Nutritionists say it's 'too early' to advise avoiding emulsifiers - found in ice cream and chocolate
Emulsifiers have been linked to bowel cancer and inflammatory diseases in studies. But human research is limited, nutritionists at the University of Aberdeen said.
Patients with metastatic colorectal cancer who have a BRAF mutation have improved survival after treatment with three targeted therapies instead of standard chemotherapy, results from a phase III trial have shown.
BOWEL cancer is one of the most common forms of cancer in the UK. While it is not known exactly what causes it researchers have suggested it may be due to a medication almost everyone has had in their lives. What is it?
An 82-year-old male, with a history of bowel cancer with partial colectomy, gastroesophageal reflux disease, remote partial gastrectomy for peptic ulcer disease, and no documented prior kidney disease, presents with several months of fatigue and subacute decline in kidney function. He had no history of diabetes, hypertension, kidney stones, or prior urinary tract infections. He denied use of nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory agents, herbal medications, and recent antibiotics. There was no family history of renal disease.
A study looking at antibiotics and bowel cancer concludes that the drugs might increase the risk of colon cancer, but lower the risk of rectal cancer.
Scientists at Johns Hopkins University found that people who developed bowel cancer were more likely to have taken penicillin. But tetracyclines may have protective effects for rectal cancer.

BOWEL cancer is one of the most common types cancer diagnosed in the UK. Most people diagnosed with it are over the age of 60. The cancer can spread to the liver. People may experience a number of telltale signs if this happens.
ConclusionsThe prevalence rates for neoplasms, advanced neoplasms, and CRC in our current study were statistically significantly higher compared with those seen in average-risk populations. This supports the importance of more intensive screening for this subpopulation in preventing colorectal cancers, as well as pre-and early-cancerous neoplasms.
BOWEL cancer is one of the most common forms of cancer in the UK. While it is not known exactly what cases the cancer, lifestyle factors can mitigate the risk, including eating this popular staple, reveals study.
The University of Sheffield School of Health and Related Research (ScHARR) Bowel Cancer Screening Model has been used previously to make decisions about colorectal cancer screening strategies in England.
