Study published in British Journal of Cancer found women who used to smoke were still 7% more at risk of diseaseSmoking increases the risk of breast cancer in older women by almost a fifth, a study has found. The discovery adds to a growing weight of evidence linking exposure to tobacco smoke with the disease.US scientists who tracked the progress of around 186,000 women aged 50 to 71 found that those who smoked were 19% more likely to develop breast cancer than those who had never smoked. Women who once smoked but then kicked the habit were still 7% more at risk.The results held true even after accounting for alcohol cons...

Improved screening methods likely following new insights into Barrett's esophagus, cancer evolution
A new appreciation of how cancer cells evolve could help scientists design better screening methods to catch cancer before it advances.Researchers at Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center studying the precancerous condition Barrett's esophagus have shown that rather than resulting from a steady accumulation of small genetic mutations, cancer arises a few years after cells begin to undergo large, drastic mutations. This insight could help researchers detect cells on the cusp of becoming malignant and distinguish benign from dangerous pre-cancerous conditions. (Source: Health News from Medical News Today)

Because berries are approximately 80–90 % water, the freeze-drying process concentrates these bioactive constituents approximately tenfold. This chapter describes methods we use to harvest the berries, grind them into a powder, and determine the nutrient, chemical, and microbial content of the powder before use in both pr...
