Do Soybeans Cause Breast Cancer?

Soybeans are one of the more controversial foods out there today. Some folks make soybeans a staple of their diet—especially vegetarians, who eat tofu as a major source of protein. And there are others who swear off everything soy, knowing that a number of the chemicals in soy mimic human hormones in unpredictable ways. And […]

Cheesy Cruciferous Casserole

Cruciferous vegetables are my favorite anti-cancer vegetables. There’s a lot of clear clinical research on the health benefits of broccoli, brussels sprouts, and their relatives. However, because they can be somewhat bitter when cooked, cruciferous vegetables are ones I find my patients most reluctant to try. One way to begin enjoying a food you’re less […]

Mammograms don’t prevent cancer deaths

Everyone’s heard that, after 40, women should be getting periodic mammograms. However, new research suggests that mammograms aren’t all they’re cracked up to be. As a diagnostic tool, it turns out that mammograms may not change the odds you will develop late-stage breast cancer, compared to having no mammogram at all. Considering the entire point […]

Early Disease Detection Tests

There’s a brand-new electronic “nose”—a diagnostic machine that measures chemicals, associated with various illnesses, in your breath. And, although it isn’t approved for clinical use yet, this little device should prove to be a boon for diagnosis, helping us spot a plethora of diseases long before we even start to suffer symptoms. So, until this […]

Some of the most powerful and widely used diagnostic tools we have today can also be terribly dangerous.  While it’s true that X-rays, CAT scans, mammograms, and PET scans have revolutionized health care, the high levels of radiation they can expose you to is way up on my list of serious, but unnecessary, threats to […]

Exercise Fights Cancer

Woman on Exercise Bike
We’ve known for a long time that physically active people show reduced risk of certain cancers. Most studies have focused on the correlation between exercise and the more common cancers—breast cancer in women, and colon and lung cancers in women and men. But a recent study sought links between exercise and other cancers. And, boy, […]

New Cancer Diagnostic Tool

Cancer is complicated. So the more tools we have to diagnose it, the better. And there’s a new one that’s gaining in popularity right now. And, without doubt, it’s beneficial in some circumstances. But not all. As you’ll see today, when it comes to cancer, we’ve got to use everything we’ve got. Relying on just […]

The best cancer prevention is…health

Along with my work at The Center for New Medicine, I speak to specialized groups all across the country. What you get for free in my newsletters, I’m asked to share with numerous exclusive and prestigious organizations whose members are concerned about their health.

Prostate Cancer Treatments: Temperatures and Lasers

Here are three words pretty much guaranteed to scare an adult male: Erectile…dysfunction…incontinence.

No disrespect for practitioners here—many considered these the best options available. But today, I offer gentlemen three words that change everything: 100 […]
