So men are dying because they don ’t have women’s brains? Show me the evidence

Mortality rates for prostate cancer are rising, but not because of any neurological determinismIt is the crossover moment. For the first time, more men are dying of prostate cancer than women are from breast cancer. Any GP surgery will offer a blood test to check a man ’s prostate-specific antigen (PSA) indicating cancer. All men have to do is ask.The trouble is that, as we all know, men are from Mars. They don ’t go to GPs, don’t talk about illness and believe in their own invincibility. Men with their compartmentalised brains are inherently greater risk-takers and believe they will beat the odds. In any case, to concede the threat of illness is an acknowledgement of weakness – very unmasculine.Continue reading...

Abstract Vitamin D activity is controlled by its receptor (VDR) located in many cells of the body. The presence of VDR in numerous cellular pathways suggests its important role in the etiology and development of many diseases. Increased risk of obesity, metabolic disturbances, bone mass disturbances and neoplasia among certain VDR alleles has been proven. The importance of VDR in the etiopathology of obesity is associated with the occurrence of polymorphisms: Fok1, Bsm1, Apa1, Taq1. VDR expression in adipocytes plays a role in the regulation of energy metabolism and the induction of obesity. Vitamin D and VDR poly...

This study investigates the effects of various NO2 surfaces on the risk estimates of postmenopausal breast cancer (BC) and prostate cancer (PC), both of which have already been associated with traffic-related air pollution. We derived exposures for individuals in two case control studies in Montreal, Canada using four different surfaces for NO2. Two of the surfaces were developed using LUR but employed different data collection protocols (LUR-1 and LUR-2), and the other two surfaces were generated using dispersion modelling; one with a regional model (dispersion-1) and another with a street canyon model (dispersion-2). Als...

For more than ten years now, evidence from observational studies has been accumulating indicating a protective effect of physical activity and exercise on survival (reduced cancer-specific and all-cause mortality) following a diagnosis of cancer. The initial study by Holmes and colleagues in 2005 in women with stage I-III breast cancer from the Nurses ’ Health Study has been followed up in patients with a range of cancers that includes breast cancer, colon and colorectal cancer, recurrent malignant glioma, and prostate cancer.

Authors: Kang SH, Cho J, Jeong H, Kwon SY Abstract Purpose: Expression of RNA-binding motif protein 3 (RBM3) is induced by hypoxia and hypothermia. Recently, high expression of RBM3 was reported to be associated with a good prognosis in colon cancer, prostate cancer, ovarian cancer, and malignant melanoma. Studies on RBM3 in invasive breast carcinoma (IBC), however, are limited. Methods: RBM3 expression was examined using a tissue microarray from 361 patients with IBC. Immunohistochemistry was performed for estrogen receptor (ER), progesterone receptor (PR), human epidermal growth factor receptor 2 (HER2), and ...

CONCLUSION: The bacteria from the submucosal areas and the bottom of the infected bone presented comparable susceptibility to the common antibiotics regimes. Streptococcus spp., Prevotella spp., and Veillonella spp. present a high abundance in MRONJ lesions beside Actinomyces spp. The MRONJ lesions bottom is in many cases not infected by Actinomyces spp. CLINICAL RELEVANCE: The removal of the necrotic bone reduces the variety of bacteria found in MRONJ lesions, in particular at the bottom of the lesion.
