Scientists may have found a sweet whole food which processes a strong effect in the prevention and treatment of breast cancer, according to some studies.
Breast cancer is a medical condition characterized by cell growth irregularly and disorderly in the breast tissue.
Most cases of breast cancer start in the cell on the surface of the inner lining of the breast tissue before spreading into deeper layers of the breast.
In the early stage, most patients with breast cancer may experience lumps on the breast or surrounding the breast.
However, breast skin irritation or dimpling, nipple pain, nipple retraction (turning inward), redness and scaliness that cannot be healed within 3 weeks are also the signs and symptoms of breast cancer.
At the later stage, after colonizing most parts of the breast, the breast cancer cells may travel a distance far the way to infect other healthy cells and tissue.
In Canada, according to the statistic, 11% of women will develop breast cancer by the time they reach 90 years of age.
Just about 20% of breast cancers in Canada are diagnosed in women under 50, while almost 30% are diagnosed in women over 70 years of age.
These result suggested that the most common risk factor to fuel the onset of breast cancer is the increase in age.
The concern of the increasing number of studies indicates that the strength and even direction the association between breast cancer and established risk factors differ according to the woman's age when she develops the disease, Dr. Tryggvadóttir L, the lead scientist. according to the result of the study of a cohort of 80.219 women attending population-based cervical and breast cancer screening in Iceland, 1120 cases were identified, aged 26-90 years at diagnosis and 10,537 controls, individually matched to the cases on birth year and age when attending wrote at the final report, "age at diagnosis should be taken into account when studying the effects of breast cancer risk factors".
Sadly to let you know that 60% of women who carry the genetic mutation of gene BRCA1 and 2 have breast cancer developed before the age of 70.
Other risk factors associated with the onset of breast cancer are reproductive history having a dense breast, personal and family history, previous intake of the drug diethylstilbestrol (DES), previous radiotherapy.
Regardless of all risk factors, women breast self-examinations are still the most important methods to have breast cancer diagnosed early and increase the years of survival.
According to the worldwide statistic, the 5 survival rate of the early stage of breast cancer is 100%.
Honey is the miraculous product made by bees using nectar from flowers.
The rich golden liquid is considered one of healthy sweet food for replacing the use of white sugar and artificial sweetener by many people.
In finding natural compounds in cancer therapy, researchers at the United Arab Emirates University conducted an experiment to test the underlying mechanism and molecular targets of manuka honey (MH) on proliferation, invasiveness, and angiogenic potential were investigated using two human breast cancer cell lines, the triple-negative MDA-MB-231 cells and estrogen receptor-positive MCF-7 cells, and the non-neoplastic breast epithelial MCF-10A cell line.
Infection of MH at concentrations of 0.3-1.25% (w/v) induced a dose-dependent inhibition of the proliferation of MDA-MB-231 and MCF-7, but not MCF-10A, cells.
At higher concentrations (>2.5%), MH was found to be generally deleterious to the growth of all three cell lines.
MH induced apoptosis of MDA-MB-231 cells through activation of proteins associated with the cell death programming and cancer cells apoptosis correlated with a loss of proteins associated with cancer cell proliferation.
Furthermore, low concentrations of MH (0.03-1.25% w/v) induced a rapid reduction in tyrosine-phosphorylated STAT3 (pY-STAT3) involved in cell growth and division in MDA-MB-231 and MCF-7 cells.
The maximum inhibition of pY-STAT3 was observed at 1 h with a loss of >80% and coincided with decreased interleukin-6 (IL-6) production.
These results suggested manuka honey (MH) inhibits breast cancer cell lines through many different mechanisms.
In a total of 50 nulliparous female Sprague-Dawley rats were grouped as follows: Group 0 (healthy normal rats control), Group 1 (negative control; untreated rats), Groups 2, 3 and 4 received daily doses of 0.2, 1.0 and 2.0 g/kg body weight of TH, respectively. The rats in groups 1, 2, 3, 4 were induced with 80 mg/kg of 1-methyl-1-nitrosourea (MNU) to examine the effects of Tualang honey (TH) against breast cancer.
The TH-treated rats showed a reduction of tumor progression (mean 75.3 days versus 51.5 days) compared to control.
The incidence (mean 76.6% versus 100%); the multiplicity (mean 2.5 versus 4 tumor masses per rat); the size of tumor mass (mean 0.41 cm versus 1.47 cm [p < 0.05]) and the weight of the tumor mass (mean 1.22 g versus 3.23 g; [p < 0.05]) also lower in the TH treated rats compared to control.
The grade of breast cancer is lower (I and II) compared to control (Grade III),
The efficacy of TH treatment in reducing the expression of breast cancer was attributed to the lower anti-apoptotic proteins (E2, ESR1, and Bcl-xL) expression and a higher pro-apoptotic proteins (Apaf-1 and Caspase-9) expression at serum and on the cancer tissue level.
The breast cancer size breast in the TH-treated groups was smaller mean tumor size (≤ 2 cm3) compared to Controls (≤ 8 cm3). The number of cancers developing in TH-treated groups was also significantly lower.
More importantly, an increasing trend of the apoptotic index (AI) was found in TH-treated groups with an increasing dosage of Tualang Honey compared to control.
Taken altogether, adding a portion of honey into women's diet may have a potential effect in reducing the risk of breast cancer.
And honey may be considered an adjunct therapy combined with the primary medicine for the treatment of breast cancer.
