A little squeeze may be all that it takes to prevent malignant breast cells triggering cancer, new research has shown. Laboratory experiments showed that applying physical pressure to the cells guided them back to a normal growth pattern.
Think about that. 
The findings, presented Monday, Dec. 17 at the annual meeting of the American Society for Cell Biology in San Francisco, "show for the first time that mechanical forces alone can revert and stop the out-of-control growth of cancer cells. This change happens even though the genetic mutations responsible for malignancy remain, setting up a nature-versus-nurture battle in determining a cell’s fate. We are showing that tissue organization is sensitive to mechanical inputs from the environment at the beginning stages of growth and development,” said principal investigator Daniel Fletcher, professor of bioengineering at Berkeley and faculty scientist at the Berkeley Lab. “An early signal, in the form of compression, appears to get these malignant cells back on the right track.”
I love it when medical science finally catches up to something and calls it the "first time" it's being shown. Anyway... don't underestimate the power of touch, folks, especially loving touch. When with a loved one, friend, family member, etc., trust your inner guidance, follow your hands. They may be leading you not just to a place that feels good, but to a spot that needs healing. 

Squeeze away!
