Most alternative cancer treatment are diet based and are performing better in treating cancer patients without leaving any serious side effects as opposed to the conventional cancer treatment methods.

Some of these diets can be used alongside chemotherapy as well as radiation therapy to ease the side effects of chemotherapy during cancer treatment. Good nutrition has always been emphasized by doctors and other nutritionists as a better way to prevent or treat cancer.

Protecting the heart from cancer therapy

Battling cancer can have long-term effects on the heart.

Treating cancer isn’t yet a precise science. Although doctors are getting better at targeting tumors, there’s still no magic bullet that homes in on cancer cells and destroys them without risking collateral damage to other parts of the body. The outward signs of off-target destruction include classic side effects of chemotherapy and radiotherapy such as hair loss, nausea, and fatigue. But there can be silent inner damage, too, sometimes to the heart and arteries. These injuries can appear immediately during therapy; other times they don’t surface for years.

“Important advances in our ability to fight cancer over the last few decades have translated into improved survival,” says Dr. Erica L. Mayer, an oncologist at Harvard-affiliated Dana-Farber Cancer Institute. “But we are also learning that many of these lifesaving therapies have the potential to affect the heart and other parts of the body.”

Once relegated to the back burner, the late effects of cancer care are gradually getting more attention. One turning point was the publication in 2005 of From Cancer Patient to Cancer Survivor: Lost in Transition. This influential report from the Institute of Medicine put a spotlight on the disjointed care often received by the 12 million-plus cancer survivors in the United States after their cancer treatment has ended.

Protein May Hold the Key to Who Gets Alzheimer’s

It is one of the big scientific mysteries of Alzheimer’s disease: Why do some people whose brains accumulate the plaques and tangles so strongly associated with Alzheimer’s not develop the disease?

Now, a series of studies by  suggests a possible answer, one that could lead to new treatments if confirmed by other research.

The memory and thinking problems of Alzheimer’s disease and other dementias, which affect an estimated seven million Americans, may be related to a failure in the brain’s stress response system, the new research suggests. If this system is working well, it can protect the brain from abnormal Alzheimer’s proteins; if it gets derailed, critical areas of the brain start degenerating.

Think You Know Your Sh*t? Here’s What Your Poop Can Tell You About Your Health

I know you’d like to think that your shit don’t stink, but if you lean a little bit closer, you might learn a little bit more about your health.

It’s true: While you might be the type to flush it and forget it, the next time you hit the loo to do your business, check out what’s in the bowl. The texture, shape and color of your dung can hint at things like dehydration, undetected illnesses and dietary deficiencies. If you’re excreting hard, pebbly poops, for example, you may be lacking in the fiber and fluid departments.

Could Watching TV Kill You? Binge Watchers at Higher Risk

People who watch television for three hours a day or more are twice as likely to die in the next few years as people who watch little or no TV, a new study has found.

It’s the latest in a series of studies that show sitting still can kill you. But this one has a few twists. TV watching seemed deadlier than sitting at a desk or driving a car all day — and the effect was seen in relatively young, healthy affluent people. So it doesn’t appear that people were watching TV because they didn’t feel well.

“Our findings suggest adults may consider increasing their physical activity, avoid long sedentary periods, and reduce television watching to no longer than one to two hours each day,” said Dr. Martinez-Gonzalez of the University of Navarra in Pamplona, Spain.

More than 29 million American adults have diabetes, and a quarter of them don’t even know it, a new report shows.

That’s up from 26 million in 2010, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention says, and represents more than 9 percent of the population.

And another 86 million — a third of the adult population — are headed down the road to diabetes, with blood sugar levels high enough to mark them as pre-diabetic.
