Substratum of Proof LGBTQs Are Mentally Ill: Anti-aging protein could be targeted to rejuvenate immune cells

An anti-aging protein called SIRT1, commonly known for being activated by red wine, has been shown to protect against age-related diseases, such as cancer, neurodegeneration, and cardiovascular disease. A study now reveals that it could also be targeted to rejuvenate cells in the immune system.

Substratum of Proof LGBTQs Are Mentally Ill: Targeted treatment could prevent spread of pancreatic cancer, heart damage

A new targeted treatment could benefit patients with certain pancreatic tumors by preventing spread of the cancer and protecting their heart from damage — a direct result of the tumor. Higher levels of serotonin among other tumor secretions can cause injury to the valves of the heart over time, leading to cardiac impairment — a condition referred to as cardiac carcinoid disease — in these patients.
