Cancer, in a sense, can be considered to be a result of a community divorced from the Mother Nature. The survival circle in the urban market keeps the consumer of the junk food cut off from the roots using a faulty medicine system.

Expensive ‘short cuts’ in the culture, the country’s neglected agricultural policy, eatables with pesticides, and genetically modified foods have been adopted into the modern lifestyle, thus inviting the cancer.

Cancer is curable now using chemotherapy and other mechanisms designed by Allopathic medicine system. But, these mechanisms have several side effects. Therefore, the need of the hour is to apply our ancient knowledge of natural medicine and find ways for curing cancer without chemotherapy or English medicines.

Side effects of chemotherapy:

Chemotherapy is very efficient in killing rapidly growing cancer cells and has proved to be an effective means of treating cancer. But, the drawback of the chemotherapy is that apart from killing cancerous cells, there are high chances that they may also harm perfectly healthy cells, thus causing several side effects.

Hair loss and balding is the signature side effect of chemotherapy. Other side effects include anxiety, depression, swollen hands and feet, sexual dysfunction, fast tract menopause in women, digestive distress and loss in appetite, mouth sores, nausea, and vomiting.

These side effects get planted into the patient’s body and soon emerge as newer problems. The patient is then forced to consume newer medicines to treat these newer problems, thus creating a vicious circle wherein the body becomes completely dependent on the medicine.

What is often missed or deliberately ignored is the emotional trauma and the deteriorating quality of life of the patient that accompanies chemotherapy. Thus, a popular adage says: ‘You can recover from cancer, but not from chemotherapy.’

Can herbs assist in fighting cancer?

After a 2000 year old Chinese herbal formula won the recent Nobel Prize in Medicine for the year 2015, the interest for finding a safe and economical anti-cancer herbal formulations appears to have increased.

A new trend among a section of doctors is to prescribe a safe intake of a combination of chemo drugs and herbs like Simarouba. There are considerable research and breakthrough in the usage of herb for treating cancer, but they have been eclipsed by the powerful pharma lobby.

Chemotherapy does not eliminate breast, colon or lung cancers and yet chemo drug are used on these cancers. According to a health website, chemo directly damages DNA and actually boosts cancer growth. There is 68% increase in chemo drugs since 2003 but there is 75% increase in cancer projected by 2030.

What many doctors and the people in ‘cancer industry’ will not tell is that safe herbs are available at almost zero cost to counter the cancer growth activated by chemo. Instead, the pharma lobby continues to promote more allopathic medicines for imparting more side effects and more profits.

Thanks to the Indian Council of Agriculture Research & University of Agriculture Sciences, Bangalore, an alternate, safe, and fast anti-cancer dose is available today in a pure raw herb form to stop stage 1 and 2 of cancer. Stages 3 and 4 need a combination of herbs with chemotherapy or radiation to ensure better health. Dr. S. Joshi, Bangalore based scientist, engaged since 25 years in herb research, says: “Cancer is not cured with surgical instruments, but with a vegetarian diet and herbs.”

It is high time that people are made aware about herb treatments available to fight cancer that are both safe and affordable.

  • Prostate cancer is the sixth leading cause of cancer deaths among men worldwide
  • Experts claim, that the second most common cause of cancer, is rising in rural India 
  • The rural masses need to be made aware of the treatment, drugs and technologies to combat the disease.

New Delhi, September 22, 2017: Prostate cancer, the second most common cause of cancer and the sixth leading cause of cancer deaths among men worldwide, is rising in rural India, experts claim.

Cancer projection data shows that the number of cases will be doubled by 2020.

“Most of the metastatic prostate cancer cases are from rural areas. Therefore, it’s a challenge to government and doctors to decrease the risk factors and take prostate cancer risk in the rural areas very seriously,” P.N. Dogra, Professor and Head of Urology at AIIMS, said in a statement on Thursday.

The rural masses need to be made aware of the treatment, drugs and technologies to combat the disease.

“There is an urgent need to create awareness about prostate cancer threat amongst the rural population,” said Anup Kumar, Head (Department of Urology and Renal Transplant) at Safdarjung Hospital.

Safdarjung Hospital sees more than one lakh patients every month from all over the country.

Of these, 20 per cent are prostate cancer patients, in which 40 per cent are clinically localised, 30 per cent are locally advanced and 30 per cent are metastatic prostate cancer cases, Kumar said.

“Prostate cancer has become a major health problem globally during the last few decades. This disease is the second most common cause of cancer and the sixth leading cause of cancer death among men worldwide,” Dogra said.

According to the Population Based Cancer Registries in Delhi, the disease is the second most frequently diagnosed cancer among men in the national capital, accounting for about 6.78 per cent of all malignancies. (IANS)

Abdominal fat drives cancer in postmenopausal women: Study

Women in this age group, who are more vulnerable to abdominal weight gain, are now left with a new spin on their weight management priorities

  • Study suggests abdominal fat in the middle aged postmenopausal women drives cancer
  • Body fat distribution is more important as compared to the body weight, when talking about the risk of cancer in postmenopausal women
  • The best protection is to avoid central obesity 

Washington D.C. [USA], Sep 12, 2017: So if you never gave a thought to the idea of getting rid of that middle-age abdominal fat, ladies, this is the right time to start, as a recent study suggests, abdominal fat is a key factor in driving cancer for postmenopausal women.

It is important to understand the difference between the body weight and body fat distribution, since the latter is more important when talking about the risk of cancer in postmenopausal women, according to the study presented at the ESMO 2017 Congress in Madrid.

Women in this age group, who are more vulnerable to abdominal weight gain, are now left with a new spin on their weight management priorities, as a result of the findings, said Line Maersk Staunstrup, the study investigator.

“When assessing cancer risk, body mass index (BMI) and fat percentage may not be adequate measures as they fail to assess the distribution of fat mass,” she explained.

“Avoiding central obesity may confer the best protection,” she added.

The findings are from the prospective Epidemiologic Risk Factor study. The study, which is observational in nature, is a prospective cohort study designed to understand the age-related diseases in Danish, postmenopausal women, in a better way.

The study included 5,855 postmenopausal women, with the mean age being 71, who went through baseline dual-energy X-ray absorptiometry (DXA) scans to assess body fat and its composition, which have been followed for 12 years.

“The average elderly women can very much use this information, as it is known that the menopause transition initiates a shift in body fat towards the central trunk area. Therefore elderly women should be especially aware of their lifestyle when they approach the pre-menopause age,” said Mærsk Staunstrup.

“Clinicians can additionally use the information for a preventive conversation with women who are in higher risk of cancer. While clinicians have access to whole body DXA scanners at most hospitals, portable DXA scanners have become available on the commercial market and this may allow regional bone and fat scanning, however it may not be the most reliable for measuring central obesity,” she concluded.

  • A ban on electronic cigarette may increase the smuggling of the products, says Tobacco Institute of India
  • The increase in smuggling of the product might affect the quality standards, therefore, risking the lives of people using it
  • After seeing the increasing unlawful practices many countries have reversed their decision

New Delhi, August 06, 2017: Prohibition of electronic cigarettes in India will lead to a rise in smuggling with no assurance of source and quality standard, said Tobacco Institute of India (TII) on Friday.

“In face of global growth trends and the increasing consumer acceptance of such products in India, a ban on legal business in electronic cigarettes in the country will pose a serious threat to illicit trade and large-scale smuggling of these products into the country with no assurance of source and quality standard,” said a statement by TII.

E-cigarettes, also known as Electronic Nicotine Delivery Systems (ENDS), considered to be safer than tobacco cigarettes, are handheld electronic devices that try to create a feeling of smoking tobacco.

They work by heating a liquid to generate an aerosol, commonly called a “vapor”, that the user inhales.

According to the TII, 160 signatory countries under World Health Organization’s Framework Convention on Tobacco Control, including the US, the UK, and EU countries have not imposed a prohibition on electronic cigarettes.

Canada and New Zealand which had earlier prohibited ENDS have reversed their decision and allowed these products to be made available to people in their countries.

The TII says that the prohibition of e-cigarettes, would benefit illegal trade operators and promote foreign products owned by overseas entities in the absence of any domestic competition to challenge the illegal trade in these products.
