Indoor Wood-Burning Stove and Fireplace Use and Breast Cancer in a Prospective Cohort Study

Conclusions: In this prospective study, using an indoor wood-burning stove/fireplace in the longest adult residence at least once a week and burning either wood or natural gas/propane was associated with a modestly higher risk of breast cancer. https://doi.org/10.1289/EHP827 Received: 18 July 2016 Revised: 16 November 2016 Accepted: 09 December 2016 Published: 18 July 2017 Address correspondence to A.J.

High rental costs mean many public service employees in England are spending more than a third of their wages on rent, according to research published today (Tuesday) by UNISON. Hospital porters are struggling the most, with rents effectively unaffordable for them in all nine English regions. The most expensive areas for porters are London, the South East and the East of England where housing costs swallow up over half their take home pay. Teaching assistants do not fare much better – in half a dozen English regions, rental costs are more than a third of their monthly wage. The same is true for refuse drivers in five...

It is critical for survival to assign positive or negative valence to salient stimuli in a correct manner. Accordingly, harmful stimuli and internal states characterized by perturbed homeostasis are accompanied by discomfort, unease, and aversion. Aversive signaling causes extensive suffering during chronic diseases, including inflammatory conditions, cancer, and depression. Here, we investigated the role of melanocortin 4 receptors (MC4Rs) in aversive processing using genetically modified mice and a behavioral test in which mice avoid an environment that they have learned to associate with aversive stimuli. In normal mice...

Receptor tyrosine kinases (RTKs) are important drivers of cancers. In addition to genomic alterations, aberrant activation of WT RTKs plays an important role in driving cancer progression. However, the mechanisms underlying how RTKs drive prostate cancer remain incompletely characterized. Here we show that non-proteolytic ubiquitination of RTK regulates its kinase activity and contributes to RTK-mediated prostate cancer metastasis. TRAF4, an E3 ubiquitin ligase, is highly expressed in metastatic prostate cancer. We demonstrated here that it is a key player in regulating RTK-mediated prostate cancer metastasis. We further i...

Abstract Transfeminine individuals are treated with estradiol and anti-androgen agents to transition to a more feminine appearance. The physical changes that occur with estradiol therapy include breast development, body fat redistribution, and decreased muscle mass. Transfeminine treatment regimens require monitoring and dose adjustments to achieve appropriate physiologic targets to enhance feminization and decrease risk of adverse outcomes. Adverse effects associated with estradiol use include thromboembolic disease, macroprolactinoma, breast cancer, coronary artery disease, cerebrovascular disease, cholelithiasi...

Republicans on Capitol Hill are giving up on what might be their last best chance to overhaul Medicare, just as they’re losing their leading champion on the issue, House Speaker Paul Ryan. The quiet surrender on a subject that’s energized GOP fiscal hawks for the better part of a decade comes as new projections show Medicare’s trust fund in its worst shape since the recession, partly because of Republicans’ other chief obsession: their sweeping tax cuts The sudden silence on entitlements is an awkward one for congressional Republicans, who spent much of the Obama administration calling for major ref...
