Spread of Cancer May be Reduced by Maximizing Melatonin by Blocking Blue Light Says Photonic Developments LLC
Date:12/14/2012

University Heights, OH (PRWEB) December 14, 2012

Metastasis of cancer to distant sites is the thing that kills most cancer patients, not the original tumor. This breakthrough study at Tulane and Thomas Jefferson Medical Schools showed that the increased risk of metastasis of both breast cancer and prostate cancer can result from disrupting the circadian (daily) cycle causing loss of melatonin due to exposure to light at night. Avoiding the blue rays in ordinary white light for four hours before bedtime, coupled with 8 hours of sleep in darkness, may restore the full 12 hours of melatonin flow known to be possible (2).

According to Dr. Richard Hansler spokesperson for Photonic Developments LLC, "The study examined the molecular processes involved in the transition of stable cancer cells into cancer cells capable of moving through the blood stream to distant sites where new tumors can develop. They examined how the presence of various compounds required for the different steps in the process were associated with the presence or absence of melatonin. They looked at this in both cultured cancer cells (both breast cancer and prostate cancer) and also in human cancers grown as grafts on the backs of rats but supplied with human blood. In every case, cancer cells retained a static structure when melatonin was present, however, in the absence of melatonin, the conditions necessary for metastasis to occur were observed. The blood without melatonin was obtained from volunteers either during the day or during the night after 2 hour exposure to bright light. The blood with melatonin was from volunteers either during the night when they were kept in darkness or during the day following oral administration of a melatonin supplement."

"The transition of the cancer cells from one type to the other is a complex process. Reducing the risk of metastasis is not complex or difficult. A study at the University of Toront
