Lung Cancer Progression And Staging - Manipal Hospitals
The most common form of lung cancer is non-small cell lung cancer. It is staged according to the size of the tumour and whether it has spread to the lymph nodes or other organs of the body. There are 4 stages of lung cancer. In the occult stage, cancer cells are accumulated in the fluids in the lungs and there is no tumour yet. In stage 0, cancer cells are found in the airway passages. Stage 1A and 1B are invasive cancer as tumour grows in the inner lining of airways and then spread into the bronchus. In stage 2A, it spreads to the lymph nodes on the same side of the chest. Stage 2B has two categories in which the cancer has invaded the diaphragm, chest walls and membranes around the heart and the tumour has grown in the bronchus and lymph nodes. In stage 3A, it spreads to lymph nodes and other structures nearby. In 3B, tumour may be of any size and spread to more lymph nodes on the same side and to nearby structures too. In stage 4, tumour has spread in other parts of the body. This informative animated video explains in detail about the staging and progression of lung cancer. The staging of lung cancer refers to the extent of the disease. If one has the most common form of lung cancer or non-small cell lung cancer, it will be staged according to the size of the tumour and whether it has spread to lymph nodes or other nodes of the body. In occult or hidden stage, the cancer cells are found in the coughed up mucus or in other fluids, but no tumour can be seen in the lungs. Stage zero is not considered invasive because the cancer cells are found in the innermost lining of the air passages, but have not grown through it. Stage 1A is known as the invasive cancer, because the tumour has grown the inner lining of the airways into the deep lung tissue.

LIFE Before Death Cancer Pain
DVD OUT NOW http://www.lifebeforedeath.com "Cancer Pain" Short Film 9 of 50 in the LIFE Before Death documentary series about the global crisis in untreated pain and the dramatic life changing effect palliative care services can deliver to patients and their families around the world. In this Short Film we discover that cancer is the most feared disease and the problem of cancer pain is an escalating problem worldwide. "Studies in a number of countries have shown when you ask people what disease worries them most if they thought they had it, cancer is streets ahead of anything else," reports Professor David Hill (Australia). Over 12 million people are likely to be diagnosed with cancer this year alone and 7 million will die of the disease. Cancer kills more people than AIDS and tuberculosis combined. "There are at least 5 million people who die of cancer each year with untreated pain," states Dr Kathleen Foley (USA). "We think this is an underestimate of pain in the world because there are 12 million survivors of cancer, people living with cancer, and we know about a third of them experience pain." Dr Eva Rossina Duarte Juarez (Guatemala) agrees that cancer is indeed painful. "In the situation of advanced illnesses, people need to be able to die in peace." Breast cancer patient Carmen (Australia) reflects that she doesn't fear death however she did fear the essential medications designed to treat her cancer pain. "I had a lot of pain on every level, whether it was physical or emotional." Dr Mark Boughey (Australia) of Caritas Christi Hospice in Melbourne explains, "When Carmen got here pain was the big issue... She had that really problematic neuropathic pain so you couldn't even touch her skin without her screaming and being distressed." "This problem is very much with us, it's a global problem, but also there are things we can do to bring the escalating problem of cancer under control," Professor David Hill. Carmen reflects that professional treatment of her pain brought back her sanity and quality of life. "I'm very blessed to have had this opportunity ... I've had really good care." Featuring Professor David Hill (Australia), Dr Kathleen Foley (USA), Dr Eva Rossina Duarte Juarez (Guatemala), Dr Mark Boughey (Australia), Carmen (Australia). LIFE Before Death will include 50 short films themed around pain control and end of life issues, releasing one a week for a year from May 2011. A feature film was released in early 2012 and is available at http://www.lifebeforedeath.com The project is presented by the Lien Foundation and produced by Moonshine Movies. It is also supported by the International Association for the Study of Pain, The Mayday Fund, the Union for International Cancer Control and The Institute for Palliative Medicine at San Diego Hospice International Programs.

The Ten Stages Of Your Death
Ever wondered what happens to your body after you die? Subscribe to our channel: http://goo.gl/9CwQhg ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Description: If there is a common thread that brings us all together, it is the fact that one day we will all die. Despite what religion may say, none of us actually know what will happen once we die. One of the factors that bring in a lot of anxiety is what will happen to our body. There are about ten stages of death all together, and learning about them is enough to make anyone queasy, but it shouldn’t matter about it happening to you because, well, you’ll be dead. While we don’t know as to whether our consciousness survives, if we go to heaven, linger on the earth, or just cease to exist, science can at least answer the physical questions about what happens to our body. Unfortunately, science’s answers about physical death doesn’t do much to comfort a grieving family, or give peace to someone who may be fearing death to an extreme. But, the simple fact is that we will all eventually die, hopefully after living long and fulfilling lives. When death begins, you no longer have the ability to cough or swallow. Therefore, you’re unable to get rid of the mucus in your lungs and you’ll start to produce the classic and well known “death rattle” when you breathe. Once you die, your organs will no longer be receiving oxygen, and they will begin to shut down. When all of your organs are dead, then you will be officially dead. But the death cycle does not stop there, the next stage is livor mortis, where the blood is no longer flowing and will begin to pool and cause a red/blue color in the skin. Cell death soon follows, as cells break down for not having any more ATP being produced by the liver and no oxygen is flowing through the body. Since there is no blood flow, rigor mortis will take place, where the muscles will stiffen. The corpse may end up making squealing or moaning noises from the vocal chords stiffening up as well. Purge fluid will also come up from the nose and mouth, which is simply a reddish-brown fluid that is often mistaken for blood. While the cells break down, they will emit a chemical that will break down the rest of the cells in your body causing putrefaction. Decomposition soon follows where the body will bloat from the cadaverine and putrescine. Soon, your body then begins to dry up and fluids are lost. This is what the ancient Egyptians were trying to achieve in mummification by bypassing the stages of death and jumping straight to the loss of fluids. The final stages of death include your skin and organs drying up and falling apart off your skeleton. Bugs and other friends of nature may feast on your body for the last remaining nutrients that you have. Eventually, you will be reduced to nothing more than a skeleton, and your death cycle is complete. Lucky for us, we won’t be conscious for 90% of the stages of death. ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Our Social Media: Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/TheRichest.org Twitter: https://twitter.com/TheRichest_Com Instagram: http://instagram.com/therichest ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Featuring: Death Begins Organ Death Livor Mortis Cell Death Rigor Mortis Purge Fluid Putrefaction Decomposition Loss of Fluids Final Stages ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- For more videos and articles visit: http://www.therichest.com/

5.1 The Rational Treatment of Cancer
Extraordinary leaps forward Cancer is relatively well documented at the level of molecular biology We have discussed: Multi-hit hypothesis Oncogenes Tumor suppressors Cell cycle regulation Signalling pathways However, most cancer treatments were developed prior to 1975! There has been little progress in exploiting these insights for The causative mechanisms of cancer Prevention of the disease Treatment of the disease The survival rates for lung cancer 5 years after their initial diagnosis 1970’s; 7% of the patients diagnosed with lung cancer were still alive. 2000’s; 14% of the patients diagnosed with lung cancer were still alive. Bare in mind modern diagnostic techniques often detect tumors far earlier in their clinical course, creating a greater time span between initial diagnosis and ultimate progression to end-stage disease. Death rates for colon cancer have begun to fall because of early detection and surgical removal of growths However, mortality caused more advanced colorectal tumors has changed little This represents the failures of chemotherapy and radiation to eliminate these malignancies once they have invaded and begun to metastasize. Some cancers have declined significantly since 1930 Due to changes to food storage practice Reduction in Helicobacter pylori infection Screening Stomach cancer Colorectal cancer Some cancers are resistant to most forms of therapy resistant to most forms of traditional therapy especially when these tumors progress to a highly malignant state Small-molecule therapeutics Research into cell signaling has led to small-molecule therapeutics Intra-cellular targets have been identified within cancer cells The true potential of this research is yet to be realized

Progression And Staging Of Breast Cancer - Manipal Hospitals
This video discusses how the different stages of cancer are classified. The staging is usually based on the size of the tumor, whether it is invasive or non-invasive, has spread beyond the breast, and whether it has attacked any lymph nodes. There are five stages of Cancer. Stage zero is non-invasive cancer where there is no evidence the cancer cells have spread into neighboring breast tissue. Stage one is an early stage of invasive cancer. There is no evidence that the cancer has spread beyond the breast tissue areas. Stages two and three deal with invasive cancer that has also spread to the lymph nodes under the arms. Stage four is an advanced cancer that has spread to other organs of the body.

Regulated lysosomal exocytosis mediates cancer progression
Regulated lysosomal exocytosis mediates cancer progression. Eda Machado et al (2015), Science Advances http://dx.doi.org/10.1126/sciadv.1500603 Understanding how tumor cells transition to an invasive and drug-resistant phenotype is central to cancer biology, but the mechanisms underlying this transition remain unclear. We show that sarcomas gain these malignant traits by inducing lysosomal exocytosis, a ubiquitous physiological process. During lysosomal exocytosis, the movement of exocytic lysosomes along the cytoskeleton and their docking at the plasma membrane involve LAMP1, a sialylated membrane glycoprotein and target of the sialidase NEU1. Cleavage of LAMP1 sialic acids by NEU1 limits the extent of lysosomal exocytosis. We found that by down-regulation of NEU1 and accumulation of oversialylated LAMP1, tumor cells exacerbate lysosomal exocytosis of soluble hydrolases and exosomes. This facilitates matrix invasion and propagation of invasive signals, and purging of lysosomotropic chemotherapeutics. In Arf−⁄− mice, Neu1 haploinsufficiency fostered the development of invasive, pleomorphic sarcomas, expressing epithelial and mesenchymal markers, and lysosomal exocytosis effectors, LAMP1 and Myosin-11. These features are analogous to those of metastatic, pleomorphic human sarcomas, where low NEU1 levels correlate with high expression of lysosomal exocytosis markers. In a therapeutic proof of principle, we demonstrate that inhibiting lysosomal exocytosis reversed invasiveness and chemoresistance in aggressive sarcoma cells. Thus, we reveal that this unconventional, lysosome-regulated pathway plays a primary role in tumor progression and chemoresistance.

Early Signs that Cancer is Growing in Your Body
Don’t rely on routine tests alone to protect you from cancer. It’s just as important to listen to your body and notice anything that’s different, odd, or unexplainable. Here are some signs that are commonly overlooked: 1. Wheezing or shortness of breath One of the first signs many lung cancer patients remember noticing is the inability to catch their breath. 2. Chronic cough or chest pain Several types of cancer, including leukemia and lung tumors, can cause symptoms that mimic a bad cough or bronchitis. Some lung cancer patients report chest pain that extends up into the shoulder or down the arm. 3. Frequent fevers or infections These can be signs of leukemia, a cancer of the blood cells that starts in the bone marrow. Leukemia causes the marrow to produce abnormal white blood cells, sapping your body’s infection-fighting capabilities. 4. Difficulty swallowing Trouble swallowing is most commonly associated with esophageal or throat cancer, and is sometimes one of the first signs of lung cancer, too. 5. Swollen lymph nodes or lumps on the neck, underarm, or groin Enlarged lymph nodes indicate changes in the lymphatic system, which can be a sign of cancer. 6. Excessive bruising or bleeding that doesn’t stop This symptom usually suggests something abnormal happening with the platelets and red blood cells, which can be a sign of leukemia. Over time, leukemia cells crowd out red blood cells and platelets, impairing your blood’s ability to carry oxygen and clot. 7. Weakness and fatigue Generalized fatigue and weakness is a symptom of so many different kinds of cancer that you’ll need to look at it in combination with other symptoms. But any time you feel exhausted without explanation and it doesn’t respond to getting more sleep, talk to your doctor. 8. Bloating or abdominal weight gain Women diagnosed with ovarian cancer overwhelmingly report unexplained abdominal bloating that came on fairly suddenly and continued on and off over a long period of time. 9. Feeling full and unable to eat This is another tip-off to ovarian cancer; women say they have no appetite and can’t eat, even when they haven’t eaten for some time. 10. Pelvic or abdominal pain Pain and cramping in the pelvis and abdomen can go hand in hand with the bloating that often signals ovarian cancer. Leukemia can also cause abdominal pain resulting from an enlarged spleen. 11. Rectal bleeding or blood in stool This is a common result of diagnosing colorectal cancer. Blood in the toilet alone is reason to call your doctor and schedule a colonoscopy. 12. Unexplained weight loss Weight loss is an early sign of colon and other digestive cancers; it’s also a sign of cancer that’s spread to the liver, affecting your appetite and the ability of your body to rid itself of wastes. 13. Upset stomach or stomachache Stomach cramps or frequent upset stomachs may indicate colorectal cancer. 14. A red, sore, or swollen breast These symptoms can indicate inflammatory breast cancer. Call your doctor about any unexplained changes to your breasts. 15. Nipple changes One of the most common changes women remember noticing before being diagnosed with breast cancer is a nipple that began to appear flattened, inverted, or turned sideways. 16. Unusually heavy or painful periods or bleeding between periods Many women report this as the tip-off to endometrial or uterine cancer. Ask for a transvaginal ultrasound if you suspect something more than routine heavy periods. 17. Swelling of facial features Some patients with lung cancer report noticing puffiness, swelling, or redness in the face. Small cell lung tumors commonly block blood vessels in the chest, preventing blood from flowing freely from your head and face. 18. A sore or skin lump that doesn’t heal, becomes crusty, or bleeds easily Familiarize yourself with the different types of skin cancer —melanoma, basal cell carcinoma, and squamous cell carcinoma — and be vigilant about checking skin all over your body for odd-looking growths or spots.

(All proceeds Dr. Greger receives from the sales of his books, DVDs, and speaking engagements go to support the 501c3 nonprofit that runs NutritionFacts.org.) DESCRIPTION: Choline may be the reason egg consumption is associated with prostate cancer progression and death. If you're a long-time follower and some of this sounds familiar, it's because I had to fast-track some of this choline information to offer background for my Dr. Oz Show appearance. A longer video that covers this can be found in Carnitine, Choline, Cancer and Cholesterol: The TMAO Connection (http://nutritionfacts.org/video/carnitine-choline-cancer-and-cholesterol-the-tmao-connection/). In my last video, Eggs and Choline: Something Fishy (http://nutritionfacts.org/video/eggs-and-choline-something-fishy), I talked about what trimethylamine might do to one's body odor. With regard to the prevention of prostate cancer progression, chicken and eggs may be the worst foods to eat, but what might be the best? See my recent video Prostate Cancer Survival: The A/V Ratio (http://nutritionfacts.org/video/prostate-cancer-survival-the-av-ratio). More on the heterocyclic amines in chicken and eggs in: • Heterocyclic Amines in Eggs, Cheese, and Creatine?

Early Gastric Cancer
Early gastric cancer (EGC) is defined as invasive gastric cancer that invades no more deeply than the submucosa, irrespective of lymph node metastasis (T1, any N). While EGC is of particular importance for patient care in Eastern Asia, its significance extends to other disciplines and patient populations: Globally, gastric adenocarcinoma, with nearly one million incident cases annually, is the second leading cause of global cancer mortality and the leading cause of infection-associated cancer death. EGC accounts for 15 to 57 percent of incident gastric cancer, depending upon geographic location. Intestinal-type gastric adenocarcinoma, the major subtype, progresses through a series of histopathologic stages, from normal mucosa, to chronic gastritis, atrophic gastritis, intestinal metaplasia, and finally dysplasia and adenocarcinoma. The underlying cause of early pan-gastric mucosal inflammation and of chronic gastritis is Helicobacter Pylori (H. pylori) infection, with modulation by the host response, diet, and other environmental factors Since the discovery of Helicobacter pylori (H. pylori) in the 1980s, much has been learned about this gram-negative spiral bacteria and its associated disease states. In 1994, the National Institutes of Health (NIH) Consensus Conference recognized H. pylori as a cause of gastric and duodenal ulcers. Later that year, the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) declared H. pylori to be a group I human carcinogen for gastric adenocarcinoma. There is also evidence that H. pylori infection is a risk factor for gastric mucosa-associated lymphomas (MALT lymphomas). Despite these clear associations, there is marked individual variability in the outcomes of H. pylori infection, with most patients having a nonneoplastic rather than neoplastic process. H. pylori infection is associated with a complex interaction between genetic, environmental, and bacterial factors, which potentially explains the different outcomes possible following infection. Until these factors are better defined and their interactions better understood, practitioners should limit testing for and treating H. pylori to those situations where there is evidence to support a clinical benefit. Intestinal versus diffuse types — There are two distinct types of gastric adenocarcinoma, intestinal (well-differentiated) and diffuse (undifferentiated), which have distinct morphologic appearance, epidemiology, pathogenesis, and genetic profiles . The morphologic differences are attributable to intercellular adhesion molecules, which are well preserved in intestinal-type tumors and defective in diffuse carcinomas. In intestinal tumors, the tumor cells adhere to each other, and tend to arrange themselves in tubular or glandular formations, similar to adenocarcinomas arising elsewhere in the intestinal tract (hence their designation as intestinal-type). In contrast, a lack of adhesion molecules in diffuse carcinomas allows the individual tumor cells to grow and invade neighboring structures without the formation of tubules or glands

Chemotherapy and Radiation | Death By The 'Cure'  ~~~Nancy
People are living long enough to find out what the effects of chemotherapy and radiation are - on the brain. Many people undergo chemo and radiation because the family expects them to take these 'cures'. In the largest cancer centres in my area - Cleveland, Ohio USA - chemotherapy and radiation are still 'the treatment' for cancer. It is becoming widely known that cancer is a natural process that happens to many people. This condition will stop when the immune system is healthy enough to heal the body - from the inside. Proper nutrition isn't enough - always, to reverse the symptoms of cancer. Minerals and vitamins are needed - our bodies will heal from the inside out; healing NEVER happens from the outside. If the blood is not changed - then the same condition will recur. Taking out a cancer spot - is putting a band aid on a bleeding ulcer - the ulcer is not gone. Cancer's source is a low pH - along with a secondary cause. Certain minerals can treat the body significantly enough - to cause the body to stop the progression of cancer. Some minerals can place the body in the proper alkaline state - so that the body will 'correct' itself - on it's own. My question in this video is - how fast will the cancer travel - to the brain; to the spinal cord? Can I stop the cancer from taking over - in time? That is something I've found the answer to; I'll have than answer in another video. ~~~Nancy Gurish PLEASE SUBSCRIBE TO ALL 4 OF MY CHANNELS Thank you! ~~~Nancy LET'S CONNECT!

Leukemia Symptoms -- Stages of the Disease with Warning Signs of each Stage!
http://utahtexans.com/ Click on the link above for a free guide to buying and choosing dietary supplements! In the most basic of definitions leukemia is when damaged blood cells take over the body and allow harmful invaders to do bad things. Almost like if the entire police force of a city decided to all take LSD, and the criminals have nothing to stop them from robbing people and destroying property. The body needs to make billions of blood cells a day to do work. These blood cells are created in a person's bone marrow and there are three types. The first type of blood cell is a red one and its job is to carry oxygen around the body giving it to organs that need it. The second type are white blood cells and there job is to fight infections, and battle harmful invaders like viruses and bacteria. The last ones are platelets and they enable blood to clot with an injury almost like a natural Band-Aid. With leukemia a defective white blood cell known as a cancer cell is created and instead of doing its job it would rather be lazy and rebel. So the body sends out a signal for the cell to kill itself, and the rebel cell decides to ignore it, and it creates copies of itself. These copies continue to grow and overcrowd the normal healthy cells, and less blood cells are created because the body believes it has enough. If a harmful virus or bacteria enters the body the white cells are supposed to stop it from doing harm. Instead of normal healthy white blood cells dealing with it, the lazy cancerous cells go over and make friends with the invader. The harmful invading virus or bacteria begins to spread and gets someone sick. Since the body has defective white blood cells the person who is infected is likely to get sick much more frequently. This could include constantly getting a fever, a runny nose, a cough, and a feeling of wanting to vomit. Next the cancerous cells have been making copies of itself and has not only crowded out the white blood cells, but also the other blood cells. This includes red blood cells, which are supposed to deliver oxygen to where it's needed and eliminate carbon dioxide. Without enough oxygen organs begin to get weaker, just like if you had a difficult time with breathing. This could result in joint and muscle pains along with muscle weakness. These red blood cells also provide color for the skin so without enough of them a person starts to look almost dead, with more white colored skin. This is known as Anemia. There are also not enough platelets and do you know what this means? If someone has a cut it's going to continue to bleed and bleed without stopping. Next something known as bleeding in the skin may take place. This is when many very small red dots appear in the skin on the lower legs. If a person has leukemia the slightest of injuries could result in bruises. Bruises appear when blood vessels break due to an injury and blood leaks out of these vessels resulting in the ugly look of the bruise. Without enough platelets someone could experience blood in their urine or feces. Next blood could come from the nose, gums and teeth frequently. If it's really bad, bleeding could occur in the brain, intestinal tract and kidneys which could be very bad and kill a person. All these symptoms really depend on how fast the cancerous cells are growing. If it's really fast this might be better, since someone is more likely to notice them. Almost like with glaucoma where usually there is a slow reduction in peripheral vision and by the time someone notices it, much permanent damage has been done. This type of leukemia where it grows slowly is known as chronic, and if it grows really rapidly it's known as acute. A lot of cases of Leukemia are found when a doctor orders a few blood tests for an unrelated health issue or for a normal checkup. One great way to detect leukemia would be to continue to get routine checkups, so if you do have it you could more easily eliminate it before it grows. If you're over the age of fifty it should be every year and every 2 to 3 years for everyone else. Once someone knows they have this disease the most common treatments are chemotherapy, radiation therapy, targeted therapy and a stem cell transplant. Stem cells are what create the blood cells in the bone marrow. All of these treatments are not really good because they have bad side effects, but eliminating the cancerous cells is the most important priority. You can reduce your chance of getting this health problem by not smoking tobacco, not eating Trans fats and ensuring you're getting all the vitamins you need. If you are interested in taking herbal remedies and dietary supplements for better health, I strongly recommend viewing a free guide I created on this topic. http://utahtexans.com/.

Staging of Lung Cancer
Learn more about lung cancer at http://www.YouAndLungCancer.com This animation explains how lung cancer staging is a system that doctors use to describe or classify the overall size and spread of the main tumor. Doctors need lung cancer staging information to help plan a patient’s treatment. Lung cancer is classified into several stages - the higher the stage the more advanced the spread of the disease and the more aggressive the treatment strategy. In Stage 0 the cancer is only in the top layers of the cells lining the lung’s air passages and this is the easiest stage to treat. In Stage IV the cancer has spread to the other lung, lymph nodes outside the lungs, and other parts of the body.

Take Charge of Your Ovarian Cancer Treatment
Approximately 22,000 U.S. women are diagnosed annually with ovarian cancer and sadly, Ovarian cancer is the fifth most common cause of cancer death in women. New maintenance treatment options are now available, that have been shown to significantly reduce the risk of ovarian cancer progression or death, and can be used if a woman’s ovarian cancer has returned and SHe has a received a partial or complete response to platinum-based chemotherapy. Here to discuss these new developments is Dr. Robert Holloway, Medical Director, at Florida Hospital.
Signs of Lung Cancer   You Might Have These Symptoms
Twiter : https://twitter.com/HealthB60542247 Google + https://goo.gl/ZXvG4p Most lung cancers do not cause any symptoms until they have spread, but some people with early lung cancer do have symptoms. If you go to your doctor when you first notice symptoms, your cancer might be diagnosed at an earlier stage, when treatment is more likely to be effective. The most common symptoms of lung cancer are: A cough that does not go away or gets worse Coughing up blood or rust-colored sputum (spit or phlegm) Chest pain that is often worse with deep breathing, coughing, or laughing Hoarseness Weight loss and loss of appetite Shortness of breath Feeling tired or weak Infections such as bronchitis and pneumonia that don’t go away or keep coming back New onset of wheezing If lung cancer spreads to distant organs, it may cause: Bone pain (like pain in the back or hips) Nervous system changes (such as headache, weakness or numbness of an arm or leg, dizziness, balance problems, or seizures), from cancer spread to the brain or spinal cord Yellowing of the skin and eyes (jaundice), from cancer spread to the liver Lumps near the surface of the body, due to cancer spreading to the skin or to lymph nodes (collections of immune system cells), such as those in the neck or above the collarbone

Entosis: A Cell-in-Cell Invasion and Death Process
When human cells wander in suspension, free of their normal attachments, many of them launch invasions into their neighbors. These "homeless" cells bore into other cells and hang out inside, where they either die or exit, apparently unscathed. This bizarre process, which the researchers term entosis, appears to underlie a natural phenomenon involving tumor cells inhabiting other tumor cells that pathologists have observed for decades. This may be relevant to cancer if entosis inhibits tumor progression by killing "homeless" cancer cells before they colonize distant sites. This work, from Professor Joan Brugge's lab, appeared in the journal Cell in 2007.

What Are the Stages of Liver Damage? Fatty Liver|Hepatitis|Fibrosis|Cirrhosis
http://bit.ly/fattylr What Are the Stages of Liver Damage? Fatty Liver|Hepatitis|Fibrosis|Cirrhosis Liver disease: Liver disease refers to any disorder of the liver. The liver is a large organ in the upper right abdomen that aids in digestion and removes waste products from the blood. There are four stages of liver damage known as fatty liver, hepatitis, fibrosis and cirrhosis. Although liver damage is reversible in the early stages, the changes of cirrhosis are not. Sometimes fibrosis and cirrhosis are considered as one stage, making three main stages altogether. Most often, liver damage is caused by excessive consumption of alcohol, although what is called nonalcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) progresses through similar stages. NAFLD is associated with obesity and is becoming more common. Symptoms may not be noticeable in the early stages of liver damage. 1.- Fatty Liver In the first stage, fatty liver, abnormally large amounts of fat accumulate inside liver cells. When this is caused by alcohol, fat can build up after only a few days of heavy drinking. Other causes of liver damage, such as drugs, a condition called fatty liver of pregnancy and NAFLD, lead to very similar changes. Where alcohol is the cause, stopping drinking reverses the problem within a couple of weeks. If the fat deposits of fatty liver become severe, people may experience symptoms of abdominal pain, nausea and weakness. 2.- Hepatitis The liver damage might progress to the next stage, hepatitis, where the liver is inflamed. In alcoholic hepatitis, there may be no symptoms, but problems such as jaundice, pain, nausea and tiredness may occur. Occasionally, a sudden, heavy bout of drinking can cause severe hepatitis and liver failure, followed by coma and death. This can occur even though a person has not yet developed the later stages of liver damage. 3.- Fibrosis Fibrosis, the third stage, is the process of scar formation. Scarring may gradually build up in the liver, causing cells to die and reducing the liver's blood supply. As long as sufficient numbers of liver cells remain, the liver continues to function. 4.- Cirrhosis Eventually, cirrhosis develops, where the normal liver tissue is replaced by lumps known as nodules. The liver no longer functions properly and the person may have numerous symptoms including jaundice, a painful, swollen abdomen, weight loss and personality changes. http://bit.ly/fattylr What Are the Stages of Liver Damage?

Starve Cancer or Eat? James and Markus
http://www.MarkusNews.com Can cancer be starved or should people eat? Markus Rothkranz and James Sloane have an interesting discussion on how to approach cancer and why. Also what treatments are effective, herbs etc. You cannot starve cancer per se. For instance, if you deprive it of glucose it will feed off lactate, ketones, or certain amino acids etc. However, there are foods you can eat that will help you fight cancer. If you focus on cancers caused from viruses, the largest category of cancer causes, there are several natural food approaches you can take that will fight this disease. Cancer: fasting versus eating more….. https://www.ted.com/talks/william_li#t-1080717 …”can we eat to starve cancer? Well, the answer is yes, and I'm going to show you how. And our search for this has taken us to the market, the farm and to the spice cabinet, because what we've discovered is that Mother Nature has laced a large number of foods and beverages and herbs with naturally-occurring inhibitors of angiogenesis”…..angiogenesis…” based on the process that our bodies use to grow blood vessels” Most common causes of cancer are viral https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC4135891/ Abstract SUMMARY About a fifth of all human cancers worldwide are caused by infectious agents. In 12% of cancers, seven different viruses have been causally linked to human oncogenesis: Epstein-Barr virus, hepatitis B virus, human papillomavirus, human T-cell lymphotropic virus, hepatitis C virus, Kaposi's sarcoma herpesvirus, and Merkel cell polyomavirus. Herbs help in preventing cancer http://www.naturalmedicinejournal.com/journal/2014-02/identifying-and-treating-metabolic-syndrome-breast-cancer Insulin resistance and metabolic syndrome are major aspects of the oncology terrain that can and should be modified. Common sense strategies like exercise, sleep hygiene, and stress management have proven to be effective in normalizing insulin, blood sugar, and lipids. Additional strategies such as nutrient repletion and herbal medicine can also be incorporated for better clinical outcomes. An overlooked area in breast cancer and obesity prevention is the avoidance of obesogenic compounds. Natural medicine, with its holistic model of care, can play a vital role in identifying and managing insulin resistance to help reduce breast cancer occurrence, recurrence, or progression. If you are looking for other cancer fighters; antivirals are found in plants http://ajcn.nutrition.org/content/78/3/517S.full Abstract Cardiovascular disease and cancer are ranked as the first and second leading causes of death in the United States and in most industrialized countries. Regular consumption of fruit and vegetables is associated with reduced risks of cancer, cardiovascular disease, stroke, Alzheimer disease, cataracts, and some of the functional declines associated with aging. Prevention is a more effective strategy than is treatment of chronic diseases. Functional foods that contain significant amounts of bioactive components may provide desirable health benefits beyond basic nutrition and play important roles in the prevention of chronic diseases. The key question is whether a purified phytochemical has the same health benefit as does the whole food or mixture of foods in which the phytochemical is present. Our group found, for example, that the vitamin C in apples with skin accounts for only 0.4% of the total antioxidant activity, suggesting that most of the antioxidant activity of fruit and vegetables may come from phenolics and flavonoids in apples. We propose that the additive and synergistic effects of phytochemicals in fruit and vegetables are responsible for their potent antioxidant and anticancer activities, and that the benefit of a diet rich in fruit and vegetables is attributed to the complex mixture of phytochemicals present in whole foods. http://www.worldpharmanews.com/research/3617-study-shows-how-chinese-medicine-kills-cancer-cells http://umm.edu/health/medical/altmed/herb/green-tea/ http://www.naturalnews.com/039425_gram-negative_superbugs_antibiotics.html Our Raw Vegan Health Cookbook: http://www.HealthyCookbook.com Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/markus.rothkranz.7 Videos and articles: http://www.MarkusNews.com Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/markusandcara/ Markus Rothkranz website: http://www.MarkusRothkranz.com Markus Products: http://www.HealAnything.com Markus Products: http://www.MarkusProducts.com German website: http://www.MarkusRothkranz.de

9 Early Signs and Symptoms of Lung Cancer That You Should Not Ignore
Lung cancer may not produce any noticeable symptoms in the early stages. In approximately 40 percent of people diagnosed with lung cancer, the diagnosis is made after the disease has advanced. In one-third of those diagnosed, the cancer has reached stage 3. Read on to learn more about lung cancer symptoms, what to watch out and listen for, and how early screening may help people at high risk for the disease. 1. Cough that won’t quit Be on alert for a new cough that lingers. A cough associated with a cold or respiratory infection will go away in a week or two, but a persistent cough that lingers can be a symptom of lung cancer. Don’t be tempted to dismiss a stubborn cough, whether it is dry or produces mucus. See your doctor right away. They will listen to your lungs and may order an X-ray or other tests. 2. Change in a cough Pay attention to any changes in a chronic cough, particularly if you are a smoker. If you are coughing more often, your cough is deeper or has hoarse sound, or you are coughing up blood or more mucus than usual, it’s time to make a doctor’s appointment. If a family member or friend experiences these changes, suggest that they visit their doctor. 3. Breathing changes Shortness of breath or becoming easily winded can also be possible symptoms of lung cancer. Changes in breathing can occur if lung cancer blocks or narrows an airway, or if fluid from a lung tumor builds up in the chest. Make a point of noticing when you feel winded or short of breath. If you find it’s difficult to breath after climbing stairs or performing tasks you could do before without having a hard time breathing, don’t ignore it. 4. Pain in the chest area Lung cancer may produce pain in the chest, shoulders, or back. An aching feeling may not be associated with coughing. Tell your doctor if you notice any type of chest pain, whether it is sharp, dull, constant, or comes and goes. You should also note whether it is confined to a specific area or is occurring throughout your chest. When lung cancer causes chest pain, the discomfort may result from enlarged lymph nodes or metastasis to the chest wall, the lining around the lungs called pleura, or the ribs. 5. Wheezing When airways become constricted, blocked, or inflamed, the lungs produce a wheezing or whistling sound when you breathe. Wheezing can be associated with multiple causes, some of which are benign and easily treatable. However, wheezing is also a symptom of lung cancer, which is why it merits your doctor’s attention. Don’t assume that wheezing is caused by asthma or allergies. Have your doctor confirm the cause. 6. Raspy, hoarse voice If you hear a significant change in your voice, or if someone else points out that your voice sounds deeper, hoarse, or raspier, get checked out by your doctor. Hoarseness can be caused by a simple cold, but this symptom may point to something more serious when it persists for more than two weeks. Hoarseness related to lung cancer can occur when the tumor affects the nerve that controls the larynx, or voice box. 7. Drop in weight An unexplained weight loss of 10 pounds or more may be associated with lung cancer or another type of cancer. When cancer is present, this drop in weight may result from cancer cells using energy. It could also result from shifts in the way the body uses energy from food. Don’t write off a change in your weight if you haven’t been trying to shed pounds. It may be a clue to a change in your health. 8. Bone pain Lung cancer that has spread to the bones may produce pain in the back or in other areas of the body. This pain may worsen at night while resting on the back. It may be difficult to differentiate between bone and muscle pain. Bone pain is often worse at night and increases with movement. Additionally, lung cancer is sometimes associated with shoulder, arm, or neck pain, although this is less common. Be attentive to your aches and pains, and discuss them with your doctor. 9. Headache Headaches may be a sign that lung cancer has spread to the brain. However, not all headaches are associated with brain metastases. Sometimes, a lung tumor may create pressure on the superior vena cava. This is the large vein that moves blood from the upper body to the heart. The pressure can also trigger headaches.

Cancer Claims - Otto Warburg - Misconceptions - H2Minutes - Ep.9
"Cancer cannot survive in an Alkaline Environment" - This is a bold claim attributed to Otto Warburg and used in many marketing materials. In this episode, we break down if the claims attributed to Warburg are correct, and what his research REALLY said. SOURCES: “Despite the permanent stress of hypoxic exposure, humans populating HA areas have reduced cancer mortality over a broad spectrum of cancer types. In fact, the majority of the physiological adaptive processes at HA occurring in response to hypoxia might be the driving force for reduced cancer mortality at HA.” https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/29389240 “Warburg was awarded the Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine in 1931 for his discovery of cytochrome c oxidase, not for his work on cancer and the formulation of the Warburg hypothesis.” “Cancer cells carry out aerobic glycolysis and respiration concurrently.” http://www.nature.com/nrc/journal/v11/n5/execsumm/nrc3038.html “The Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine 1931 was awarded to Otto Warburg "for his discovery of the nature and mode of action of the respiratory enzyme". http://www.nobelprize.org/nobel_prizes/medicine/laureates/1931/warburg-facts.html “Although cancer is a diverse set of diseases, cancer cells share a number of adaptive hallmarks. Dysregulated pH is emerging as a hallmark of cancer because cancers show a 'reversed' pH gradient with a constitutively increased intracellular pH that is higher than the extracellular pH. This gradient enables cancer progression by promoting proliferation, the evasion of apoptosis, metabolic adaptation, migration and invasion.” http://www.nature.com/nrc/journal/v11/n9/full/nrc3110.html “Cancer cells have an acid-base disturbance that is completely different than observed in normal tissues and that increases in correspondence with increasing neoplastic state: an interstitial acid microenvironment linked to an intracellular alkalosis.” http://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/S0304419X05000259 “Based upon the response of cultured cells, including stem cells, to a certain degree of hypoxia and of most if not all proliferating cells to a somewhat more alkaline ambient and especially endogenous pH, their survival and proliferation should be favored.” http://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/S0306987709007841 “Particularly, in the field of cancer research, we are using the term “Warburg effect” to denote a metabolic phenotype typical of many tumor cells, namely the high activity of anaerobic glycolysis, i.e., production of lactic acid, even in the presence of sufficient oxygen.” “However, the influence of pH on the growth of tumor cells appeared never to be of particular interest to Warburg, in spite of his interest in hydrogen-transferring systems such as the coenzymes NAPDH and NADH (see below), which lead to the characterization of the activity of most glycolytic enzymes in later years.” “The year 1931 was also the one in which Otto Warburg received the Nobel Prize in Medicine and Physiology for unraveling the oxygen-transferring ferment of respiration [17]. “His idea that the causative problem of cancer cells was solely one of energetics and at the level of the respiratory system was not convincing in view of the fact that it contradicted Warburg’s own initial data and similar results from many others, and that it disregarded the more recent discoveries on the altered genetics of cancer cells leading to unregulated proliferation and tumor growth.” "Probably the most controversial legacy for tumor metabolism is the hypothesis on the origin of cancer: that damaged respiration is solely responsible for the tumor type metabolism. In spite of its disaffirmation by numerous data and alternative explanations [31] providing evidence that there are also tumor cells which have apparently normal mitochondria and respiratory activity,” “On the other side, however, there is the danger of oversimplification and non-reflected universal application, as well as the uncritical acceptance of a hypothesis as a given fact.” https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC4784299/ Despite the promotion of the alkaline diet and alkaline water by the media and salespeople, there is almost no actual research to either support or disprove these ideas. This systematic review of the literature revealed a lack of evidence for or against diet acid load and/or alkaline water for the initiation or treatment of cancer. Promotion of alkaline diet and alkaline water to the public for cancer prevention or treatment is not justified. https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC4916623/ "Therefore, the possibility that local and systemic alterations in acid-base balance in the alkalotic direction play an important role in the genesis and/or propagation of cancer remains not only a viable but a vital issue at the present time." https://drive.google.com/open?id=1WlW1UjX-W-2viD0DpsyIh5P7enQDAPj4

Jody Rosenblatt (HCI, U. Utah) 2: Epithelial Apoptosis: Death by epithelial cell extrusion
http://www.iBiology.org Part 1: Epithelial homeostasis: Maintaining an intact epithelial barrier requires a balance between cell death and cell division. Rosenblatt describes the signals that regulate epithelial homeostasis. Part 2: Death by epithelial cell extrusion: Dying cells are squeezed or extruded out of epithelia by the contraction of neighboring cells. Extrusion can also remove live cells when cells become too crowded. Part 3: Aberrant epithelial extrusion and disease: When the regulation of epithelial extrusion goes awry, diseases such as asthma or cancer can result. Talk Overview: Both our entire body and all of our organs are covered with a protective layer of epithelial cells. These cells are constantly replicating and dying and a balance between cell death and division is critical to maintain epithelial homeostasis. Too much cell death can lead to gaps in the epithelial barrier while excess division can result in the formation of epithelial tumors. Rosenblatt is interested in understanding the signals that regulate epithelial homeostasis. In Part 1 of her talk, Rosenblatt describes her lab’s novel finding that stretching epithelial cells causes a stretch-activated Ca2+ channel (Piezo1) to open, increasing intracellular Ca2+ levels and stimulating pathways that trigger cell division. How do epithelial cells die and not leave a hole in the protective membrane? In Part 2, Rosenblatt explains how her lab discovered epithelial cell extrusion or the process of squeezing dying cells out of the epithelial monolayer. Sphingosine 1-phosphate (S1P) is released by extruded cells and stimulates neighboring cells to form an actomyosin ring. Contraction of the ring squeezes out the apoptotic cell. Interestingly, crowding can activate extrusion of live cells that go on to die once they lose contact with other cells. Rosenblatt’s lab found that live, extruded cells also release S1P. S1P release is regulated by the same stretch activated channel, Piezo1, as is cell division. These data provide a mechanism by which epithelial barrier function and constant cell densities are maintained. In her third talk, Rosenblatt describes how epithelial diseases such as asthma or cancer can result from aberrant cell extrusion. Too much cell extrusion can lead to holes in the epithelia and compromised barrier function, as seen in asthma. Too little extrusion can lead to masses of cells accumulating on epithelial surfaces, a process likely at work in some cancers. Rosenblatt also describes work from her lab that disrupted S1P signaling may play a key role in causing cancers of epithelial origin, such as pancreatic cancer. She also explains that extrusion from the basal face of an epithelial layer, rather than the usual apical extrusion, is likely an important first step in driving cancer metastasis. Speaker Biography: Dr. Jody Rosenblatt received her BA with honors from the University of California, Berkeley and, after a short stint at Chiron Corporation, she moved across the bay to work as a technician with David Morgan at the University of California, San Francisco. Rosenblatt stayed on at UCSF for her PhD where she worked in Tim Mitchison’s lab. She then moved to University College London for post-doctoral training. It was at UCL that Rosenblatt discovered extrusion and its role in epithelial homeostasis. Currently, Rosenblatt is an Associate Professor in the Department of Oncological Sciences at the University of Utah School of Medicine and an Investigator of the Huntsman Cancer Institute. Her lab studies cell death and division in epithelia. Learn more about Dr. Rosenblatt’s research here: http://healthcare.utah.edu/huntsmancancerinstitute/research/labs/rosenblatt/
