i am in the process of trying to revamp the home page to make it more interesting and user friendly so people aren't put off by the scientific jargon, but it is a very slow process. Also I am sourcing some suppliers of the herbs mentioned in the studies so you can buy direct and are one step away from incorporating these healing herbs, vitamins, homeopathic remedies etc into you health regime. Have a quick look and I would love your feedback and any suggestions you might have (contact me)

Urinary Melatonin Levels and Postmenopausal Breast Cancer Risk in the Nurses' Health Study Cohort Breast cancer risk and Melatonin. Melatonin is a hormone found naturally in the body. Melatonin used as medicine is usually made synthetically in a laboratory. It is most commonly available in pill form, but melatonin is also available in forms that can be placed in the cheek or under the tongue. This allows the melatonin to be absorbed directly into the body. Melatonin’s main job in the body is to regulate night and day cycles or sleep-wake cycles. Darkness causes the body to produce more melatonin, which signals the body to prepare for sleep. Light decreases melatonin production and signals the body to prepare for being awake
Apoptosis of human pancreatic cancer cells induced by Triptolide Pancreatic cancer + Triptolide (TL), extracts of the Chinese herb Tripterygium Wilfordii hook have potent anti-inflammatory and immunosuppressive properties and have been used successfully in traditional Chinese medicine for the treatment of rheumatoid arthritis and lupus erythematosus It has been recently reported that TL possesses anti-tumor and proapoptotic activities in many different tumor cell lines, including breast, prostate, lung, and leukemia cells lines
Tannic Acid Is an Inhibitor of CXCL12 (SDF-1α)/CXCR4 with Antiangiogenic Activity Metastasis + Tannic Acid A tannin is an astringent chemical derived from plants. Tannicacid is one type of tannin. Tannic acid is found in tea, nettle, wood, berries, Chinese galls. Oak wood is very rich in tannic acid. When wine is kept in oak kegs some tannic acid will migrate into the wine. High levels of tannic acid are found in some plant galls. These are formed by plants when they are infected by certain insects. These insects pierce the plant leaves and when the egg hatches out into a larva the plant produces a gall which surrounds the larva.
CRUCIFEROUS VEGETABLES IN RELATION TO RENAL CELL CARCINOMA Renal cancer + Cruciferous vegetables Many commonly consumed cruciferous vegetables come from the Brassica genus, including broccoli, Brussels sprouts, cabbage, cauliflower, collard greens, kale, kohlrabi, mustard, rutabaga, turnips, bok choy, and Chinese cabbage (1). Arugula, horse radish, radish, wasabi, and watercress are also cruciferous vegetables.

InhibitionofCellProliferationandMAPKinaseandAktPathwaysinOralSquamouscellCarcinomabyGenisteinandBiochaninA Oral Cancer + Isoflavones Genistein and Biochanin A Genistein is one of several known isoflavones. Isoflavones, such as genistein and daidzein, are found in a number of plants, with soybeans and soy products like tofu and textured vegetable protein being the primary food source. Soy isoflavones are a group of compounds found in and isolated from the soybean. Biochanin A (BCA) is a dietary isoflavone present in legumes, most notably red clover, and in many herbal dietary supplements. BCA has been reported to have chemopreventive properties and is metabolized to the isoflavone genistein (GEN)

Mobile phones, cordless phones and the risk for brain tumours To date this humble website has been dedicated to uploading positive scientific information to help prevent and treat cancer, however I felt I had to include this study regarding mobile and cordless phones due to their common usage in today's society and especially when more and more children are using this seemingly umbilicus mode of communication
Dietary phytoestrogen intake—lignans and isoflavones—and breast cancer risk (Canada) Breast cancer + Phytoestrogens - lignans + isoflavones + Premenopausal Women + Overweight Women Lignans are phytoestrogens with estrogenic or anti-estrogenic activity. Lignans may also have antioxidant activity. Plant lignans come from sources such as flax seed (highest source) whole grain cereals, rye, legumes, seeds and nuts, berries, vegetables and fruits. Isoflavones are a class of phytoestrogens—plant-derived compounds with estrogenic activity. Soybeans and soy products are the richest sources of isoflavones in the human diet.
