Response to a pro-melatonin article vis a vis cancer …

“Melatonin’s role as an oncostatic and cytotoxic agent is well established”…

The truth is, is that is not true at all…

Melatonin has NOT been established in any way shape or form…These correlative studies are saying that people who work the night shift get more breast cancer, AND then they are correlating THAT to melatonin…

The fact is that a million different things could be affecting nurses & stewardesses in terms of their heightened risk of breast cancer…Maybe more stewardesses take birth control drugs, engage in promiscuous sexual patterns, are exposed to more environmental toxins…

The studies coming out of Israel are interestingly placed, since the Israelis have come out with a new heavy dose melatonin drug Circadin I think it is called-so there are reasons to link melatonin this way…

Tryptophan is a Phosphorus type drug-Phosphorus is a cancer marker…Increase melatonin, you can increase Tryptophan…

Melatonin is opposite in chemistry to fluorine-for those who don’t know fluorouracil is used for breast, colon, lung & other cancers…

So why would something opposite to fluorine ALSO be anticancer?

I would be very very careful with melatonin…

When I took melatonin, & tracked progress in pictures, & palpation, the lump grew gritty & textured & uneven…A doctor told me that the lump should be smooth & even & regular-which is what it went back to when I quit the melatonin…

I do not doubt that it works as an adjunct therapy with tamoxifen or other harsh drugs- as a protectant…

But if anyone can read science mumbo jumbo, there are no solid clinical trials here yet…The truth is that people in cold , dark countries get cancer more than people in hot bright countries…believe me, I know-I live in Canada…Cold & dark…The fact that we sleep all winter does not protect us from cancer…

Quite the opposite…Be very very careful…

(Biography chatter:from my Author Central page on Amazon-Grove Health Science is a series of 12 books now!) Hi...I'm Sari Grove...Sari sounds like Mary...Grove is the last name I took from my husband, 'cause it is a really nice name, & he was very very good looking, & I married him, & my maiden name, the name I grew up with, was "Slatt", which could be turned into all sorts of unfortunate words, which is why when I was looking for a mate, I sought someone with a cool last name...(I cannot tell you how many totally worthy men I had to ignore due to their last names being unmelodic or otherwise unsuitable...) Grove Canada is a pen name, mostly because when I needed a web address, I could not get Grove.com or even grove.ca, so I just got GroveCanada, due to a serious lack of imagination in that moment...It stuck, so I still use it...I thought this time, if I used Grove Canada as a pen name, that maybe you might look up my blog online, at GroveCanada.ca, & enjoy the freshness of getting information from the horse's mouth, up to the minute, rather than the instant obsoleteness that a book creates...Like a car depreciates as soon as you buy it-a book is old as soon as it is published...For a Virgo perfectionist, this inability to easily update, with a new chapter, with new research, causes me constant worrisome self-abnegating, consternation... I use those dot dot dot things, the etcetera symbol, at the end of my sentences, as a habit-you will always know it is me writing, you will always pause at the end of a sentence to think for a moment, you will remember that poetry is beautiful, & you will take everything I say with a giant grain of Pink Himalayan salt(since the grammatical error will irk you into that state of skepticism)! Love & Hugs, Sari ps. I became a Christian at the age of 21, which may seem like a non sequitur, & though my faith is decent my works may not really do justice to that title-but I thought I'd mention it, since my first name Sari always seems to force an assumption about my background-and though you would be right to assume that it tends to be a Jewish name, you might not be right in assuming that that is what I am going to sound like when I expound on some of my karmic principles or other ethical compasses I have developed...Not that I have done away with my past, it is just I have iced the cake with the new updated version-so if you wrong me, I may just turn the other cheek(New), instead of doing the eye for an eye thing back at you!(old)...
