Colon cancer and colitis worsen as a result of frying oil consumption in mouse studies.

Wednesday, August 28th, 2019

In a new study published in Cancer Prevention Research researchers concluded that feeding frying oil to mice exaggerated colonic inflammation, enhanced tumor growth and worsened gut leakage, spreading bacteria or toxic bacterial products into the blood stream. Researchers said their research does not say that frying oil can cause cancer but that it suggests fried foods may exacerbate and advance conditions of the colon. “If somebody has IBD or colon cancer and they eat this kind of food, there is a chance it will make the diseases more aggressive.”

In their study researchers used a real-world sample of canola oil, in which falafel had been cooked at 325 degrees farenheit in a standard commercial fryer at a restaurant in Massachusetts. The oil had been analyzed for an array of chemical reactions during the frying process and characterized according to a fatty acid profile, the level of free fatty acids and the status of oxidation.  A combination of the frying oil and fresh oil was added to the powdered diet of one group of mice and the control was fed the powder with only fresh oil mixed in. Rersearches said “We tried to mimic the human being’s diet.” They found that adding the frying oil to the diet worsened colonic inflammation, colon tumor growth, and gut leakage. For example, tumor growth doubled in size from the control to study groups.

To determine if oxidation of polmunsaturated fatty acids, which occur when the oil is heated, is instrumental in the inflammattory effects, polar compounds from the frying oil was isolated and fed to the mice.  Results were similar to those from the experiment in which mice were fed frying oil. This suggested that the polswar compounds mediated the inflammatory effects. Researchers cautioned tyhat more research is needed but suggested people with inflammatory bowel disease eat less friend foods.

Glioblastoma Research Shows Tumor Cell Death in Cell and Animal Studies Using Antihistamines.

Wednesday, July 17th, 2019

A new study published in EMBO Molecular Medicine Journal concluded that “antihistamines and other drugs that increase the permeability of the lysomal membrane can be considered as an enhancing therapy for patiets with glioblastoma alongside established treatments.” In the research they found that “glioblastoma cells depend upon the expression of a gene which produces the MDGI protein (small fatty acid binding protein). Inhibiting of this gene results in the death of the tumor cells.” The absence of MDGI causes instability in the membranes of lysosomes, cleaning organelles found inside tumor cells, and in turn, resulting in the leakage of acidic and proteolytic enzymes contained in the lysosomes into the cytoplasm, initiating cell death. Reasearchers said their research “demonstrates that MDGI  is a key factor regulating and maintaining the structure of the lysosomal membrane. This is the first gene found to regulate the stability of the membrane.”  Their results are especially interesting because they found that cell death caused by leakage in the lysosomes of glioblastoma can be activated by using drugs that cross the blood-brain barrier” and in this study they used the antihistamine clemastine.

In cell cultures the antihistamine in lysosome-initiated cell death in glioblastoma cells were at concentrations that has no significant effect on healthy cells of different types.  In mouse models it was effective in reducing the spread of brain tumors and improving the survival rates of the animals. In the most invasive brain tumor model, the antihistamine resulted in the disappearance of the entire tumor.

Nancy Novack, 15 Year Stage IV Ovarian Cancer Survivor, Helps Others Through Nancy’s List Foundation.

Sunday, June 30th, 2019

My guest, Nancy Novack, was diagnosed with stage IV ovarian cancer in 2004. It had metastasized into her liver. She was too happily innocent about the cancer world and said two now-remarkable things: “Thank goodness, it is not appendicitis,” and “What is stage V?”

Nancy says she is oftentimes asked what she did that was so unique, so mysterious that she survived a lethal dose of cancer, the silent killer as ovarian cancer is often called. She says she was extraordinarily fortunate to have an excellent psychologist who worked closely with her to define and refine her personal relationship to her own cancer. She was blessed with a magnificent A-team of friends and family and so many angels that embraced her. She says the opening of my heart to new loves and old brought forth an attitude of blessed gratitude that I had never known before. When I read and re-read the stories written by cancer survivors, I see the universality of the attitude of gratitude in the process of healing.”

Nancy’s mission since her “cancer journey” is all about determining the unmet needs of cancer patients, especially the emotional aspects, and doing her best to find a way to fill them. She is a psychologist and has significant concerns that the medical community does not address the levels of anxiety and stress and existential chaos that come with a cancer diagnosis … all of which get in the way of healing. Her Foundation Nancy’s List supports the emotional well-being of all those who are living with cancer … the patients and those who love and care for them.

Her path started with finding ways to assist cancer patients with a national listing of financial assistance programs available to the cancer community.  She was profoundly troubled that these kindred souls were experiencing so much fear and anxiety about their finances. How would that reality affect the possibility of their recovery? She vowed to make a difference and knew that financial assistance was out there somewhere and she was determined to make it accessible. She received a 501 ©(3) non-profit status in 2006 and launched her first website. Nancy’s List was intended to be simply a list of financial resources and her intention was to educate cancer patients and their loved ones and the healing professionals who serve them about the accessibility of these programs.

At the same time, she created a community call-to-action in the San Francisco Bay Area to reach out and support the courage, bravery, and resilience of our neighbors.  Through the Nancy’s List programs, cancer patients and their loved ones found community, strength, courage, pleasure, and healing relationships. There is healing power when one is connected to the larger community, especially when you are experiencing fear, loneliness, isolation, and uncertainty. It means everything to know your neighbors are looking out for you. And it is a very good thing to meet kindred souls along the path.

I Am With You: Love Letters to Cancer Patients is a powerful book for the newly diagnosed patient, for those who are going through treatment or have entered remission, for loved ones, and for everyone else in the world.  She created the anthology with 42 authors who truly share her vision, passion, and mission. It brings hope and courage to patients when they need inspiration, when they are feeling the loneliness and fear and anger and loss that go hand in hand with a cancer diagnosis, when they need comfort and a warm heart and a hand to hold. The book offers connection to kindred spirits who ‘know’.

Nancy is now developing a comprehensive national directory of integrative healing practitioners who offer their services (and their souls) to deepen the healing process.  The goal is for all cancer patients to have the opportunity to experience healing other than their dreadful visits to the infusion rooms, radiation offices, and more. She wants to educate patients and healing professionals about the enormous benefits of integrative healing services AND the accessibility of these therapies. The process is very simple. They write a blurb, add a jpg and contact info, email Nancy at Nancy@NancysList.org, and she post it on the comprehensive directory.

Radiation Increases Cardiac Problems for Lung Cancer Patients

Wednesday, June 26th, 2019

A new study published in the Journal of the American College of Carediology concluded that thoracic radiotherapy for lung cancer patients led to more than 10% of patients having heart attacks, heart failure, and other cardiac problems. Rates for those considered at high risk for cardiac problems were even higher for those with no history of cardiovascular disease.

In the study researchers evaluated data for 748 patients with non-small cell lung cancer and found a direct correlation between increaqsed dosages of heart radiation exposure and the riusk of cardiac problems. Researchers concluded that patients should receive lower dosages of radiation than national guidelines recomment and should be 10 gray units compared to 20. In addition, researchers recommended finding ways to mitigate the harmful effects of radiation.

Vitam D Increase Longevity of Cancer Patients

Wednesday, June 12th, 2019

New research presented at the American Society of Clinical Oncology annual meeting earlier this month concluded that Vitamin D. if taken for at  least 3 years could extend cancer patients lives. Although the research showed vitamin D could extend the lives of cancer patients it did not show it could prevent cancer.  Researchers looked at data from cancer prevention from more than 79,000 patients in multiple studies randomlly comparing the use of vitamin D to a placebo over 3 years and relating this to cancer incidence and mortality.

Differences in mortality data for the two groups was statistically significant and showed the value of vitamin D for cancer patients.  Researchers stated that although the results are promising they do not identify the dosage and levels in the blood needed to obtain positive And they reaffrirmed that results showed that at least 3 years of taking vitamin D were necessare to show results. results.
