BERKELEY, NETRALNEWS.COM - Researchers in the United States (US) have discovered that the growth of malignant cells in the breast can return to normal patterns after applying breast massage.
These cells of malignancy, researchers say, actually do not really forget the way to grow as a healthy cell. With a few soft squeezes, the cells are reminded to 'get back on the right path'.
"For centuries, people have known that physical strength can affect the body," said Gautham Venugopalan, one of the researchers who led the research team at the University of California at Berkeley, as quoted from Daily Mail.
It is said, the energy released when massaging the breast can return malignant cells back into a healthy cell.
However, Prof. Daniel Fletcher of the Berkeley Laboratory said that squeezing the breast does not necessarily be regarded as breast cancer therapy. This finding is only intended as a new hope to study the growth of cancer cells and in time is expected to be able to heal.
Recent research shows that gentle squeezing or massage on the breast can prevent malignant cells in the breast from growing into cancer cells. The results of research in a laboratory conducted by US researchers showed the growth of these cells returned to a normal pattern after breast anesthesia.
This scientific evidence reinforces the belief so long that it takes power to influence growth. For example lifting weights can make the muscle enlarge, while the force in the form of gravitational force can sometimes affect muscle strength.
"Malignant cells have not completely forgotten how to be healthy: They just need the right gesture to guide them back to a healthy growth pattern," Venugopalan said.
The results were presented at the annual meeting of the American Society for Cell Biology in San Francisco.
