Melatonin, environmental light, and breast cancer.
Although many factors have been suggested as causes for breast cancer, the increased incidence of the disease seen in women working in night shifts led to the hypothesis that the suppression of melatonin by light or melatonin deficiency plays a major role in cancer development. Studies on the 7,12-dimethylbenz[a]anthracene and N-methyl-N-nitrosourea experimental models of human breast cancer indicate that melatonin is effective in reducing cancer development. In vitro studies in MCF-7 human breast cancer cell line have shown that melatonin exerts its anticarcinogenic actions through a variety of mechanisms, and that it is most effective in estrogen receptor (ER) alpha-positive breast cancer cells. Melatonin suppresses ER gene, modulates several estrogen dependent regulatory proteins and pro-oncogenes, inhibits cell proliferation, and impairs the metastatic capacity of MCF-7 human breast cancer cells. The anticarcinogenic action on MCF-7 cells has been demonstrated at the physiological concentrations of melatonin attained at night, suggesting thereby that melatonin acts like an endogenous antiestrogen. Melatonin also decreases the formation of estrogens from androgens via aromatase inhibition. Circulating melatonin levels are abnormally low in ER-positive breast cancer patients thereby supporting the melatonin hypothesis for breast cancer in shift working women. It has been postulated that enhanced endogenous melatonin secretion is responsible for the beneficial effects of meditation as a form of psychosocial intervention that helps breast cancer patients.

According to the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), over 45 million people in the United States are currently smokers. While this is 19.3% of all adults, with the exception of Asians, smoking rates tend to be higher for African-Americans and Hispanics. Every day more than 3,800 people under the age of 18 smoke their first cigarette. About a quarter of them begin smoking regularly. In my experience working with people who are trying to stop their smoking habits, all of them started before the age of 18. While some of them remember being forced to start smoking, the typical...
Reading comprehension involves a person’s ability to rapidly translate perceptions in to the how and why of meaning. It also refers to their ability to recall information when needed. Hypnosis can help a person significantly improve in both areas.
One of the main obstacles to comprehension – and reading speed as well – is a person’s stress level. In order to comprehend fully, the associated areas of the brain must be activated. However, during a high stress period, this is difficult as problem solving and survival-related areas of the brain are rightfully considered more important. By...
One of the most natural human instincts is to seek an ideal mate. There are many factors that come into consideration. Many of them involve instinctual biological urges and an innate desire to find someone who meets very distinct criteria regarding height, shape, and symmetry – factors that we often call beauty. Generally, a man is looking for a woman who is able to bear children. And, a woman is normally more attracted to someone who can provide safety and security. Often this means that a woman is seeking a man who displays physical prowess. However, I’ve noticed how intellect and financial...
