Luteolin: How To Reduce Breast Cancer Risk
More than 100 women die of breast cancer in the U.S. every day. It's the second leading cause of cancer deaths in American women. But in my opinion, many of those women really die of a tragic medical error. Let me explain… Millions of women in the U.S. have taken Big Pharma's hormone replacement therapy (HRT). Their doctors prescribe it to try to relieve the symptoms of menopause. Like hot flashes, night sweats, mood swings and weight gain. But what the drug companies try to pass off as hormones are actually synthetic concoctions. They are fake versions of the estrogen and progesterone that your body makes ...

What To Eat When Grief Is Eating You
When you’re grieving – particularly after the death of a loved one – you might experience decision fatigue. This happens in response to the number of decisions you’ve been forced to make over a very short period of time, deteriorating the quality of those decisions. As you can imagine, what you eat – the result of small decisions we make throughout each day – is a common victim of decision fatigue. Suddenly, making “good” choices about what you eat seems strenuous and even debilitating. So you opt out of the decision altogether and forgo eating, or make the easiest and most c...

What Adult Problems Can Start with Fetal Undernutrition?
Discussion Developmental origins of health and disease (DOHaD) is a scientific hypothesis that proposes that fetal nutrition has permanent effects on growth, metabolism, and structure. These changes, or biological programming, are felt to occur at critical periods in fetal development “…when developmental changes in the organism towards increasing complexity, greater plasticity, and more efficient functioning occurs rapidly and may be most easily modified either in favorable or unfavorable directions.” Fetal undernutrition has been studied more than overnutrition, and various nutritional components (prot...

Growing human hearts: The answer is spinach leaves?
[Image from Worcester Polytechnic Institute]We could soon be using spinach to grow human hearts, thanks to new research from the Worcester Polytechnic Institute, the University of Wisconsin-Madison and Arkansas State University. One of the problems that researchers have faced is how to create a vascular system that can deliver blood deep into developing tissues. There hasn’t been much success with 3D printing vascular networks to provide the transportation for oxygen, nutrients and other essential molecules that allow for continued tissue growth. Even though plants and animals transport fluids differently, they have ...

WORCESTER(CBS) – Biomedical engineers at Worcester Polytechnic Institute are working on a patch for diseased hearts that uses spinach leaves. When mixed with human stem cells, the veins in spinach could become heart muscle that pumps blood when the original organ is infected or damaged. “And so we haven’t actually put blood in there we put dye in there and we put small particles that represent blood cells and those flow right through the leaves,” said biomedical engineering professor Glenn Gaudette. During the process, the green of the spinach is removed, leaving just the cellulose structure. Spinac...
