Doctor Oz shares about his own colonoscopy on the ‘Dr. Oz’ TV Show and list of foods that prevent cancer

Sun, 05 Jun 2011 02:03:08 +0000


(Best Syndication News) - On Friday's ‘Dr. Oz’ TV Show, Doctor Oz discussed his own experiences with getting a colonoscopy and foods that you can eat to help prevent cancer.

Dr. Oz found a precancerous polyp when he did a colonoscopy for his TV show at the beginning of the season. He did another colonoscopy. He did not follow the rules the first time and he ate rice and lentils, which blocked the view of the colonoscopy from being complete. In the Dr. Oz’s first colonoscopy, the doctor found a polyp. This polyp over time could become cancer if it was not removed.

Because the colonoscopy was incomplete, the doctor treating Dr. Oz wanted to do the procedure again 3 months. It took Dr. Oz nine months before he got to the follow up colonoscopy. Time magazine will have an article covering Doctor Oz’s colonoscopy. The second time around they found another polyp but it was benign. Doctor Oz was upset by the colonoscopy results even though by removing the polyps, it prevent the cancer from developing. The doctor that treated him thought that Dr. Oz put other people before his own health.

Colon Cancer risk increased with less sleep at night

Tue, 08 Feb 2011 17:08:19 +0000


PD - National Cancer Institute

(Best Syndication News) - A recent study from the University Hospitals (UH) Case Medical Center and Case Western Reserve University School of Medicine found that getting an average of less than six hours of sleep each night increased a persons risk for developing colon cancer. The study results were published in the February 15, 2011 issue of the journal Cancer.

The lead researcher, Li Li, MD, PhD who is a family medicine physician in the Department of Family Medicine at UH Case Medical Center and Associate Professor of Family Medicine, Epidemiology and Biostatistics at Case Western Reserve University School of Medicine, said that they believe that this is the first study to find a colon cancer risk associated with the amount of sleep a person has on average each night.

The study results found a 50 percent increased risk for developing a colorectal adenomas with a person that averaged less than six hours of sleep each nigh to compared with a person that slept at least seven hours each night. While the adenoma is not cancer, it could develop into colon cancer tumors if they are not treated and become malignant.

(Best Syndication News) - Surving colon cancer might be improved with consistent exercise said a new study conducted at the Siteman Cancer Center at Washington University School of Medicine and Barnes-Jewish Hospital in St. Louis.

The researchers worked with data collected during the American Cancer Society Prevention Study II (CPS II) to determine if exercise would reduce the risk for dying from colon cancer. The CPS II study collected data from 150,000 men and women. In this study, the researchers looked specifically at exercise habits and colon cancer survival. The prognosis for those who exercised for at least 10 years had the lowest chance of dying from colon cancer.

The researchers pointed out that the people who were sedentary in adulthood died from colon cancer more often than those who exercised and remained active over the years. Lead author Kathleen Y. Wolin, ScD suggests that “It's never too late to start exercising.”

(Best Syndication News) - According to recent study, the exact opposite an “un-growth” hormone showed anti-aging potential. The compound is called MZ-5-156 and is a growth hormone-releasing hormone (GHRH) antagonist. The study results were published in the online December 6th edition of the National Academy of Sciences.

John E. Morley, M.D., study co-investigator and director of the divisions of geriatric medicine and endocrinology at Saint Louis University School of Medicine said that older people taking growth hormone supplements to reverse aging may actually “be hazardous”.

The researchers studied a SAMP8 mouse model for aging and they discovered that the MZ-5-156 had showed a beneficial outcome for oxidative stress in the brain. This helped the mice have better cognition and the telomerase activity was improved. The mice also had an increased life span while at the same time decreasing the amount of tumors. The MZ-5-156 also has been found in other research to repress prostate, breast, brain and lung cancer in humans. In addition there has been research that have measured improvement on short-term memory and improved learning. In this study, the MZ-5-156 created an antioxidant action that reduced oxidative stress and reversed cognitive damage in the mice as they aged.

(Best Syndication News) - According to a study black raspberries prevented colon tumors in mice that were fed the fruit. Researchers from the University of Illinois of Chicago published the results of this study in the November issue of Cancer Prevention Research.

The lead author of the study, Dr. Wancai Yang, professor of pathology at the UIC College of Medicine along with his colleagues studied genetic and how nutrition can prevent intestinal cancer and tumors. The study looked at mice that had the Apc1638 and Muc2 gene knocked out which cause the rodents to develop intestinal tumors with the Apc1638 and colitis with the Muc2 gene knockout. Colitis is a chronic ongoing inflammation in the large intestines which can lead to colorectal cancer.

The researcher tested to see if black raspberries supplemented in the diet of the mice would prevent colon cancer by stopping the development of tumors. The mice were given a 10 percent freeze-dried black raspberry powder over a twelve week time period.

The World Cancer Research Fund (WCRF) located in the UK, analyzed calories in iced coffee drinks and found that many of them had as many calories as a whole meal.

Starbucks's Dark Berry Mocha Frappuchino had a shocking 561 calories for the “venti” or largest order. The WCRF said that it is over 25 percent of a women's daily calorie intake. If you opt for no whipped cream on top it would still be 457 calories. If you order the smallest version of this drink it would be 288 calories.

The reason that WCRF was pointing out the high calorie content is because being overweight increases your risk of cancer. The organization suggests that you should be as lean as possible without being underweight as a means of preventing cancer.

Colonoscopy Useless For Reducing Right Side Colon Cancer – Better Preparation May Help – Polyps Different in Ascending Portion

Tue, 16 Dec 2008 03:17:46 +0000


See Better Diagram Below

(Best Syndication News) Colonoscopies don’t reduce the risk of death due to colon cancer in the right part of the colon, but they do significantly reduce the risk if the cancer is located on left side. The colon travels up the left side of the body from the anus and then traverses across and down the right side (ascending) of the body to the intestines (see diagram below).

The right side of the colon is responsible for absorbing water and electrolytes. The left section of the colon is responsible for preparing the stool for evacuation. According to cancer answers, more than 50 percent of the cancers are in rectum near the sigmoid. About 25 percent of the cancers are in the ascending portion, 15 percent are in the transverse portion and 10 percent in the descending portion of the colon. They say there has been a shift towards the right side over the past two decades.

Tests for Different Possible Cancers

Wed, 19 Nov 2008 21:28:42 +0000


Best Syndication News

If cancer is a possibility, it is your doctor’s responsibility to order the necessary tests to accurately and quickly diagnose your cancer. The faster your cancer is diagnosed, the more quickly you can begin treatment and increase your chance of survival. Here are some tests that should be run if you suspect cancer:

Skin cancer

If your doctor thinks you have melanoma, he or she should take a biopsy from the area around the melanoma and send it to a pathology lab for analysis. If your biopsy shows melanoma, you may need to have more tests, like another biopsy or a lymph node dissection to determine whether the cancer has spread to your lymph nodes.

Colon Cancer Gene Found – Scientists Begin To Understand The Link With Obesity

Wed, 01 Oct 2008 03:35:13 +0000


See Larger Image Below

(Best Syndication News) Researchers in the United States report that there is a link between a gene variation and colon cancer. It is hoped that a screening or diagnostic tool can be developed.

Previous studies have found that there is an association between obesity and colorectal cancer. If a person has a gene for a protein hormone that is secreted by fat cells he or she is at a reduced risk for colorectal cancer. The hormone, Adiponectin which is secreted by the fat tissue, is inversely proportional to obesity and high levels of insulin.

Study Finds Virtual Colonoscopy As Good As Gold Standard – How CT Scan Procedure Is Done

Thu, 18 Sep 2008 23:44:36 +0000


CT Equipment - See Videos Below

(Best Syndication News) New research suggests that computerized tomographic (CT) colonography, sometimes refereed to as a virtual colonoscopy, is as accurate as conventional colonoscopies when screening for colorectal cancers and pre-cancerous polyps (See Videos Below). Although the ordinary colonoscopy using an endoscope has been the gold standard, this new CT colonography allows doctors to visually see the colon in three dimensions.

The National CT Colonography Trial, conducted by American College of Radiology Imaging Network (ACRIN), indicates that CT could serve as an initial screening exam for colorectal cancer. The group hopes that more people will be tested using this less invasive method.

Psyllium Husk - A Component of Colon Cleansing

Fri, 04 Jul 2008 04:38:38 +0000


Stock Photo

Psyllium husk is a white powdery substance taken as part of a daily colon cleansing program. It is obtained from the Psyllium plant, more specifically, the coating around the seed of the plant itself. Though these seeds can be used for other purposes, it is more commonly associated with colon cleansing regimens. It is functionally similar to fiber due to its make up of complex carbohydrate components.

The Psyllium husks are placed inside capsules. These are then used as dietary supplements during the colon cleansing procedure itself. In other forms, it is processed into a powdery substance for easy use. The benefits of P. husks are numerous. The main benefit is with regards to effective colon cleansing. It prevents instances of constipation as well as improving the overall health of the colon itself. It improves the bowel movements as the fiber located in the P. husk acts similarly to a laxative. Many laxative products contain a modest amount of P. husk.
