The four lifestyle habits that are behind 500 cases of female cancers a WEEK

Over 26,000 female cancers could be avoided a year if women drank less alcohol, ate more fibre, cut down on processed meat and were more active, a study by Cancer Research UK found.

Its incidence has increased in recent decades, and now more than one million CRC patients are diagnosed and thousands die annually. The 5-year survival rate varies with the stage at diagnosis, are approximately 90% in the early stages of disease, and less than 10% in advanced disease. Non-alcoho...

AbstractPurpose of ReviewBreast cancer is the most common cancer among females in developed countries. Strategies such as early detection by breast cancer screening can reduce the burden of disease but have disadvantages including overdiagnosis and increased cost. Stratification of women according to the risk of developing breast cancer, based on genetic and lifestyle risk factors, could improve risk-reduction and screening strategies by targeting those most likely to benefit.Recent FindingsBreast cancer risk is partly determined by genetic factors including rare pathogenic variants in susceptibility genes and common low-r...

Conclusion. For African American older adults living in economically disadvantaged urban areas, CRCs contribute to poor physical HRQoL. Evaluation and treatment of CRCs in African American older adults may be a strategy for reduction of disparities in HRQoL in this population. As smoking is the major modifiable risk factor for CRCs, there is a need to increase accessibility of smoking cessation programs in economically disadvantaged urban areas. More research is needed on the types, management, and prognosis of CRCs such as asthma, chronic bronchitis, and emphysema in African American older adults who reside in low-income ...

It is quite easy to find correlations between the many varied aspects of aging. People age at different rates, largely due to differences in lifestyle choices: exercise, calorie intake, smoking, and so forth. Genetics are less of an influence. While there is tremendous interest in the genetics of aging, I have to think that this is something of a case of a hammer in search of a nail. This is an era of genetic technologies and genetic data, in which the cost of the tools has fallen so low and the scope of the capabilities has expanded so greatly that everyone is tempted to use it in every possible circumstance. Yet outside ...

CONCLUSION: For years the FDA-approved, well-tolerated, inexpensive, orally-administered drug Disulfiram was used in the treatment of chronic alcoholism, but it has recently demonstrated anti-cancer effects in a range of solid and hematological malignancies. Its combination with clinically relevant copper concentrations might overcome the resistance of many anti-cancer drugs in vitro, in vivo, and in patients.

AbstractPurpose of ReviewPancreatic cancer remains one of the most lethal of malignancies with 5-year survival of only 8%. A number of reasons account for the high fatality rate including few known modifiable risk factors, no effective screening tools, and lack of early diagnostic symptoms. Therefore, in this review, we aim to summarize existing evidence from major studies concerning (1) risk factors for risk assessment and risk stratification, and (2) screening modalities and early detection markers to better understand the ways to prevent pancreatic cancer or identify it at earlier stages. Improvements in primary and sec...

MHT containing natural estrogen and natural progesterone and some progestogens, is an effective treatment and is safer to the breast than high dose (0,625 mg or more) of equine estrogen with MPA. This latter treatment is associated with a higher incidence of breast cancer, in the range of the higher incidence of breast cancer due to drinking two or more alcohol drinks per day or gaining five of or more kilograms of weight. In women, at risk for breast cancer, with menopausal complaints special attention much be made to prescribe breast safe hormonal therapy.
