Why don't people get heart cancer?

Why do you never tend to hear about cancer of the heart? Can people even get heart cancer? What makes the heart different to other organs? A heart doctor explains...

------------

A few people have asked me this question recently. Aaand it had been a while since I made a Minute Medicine video so figured this was a perfect opportunity. As usual this was shot during a quiet 5 minutes at work. Not always easy to find! But the on-call gods smiled at me yesterday.

The cancer gene we all have - Michael Windelspecht

View full lesson:

Within every cell in our body, two copies of a tumor suppressor gene called BRCA1 are tasked with regulating the speed at which cells divide. Michael Windelspecht explains how these genes can sometimes mutate, making those cells less specialized and more likely to develop into cancer.

Why Haven't We Cured Cancer Yet?

Cancer affects millions of lives each year. With technology expanding at such a rapid rate, and survival rates increasing, why haven't we found a cure for cancer yet? Treatments like chemotherapy may help, but are there any promising, more advanced treatments to look forward to? Let's explore what cancer is, and understand why it's so dangerous.

Why Don't Elephants Get Cancer?

A study led by the Huntsman Cancer Institute at the University of Utah could explain why elephants rarely get cancer.

CANCER HAS WON IT'S GAME OVER

CANCER HAS WON IT'S GAME OVER

It is with a sad and heavy heart that I say this, my recent surgery showed each site was cancerous with no margins. Stains showed mass deposits all over my left side and back, with deep deposits towards internal organs.

Time frame is irrelevant now, I do not want to tell anyone what is expected to happen now, until I am ready.

I should explain for people I was told to enjoy the next two weeks as after that they expect me to be to sick to enjoy life.

I am still going to have my samples tested in the hope we can save a life in the future, I will do everything in my power to make that a reality! We will all continue the research!

My family and I knew this day would come, but it has come faster than any one expected, my team are fighting for me to try everything possible, but my body is failing fast, I can feel it and we all know it.

No one should have to go through this mental and physical pain in this day and age. I will now be documenting the end of my life, my fight, my struggle in the hope that I can make people smile, laugh and spread some joy around the world.

In the less than 0.01% chance I manage to beat this, I will spend the rest of my life helping others in horrific situations, cancer is just one awful thing that affects people!

I will leave you with this, smile, laugh and see the beauty in everything everyday, make the most of being able to be you, but most of all never regret anything! Make every day count, because like me you may wake up unable to continue to do what you love.

My dreams are just that now, dreams, white clouds in the sky that I will never reach.

Much love and I'm sorry it's not better news.

Don't Give In! Don't Give Up!

Due to loads of interest you can now pre-order the #dontgiveindontgiveup hoodie and t-shirt now:

I have a Go Fund Me setup if you would like to support me get research done into this type of cancer (Pleomorphic Sarcomatoid Carcinoma and Primary Cutaneous CarcinoSarcoma) with the hope that we can eventually find the best treatment, as there are very limited / no options left now, I have already started passing on samples, medical files and reports to specialists worldwide. The next step is to get my DNA Sequenced, so as specialist medical researchers can see if we can find the needle in the haystack to treat this.

Not everyone can get the same type of treatment, not everyone is able to have chemo, radiotherapy, immunotherapy and the likes. I am one of those with a rare form of cancer that can't be treated by conventional means.

There is litterally no research into this type so it's important to me, to document everything and record it all, so that if something can be done and someone spots it, we have that added bonus!

What Happens To Your Body And Brain If You Don't Get Sleep | The Human Body

Sleep expert Matthew Walker breaks down the many effects of sleep deprivation on your brain and body.

Following is the transcript of the video:

Matthew Walker: My name is Matthew Walker, I am a professor of neuroscience and psychology at the University of California, Berkeley, and I am the author of the book Why We Sleep.

We certainly know that a lack of sleep will actually prevent your brain from being able to initially make new memories, so it's almost as though without sleep the memory inbox of the brain shuts down and you can't commit new experiences to memory. So those new incoming informational emails are just bounced, and you end up feeling as though you're amnesiac. You can't essentially make and create those new memories.

We also know that a lack of sleep will lead to an increased development of a toxic protein in the brain that is called beta amyloid and that is associated with Alzheimer's disease because it is during deep sleep at night when a sewage system within the brain actually kicks in to high gear and it starts to wash away this toxic protein, beta amyloid. So if you're not getting enough sleep each and every night, more of that Alzheimer's-related protein will build up. The more protein that builds up, the greater your risk of going on to develop dementia in later life.

What are the effects of sleep deprivation on the body? Well, there are many different effects. Firstly, we know that sleep deprivation affects the reproductive system. We know that men who are sleeping just five to six hours a night have a level of testosterone which is that of someone ten years their senior. So a lack of sleep will age you by almost a decade in terms of that aspect of virility and wellness.

We also know that a lack of sleep impacts your immune system. So after just one night of four to five hours of sleep, there is a 70% reduction in critical anticancer-fighting immune cells called natural killer cells. And that's the reason that we know that short sleep duration predicts your risk for developing numerous forms of cancer. And that list currently includes cancer of the bowel, cancer of the prostate, as well as cancer of the breast. In fact, the link between a lack of sleep and cancer is now so strong that recently the World Health Organization decided to classify any form of nighttime shift work as a probable carcinogen. So in other words, jobs that may induce cancer because of a disruption of your sleep rate rhythms.

We also know that a lack of sleep impacts your cardiovascular system because it is during deep sleep at night that you receive this most wonderful form of effectively blood pressure medication. Your heart rate drops, your blood pressure goes down. If you're not getting sufficient sleep, you're not getting that reboot of the cardiovascular system, so your blood pressure rises. You have, if you're getting six hours of sleep or less, a 200% increased risk of having a fatal heart attack or stroke in your lifetime.

There is a global experiment that is performed on 1.6 billion people twice a year and it's called daylight saving time. And we know that in the spring, when we lose one hour of sleep, we see a subsequent 24% increase in heart attacks the following day.

Another question, perhaps, is what is the recycle rate of a human being? How long can we actually last without sleep before we start to see declines in your brain function or even impairments within your body? And the answer seems to be about 16 hours of wakefulness. Once you get past 16 hours of being awake, that's when we start to see mental deterioration and physiological deterioration in the body. We know that after you've been awake for 19 or 20 hours, your mental capacity is so impaired that you would be as deficient as someone who was legally drunk behind the wheel of a car. So if you were to ask me what is the recycle rate of a human being, it does seem to be about 16 hours and we need about eight hours of sleep to repair the damage of wakefulness. Wakefulness essentially is low-level brain damage.
