Giving breasts a squeeze could hinder cancer growth

Giving breasts a squeeze could hinder cancer growth

Best news ever for us men.  I mean it, this is my favourite study of the year.  More research into this important area please… 

Great study released saying that massaging breast helps break up cancer formations.

The Fox News article says “According to researchers from the University of California at Berkeley and the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory, 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” said Daniel Fletcher, professor of bioengineering at Berkeley and faculty scientist at the Berkeley Lab, as well as the study’s lead investigator.

Ultimately the surrounding healthy cells could persuade the cancerous cells to grow normally again.

The school noted that the genetic mutations behind the malignancy remain, setting up a nature-versus-nurture battle in determining a cell’s fate.

The research findings were presented at the annual meeting of the American Society for Cell Biology in San Francisco Monday.
