    6 Simple ways to decrease your risk of cancer

    Pharma would make tens of thousands of dollars off of your cancer diagnosis. They wouldn’t really solve your prolem, but would merely prolong your illness so you can continue to spend your savings (and beyond) on their toxic cancer drugs. What the medical industry doesn’t seem to want to discuss (in addition to a cure) is how to prevent cancer. The fact is: cancer can be prevented.
    Untitled1

    Cancer rates have climbed significantly over the past 100 years and that’s due, in part, to our diets and lifestyle choices. Fortunately, we can take this knowledge and take big steps towards cancer prevention. Best of all, we can start now.
    In addition to eating these cancer-fighting foods, here are 6 simple ways to prevent cancer:

    1. Do Exercises - As Dr. Mercola reports, exercise can reduce your risk of cancer and improve cancer treatment outcomes. Go outside and walk in the sun, do some strength training, and improve balance and flexibility with yoga. Exercising outside can be especially beneficial.

    2. Remove Processed Foods - Processed carbohydrates and sugars are cancer fuel. They feed cancer cells and essentially help them grow. Eliminating these foods ensures you don’t have a cancer-friendly environment waiting for the cancerous cells to arrive. At the very least, avoid all processed sugars and foods, instead getting any sugar from natural fruits.

    3. Increase Vitamin D - While you are outside exercising in the sunshine, you’ll already be ahead of the game, creating natural vitamin D for immune function and immediately reducing your cancer risk. Don’t underestimate the connection between vitamin D and cancer reduced cancer risk.

    4. Minimize Radiation Exposure - You can minimize your risk of radiation exposure simply by using your phone less. Use speakerphone when you can to avoid holding the cell phone to your head. Never sleep with your phone next to you on your pillow. (Don’t laugh, you would be surprised at how many people do this). Also, reduce your exposure to medical scans including x-rays and CT scans.

    5. Optimize Essential Fat Consumption - The modern western diet is laden with omega-6 fats and deficient in omega-3s. Normalize your ratio of omega 3 and omega 6 fats by reducing your consumption of omega-6 by limiting the use of processed vegetable oils.

    6. Sleep Plenty and Decrease Stress - Cancer thrives in bodies that are imbalanced or otherwise unhealthy. A stress-free and well-rested person is naturally a healthier person. Make sure you are getting plenty of sleep and doing everything you can do eliminate what has been called the mother of all disease – stress.

    sunburn-knock-out-rat-taq-pcr-elisa-targatt-culture-pcr-knockin-mouse-targatt-knockin-rat-pcr-premix-knockout-mouse-mice-virus-detection-teratomaRedness, pain, and burns after unreasonably long exposure to solar radiation can be consigned to history when scientists recently discovered molecule in the composition of the skin, which is responsible for these reactions.
     
    Blocking molecule TRPV4, which is abundant in the epidermis proven protects skin from harmful effects of the sun.

    According to team leader Professor Wolfgang Liedtke, neurobiologist at the Medical University of North Carolina, their discovery enables the introduction of new products, which offer much greater protection for the skin.
     
    Most skin burns were induced by ultraviolet radiation type B or UVB, which are useful in small amounts and facilitate the synthesis of 25-hydroxyvitamin D, as well as reducing the risk of many infectious diseases, because of the sterilizing effect.

    However, too long exposure to UVB - over 30 minutes a day, cause DNA damage in skin cells, which dramatically increases the risk of developing skin cancer.
     
    In the laboratory, scientists were able to completely block TRPV4 molecule in skin tissue through genetic engineering application. After irradiation normal and genetically modified skin with UVB rays with the same intensity and duration, the researchers reported excellent results: normal skin demonstrated redness, swelling and blisters normal for a typical sunburn while special skin devoid of TRPV4 was only slightly irritated.

    Scientists already tested with great success and an ointment that is applied to the already burnt skin and removes the pain completely.
     
    If their development be released will allow spend many more hours in the sun without leading to a risk of burns or skin cancer. Researchers note that the extended stay in the sun is beneficial not only for the synthesis of 25-hydroxyvitamin D, but also to lower the blood pressure and the risk of cardiovascular disease.

    Vitamin D is useful, but only by measure!

    25-hydroxyvitamin-D-woman-enjoying-the-sunIn recent years, people are constantly being bombarded by mass media with threats that if you do not take vitamin D as a dietary supplement, will develop a deficit and will get sick. Only that vitamin D is one of those substances that adopted more harm. How accurate is the measure of the amount of beneficial to health?

    Scientific team from the hospital, "John Hopkins" found that "sunlight vitamin" - vitamin D, taken in doses higher than normal, it provides additional advantages for health. Half an hour a day sunlight is sufficient to enable the formation of the minimum required amounts of vitamin D in the body. He also assumes the food.

    According to scientists, vitamin D should be taken only on prescription. Dr. Muhammad Amer by the same research team showed that the only ones who need a slightly higher intake of vitamin D are people over 65, women undergoing or have undergone menopause and people with kidney disease. Elevated blood levels of this vitamin is mainly to promote bone health.

    Dr. Amer stated that sufficient exposure to sunlight, strong bones, exclusion of vulnerable groups, the intake of vitamin D without prescription is risky for health.

    Report of the American Heart Journal in 2012 found that 25-hydroxyvitamin D levels in the blood of more than 21 nanograms per milliliter not only reduce its usefulness, but also directly harm him. Such high doses are able to suppress and reduce the amount of protein bound by the Cardiovascular inflammation - C-reactive protein or CRP. This leads to loss of elasticity of blood vessels, which is a factor of increase in blood pressure and the onset of cardiac problems.

    Another factor is the relationship of the vitamin C levels of homocysteine ​​- non-protein amino acid that is a factor in many cardiovascular diseases. High levels of homocysteine ​​are always available when there is a thrombus - a blood clot blocking a blood vessel and can cause heart attack, stroke or pulmonary embolism. In pregnant women is considered to lead to miscarriage and / or preeclampsia - a condition characterized by very elevated blood pressure and presence of protein in the urine. This condition can lead to eclampsia.
     
    Experts advise before buying vitamin supplements to consult a doctor and make a quick blood test. Vitamin supplements should be taken according to the individual needs of everyone, because the difference between benefit and harm is only in dosage.

    Due to hormonal changes occurring in women's bodies after '40, women should pay particular attention to vitamin D. Female body may procure vitamins in three ways: through food, naturally rich in vitamins and with added ones by exposing the skin to sunlight and through dietary supplements.

    Although sunlight and natural foods are the best source for each age, women over 40 sometimes need to take supplements to prevent vitamin deficiency. After that age, the recommended daily dose of vitamins for the fairer sex is 15 micrograms.
     
    The main foods that are rich in vitamin D include: mushrooms, fatty saltwater fish, eggs, liver and alfalfa. If it is not possible to obtain the vitamins in adequate amounts with food, it is necessary to take nutritional supplements.

    25-hydroxyvitamin D supports the growth, development and maintenance of bone, helps the regulation of blood pressure and activity of the immune system by affecting cells such as macrophages and T cells. It plays an important role in cellular differentiation. Women who do not get enough vitamin D under highly increased risk of developing cancer, hypertension, osteoporosis, and autoimmune diseases such as rheumatoid arthritis and insulin-dependent diabetes.
     
    The World Health Organisation recommends taking 15 micrograms of complex substances every day. Except for women over 40, this recommendation applies to pregnant or lactating mothers. In pharmacies, without prescription sell many supplements and vitamins that support the required balance, but if taken without the express prescription by a doctor can cause a number of side effects: diarrhea, vomiting, weight loss, bone and joint pain and fatigue. They can intervene in the action of drugs based on corticosteroids.

    Women suffering from kidney or heart disease or high levels of calcium and phosphorus in the blood should not take supplements with vitamin D.
     
    It is possible overdose of vitamins. The maximum dose that is tolerated by the body is about 150 micrograms per day. If this dose is exceeded, excess compound assumed it was too much to be removed from the body and acts as a toxin. Diseases of hypervitaminosis D, causing cardiac arrhythmias develop kidney stones, severe weight loss, kidney damage, and the walls of blood vessels, muscle weakness, and bladder problems.

    Deficiency of vitamin D e much more widespread and common than overdosing because usually noticed only when they develop any of the conditions surrounding it. The reasons for the deficit are endless, but among the main worldwide are: women who lived much of north and are subjected to short days and long nights or women who cover their skin for religious reasons - and in both cases it is strongly suppressed at natural sources of vitamin D - sun. The second is obesity. Ladies overweight more likely to develop inflammatory condition of the gastrointestinal tract that often go unnoticed, but impair the absorption of vitamin coming with food.
     
    You should always seek medical advice before accepting any pharmaceutical product, even vitamins.

    vitamin-d-sunNo need to overdo it with sunbathing to get some much needed vitamin D. According to a new study, the intake of probiotic supplements significantly improved levels of the vitamin in the body by 25%.
     
    This is the first ever evidence that probiotics play an important role in maintaining and strengthening the bones.

    Previous studies have established the effect of a specific probiotic strain Lactobacillus reuteri NCIMB 30242, which has a beneficial effect in reducing cholesterol levels, but its effect on the absorption of fat-soluble vitamins, vitamin D is unknown.

    Researchers examine health data of a group of middle-aged volunteers who took probiotics for nine weeks.

    They analyze the vitamin D levels by monitoring the levels of 25-hydroxyvitamin D in the blood.
     
    The results show that taking probiotics has significantly increased the levels of the vitamin.
     
    This is an important finding since mass is deficient in vitamin D, the researchers explain. Vitamin D deficiency is associated with osteoporosis and rickets in children. Lack of vitamin restricted absorption of calcium from the bones.

    25OH Vitamin D Total, ELISA, 96 tests

    The Gentaur 25OH Vitamin D Total ELISA is a solid phase Enzyme Linked Immunosorbent Assay performed on microtiterplates. During a first 2 hours incubation step, at room temperature, total 25OH Vitamin D (D2 and D3) present in calibrators, controls and samples is dissociated from binding serum proteins to fix on binding sites of a specific monoclonal antibody. After 1 washing step, a fixed amount of 25OH Vitamin D-labelled with biotin in presence of horseradish peroxidise (HRP), compete with unlabelled 25OH Vitamin D2 and 25OH Vitamin D3 present on the binding sites of the specific monoclonal antibody. After a 30 minutes incubation at room temperature, the microtiterplate is washed to stop the competition reaction. The Chromogenic solution (TMB) is added and incubated for 15 minutes. The reaction is stopped with the addition of Stop Solution and the microtiterplate is then read at the appropriate wavelength. The amount of substrate turnover is determined colourimetrically by measuring the absorbance, which is inversely proportional to the total 25OH Vitamin D (D2 and D3) concentration. A calibration curve is plotted and the total 25OH Vitamin D (D2 and D3) concentrations of the samples are determined by dose interpolation from the calibration curve.
