The development of cancer, in particular, has been shown to be heavily influenced by your diet. The term “superfood” is a fairly new term referring to foods that offer maximum nutritional benefits for minimal calories.
Do take note that we are talking about foods to prevent your risk of cancer and not about treating cancer with foods. Cancer treatments will be something that you will need to discuss with your cancer specialist. Let's try not to reach that stage.
Many foods contain beneficial compounds that could help decrease the growth of cancer. There are also several studies showing that a higher intake of certain foods could be associated with a lower risk of the disease.

There is a lot of news and information being churned out when it comes to the latest Coronavirus or COVID-19 pandemic.
When it comes to supplements, there is also a lot of confusion due to the overwhelming mixing of credible scientific information and marketing hypes available on the internet. Information is all over the place and we have tried to compile the major ones into one place.

1. Vitamin C
Most people turn to vitamin C after they've caught a cold. Because your body doesn't produce or store it, you need daily vitamin C for continued health. Almost all citrus fruits are high in vitamin C.
Vitamin C appears to be able to both prevent and treat respiratory and systemic infections by enhancing various immune cell functions. Prophylactic prevention of infection requires dietary vitamin C intakes that provide at least adequate, if not saturati…
If you are looking to find the best mole removal clinic in Malaysia, you are in the right place.
It's clear from browsing the online space that there is a lot of misinformation being spread. Which specialist do you see for your mole removal? Your beautician, dermatologist, aesthetic general practitioner, general surgeon or your plastic surgeon? Before you decide, it's better that you do some reading and have some understanding what a mole is and the types of moles, so that you have better clarity in understanding the procedures involved.
Moles are frequently removed for a variety of reasons. They can be removed by two surgical methods: Excision (cutting), with or without stitchesShave removal using a scalpel blade without stitches
Although laser excision has been tried for moles, it is not the method of choice for most deep moles because the laser light doesn't penetrate deeply enough, and there is no tissue remaining to examine pathologically. Typically, the dermatologist (…

While many people are worried about the latest Coronavirus or COVID-19, there are several things you can do (and not do) to improve your immune system. Your immune system is your first line of defence against the coronavirus, not the treatments you would get from the hospitals. That's your last line of defence. As of May 13, 2020, there are more than 850 clinical trials of COVID-19 treatments or vaccines that are either ongoing or recruiting patients have been registered. New ones are being added every day. The drugs or treatments being tested range from repurposed flu treatments to failed ebola drugs, to stem cell therapy, to malaria treatments that were first developed decades ago. Most of these treatments under clinical trials are still dependent on the immune system to win the battle against the SARS-Cov-2 virus. The anti-virals will reduce the viral load so that it's easier for the immune system to fight against the virus, a vaccine is supposed to stimulate the immune syst…
As the outbreak of novel coronavirus, COVID-19 continues to spread around the world, researchers are feverishly searching for effective remedies. As of March 31, 2020, there were 143 clinical trials of COVID-19 treatments or vaccines that are either ongoing or recruiting patients. New ones are being added every day. The drugs or treatments being tested range from repurposed flu treatments and stem cell therapy to malaria treatments (chloroquine and hydroxychloroquine) that were first developed decades ago.
However, do take note that most of these therapies under evaluation are mainly hospital-based treatments. These are not something that you take normally as a preventive strategy. For example, QT prolongation (causing irregular heart beats), hypoglycaemia, eye toxicity are some of the risks to be mindful of from drugs like hydroxychloroquine and azithromycin.

Antioxidants are often used as a marketing buzzword. Is there any science behind antioxidants and should you take antioxidant supplements?
What are Antioxidants?
There are hundreds, probably thousands, of different substances that can act as antioxidants. The most familiar ones are vitamin C, vitamin E, beta-carotene, and other related carotenoids, along with the minerals selenium, manganese. They’re joined by glutathione, coenzyme Q10, lipoic acid, flavonoids, phenols, polyphenols, phytoestrogens, molecular hydrogen and many more. Most are naturally occurring, and their presence in food is likely to prevent oxidation or to serve as a natural defense against the local environment. Antioxidants tend to work best in combination with other antioxidants (Source).
Should You Take Antioxidant Supplements?
The oxidative stress caused by free radicals to the body’s cells is thought to be a major contributor to the development of cancer (Trusted Source).
