  • During colon cancer awareness month, let’s focus on the little things

    Little things truly matter. This is especially true in our fight to prevent colon cancer. Colon cancer almost always starts as tiny mushroom-looking, pre-cancerous growths called “polyps”.  Over a five- to 10-year period, these little 1mm-10mm nothings may evolve into something…cancer. Fortunately, these can be easily removed during a colonoscopy. 

  • World Colorectal Cancer Awareness Month 2022 | MediGence

    Overview The condition of colorectal cancer occurs when cells in the colon or rectum grow out of control. It is also referred to as colon cancer. The colon is also known as the large intestine or bowel. The rectum links the colon to the anus. Polyps, or abnormal growths, can develop in the colon or […]

  • Mayo Clinic Tests Shark Cartilage Supplements for Cancer

    Shark cartilage supplements carry risks, but so do many cancer treatments. The question is, do they work? When it comes to marketing unproven cancer treatments, the “Internet has become the Wild West, so to speak. Fraudsters are really able to…get out there in ways they hadn’t before to take advantage of people.” “Cancer Patients Find […]

  • Can Alcohol Cause Cancer?

    If even light drinking can cause cancer, why don’t doctors warn their patients about it? As I discuss in my video Can Alcohol Cause Cancer?, we’ve known about “the possible association of the consumption of alcohol with excessive mortality from cancer” for more than a hundred years. Though there is “accumulating evidence that alcohol drinking […]

  • Overtreatment of Ductal Carcinoma In Situ

    Nine out of ten women don’t realize that some breast cancers would never have caused any problems or even become known in one’s lifetime. This is an issue ductal carcinoma in situ has brought to the forefront. The whole point of cancer screening is to “detect life-threatening disease at an earlier, more curable stage. Effective […]

  • Those Who Claim the Greatest Benefit From Mammograms May Ironically Suffer the Most Harm

    The mammogram paradox is that women who are harmed the most, are the ones who claim the greatest benefit. While false-positive results, pain during the procedure, and radiation exposure may be among the most frequent harms associated with mammogram screening, overdiagnosis “is now recognized as the most serious downside of population breast screening.” Overdiagnosis is […]

  • Are Lectins in Food Good or Bad for You?

    Might lectins help explain why those who eat more beans and whole grains have less cancer? Lectins are to blame for the great “white kidney bean incident” of 2006 in Japan. One Saturday evening, a TV program introduced a new method to lose weight. The method was simple: toast some dry, raw, white kidney beans […]

  • How to Avoid Lectin Poisoning

    How should we properly cook beans? In the 1800s, a compound was discovered in castor beans, which we would come to know as the first of a class of lectin proteins, natural compounds found throughout the food supply, but concentrated in beans, whole grains, and certain fruits and vegetables. Every decade or two, a question […]

  • Is White Rice a Yellow-Light or Red-Light Food?

    Arsenic is not just considered to be a carcinogen; it’s also designated as a “nonthreshold carcinogen, meaning that any dose, no matter how small, carries some cancer risk”—so there really isn’t a “safe” level of exposure. Given that, it may be reasonable to “use the conservative ALARA” approach, reducing exposure As Low As Reasonably Achievable. […]

  • The Antioxidant Power of Açaí vs. Apples

    There are so many açaí products on the market now, from frozen pulp in smoothie packs to freeze-dried powder and supplements. How is it eaten traditionally? “In the Brazilian Amazon, the Indian tribes of the forest cut down the tree and eat the palm heart…then urinate on the rest of the tree to attract a […]

  • The Role of Meat and Dairy Viruses in Cancer

    “Nearly 20% of cancer cases arising worldwide can be linked to infectious agents, including viruses.” Seven viruses are now conclusively tied to human cancers, and, as new viruses enter into human populations, the incidence and causes of cancer will likely change accordingly. The foundation of modern tumor virology was laid more than a century ago […]

  • What Explains the Egg-Cancer Connection

    The reason egg consumption is associated with elevated cancer risk may be the TMAO, considered the “smoking gun” of microbiome-disease interactions. “We are walking communities comprised not only of a Homo sapiens host, but also of trillions of symbiotic commensal microorganisms within the gut and on every other surface of our bodies.” There are more […]

  • Using Green Tea to Help Prevent Cancer and Treat Cancer

    Tea consumption is associated with a reduced risk of heart disease, stroke, and premature death in general, with each additional cup of green tea a day associated with a 4-percent lower mortality risk. So, perhaps “drinking several cups of tea daily can keep the doctor away,” as well as the mortician—but what about cancer? As […]
