Diet, Exercise, and Lifestyle Affect Prostate Cancer

submitted by: admin on 09/19/2013
Dr. Saputo discusses how diet, exercise and lifestyle affect cancer. DNA is not immutable, it can be changed so that oncogenes can be turned off or on.        

Dietary Cadmium Linked to Breast Cancer

submitted by: admin on 06/26/2016
  Dietary cadmium that is found in the environment and in phosphate fertilizers has contaminated farmlands and may lead to an increased risk of breast cancer according to a study published in Cancer Research in March of 2012. A study of nearly 56,000 women conducted over 12 years showed that higher exposure to cadmium via diet was linked with a 21% increased...

Digitalis May be a Treatment for Cancer

submitted by: admin on 09/19/2013
  Recent studies on prostate cancer show that digoxin may not only slow cancer growth but also induce apoptosis. Studies in the early 1900s on breast cancer showed that people on digitalis rarely have cancer progress or lead to death. This rather startling information has not made it into mainstream medicine and for the most part digitalis is not used...

Do Antioxidants Preserve Youth?

submitted by: admin on 09/19/2013
  Antioxidants neutralize free radicals and that helps us fight inflammation and disease. However, stimulation from free radicals also extends life by activating cellular repair genes! Antioxidants inhibit this response. Some antioxidants, such as beta carotene and retinol can actually shorten life in certain settings. A retrospective review of 68 studies...

Do Biopsies Spread Cancer?

submitted by: admin on 01/23/2015
A Mayo Clinic article published in the journal, GUT, in January of 2015 looked at whether or not biopsies of cancers caused spreading of pancreatic cancers. What they found was very surprising. Not only did the cancers not spread the but the survival rate if there was a biopsy was much longer! Wow! This is a bit hard to believe, but it is what they found...

Do Cell Phones Affect the Brain?

submitted by: admin on 09/20/2013
The prevention of disease means decreasing our Electro Magnetic Field.  Electro Magnetic pollution should be a concern for everybody. Just what effect does EMF have on our bodies?  Does using a cell phone increase our risk of brain cancer?            

Do Familial Precancerous Polyps Predict Colon Cancer?

submitted by: admin on 06/18/2016
When do you need a colonoscopy? An article in Annals of Internal Medicine in May of 2012 stated that there's insufficient evidence to recommend earlier or more frequent colonoscopies for people who have a first degree relative with a precancerous polyp unless the polyp is advanced. About 30-50% of people have polyps that are precancerous, but only 5-10% warrant...

Do Mammograms Do More Harm Than Good?

submitted by: admin on 09/24/2018
Mammograms under age 50 are controversial. The prestigious Cochrane Study Group concluded that they lead to overdiagnosis and overtreatment. Mammograms use x-rays to differentiate tissue density that is normal or cancerous; this is very difficult in women under age 50 because they have dense breast tissue that is similar to that of breast cancers. It takes almost...

Do Prostate Biopsies Increase Mortality?

submitted by: admin on 09/20/2013
A recent article shows that people with prostate biopsies have a slightly increased death rate. The reasons are not known. We know that cells are spread every time a biopsy is taken, however, those cells do not survive.          

Do Spices Prevent Cancer?

submitted by: admin on 05/27/2016
The spice, saffron, shows promise in preventing liver cancer in animal models. Rats treated with the chemical carcinogen, diethylnitrosamine (DEN) there was an inhibition of cell proliferation and stimulation of apoptosis, both of which are important cancer treatment mechanisms. Chronic infection with hepatitis B or C are major risk factors for primary hepatocellular...

Do We Overuse Heart Scans?

submitted by: admin on 09/20/2013
Medical radiation is dangerous and heart scans should not be used unless clearly needed because of the risk of cancer. Conflicts of interest lead to it being overused. The accuracy and reliability are also in question.          

Do You Need a Brain Scan if You Have Headaches

submitted by: admin on 04/03/2014
According to an article out of the Univerity of Michigan Medical Center that was published in March of 2014 in the journal, Internal Medicine, we spend about a billion dollars a year for unnecessary brain scans (MRIs and CT scans) on people who have headaches. Their research showed that the incidence of brain tumors, brain aneurysms, and AV malformations...

Does Cholesterol Prevent Cancer?

submitted by: admin on 09/20/2013
  Cholesterol binding proteins bind and transport cholesterol within the cell much like lipoproteins carry it in the blood stream. When the receptor sites for cholesterol in the cell are left vacant because cholesterol levels are too low, cell growth is increased. Could this be part of the reason why statins have an increased all cause mortality when...

Dr. Saputo's Top 10

submitted by: admin on 02/16/2015
  Alzheimer's Disease   Alzheimer's disease (AD) is like an electrical "brown out" that develops as energy production in certain brain cells begins to fail. Using nutritional tools makes it possible to resuscitate mitochondrial energy production and either stabilize or improve symptoms. Drugs are of known minimal value...

Ductal Carcinoma in situ: Cancer or Benign?

submitted by: admin on 09/24/2018
Between 30 and 50% of new breast cancer diagnoses are found on mammography screenings and are classified as ductal carcinoma in situ, or DCIS. Most of these "cancers" are not cancer at all. In fact about 97% are benign lesions that can be followed over time quite safely. Most cases of DCIS would be better off under-diagnosed and under-treated. Unfortunately,...

Electro-Smog

Do cell phones cause brain cancer? Are the high levels electromagnetic fields we are exposed to important. The research behind these issues is explored.          

Emphysema Overview

  This is an overview of what emphysema is and how we get it. Approaches to treatment are reviewed and steps to prevent the progression of disease offered.          

Epigenetics of Breast Cancer

submitted by: admin on 06/25/2016
  The Institute of Medicine (IOM) reviewed data about possible environmental risks for developing breast cancer. They felt that pesticides, beauty products, heousehold chemicals, and plastics might or might not be risk factors for breasts cancer. They did agree that medical x-rays were a clear risk for developing breast cancer. They recommended that...

Estrogen Blockers for Breast Cancer Treatment

submitted by: admin on 09/21/2013
  Estrogen blockers (Tamoxifen) are often used to treat breast cancer with estrogen sensitive tumors in premenopausal women. Yet there are problems such as an increased rate of uterine cancer and clotting problems. In postmenopausal women, most estrogen does not come from the ovary; it comes from estrogen production in fat tissues and from the conversion...

Ethical Issues in Medical Research

submitted by: admin on 09/21/2013
Yale School of Medicine researchers found a clinical trial with neurontin was a seeding trial used by Big Pharma to promote the drug and increase prescriptions. Seeding trials are not illegal but are unethical because they offer no research. They took advantage of 2700 patients and 772 investigators to complete the publication. These people gained nothing for...
