Silymarin: A disease-fighting agent

2018-06-07T06:59:42-07:00

By Dr. Francisco Contreras Silymarin is a disease-fighting agent derived from milk thistle. Several studies have shown that silymarin is a very strong antioxidant, capable of scavenging both free radicals and reactive oxygen species, which results in a boost to cellular defense mechanisms. For the last twenty years, scientific researchers have also been studying the cancer [...]

Every Cancer is Unique

2018-06-06T23:38:07-07:00

by Dr. Francisco Contreras Cancers arise by progressive accumulation of random mutations. Each cell has tens of thousands of genes, and each of these genes can be altered in literally hundreds of ways. So each cancer is absolutely unique. Moreover, because cancers tend to acquire mutations more rapidly than healthy cells, they are constantly [...]

by Dr. Francisco Contreras Throughout life, the human body accumulates mutations in the genetic material of its stem cells – cells that retain the capacity to divide. This genetic material (DNA) can be damaged by activated carcinogens derived from the environment, or by oxidant chemicals produced as natural part of cellular metabolism. Mutations can also [...]

Fight and Prevent Cancer with Selenium

2019-10-10T14:42:24-07:00

The use of selenium in cancer therapy is motivated, in part, by substantial evidence that good selenium nutrition can reduce cancer risk. Dr. Larry Clark, and colleagues, conducted a massive double blind clinical study that recruited over 1,300 American subjects known to be at high risk for skin cancer, but free of any serious cancers [...]
