Cancer Blog: Fat, histamines and cancer spread

Cancer Blog: Fat, histamines and cancer spread
As regular readers will know, I’m looking at ways to stop or slow metastases. People don’t
die from cancer; they die from metastases.
 
One of my interests is how saturated fat helps cancer spread. I have long noted that where
prostate cancer patients send me their blood results (PSA, Oestradiol, oestrone,
Testosterone, DHT, triglyceride and cholesterol levels), as soon as the triglyceride and
cholesterol levels climb, the DHT is not far behind and the cancer is coming back with a
vengeance.
 
Some clues were afforded to why about 12 years ago.
 
First research at Johns Hopkins showed and others that cancer cells had much higher levels
of histamine receptor sites on them, than healthy cells. They pick up histamines, and this
inflames them, making them ‘sticky’, so they can stick yto each other and form new
tumours, or stick to your liver or lungs, after their stickiness has helped their transport
through blood and lypmph.
 
The issue is, “How does the immune system not see them when they are on their travels?”.
The answer came from research. First, researchers in Barcelona at the Institue for
Biomedicine showed that only 10% of cancer cells actually can spread. What these have in
common is a CD36 molecule on their surface. And this attracts bad fats in the blood stream.
The sticky cancer cells then take on a fatty cloak all around and they can then more freely
around the body.
 
Not surprisingly, there was then a big American study which showed people with higher
levels of blood fat have more metastases and lowered survival times.
 
The obvious answer.
 
First check your blood fats and never let your cholesterol and triglycerides get above
normal’, not even up towards ‘safe’ limits!
 
Then, consider taking an antihistamine like Desloratadine or Loratadine. No estrogen
conflicts, they reduce the stickiness of cancer cells. They will have more difficulty spreading,
and less ability to take hold in your peripheral organs.
 
Cheap OTC medicines with few side-effects, you take them for 10 weeks and up to a year.
There’s research.
 
It’s not rocket science.
 
I wrote my first article on the benefits of antihistamines to cancer patients in 2006. If you
followed CANCERactive then, you could well have benefitted from these observations, that
research has now proven correct.
