Vitamin D Halts Growth of Breast Cancer Tumors

Cancer • • Breast CancerFeb 18 10

For the past 18 months, I’ve been working on building a new research library consisting of over 1200 books on natural health topics. Through some rather advanced technologies that took me far longer to build than I originally anticipated, I’m now able to locate and collect, within minutes, paragraphs on any combination of topics from among these 1200 books.

For example, today I wanted to research “Vitamin D” and “Breast Cancer.” This produced a collection of well over 650 quotations on the subject from the various sources in my private library. A small sampling of those results are shown below.

The information you’ll find in here is fascinating! You’ll learn that vitamin D cream can be rubbed directly on tumors to make them vanish. You’ll also learn how resveratrol can be used to amplify the results of vitamin D. There are also explanations on how vitamin D can be used to greatly reduce breast cancer cases in America, Canada, the UK and elsewhere.

Metastatic Breast Cancer: Causes, Symptoms And Treatment

Cancer • • Breast CancerFeb 18 10

In women, breast cancer is the common type of cancer and it is affecting one out of eight women. At any time, this cancer may develop and the risk increases with developing of cancer as the women get older. In most of the post-menopausal women, it is common and with the increase in age will increase the risk as well.

When the breast cancer is spread beyond the breast, then it is said to be in metastatic state. This means that cancer has traveled from breast to another part of the body. The cells of cancer will travel through blood vessels or lymphatic system.

As of today, the breast cancer like any other forms of cancer is considered as one of the final outcomes of multiple hereditary and environmental factors. The risk of breast cancer will be increased by 70% in young people by inhaling the secondhand smoke and primarily menopausal women are affected by this.

Aspirin May Boost Breast Cancer Survival

Cancer • • Breast CancerFeb 18 10

A new study of more than 4,000 women who were diagnosed with breast cancer shows that taking aspirin appears to significantly increase survival and reduce the risk of recurrence.

“Women who took aspirin were 50 percent less likely to die from breast cancer [during the study follow-up period] than those who did not take it,” said study author Dr. Michelle Holmes, an associate professor of medicine and epidemiology at Harvard Medical School and School of Public Health, in Boston.

The study is published online Feb. 16 in the Journal of Clinical Oncology.

The 50 percent reduction is the overall finding when comparing to users to nonusers, she said. “Statistically, the women who took it more days per week had a higher risk reduction,” Holmes noted. For instance, those who took it six to seven days a week had a 64 percent reduction in risk of death during the follow-up. For some reason, those who took aspirin two to five days a week had an even greater risk reduction, 71 percent, Holmes found.

International Conference for Young Women Affected by Breast Cancer Reaches 10 Year Milestone

Cancer • • Breast CancerFeb 18 10

2010 marks the 10th anniversary of the only international conference dedicated to the critical issues of young breast cancer survivors and those who care about them. Nearly 1,000 young breast cancer survivors, caregivers and medical professionals from around the world are expected to attend the 10th Annual Conference for Young Women Affected by Breast Cancer, to be held Friday, Feb. 26-Sunday, Feb. 28 at the Sheraton Atlanta Hotel in Atlanta, Ga.

One in eight women diagnosed with breast cancer is younger than 45 when diagnosed, yet their emotional and medical concerns are different than those of women over age 45, as is the impact of their diagnosis on family, friends, partners, colleagues and children. Fertility concerns and the possibility of treatment-induced early menopause are just two examples of the issues young women face.

A joint effort by Living Beyond Breast Cancer and Young Survival Coalition, this three-day event is a must for premenopausal women diagnosed with breast cancer.

Mammograms may be overused in women with dementia

Cancer • • Breast Cancer • • Psychiatry / PsychologyFeb 01 10

Some elderly women with severe cognitive impairment are getting mammography breast cancer screening even though they are unlikely to ever benefit from it, a new study finds.

Researchers found that among more than 2,100 U.S. women age 70 and older, 18 percent of those with advanced cognitive impairment had received a screening mammogram in the past two years.

This was despite the fact that these women would likely fall into a group that, according to guidelines, should not routinely have mammography screening.

Plasticizer may be tied to boys’ breast enlargement

Cancer • • Breast CancerDec 14 09

A report out today points to yet another possible harmful effect of exposure to phthalates—a controversial plastics chemical used widely in the manufacture of consumer products.

Researchers from Turkey found higher blood levels of the most commonly used plasticizer, DEHP, in a group of boys with abnormal enlargement of the breasts—a common condition seen in up to 65 percent of adolescent boys called pubertal gynecomastia. The condition usually resolves on its own after boys get through puberty.

“Unfortunately,” Dr. Elif N. Ozmert from Hacettepe University in Ankara, Turkey noted in an email to Reuters Health, “we are exposed to this (chemical) in many ways via direct contact,” breathing, and eating.

Osteoporosis meds may cut breast cancer risk

Cancer • • Breast CancerDec 11 09

Women who took a commonly used class of osteoporosis drugs called bisphosphonates had significantly fewer invasive breast cancers than women not using the bone-strengthening pills, according to a new analysis of data from the Women’s Health Initiative (WHI).

The analysis from a segment of the more than 150,000 generally healthy post-menopausal women in the WHI study found that those taking Merck & Co’s Fosamax, or other bisphosphonates, had 32 percent fewer cases of invasive breast cancer than women who did not use the osteoporosis medicines, researchers found.

Fosamax is now available in generic form as alendronate. Other commonly used medicines from the class include Roche’s Boniva and Actonel, which is sold by Procter & Gamble Co.

Spices Halt Growth of Breast Stem Cells

Cancer • • Breast CancerDec 09 09

A new study finds that compounds derived from the spices turmeric and pepper could help prevent breast cancer by limiting the growth of stem cells, the small number of cells that fuel a tumor’s growth.

Researchers at the University of Michigan Comprehensive Cancer Center have found that when the dietary compounds curcumin, which is derived from the Indian spice turmeric, and piperine, derived from black peppers, were applied to breast cells in culture, they decreased the number of stem cells while having no effect on normal differentiated cells.

“If we can limit the number of stem cells, we can limit the number of cells with potential to form tumors,” says lead author Madhuri Kakarala, M.D., Ph.D., R.D., clinical lecturer in internal medicine at the U-M Medical School and a research investigator at the VA Ann Arbor Healthcare System.

Pain often persists years after breast surgery

Cancer • • Breast Cancer • • SurgeryNov 11 09

In a study of Danish women who had surgery for breast cancer, nearly half still reported pain 2 to 3 years later, according to a report in this week’s Journal of the American Medical Association.

“Our study supports previous smaller studies that chronic pain after breast cancer surgery and treatment is common and needs to receive more focus in the future,” senior investigator Dr. Henrik Kehlet from the University of Copenhagen, Denmark, told Reuters Health.

The findings stem from 3253 women who had surgery for breast cancer between 2005 and 2006 and who responded to a survey in 2009.

Tiny chip can measure estrogen in breast tissue

Cancer • • Breast CancerOct 08 09

A new pocket-sized device may allow doctors to check a woman’s breast cancer risk in minutes with just droplets of blood or a sliver of breast tissue, Canadian researchers said on Wednesday.

They said the microchip device can measure levels of the hormone estrogen using far smaller samples than conventional methods, making it possible to quickly screen for breast cancer risk or check to see if breast cancer treatments are working.

“The new device is compatible with extremely small samples—around 1,000 times smaller than the amount needed for conventional analyses,” said Aaron Wheeler of the University of Toronto, whose study appears in the journal Science Translational Medicine.

Radiation costs vary widely by delivery, U-M study finds

Cancer • • Breast CancerOct 08 09

When cancer spreads to the bone, radiation treatments can help relieve the pain caused by the tumor. But how best to deliver the radiation may vary widely from one oncologist to the next.

A new analysis from researchers at the University of Michigan Comprehensive Cancer Center shows cost also varies widely from one delivery method to the next. Costs can range from around $1,700 for a single treatment with conventional radiation techniques to more than $16,000 for four treatments using a system of radiation delivery called Cyberknife.

“Some of the technologies that have been shown to be safe and effective, but have not been shown to be superior, can cost up to 10 times what a single dose of conventionally delivered radiation costs,” says David D. Howell, M.D., assistant professor of radiation oncology at the U-M Medical School and medical director of radiation oncology at the Norval K. Morey Cancer Center in Mt. Pleasant, Mich., part of the U-M Radiation Oncology Network.
