Abstract BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES: The potential benefits of home enteral nutrition (HEN) and the effects of HEN on quality of life (QOL) after esophagectomy remain unclear. The aim was to investigate the effect of 3 months HEN on health related QOL and nutritional status of esophageal cancer patients who were preoperatively malnourished. METHODS AND STUDY DESIGN: 142 malnourished (PG-SGA stage B or C) patients with esophageal cancer were assigned to receive Ivor Lewis minimally invasive esophagectomy (MIE group) with laparoscopic jejunal feeding tube placement or open esophagectomy (OE group) with nasojejun...

All women aged between 50 and 70 are offered screening for breast cancer. But how effective is it at stopping deaths – and might it actually do more harm than good?Many of us will know someone who had breast cancer found at screening. The cancer seen on a mammogram may have been microscopic, so early in its malignant life that it hadn ’t broken through the wall of its milk duct. Thank heavens, then, for breast screening, which is offered to all women between 50 and 70 in the UK and other countries. It is promoted enthusiastically as lifesaving, but does it deliver on its promise? And are the randomised con...

Conclusion This narrative review aimed to summarise data from published biological and epidemiological research to discuss the strength of evidence that alcohol causes cancer. The author gives their main finding as a link between alcohol consumption and cancer at seven sites, and also that the highest risks seem to be associated with heavier drinking. However, they state there's no "safe" drinking threshold and that low to moderate consumption still contributes to a significant number of cancer cases. The biggest limitation of this review is that it doesn't appear to be systematic. The author provided no method...
