Only 2% Of My Cancer Patients Have Had This Checked
I saw a patient recently who has stage four breast cancer. She’d been to some of the best hospitals and specialists for care. Before she came to me she’d had a mastectomy and chemotherapy. Then the cancer spread to her backbone and she had radiation treatment. Yet still, after all that time and until she came to my clinic, no one had mentioned a possible estrogen problem. No one ever bothered to measure her estrogen. They never looked at whether her breast cancer was estrogen positive or progesterone positive. The rates of most cancers have stabilized. Most cancers aren’t a death sentence the way they used to be. But there are five cancers where the rates are still going up. They are breast cancer, endometrial cancer, cervical, ovarian and prostate cancer. And the number one thing you have to do with these cancers is measure the estrogen in the blood. Unless you’re doing that it’s malpractice. Most places test tissue samples for estrogen receptors. Except most of them do nothing with the results. Probably only 2% of the patients who come to me with those cancers have had their estrogen checked by an oncologist. So I feel like now is the time to come out strongly and talk about where some of these cancers are coming from and how to prevent and take the fight to these cancers. One of the most widespread chemical offenders that causes a huge jump in estrogen is bisphenol-A. BPA is known to increase hormone-dependent cancers.1 BPA and similar chemica...
This study aimed to assess the relative safety and short-term efficacy of drug-eluting bead transarterial chemoembolization (DEB-TACE) and conventional transarterial chemoembolization (c-TACE) for treating peculiar anatomical sites of gastric cancer liver metastasis. MATERIAL AND METHODS Of the 68 patients with gastric cancer liver metastases confirmed by imaging and pathology, 35 were treated with DEB-TACE and 33 with c-TACE. The DEB-TACE group comprised 26 males and 9 females aged 28-75 years (56.8±6.3), and the c-TACE group included 19 males and 14 females aged 33-77 (60.2±9.4) years. Liver functions of th...
CONCLUSIONS The network pharmacology analysis reveals the molecular biological mechanism of Artemisia annua anti-NSCLC via multiple active components, multi-channels, and multi-targets. This suggests that Artemisia annua might be developed as a promising anti-NSCLC drug. PMID: 32474568 [PubMed - in process]

Providers involved in the care of children, adolescents, and adults with mental health issues are rightly focused on stabilizing those individuals. However, they should not forget the families and communities; they, too, are grieving with the toll of t...
We compared the efficacy and safety of transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS) vs. Sertraline in the treatment of Major Depressive Disorder (MDD) in South Korean participants. This was a multi-center, double blind, active controlled study with non-i...
Hi everyone! I’m looking for advice on which schools to apply to in this cycle. I qualify as Disadvantaged on AMCAS and have FAP so I am able to apply to 20 schools. I’ve left off the Philly schools for personal reasons but am open to any other suggestions for my school list. cGPA: 3.7, sGPA: 3.6 For additional context, I had a really rough first 3 semesters of undergrad which included loss of income for my family, a parent’s cancer diagnosis, and 2 hospitalizations for...
