breathing easy

We literally cannot breathe. The latest figures, according to the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), show that 1 in 13 of all Americans have asthma, adding up to more than 25 million, or about 8 percent of all adults and children. Figures for asthma in the UK are proportionately just as bad, with 5.4 million British people—or 1 in 11 children and 1 in every 12 adults—currently receiving treatment. And though the number of cases isn’t increasing in the UK, it’s not going down, either. Currently, Great Britain has some of the highest rates of asthma in Europe—so bad, in fact, that every single day about three people can be expected to die from it. Pollution, from car and exhaust fumes, is said to account for about a quarter of…

have your say

Just a card I am a subscriber to your brilliant magazine and, from my own personal experience, can help Val Kearney, who wrote in your Apr/ May 2020 letters page about her difficulties with electrosensitivity. Twenty years ago, while using a work computer, I suddenly felt as if my fingers were plugged into an electricity socket. I was, internally, constantly shaking and could not stop. It got worse on my commute to work when the bus went under power lines. I then experienced the same thing at home and could not function or sleep, though I continued my day job throughout. Shortly after this started, I went to a local osteopath about a bad neck and mentioned these symptoms to him. He immediately knew what it was. He said that I was extra-sensitive…

upfront

Keto diet is anti-diabetic – but only for the first week The high-fat, low-carb ketogenic diet could be good for you—but only for one week. After that, it starts to have negative health effects, a new study suggests. The keto diet is a dramatic way to kick-start the immune system and reverse signs of diabetes and inflammation. And it delivers all those positive effects in just a week. But continue any longer than that, and the body starts storing the fat it should be burning, say researchers from Yale School of Medicine who studied mice on the diet. Eating keto tricks the body into thinking it’s in starvation mode by dramatically reducing carb consumption. As a consequence, the body starts burning fats instead of carbs, which triggers the release of chemicals called ketone bodies as…

don’t mention the warburg: finding cancer’s sweet spot

What’s going on in the body when we have cancer? The standard definition is that healthy cells mutate and grow rapidly. As the abnormal cells cluster, they form a tumor, which can spread to other parts of the body—and this gets treated with chemotherapy, radiotherapy or surgery. It’s a description that leaves a lot unanswered. Why, for instance, do cells mutate in the first place? And how can cancer cells grow far more quickly than healthy cells? The questions aren’t trivial; if we could answer them, we would know how to prevent cancer and treat it without destroying the immune system in the process. Several new theories have emerged that could answer these questions—and both see sugar as playing a key role in the cause and development of cancer. They build on…

stopping the warburg effect

Mutated, cancerous cells feed off glucose, or blood sugar, and then produce lactate, which helps them grow and communicate. One way to stop the Warburg effect, as it’s called, is to eliminate sugar from your diet. Another way is to take curcumin, a compound found in turmeric, which is a spice commonly used in Asian cooking. Researchers have tested it on lines of lung, breast, cervical, prostate and kidney cancer cells, and noted it blocked the cells’ glucose uptake and lactate release.
