    Diabetes, Cancer and Father of Oncology. Cancer patients with diabetes are also much more likely to die than those without diabetes, and part of that might be explained by the decline in medication adherence, the researchers noted. Diabetes is typically divided into two major subtypes, type 1 and type 2 diabetes, while cancer is typically classified by its anatomic origin. Secondary diseases related to diabetes affec...

      Iron-Deficiency Treatment for Pancreatic Cancer. Scientists are working to find new ways to treat pancreatic cancer. Researchers believe that cancer of the pancreas is a genetic disease which means that it is caused by changes (mutations) in DNA. These changes can be inherited or they can be acquired. Treatment for cancer of the pancreas includes surgery, chemotherapy and radiotherapy. By the time pancreatic cancer i...

        Cell mutations accumulate as people age. Iron gradually builds up in the cells and tissues over the course of the human life span. Iron accumulation is often a consequence of aging. Sadly, owing to physician and patient ignorance, the significant dangers posed by excessive iron in the body remain little known and often overlooked. What Causes Blood Cancer? Blood cancers, or hematologic cancers, unlike solid organ tum...

          Mutations Linked to Blood Cancers Rise with Age? Cellular Iron Overload Creates Blood Cancers. Blood cancer is an umbrella term for cancers that affect the blood, bone marrow and lymphatic system. There are three main groups of blood cancer: leukemia, lymphoma and myeloma. Cancer starts when cells in a part of the body acquire cellular iron overload. Cancer cells are iron-rich (iron-saturated, iron-overloaded) cells....

            Numerous psychosocial factors influence patients' decisions about cancer treatment. Stage 4 melanoma (advanced melanoma) means the cancer has spread from where it started to another part of the body. According to Cancer Research UK, doctors use biological therapy, chemotherapy, radiotherapy, and surgery (for melanoma that has spread). There is a widespread belief in a conspiracy to hide cancer cures. Cancer is a mult...

              Some researchers believe that prostate cancers are caused by the accumulation of genetic mutations. Some mutations occur spontaneously when cells in the body copy their genetic material and an error is introduced into a gene. Other mutations occur in germline cells (sperm and egg) and then subsequently can be passed from parent to child, from one generation to the next. Most prostate cancers aren’t caused by in...

                Jessica Citronberg said: I think the better route to go would just be to have a healthy diet. Iron-rich red meat - beef, pork, lamb - can increase the risk of colon cancer. Cancerous cells are iron-overloaded (iron-rich, iron-saturated) cells. Primary tumors always develop at body sites of excessive iron deposits. Some might expect that since the vegan diet contains a form of iron that is not that well absorbed, vega...

                  Local/Regional Iron Overload and Lung Cancer Risk. Lung cancer is the deadliest type of cancer for both men and women. Each year, more people die of lung cancer than of breast, colon, and prostate cancers combined. Lung cancer treatments (surgery, radiotherapy, chemotherapy, biological therapy, etc.) can't successfully beat lung cancer. Clinical methods of iron deprivation can successfully suppress inoperable lung tu...

                    New cancer classification system may revolutionize diagnoses and treatments. Cancers may be classified by their primary site of origin or by their histological or tissue types or even by their genetic and molecular types. Human cancer classification is currently based on the idea of cell of origin, light and electron microscopic attributes of the cancer. Recent innovative techniques in biology have provided a wealth ...
