Cannabis Extracts Rich In Cannabidiol (CBD) May Effectively Treat Colon Cancer.

Cannabis Extracts Rich In Cannabidiol (CBD) May Effectively Treat Colon Cancer. | Christian Yamashiba Kasongo's medical review | Scoop.it

 

Cannabidiol (CBD) seems to carry less of a stigma than tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), a psychoactive cannabinoid that is credited with the “high” associated with cannabis, and shows promise as a way to treat a variety of cancers. In turn, CBD has received a great deal of attention in recent years.

 

Now, a team of researchers from Italy and the UK report that cannabis extracts high in cannabidiol (CBD) can help prevent the genesis and spread of colon cancer in mice. Their study was published in Phytomedicine December 27.

 

According to their results, a “botanical drug substance” (BDS) with high levels of cannabidiol (CBD) inhibited the growth of tumor cells, but not healthy ones. The researchers determined that this action was mediated by activation of the cells’ CB1 and CB2 receptors.

 

Also investigated in the study was the effect of pure cannabidiol (CBD) on colon cancer. According to the data collected, pure CBD inhibited tumor growth also. Interestingly, it did so through activation of the CB1 receptors only.

Researchers identify key molecular components linking circadian rhythms and cell division cycles

Researchers identify key molecular components linking circadian rhythms and cell division cycles | Christian Yamashiba Kasongo's medical review | Scoop.it

 

Researchers at the University of Cincinnati (UC) have identified key molecular components linking circadian rhythms and cell division cycles in Neurospora crassa, providing insights that could lead to improved disease treatments and drug delivery.

 

The researchers in the UC College of Medicine Department of Molecular and Cellular Physiology, led by Christian Hong, PhD, published their findings Monday, Jan. 13, online ahead of print in PNAS (Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences).

 

"Our work has large implications for the general understanding of the connection between the cell cycle and the circadian clock," says Hong, an assistant professor in the molecular and cellular physiology department who collaborated with an international team of researchers on the project.

Symptoms of mineral deficiency

This is only an illustrative list. Please note that minerals supplements work best with co-factors and nearly all minerals can occur in a human body unless one is eating deficient foods/processed foods.

Dr. Joel Wallach

On his tape entitled: "Dead Doctors don't lie", Dr. Wallach, BS, DVM, ND., a veterinarian doctor, says, "Every animal or human that died of natural causes died of a mineral deficiency".

Symptoms of mineral deficiency according to Dr. Wallach:

Calcium deficiency: Facial muscles are sagging, osteoporosis sets in. The following also develop, according to natural pre-dispositions: heel spurs, kidney stones, calcium deposits, cramps and twitches, PMS, lower back pain. Arthritis is osteoporosis of the joint ends of the bones (in 80% of all cases).

Chromium deficiency: Man develops 'Pica' an unnatural craving for chocolate, sweets and other substances such as pickles, dirt etc.

Bismuth deficiency: Heals ulcers (Helicobacter pilori) together with some tetracycline (antibiotic). You can also use Manuka honey.

Selenium deficiency: Together with Vitamin E, Beta-carotene and Selenium, more than 13% of all cancers can be cured according to a Chinese study. This also cures cardio-myopathy (heart attack) and 'liver' spots.

Boron deficiency: Kidney stones are symptoms of a raging calcium deficiency. This condition is quickly cured with addition of calcium (please, not calcium carbonate), magnesium and boron. Addition of this mineral also helps regulate testosterone and estrogen hormone production.

Copper deficiency: Ruptured aneurysms, a ballooning of blood vessels, a weakening of the fibers of arteries, strokes - can always be cured by the addition of copper. Gray hair also disappears then. So do vericose veins and sagging body parts.

Chromium and vanadium deficiency: Low blood sugar, diabetes.

Tin deficiency: Male baldness

Zinc deficiency: Loss of smell and taste. Loss of male libido.

Antioxidant drug reverses multiple sclerosis-like disease in mice.

Antioxidant drug reverses multiple sclerosis-like disease in mice. | Christian Yamashiba Kasongo's medical review | Scoop.it

 

Researchers at Oregon Health & Science University have discovered that an antioxidant designed by scientists more than a dozen years ago to fight damage within human cells significantly helps symptoms in mice that have a multiple sclerosis-like disease.

 

The antioxidant — called MitoQ — has shown some promise in fighting neurodegenerative diseases. But this is the first time it has been shown to significantly reverse an MS-like disease in an animal.

 

The discovery could lead to an entirely new way to treat multiple sclerosis, which affects more than 2.3 million people worldwide.

Multiple sclerosis occurs when the body's immune system attacks the myelin, or the protective sheath, surrounding nerve fibers of the central nervous system. Some underlying nerve fibers are destroyed. Resulting symptoms can include blurred vision and blindness, loss of balance, slurred speech, tremors, numbness and problems with memory and concentration.

 

The antioxidant research was published in the December edition of Biochimica et Biophysica Acta Molecular Basis of Disease. The research team was led by P. Hemachandra Reddy, Ph.D., an associate scientist in the Division of Neuroscience at OHSU's Oregon National Primate Research Center.

Sweden Becomes First Western Nation to Reject Low-fat Diet in Favor of Low-carb High-fat Nutrition

Sweden Becomes First Western Nation to Reject Low-fat Diet in Favor of Low-carb High-fat Nutrition | Christian Yamashiba Kasongo's medical review | Scoop.it

Sweden has become the first Western nation to develop national dietary guidelines that reject the popular low-fat diet dogma in favor of low-carb high-fat nutrition advice.

 

"Butter, olive oil, heavy cream, and bacon are not harmful foods. Quite the opposite. Fat is the best thing for those who want to lose weight. And there are no connections between a high fat intake and cardiovascular disease."

 

"Previously, the health care system has given the public advice to avoid fat, saturated fat in particular, and calories. A low-carb diet has been dismissed as harmful and as being a fad diet lacking any scientific basis."

 "This report turns the current concepts upside down and advocates a low-carbohydrate, high-fat diet, as the most effective weapon against obesity..."

Should journals stop publishing research funded by the drug industry?

Should journals stop publishing research funded by the drug industry? | Christian Yamashiba Kasongo's medical review | Scoop.it

 

The BMJ and its sibling journals have stopped publishing research funded by the tobacco industry for two main reasons: the research is corrupted and the companies publish their research to advance their commercial aims, oblivious of the harm they do. But these arguments apply even more strongly to research funded by the drug industry, and we suggest there is a better way to communicate the results of trials that would be safer for patients.

 

Prescribed drugs are the third leading cause of death, partly because of flaws in the evidence published in journals. We have long known that clinical trials funded by the drug industry are much more likely than publicly funded trials to produce results favourable to the company.The reason is obvious. The difference between an honest and a less than honest data analysis can be worth billions of euros, and the fraudulent trials of some cyclo-oxygenase-2 inhibitors for arthritis and selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors for depression are good examples.

 

There are many clever ways in which companies manipulate their research, and two recently published books give dozens of examples.

 

Flaws in the coding of adverse events can distort results without leaving any trace of what has happened, as we cannot get access to the raw data the drug companies hold. Three large trials of prasugrel, rosiglitazone, and ticagrelor made by Daiichi Sankyo and Eli Lilly, GlaxoSmithKline, and AstraZeneca, respectively, published in the New England Journal of Medicine were shown to be seriously misleading. Such biased selection by the sponsor of “unclear cases” of serious adverse events for review by an independent adjudication committee also corrupts the evidence base. Less cleverly, the companies publish favourable results in major journals and bury unfavourable ones. Half of trials are never published.
