LONDON -- A single protein may hold the key to turning the tide on lung cancer -- still the world's biggest cancer killer -- research published on Tuesday showed. Researchers at Vanderbilt University in Nashville found that type 2 receptors for Transforming Growth Factor-b -- a family of proteins that controls key functions such as cell growth and death -- were missing in non-small cell lung cancer victims. A check on mice injected with lung cancer cells confirmed the findings, with much...

Baltimore, Md. -- In the high-tech 21st century, the most rudimentary natural products continue to reveal exciting ant-cancer properties to scientists, offering people relatively simple ways to help protect themselves from the disease. Five studies presented today during the American Association for Cancer Research's 4th annual Frontiers in Cancer Prevention Research meeting in Baltimore, Md., add to the arsenal of research that shows adding certain vegetables and herbs to the diet can...

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Pomegranate juice, a deep red juice becoming popular as a health drink, works against prostate cancer cells in lab dishes and in mice, U.S. researchers reported on Tuesday. Prostate tumors shrank in mice infected with human prostate tumors who drank pomegranate juice, the researchers report in this week's issue of the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences. The juice is rich in antioxidants -- chemicals that give fruits and vegetables their deep colors and...

CHICAGO (Reuters) - A diet rich in fruits and vegetables appears to provide protection against lung cancer, according to research published on Tuesday. The agents believed responsible are plant-derived compounds known as phytoestrogens found in soy products, grains, carrots, spinach, broccoli and other fruits and vegetables, the report from the University of Texas M.D. Anderson Cancer Center in Houston said. The compounds have been shown to have a protective effect against some...

By Susan Heavey WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Eating more raw vegetables every day, especially yellow and dark green ones, may help cut the risk of pancreatic cancer in half, according to a study released on Thursday. Researchers at the University of California in San Francisco found eating five or more servings of yams, corn, carrots, onions or other similar vegetables is linked with lower risk of the disease -- one of the most deadly and hard-to-treat cancers. Dark green leafy...

By Alison McCook NEW YORK (Reuters Health) - Eating broccoli may help prevent or slow the spread of bladder cancer, according to preliminary study findings. Working in the laboratory, U.S. researchers found that certain compounds in broccoli appear to interfere with bladder cancer cells -- especially aggressive cells that tend to spread quickly around the body. "Preliminary evidence suggests that these compounds may have some biological activity in slowing the growth of bladder cancer...

COLUMBUS , Ohio "“ Researchers have isolated compounds from the vegetable broccoli that they believe may help prevent or slow the progress of bladder cancer. The current work builds on a major study conducted six years ago by Harvard and Ohio State universities that found that men who ate two or more half-cup servings of broccoli per week had a 44 percent lower incidence of bladder cancer compared to men who ate less than one serving each week. "We're starting to look at which...

Sped development of tumors in mice exposed to UV light HealthDayNews -- Chronic stress may increase the risk of skin cancer in those at high risk for the disease, according to a study by researchers at Johns Hopkins Kimmel Cancer Center. The study found that mice exposed to stress and to cancer-causing ultraviolet (UV) light developed skin cancer in less than half the time as mice that weren't stressed. The research appears in the December issue of the Journal of the American Academy of...
