Omega-3 Fatty Acids, Budwig Diet & their Antitumor Activity

Summary: This is a long post so here is a short summary: Omega-3 fatty acids have anti-inflammatory, antiproliferative, proapoptotic, antiangiogenetic, anti-invasion, and antimetastatic properties. Because Omega-3 fatty acids are pushing out of the cancer cells the glutathione much needed for the cancer cell survival, Omega-3 fatty acids can be also combined with chemo and with that increase or enable chemo

High Dose Vitamin C & Cancer

Background: L-ascorbic acid (C6H8O6), known as Vitamin C, has a variety of functions in humans, some of which are not yet fully understood. It was discovered in 1930 by Albert Szent-Györgyi (Hungarian, half Romanian by descent), who as a result of this discovery received  Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine in 1937. Note, that Albert Szent-Györgyi is the same scientist

Hyaluronic Acid Modulation: Preventing Recurrence or Supporting Other Therapies – Otherwise Better Not

Recently, I was reading this article Why cancer drugs can’t take the pressure, arguing that “A major reason why cancer drugs fail is that they cannot penetrate the high-pressure environment of solid tumors.” and that the reason for that is a “naturally occurring molecule called hyaluronic acid, primarily responsible for generating elevated gel-fluid pressures in tumors.”

Curcumin: A Star in Cancer Treatment Field

Summary: When searching for some of the most effective anti cancer natural extracts accessible, low cost and non toxic, Curcumin will be one of the first we will come across. Curcumin is an extract from Tumernic a yellow-pigmented curry spice that is often used in Indian foods. Curcumin relevance in cancer was so intensively researched so that

pH in Cancer & Tumor Acidification: A Top Treatment Strategy

Summary: pH and Cancer is an intensively discussed subject both in the alternative treatment arena and fortunately more and more in the scientific arena. In terms of treatments, when we speak about pH in cancer I am thinking of treatments involving e.g. the well known Sodium Bicarbonate, Cesium Chloride, Germanium, etc. I am also thinking of diets such

Pyrvinium Pamoate: An Anti Worm Drug with Important Anti Cancer Potential

Summary: Pyrvinium Pamoate (PP) (a quinoline-derived cyanine dye) is an relatively non toxic anthelmintic drug, FDA-approved, sold over the counter in countries like Sweden, Norway, Denmark used to treat pinworms in humans and animals. During the recent years this compound has been shown to effectively inhibit various cancer cells types such as brain, colon/colorectal, breast, prostate, etc. and

How to potentially enhance Chemotheraphy effectivness

It is well know that tumors often develop resistance to (chemo) therapies via various mechanisms. Some of the mechanisms are well understood today and there are various drugs or supplements that may have the ability to suppress some of these resistance mechanisms. Bellow, I tried to cover most of the known resistance mechanism and indicate

Cancer addiction to Cyst(e)ine & Lowering Glutathione inside cancer cells

Recently, I came across this nice article (Ref) which is in turn based on a recent publication (Ref.) arguing that in some types of renal cancer cells, cystine deprivation “presents an attractive therapeutic opportunity that may bypass the apoptosis-evading mechanisms characteristic of drug-resistant tumor cells.” However, as we will see Cysteine is relevant not only in renal cancer but in most of
