Excessive cellular proliferation is a telltale sign of cancer. According to a review by researchers from the University of Colorado Cancer Center (CU Cancer Center), viruses can manipulate the human immune system to ensure their survival and even promote cancer. Fortunately, this discovery can be used to boost the effectiveness of immune-based therapies to fight cancer. Dr. Sharon Kuss-Duerkop, a research instructor working in the lab of CU Cancer Center investigator Dr. Dohun Pyeon, said that causing cancer may be a side effect of viruses manipulating the … [Read more...] about Researchers discover how viruses manipulate the immune system to cause cancer
Attention, men: an alarming number of you — 45%, by one recent study’s count —are walking around with a sexually transmitted infection (STI). Further, that STI is putting both you and your partners at risk for cancer. And while there's a vaccine that significantly reduces that risk, doctors are not offering it to young men. Advertisement - Continue Reading Below That's the takeaway from a new study on human papillomavirus (HPV), which is now the most common STI in the country, with approximately 14 million people in the United States getting infected every year. Because HPV increases the risk of various types of cancer, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommends that boys and girls get vaccinated between the ages of 11 and 12. But according to the data, which was presented at an Annual Meeting of the Society of Gynecologic Oncology, 65 percent of girls have completed the vaccination schedule for HPV, versus 56 percent of boys — even though the … [Read more...] about HPV Is Putting Men at Risk of Cancer. So Why Aren’t They Getting the Vaccine?

But not to worry, claims the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) – we’re all apparently not using our cellphones enough for them to cause any significant harm, so keep on texting and gorging yourself on social media. It was the National Toxicology Program (NTP) that conducted this latest research, focusing specifically on the effects of exposure to constant, high levels of radio-frequency (RF) radiation. As has similarly been found in other research, cellphone radiation is a high-risk potential cause … [Read more...] about Despite studies finding increases risk of cancer from cellphone radiation, the FDA claims they’re safe as long as you’re not a “heavy user”

Tags: antibiotic resistance, Antibiotics, badcancer, badhealth, badmedicine, badscience, cancer, cancer causes, Chemotherapy, CTX, Dangerous Medicine, microbiota, superbugs, T-cells, toxic ingredients (Natural News) Antibiotics can be life-saving medications, and their development is considered one of the greatest achievements of modern medicine. However, more is not necessarily better when it comes to antibiotics, and the rise of superbugs is testament to this fact. Now there’s another good reason to avoid overusing them: It can reduce the efficacy of cancer treatment. A study out of the Medical College of Georgia at Augusta University has found more evidence that antibiotic use can hamper cancer treatment, and it’s believed to be related to the way some treatments depend on the gut’s microbiota to activate the T-cells that drive the treatment’s response. In newer therapies, the effect of these drugs is mixed, but … [Read more...] about Another danger of antibiotic overuse: It undermines other therapies, such as cancer treatments
