The Importance of Detoxification for Health
Spring is upon us, a perfect time of year for detoxification. As the seasons change, many of us are motivated to do 'spring cleaning' in our homes and gardens. The same need applies to our bodies. When the body is detoxified, it can function more efficiently and gain resilience. Physicians have been seeing increasing symptoms of toxicity in their patients over the last few decades. Hormone imbalances, obesity, mental fog, memory loss, fatigue, lack of vitality, metabolic syndrome, sleep disturbances are all manifestations of a toxic body. Conventional medicine does not acknowledge toxicity as an important health issue, but numerous studies have shown this to be the underlying cause of many chronic symptoms experienced today, including the rising rates of cancer over the past two decades. A November 2015 article in the NY Times discusses the major risks of every day contaminants in our bodies and a statement made by the International Federation of Gynecology and Obstetrics claims that these toxins are interfering with reproductive health. "Emerging evidence ties endocrine-disrupting chemical exposure to two of the biggest public health threats facing society -- diabetes and obesity," the Endocrine Society said in announcing its 50-page "scientific statement." It added that "mounting evidence also ties endocrine disrupters to infertility, prostate cancer, undescended testicles, testicular cancer, breast cancer, uterine cancer, ovarian cancer, and neu...
I think it is entirely appropriate to greet the advent of senolytics with enthusiasm. These treatments are the first legitimate rejuvenation therapies to successfully target one of the root causes of aging, the accumulation of lingering senescent cells in old tissues. The first human trial data is approaching publication, but even before it arrives, the evidence to date strongly suggests that meaningful levels of rejuvenation can be achieved in old people at a very low cost. The first senolytic drugs (such as dasatinib and navitoclax) and plant extracts (such as fisetin and piperlongumine) cost very little, and remove only...
Naturally grown tissues are intricately structured, and the physical properties of tissue derive from the patterning of cells and their behavior in generating a supporting extracellular matrix. This natural complexity ensures that there is still a great deal of work to be accomplished when it comes to the 3-D bioprinting of functional tissue structures; not all tissues can be produced using the current state of the art systems, or at least not in a useful state. The work here is an example of the sort of incremental advance needed to produce tissues that are closer in form and function to those growing naturally inside bod...
Authors: Świderska A, Wiśniewski M, Wiergowski M, Krakowiak A, Sein Anand J Abstract BACKGROUND: Poisonings constitute a significant medical, social and economic problem worldwide. In Poland there is no nationwide registry of poisonings, which results in a lack of accurate epidemiological data. Few publications dealing with the problem are based on data obtained from toxicology units and therefore do not include information about cases treated at emergency departments and other non-toxicology units. METHODS: We analyzed all admissions due to poisonings reported to the Polish National Health Fund by all hospit...
Kaiser Khan, now 24, , from Stratford-upon-Avon, Warwickshire, was eventually forced to drop out of Liverpool John Moores University when his itching became unbearable.
PROSTATE cancer symptoms are not always apparent in the early stages because they usually don ’t show until the tumour has grown and put pressure on other parts of the body. But when signs do begin to show, one to be wary of is in the hips.

Only a small proportion of cases of dementia are thought to be inherited– the cause of the vast majority is unknown. Now, a team of scientists believe they may have found an explanation: spontaneous errors in our DNA that arise as cells divide and reproduce.
