TRICLOSAN, IN ANTIBACTERIAL SOAP,DEODARANT ARE RISKY-HORMONAL CHANGE.

New Study: A Common Soap Ingredient Could Harm Your Health
 
New Study: A Common Soap Ingredient Could Harm Your Health
Triclosan may cause health problems—doesn’t prevent disease better than regular soap and water. .
New study suggests, one common antimicrobial may be affecting our health. The chemical in question, triclosan, is used in a host of antibacterial personal care products, from hand soaps to deodorants.

Now, researchers from the University of California, San Diego School of Medicine say that triclosan could have long-term repercussions for health. The study, published this week in Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, shows that exposure to triclosan caused liver fibrosis and cancer in mice..liver toxicity affects humans and mice in a similar way.
This isn’t the first time the safety of triclosan has come under scrutiny. Studies have shown that triclosan changes hormones in animals, a CDC study found that 75% of humans have traces of the chemical in their urine, and it’s present in the breast milk of most lactating women. And as it turns out, many scientists agree that triclosan isn’t even more effective than washing hands with simple soap and water. Colleen Rogers, Ph.D., a lead microbiologist at the Food and Drug Administration, has said that antibacterial soaps don’t prevent illness any better than regular soaps.
 

Unfortunately, the FDA started looking at whether it was going to allow triclosan to be used in these products in 1978, yet they never actually finalized that decision.
It is up to consumers to decide if using triclosan is worth the potential risk.

सॉफ्ट ड्रिंक्स का सेवन- soft drinks are dangerous

• कोल्डड्रिंक में फास्फोरिक एसिड पीते समय झरझराहट महसूस करने के लिए मिलाया जाताहै। इससे दांतों की कमजोरी, हड्डियों की गंभीर बीमारी ऑस्टियोपोरोसिस हो जाती है।

• नेत्र रोग विशेषज्ञ डॉ.राजेश गौतम के मुताबिक ठंडे पेय पदार्थो में चार खतरनाक कीटनाशक पाए गए हैं।
a. पहला लिंडेन यानी गैमेक्सीन जिसका असर आंखों पर पड़ता है।
b. दूसरा डीडीटी इससे स्नायुतंत्र की कमजोरी, लीवर सिरोसिस, कैंसर और हार्मोनल परविर्तन होते हैं।
c. तीसरा मैलाथियान, इससे गुर्दे जवाब दे जाते हैं और चर्म रोग हो जाते हैं।
d. चौथा है क्लोरोपाइरीफास जो हड्डियों को कमजोर कर देता है।

• कोल्ड ड्रिंक में मिलाई जाने वाली चीनी फ्रुकटोज याददाश्त को कमजोर कर देती है। इससे दिमाग की क्षमता घटने लगती है। यही चीनी डायबिटीज जैसी बीमारी में जानलेवा साबित होती है।

• शोधकर्ताओं ने ढाई लाख से ज्याजदा लोगों पर अध्यकयन करने के बाद कोल्डस ड्रिंक के सेवन से अवसाद बढ़ने का दावा किया है।

• अध्ययन में पता चला कि सॉफ्ट ड्रिंक्स का सेवन करने वाले पुरुषों में प्रोस्टेट कैंसर होने की आशंका बढ़ जाती है

MILK IS HARMFUL

(Sheila Sund, CC BY 2.0)Harvard pediatrician David Ludwig and the chairman of the Department of Nutrition at Harvard, Walter Willett, think that North Americans do not need to drink milk. Drinking milk appears to increase risk for various diseases and has not been shown to prevent bone weakening (Journal of the American Medical Association Pediatrics, July 2013).
I received so many emails after last week’s article about the health dangers of milk that I will try to explain why all non-fermented diary products may be harmful to your health. The component in milk that appears to cause harm is the sugar called galactose. Whole milk, skim milk and other non-fermented milk products contain galactose. Fermenting milk breaks down galactose, so fermented dairy foods such as yogurt and cheese do not contain galactose and therefore appear to be safe.

How Your Body Handles Different Sugars

All carbohydrates are made up of separate single sugars, a few sugars bound together, and long chains of sugars. Thousands of sugars bound together are called starch, while millions of sugars bound together are called fiber. Only single sugars are allowed to pass into your bloodstream. Of the many sugars in nature, only four can be absorbed from your intestines to pass to your liver: glucose, fructose, galactose and mannose. Of the four sugars, only glucose passes into your bloodstream. The other three must be converted to glucose in your liver before they can circulate in your body.
All sugars can cause cell damage, but galactose may be more harmful than the other sugars that enter your body. Chronic exposure of mice, rats, and Drosophila flies to galactose caused them and their cells to age (Journal of Neuroscience Research, 2006;84(3):647-654). The cells had signs of aging: shorter telomeres and DNA damage. Nobody really knows if galactose is more harmful than other sugars, and nobody has presented a plausible explanation on how it could cause harm.

All Sugared Drinks Can Harm

Eating or drinking sugar can cause a rise in blood sugar that can damage every cell in your body. Sugar in drinks causes a much higher rise in blood sugar levels than sugar in food. When food reaches your stomach, the pyloric sphincter muscle at the end of the stomach closes and only liquid soup is allowed to pass into your intestines. So liquid foods pass immediately into your intestines and then into your bloodstream, while solid foods stay a long time in your stomach. Sugared drinks are associated with increased risk for obesity, diabetes, inflammatory-related pain, heart attacks, certain cancers, and premature death. An 8-ounce glass of two percent low-fat milk contains 122 calories, more than a glass of soda, and the type of sugar in milk may be more harmful to your health. It contains more than three teaspoons of sugar, more than current daily recommendations for children. Chocolate milk and other milk-based beverages often have even more sugar added to make them taste better.

You Don’t Need Milk to Meet Your Needs for Calcium

Last week’s article showed that people who drink milk are not protected from developing osteoporosis (British Medical Journal, October 28, 2014;349:g6015). You can get all the calcium you need from seeds, beans, nuts, green leafy vegetables, sardines and other fish. On a gram for gram basis, cooked kale has more calcium than milk. One serving of broccoli meets your daily requirement for calcium.

CANNABIS CAN FIGHT CANCER-SCIENTIFIC PROOF #MEDICALMARIJUANA,#GANJA

Cannabis has been making a lot of noise lately. Multiple states across the United States and countries around the world have successfully legalized medical Marijuana, and the Uruguay parliament recently voted to create the world’s first legal marijuana market. This is good news as the health benefits of Cannabis are vast, with multiple medical and scientific studies that confirm them.
The negative stigmatism attached to marijuana is due to it’s supposed psychotropic effects, yet again, there is no scientific evidence to show that marijuana has any psychotropic effects. Nonetheless, cannabis has recently been the focus of medical research and considered as a potential therapeutic treatment and HELP  for cancer.
Cannabis is a great example of how the human mind is programmed and conditioned to believe something. Growing up, we are told drugs are bad, which is very true, however not all substances that have been labelled as “drugs” by the government are harmful. Multiple substances are labelled as a “drug” in order to protect corporate interests. One example is the automobile and energy industry, a car made from hemp is stronger than steel, and can be fuelled from hemp alone. Henry Ford demonstrated this many years ago. Hemp actually has over 50,000 uses!
Although Cannabis has been proven to be effective for a large range of ailments, this article will focus mainly on it’s effectiveness in the treatment of cancer. Cannabinoids may very well be one of the best disease and cancer fighting treatments out there. Cannabinoids refer to any of a group of related compounds that include cannabinol and the active constituents of cannabis. They activate cannabinoid receptors in the body.
The body itself produces compounds called endocannabinoids and they play a role in many processes within the body that help to create a healthy environment. Cannabinoids also play a role in immune system generation and re-generation. The body regenerates best when it’s saturated with Phyto-Cannabinoids. Cannabinoids can also be found in Cannabis. It is important to note that the cannabinoids are plentiful in both hemp and cannabis.
One of the main differentiations between hemp and cannabis is simply that hemp only contains 0.3% THC while cannabis is 0.4% THC or higher. (Technically they are both strains of Cannabis Sativa.) Cannabinoids have been proven to reduce cancer cells as they have a great impact on the rebuilding of the immune system. While not every strain of cannabis has the same effect, more and more patients are seeing success in cancer reduction in a short period of time by using cannabis.
While taking a look at these studies, keep in mind that cannabis can be much more effective for medicinal purposes when we eat it rather than smoking it. Below are 20 medical studies that prove cannabis can be an effective treatment and possible cure for cancer. Please keep in mind that this is a very short list of studies that support the use of medicinal marijuana. Please feel free to further your research, hopefully this is a good starting point.


Brain Cancer

1. A study published in the British Journal of Cancer, conducted by the Department of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology at Complutense University in Madrid, this study determined that Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) and other cannabinoids inhibit tumour growth. They were responsible for the first clinical study aimed at assessing cannabinoid antitumoral action. Cannabinoid delivery was safe and was achieved with zero psychoactive effects. THC was found to decrease tumour cells in two out of the nine patients.
2. A study published in The Journal of Neuroscience examined the biochemical events in both acute neuronal damage and in slowly progressive, neurodegenerative diseases. They conducted a magnetic resonance imaging study that looked at THC (the main active compound in marijuana) and found that it reduced neuronal injury in rats. The results of this study provide evidence that the cannabinoid system can serve to protect the brain against neurodegeneration.
3. A study published in The Journal of Pharmacology And Experimental Therapeutics already acknowledged the fact that cannabinoids have been shown to possess antitumor properties. This study examined the effect of cannabidiol (CBD, non psychoactive cannabinoid compound) on human glioma cell lines. The addition of cannabidiol led to a dramatic drop in the viability of glioma cells. Glioma is the word used to describe brain tumour. The study concluded that cannabidiol was able to produce a significant antitumor activity.
4. A study published in the journal Molecular Cancer Therapeutics outlines how brain tumours are highly resistant to current anticancer treatments, which makes it crucial to find new therapeutic strategies aimed at improving the poor prognosis of patients suffering from this disease. This study also demonstrated the reversal of tumour activity in Glioblastoma multiforme.

Breast Cancer

5. A study published in the US National Library of Medicine, conducted by the California Pacific Medical Centre determined that cannabidiol (CBD) inhibits human breast cancer cell proliferation and invasion. They also demonstrated that CBD significantly reduces tumour mass.
6. A study published in The Journal of Pharmacology and Experimental Therapeutics determined that THC as well as cannabidiol dramatically reduced breast cancer cell growth. They confirmed the potency and effectiveness of these compounds.
7. A study published in the Journal Molecular Cancer showed that THC reduced tumour growth and tumour numbers. They determined that cannabinoids inhibit cancer cell proliferation, induce cancer cell apoptosis and impair tumour angiogenesis (all good things). This study provides strong evidence for the use of cannabinoid based therapies for the management of breast cancer.
8. A study published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences of the United States of America (PNAS) determined that cannabinoids inhibit human breast cancer cell proliferation.

Lung Cancer

9. A study published in the journal Oncogene, by Harvard Medical Schools Experimental Medicine Department determined that THC inhibits epithelial growth factor induced lung cancer cell migration and more. They go on to state that THC should be explored as novel therapeutic molecules in controlling the growth and metastasis of certain lung cancers.
10. A study published by the US National Library of Medicine by the Institute of Toxicology and Pharmacology, from the Department of General Surgery in Germany determined that cannabinoids inhibit cancer cell invasion. Effects were confirmed in primary tumour cells from a lung cancer patient. Overall, data indicated that cannabinoids decrease cancer cell invasiveness.
11. A study published by the US National Library of Medicine, conducted by Harvard Medical School investigated the role of cannabinoid receptors in lung cancer cells. They determined its effectiveness and suggested that it should be used for treatment against lung cancer cells.

Prostate Cancer

12. A study published in the US National Library of Medicine illustrates a decrease in prostatic cancer cells by acting through cannabinoid receptors.
13. A study published in the US National Library of Medicine outlined multiple studies proving the effectiveness of cannabis on prostate cancer.
14. Another study published by the US National Library of Medicine determined that clinical testing of CBD against prostate carcinoma is a must. That cannabinoid receptor activation induces prostate carcinoma cell apoptosis. They determined that cannabidiol significantly inhibited cell viability.

Blood Cancer

15. A study published in the journal Molecular Pharmacology recently showed that cannabinoids induce growth inhibition and apoptosis in matle cell lymphoma. The study was supported by grants from the Swedish Cancer Society, The Swedish Research Council and the Cancer Society in Stockholm.
16. A study published in the International Journal of Cancer also determined and illustrated that cannabinoids exert antiproliferative and proapoptotic effects in various types of cancer and in mantle cell lymphoma.
17. A study published in the US National Library of Medicine conducted by the Department of Pharmacology and Toxicology by Virginia Commonwealth University determined that cannabinoids induce apoptosis in leukemia cells.

Oral Cancer

18. A study published by the US National Library of Medicine results show cannabinoids are potent inhibitors of cellular respiration and are toxic to highly malignant oral Tumours.

Liver Cancer

19. A study published by the US National Library of Medicine determined that that THC reduces the viability of human HCC cell lines (Human hepatocellular liver carcinoma cell line) and reduced the growth.

Pancreatic Cancer

20. A study published in The American Journal of Cancer determined that cannabinoid receptors are expressed in human pancreatic tumor cell lines and tumour biopsies at much higher levels than in normal pancreatic tissue. Results showed that cannabinoid administration induced apoptosis. They also reduced the growth of tumour cells, and inhibited the spreading of pancreatic tumour cells.
