Despite this finding, the overall benefits of selenium in this study still appeared to outweigh the risks by a significant amount. As pointed out in an earlier report (Journal of the American Medical Association 1996;276:1957–63), the total number of cancer deaths was 50% lower in the selenium group than in the placebo group. In addition, the total number of cancers (excluding skin cancers) was reduced by 37%; the incidence of lung cancer was reduced by 46%, colorectal cancer by 58%, and prostate cancer by 63%. www.now-university.com
As far as cancer treatments go, Bernie Schmidt has seen it all. He's had soft-tissue sarcoma cancer, colorectal cancer, skin cancer and "you won't believe it," he added-breast cancer. www.topix.com
(Best Syndication News) - Spanish researchers found that compounds in grapes can help protect the skin from the sun’s ultraviolet rays. Polyphenolic substances that come from the flavonoids found in grapes can reduce the UVA and UVB rays ability to cause damaging 'reactive oxygen species' (ROS) from developing. The study was published in the Journal of Agricultural and Food Chemistry.
Marta Cascante, a biochemist at the University of Barcelona (Spain) and director of the research project, said that the grape extracted compounds activated the JNK and p38 enzymes, which offered the sun protection.
Ultraviolet rays are shown to contribute to skin cancer, sunburn, and premature aging. Polyphenolic extracts could be used to make new UV sunscreen protection skin products.
