    On her YouTube channel, Mari Lopez claimed that her raw, vegan lifestyle “cured” her of breast cancer. But when the disease spread to her blood, liver and lungs, she decided to try chemotherapy and radiotherapy. It appears, however, the intervention was too late, as her niece Liz Johnson has revealed that Lopez died of breast cancer in December 2017. Lopez told viewers of her YouTube channel Liz & Mari, which she hosted with Johnson, that her faith in God and diet consisting entirely of plant-based products rid her body of cancer in four months. She also claimed in one video...

    A vegan YouTube star who claimed her plant-based diet 'cured' her cancer and lesbianism has died from the disease. Mari Lopez, who ran the food channel at home in Houston, Texas with her niece Liz Johnson, told thousands of viewers she had rejected traditional treatment for breast cancer in favor of a 90-day juice cleanse when she was diagnosed in 2015.
  • Researchers discover novel mechanism linking changes in mitochondria to cancer cell death

    Credit: University of Notre Dame ___________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ o stop the spread of cancer, cancer cells must die. Unfortunately, many types of cancer cells seem to use innate mechanisms that block cancer cell death, therefore allowing the cancer to metastasize. While seeking to further understand cancer cell death, researchers at the University of Notre Dame discovered that the activation of a specific enzyme may help suppress the spread of tumors. The findings, published in Nature Cell Biology, demonstrate that the enzyme RIPK1 decreases the number of mitochondria in a cell. This loss of mitochondria leads to oxidative stress that can potentially...

    Last year, Townhall reported on President Donald J. Trump's generous donation to a campaign volunteer's father, Don Bouvet, for bladder cancer treatment. Today, Bouvet says the gift of $10,000 from the president saved his life and that he is now cancer free.Don Bouvet’s son, Shane, was a volunteer on President Trump's presidential campaign. After meeting with the president the night before his inauguration, Shane informed Trump of his dad’s condition with bladder cancer. President Trump was so touched by Shane’s dedication to both his father and his country, that the former real estate and reality TV mogul cut a check...

    A new approach to fighting cancerous tumors in mice by Stanford University researchers has been found to not only eliminate the tumors they targeted, it eliminated all cancer found in the mice. The researchers used a one-time application of two agents injected directly into a tumor. The agents work by stimulating the immune cells only inside the tumor itself, but doctors found some of the T-cells stimulated kept on working after their initial job was done. Dr. Ronald Levy, senior author of the study published in the journal Science Translation Medicine, says one of the agents (CpG oligonucleotide) works with...

It has the most expensive labor laws in the country – a high minimum wage, closed shop and pricey workers’ compensation, short-term disability and family leave mandates. Its tort system, also among the worst in the nation, costs California businesses $10 billion a year.It goes out of its...

    Injecting minute amounts of two immune-stimulating agents directly into solid tumors in mice can eliminate all traces of cancer in the animals, including distant, untreated metastases, according to a study by researchers at the Stanford University School of Medicine. The approach works for many different types of cancers, including those that arise spontaneously, the study found. The researchers believe the local application of very small amounts of the agents could serve as a rapid and relatively inexpensive cancer therapy that is unlikely to cause the adverse side effects often seen with bodywide immune stimulation. "When we use these two agents...

    The lawsuit, first filed in the Los Angeles County Superior Court in 2010, was brought against a number of companies by a nonprofit group called the Council for Education and Research on Toxics (CERT), CNN reported Wednesday. The suit alleges that chains such as Starbucks and 7-Eleven "failed to provide clear and reasonable warning" to patrons that coffee contains levels of a suspected carcinogen known as acrylamide. Acrylamide is a chemical that's often linked to cooked foods, such as French fries, baked goods and breakfast cereals. But the science on its cancer-causing potential has been mixed. ... "Acrylamide is one...

    Researchers at Johns Hopkins Kimmel Cancer Center researchers developed a single blood test that screens for eight common cancer types and helps identify the location of the cancer, AsiaNet Pakistan reported. The test, called CancerSEEK, is a unique noninvasive, multi-analyte test that simultaneously evaluates levels of eight cancer proteins and the presence of cancer gene mutations from circulating DNA in the blood. The test is aimed at screening for eight common cancer types that account for more than 60 percent of cancer deaths in the US. Five of the cancers covered by the test currently have no screening test. “The...

    MIT biologists have designed a new peptide that can disrupt a key protein that many types of cancers, including some forms of lymphoma, leukemia, and breast cancer, need to survive. The new peptide targets a protein called Mcl-1, which helps cancer cells avoid the cellular suicide that is usually induced by DNA damage. By blocking Mcl-1, the peptide can force cancer cells to undergo programmed cell death. "Some cancer cells are very dependent on Mcl-1, which is the last line of defense keeping the cell from dying. It's a very attractive target," says Amy Keating, an MIT professor of biology...

    2018 has barely finished dawning, and already, the pharmaceutical industry once more has egg on its face from outrageous price hikes. This time, the culprit is pharmaceutical startup NextSource, which apparently has taken a 40-year-old cancer drug known as lomustine, and ruthlessly hiked its price from $50/pill in 2013, to $768/pill now. In other words, they’ve raised the price of the drug by over 1400% over the past five years. NextSource’s defense for why this has happened has to be read to be believed. CBS News reports that the company’s CEO, Robert DiCrisci, claims that the company set the price based on the...

    John V. Tunney, whose successful campaign for a California seat in the U.S. Senate became the basis for the 1972 Robert Redford film “The Candidate,” has died. He was 83. Tunney died of prostate cancer Friday at a home in the Brentwood section of Los Angeles, his brother, Jay Tunney, told The Associated Press. Tunney was among the youngest people elected to the U.S. Senate in the past century when he won his seat in 1970 at age 36. He then became one of the youngest in recent history to lose a Senate seat when he was defeated after just...
