Dehu’s PHC takes a unique approach for detection and treatment of women’s cancers

As more women are getting diagnosed with cancer and treatment at private health care facility or tertiary health care centre in cities is becoming difficult, a Primary Health Centre (PHC) from Pune district has taken a proactive initiative 

Dehu’s PHC takes a unique approach for detection and treatment of women’s cancersA PHC from Pune had held a free uterus and breast cancer check-up camp for women from the district. The PHC has tied up with different Non-Governmental Organisations (NGO’s) who would then help in free treatment post detection of those diagnosed with cancer.

Could reused cooking oil trigger breast cancer spread?

A recent study in mice showed that reheated cooking oil might trigger cell changes that can promote late-stage breast cancer growth

Could reused cooking oil trigger breast cancer spread?Researchers from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign tested ‘thermally abused frying oil,’ which is cooking oil that has undergone reheating to high temperatures multiple times, in laboratory mice and found that it increased metastatic breast cancer growth. The study states reused cooking oil could trigger breast cancer. The team reported these findings in the […]

Cancer: Compound found in broccoli, kale can suppress tumour growth

The decreased risk of cancer has for long been associated with consumption of broccoli, cabbage, cauliflower, collard greens, Brussels sprouts and kale, but the actual gene which works for it was not known. The current research has found that these cruciferous vegetables contain a molecule which inactivates a gene known as WWP1

Cancer: Compound found in broccoli, kale can suppress tumour growthThe body has its own mechanisms for fighting cancer, but sometimes they are too weak to suppress tumour growth. Now, scientists have found that broccoli, kale, and other cruciferous vegetables contain a compound that could reinvigorate one of these innate mechanisms. Researchers from Harvard Medical Schools Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center in Boston, Massachusetts, saw […]

Soy foods linked to fewer fractures in younger breast cancer survivors, finds study

A new paper in JNCI Cancer Spectrum, published by Oxford University Press, is the first study to find that diets high in soy foods are associated with a decreased risk of osteoporotic bone fractures in pre-menopausal breast cancer survivors

Soy foods linked to fewer fractures in younger breast cancer survivors, finds studyMany treatments for breast cancer can cause premature menopause and decrease bone mineral density. This leads to a higher incidence of osteoporosis-related fractures among survivors compared to healthy women in the same age range, and yet many factors connected to this increase in fracture risks are understudied. Researchers here studied the impact that BMI, exercise, […]

Consuming a healthy diet slashes breast cancer death risk in older women

A balanced, low-fat diet significantly lowers the risk of dying from breast cancer in postmenopausal women, according to new long-term data from the Women’s Health Initiative (WHI) Dietary Modification trial

Consuming a healthy diet slashes breast cancer death risk  in older women“Ours is the first randomised, controlled trial to prove that a healthy diet can reduce the risk of death from breast cancer. The balanced diet we designed is one of moderation, and after nearly 20 years of follow-up, the health benefits are still accruing,” lead investigator Dr Rowan Chlebowski from Harbor-UCLA Medical Center in Torrance, […]
