FDA-Approved Cancer Drugs May Actually ‘Induce Tumors’: Could Therapy Raise Risk Of Cancer Recurrence?

FDA-Approved Cancer Drugs May Actually 'Induce Tumors' Could Therapy Raise Risk Of Cancer Recurrence

A new research method has revealed that a number of cancer drugs may lead to tumor recurrence, illuminating a counterintuitive factor behind the disease that is expected to kill nearly 600,000 Americans in 2014. Dr. Michele Markstein, a researcher at the University of Massachusetts Amherst and lead author of new study, said that the finding suggests that some FDA-approved chemotherapeutic drugs may induce a so-called hyper-proliferation of certain stem cells. "We discovered that several chemotherapeutics that stop fast growing tumors have the opposite effect on stem cells in the same animal, causing them to divide too rapidly,” she explained. Read More »

Satisfy your sweet tooth without calories? Artificial sweeteners give you all the benefits of sugar without the gut-busting consequences. It's the perfect win-win. Except when it's not. Artificial sweeteners have been shrouded in controversy ever since saccharin, the first no-cal sweetener, was discovered back in 1878. Even then, public health advocates questioned whether these lab-created sweeteners were truly safe; saccharin, after all, was discovered by a chemist working with coal tar, a carcinogenic material.

Intravenous Vitamin C – A Cancer Killer The FDA Wants Banned

Vitamin C has a broad spectrum antioxidant function with the ability to protect cell structures and DNA from free radical damage. Vitamin C is remarkably safe even in enormously high doses. Compared to commonly used prescription drugs, side effects are virtually nonexistent. No matter how high the concentration, vitamin C does not harm healthy cells. Yet, through an array of enzymatic and metabolic reactions, vitamin C has an impressive ability to protect and treat and wide range of diseases, including cancer.
