ceramide and cancer

Here is part of a discussion that took place on the Yahoo cancercured chat group regarding ceramide:

Mike wrote: << Since ceramide, a fatty acid, can induce ER stress in
cancer cells leading to autophagy and apoptosis, I’m wondering about ways to
increase ceramide production. It seems to me that an extraction of
cannabinoids into coconut oil at 127 degrees (for decarboxylation) would provide both
a carrier and a substrate for ceramide production. The cannabinoids are
known to cause this stimulus and the lauric acid in the coconut oil would be
the substrate/carrier. I think this might be enhanced by coadministration of
vitamin D3. >>

Please see below for articles regarding ceramide by Dr. Stephen Martin
(immunologist of Grouppe Kurosawa)…

You might especially appreciate the first one, if you haven’t seen it
before.

Best wishes,

autophagy. In order for ceramide to be able to effectively activate
autophagy, mTOR MUST be inhibited. >>
