Natural Lemon Extract is Cytotoxic to Breast Cancer Cells

A new study has shown for the first time how limonoids, natural compounds present in lemons and other citrus fruit, impede both ER+ and ER- breast cancer cell growth. This sheds new light on the importance of citrus fruit for breast cancer prevention and supports past studies which showed fruit Continue reading

Raise a Glass to “Successful Aging”

In doctors’ health advice, they often go back and forth on what to say about alcohol. Drinking in moderation has long been a subject of medical studies, as there are many health benefits associated with responsible drinking. But alcohol, which has toxic elements, is considered unhealthy by many as well — generally when used more often than “in moderation.” A new study weighs in on this issue with an interesting finding about how alcohol could lead to “successful aging.”

The information is gleaned from the long-standing Nurses’ Health Study. Among 13,894 women, investigators examined alcohol use assessed at midlife in relation to “successful aging.” This is defined as surviving to be 70 years old, not having a major chronic disease (such as heart disease, cancer, stroke, or diabetes), and having no major cognitive impairment, physical impairment, or mental health problems.

Only 11% of the women met these criteria — a testament to how difficult it is to achieve successful aging.

The results indicate that moderate drinkers were more likely to exhibit successful aging. This was particularly true for those who drank wine regularly (in moderation). This is not surprising, as red wine is considered the healthiest alcoholic choice, as it is filled with heart-healthy natural compounds. Continue reading

Drinking Coffee May Reduce Occurrences for Breast Cancer

Breast cancer is a serious concern for women. According to the National Cancer Institute, the disease took about 50,000 lives last year in the U.S. alone. But the mainstream media, as well as mainstream medicine, often treat breast cancer as something that strikes out of the blue — giving women no choice but to hope they are not one of the “unlucky” ones to get breast cancer. At the same time this subjects women to to mammography so a malignancy can be spotted early, despite the fact the actual radiation exposure associated with mammograms is known to raise the risk of breast cancer in some women (http://www.naturalnews.com/024901.html).

But here’s good news. Scientists studying natural compounds in plants are finding many may offer some level of protection against breast cancer. That means women can start taking control of their breast cancer risk by paying attention to what they eat and drink. In detailed research just published in BioMed Central’s  Continue reading
