also, eating nutritious foods doesn't guarantee that you're getting all of the necessary vitamins and minerals. Victoria Boutenko, penned a fascinating book entitled Green for Life. Boutenko searched for the perfect human diet, and made some intriguing discoveries.

She discovered the Chimpanzee Connection. Chimpanzees are genetically the closest relatives of humans, and have DNA that is 99% similar!

So what? Consider that chimpanzees are physically healthier than homo sapiens are. The former also have an extremely robust natural resistance to various diseases that are fatal to humans, such as cancer. The studies revealed that the key to the chimps' fantastic health was their diet. Specifically, there are major variances between the diets of humans and chimps.

In fact, the eating habits of Homo sapiens and chimps is extraordin…

Remedies for Fatigue & When You’re Feeling Tired

Our existences are anything but simple, and most of us will find ourselves overworked and exhausted from time to time-or all the time. Fatigue, true fatigue, is much more than feeling overworked and just being sleepy, although it can make you want to curl up in bed and forget the rest of the world. It creeps into everyday life and effects your physical and mental well-being making it very difficult, if not impossible, to get things done.-it is hard for people to understand that horrible exhaustion unless they experience it themselves. To the outside world, you just look lazy when all you want to do is lie in bed.
Fatigue is a difficult thing to manage, as it is such a vague symptom or condition. There’s physical fatigue, emotional fatigue, fatigue as a symptom or as a disease in and of itself. There is a good chance there’s an underlying medical condition causing fatigue, for example depression or low blood sugar, and this must be addressed before you can hope to get rid of the exhaus…
