But what if there was a naturally-occurring process that does pretty much the same? A new study now focuses on that question and explores its possible implications. A team of scientists from Northwestern University have reportedly figured out something about Huntington’s disease and how it could be used to fight various types of cancer in patients. To be more specific, they started wondering why exactly people with Huntington’s have an 80 percent less cancer risk than the general population. From this starting point, they went on to discover that the disease is simply toxic to … [Read more...] about Scientists seek to use gene from deadly disease as new cancer treatment… could it actually work?

I knew the word was GOITER, but I did not know whether it was spelled with an ER or RE. I also realized that I didn’t know too much about goiter, other than the fact that it is somehow linked to the thyroid gland. As I was due for my medical checkup soon, I made a mental note to ask my doctor. What Is a Goiter? Goiter (goitre in UK) is a swelling in the neck caused by an enlarged thyroid gland. The thyroid is a butterfly-shaped gland found at the front of the neck, below the Adam’s apple. Its main job is to secrete thyroid hormones (T3 and T4), which help regulate body metabolism. In addition to the swelling, other signs include a tight feeling in your throat, hoarseness, difficulty swallowing, and, if the swelling is more pronounced, difficulty breathing.

Scientists from the American Chemical Society (ACS) have observed interactions between A. compressa and the American cockroach, and once stung by the former, the latter will lose control of its behavior. The parasitic wasp then uses the cockroach as a host for its egg. After several days, the hatchling will feed on the live cockroach. However gruesome the process, the scientists report that it has helped them identify a new … [Read more...] about Natural remedy for Parkinson’s? Wasp venom shows surprising promise as a treatment
