(Best Syndication News) - Using a rat model, researchers investigated breast tumor growth associated with menopause, obesity and overeating. The rat model demonstrated the potential increased risk for breast-cancer tumor growth and progression with post-menopausal women who are obese and overeat. The results were published in the American Association for Cancer Research journal, Cancer Research.

Paul S. MacLean, Ph.D., associate professor of medicine at the University of Colorado Anschutz Health and Wellness Center in Aurora, Colorado explained that obese post-menopausal women are at an increased risk for developing breast cancer and for having less desirable clinical outcomes.

Menopause Hormone Replacement Therapy reduced Heart Failure and Heart Attack Risk

Wed, 10 Oct 2012 06:38:06 +0000

(Best Syndication News) - A study found that women who took hormone replacement therapy (HRT) for ten years had a reduced risk for heart failure and heart attack compared to women who did not take the therapy. The positive effects of taking HRT therapy appears to be a reduction in cardiovascular disease, but on the negative side, there is an increased risk for developing breast cancer. The new study suggests that the cardiovascular benefits are present without having an increased risk for cancer, deep vein thrombosis, or stroke.

The randomized trial-study was conducted in Denmark over a ten-year period. The researchers had followed-up after an additional six years to assess if HRT reduced heart disease risk if therapy started soon after menopause.

Low Oxygen in Cells might spur Cancer Growth

Fri, 04 May 2012 05:08:39 +0000

(Best Syndication News) - The tumor growth rate of certain cancers could be increased with low oxygen levels, according to recent study from researchers at the University of Georgia. The study was published in the early online edition of the Journal of Molecular Cell Biology.

The current consensus of most researchers is that genetic mutation is the main cause of cancer growth. This study suggests another cause: low oxygen levels (hypoxia) in cells. Oxygen may play a role in unruly tumor growth in certain types of cancer. Prior research showed that low oxygen levels were a contributing factor to cause cancer to advance, however, they did not point to it as the main cause.

Breast Cancer Cells Transformed into Stem Cells via Radiation Treatments

Tue, 14 Feb 2012 05:46:33 +0000

(Best Syndication News) Researchers say that radiation treatments can turn cancer tumor cells into “treatment resistant breast cancer stem cells.”

Researchers from the UCLA Department of Radiation Oncology at the Jonsson Comprehensive Cancer Center, say that if they can stop the transformation of these cancer cells into stem cells, radiation treatments could be even more effective.

Although half of the tumor cells are killed-off during radiation treatments, some that remain morph into these stem cells that are resistant to the treatments, according to Dr Frank Pajonk, who is also a scientist with the Eli and Edythe Broad Center of Regenerative Medicine at UCLA.

Big Lie #1: You Don’t Have Cancer

“We all have microscopic cancers growing inside of us all of the time,” Dr William Li, MD, a cancer researcher and pioneer, told Oz. There are 50 trillion cells in our body and all it takes is one cell to mutate.

Our immune system fights these cells every day. Also, our body naturally prevents blood vessels from growing into and feeding cancers.

Best Syndication News

(Best Syndication News) - The US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) announced a potential associated increased risk of saline and silicone gel-filled breast implants and a rare anaplastic large cell lymphoma cancer. The increased risk is small said the FDA, but at the same time is significant.

The FDA is asking health care professionals to report any women that have been diagnosed with anaplastic large cell lymphoma cancer so they can further evaluate this potential risk for ALCL cancer and breast implants. Because of the potential cancer risk, the FDA will be working with breast implant manufacturing companies to include notices of the cancer risk.

The National Cancer Institute said that ALCL is diagnosed in 1 out of 500,000 women each year. ALCL found in breast tissue is diagnosed 3 out of every 100 million in women without breast implants every year.

(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.

A Swedish study found that women who regulary take multivitamins on a daily basis had an increased risk for developing breast cancer. Researchers from the Karolinska Institute in Stockholm investigated 35,000 women from the age of 49 and 83 during a 10-year period comparing their multivitamin intake with breast cancer diagnosis. The researchers saw a 20 percent increased risk of developing breast cancer for those taking multivitamins on a daily basis.

One possible cause for the increase suggests the researchers is the increased amount of folic acid which might be possible to speed up tumor growth. Most multivitamins contain folic acid.

The researchers do point out that more study would be necessary to determine if multivitamins are safe or not.

(Best Syndication News) Breast cancer patients who took aspirin two to five times per week were 50 percent less likely to have a recurrence of the disease and less likely to die from it, according to research published in the Journal of Clinical Oncology.

Scientists already knew the beneficial effects of aspirin for heart health, but previous studies suggested no link between breast cancer and aspirin. The new research involved women who had already been diagnosed with breast cancer and had completed treatment.

It is believed that the anti-inflammatory effects of aspirin are responsible for both lower rates of recurring breast cancer and heart disease. Other studies showed that aspirin inhibited the spread of cancer. For instance, one study found that aspirin increased the lifespan of people with colon cancer. It also inhibited the growth of cancer cells in Petri-dishes.

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.
