Cancer cells are abnormal cells that grow and multiply uncontrollably. But they are far more complex than that simple statement. It’s this complex nature of cancer cells that makes a cancer diagnosis so troubling and the treatment options largely limited. One new study published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences indicates low-oxygen levels could be to blame for the spread of at least one type of cancer, giving scientists clues to more effective treatments.

Are you a junk-food addict? Do you want to eat better, but don’t know how? No this isn’t some slimy advertisement! Some inspiring news, a study from Tufts University suggests that your brain can be trained to prefer healthful foods over high-calorie, nutrition-less junk foods, even if eating poorly is a long-standing habit.
By scanning the brains of both women and men, researchers found that people don’t start out craving french fries, pizza, and cookies while abhorring fresh vege [...]

Nicholas WestActivist PostIt is becoming increasingly clear that advancements in genetics and neuroscience are leading toward direct methods of mind control. An array of hi-tech methods have been announced - magnetic manipulation via "neural dust," high-powered lasers, and using light beamed from outside the skull. As a result, scientists are making bold claims that they can alter the brain even to the extent of turning off consciousness altogether.But it is memory research that might be [...]

Most of us know by now that Omega 3 fats are essential for preventing breast cancer, slowing the aging process, halting skin cancer progression, increasing cognitive function, and improving cardiovascular health. But two substantial medical reviews have deduced that omega-3 fatty acids from plants reduce the incidence of heart disease and heart attacks while fish oil has only a slight (“insignificant”) effect.
The most recent of these two reviews coming from scientists at H [...]
It isn’t often that religious folks argue over food (or is it), but Brazilian scientists are now urging Pope Francis to join forces with the Brazilian government to ban all genetically modified foods and their by-products due to health concerns.
