This is a breakthrough: many patients with breast or lung cancer can avoid chemotherapy and its serious side effects, according to studies  that should change the way cancers are treated.

Men are the most affected, but in industrialized countries their tumors are decreasing, as many of them have given up tobacco. On the other hand, the number of cases increased among women who started smoking a

According to a study in the United States, two genetic mutations from the three responsible for the development of cancer are provoked by errors in cell division, a key process in the regeneration of the body. This conclusion, however, can cause a lot of controversy. “There is ample evidence that changing certain factors, such as

Pomegranate fruit extract is a rich source of polyphenols, chemicals in plants that provide their flavor and color. Polyphenols are also antioxidants, that are thought to provide several heart-protecting benefits, including reducing low-density lipoprotein (LDL, or “bad”) cholesterol.
