Grape Seed Extract Emerges as Anti-Cancer Powerhouse Thanks to Pro-Active Supplement Users

Visitors:0 | Today\\\\\'s Visitors: 0 | Total Visitors This week: 1246

The therapeutic potential of grape seed extract (GSE) as anti-oxidant, anti-hypertensive and anti-inflammatory is so well established that this natural supplement is now being used in seven on-going clinical trials, only one of which is on cancer (of the breast). But the spotlight may soon shift to GSE’s anti-cancer potential as recent landmark studies on human patients have just uncovered remarkable protective effects of GSE against three major cancers: squamous cell carcinoma and prostate and hematologic malignancies. Even more remarkable is that this breakthrough in the science of natural medicine was not due to the foresight of medical practitioners who designed the trials, but to the patients who took GSE, on their volition, as a nutritional supplement to support general health.

Sticking Plaster that Zaps Skin Cancer

LONDON – A revolutionary light-emitting sticking plaster can help zap skin cancers.

The device, called the Ambulight, is a form of photodynamic therapy (PDT) – an alternative to surgery for many forms of skin cancer – using laser, combined with a light-sensitive drug to destroy cancer cells.

PDT treatment avoids the scarring associated with surgical removal of the tumor and the need for a hospital stay. It consists of a disc-shaped pod about an inch across that house medical-grade red LED lights. The light source is attached to a controller the size of a mobile phone, the Daily Mail reports.

Photosensitizing cream is rubbed on to the skin, and the pod is attached to the skin with a plaster.

The cream takes three hours to penetrate the skin, and then the pod turns on. Three hours later the light switches off and the device can be disposed of. Patients can move freely during treatment.

Ambulight’s developer James Ferguson, professor of dermatology at Britain’s Dundee University, hopes the treatment will eventually be offered at surgeries.

“Trials have shown it to be up to 90 percent as effective as hospital treatment and it’s a lot gentler,” he says.

The Ambulight plaster has just received a European license and is now being rolled out to hospitals in Britain.
