Liver Cancer Breakthrough
June 5, 2007 - The miracle drug is called Sorafenib. Two tablets a day improves the survival rate to 10.7 months from 8 months for those on a placebo. That type of survival advantage "has never happened" with liver cancer "and is a major breakthrough in the management of the disease," said Dr. Josep Llovet, the lead author. This is a significant new development against a devastating disease that until now has been notoriously difficult to treat. More than a half-million people worldwide develop liver cancer each year, and now they have new hope.
"...This is actually a quite impressive gain," Dr. Nancy Davidson of Johns Hopkins' Bloomberg School of Public Health; and Llovet, who is with the Mount Sinai School of Medicine in New York and Hospital Clinic of Barcelona, Spain told AP: "It is the first effective systemic treatment for liver cancer, which is such a huge problem internationally. Sorafenib works by not only attacking the malignant cells, but also cutting off the blood supply that feeds the liver cancer tumors. Doctors think it works within the liver and on cancer cells that have spread elsewhere in the body. Although the cancer cells don't shrink or disappear with Sorafenib, they also don't grow. You are not curing the disease but you are delaying the progression of the disease significantly and strikingly."

New Kidney Cancer Treatment
The drug, which is sold under the brand name Nexavar, has already been approved for use in the United States and dozens of other countries as a treatment for advanced kidney cancer. The study findings were released on June 4 in Chicago at the American Society of Clinical Oncology's annual meeting; including New Treatment Options for Patients with Advanced Gastrointestinal Cancers and other information including lung cancer, active treatment against previously untreated Chronic Myelogenous Leukemia, and benefits of coffee consumption; etc.
Anti-Cancer / Disease Nutrition
Eating six servings of fruits and vegetables per day per 1,000 calories reduced the risk of head and neck cancer by 29 percent compared to eating one and a half servings, The National Cancer Research Center in Seattle reports.

Beware of  popular carbonated sodas that contain the preservatives, sodium benzoate or potassium benzoate; used for decades by the global carbonated drinks industry. Those common preservatives are found in drinks such as Coca-Cola, Sprite, Dr. Pepper, Fanta and Diet Pepsi, etc., and may cause serious cell damage, according to a report in Britain's "The Independent."

The problem is usually associated with aging and alcohol abuse, but new findings show that drinking soda with the preservative can eventually lead to cirrhosis of the liver and degenerative diseases such as Parkinson's.

In combination with ascorbic acid (vitamin C), sodium and potassium benzoate may form benzene, a known carcinogen. Sodium benzoate or potassium benzoate have the ability to switch off vital parts of a person's DNA, according to research from a British university.

A new study reported in the 'Amer Journal of Clinical Nutrition' claims that Vit. D3 supplement reduces risks of cancer.

Professor Peter Piper, a professor of molecular biology and biotechnology, tested the impact of sodium benzoate on living yeast cells in his laboratory. What he found alarmed him: the benzoate was damaging an important area of DNA in the "power station" of cells known as the mitochondria. He told The Independent on Sunday: "These chemicals have the ability to cause severe damage to DNA in the mitochondria to the point that they totally inactivate it: they knock it out altogether.

"The food industry will say these compounds have been tested and they are completely safe," Piper said. "By the criteria of modern safety testing, the safety tests were inadequate. Like all things, safety testing moves forward and you can conduct a much more rigorous safety test than you could 50 years ago."

He advised parents to think carefully about buying drinks with preservatives until the quantities in products were proved safe by new tests. "My concern is for children who are drinking large amounts," he said.

Anti-oxidants found in fruits and vegetables and supplements like Vitamin C, Vit. E and Alpha Lipoic Acid help to remove harsh toxins that are linked to cancers.

High fiber found in whole grain products help to remove these toxins in the digestive / intestinal tracts. Importantly, oatmeal/oat bran are particularly efficient to prevent colon cancer, constipation and high cholesterol.

Eating meats / processed meats raises the risks of cancers according to many significant studies. See: The Tree of Life Cookbook
Featured data: "Meat & Your Health"

Numerous studies have shown that diet plays a role in cancer; doctors now think that up to two-thirds of all cases of cancer are caused by such lifestyle factors as smoking, an unhealthy diet and lack of exercise. In other words, many types of cancer may be preventable.

The abortion-breast cancer link has been affirmed through studies. For mounting evidence of the abortion / breast cancer link, obtained from The National Library of Medicine: The ABC Research.

Killer Bugs Cause 18% of All Cancers
Nearly one-fifth of all types of cancer worldwide are caused by just a handful of viruses, bacteria and parasites, Reuters Health reports of research from the University of Oxford in the United Kingdom.

Specifically, 17.9 percent of cancer cases globally in 2002 were caused by infections ranging from HIV to the ulcer bug Helicobacter pylori.

The good news: If the infections can be prevented, then many cases of cancer could be avoided, especially in developing nations. Study leader Dr. Donald Maxwell Parkin says that a massive 1.9 million cases of cancer in 2002 are directly attributable to these preventable viral and bacterial infections.

The No.1 culprit is H. pylori, a bacterium that causes stomach ulcers that can lead to stomach cancer, which is responsible for 5.5 percent of all cancers worldwide.

Others on the hot list are human papilloma viruses (HPV), which can cause cervical cancer, and the hepatitis B and C viruses, which cause 85.5 percent of liver cancers. The Epstein-Barr virus accounted for 1 percent of cancers in 2002, most notably Hodgkin's and non-Hodgkin's lymphoma and nasopharyngeal cancer. HIV infection can lead to variety of cancers, including lymphoma, Kaposi's sarcoma and cervical cancer.

 Prevention Could Reduce Cancers Worldwide
Anti-Cancer nutrition as listed above, and daily exercise are proven preventative measures against cancers and other diseases.

What if bacterial/viral infections could be prevented? Estimates calculated indicate that it would reduce cancer by 26 percent in developing nations and 8 percent in developed countries.
