Without a shadow of a doubt, cancer is the deadliest disease that humans encounter in their lives. With doctors and medical scientists working round the clock, tirelessly, we have somewhat been able to give scant relief to the dying patient.

‘Raising awareness of symptoms and that childhood cancer is not rare, is the first hurdle to jump,’ read the inspiring post of this mother who lost her child to cancer in 2015.
(NaturalNews) One of the most exciting developments in the war on cancer has just been published in the Journal of Acupuncture and Meridian Studies, where new research shows that the homeopathic remedy, Lycopodium Clavatum (a spore bearing plant from the clubmoss family), has an anti-cancer effect on infected cells while protecting normal blood cells.
The report by the Boiron Laboratory in France and the University of Kalyani in India reveals that highly diluted Lycopodium Clavatum remedies (LC-5C and LC-15C) are capable of inducing ‘apoptosis’ (cellular death) in cervical cancer cells, signifying their possible use as a supportive medicine in cancer therapy.
The $200 billion dollar per year cancer industry is desperate to convince you that chemotherapy, radiation, toxic drugs and surgery are the only proven treatments for the disease, faced as it is today, with rising demand for complementary and alternative cancer medicines.

On the basis of current smoking patterns, with a global average of about 50% of young men and 10% of young women becoming smokers and relatively few stopping, annual tobacco-attributable deaths will rise from about 5 million in 2010 to more than 10 million a few decades hence,1-3 as the young smokers of today reach middle and old age. This increase is due partly to population growth and partly to the fact that, in some large populations, generations in which few people smoked substantial numbers of cigarettes throughout adult life are being succeeded by generations in which many people did so. There were about 100 million deaths from tobacco in the 20th century, most in developed countries.2,3 If current smoking patterns persist, tobacco will kill about 1 billion people this century, mostly in low- and middle-income countries. About half of these deaths will occur before 70 years of age.1-4
The 2013 World Health Assembly called on governments to reduce the prevalence of smoking by about a third by 2025,5 which would avoid more than 200 million deaths from tobacco during the remainder of the century.2,3 Price is the key determinant of smoking uptake and cessation.6-9Worldwide, a reduction of about a third could be achieved by doubling the inflation-adjusted price of cigarettes, which in many low- and middle-income countries could be achieved by tripling the specific excise tax on tobacco. Other interventions recommended by the World Health Organization (WHO) Framework Convention on Tobacco Control (FCTC) and the WHO six-point MPOWER initiative4 could also help reduce consumption7,8 and could help make substantial increases in specific excise taxes on tobacco politically acceptable. Without large price increases, a reduction in smoking by a third would be difficult to achieve.
The WHO has also called for countries to achieve a 25% reduction between 2008 and 2025 in the probability of dying from noncommunicable disease between 30 and 70 years of age.10 Widespread cessation of smoking is the most important way to help achieve this goal, because smoking throughout adulthood substantially increases mortality from several major noncommunicable diseases (and from tuberculosis).1-3,11-19
To help achieve a large reduction in smoking in the 2010s or 2020s, governments, health professionals, journalists, and other opinion leaders should appreciate the full eventual hazards of smoking cigarettes from early adulthood, the substantial benefits of stopping at various ages, the eventual magnitude of the epidemic of tobacco-attributable deaths if current smoking patterns persist, and the effectiveness of tax increases and other interventions to reduce cigarette consumption.
LONDON: The Y chromosome, which distinguishes males from females at the genetic level, appeared some 180 million years ago, according to a new study.
In humans and other mammals, the difference between sexes depends on one single element of the genome: the Y chromosome.
It is present only in males, where the two sexual chromosomes are X and Y, whereas women have two X chromosomes. Thus, the Y is ultimately responsible for all the morphological and physiological differences between males and females.

WASHINGTON: People born with low birth weights and those breastfed for shorter periods are more likely to develop chronic inflammation that contributes to heart disease as adults, a new study has warned.
Researchers from the Northwestern University study evaluated how levels of C-reactive protein (CRP), a key bio-marker of inflammation, linked back to birth weight and breastfeeding duration for nearly 7,000 24- to 32-year-olds.
The study not only showed both lower birth weights and shorter duration of breastfeeding predicted higher CRP levels in young adults, and thus higher disease risk.
The research also found dramatic racial, ethnic and education disparities. More educated mothers were more likely to breastfeed and to give birth to larger babies, as were whites and Hispanics.
The data points to the importance of promoting better birth outcomes and increased duration of breastfeeding to affect public health among adults.
Such awareness could make a difference in eroding the intractable social disparities in adult health outcomes associated with inflammation, according to the study.
“The findings about breastfeeding and birth weight are particularly illuminating,” said Thomas McDade, lead author of the study.
“The rates for many adult diseases completely mirror rates of low birth weight and low breastfeeding uptake and duration,” he said.
Breastfeeding is known to provide nutritional and immunological support to infants following delivery and affects immune development and metabolic processes related to obesity – two potential avenues of influence on adult CRP production.
“This research helps us understand and appreciate the importance of breast feeding, especially for low-weight infants,” said Alan Guttmacher, MD, director of the Eunice Kennedy Shriver National Institute of Child Health and Human Development.
“The results suggest that breast feeding may reduce a major risk factor for heart disease, well into adulthood,” said Guttmache.

NEW YORK: In a path-breaking discovery, biologists have created a new technology for modifying human cells to create therapeutics that could travel the body and selectively target and kill cancer cells without disrupting healthy cells.
This device is a protein biosensor that sits on the surface of a cell and can be programmed to sense specific external factors.

There is another reason why you should not smoke, especially if you are fond of coffee and tasty food, as smoking harms taste buds, research has confirmed.
Smokers do not enjoy their coffee despite the strong, bitter taste of caffeine being easily detected. It seems their ability to taste is impaired by toxic chemicals found in tobacco, even after they have quit smoking.
