Last month, the Nobel prize in medicine was awarded for two breakthrough scientific discoveries heralded as having “revolutionised cancer treatment”, and “fundamentally changed the way we view how cancer can be managed”. One of them went to a charismatic, harmonica-playing Texan named Jim Allison for his breakthrough advances in cancer immunotherapy. His discovery had resulted in transformative outcomes for cancer patients and a radical new direction for cancer research. And yet many cancer patients, and even some doctors, have hardly heard of cancer immunotherapy or refuse to believe it. Those who have struggle to make sense of the new menu of options and sort reasonable hope from overblown hype………..
Do you have an idea of what is in these blood pressure medications? Take away the “I” from an idea and you’ve got a NDEA. That’s the chemical that seems to have contaminated certain lots of a type of blood pressure medication. NDEA is short for N-nitrosodiethylamine. PubChem describes NDEA as a “synthetic light-sensitive, volatile, clear yellow oil that is soluble in water, lipids, and other organic solvents,” which is “used as gasoline and lubricant additive, antioxidant, and stabilizer for industry materials.”The description also mentions NDEA emitting “toxic fumes” when heated to a high enough temperature and being used in the lab to cause liver tumors for experiments……..
For decades, health experts have struggled to determine whether or not cellphones can cause cancer. On Thursday, a federal agency released the final results of what experts call the world’s largest and most costly experiment to look into the question. The study originated in the Clinton administration, cost $30 million and involved some 3,000 rodents. The experiment, by the National Toxicology Program, found positive but relatively modest evidence that radio waves from some types of cellphones could raise the risk that male rats develop brain cancer……..
Prostate cancer affects men more than any other kind of cancer. Almost 15% of men in the US suffer from it—a disproportionate number that could be significantly reduced. Some of the symptoms that accompany prostate cancer include: loss of bladder control, blood present in urine, and a burning sensation during urination. Studies show that a diet high in saturated fats, as well as being overweight increase the risk of prostate cancer.
In fact, more and more doctors are learning that a definite link exists between the foods we eat and the risk of cancer. These foods can be beneficial to anyone with a high risk of cancer:
1. Fresh Fish 2. Greens 3. Tomatoes 4. Coffee 5. Nuts 6. Pomegranates 7. Orange Vegetables Eating these foods can cut down on the risk of prostate cancer, but they can also have a positive effect on both a man’s waistline and his overall quality of life. It’s also important to note the presence of regular exercise reduces not only the risk, but also the degree of prostate cancer. Eat well and live well.
There are a number of ways to attack cancer; one of the most commonly used is radiation therapy. Radiation works on tumors in two ways; firstly, it damages DNA and, secondly, it produces oxygen radicals that also harm cancer cells. However, when oxygen levels are low (hypoxia), the body produces fewer oxygen radicals, meaning that radiation therapy is less effective. Because cancer cells divide so quickly, they require more oxygen than healthy tissue. At the same time, blood vessels within tumors are often poorly constructed, making them less efficient…….
Orange, red and yellow are generally what spring to mind when one considers October colors. But instead of rocking those autumnal hues, think pink instead. It is Breast Cancer Awareness Month after all. The use of pink to symbolize breast cancer awareness started in 1992, and came in the form of an overlapping ribbon. It was meant to show solidarity with those that have been impacted by the disease, which affects one in every eight women in the United States. Needless to say, over the years, the use of the color has evolved and it is now cast on a number of items…….
Halfway up a hill overlooking the Great Rift Valley in western Kenya are two graves. One of them is a few years old now, bristling with bushy shrubs stretching bright green leaves towards a cloudless sky. The other is a freshly dug bed of rough red dirt planted with a white wooden cross. They are the final resting places of Emily’s mother and father, who died within four years of each other. Still a young woman, Emily now looks after her family’s rural homestead near Iten – a town famed for churning out long-distance runners and playing host to Mo Farah’s training camps.
According to the post: “Fully ripe bananas with brown patches on their skin produce a substance called tumor necrosis factor, which can eliminate abnormal cells. The darker the patches, the higher the banana’s ability to boost your immunity and lower the risk of cancer”. It was posted with the encouragement: “Share with the people you care about”. Some posts are helpful, such as those warning home renovators to check for asbestos. But there’s also a mountain of posts about a wide and weird range of things that allegedly cause cancer……

Many people want to know their prognosis. They find it easier to cope when they know more about their cancer. You may ask your doctor about survival statistics or search for this information on your own. Or, you may find statistics confusing and frightening, and think they are too impersonal to be of value to you. It is up to you to decide how much information you want.
If you do decide you want to know more, the doctor who knows the most about your situation is in the best position to discuss your prognosis and explain what the statistics may mean.
