Obesity and cancer death in white and black adults: A prospective cohort study

CONCLUSIONS: In this diverse cohort of adults, having obesity was associated with an increased risk of cancer death in White men and women. In contrast, having obesity was associated with a reduced risk of cancer death in Black men and did not influence risk in Black women.PMID:34693655 | DOI:10.1002/oby.23290

This study aims to investigate the association between seven urinary PAH concentrations (1-hydroxynaphthalene, 2-hydroxynaphthalene, 3-hydroxyfluorene 2-hydroxyfluorene, 1-hydroxyphenanthrene, 1-hydroxypyrene, and 2 &3-hydroxyphenanthrene) and CKD in the US adult population. A cross-sectional analysis using the 2015-2016 National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey (NHANES) dataset was conducted. CKD was defined with estimated glomerular filtration rate (eGFR) and albumin to creatinine ratio (ACR). Participants with an eGFR 30 mg/gm were considered to have CKD. A specialized complex survey design analysis package u...

a Martina Cavestro The incidence of early-onset colorectal cancer, defined as colorectal cancer occurring in young adults under the age of 50, is increasing globally. Knowledge of the etiological factors in young adults is far from complete. Questionable eoCRCs’ exogenous factors are represented by processed meat, sugary drinks, alcohol, Western dietary pattern, overweight and obesity, physical inactivity, and smoking, though with heterogeneous results. Therefore, we performed a systematic review to summarize the current evidence on the role of diet and lifestyle as eoCRC risk factors. We systematically searc...

In this study we have tracked by mass spectrometry how palmitic acid from the adipocytes is released to media being later incorporated in different breast cancer cell lines (MDA-MB-231, SKBR3, BT474, MCF-7 and its resistant MCF-7 EPIR and MCF-7 TAXR). We have observed that different lines metabolize the palmitic acid in a different way and use their carbons in the synthesis of different new lipid families. Furthermore, we have observed that the lipid synthesis pattern varied according to the cell line. Surprisingly, the metabolic pattern of the resistant cells was more related to the TNBC cell line compared to their sensit...

CONCLUSION: In 2020, the overall number of patients hospitalized with PE in France increased compared to the previous three years despite a considerable decrease in scheduled hospitalizations. Nevertheless, proactive public policy focused on the prevention of PE in all patients should be encouraged.PMID:34801044 | DOI:10.1186/s12931-021-01887-6

rsquo;Beirne Non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) is becoming the leading cause of liver morbidity worldwide and, as such, represents the pathogenic background for the increasing incidence of hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC). The annual incidence of NAFLD-related HCC is expected to increase by 45–130% by 2030. Diabetes mellitus is the most important risk factor for HCC development in NAFLD, with the risk further increased when associated with other metabolic traits, such as obesity, arterial hypertension and dyslipidemia. The highest risk of HCC exists in patients with advanced fibrosis or cirrhosis, although ...
