Giving Boobies A Squeeze Can Help Reverse Breast Cancer, Literally!
Now guys, before you start drooling, this one’s actually for the ladies, although if you are with someone who suffers from breast cancer, I’m sure she’ll let you benefit too by helping give her this ‘medicine’!
According to researchers, placing mechanical force on malignant mammary cells can actually reverse their irregular growth process and put them back on track for a normal growth pattern.
Man, why do medical people have to talk like robots? ‘Placing mechanical force’ is what they said, but being a guy all’s I heard was ‘get to second base!’. Ladies you’re supposed to inspect yourself on a regular basis anyway to check for lumps but now they’re saying that doing so and more aggressively like a massage can help reverse the effects even after you’ve been diagnosed.
“Compression, in and of itself, is not likely to be a therapy,” Fletcher said. “But, this does give us new clues to track down the molecules and structures that could eventually be targeted for therapies.”
Once again with the big words, but we get the gist. The results aren’t set in stone yet, but the implications (I know, big word) are that we’re a little further down the road to being able to treat an ailment that affects so many women worldwide. Only this time us guys that aren’t scientists can actually have a hand (sorry, shameless pun) in treating our women or maybe even preventing the cancer from even showing up at all.
