“Cannabidiol, a Major Non-Psychotropic Cannabis Constituent Enhances Fracture Healing and Stimulates Lysyl Hydroxylase Activity in Osteoblasts” by team of researchers headed by Yankel Gabet, DMD, PhD, Bone Research Laboratory, Department of Anatomy and Anthropology, Sackler Faculty of Medicine, Tel Aviv University, Tel Aviv 69978, Israel.

A new study published in the Journal of Bone and Mineral Research says that a component of marijuana known as Cannabidiol (CBD) “significantly helps heal bone fractures” by speeding up the process. It also strengthens bones, protecting them against future injuries.
This research could lead to new treatment options for people suffering from certain bone-related diseases, including osteoporosis, which causes 8.9 million fractures annually across the world, according to the International Osteoporosis Foundation.

The team of researchers at Tel Aviv University tested the effect of THC and CBD separately on rat subjects, discovering a connection between our bodies’ cannabinoid receptors and bone growth stimulation. Continue Reading »

When conventional cancer medicine fails to produce positive outcomes, a humble little seed comes to the rescue by Sayer Ji,  founder of Greenmedinfo.com, a reviewer at the International Journal of Human Nutrition and Functional Medicine, Co-founder and CEO of Systome Biomed, Vice Chairman of the Board of the National Health Federation, Steering Committee Member of the Global Non-GMO Foundation.

A new study published in the International Journal of Oncology illustrates an important shift occurring in medical research today, namely, a growing recognition that conventional treatments like chemotherapy, taken alone, are failing to produce positive results and that the use of natural substances may be an indispensable way to improve outcomes.

In the study titled, Combining doxorubicin with a phenolic extract from flaxseed oil: Evaluation of the effect on two breast cancer cell lines, Italian researchers sought to evaluate the possible synergistic role of an extract of flaxseed in combination with the conventional chemo-drug doxorubicin in a number of breast cancer cell lines. https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/28101573

Breast cancer is one of the most frequently diagnosed forms of cancer and different treatments are used to block its progression. However, it still represents a very common cause of death in women. Doxorubicin (Dox) is reported as an effective agent in breast cancer treatment nonetheless it induces many side‑effects. For this reason, many laboratories are engaged in understanding how it is possible to decrease the drug concentration, considering that one of the possible solutions is to use drug synergy, combining it with natural substances. Recently we showed that a phenolic extract from flaxseed (FS) oil, named PEFSO, induced on MCF‑7 cell line an increase of apoptosis with related modification of G0/G1 phase cell cycle, and the activation of signaling and pro‑oxidant pathways. In this study we present data on the combined effect of Dox and PEFSO on two different breast cancer cell lines to define the conditions to use lower doses of this chemotherapeutic agent. We report the data relating to the ability of this mixture to induce cytotoxicity and apoptosis, cell cycle modification, mitochondrial membrane depolarization and activation of extrinsic and/or intrinsic apoptotic pathway.

They also noted that a commonly used cancer drug known as doxorubicin is notorious for its many side effects. You can review the primary literature on dozens of doxorubicin’s known side effects on our database. The researchers hypothesized that one way around this problem would be to reduce the amount of doxorubicin used by combining it with a safer, more natural compound.

In a previous study, the researchers showed a phenolic extract of flaxseed oil resulted in a number of chemotherapeutic effects (increase in apoptosis, G0/G1 phase cell cycle, and the activation of signaling and pro‑oxidant pathways). The new study looked at the combined effect of doxorubicin and a phenolic extract of flaxseed oil on two different breast cancer cell lines, focusing on what conditions are ideal for using lower doses doxorubicin. They reported the experiment a success:

“We report the data relating to the ability of this mixture to induce cytotoxicity and apoptosis, cell cycle modification, mitochondrial membrane depolarization and activation of extrinsic and/or intrinsic apoptotic pathway.”

While this only a preliminary investigation, and does not have the gravitas of a human clinical trial, flaxseed has been subject to extensive research on its chemopreventive and chemotherapeutic properties. We’re reported on this in depth in previous articles, such as:

We have also done a lot of advocacy around the topic of conventional treatment failure, including the problems of cancer overdiagnosis, overtreatment, and the failure of modern oncology to address the root causes of cancer and the role that cancer stem cells play in the process of carcinogenesis and treatment failure.

There is a profound shift occurring in the medical research community today. With the growing awareness that food is not just a source of energy and material building blocks for the body, but capable of being a form of medicinal or nutrigenomic information, it is no longer considered far fetched to look at something as commonplace, and benign as flaxseed as having disease-resolving power.

With the epidemic of disease continuously wrought on to children in 2016 with a root cause of exposure to toxic chemicals in the environment it is time to remind ourselves of the importance of the research publication called the Presidents Cancer Panel Study 2010. This research is so critical for the health of our children and grandchildren. The research examines the impact of environmental factors on cancer and is subtitled “Reducing Environmental Cancer Risk, what we can do now.”

We need a regulatory approach to children’s health eliminating potential hazards without accepting a level of harm. Chemical companies must prove that their products will have no adverse effect on children’s health before the chemical is approved for use by EPA.

Household Chemical Exposures and the Risk of Canine Malignant Lymphoma, a Model for Human Non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma

Epidemiologic studies of companion animals offer an important opportunity to identify risk factors for cancers in animals and humans. Canine malignant lymphoma (CML) has been established as a model for non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma (NHL). Previous studies have suggested that exposure to environmental chemicals may relate to development of CML..

Conclusions. In summary, findings of this study suggest that exposure to certain types of lawn care chemicals may increase the risk of malignant lymphoma in dogs. Additional studies are needed to further evaluate the effects of specific chemical components of lawn care products on risk of canine malignant lymphoma, and may potentially contribute to human NHL as well.

Results suggest that use of some lawn care chemicals may increase the risk of CML. Additional analyses are needed to evaluate whether specific chemicals in these products may be related to risk of CML, and perhaps to human NHL as well.

What Killed Jack McCall?
A California Farmer Dies and a Case Against Monsanto Takes Root

California farmer Jack McCall, used Monsanto Roundup [glyphosate] on his 20-acre fruit and vegetable farm for nearly 30 years. When he stopped using Roundup after learning of glyphosate’s link to cancer, McCall had already developed cancer symptoms.

On December 26, 2015, Jack McCall passed away after suffering a massive stroke due to complications from a rare version of non-Hodgkin lymphoma. His widow, Teri McCall has filed a wrongful death lawsuit against Monsanto, claiming exposure to Roundup caused her late husband to develop cancer. The lawsuit further alleges that Monsanto purposely downplayed the cancer risk associated with Roundup exposure.

So far, more than 900 people across the United States, who have been diagnosed with non-Hodgkin lymphoma, have sued Monsanto. Thousands more have hired attorneys and their lawsuits will be filed in due time.

The Clothes You Wear
If you’re an environmentally conscious person and make an effort to consume products that respect the planet and have a lighter carbon footprint, this should extend far beyond just the food you eat. Have you given any thought to the clothes you buy? What you wear? Global fashion/apparel is a huge three trillion dollar industry and is the second largest polluting industry on earth (after oil). The impact on the environment throughout the extensive supply chain are devastating and in my view, not discussed enough .
