Cambridge Journals Online - Abstract

Cambridge Journals Online - Abstract | The Real Truth About Health | Scoop.it
Grape seed extract (GSE) from Italia, Palieri and Red Globe cultivars inhibits cell growth and induces apoptosis in Caco-2 human colon cancer cells in a dose-dependent manner.
Jacqueline Laurette Jones's insight:
Grape Seed Extract Kills Colon Cancer Cells via new Pathway: Researchers have discovered a new mechansim through which grape seed extract (GSE) kills Caco-2 colon cancer cells. GSE severely damages these cancer cells by causing oxidative stress and increasing intracellular calcium levels, but importantly also inactivates ERK (extracellular signal-regulated kinase) which is thought to be key for cancer cell survival. The result is that these cancer cells undergo programmed cell death (apoptosis). The ERK-based pathway has been previously unrecognized, and opens the door to interesting new possibilities in using GSE in the fight against cancer.

Latinos Live Longest | The Alliance for Natural Health USA

Latinos Live Longest | The Alliance for Natural Health USA | The Real Truth About Health | Scoop.it
Hispanic Americans have lower income and less health insurance, but they live longer than non-Hispanic whites (the most medically insured group in the US).
Jacqueline Laurette Jones's insight:

The common perception is that income, education, and access to health insurance are the most important factors for longevity, but these recent findings turn that assumption upside down. In fact, the revelation that Latinos lack health insurance at a rate higher than other groups (they are two to three times as likely to be uninsured as the rest of the population) may be significant. Could the very avoidance of modern medicine be keeping US Latinos alive longer?
