Scientists may have found a herbal remedy for the treatment of liver cancer with no side effects, according to studies.
Liver cancer is a medical condition characterized by cell growth irregularly in the liver tissue.
The causes of liver cancer are associated with the alternation of cells DNA which normally begin in the cells on the surface of the inner lining.
Liver cancer at the early stage no not cause any symptoms. However, at the advanced stage, liver cancer cells can cause a wide range of symptoms including jaundice, abdominal swelling and pain, and dark urine and white stool accompanied by the general symptoms of cancers such as unintended weight loss, loss of appetite, chronic fatigue and tiredness and gastrointestinal discomforts.
If you experience some symptoms of the above, please make sure you check with your doctor to rule out the possibility of liver cancer.
The most common cause of liver cancer is infected by the hepatitis virus. However, in North America, due to overexpression of overweight and obese of the population, liver cancer may be slowly progressed from nonalcoholic fatty liver disease through cirrhosis to liver cancer.
There are numbers of risk factors other than those mentioned above associated with the onset of liver cancer such as male, ethnicity, hepatitis viral carriers.
However, most people with some of the above risk factors have never developed liver cancer.
Some researchers suggested that the widespread obesity may be one of the major risk factors involved the onset of the disease.
Dr. Aleksandrova K, the lead scientist in the article of obesity and liver cancer said, "Obesity and related metabolic disorders have become globally prevalent posing a challenge for the chronically damaged liver and predisposing the development and progression of cancer".
And, "Accumulating evidence has established an association between higher body mass index as an indicator of general obesity and a higher risk of primary liver cancer. The associations are stronger in men, in patients with underlying liver disease and in white ethnic groups. Abdominal obesity, weight gain in adult life and metabolic factors related to visceral fat accumulation were also suggested as important risk factors for liver cancer".
Bilberry is a species of low-growing shrubs in the genus Vaccinium, belonging to the family Ericaceae, native to Northern Europe.
Scientists on finding a natural ingredient for the treatment of liver cancer investigated the protective effect of bilberry extracts (BBE) and enzymatically modified isoquercitrin (EMIQ) on the hepatocarcinogenic process involving oxidative stress responses.
