Hey all just listening to the show about apple cider vinegar. I just wanted a few things add that 70 year old security used it, we was game keeper too but must be doing something right table spoon a weak.
Also think cider vinegar helps by changing the pH which helps create wrong environment for thoart microbes that tend to cause illnesses.
Dichloroacetic acid, often abbreviated DCA, is the chemical compound with formula CHCl2COOH. It is an acid, an analogue of acetic acid, in which two of the three hydrogen atoms of the methyl group have been replaced by chlorine atoms. The salts and esters of dichloroacetic acid are called dichloroacetates. Salts of DCA have been studied as potential drugs because they inhibit the enzyme pyruvate dehydrogenase kinase.
Been looked at potential cancer treatment.
Interesting as Acetic acid is the main component of vinegar (apart from water), and has a distinctive sour taste and pungent smell.
Kind of gives more support to the suggestions that both these chemicals might help with some cancers or can be used to treat some cancers.
Analog for those that aren't sciencey best way to think of it as if you use blue prints for your chicken coop, but if you use steel instead of wood, or straw you get different results based on the properties of building material you use and how they act together. Same with molecules just on a smaller scale so the effect maybe hudgely different or no noticeable difference depending on the conditions.
In chemistry, a structural analog (structural analogue), also known as chemical analog or simply analog, is a compound having a structure similar to that of another one, but differing from it in respect of a certain component. It can differ in one or more atoms, functional groups, or substructures, which are replaced with other atoms, groups, or substructures. A structural analog can be imagined to be formed, at least theoretically, from the other compound.
Despite a high chemical similarity, structural analogs are not necessarily functional analogs and can have very different physical, chemical, biochemical, or pharmacological properties.
In drug development large series of structural analogs of an initial lead compound are created and tested as part of a structure-activity relationship study.
