The Broad-Spectrum Approach to Cancer Prevention and Therapy: A Complementary, Integrative Clinical Model to Reduce Disease Resistance and Relapse
Global task force tackles linkages between mixtures of commonly encountered chemicals and cancer
From the thousands of chemicals to which the population is now routinely exposed, the scientists selected 85 prototypic chemicals that were not considered to be carcinogenic to humans and they reviewed their effects against a long list of mechanisms that are important for cancer development. Working in teams that focused on various hallmarks of cancer, the group found that 50 of those chemicals support key cancer-related mechanisms at environmentally-relevant levels of exposure. This supports the idea that chemicals may be capable of acting in concert with one another to cause cancer, even though low level exposures to these chemicals individually might not be carcinogenic.
Global task force tackles problem of untreatable cancers and disease relapse
Combinations of a significant number of non-toxic substances, many of which can be found in plants and foods, may give us a chance to prevent high risk cancers, stop untreatable cancers and prevent disease relapse

CTV News (Video): Common chemicals, when combined, may trigger cancer, study
Chemicals commonly found in our environment that are not considered carcinogenic to humans on their own may trigger cancer when combined in the body, according to new research. Scientists from 28 different countries published their findings Tuesday, on the links between common chemicals and cancer risk. The researchers studied 85 different chemicals that are not considered carcinogenic on their own. They found that, when combined, 50 of the chemicals supported key cancer-related mechanisms at exposure levels currently found in the environment.
NIEHS Symposium on the Halifax Project (Tuesday August 25th, 2015)
