A group of experts working for the Spanish National Cancer Research Centre (CNIO) have managed to discover that shining cells are the ones that are responsible for developing tumors. These findings are believed to have a major impact on tracking the origins of chemical resistance and launching personalized medication solutions so as to develop therapies that can actually prove to be effective against cancerous stem cells.
These CNIO researchers have discovered a specific marker for cancer stem cells – Riboflavin. Riboflavin
, popularly known as Vitamin B2 is a pigment that emits a green fluorescence because of its accumulation within the intracellular vesicles. Researchers believe that this light emission property of Riboflavin can actually be used to track, isolate and purify cancerous stem cells without having to introduce antibodies or complex therapies into the picture.
The results of this research have been published in the Nature Methods Journal on September 29, 2014. This study was funded by a number of parties such as the National Institute of Health Carlos III, the European Union, the La Caixa Foundation and the Spanish Ministry of Economy and Competitiveness.
The group is headed by scientists Christopher...

A new study published in the International Wound Journal which shows that a bacteria which has been discovered in the stomachs of honey bees can be used to beat antibiotic-resistant bugs and treat persistent wounds has become a major talking point in the world of medicine. The study couldn’t have come at a better time because modern day medicine and overused antibiotics are facing a lot of resistance from countless diseases and minor injuries and infections that were once termed as “treatable” are once again beginning to kill. The main reasons why honey has been used as a form of medicine for thousands of years are that it never goes bad and it is a natural anti-bacterial. Honey has an excellent sugar content, acidity and viscosity which makes it extremely effective in sealing wounds. Small amounts of hydrogen peroxide have also been found in honey. However, this new study states that there could be something else at play as well. According to a group of researchers in Sweden, a unique group of lactic acid
bacteria has been found in the stomachs of honey bees. These bacteria are located in an enlarged section of...

The History of OROGOLD
OROGOLD was established to provide consumers with cutting edge skin care with an emphasis on anti-aging and a luxury experience. The anti-aging industry is growing by leaps and bounds whether it is in scientific technology being developed to extend life or skin care products to improve the appearance of aging skin. Seeing the consumer demand for products that help them retain a youthful appearance inspired the formation of the OROGOLD brand. Fusing the goal to provide the latest in skin care advances with a customer experience that goes above and beyond led to the use of gold as our signature ingredient. All OROGOLD products are infused with the finest gold imported from Italy.
Gold has been synonymous with beauty and luxury since its discovery. Although it is not known for certain when gold was first discovered, it is presumed to have been discovered by early hominids. There is mention of gold in the Bible which is believed to have been committed to paper beginning nearly 3500 years ago. Ancient Egyptian documents and inscriptions contain references to gold mining, geology and metallurgy dating back to at least to 3100 B.C. Ancient royalty was enamored with the metal; Cleopatra was rumored to have slept in a gold mask every night. This was just the beginning of a mystical journey to the present day when gold is still considered a valuable and revered metal. Infusing the products of a world renowned skin care company with this treasured metal is a suitable combination.
