Our recent research about mitochondrial function has just been published! It was a lot of work, but we know it will help forward the understanding of the causes of mitochondrial dysfunction and role in health & disease.

Mitochondria are the “energy factory” of our body, but dysfunctional mitochondria are prevalent in many major diseases, including Diabetes, heart disease, metabolic syndrome, Cancer, and even Alzheimer’s.

This is important research and we need your continued support. Thank you! 🙏

The relation between Type 2 Diabetes and Alzheimer's disease keeps getting stronger.

Our research, and a growing number of scientific studies showing the relationship. The source cause, mitochondrial dysfunction and insulin resistance, are hallmarks of both diseases.

A new study provides a good summary of current research:

In a recent study, researchers at UCLA found that a drug can limit the growth of certain lung cancer cells, interrupting their metabolism. According to their research, the drug, pacritinib, can reduce glucose consumption in squamous cell lung cancer cells by targeting a protein found in many cancer cells that plays a role in promoting their growth via glucose consumption. 

Researchers had previously attempted to target the glucose consumption of cancer cells, but this had also inhibited healthy cells from growing. “This is not just characteristic of this particular cancer, it’s consistent across probably 90% of cancers” researchers added. 

If further studies prove effective, researchers will focus on testing it in patients with clinical trials.

Nanoparticles hold massive promise in the near future for cancer treatment. Nanoparticles are only about 1/40,000 the size of a hair strand but can be loaded with anti-cancer drugs which are able to circulate freely in our blood, protecting cancer drugs until they detect, bind and are absorbed by tumor cells, then released directly into the nucleus of and killing cancer cells. 

This precise mechanism of nanoparticle delivery avoids damaging normal cells in our bodies that traditional anticancer drugs often have.

We have developed a nanoparticle in our lab capable of detecting cancer, but need more funds to continue our research. Help us continue our battle. 🙏

Three recent studies have revealed a link between eating a lot of ultra-processed foods, such as soft drinks, chips, ice-cream, sweetened breakfast cereals, packaged soups, chicken nuggets, hotdogs and fries, with a higher risk of one of the most common and deadliest forms of cancer - colorectal.

About 90 percent of colorectal cancers and deaths are thought to be preventable with regular colorectal cancer screenings, exercise, healthy diet and weight.

About 1 in 2 of us will get cancer in our lifetime… It can happen to our friends, family - anyone. Despite the constant advancements in cancer research, many of the treatments used today are the same as those from nearly four decades ago. If one field desperately needs a new way of thinking, that is cancer research. We should be closer to curing the disease, but in many instances, the establishment of cancer research is not ready yet to take that step.

While funding is crucial to beating cancer, it is equally important that the cancer research community as a whole embraces a new perspective. We all have a part to play in supporting the vital research that will help cure cancer, we need to keep our hopes up, and we need to keep fighting. 

Please join us in supporting this important cause. 🙏

Arginine is an amino acid found in many foods and has a number of important functions in the body. However, recent research at Rockefeller University shows that it is an essential nutrient for cancer cells too. It’s also one the few amino acids that has been shown to regulate how immune cells react to cancer and other sorts of immunologic triggers.

In their lab, researchers grew cancer cells, and then starved them of arginine. The result was cancer cells accumulate so many mutations that they may trigger an immune system response. The findings have promising implications for immunotherapy. “By starving a cancer cell, perhaps we can promote the gain of new mutations that can then be recognized and eliminated by the immune system,” researchers said.
