Cancer Treatment with Built-in Light

Posted by Geoff Beaty on 2 September 2021
Cancer Treatment with Built-in Light
Therapies should be highly effective and as free as possible of side effects -- a big challenge, particularly with cancer. A Chinese research team has now developed a novel form of photodynamic tumour therapy to treat deep tumours that works without external irradiation. They built the light source into the drug and is "switched on" selectively in the microenvironment of tumours, as they report in the journal Angewandte Chemie. Classic photodynamic therapy is a noninvasive cancer t...

Dietary Minerals and Cancer
Several research studies have shown that people with cancer are often deficient in several minerals. I have found these inefficiencies with many types of cancer. Often this is related to gut health and a poor diet. Within the range of magnesium intake, each 100 mg less of magnesium consumed resulted in an additional 24% increase in the incidence of pancreatic cancer. Again, who wouldn’t want to lower their risk of pancreatic cancer by 48% (or more) simply by adding more magnesium-ric...

Five-Minute Inspiratory Muscle Strength Training Lower Blood Pressure as Well as Exercise & Meds
Working out just five minutes daily via High-Resistance Inspiratory Muscle Strength Training (IMST), a practice described as "strength training for your breathing muscles," lowers blood pressure and improves some measures of vascular health as well as, or even more than, aerobic exercise or medication. The study, published in JAMA from University of Colorado, Boulder, is evidence that this ultra-time-efficient maneuver could play a key role in helping aging adults fend off cardi...

Glutathione: Physiological and Clinical Relevance
Glutathione (GSH), the most abundant intracellular low molecular weight thiol, has diverse physiological roles, Altered GSH status has been implicated in a number of chronic, acute, and age-related diseases, as well as the aging process itself. Its function as an antioxidant and determinant of cellular redox potential is crucial both for protection from reactive oxygen species as well as a signaling molecule involved in cellular proliferation, cell-cycle regulation, and apoptosis. It ...
