Signs and Symptoms of Colon Cancer
By Stacy Simon Many of the symptoms of colon cancer can also be caused by something that isn’t cancer, such as infection, hemorrhoids, irritable bowel syndrome, or inflammatory bowel disease. In most cases, people who have these symptoms do not have cancer. Still, if you have any of these problems, it is a sign that you should go to the doctor so the cause can be found and treated, if needed:A change in bowel habits, such as diarrhea, constipation, or narrowing of the stool, that lasts for more than a few daysA feeling that you need to have a bowel movement that is not relieved by doing soRectal bleedingDark stools, ...

Daily diet of almonds is no magic solution for weight loss
ConclusionDespite the excitement in the tabloid headlines, this is a very small study with not particularly surprising results. You would expect that adding a food with known nutritional value to a daily diet would increase the overall quality of that diet, for the time that people continued to eat the food in question. The researchers' more ambitious aims – to show that nuts improved immune system and bowel function – were not met. In addition to its small size, the study had other limitations. As the people in the study were not blinded to the intervention period, this could have affected ...

Starting your baby on solids? Here are three new things I tell parents to do
Follow me at @drClaire All pediatricians have certain “speeches” they can do in their sleep — like the safe sleep speech, the potty-training speech, the healthy diet speech, or the speeches for managing fever, common colds, or vomiting and diarrhea. But research over the past few years has changed one of those speeches: the speech about starting solid foods. I still say the same things about waiting until at least age 4 months to start (closer to 6 months is likely better, especially if baby is getting breast milk), and about not starting two new foods at a time (so as to know the culprit should baby get ...

Lead poisoning: What everyone needs to know
Follow me at @drClaire The lead poisoning of thousands of children in Flint, Michigan is tragic — and should never have happened. If we are going to make sure that nothing like it happens again, all of us, especially parents, need to learn about lead poisoning. Lead is a chemical that used to be commonly found in paint, gasoline, and factory emissions. It also was used to make pipes, as well as the solder that holds them together. But once the toxicity of lead was fully understood, there were laws and regulations put in place to limit its use, and to limit the exposure of children and pregnant women to lead. The prob...

Researchers investigate why obesity can trigger bowel cancer
ConclusionThis was an experimental animal study aiming to explore the possible biological mechanism by which obesity may be associated with the development of bowel cancer. The findings suggest it may be down to silencing a particular receptor – GUCY2C – located on the cells lining the bowel. The study found that excessive consumption of fat or carbohydrate in mice was associated with loss of the guanylin hormone responsible for turning on the GUCY2C receptor. Silencing this receptor led to tumour development. Further study confirmed this by showing that using a drug to increase production of guanylin...

But at the same time, treatments to relieve chronic pain also have the potential to influence many aspects of a person’s life. Our best pain-relieving drugs have lots of unpleasant side effects. E...
