The debate about the relationship between caffeine intake and different cancers has been fluctuating all over the radar screen. One year it looks better, and we should all be drinking more coffee, the next year it doesn't.
Is there a linkage between prostate cancer and caffeine? When we take large quantities of anything, there can be beneficial effects and dangerous effects.
Medicine is always evolving – so part of the problem can be summed up in the adage: Half the things we know to be true in medicine are wrong.
So we’re in the meat of the summer now: it’s July 4th weekend, the days are long, and that means lots of sunshine. But are you protecting your eyes by wearing sunglasses? The fact is you can look awesome and do something really really healthy for you also ..by wearing sunglasses to protect the eyes. Didja know that in the short-term, people who spend long hours on the beach without adequate eye protection can develop photokeratitis, which is a reversible sunburn of the cornea. It’s painful and can result in temporary loss of vision. Dr. Mark Former, an ophthalmologist with Former Eye Centers, says, “Sunglasses are extremely important, many people think that sunglasses are just for fashion, they are not they are mainly for protection, the main things that we try to protect against with sunglasses are cataracts, macular degeneration ,growths on the cornea which are called tritium and skin cancer at the lids.”
Birth Control Pills May Reduce Ovarian Cancer Risk
Oral contraceptives have been in use for nearly 50 years, and are taken by over 100 million women worldwide. Many studies over the years have cast doubt on the long term safety of "the pill", however, one study has found a possible benefit linked to its long term use. Published in The Lancet, the study found the longer women used oral contraceptives, the less likely they were to develop ovarian cancer. Though scientists have observed that the birth control pill is linked to reduced incidence of ovarian cancer, it was unclear how long the protection lasts after women stopped taking the pill.
Potential Ovarian Cancer Treatment Seeks Out Tumor Cells
Women suffering from metastatic ovarian cancer could eventually be treated with a radioactive compound capable of seeking out and destroying tumor cells, according to an initial study by the Sahlgrenska Academy. The purpose of this patient study, published in the Journal of Nuclear Medicine, was to study the substance's distribution throughout the body and the presence of side effects in nine women with ovarian cancer.
