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

Citric Acid Inhibits Fermentation and Kills Cancer in Humans

Background:  Citric acid exists in large amounts in a variety of fruits and vegetables, most notably citrus fruits and was first time isolated from lemon juice.  Its salt form, Citrate, is an intermediate in the citric acid cycle (also called TCA cycle, TriCarboxylic Acid cycle, Krebs cycle, Szent-Györgyi – Krebs cycle), a central metabolic pathway for animals, plants and

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

Artemisia Annua, Artemisinin & 2015 Nobel Prize in Medicine

Background:  Artemisinin is a natural extract, coming out of a plant called Artemisia annua (sweet wormwood) used as a drug to treat malaria. It saved million of lives so far and as a results, its discoverer Mrs. Tu Youyou received the 2015 Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine (Ref.). Its discovery goes back to 1969. While the whole world

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

Clostridium Novyi Bacteria as Cancer Therapy

Background: During 1890s, dr. William B. Coley discovered that occasionally, some cancer patients who underwent surgery and developed a bacterial infection, became completely cured of their tumors. This, made people think about the potential of bacteria to treat cancer. Half a century latter, researchers tried to fight cancer using an anaerobic bacterium, Clostridium butyricum. While this method worked,

A Natural Painkiller and Anti-Inflammatory: Palmitoylethanolamide (PEA)

Summary: PEA is a body-own fatty compound, and is produced by our own living cells to restore balance in chronic pain and chronic inflammation. Its anti-inflammatory and painkilling properties are known in science many decades since the first description of this compound in 1957. in 1993 the Nobel price winner professor Rita Levi-Montalcini pointed out

Phlorizin & Phloretin: a powerfull glucose transport inhibitor

Summary  I know and like Phloretin since long time ago but today I came across a very interesting (old) patent that is based on Phlorizin (a derivative of Phloretin) as an anti cancer treatment. Based on the science behind, safety and case reports, I think this is very interesting and below I will share the information

Phosphoethanolamine & Meclizine: inhibiting an enzyme required to form the building blocks of membranes

Summary Actually, the title (inhibiting an enzyme required to form the building blocks of membranes) refers to Meclizine since as we will shortly discuss below, Phosphoethanolamine acts (probably) on mitochondria. The compound, Phosphoethanolamine, has been shown to kill tumor cells (A. K. Ferreira et al. Anticancer Res.32, 95€“104; 2012) at the University of S£o Paulo in Brazil. As a result some

Salinomycin: One of the best

Summary Salinomycin is as an antimicrobial and anticoccidial antibiotic. In 2009, a groundbreaking result was published in the scientific journal Cell (Ref), showing that Salinomycin can be effective in killing the cancer stem cells (CSC), the cancer cell population that is responsible for chemo resistance and metastasis. Although the study was focused on breast cancer, Salinomycin
