The Importance of The Connective Tissue Matrix in Oncology Studies
If you’ve MELTed, you already know that fascia is a strong, fibrous connective tissue that encloses and stabilizes our muscles, internal organs, and even bones; and long ignored by medical professionals, it is getting much more attention as a critical component in our health. But it's not just that our fascia can become stiff if neglected or poorly hydrated.
It’s now getting attention in cancer research: In November 2015, The Osher Center for Integrative Medicine at Harvard Medical School and Brigham and Women’s Hospital will host a one-day conference on Fascia, Acupuncture and Oncology including “Oncology and fascia: Importance of the connective tissue matrix in tumor growth and metastasis.” Stay-tuned for the results.
In the meantime, how fit is your fascia?
