American scientists from the University of Texas in Houston found that normalizing circadian rhythms can suppress the growth of especially dangerous cancer of the liver.
About this time, according to MedicalXpress.
Scientists have discovered how to deal with a particularly dangerous cancer types
Experiments have shown that increasing the activity of the gene BMAL1, which is involved in the formation of circadian rhythm, leads to the death of cancer cells in the body.
Scientists believe that proper circadian rhythm increases the lifespan of the organism and reduces the risk of cancer. Conversely, the violation of biorhythms, on the contrary, provokes the development of serious diseases.
The researchers found that half of the liver cells produces a protein, which leads to disruption of circadian rhythms.
Circadian rhythms – what is it?
This oscillation of the intensity of various biological processes associated with the change of day and night.
In particular, they contain the metabolism, sleep, Wake, reception and digestion of food, which depend on the mode of the day.
Normalization of circadian rhythms prevents cancer
The conclusion of experts: the normalization of the circadian rhythm prevents cancer.
By the way, British scientists at Birmingham University have tested the fluid, which stains cancer cells in the rose color and highlights them with a fluorescent light.
