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.

Conclusions: The assimilated group had significantly more depressive symptoms and lower quality of life than the other two groups. This may indicate that loss of the Hispanic culture may be associated with poorer psychosocial health among CCS. PMID: 29467567 [PubMed - in process]

This article describes this process. The development of the Healthy Congregations Healthy Communities Program (HCHC) was guided through a community-based participatory research lens and included: 1) establishment of a community coalition; 2) identification by coalition members of churches as the best venues for health promotion strategies among African Americans; 3) recruitment of churches; 4) development of a training manual; 5) recruitment and training of congregational health leaders (CHLs); and 6) "Passing of the torch" from the coalition to the CHLs who implemented the intervention in their congregations. We...

Authors: Khokhar HA, Loughman E, Khogali M, Mulligan N, O'Shea DF, Cahill RA Abstract Laparoscopic and endoscopic colorectal intervention and operations have their basis in real-time, image-based decision-making and step-by-step sequenced technical progress. The capacity to visualise accurately malignant disease wherever it may be including within the primary lesion and its draining lymph node basin as well as at potential sites of metastatic harbour (i.e. peritoneum, liver and lung) would allow more accurate surgery at the time of operation and enable personalised, stratified surgical intervention. In addition, su...

CONCLUSIONS: Real time intraoperative ICG fluorescent angiography (FA) is a safe and feasible technique to guide the surgeon in intraoperative decision-making process. ICG FA seems to reduce AL rates following rectal surgery for cancer. However large well-designed RCTs are needed to provide evidence for its routine use.

Authors: DE Manzini N, Bellio G, Corleone P, Troian M Abstract The management of rectal cancer has considerably changed over the last decades and complete response to neoadjuvant chemoradiotherapy is becoming a common clinical entity. There is still no consensus on the definition of complete response to neoadjuvant treatment prior to surgery. Treatment programs are mostly heterogeneous and non-randomized. In addition, techniques to diagnose complete response are still unclear and there is no uniformity in surveillance modality of those patients managed without operative intervention. We review the most recent evide...

By TRAVIS BIAS, MD The 80 year-old woman lay on her mat, her legs powerless, looking up at the small group that had come to visit her. There were no more treatment options left. The oral liquid morphine we had brought in the small plastic bottle had blunted her pain. But, she would be dead in the coming days. The cervical cancer that was slowly taking her life is a notoriously horrible disease if left undetected and untreated and that is exactly what had happened in this case. We had traveled hours by van along dirt roads to this village with a team of health workers from Hospice Africa Uganda, the country’s authori...
