A new study published Wednesday in JNCI Cancer Spectrum has found that poor-diet is the chief cause behind thousands of cancer. Researchers found that cancer risk increased among people who had a low intake of vegetables, fruits, whole grain, and dairy products and a high intake of processed/red meats and sugary beverages.
According to a large and long-time study that was started back in 1993, low-fat diet and more fruits, vegetables, and whole grains reduced the risk of death from breast cancer in women. However, the exact link between the death from breast cancer and diet is unclear. There are several hypotheses from researchers.
UCLA bioengineers and a team of researchers have developed smart insulin, called i-insulin, to prevent hypoglycemia in patients who take insulin to manage their blood sugar levels. Hypoglycemia is one of the diabetic complications characterized by a decrease in blood sugar to a potentially dangerous level. However, the researchers said it will have to undergo clinical trials.
According to a research team at the Cancer Center and Cancer Research Institute at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center, broccoli contains a molecule that can help suppress the tumor growth in humans by inactivating a gene that plays a vital role in developing a variety of cancers.
According to a large population-based, observation study, glucosamine supplements can help prevent the risk of cardiovascular events, coronary heart disease, stroke, and even death. However, there is no conclusive evidence suggesting that glucosamine use reduces cardiovascular risk. Researchers demand further clinical trials to find a strong association.
