Top 8 reasons the fight for a new "healthcare bill" is all a Ponzi scheme for Americans investing in more dangerous chemical medicine choices

(Natural News) One hundred years ago in America, there was hardly a case of cancer, type 2 diabetes, heart disease, stroke, arthritis, osteoporosis, fibromyalgia, ADHD, autism, Alzheimer’s or Parkinson’s disease. All of those “diseases” are really just disorders (since they’re not contagious), most of which happen to be preventable and curable with an organic, plant-based...

Abstract: This review synthesized physical activity and exercise intervention literature for the past 10 yrs for people with physical and cognitive disabilities including intervention characteristics, behavior change strategies, and types of technologies used to improve targeted outcomes. Systematic searches yielded 132 eligible studies. The major disability groups were multiple sclerosis (41%), stroke (15%), and spinal cord injury (12%). Research designs primarily involved randomized controlled trials (61%) versus quasi-experimental designs (39%). Approximately 20% of the interventions used some form of the following tech...

The breadth of a health insurance plan's network typically dictates the level of access that a consumer will have to primary care physicians, specialists, and other types of health care providers. Thus, the comprehensiveness of plan networks —including whether consumers have access to in-network cancer centers—is a critical component of quality health insurance. In response to increased health care costs and pressure to keep premiums down, health plans have begun to adopt “narrow network” plans. A narrow network plan has been ty pically defined as a plan with a more limited number of providers as co...

Postmastectomy radiation therapy (PMRT) generally improves locoregional control and overall survival in patients with pathologic lymph node-positive breast cancer, as evidenced by meta-analyses of randomized trials (1). Nevertheless, controversy persists regarding whether PMRT is indicated for all such patients, especially those with clinical T1-T3N1 who receive neoadjuvant chemotherapy (NAC) with a complete pathologic response in the involved axillary lymph nodes (ypN0). For such patients, the current standard recommendation is to offer entry into clinical trials comparing regional nodal irradiation (RNI) versus no RNI (2...

To the Editor: We read with interest the recently published report by Vashistha et  al, “Radical cystectomy compared to combined modality treatment for muscle-invasive bladder cancer: A systemic review and meta-analysis” (1). The authors searched 7 databases, found 19 studies evaluating 12,380 subjects, and finally selected 8 studies encompassing 9554 subjects eligible for m eta-analysis. They reported no difference in overall survival at 5 years or progression-free survival at 10 years within this cohort of 9554 patients.

In this issue of Oncology Scan, the Gynecologic Cancer editors discuss publications of molecular analysis of primary cervical cancer as part of the Cancer Genome Atlas project and advancements in 3-dimensional (3D) brachytherapy (BT) for cervical cancer. The genomic study highlights a specific type of cervical cancer classified as keratin-low, which has lower survival with surgery, and further work needs to be done to determine whether this difference in outcome holds true for patients treated with definitive chemoradiation therapy.

We read with interest the recent Red Journal article “Radical Prostatectomy Versus Radiation and Androgen Deprivation Therapy for Clinically Localized Prostate Cancer: How Good Is the Evidence?” by Roach et al (1). This was a thoughtful and critical analysis of the complex literature relating to irradiation versus prostatectomy in men with locali zed prostate cancer. Overall, the authors assigned low reliability scores to many of the studies evaluated, citing an inadequate (or unreported) duration of androgen deprivation therapy (ADT) with radiation therapy for intermediate- or high-risk disease, unadjuste...

The landmark Prostate Testing for Cancer and Treatment (ProtecT) study was published in September 2016 (1).  This is the first randomized trial to answer the question of which treatment among surgery, radiation therapy, and active surveillance is best for low-risk prostate cancer. The fact that the authors were able to perform and complete this study deserves immense credit.
