The Proven & Unproven Health Benefits Of Honey
By Sandee LaMotte, CNN (CNN) — Move over, prehistoric bears. Humans have loved honey since the Stone Age. Rock art pictures of honey harvesting, which at first glance look like drawings from A.A. Milne’s Winnie-the-Pooh, date to about 8000 B.C. Beeswax has been found on pottery dating as far back as 7000 B.C., most likely used for waterproofing. The ancient Egyptians offered honey to the gods and then joined the Greeks, Romans and Chinese in using it as a salve for wounds and a treatment for fevers and stomach ailments. Today, proponents of honey tout its miraculous healing properties, claiming that it can prev...

Gastric cancer: A new strategy used by Helicobacter pylori to target mitochondria
(Institut Pasteur) Scientists from the Institut Pasteur and CNRS have recently identified new strategies used by Helicobacter pylori bacteria to infect cells. By specifically targeting mitochondria these bacteria, despite being extracellular, can optimize infection in the host. These findings pave the way for new strategies to combat H. pylori infection, which is associated with most cases of gastric cancer and several other gastric disorders. The results were published on Nov. 21 in the journal Scientific Reports. (Source: EurekAlert! - Cancer)

Acid reflux drugs linked to increased stomach cancer risk
Conclusion PPIs are commonly used medicines for acid reflux. This may seem like alarming news for the many people in the UK who take them, but it's important to remember that the overall risk of stomach cancer is still very low. This study has several limitations that mean we should be cautious about the results: This type of study can't prove PPIs caused the increased risk of cancer. The increased risk could be down to other factors. Researchers were unable to adjust their figures to take account of some relevant confounding factors, such as alcohol and tobacco use, as these weren't routinely recorded. Almost all the pati...

How To Prevent Cancer Naturally
Why is it that if you’re unfortunate enough to get cancer, your only option is to see an oncologist who will almost certainly recommend radiation, surgery or chemotherapy drugs? One reason is that it’s all they know. Conventional doctors are only educated to use the tools of modern medical technology. But there’s another reason that’s very concerning… Chemotherapy drugs are making oncologists very, very rich. You see, most doctors will just write you a prescription for a drug. But not oncologists. They buy these drugs at wholesale prices then sell them to cancer patients at marked-up prices....

Now we report not on Ötzi himself, but on his stomach bacteria, which tells us about his life and the history of human geography.
