Aneuploidy and Cancer with David Rasnick Part 1

submitted by: admin on 05/12/2015
  Theories about the cause of cancer are many but the answers are not clear. Aneuploidy is an imbalance of the number of chromosomes, In cancer they usually range between 60-90 chromosomes rather than 46. No two cancers are the same. Normal cells do not de-differentiate, they progress in an abnormal way. Gene mutations are too small to cause cancer.                

Aneuploidy and Cancer with David Rasnick Part 2

submitted by: admin on 05/12/2015
  It is the number of chromosomes, not genes, that lead to the massive changes required for cancer. There are no confirmed cases of normal diploid cancer. Cancer cells are damaged cells that are trying to survive and as a consequence they cause disease. Gene theories do not explain the progression of cancer.                

Aneuploidy and Cancer with David Rasnick Part 3

submitted by: admin on 05/12/2015
  How aneuploidy affects the cancer treatments we use is discussed. Today's treatment is designed to kill cells, mostly cancer cells. Antibodies against certain abnormal genes do not work--Gleevac and Herceptin are examples. Aneuploidy explains drug resistance and why treatments targeted to certain genes cannot work.

Antioxidants and Cancer Treatment

submitted by: admin on 05/13/2015
Cancer is a disease of lack of energy production. It is associated with loss of mitochondrial ATP production caused by oxidative stress. Antioxidants are the antidote to cancer development. This is why we sometimes see success with IV vitamin C treatment. Caveolin 1 is a marker that predicts survival. The question then is would it be worthwhile to treat with...

Are Pelvic Exams Over done?

submitted by: admin on 05/19/2015
According to a study done a UCSF and published in the American Journal of Obstetrics and Gynecology the pelvic exam is performed for reasons that are medically unjustified.

submitted by: admin on 12/28/2016
There is an epidemic of cancer in the world, and this epidemic is not under control. With the signing of the National Cancer Act of 1971 by then US President Richard Nixon, the war against cancer was officially declared. Some 40 years later, we have spent hundreds of billions of dollars on cancer research and the return on this investment has been negligible....

Aspirin Cuts Cancer Risk

submitted by: admin on 10/26/2015
  Aspirin has been found to protect against colon cancer and many other solid cancers. However, aspirin also causes GI bleeding in almost everyone over the long haul.

Avastin: Good or Bad?

submitted by: admin on 09/19/2013
Avastin for breast cancer is controversial because it does not extend life or its quality and it is expensive. It costs $88,000 per year of treatment. There are conflicts of interest for the oncologists who make a profit from the chemotherapies they sell to their patients. Big pharma is insensitive to what this drug actually does; it is primarily interested in...

Beta Carotone May Increase Lung Cancer in Smokers

submitted by: admin on 09/19/2013
Taking high doses of beta carotene, vitamin A, or lutein may increase the risk of lung cancer, especially in smokers. Would eating too many carrots do this? Supplements are over used; we should be more dependent on healthy foods and a healthy lifestyle. Too often we're looking for alternatives to eating a healthy diet.        

Biennial Mammograms are Sufficient to Screen for Breast Cancer

submitted by: admin on 06/18/2016
  According to researchers at the University of California Medical Center, and published in the March issue of Internal Medicine, screening for breast cancer every two years is preferrable to yearly screens when doing mammograms.

Bile - Not Acid - Causes Barrett's Esophagus

submitted by: admin on 09/19/2013
A study published in Annals of Surgery in April of 2012 showed that bile, not acid, is the cause for Barrett's esophagus and esophageal cancer. This finding is especially important because current drug therapies for GERD focus largely on acid control. Drugs that block acid production might actually make the risk for esophageal cancer higher. Research...
