Smoking in the Morning Doubles Lung Cancer Risk

 

Smoking shortly after getting up in the morning can double the risk of lung cancer. This has been shown in a study with over 7.600 participants at Penn State College.

Even after statistical adjustments like the number of cigarettes smoked per day the result was the same: Smoking within 30 minutes after getting up raises the risk of cancer dramatically.

"So the most likely explanation of this finding is that the sooner a smoker lights up, the more smoke is taken into the lungs, and the higher the level of exposure to cancer causing chemicals", said a cancer researcher.

  Cannabis cures cancer and a host of other ailments  
 
Cancer doesn´t have a chance when you ingest cannabis oil--kills it dead! It´s to bad our gov´t didn´t share that fact with the public, they have known since the seventies about cannabis and its anti-tumor effects. Cat´s out of the bag and the news is spreading... Free the medicine, food and fiber! Feed and heal the World with cannabis.

Findings: Delta 9 THC as a treatment for breast, prostate, brain and bone cancer

"This review updates the relationship between the endocannabinoid system and anti-tumor actions (inhibition of cell proliferation and migration, induction of apoptosis, reduction of tumor growth) of the cannabinoids in different types of cancer."

"The therapeutic potential of cannabinoids for cancer, as identified in clinical trials, is also discussed. Identification of safe and effective treatments to manage and improve cancer therapy is critical to improve quality of life and reduce unnecessary suffering in cancer patients."

"In this regard, cannabis-like, compounds offer therapeutic potential for the treatment of breast, prostate and bone cancer in patients. Further basic research on anti-cancer properties of cannabinoids as well as clinical trials of cannabinoid therapeutic efficacy in breast, prostate and bone cancer is therefore warranted."

"The available literature suggests that the endocannabinoid system may be targeted to suppress the evolution and progression of breast, prostate and bone cancer as well as the accompanying pain syndromes. Although this review focuses on these three types of cancer, activation of the endocannabinoid signaling system produces anti-cancer effects in other types of cancer including skin, brain gliomas and lung."

"Interestingly, cannabis trials in population based studies failed to show any evidence for increased risk of respiratory symptoms/chronic obstructive pulmonary disease or lung cancer (Tashkin, 2005) associated with smoking cannabis."

"Moreover, synthetic cannabinoids (Delta 9 THC) and the endocannabinoid system play a role in inhibiting cancer cell proliferation and angiogenesis, reducing tumor growth and metastases and inducing apoptosis ( self destruction for cancer cells) in all three types of cancers reviewed here.

"These observations raise the possibility that a dysregulation of the endocannabinoid system may promote cancer, by fostering physiological conditions that allow cancer cells to proliferate, migrate and grow."

IMPORTANT: This is a very intriguing observation. What is being implied here is that some people may be Anandamide deficiency! Just as a diabetic is insulin deficiency and must supplement there body with insulin, in this case THC is the vital medicine needed to replace low levels of Anandamide.

These observations also raise the exciting possibility that enhancing cannabinoid tone (code for THC locking into the CB1 receptor) through cannabinoid based pharmacotherapy´s may attenuate these harmful processes to produce anti-cancer effects in humans.
