According to the American Cancer Society’s predictions, this year there will be 95,270 new cases of colon cancer diagnosed in the United States. The common way to treat the disease is by undergoing chemo, surgery or radiation that, unfortunately, have tons of negative side-effects. Luckily, recent study shows that there is a safer, natural way of treating the disease. For many, hearing that coconut oil is potent enough to fight off cancer is nothing new because it has been considered as a superfood for some time thanks to its many health properties.
Scientists have identified how an inherited genetic variant, associated with an increased risk of developing the most common type of leukaemia, helps cancer cells survive. The findings by researchers at The Institute of Cancer Research, London could lead to new ways to target the disease. Chronic lymphocytic leukaemia (CLL) is a slowly progressing and incurable form of cancer that affects blood-producing cells in the bone marrow. It is diagnosed in over 4,000 people each year in the UK.

This is a common theme when it comes to using food as medicine and the science behind it. It’s unfortunate that science today is dominated by the pharmaceutical industry, and that most of the research received by physicians in the Western world comes directly from pharmaceutical companies.

If, and by how much cellphones increase the risk of brain cancer is a long and disputed argument. No one study is going to settle anything, but one statistical analysis of data in Australia hints at cellphones being reasonably safe. The study examines the incidence of brain cancer in the Australian population between 1982 to 2013. The study pitted the prevalence of mobile phones among the population—starting at 0 percent—against brain cancer rates, using data from national cancer registration data.
An international panel of doctors has decided that a type of tumor that was classified as a cancer is not a cancer at all.

A team of Ottawa researchers have discovered an important piece of the puzzle that could lead to better treatment for glioblastoma, the deadliest form of brain cancer.
The discovery could lead to future therapies that would offer some hope to glioblastoma patients, for whom current treatments are limited, at best. Glioblastoma is resistant to both radiation and chemotherapy, and is difficult to remove during surgery. As a result, most people diagnosed with the brain cancer survive just 16 months.
