The Salobreña branch of the AECC, with the collaboration of the Town Hall, dedicated Wednesday to showing their support for those who suffer from cancer.
Although this article mainly concerns Lanjarón, evidence of this prickly-pear disease is all over Andalucia: shrivelled cacti pads, covered in a white substance.
Are you suffering pain, stress or recovering from an injury? Massage is the best way to recover or revive, as long as it is performed by an expert.
The talk on the destructive palm-tree weevil or beetle was not all conducted within a room in Almuñécar, but also took to the streets for practical demonstrations.
Medicine has advanced since and quietly keeps advancing. And maybe, we will witness the moment when not the nanny but the nano makes us help the medicine go down.
An exciting technology is emerging, offering possibilities as diverse as radiation does and medicine has discovered it, too. Nanotechnology works in dimensions which are hardly imaginable for us – matter no bigger than the size of 400 hydrogen atoms (the smallest atom).
Food is a potent inducer of metabolic responses (and pleasure ). Specific nutrients enhance muscle action, while others boost appetite or modulate inflammatory responses. On the other hand, caloric restriction under normal conditions ( 20 to 40 % fewer calories than required ) has been shown to protect against the development of chronic diseases. ( To highlight this : there was hardly any diabetes or gout in post-war Germany ) Exploiting the differential effects of food or its absence during disease may be one strategy to enhance the efficacy of drug therapies.

Maybe some can remember (can I ?) the bird and swine-flu hype which made governments spend trillions on supposedly anti-viral medicines, which firstly were never needed, which secondly would have never worked because of a lack of efficacy and which thirdly had to be destroyed at more great expense after the date of expiry. The media were happily fueling this hype and created by this a public pressure on governments with the above mentioned consequences – anxiety sells and I think that after shedding some light on dark banking practices the print and visual media do certainly merit the same treat – anxiety sells. Any room for ethics here ?
Last month two meta-analyses were published about health strategies on how to reduce the chances of developing bowel cancer. A meta-analysis is not a new piece of research, but it looks at all the published research on a subject, thus unifying conflicting results and drawing a conclusion out of the whole body of existing evidence.
Have you got any health concerns that you know should really be checked out, but you’re either concerned about the language barrier or maybe just too embarrassed to go along to the doctors?
