New hope for prostate cancer diagnosis

Prostate cancer is responsible for around 3300 deaths each year in Australia alone, but new research is signalling significant advance in diagnosis and prediction of the disease.

Professor Doug Brooks from the University of South Australia has used his knowledge of the transport systems inside cells to deliver hope to Australian males.

As highlighted by the continued growth year on year of the Movember Foundation, where men grow moustaches to raise funds and highlight awareness of prostate cancer, the disease is a concern for many men. Around 20,000 new cases are diagnosed each year and the level of care and treatment men receive varies greatly.

It’s also worth noting that prostate cancer is one of the most treatable forms of cancer, if diagnosed early enough. There are also two types of prostate cancer, one type involves a tumour which doesn’t grow very rapidly, whereas the other has a very aggressive tumour, which needs a more aggressive form of treatment.

During his research, Professor Brooks has determined that prostate cancer alters 19 genes that are involved in the transport of cell materials. The next step for Professor Brooks and his team at UniSA is to retrospectively examine samples from a controlled group of patients, with a clinical trial to follow. From this, it is hoped a better form of diagnosis than the maligned PSA test could be developed.

    Why not just raise Glutathione levels to a comfortable high level? This would appear one of the best ways to hopefully avoid many of the "Cancer" problems and other issues with sun damage etc. We can now raise Glutathione levels effectively, safely, easily with NO side effects and minimal cost. There have been nearing 100,000 studies done on the benefits of raising Glutathione levels. New technology is available but rarely acknowledged here.

    CANCER, to be or not to be? THAT is the question.

    Folks can make up their own mind...this is interesting, and you can get Amydgalin or B 17 capsules from Apricot kernals in Australia but much less expensive online from the UK. just thought this video was interesting. I do not know if cancer can be stopped if it is so advanced that organs are so damaged, however if B 17 can help and halt the spread then that is a good thing isn't it.

    First of all for me has always and will always remain praying to the Lord for healing, also I know God has given man plants for healing and we know that even morphine comes from a plant, so I always look to the scriptures.

    'And God said, Let the earth bring forth grass, the herb yielding seed, and the fruit tree yielding fruit after his kind, whose seed is in itself, upon the earth: and it was so. And the earth brought forth grass, and herb yielding seed after his kind, and the tree yielding fruit, whose seed was in itself, after his kind: and God saw that it was good. And God said, Behold, I have given you every herb bearing seed, which is upon the face of all the earth, and every tree, in the which is the fruit of a tree yielding seed; to you it shall be for meat.' Genesis 1:11, 12, 29

    This is where folks might obtain B 17, so have a look if you want; 3 months supply is only about $60 including postage http://www.ebay.com.au/itm/121825082026

    You can watch a vidoe about B 17 here www.youtube.com/watch?v=tPADSv3XAv0
