Brain cancer is a malignant tumor that causes people to die.

Brain cancer is really deadly and kills millions each year....

However, having been on a ketogenic diet (KD) myself for 2 years and after having read this blog post, I began immediately pushing for putting him on a KD as an adjunct to conventional treatment (chemotherapy and radiation). My wife was a bit skeptical until she saw the massive glucose uptake by these tumors in his initial PET scans. The oncologists and oncological nutritionists were both skeptical and fearful. (That’s another story.)

The probability of the this particular chemotherapy being active against this disease was about 25% (and it was the best shot we had), so we are very pleased with the results so far. We cannot, of course, separate out the effects of the KD (if any) from the chemotherapy, but we believe that using a metabolic treatment in combination with conventional cytotoxic chemotherapy and radiation can only help. Nevertheless, as one oncologist told us, “you can fit a million cells on the head of a pin, and it takes about 1 centimeter of cells in a tumor to become visible on a PET scan,” so we know that “no evidence of disease” does not necessarily mean cancer free.

Thanks so much for this fine 1000 word overview of the subject how cancer cells feed. It was the suggestion I start on Enbrel for my AS (ankylosing spondylitis) and its connection with cancer development over time that got me to researching again. Funny part is I learned a low carb/protein but high fat (MCT type fats) was good for AS. After only 10 days on this diet my joint pain is down by 50%+ and my mobility is up by the same amount (subjective data 🙂 ) plus I have lost a couple pounds. This AM I blew a .023 BAC% reading (.125 on the metric scale) using a $15 meter off eBay but have more studying to do to understand the meaning of these acetone readings. I do hold an OD degree from SCO, Memphis TN 1986 which is helpful understanding research. Will read more of the links you added at the end. Thanks again!

Plus, students have been caught cheating and are still cheating with their cell phones.

TEE are held to be the second leading cause of death in cancer patients [8] and patients with TEE over all have poorer outcomes with a 2 fold increase in death rate within 2 years of diagnosis in patients with breast cancer [9]....

In summary, although not enough time has passed for research to agree on the exact impact of cell phones on brain tumors and other health risks, the evidence so far suggests that we should be cautious. While hands-free driving laws are resulting in greater use of ear pieces in cars, more and more people are opting not to pay for land lines and are relying exclusively on their cell phone. As a result, adults and children are holding cell phones to theirs ears for hours each day.

Why does a student even need to use a cell phone during school.

You can't ethically test theeffects of cigarettes by requiring a control group to smoke.

It is certainlylegitimate to be concerned about these seven cancer clusters, but beforeconcluding that cell phones have anything to do with it, we'd need moredata: how many of the other 47,000 masts have cancer clusters?

The brain lets a person know if they’re hungry, tired, happy, sad, angry, upset, or excited all while reminding the body’s lungs to breathe, heart to beat, stomach to digest food, and many other involuntary actions.1 While the brain is a very efficient organ, things can go wrong and affect the brain negatively....


No, Cell Phones Don't Cause Brain Cancer - WebMD

Meanwhile, cell phone companies continue to insist that the evidence shows that their cell phones are safe. Cell phone companies tend to draw conclusions based on the studies they funded themselves, and those studies have always found cell phones are safe. In addition, many of those studies were conducted years ago, when cell phone usage was much lower for the average person than it is today.

19/12/2000 · Like many Americans, Maribeth Hagan has come to depend on her cell phone more than she ever imagined she would.

Underlying the controversy about cell phone radiation is the belief by most physicists that cell phone radiation could not possibly cause cancer. Although epidemiological research seems to suggest otherwise, that is undermined by other factors: cancer takes a very long time to develop, cell phone technology and frequency of usage has changed dramatically, and any link between cancer and cell phones could possibly be caused by unknown exposures or traits. Additionally, there is potential for biases and errors in the collection of data in these studies, which could result in inaccurate conclusions. For example, many researchers questioned the Interphone study because they thought that risk was underestimated. Research is needed to determine the true effect of cell phones on different cancers.

D oes radiation from cell phones cause brain cancer—or doesn’t it

As for me, I will like to state categorically that cell phones pros and cons depends on individuals involved. One either uses it to benefit him or to his detriment. But I believe the advantages out ways the disadvantages. However, I will like to ask if anyone could enlighten me more on the effect (negative) of the cell phone on students’ performances in their final year exam.

Do Cell Phones Cause Brain Cancer or Not? - the …

There is a consensus among researchers that retrospective studies present problems and that prospective studies are needed. Retrospective studies are ones that look back in time to study or measure risk, such as whether past cell phone use makes a person more likely to develop cancer or other health problems. But people may not remember their past behaviors accurately and researchers have no way to verify the information. Unless they use phone records, retrospective studies are also subject to “recall bias,” which means people with a disease might remember the past differently than people without a disease. In the case of cell phones, people with brain tumors may exaggerate their past cell phone use in an attempt to find an explanation for the inexplicable. An analysis published in 2015 shows that information used for many retrospective studies may not be reliable because numerous brain tumor cases are not reported to the Swedish Cancer Register, the database that has commonly been used to try to disprove any connection between cell phones and tumors.
