Dr. Zhang's advice reflects recommendations my colleagues and I recently made in the Journal of the American College of Nutrition. We published six precautionary principles to reduce the risk of occurrence:
Black women have the highest breast cancer death rates of all racial and ethnic groups. They are also 40% more likely to die of breast cancer than white women. Breastfeeding means less risk of breast cancer for mothers and their daughters.
Skin cancer. Two horrifying words that my dermatologist told me. It may have been just an abnormal growth, but those turn much worse if not treated early.
Melanoma is increasing in frequency. This is probably due to increasing sun exposure without using sunscreen, as well as use of tanning lamps, beds an...
Many health care entities cited by bill proponents as potential replacements for existing family planning clinics are unable to provide anywhere near a full spectrum of services. This disregard for the consequences of these bills sheds a disturbing light on the current legislative majority.
Now, it's a great reason to stop the insanity of putting things into my body that are just unhealthy. With all the amazingly healthy foods available to create a delicious, satisfying diet, there really isn't any excuse for eating what I'll call "The Dirty Dozen":
A sardonic insight by Bertrand Russell deftly, if disturbingly, conveys much of what is wrong in the realm of modern health promotion, particularly wh...
I applaud the pope's strong stance on climate change and the need to preserve the earth for future generations. When we speak of maintaining clean water supplies and a sustainable use of the environment, we should also stress the elimination of harmful chemicals in consumer products.
We're putting a call-to-action to all men: Get your baseline PSA blood test if you're 40 years or older. But of course, we know most men will not take this initiative, so this is an open letter to all women.
The promise of cancer prevention is far from fully kept, and deserves much more attention. The relevant medicine resides not at the cutting edge of biomedical advance, but in our lifestyle patterns, and the priorities of our culture.
Today we are protecting the public and are seeing policies across the nation and around the globe that are laser-focused on preventing harm to human health, specifically cancer.
They're the windows to the soul, the limpid pools in which we drown in each other's gaze -- all that good stuff. But it's the 21st century; haven't we figured out anything else the eyes are good for? You know, besides seeing?
To declare that screening mammograms have never saved any woman's life, not even one, is just as ridiculous of a claim as stating that all screening mammograms have saved the lives of all women who were ever screened.
The good news, though, is that hidden in the crush of research studies are very simple steps that we know help lower the risk of cancer. In fact, half of all cancers could be prevented just by doing things like: eating a healthy diet, exercising, keeping weight in check, not smoking.
