Medical News Today
Researchers at Johns Hopkins have identified a gene that, when repressed in tumor cells, puts a halt to cell growth and a range of processes needed for tumors to enlarge and spread to distant sites. The researchers hope that this so-called "master regulator" gene may be the key to developing a new treatment for tumors resistant to current drugs.

By Archita Datta Majumdar
In ongoing global research for combating cancer, new theories constantly surface to fuel newer dimensions of treatment and therapy. Perhaps none has generated as much hope as the latest theory of using nanoparticles to create new-age cancer drugs.

People in the study who ate peppers two times per week were 30 percent less likely to develop Parkinson's disease than people who ate peppers less than once a week.
