January 06 2017. A study reported in the JNCI: Journal of the National Cancer Institute found a greater risk of dying over a median 17.6 years of follow-up among female breast cancersurvivors who had a higher intake of grilled, barbecued, and smoked meat in comparison with those who consumed lower amounts.
Breast cancer is the most common cancer among women, with the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) reporting that 230,815 women were diagnosed with this disease in 2013 alone. Now, disturbing study results show that female breast cancer survivors who ate more grilled, barbecued and smoked meats had a greater risk of dying, compared to those with lower intakes. Keep reading to discover how cooking meats at high temperatures can generate dangerous toxins – and the best way to protect your health.
Can medicine that helps diabetes also benefit breast cancer?
A drug commonly used to treat type-2 diabetes can prevent or delay the recurrence of some types of breast cancer, researchers at Hadassah-University Medical Center have found.
Metformin (Glucophage and other brand names) was found in a study of 8,000 patients around the world to reduce the risk of repeated HER-2 positive breast cancers.
How to trigger change and better behavior
The research findings about the impact of drinking alcohol on overall health can be confusing. One day we see a report telling us that moderate alcohol consumption is beneficial, and the next there is a news story warning us to banish gin and tonic or red wine forever from our lives. What’s the story?
Dr. Sherrill Sellman’s book, “What Women Must Know To Protect Their Daughters From Breast Cancer, says, “Breast cancer will always be a tragedy that befalls a woman. It tears at the very fabric of a woman’s life rippling out to touch all those in her word. The fears, uncertainties, and pain are deeply and profoundly shared by family, friends and co-workers. It is even a greater tragedy when young women are faced with this crisis because the tumors tend to be more aggressive.
Great news for breast cancer patients: The rainforests of the world are said to contain over 5 million healing substances, with more being discovered every year. One such plant that has been known for its effect on cancer for almost 100 years is Una de Gato, or cat’s claw. While the evidence has been mounting for years as to how this strange-looking plant can help heal cancer on several fronts, new research published this year by Brazilian scientists dives deeper into what makes cat’s claw work specifically against breast cancer cells.
Did you know that there are over 700 different strains of bacteria that could potentially call your mouth their home? Thankfully, the average person only houses around 50 to 75 of them and only a few of these strains would be considered “bad.” The overabundance of those harmful bacteria can do more than harm your teeth and gums.
In fact, several research studies conducted over the last decade have made the connection between periodontal disease (periodontitis and chronic inflammatory gum disease are other names it goes by) and specific kinds of cancer, including Breast Cancer.
Can probiotics really reduce the risk of breast cancer? The answer may surprise you.
Everyone seems to be talking about the benefits of probiotics these days, and with good reason. They have been linked with health effects like improved digestive and urinary function, a stronger immune system, the healing of IBS and other inflammatory bowel issues plus so much more.
I’ve previously discussed the role of dietary lignans in the reduction of breast cancer risk and improvement in breast cancer survival, based on studies that showed that women with breast cancer who ate the most lignans appeared to live longer. However lignans are found throughout the plant kingdom—in seeds, whole grains, vegetables, fruits, berries—so how do we know lignans aren’t merely a marker for the intake of unrefined plant foods?
