Blocking Sugar Intake can Reduce Cancer Risk and Progression (sugar-free for long life")

Blocking Sugar Intake can Reduce Cancer Risk and Progression (sugar-free for long life") | mikhail | Scoop.it
Sugar fuels cancer. A new study has indicated that blocking dietary sugar can reduce tumor development risk and progression of cancer cells.

For the study, Dr. Cagan and his team engineered fruit flies to express Ras and Src, two important oncogenes, resulting in the development of small head tumors. After feeding the flies a high-sugar diet promoting insulin resistance, they found that high dietary sugar acts together with Ras and Src to increase insulin sensitivity specifically in tumor cells. As MedicalNewsToday reports, “By ramping up signaling of an important pathway called Wingless/Wnt, they increased tumor cells’ insulin receptors to further promote insulin sensitivity. This cascade of activity changed these small, weak tumors and caused them to begin growing aggressively”.

Using these newly identified drug targets (glucose, the RAs/Src oncogenes, and Wingless/Wnt signaling), the researchers identified compounds that could block the process. Using three different drug treatments, the team attacked the three different targets. Together, they “substantially reduced tumor size and progression.” ...

Obesity and type 2 diabetes are preventable lifestyle diseases. These are conditions we control. And if they are creating an environment that fosters prolific tumor growth, we can use that knowledge to combat both cancer and the metabolic disorders that increase the risk of cancer.

In Australia we love to spend time in the sun, but the sun's rays can be harmful if we don't protect ourselfs in the right way.

The national skin cancer awarness campaign allows people to see how deadly the sun can be by providing fact sheets and real life stories about the effects of skin cancer on humans.

The website is a government website and gives readers a reliable and easy to remember method in order to protect themselfs against skin cancer. It tells them to 'slip, slop, slap, wrap and seek', this is both catchy and effective. 

This slogan allows people to realise they can still have a good tome whilst taking small measures to protect themselfs about skin cancer.

Australia's obesity crisis worsens as survey shows two out of three adults overweight or obese

Australia's obesity crisis worsens as survey shows two out of three adults overweight or obese | mikhail | Scoop.it

"Two out of three Australian adults and one in four children are now overweight or obese according to the latest check up on the nation's health."

 

This report states that obesity rates have risen, comparing 2007-2008 and 2011-2012. I think that one of the most important statistics is stated in the introduction:

 

"Australians are giving up smoking and are drinking less but the latest Australian Bureau of Statistics Health Survey shows we’re eating more."

 

The Bureau of Statisitcs says that males are worse than females, with 70% of males wighing in too heavy compared to 56% of females. Not only this, many younger children are also becoming obese early in life.

this ad ficuses on Australias growing obesisity rates

 

giving up smoking and driking is very good but all the progress can be washed down the drain if we eat more than we should. especially if we substitute smoking and drinking with lots of fatty foods and sugary energy drinks.

Soft drinks linked to child heart disease

Soft drinks linked to child heart disease | mikhail | Scoop.it
Soft drinks linked to child heart disease...

 

This article is about how soft drink intake is being linked to heart disease.The primary point of this article is that children who could be as young as 12 years old with high intake of soft drink could increase their risk of heart disease in the future. 

 

The link between heart disease and soft drink  had its first look  at the Westmead Millennium institute where scientists looked at the intake of sugars and the retinal health of children. To understand this research one must realise that narrowed blood vessels in the eye of a child is a sign of cardiovascular disease for them when they become an adult.

 

Similarly at Sydney University 2000 12-year olds had images taken of their retina.In the results it decisively showed that the arteries of the children that were narrower were those who had an intake of over 274 grams of carbohydrates a day.Furthermore In  the U.S a study by the American Journal of chemical nutrition found that a major source of carbohydrates for children is in soft-drinks, and children  with a high risk of disease consume a glass or moreof soft-drink  a day.

 

However with all these studies the final verdict can't be said and further studies still need to be carried out on this topic of health;according to the leader of the study conducted by the American Journal of chemical nutrition.

 

This  article article is quite important for teenagers to realise that they must limit their consumption of enrgy drinks and soft drinks as it can have an adverse affect on your heart.

 

This article relates to the what was learnt  in PDHPE class(Term 4 & 3) on Lifestyle diseases,  with one of the main factors of contracting a lifestlye disease is a high-sugar diet.

if drinking soft drinks helps in the process of heart disease, we need to be more aware and cautious of what we put in our mouths. However this test might be inaccurite , further studies still need to be carried out. Having a high sugar diet is not healthy for the human body.
