We and Our world with Cancer

The Cancer World Cancer Day is celebrated on February 4 to raise cancer awareness and to encourage its prevention, detection, and management. This day was founded by the Union for International Cancer Control (UICC) to support the goals of the World Cancer Declaration, the primary aim being to reduce death and disability caused by cancer by 2020. Cancer accounts for more deaths worldwide than AIDS, malaria, and tuberculosis combined. According to the World Economic Forum (WEF) – “cancer is among one of the three greatest risks to the [...]

How Curd lower the risk of breast cancer in women?

How Curd lower the risk of breast cancer in women?   Consumption of probiotics might assist enhance the proportion of useful micro organism within the breast and thus help in stopping the chance of breast cancer. The findings showed that Lactobacillus and Streptococcus, considered to be health-promoting bacteria, were more prevalent in healthy breasts than in cancerous ones. Each teams have anticarcinogenic properties. Thus, "our work raises the query that should ladies, particularly these at risk for breast cancer, take probiotic lactobacilli to [...]

Health Benefits of consuming Broccoli

Consuming broccoli or brassica vegetable like kale or cabbage every three or four days may also lower the risk of cancers and other degenerative diseases, a new study suggests. The scientists identified genes in broccoli that control the accumulation of phenolic compounds associated with a lowered risk of coronary heart disease, Type II diabetes, asthma and several types of cancer. Phenolic compounds have good antioxidant activity that affects biochemical pathways affiliated with inflammation in mammals. “We need inflammation because it's a response [...]

Why Labradors are overweight?

Why Labradors are overweight? Labradors are more prone to being overweight in comparison to other breeds and scientists have now identified genetic variation that causes obesity in these dogs. According to researchers, in developed countries, 34-59 percent of dogs are overweight -- a condition associated with reduced lifespan, mobility problems, diabetes, cancer and heart disease -- as it is in humans. The findings, published in the journal Cell Metabolism, showed that one in four (23 percent) Labradors carry at least one copy [...]

Indians more prone to colon cancer due to Vegetarian diet

Indians more prone to colon cancer due to Vegetarian diet   A vegetarian diet has led to a gene mutation that may make Indians more susceptible to inflammation, and by association, increased risk of heart disease and colon cancer, says a study. Researchers from Cornell University analysed frequencies of the mutation in 234 primarily vegetarian Indians and 311 US individuals. They found the gene variant associated with a vegetarian diet in 68 percent of the Indians and in just 18 percent of Americans. The [...]

Novel immunotherapy “A Hope For Brain Cancer”

A Hope For Brain Cancer Novel immunotherapy “A Hope For Brain Cancer” said Researchers, including one of Indian-origin, have shown that a next-generation cell-based immunotherapy may offer new hope in the fight against the most aggressive form of brain cancer called glioma. Despite improvements in surgical procedures, chemotherapy, and radiotherapy, this type of brain tumour is still notoriously hard to treat -- less than 10 percent of patients survive beyond five years. Cell-based immunotherapy involves the injection of a therapeutic anticancer vaccine [...]
