  • War on Cancer part 2 - winning the war

    Winning the War on Cancer In the previous article ‘losing the war on cancer’ I discussed the current failure of chemotherapy to turn the tide of increasing incidence of cancer. I looked at the reasons why this was the case. I discussed the clues from Nature that suggest that the cancer prevention actions of the phyto-nutrients in fruit and vegetables are likely to be due to a range of nutrient-gene interactions and not just an anti-oxidant effect. Specific phyto-nut...
  • War on Cancer part 1 losing the war

    Losing the War on Cancer In 1971, President Richard Nixon announced the War on Cancer and promised a cure by the 1977 bicentennial. In 2009 death rates from cancer are significantly increased and.....no cure is forthcoming! The failure of chemotherapy to control cancer has become apparent even to the oncology establishment. Scientific American featured a recent cover story entitled: “The War on Cancer — it’s Being Lost.” In it, eminent epidemiologist John C. Bailar III...
  • Melatonin A Universal Guardian?

The fact remains that this molecule seems to be Universally conserved across animal but also plant species; this fact alone should draw attention to its likely universal importance.It was named melatonin because of its ability in certain fish, reptiles and amphibians to lighten ski...
  • More Challenges to Conventional Medical Thinking: Static Magnets as Medicine: Part 2

    More Challenges to Conventional Medical Thinking: Static Magnets as Medicine: Part 2 This is the second of a three part article where Dr Eccles looks at the scientific evidence for the effects of static magnetic fields on human health. There is much contemporary reference to their use in pain relief but in Part 3, Dr Eccles will discuss an exciting development in non-hormonal menopause symptom relief and the evidence for their use in promoting wound healing. Physiologi...
  • More Challenges to Conventional Medical Thinking: Static Magnets as Medicine: Part 1

    More Challenges to Conventional Medical Thinking: Static Magnets as Medicine: Part 1 This is the first of a three part article where Dr Eccles looks at the historical and scientific evidence for the effects of static magnetic fields on human health. There is much reference to their use in pain relief but in Part 3, Dr Eccles discusses an exciting development in non-hormonal menopause symptom relief. Introduction It has been known for some time that the behaviou...
  • A FRESH LOOK AT HEALTH SCREENING: Tomorrow’s Screening Today

    A FRESH LOOK AT HEALTH SCREENING: Tomorrow’s Screening Today For some years now I have been working with Breast Thermal Imaging which is based on detection of infrared heat emission from the breast tissue. The latter is a consequence of increased metabolism and/or new blood vessel formation both of which produce heat that can be detected much sooner than the structural changes seen on a mammogram. Over the last 5 years my work on nutritional medicine and cellular heal...
