FOODS THAT FIGHT CANCER :: Ginger

Like mushrooms, this pungent, spicy root is a part of medical traditions around the world. It has a well-documented anti-nausea and anti-vomiting effect that may be useful in mitigating the side effects of chemotherapy, and it effectively boosts the immune system by causing sweating. Research strongly indicates that ginger is a powerful tumor suppressant and anticancer agent. One study used gingerols, the active phytonutrients in ginger and the main contributor to its flavor, to kill ovarian cancer cells.

Perhaps just as important as a cancer-fighting boost to your immune system, eating healthy can help keep you feeling better. In the struggle with cancer, diet is something that you have complete control over, and you can make it work to your benefit.

FOODS THAT FIGHT CANCER :: Kale

A cruciferous vegetable related to broccoli, we’ve written about kale before, and its well-deserved reputation as a “superfood” has rocketed it to popularity in recent years. Kale is packed with antioxidants and anti-inflammatory compounds and helps the body rid itself of toxins. Its cancer-preventive properties have been the subject of extensive research, but there’s some evidence that kale may help the body actively fight cancer as well, rather than merely lowering the risk.

Mushrooms have been valued for thousands of years for their healing properties. They’re packed with nutrients and many varieties are thought to help macrophages more effectively target bacteria, viruses and cancer cells. Shiitake mushrooms, in particular, have well-documented anti-cancer qualities. In addition to helping the immune system function more effectively, they are thought to spur apoptosis (cell death) in tumors in some instances. There is also some evidence that certain types of mushrooms may make cancer medications more effective, though more research is needed. Even crimini mushrooms, the most commonly eaten mushroom in the world, have a wealth of immune-boosting, cancer-fighting properties, perhaps even more than other mushrooms, like shiitakes, that are more commonly thought of as “medicinal.”

#Russia Gets Ready for Life Without #Visa and #MasterCard

Is Russia ready to cut up its plastic? After Visa and MasterCard stopped processing some Russian transactions in response to U.S. sanctions, Moscow says it could launch a homegrown payment system that could be ready in as little as six months, according to German Gref, chief of the country’s largest bank, Sberbank (SBER:RM).

Hard as it may be for Americans to imagine life without Visa (V) and MasterCard (MA), jettisoning them wouldn’t be all that difficult. Moscow has been preparing for the past few years to issue an electronic payment card that citizens could use for transactions with the government, such as tax and pension payments. Expanding that to include private purchases wouldn’t be hard, says Avivah Litan, an analyst at Gartner Research (IT): “If the banks are all on board, they can use the existing [card-reading] equipment in the retail stores. They’ve been thinking about it for so long, it’s just a matter of flipping the switch.”

Asset #Trading and Valuation with Uncertain Exposure

This paper considers an asset market where investors have private information not only about asset payoffs, but also about their own exposure to an aggregate risk factor. In equilibrium, rational investors disagree about asset payoffs: Those with higher exposure to the risk factor are (endogenously) more optimistic about claims on the risk factor. Thus, information asymmetry limits risk sharing and trading volumes. Moreover, uncertainty about exposure amplifies the effect of aggregate exposure on asset prices, and can thereby help explain the excess volatility of prices and the predictability of excess returns.

Loneliness of Kiev Bond Trader Shows Market Was Wiped Out

For 29-year-old Fyodor Bagnenko, a fixed-income trader at Dragon Capital in Ukraine, selling bonds has become a lonely business.

From his seven-story office in central Kiev, about 20 minutes from the barricades on Independence Square that were the epicenter of protests that triggered the worst crisis between Russia and the West since the Cold War, he would trade more than $20 million of bonds a day last year. Since the revolution, there have been days where he couldn’t close a single deal as trading in Ukrainian financial assets dried up.

“We’ve had days where the market’s dropped five points or more and not a buyer in sight,” he said as he headed to his morning meeting March 14. “People have gotten whiplash, with the market jumping from complete indecision to frantic action, with the whole world trying to buy, or sell, simultaneously.”
