Studies show that animals have evolved mechanisms for protecting themselves from infection and illness. Did you know, for example, that chimpanzees eat plants not just for their nutritional value, but to ward off disease? This is important for humans because we share about 99% of our DNA with these animals, making them our closest living relatives. So instead […]

Dr. Joel Fuhrman, author […]

Crystals made of proteins help cure cancer Crystals made of proteins are revolutionizing cancer research and treatment. They are not the usual crystals found in nature made of minerals but are man-made in a laboratory. They are tiny, clear and colorless, barely visible to the naked eye. As they are also very fragile, they break easily. So […]

Few would have though it possible when former US president Jimmy Carter announced in March that the deadly cancer that had been found in his liver and brain last year had disappeared.

InSitu Foundation is a tax-exempt non-profit organization dedicated to training dogs to detect cancer in humans. According to the Foundation, “Dogs’ accuracy levels have been proven to be 88% specific, and 99% sensitive in the early detection of lung and breast cancer.” So just as dogs have been trained to find narcotics, explosives, insects (lice or […]
