Low-Carbohydrate, High-Protein Diets May Reduce Both Tumor Growth Rates And Cancer Risk

Eating a low-carbohydrate, high-protein diet may reduce the risk of cancer and slow the growth of tumors already present, according to a study published in Cancer Research, a journal of the American Association for Cancer Research. The study was conducted in mice, but the scientists involved agree that the strong biological findings are definitive enough […]

DNA Decoded From Patients With Breast Cancer Reveals Complexity And Hints Toward Personalized Medicine

In the single largest cancer genomics investigation reported to date, scientists have sequenced the whole genomes of tumors from 50 breast cancer patients and compared them to the matched DNA of the same patients’ healthy cells. This comparison allowed researchers to find mutations that only occurred in the cancer cells. They uncovered incredible complexity in […]

Dendritic Cell Vaccine Increases Survival In Patients With Deadly Brain Cancer (Glioblastoma)

A dendritic cell vaccine personalized for each individual based on the patient’s own tumor may increase median survival time in those with a deadly form of brain cancer called glioblastoma, an early phase study at UCLA’s Jonsson Comprehensive Cancer Center has found. The results are published this week in the peer-reviewed journal Clinical Cancer Research.

Experts Warn That Mobile Phone Radiation Excites The Brain Of Healthy Adults

Expert scientists working with Environmental Health Trust (EHT), a nonprofit research and educational group, say that new studies showing that cell phone radiation excites the brain strengthen the need for a major research program on mobile phones (also known as ‘cell phones’) and health, revamping approaches to setting standards, and putting warnings on cell phones. […]
