Inflammation Shuts Down Cancer-Fighting Genes
Chronic inflammation and the chemical silencing of tumor-suppressing genes each play roles in development and progression of colorectal cancer. Research published in Nature Medicine led by MD Anderson Provost Raymond DuBois, M.D., Ph.D., connects the two factors by showing the inflammatory small molecule PGE2 silences genes via DNA methylation. http://www.nature.com/nm/journal/vaop/ncurrent/abs/nm.2608.html

Woman, 67, who battled blood cancer for five years 'recovers after treating it with TURMERIC'....
Woman, 67, who battled blood cancer for five years 'recovers after treating it with TURMERIC' in the first recorded case of its kind A woman who battled blood cancer for years without success finally halted the disease with turmeric, it has been reported. Dieneke Ferguson is now leading a normal life after giving up on gruelling treatments that failed to stop it. Doctors say her case is the first recorded instance in which a patient has recovered by using the spice after stopping conventional medical treatments. With her myeloma spreading rapidly after three rounds of chemotherapy and four stem cell transplants, the 67-year-old began taking 8g of curcumin a day – one of the main compounds in turmeric..

Problem Title: Does Diet Affect Breast Cancer Risk? Scientific Title: The Effects of a Dietary Intervention on Inflammation and Methylation Markers in the Breast Executive Summary: Breast cancer is the second leading cause of cancer death in women, and 1 in 8 women in the United States develop breast cancer in her lifetime. Mechanistic research provides convincing support for the hypothesis that a diet rich in fruits and vegetables reduces the risk of developing breast cancer. In contrast, results from observational and case-control studies are inconsistent. There may be several reasons for these weak and inconsistent results: measurement error, analysis of blood biomarkers as a surrogate for breast, and the developmental time period assessed. Specifically, most epidemiologic studies examine the effects of diet in later adulthood on subsequent breast cancer risk. However, earlier time points in breast development represent critical windows during which environmental exposures may influence breast cancer risk. In an attempt to circumvent these limitations, we conducted a randomized dietary intervention study, characterized by increased fruit and vegetable intake, in breastfeeding women. Breast milk samples were collected at baseline (pre-intervention) and at 12 weeks (post-intervention). Breast milk provides an ideal opportunity to assess the link between diet and breast health, as it contains secreted proteins and exfoliated breast epithelial cells—both of which may be used to analyze biomarkers of breast cancer risk. In this pilot study, five women in the intervention group were provided with weekly boxes of fresh fruits and vegetables, tailored nutritional counseling, and asked to maintain weekly food journals. Analysis of weekly journals and breast milk samples collected at baseline and 12 weeks from women in the intervention and control groups demonstrate that is it feasible to significantly increase fruit and vegetable intake in breastfeeding women, and also possible to alter the inflammatory profile of the breast through diet.

27. Legacies of the Civil War
The Civil War and Reconstruction Era, 1845-1877 (HIST 119) Professor Blight finishes his lecture series with a discussion of the legacies of the Civil War. Since the nineteenth century, Blight suggests, there have been three predominant strains of Civil War memory, which Blight defines as reconciliationist, white supremacist, and emancipationist. The war has retained a political currency throughout the years, and the ability to control the memory of the Civil War has been, and continues to be, hotly contested. 00:00 - Chapter 1.

Carnitine, Choline, Cancer and Cholesterol: The TMAO Connection
Subscribe to Dr. Greger’s free nutrition newsletter at https://www.nutritionfacts.org/subscribe and get a free recipe from his new HOW NOT TO DIE COOKBOOK. (All proceeds Dr. Greger receives from the sales of his books, DVDs, and speaking engagements go to support the 501c3 nonprofit that runs NutritionFacts.org.) DESCRIPTION: Expanding on the subject of my upcoming appearance on The Dr. Oz Show, a landmark new article in the New England Journal of Medicine shows that choline in eggs, poultry, dairy and fish produces the same toxic TMAO as carnitine in red meat, which may help explain plant-based protection from heart disease and prostate cancer. It was such an honor to be on The Dr. Oz Show last week. It's expected to air during sweeps week next month. I'll announce the date on the NutritionFacts.org Facebook page (https://www.facebook.com/NutritionFacts.org). The TMAO story is such a fascinating twist. It helps explain, for example, Harvard's Meat and Mortality Studies (http://nutritionfacts.org/video/harvards-meat-and-mortality-studies/). The role of the inflammatory "foam" cells (so-called because they're so packed with cholesterol they look foamy under a microscope) affected by TMAO is explained in my video series that starts with Arterial Acne (http://nutritionfacts.org/video/arterial-acne/) and Blocking the First Step of Heart Disease (http://nutritionfacts.org/video/blocking-the-first-step-of-heart-disease/). When I say we normally make all the carnitine we need, there's a rare genetic inborn error of metabolism that affects as many as 1 in 40,000 births, which can result in a need for dietary carnitine. Learn more in my video When Meat Can Be a Lifesaver (http://nutritionfacts.org/video/when-meat-can-be-a-lifesaver/). What does carnitine do? It's involved in energy production in the mitochondria ("power plants") in our cells. The enzyme that uses carnitine to help us burn fat, carnitine palmitoyl transferase, is actually upregulated by about 60% in those eating meat-free diets, which may help explain why those eating plant-based diets tend to be slimmer. More details in my video How to Upregulate Metabolism (http://nutritionfacts.org/video/how-to-upregulate-metabolism/). The prebiotic videos I feature are Fawning Over Flora (http://nutritionfacts.org/video/fawning-over-flora/) and Boosting Good Bacteria in the Colon Without Probiotics (http://nutritionfacts.org/video/boosting-good-bacteria-in-the-colon-without-probiotics/), though other videos describing the beneficial products our friendly flora make from the plants we eat include: · Flaxseeds & Breast Cancer Prevention (http://nutritionfacts.org/video/flaxseeds-breast-cancer-prevention/) · Flax and Fecal Flora (http://nutritionfacts.org/video/flax-and-fecal-flora/) · Sometimes the Enzyme Myth Is True (http://nutritionfacts.org/video/sometimes-the-enzyme-myth-is-true/) And for another behind-the-curtain peek at the egg industry, see Eggs vs. Cigarettes in Atherosclerosis (http://nutritionfacts.org/video/eggs-vs-cigarettes-in-atherosclerosis/) and Egg Industry Blind Spot (http://nutritionfacts.org/video/egg-industry-blind-spot/). Have a question for Dr. Greger about this video? Leave it in the comment section at http://nutritionfacts.org/video/carnitine-choline-cancer-and-cholesterol-the-tmao-connection/ and he'll try to answer it! http://www.NutritionFacts.org • Subscribe: http://www.NutritionFacts.org/subscribe • Donate: http://www.NutritionFacts.org/donate • HOW NOT TO DIE: http://nutritionfacts.org/book • Facebook: http://www.facebook.com/NutritionFacts.org • Twitter: http://www.twitter.com/nutrition_facts • Instagram: http://instagram.com/nutrition_facts_org/ • Google+: https://plus.google.com/+NutritionfactsOrgMD • Podcast: http://nutritionfacts.org/audio/

Power and Distorted Relationships: The Psychology of the “Loyal Slave” and “Mammy” (Lecture)
In the final days of the America Civil War, previously isolated slave populations found the opportunity to run toward Union ships or infantry encampments. Likewise, as federal forces moved onto these plantations and publicly read the Emancipation Proclamation, newly freed slaves migrated in great numbers to the nearest city where the Freedman’s Bureau worked to reunite scattered families and provide various forms of social or economic support. Southern planters watched their slaves leave with dismay, having lived under the delusion that their “human property” saw them as patriarchs who provided daily protection from birth to death. Their “defections” stripped away any pretense of the master-slave relationship. Join Ranger Troy Harman and explore the shattered notions of the “loyal slave” and “Mammy” following the end of the war and the transformation of southern society.

Insidermedicine in 60 - December 15, 2008
From Texas - According to research presented at the San Antonio Breast Cancer Symposium, falling breast cancer rates may be linked to decreased use of hormone therapy. In a study of 16,500 women, researchers found that those who took daily doses of estrogen plus progestin had a 26% higher risk of breast cancer.t was found that the risk went up when hormone therapy was started, rose gradually, then peaked and dropped when therapy was stopped. From California - According to research presented to the American Society for Cell Biology, the immune system works better at night. Researchers infected fruit flies with two different bacteria at different times of day and discovered that those infected at night were more likely to survive than those infected during the day. This is consistent with the hypothesis that the immune system increases restorative functions while the body is not engaged in strenuous metabolic activities. And finally, from Japan - According to research in the journal Heart, women living in a multi-generational household have an increased risk of heart disease. In a study of over 90,000 people, researchers found that women living with a spouse, children and parents had twice the risk for coronary heart disease compared to women who lived only with a spouse. This pattern was not seen in men living in multi-generational households. For Insidermedicine in 60, I'm Dr. Susan Sharma.

Could tissue engineering mean personalized medicine? - Nina Tandon
Each of our bodies is utterly unique, which is a lovely thought until it comes to treating an illness -- when every body reacts differently, often unpredictably, to standard treatment. Tissue engineer Nina Tandon talks about a possible solution: Using pluripotent stem cells to make personalized models of organs on which to test new drugs and treatments, and storing them on computer chips. (Call it extremely personalized medicine.) Talk by Nina Tandon.

Eqbal Ahmad Terrorism, Theirs & Ours 1998
Eqbal Ahmad spoke at CU Boulder, Colorado on October 12, 1998 (just 7 months before his death). He talked about who and what defines terrorism. Eqbal Ahmad (1933/34 – 11 May 1999) was a Pakistani political scientist, writer, journalist, and anti-war activist. He was strongly critical of the Middle East strategy of the United States as well as what he saw as the "twin curse" of nationalism and religious fanaticism in such countries as Pakistan. Ahmad was born in the village of Irki in the Indian state of Bihar. When he was a young boy, his father was murdered over a land dispute in his presence. During the partition of India in 1947, he and his older brothers migrated toPakistan. Ahmad graduated from Forman Christian College in Lahore, Pakistan, in 1951 with a degree in economics. After serving briefly as an army officer, he enrolled at Occidental College in California in 1957. From 1958 to 1960, he studied political science and Middle Eastern history at Princeton University, later earning his PhD From 1960 to 1963, Ahmad lived in North Africa, working primarily in Algeria, where he joined the National Liberation Front and worked with Frantz Fanon.[1] He was offered an opportunity to join the first independent Algerian government and refused in favour of life as an independent intellectual. When he returned to the United States, Ahmad taught at the University of Illinois at Chicago (1964–65) and Cornell University in the school of Labour Relations (1965–68). During these years, he became known as one of the earliest and most vocal opponents of American policies in Vietnam and Cambodia. From 1968 to 1972, he was a fellow at the Adlai Stevenson Institute in Chicago. In 1971, Ahmad was indicted as one of the Harrisburg Seven, with the anti-war Catholic priest Philip Berrigan, Berrigan's future wife, Sister Elizabeth McAlister, and four other Catholic pacifists, on charges of conspiracy to kidnap Henry Kissinger. After fifty-nine hours of deliberations, the jury declared a mistrial, in 1972. From 1972 to 1982, Ahmad was Senior Fellow at the Institute for Policy Studies. From 1973 to 1975, he served as the first director of its overseas affiliate, the Transnational Institute in Amsterdam. In 1982, Ahmad joined the faculty at Hampshire College, a very progressive school, which was the first college in the nation to divest from South Africa, in Amherst, Massachusetts, where he taught world politics and political science. In the early 1990s, Ahmad was granted a parcel of land in Pakistan by Prime Minister Benazir Bhutto's government to build an independent, alternative university, named Khaldunia. Upon his retirement from Hampshire in 1997, he settled permanently in Pakistan, where he continued to write a weekly column, for Dawn, Pakistan's oldest English-language newspaper. Eqbal died in Islamabad in 1999 of heart failure following an operation for colon cancer. Ahmad was the founding chancellor of the then newly established Textile Institute of Pakistan, a textile oriented science, design and business degree awarding institute. The institute actively claims to be driven by the very values Ahmad stood for and awards its most prestigious honour, the Dr. Eqbal Ahmed Achievement Award to one graduate unanimously deemed by the faculty as reflective of Ahmad's values at its annual convocation. Since his death, a memorial lecture series has been established at Hampshire in his honour. Speakers have included Kofi Annan, Edward Said, Noam Chomsky, and Arundhati Roy. Ahmad was admired as "an intellectual unintimidated by power or authority", and collaborated with such left-wing journalists and activists as Noam Chomsky, Edward Said, Howard Zinn, Ibrahim Abu-Lughod, Richard Falk,Fredric Jameson, Alexander Cockburn and Daniel Berrigan. [Ahmad was] perhaps the shrewdest and most original anti-imperialist analyst of the post-war world, especially in the dynamics between the West and the post-colonial states of Asia and Africa. —Edward Said

Dr. Waldmann defined the IL-2 receptor alpha and beta subunits using the daclizumab antibody he discovered, an antibody that is approved by the FDA. He co-discovered IL-15 and performed the first in-human clinical trial with this agent in patients with malignancy. Furthermore, Waldmann defined molecular abnormalities of the common gamma cytokine, Jak/Stat signaling pathway in HTLV-1 associated adult T-cell lymphoma and translated this discovery with a trial of a Jak inhibitor in patients with this disorder.

Dr. Steven Phinney - Keto-Adaptation
Filmed at the Emerging Science of Carbohydrate Restriction and Nutritional Ketosis, Scientific Sessions at The Ohio State University Learn more at https://blog.virtahealth.com/category/science-research/ An impressive body of scientific evidence over the last 15 years documents long term benefits of carbohydrate-restricted, especially ketogenic, diets. We now understand molecular mechanisms and why they work. Popular books and articles now challenge the advice ‘carbohydrates are good and fats are bad.’ Circa mid-19th century urinary ketones were identified in diabetics sealing their toxic label for the next 150 years. Despite work four decades ago showing ketones were highly functional metabolites, they are still misidentified as toxic byproducts of fat metabolism. The vilification of fat by regulatory and popular dogma perpetuates this myth. But the nutrition-metabolic landscape is improving dramatically. A growing number of researchers have contributed to what is now a critical mass of science that provides compelling clinical evidence that ketogenic diets uniquely benefit weight loss, pre-diabetes, and type-2 diabetes. In the last five years, basic scientists have discovered that b-hydroxybutyrate (BHB), the primary circulating ketone, is a potent signaling molecule that decreases inflammation and oxidative stress. BHB has been suggested to be a longevity metabolite, with strong support from recently published mouse studies showing decreased midlife mortality and extended longevity and healthspan. Although type-2 diabetes is often described as a chronic progressive disease, emerging evidence indicates that sustained nutritional ketosis can reverses the disease. There is growing interest in studying potential therapeutic effects of ketosis on cardiovascular diseases, cancer, and neurodegenerative diseases including Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s. There are even reasons certain athletes may benefit from nutritional ketosis and ketone supplements ─ debunking the long-standing dogma that high carbohydrate intake is required to perform optimally. With the support of the well-established Ohio State Food Innovation Center, this conference will bring together the top experts in these fields to share what has been achieved and what remains to be done to advance this exciting field of scientific discovery.

Windber nurses band together, show importance
YOUR DESCRIPTION HAS REACHED THE LIMIT OF CHARACTERS ALLOWED AND WAS CUT. By: Maria Miller WINDBER, Pa. -- The month of March is recognized nationally as Colon Cancer Awareness Month. Colon cancer is the second leading cause of cancer-related deaths in the U.S. every year. According to the American Cancer Society, it claimed more than 50,000 lives last year. Doctors say colonoscopies are the best test to detect cancer, but it can be a scary experience. That's why a team of nurses at Windber Medical Center banded together to put out a powerful message as they got colonoscopies together. "On a day-to-day basis we're explaining this to our patients, so I think together too we thought it was good that we experience this," said Lori Turgeon, a registered nurse at Windber Medical Center. Colonoscopies are a potentially lifesaving test that for some sound like a horrifying experience. "It is scary, but you have to look at the alternatives," Turgeon said. "If you can catch something early, you can deal with it then instead of waiting until it's too late." "It's like anything else. Sometimes the anticipation is sometimes much worse than the actual event," said Dr. Rudolph Schilli, a gastroenterologist at Windber Medical Center. Schilli has been conducting colonoscopies since 1979. He said things are much different today than they were even just a few years ago. He said there's nothing to worry about. "Basically the worst part that everyone complains about is the preparation -- drinking the liquid. It's treated like it's some horrible thing but when you compare that to having stage four colon cancer, and having multiple surgeries and several rounds of chemotherapy, it's very much small potatoes," Schilli said. Colonoscopies are conducted using a tiny camera attached to a thin, flexible tube that's inserted in the rectum and into the large intestine. The procedure is often done while you're asleep. The whole test only takes a few minutes and allows doctors to detect cancer before any symptoms (develop.) Quite often doctors find precancerous polyps that can be removed right on the spot. "Every day we see a lot of patients with a lot of problems and it's just better to catch it early," said Sandra Clark, another registered nurse at the hospital. "The colonoscopy really wasn't that bad. Even the prep. People always talk about the prep ... It's really not that bad at all." "The difficult thing to convince people is when they feel good, that they should have this test," Schilli said. "As it is true for many things, the unseen danger is quite often worse than the visible danger." Take it from Schilli: in addition to having more than 30 years of experience as a highly trained gastroenterologist dealing with colon cancer every day, he had the disease more than a decade ago. "I want to motivate them to have a potentially lifesaving thing," Schilli said. "My chances of survival were very slim and what they should know is this is a message of hope, and a message of joy and it's not necessarily a message of despair." Because he was able to catch it when he did and receive treatment, Schilli said he feels it's his duty to keep spreading such an important message. "It's much easier and more helpful to have colonoscopy at an early stage, and even if they need surgery their outlook and outcome is so much better knowing it years before they would have known it had they had symptoms," Schilli said. Basic screening guidelines suggest white adults without a family history of cancer to start screening around the age of 50 and then again every 10 years. For African-Americans i

Why I changed my mind about nuclear power | Michael Shellenberger | TEDxBerlin
For more information on Michael Shellenberger, please visit www.tedxberlin.de. Michael Shellenberger is co-founder and Senior Fellow at the Breakthrough Institute, where he was president from 2003 to 2015, and a co-author of the Ecomodernist Manifesto. Over the last decade, Michael and his colleagues have constructed a new paradigm that views prosperity, cheap energy and nuclear power as the keys to environmental progress. A book he co-wrote (with Ted Nordhaus) in 2007, Break Through: From the Death of Environmentalism to the Politics of Possibility, was called by Wired magazine “the best thing to happen to environmentalism since Rachel Carson’s Silent Spring,” while Time Magazine called him a “hero of the environment.” In the 1990s, he helped protect the last signi cant groves of old-growth redwoods still in private hands and bring about labor improvements to Nike factories in Asia.

My research area is pediatric HIV infection, but I have extensive experience with the diagnosis and management of all pediatric infections, so I welcome clinical evaluations in all areas of pediatric infection. I believe it is important to listen well and to communicate carefully with both parent and child, so that I can help families decide what would work best for their child. I have five children myself, so I understand that what might work with one child doesn't always work with all.
