How natural are ‘ natural ’ hair dyes?

Cosmetics advertised as natural and organic are a several billion-dollar beauty market, but those labels don’t mean much, experts say. Actress Jessica Alba has benefited from the growing demand for wholesome items as her business, The Honest Company, has obtained a billion-dollar valuation. Major personal-care companies are rolling out “natural” products packaged with green letters and pictures […]Related:More parents believe vaccines are ‘unnecessary,’ while a mumps outbreak growsSingapore Zika cases rise to 56 at one construction site; Malaysia starts border screeningFor Latinos, cancer risks can depend on heritage

Well-balanced levels of tyrosine phosphorylation, maintained by the reversible and coordinated actions of protein tyrosine kinases (PTKs) and protein tyrosine phosphatases (PTPs), are critical for a wide range of cellular processes including growth, di fferentiation, metabolism, migration, and survival. Aberrant tyrosine phosphorylation, as a result of a perturbed balance between the activities of PTKs and PTPs, is linked to the pathogenesis of numerous human diseases, including cancer, suggesting that PTPs may be innovative molecular targets for cancer treatment. Two PTPs that have an important inhibitory role in haemato...

AbstractDespite significant advances in our ability to treat cancer, cytotoxic chemotherapy continues to be the mainstay treatment for many solid tumours. Chemotherapy is commonly associated with a raft of largely manageable adverse events; however, gastrointestinal (GI) toxicity (also termed mucositis) remains a significant challenge with little in the way of preventative and therapeutic options. The inability to manage GI complications likely reflects our incomplete understanding of its aetiology and the idiosyncrasies of each chemotherapeutic agent. This review highlights aims to provide a narrative for the involvement ...

When the Affordable Care Act (ACA) was passed a little over six years ago, it brought with it the promise of health insurance for all Americans. It also sought to begin to shift the paradigm for health care in this country, emphasizing value over volume, and recognizing the importance of prevention coupled with appropriate access to care. By now, it is well known that repealing the ACA could leave nearly 20 million Americans uninsured and simultaneously result in millions of job losses across the country. An associated cost that has been less discussed, but no less relevant, is what repeal could mean for the nation’s...

Scientists have discovered three existing drugs — used for cancer, hepatitis C and for parasitic infections — that they say appear promising against the Zika virus. The experiments were conducted only in lab-grown human cells in petri dishes, but the results were dramatic. Zika is so devastating that the damage it does has been thought to be irreversible. But the researchers […]Related:Pocket Porn: Why Anthony Weiner can’t seem to stop sextingMore parents believe vaccines are ‘unnecessary,’ while a mumps outbreak growsSingapore Zika cases rise to 56 at one ...

Dangr33 is back. Yep, it wasn’t enough for disgraced former New York congressman Anthony Weiner to be caught sexting twice or even to bare his soul in a documentary about his sextcapades. Now he’s been caught sexting a woman, again not his wife, with his young son in the crotch shot. There are many answers […]Related:Scientists find drugs for cancer, hepatitis C can kill Zika in petri dish.

If you're Latino, you could be at risk for colorectal cancer. But the degree of that risk could depend on whether your ancestry traces to Puerto Rico, Mexico, or another Latin American country. A paper published in the September issue of Current Epidemiology Reports discusses the health implications of classifying Latinos as a homogeneous entity while […]Related:More parents believe vaccines are ‘unnecessary,’ while a mumps outbreak growsSingapore Zika cases rise to 56 at one construction site; Malaysia starts border screeningHow natural are ‘natural’ hair dyes?
