Copper nanoparticles and immunotherapy rapidly eliminate cancer cells – Pilot Study

The combination of the nanoparticles and immunotherapy made the tumours disappear entirely and, as a result, works as a vaccine for lung and colon cancer – the two types that were investigated in the study. To confirm their finding, the researchers injected tumour cells back into the mice. These cells were immediately eliminated by the immune system, which was on the lookout for any new, similar, cells invading the body.

Low copper levels linked to fatter fat cells

In studies of mouse cells, researchers have found that low levels of cellular copper appear to make fat cells fatter by altering how cells process their main metabolic fuels, such as fat and sugar.

Beet Compound could have a key role in ‘Alzheimer’s disease

A compound in beets that gives the vegetable its distinctive red color ( Betanin ) could eventually help slow the accumulation of misfolded proteins in the brain through suppressing the oxidation of metals.
