CANCER RESEARCH:

Researchers at the University of Washington reportedly discovered that a certain herb by itself can cause 28% reduction in breast cancer cells, but when it was combined with iron, it can eliminate up to 98% of the cancer cells without affecting the normal cells.   “Not only does it appear to be effective, but it’s very selective,” Professor Lai said. “It’s highly toxic to the cancer cells, but has a marginal impact on normal breast cells.”

When the researchers at UW tested  artemisinin-based compound on human leukemia cells, they discovered that it was highly selective at targeting and killing cancer cells.

The chemistry professor at UW and the leading author of the study, Dr Tomikazu Sasaki reported:  “The artemisinin-based compound is like a special agent planting a bomb inside the cell. This compound is selective and effective for eliminating different cancers including leukemia, breast and prostate in laboratory animals”.

In 2011, Tu was awarded the prestigious Lasker-DeBakey Clinical Medical Research Award for her discovery. The discovery of artemisinin is reportedly being considered for a Nobel Prize in Medicine.

Possibly of interest to Post50 Older Adults- “Holy Basil extract was effective at killing off harmful molecules and preventing damage caused by some free radicals in the liver, brain and heart.”

REVIEW THE FOLLOWING INFORMATION ON  SAFE SUPPLEMENTS



wellness pages



WELLNESS - sustainable excellence on levels of body, mind and spirit- is of great interest to many people today. Post-50-People  tend to dismiss outmoded aging stereotypes. These mature adults intend to apply "TLC" to overall health.

More and more people in the "encore phases" of life happily look toward integrative health care.

Practitioners say this model works- regardless of a person's age. At The Sage Companion Project, we note that  "boomers" and people in their late 60s and 70s actually influence age-friendly technologies and , as a consumer group, have a powerful  say in the direction of their own future... The Boomer Effect.
