Step 1 to cancer free: Limit stress that leads to high blood glucose and lipids

Adrenals and liver come to the rescue as blood sugar levels drop.  The endocrine pancreas, liver and adrenal glands work to normalize blood sugar and triglycerides.

Take care of your stress so it will be easier for you to prevent obesity, depression, sugar cravings and nerve pain which may start to happen at around 55 years of age. When we take care of our stress level, we take care of our metabolism , brain , whole body and we then prevent chronic diseases that lead to cancer.

Activities to make you happy

Beach stroll, dancing, watching comedians , laughing , sleeping at nigh, massage , happy and loving friends and relationships , spending time with family and friends , playing with your pets, gardening , singing , praying , deep breathing exercise, meditation

p53 , resveratrol , pancreatic cancer and apoptosis

Intrigued by pancreatic cancer, infection and environmental toxins, I stumble into this topic from Wiki. One of my clients died of stomach , esophagal and pancreatic cancer. Previous to that , he had shingles and other infections.  Her immune system became weaker during the last 5 years before his death.  He disregarded stomach pains and takes TUMs regularly and other anti-viral med for his shingles. His autopsy revealed stomach cancer.

————–

The p53 mechanism functions as a critical signaling pathway in cell growth, which regulates apoptosis, cell cycle arrest, metabolism and other processes 10. In pancreatic cancer, most cells have mutations in p53 protein, causing the loss of apoptotic activity.

The p53 upregulated modulator of apoptosis (PUMA) also known as Bcl-2-binding component 3 (BBC3), is a pro-apoptotic protein, member of the Bcl-2 protein family.[3][4] In humans, the Bcl-2-binding component 3 protein is encoded by the BBC3 gene.[3][4]

The expression of PUMA is regulated by the tumor suppressor p53. PUMA is involved in p53-dependent and -independent apoptosis induced by a variety of signals, and is regulated by transcription factors, not by post-translational modifications. After activation, PUMA interacts with antiapoptotic Bcl-2 family members, thus freeing Bax and/or Bak which are then able to signal apoptosis to the mitochondria. Following mitochondrial dysfunction, the caspase cascade is activated ultimately leading to cell death.[5]

Structure

The PUMA protein is part of the BH3-only subgroup of Bcl-2 family proteins. This group of proteins only share sequence similarity in the BH3 domain, which is required for interactions with Bcl-2-like proteins, such as Bcl-2and Bcl-xL.[3] Structural analysis has shown that PUMA directly binds to antiapoptotic Bcl-2 family proteins via an amphiphatic α-helical structure which is formed by the BH3 domain.[6] The mitochondrial localization of PUMA is dictated by a hydrophobic domain on its C-terminal portion.[7] No posttranslational modification of PUMA has been discovered yet.[5]

Mechanism of action

Biochemical studies have shown that PUMA interacts with antiapoptotic Bcl-2 family members such as Bcl-xLBcl-2Mcl-1Bcl-w, and A1, inhibiting their interaction with the proapoptotic molecules, Bax and Bak. When the inhibition of these is lifted, they result in the translocation of Bax and activation of mitochondrial dysfunctionresulting in release of mitochondrial apoptogenic proteins cytochrome cSMAC, and apoptosis-inducing factor(AIF) leading to caspase activation and cell death.[3]

Because PUMA has high affinity for binding to Bcl-2 family members, another hypothesis is that PUMA directly activates Bax and/or Bak and through Bax multimerization triggers mitochondrial translocation and with it induces apoptosis.[8][9] Various studies have shown though, that PUMA does not rely on direct interaction with Bax/Bak to induce apoptosis.[10][11]

Regulation

Induction

The majority of PUMA induced apoptosis occurs through activation of the tumor suppressor protein p53. p53 is activated by survival signals such as glucose deprivation[12] and increases expression levels of PUMA. This increase in PUMA levels induces apoptosis through mitochondrial dysfunction. p53, and with it PUMA, is activated due to DNA damage caused by a variety of genotoxic agents. Other agents that induce p53 dependent apoptosis are neurotoxins,[13][14] proteasome inhibitors,[15] microtubule poisons,[16] and transcription inhibitors.[17] PUMA apoptosis may also be induced independently of p53 activation by other stimuli, such as oncogenic stress[18][19] growth factor and/or cytokine withdrawal and kinase inhibition,[4][20][21] ER stress, altered redox status,[22][23] ischemia,[8][24] immunemodulation,[25][26] and infection.[5][27]

Degradation

PUMA levels are downregulated through the activation of caspase-3 and a protease inhibited by the serpase inhibitor N-tosyl-L-phenylalanine chloromethyl ketone, in response to signals such as the cytokine TGFβ, the death effector TRAIL or chemical drugs such as anisomycin.[28] PUMA protein is degraded in a proteasome dependent manner and its degradation is regulated by phosphorylation at a conserved serine residue at position 10.[29]

Role in cancer

Several studies have shown that PUMA function is affected or absent in cancer cells. Additionally, many human tumors contain p53 mutations,[30] which results in no induction of PUMA, even after DNA damage induced through irradiation or chemotherapy drugs.[31] Other cancers, which exhibit overexpression of antiapotptic Bcl-2family proteins, counteract and overpower PUMA-induced apoptosis.[32] Even though PUMA function is compromised in most cancer cells, it does not appear that genetic inactivation of PUMA is a direct target of cancer.[33][34][35] Many cancers do exhibit p53 gene mutations, making gene therapies that target this gene [clarification needed] impossible, but an alternate pathway may be to focus on therapeutic to target PUMA and induce apoptosis in cancer cells. Animal studies have shown that PUMA does play a role in tumor suppression, but lack of PUMA activity alone does not translate to spontaneous formation of malignancies.[36][37][38][39][40]Inhibiting PUMA induced apoptosis may be an interesting target for reducing the side effects of cancer treatments, such as chemotherapy, which induce apoptosis in rapidly dividing healthy cells in addition to rapidly dividing cancer cells.[5]

PUMA can also function as an indicator of p53 mutations. Many cancers exhibit mutations in the p53 gene, but this mutation can only be detected through extensive DNA sequencing. Studies have shown that cells with p53 mutations have significantly lower levels of PUMA, making it a good candidate for a protein marker of p53 mutations, providing a simpler method for testing for p53 mutations.[41]

Cancer therapeutics

Therapeutic agents targeting PUMA for cancer patients are emerging. PUMA inducers target cancer or tumor cells, while PUMA inhibitors can be targeted to normal, healthy cells to help alleviate the undesired side effects of chemo and radiation therapy.[5]

Cancer treatments

Research has shown that increased PUMA expression with or without chemotherapy or irradiation is highly toxic to cancer cells, specifically lung,[42] head and neck,[43]esophagus,[44] melanoma,[45] malignant glioma,[46] gastric glands,[47] breast[48] and prostate.[49] In addition, studies have shown that PUMA adenovirus seems to induce apoptosis more so than p53 adenovirus.[42][43][44] This is beneficial in combating cancers that inhibit p53 activation and therefore indirectly decrease PUMA expression levels.[5]

Resveratrol, a plant-derived stilbenoid, is currently under investigation as a cancer treatment. Resveratrol acts to inhibit and decrease expression of antiapoptotic Bcl-2family members while also increasing p53 expression. The combination of these two mechanisms leads to apoptosis via activation of PUMA, Noxa and other proapoptotic proteins, resulting in mitochondrial dysfunction

Know Your A1C: What This Blood Test Can Tell You About Your Risk for Diabetes and Cardiovascular Disease

Know Your A1C: What This Blood Test Can Tell You About Your Risk for Diabetes and Cardiovascular Disease

The higher the A1C level, the greater the risk of developing diabetes-related complications.

By Martin Tibuakuu, M.D., M.P.H. and Erin Michos, M.D., M.H.S. | Aug. 24, 2016, at 6:00 a.m.

Know Your A1C: What This Blood Test Can Tell You About Your Risk for Diabetes and Cardiovascular Disease

A simple blood test can diagnose diabetes, but it also can tell you so much more, including your risk for heart attack and stroke.

Type 2 Diabetes: Who Is at Risk?

Diabetes, which causes chronically high blood sugar levels, is the seventh leading cause of death in the United States, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. It can also result in serious health complications, including heart disease, blindness, kidney failure and lower-extremity amputations. The CDC reports that close to 29.1 million people are currently living with diabetes in America, meaning about 1 of every 11 people has it. There are different types of diabetes, but Type 2 diabetes accounts for about 90 to 95 percent of all diagnosed diabetes cases.

Risk factors for Type 2 diabetes include older age, obesity, a family history of diabetes, prior history of gestational (pregnancy) diabetes, impaired glucose tolerance, physical inactivity and race/ethnicity. African-Americans, Latinos, American Indians and some Asian-Americans and Pacific Islanders are at particularly high risk for Type 2 diabetes.

What Is Prediabetes?

People with prediabetes have glucose (i.e., blood sugar) levels that do not meet the criteria for diabetes but are too high to be considered normal. These individuals have an increased risk for the development of diabetes and other serious health problems, including heart disease and stroke. According to the CDC, 86 million American adults, or more than 1 of 3 people, have prediabetes. Without lifestyle changes, such as eating healthy foods, getting regular physical activity and maintaining a healthy weight, 15 to 30 percent of these individuals will develop Type 2 diabetes within five years.

What Is the A1C Blood Test?

The term A1C is short for HbA1c, or hemoglobin A1C. It refers to glycated hemoglobin, which develops when hemoglobin – a protein within red blood cells that carries oxygen – becomes coated with glucose or sugar in the blood. The amount of glucose that combines with this protein is directly proportional to the total amount of sugar in a person’s system, and so the higher blood glucose levels are, the higher the A1C level. Red blood cells have a life span of 120 days; by measuring A1C, clinicians are able to determine average blood sugar levels over approximately two to three months. A1C is particularly important in people with diabetes because the higher the A1C level, the greater the risk of developing diabetes-related complications. After a diabetes diagnosis, A1C is also used for gauging how well treatment controls blood sugar levels. In the U.S., A1C results are given as a percentage of hemoglobin that is glycated.

How Does an A1C Test Differ From a Blood Glucose Level?

An A1C measurement is a marker of average blood sugar levels over a period of two to three months, so it is a more stable test assessing longer-term blood sugar control. This means less day-to-day fluctuations to A1C levels due to stress and illness. A1C is often tested using blood samples from the arm, but samples can also be taken from a finger prick. Fasting is not required before A1C testing like it is for the blood glucose test.

On the other hand, the blood glucose level gives us the concentration of glucose in the blood only at the time of the test.

Health care providers measure both A1C and blood glucose to ensure good diabetes control, which informs them of the long-term and day-to-day control of blood sugar levels.

How Do We Diagnose Diabetes and Prediabetes?

Both diabetes and prediabetes may be diagnosed based on either A1C or blood glucose criteria. Blood glucose criteria could either be a blood glucose level measured after an overnight fast or a two-hour blood glucose value after eating 75 grams of sugar.

An international committee of experts from the American Diabetes Association, the European Association for the Study of Diabetes and the International Diabetes Federation recommends that the A1C test be the primary test used to diagnose prediabetes and Type 2 diabetes.

What Are the A1C Criteria for Diabetes and Prediabetes Diagnosis?

A1C can indicate if people have prediabetes or diabetes based on the following:

A1C Percentage
Normal Below 5.7%
Prediabetes 5.7%–6.4%
Diabetes 6.5% or greater

An A1C level of 6.5 percent or more measured on two separate occasions indicates you have diabetes.

If your A1C test returns a reading of 5.7 to 6.4 percent, this indicates you have prediabetes and are at an increased risk of Type 2 diabetes. At this point, you need to talk to your doctor about appropriate lifestyle changes that could reduce your risk of developing full-blown Type 2 diabetes in the future.

It is important to note that normal ranges for A1C levels may vary from one lab to another, so patients who may wish to interpret their own A1C results need to keep this in mind, especially when using a lab that is different from the one used for previous testing.

What Is the Target A1C Level?

For most people with previous diagnoses of diabetes, a target A1C level of 7 percent or less is a common treatment target. However, this is a general target, and health care teams do tailor targets to meet individual goals. A1C values are not indicators of specific diabetes complications, meaning any complications could arise with any A1C value. However, the closer someone’s value is to the normal A1C range, the better. A person’s recommended A1C target should take into account his or her ability to achieve the target without any risk of serious health complications caused by blood sugar levels that are too low (called hypoglycemia).

What Are the Benefits of Lowering A1C?

Studies have shown that reducing A1C by 1 percent in people with diabetes reduces the risk of serious health complications involving small vessels of the eyes and kidneys, as well as nerves by almost 25 percent.

Also, a study published in the journal BMJ revealed that people with Type 2 diabetes who reduce their A1C level by 1 percent are:

  • 19 percent less likely to suffer cataracts
  • 16 percent less likely to suffer heart failure
  • 43 percent less likely to suffer amputation or death due to blood vessel diseases

A lower A1C level in the blood means a lower amount of sugar in the blood on average, which reduces the risk of developing complications caused by high blood sugar levels.

Who Should Get an A1C Test?

  • Everyone with Type 2 diabetes should be offered an A1C test at least once a year.
  • Some may require an A1C test more often. This is especially true for patients who had a recent change in medication(s) or if a health care team wishes to more frequently monitor a patient’s diabetes status to get it under control.
  • For those without diabetes, experts recommend that anyone 45 or older should consider getting tested for A1C, especially if they are overweight. If they are younger than 45 but are overweight and have one or more additional risk factors for diabetes, they should consider getting tested.

What Are the Limitations to A1C Testing for Diabetes?

While A1C tests are usually reliable and widely used, it’s important to acknowledge that the test may not be accurate in people who:

• Have insufficient hemoglobin due excessive bleeding (may have a falsely low A1C reading).

• Have iron-deficiency anemia (may have a falsely high A1C test).

• Have hemoglobin genetic variations or uncommon forms of hemoglobin, commonly found in African-Americans and people of Mediterranean or Southeast Asian heritage.

• Have had a recent blood transfusion or have other forms of hemolytic anemia (may have falsely low A1C results)

• Are pregnant.

What Can You Do to Protect Yourself From Diabetes?

Anyone can benefit from a reduction of long-term diabetes complications, such as heart attack, stroke, kidney failure and diabetic nerve pain, by controlling their A1C levels through adopting healthy lifestyle practices. The benefit of reducing A1C should not be underestimated. To reduce A1C levels, you can:

Eat healthy. By keeping your post-meal blood glucose low, A1C can gradually be reduced in patients with diabetes and prediabetes. Those with diabetes and prediabetes need to eat foods that are high in nutrition and avoid excess calories. A healthy diet is rich in fruits, vegetables, fiber, lean protein and “good” monounsaturated and polyunsaturated fats in moderation. Saturated fats, refined “simple” carbohydrates and processed foods should be limited. For instance, switching white bread and white rice for whole-grain and brown rice will help reduce blood glucose spikes after a meal. Understanding what to eat and what to avoid can be challenging. Talk to a registered dietitian if you need help with food choices and meal planning. Tracking daily food intake using a diet diary or calorie-counter app can help keep things in check.

Be physically active. By keeping physically active, blood glucose is moved from the blood into cells to produce energy for the body, which lowers blood glucose levels. Also, physical activity improves our body’s sensitivity to insulin, a hormone needed to transport glucose into cells. This means that less insulin is needed to transport large amounts of glucose. Everyone should incorporate physical activity into their daily routine. For those without diabetes, being physically active will help to prevent the onset of prediabetes and Type 2 diabetes. For those with diabetes, it will help them maintain good blood sugar levels. The American Diabetes Association recommends aiming for 30 minutes of moderate- to vigorous-intensity aerobic exercise at least five days a week, or a total of 150 minutes per week. Moderate intensity means that you are working hard enough that you can talk but not sing during the activity, while vigorous intensity means you can’t say more than a few words without pausing for a breath during the activity.

Maintain a healthy weight. Losing weight through diet and exercise if you are overweight will significantly improve blood sugar levels, meaning a good A1C measurement.

Monitor your numbers. Carefully monitor both blood sugar and A1C levels if you have diabetes. Your medical team will most likely recommend regular A1C testing to monitor your overall diabetes control over a period of two to three months. However, A1C should never replace blood sugar level monitoring. For instance, people on insulin and other medications that cause hypoglycemia need regular blood glucose monitoring to ensure blood glucose doesn’t get too low.

Examining the early lives of two men who died of lung cancer

About 55% of our lifespan is affected by environment and our behavior. Two men I know died of lung cancer, one is my father and another my client – providing non medical in home care.

My father

At age 21, he started to smoke and by the time he reached the age of 40, he has tuberculosis (bacterial). He worked day and night as driver, mechanic. And worked in copper and nickel mines as security guard and mechanic. He also worked in places with asbestos and other metal dusts/toxins. 15 years before he died, he already stopped smoking. 5 to 10 years before he died, he experienced back pain.  During the last 5 years of his life, he has chronic cough at night. And at the time of his diagnosis, a blood vessel erupted in one of his eyes. Lung cancer was identified via an MRI and CAT scan. He lived his last 9 months with no meds, only 2 oxygen tanks, juice of green papaya and apples, massage and prayers. He died at 64 yrs of age at home in the Philippines, a year before that he spent 9 months in the USA.

My client

He died at 77 yrs of age, a tall and successful American who had lived in New York, Colorado and California. He started taking Acyclovir for shingles (viral) at young age and TUMS for indigestion. At one time, he was exposed to gold dust.  He loved sweet desserts. He loved challenges and worked hard and brushes off any pains he can feel. He loved art and his family, helping them succeed.

He was diagnosed with adenocarcinoma, a hormonal cancer that spreads in many organs. During the last week of his life, MRI scans revealed growing nodes of small strokes (a dozen) and a rapidly progressing lung cancer. He had surgery for small intestine cancer and other surgeries including 2 lung cancer and stroke.


Connie’s notes: Avoid metal toxins. Virus and Bacteria invades our cells and our immune system must always be strong which can be weakened by stress, lack of sleep, unhealthy living, absence of whole foods and other unknowns.
