Spanish researchers from the Val d’Hebron Research Institute (VHIO) in Barcelona have discovered a way to detect breast cancer at an early stage, by analyzing a woman’s milk.
“Breast cancer breakthrough” while revealing the secret of the high risk of certain women contracting the disease!
Cancer Discovery magazine indicates that researchers have proven that breast milk when infected with breast cancer contains the DNA of the malignant tumor. Researchers discovered this in milk samples taken from women 18 months before they were diagnosed with breast cancer. It was also discovered in 13 of 15 women diagnosed with breast cancer during or after pregnancy, while blood analysis showed that only one of them was infected.
“During local damage, DNA is released into the blood in low concentration, but it is easy to detect in breast milk, which makes it a potential tool for diagnosis,” says Cristina Saura, head of the research team.
According to her, the new method will allow for the diagnosis of breast cancer with high effectiveness in pregnant women and women who have recently given birth, as it is difficult to diagnose the disease in them due to the physiological changes that occur in their bodies.
The researchers plan to continue this work on a larger scale, including taking milk samples from 5,000 women at risk of breast cancer.
A dangerous concentration of bisphenol А has been discovered in the bodies of most Europeans
Researchers recently discovered that a small amount of the chemical “bisphenol A”, found in many products we use daily, harms the human immune system and endocrine glands.
The media office of the European Environment Agency indicates that the results of the biosurvey showed that 71 percent of the population of 11 European countries are exposed to the influence of the dangerous substance “bisphenol A (BPA). This substance is found in some types of plastics and metals, and in epoxy resin used to paint water pipes, and it enters the body through foods and drinks.
“Thanks to an innovative EU research project on human biomonitoring, we have discovered that Bisphenol A poses a much greater health risk than previously thought,” says Lena Jala-Mononen, Executive Director of the European Environment Agency.
Yalla Munin calls for taking these results seriously and taking the necessary measures at the European level to reduce exposure to chemicals that pose a health risk.
Human biomonitoring data included the concentration of BPA in urine samples from 2,756 people in 11 European countries collected between the years 2014-2020. This substance was detected on average in 92 percent of participants, and its concentration exceeds the upper limit allowed by the European Food Safety Authority. The results showed that the rate of abuse was lowest among Swiss residents, 71 percent of participants. The highest violation occurred among 100 percent of participants from France, Luxembourg, and Portugal.
It has become clear to scientists that the main source of this substance is canned foods. Even small doses negatively affect the immune system and reproduction and cause skin itching.
Professor yemelin : A professor reveals a “hidden sign” of Alzheimer’s disease
Professor Andrei Yemelin, a neurologist at the Military Medical Academy, explained the unclear signs that may indicate the appearance of Alzheimer’s disease in humans.
According to him, the classic known signs of the disease, such as memory loss, do not develop immediately. But the relatives of the elderly person should be careful if they notice that he has lost interest in the reality surrounding him, or in one of his hobbies or anything he was fond of.
Alzheimer’s disease is considered one of the most common types of dementia (loss of cognitive abilities), in which the brain stops performing its functions correctly, and problems with memory, thinking, and behavior begin. This disease is usually observed in the elderly, but rare cases of early onset of the disease have been recorded.
The professor points out that scientists continue to search for an effective way to treat people with the disease, as well as procedures that can prevent infection and its development and help improve brain health. For example, in the United States, a drug has recently been approved to treat this disease, with the innovators claiming that the drug Leqembi (trade name) is effective in fighting symptoms and slowing the progression of the disease.
Researchers from the Italian University of Verona have come to the conclusion that a cup of coffee can serve as an excellent preventive measure against the development of Alzheimer’s disease.
