After completing this study, and factoring in the above, of all the plant based proteins I have tried, I would personally choose Nutiva’s Plant Protein Superfood 30 Shake in either vanilla or chocolate as my top choice. For me it is obvious since Nutiva is actually certified organic, is at a great affordable price, low in sugars (and not stevia) and has a great taste.
Serving suggestion: Add 2 tablespoons of Hempseeds to your shake for an extra 8g of Protein and 1.7g Omega-3.Consider the addition of 1 tablespoon of Nutiva Coconut Manna (ie coconut butter) and water to eliminate the need for buying cartons of almond or coconut milk. — This feed and its contents are the property of The Huffington Post, and use is subject to our terms.

Microwave ablation is an effective and safe treatment technique for painful spinal metastases. Further studies may be helpful in determining the role of microwave ablation in locoregional control of metastases.
If you have mesothelioma and you’ve already received standard-of-care therapies, you may be considering an immunotherapy clinical trial.
If you’re considering this option, a free immunotherapy teleconference is a great place to learn more.
CancerCare recently hosted two one-hour education workshops featuring panels of immunotherapy experts. Part I of the teleconference presented an overview of immunotherapy.
Part II of the teleconference, which is available online for free, focused exclusively on immunotherapy side effects.
Understanding these issues and the role each patient plays in managing their own side ef…
Followers of the Undoctored and Wheat Belly books and lifestyle understand a basic truth in logic: Just because something is less bad does not necessarily make it good.
Low-tar cigarettes have less of the toxic compounds that leave the brown residue–“tar”–after tobacco is burned, but smoking low-tar cigarettes does not reduce risk for lung cancer, mouth/throat cancer, or cardiovascular disease.
From Stanford.edu on the impact of tobacco advertising:
Claims of low ‘tar,’ less ‘tar,’ or even lowest ‘tar’ have been circulating in cigarette advert…

The NCCN Guidelines for Head and Neck (H&N) Cancers provide treatment recommendations for cancers of the lip, oral cavity, pharynx, larynx, ethmoid and maxillary sinuses, and salivary glands. Recommendations are also provided for o…
Seminars in Plastic Surgery 2018; 32: 084-089 DOI: 10.1055/s-0038-1642640The cheek is the largest facial unit with a prominent position on the face. Trauma, burns, and the resection of skin cancers constitute common sources of injury, potentially resulting in defects that, through natural healing, produce noticeable scarring. Surgical repair focuses on the reformation of three-dimensional geometries, proper establishment of symmetry, and the minimization of color and texture discrepancies to the surrounding. Defects located in this region may extend to the orbital, nasal, or buccal units and cause unique structural and fun…
Cigarette smoke is a complex mixture of chemicals, including several tobacco-specific nitrosamines (TSNA). Most TSNA are formed in tobacco during the post-harvest period, while a number are produced when a cigarette is burned. Considerable evidence supports the role of TSNA important causative factors for cancers of the lung, pancreas, esophagus, and oral cavity in people who use tobacco products. Of the known TSNA, nicotine-derived nitrosamine ketone (NNK) and N-nitrosonornicotine (NNN) are the most carcinogenic. Other TSNA include N’-nitrosoanatabine (NAT) and N-nitrosoanabasine (NAB). New tobacco produ…
The objective here is a set of tests that (a) match up to the expected outcome based on human trials of mitochondrially targeted antioxidants, and (b) that anyone can run without the need to involve a physician, as that always adds significant time and expense. These tests are focused on the cardiovascular system, particularly measures influenced by vascular stiffness, and some consideration given to parameters relevant to oxidative stress and the development of atherosclerosis.

This study investigated whether inhibition of the Janus kinase 2 (JAK2)-signal transducer and activator of transcription 3 (STAT3) pathway by momelotinib is sufficient in suppressing tumor burden and prolonging the disease-free survival period in a mouse model of ovarian cancer. We demonstrate that paclitaxel treatment enhanced JAK2/STAT3 activation which resulted in the enrichment of cancer stem cell (CSC)-like phenotype in the surviving ovarian cancer cells in vitro and in in vivo mouse xenografts. Combined treatment with paclitaxel and momelotinib inhibited paclitaxel-induced JAK2/STAT3 activation and CSC-like developme…
I came across this public-accesss story, and wanted to share the perspective:

Even as opioids flood American communities and fuel widespread addiction, hospitals are facing a dangerous shortage of the powerful painkillers needed by patients in acute pain, according to doctors, pharmacists and a coalition of health groups.
The shortage, though more significant in some places than others, has left many hospitals and surgical centers scrambling to find enough injectable morphine, Dilaudid and fentanyl — drugs given to patients undergoing surgery, fighting cancer or suffering traumat…
During the treatment for head and neck cancer patients often require a percutaneous endoscopic gastrostomy (PEG) to maintain adequate nutritional intake.1 Complications associated with a PEG include leakage,2 widening of the stoma, and dislodgement of the tube.3 These complications may in turn result in the need for placement of a new tube.
