Some Breast Cancer Patients Benefit from Tart Cherry That Reduced Joint Pain, and Sore Muscles

Posted by in breast cancer, Research

A new study reported in Science Daily concluded that tart cherry decreases joint pain and sore muscles in some breast cancer patients by reducing the musculoskeletal effects of aramatrase inhibitors. These inhibitors are a standard treatment for hormone receptive-positive breast cancer in postmenopausal women and help prevent recurrence by inhibiyting the action of amomatasew that is an enzymew that converts androgens to estrogens.

Increased Breast Cancer risk in Women Related to Night Lights

Posted by in breast cancer, Research

A new study published in Environmental Health Perspectives concluded that women who live in areas with higher levels of outdoor lights at night may be at a greater risk of breast cancer than women in areas of lower light,  The link was stronger among women who worked nights  Previous studies have found that exposure to light at night may lead to decreased levels of the hormone melatonin that can effect our circadian rhythms and lead to breast...

One alcohol drink daily raises breast cancer risk!

Posted by in breast cancer, News, Research

One alcohol drink a day (small glass wine or beer-10 gms alcohol) increases pre-menopausal breast cancer risk by 5 percent and post-menopausal breast cancer risk by 9 percent according to new research reported by the American Institute for Cancer Research and the World Cancer Research Fund. Researchers also found that vigorous exercise such as running or fast bicycling decreases the risk of both pre and post-menopausal breast cancer ,They also...

BPA/Inflammatory Breast Cancer Connection.

Posted by in breast cancer, Research

The chemical bisphenol A (BPA) seems to aid the survival of inflammatory breast cancer cells that reveals a possible mechanism for how the disease grows according to new research in the journal Carcinogenesis. They found that BPA increases the cell signaling pathways known as mitogen-activated protein kinases (MAPK) in inflammatory breast cancer cells. Researchers said “the study is the first to show that BPA increases signaling thorough...

Posted by in Blog, breast cancer, cancer, cancer research, cancer risk

In a study presented recently at the Frontiers in Cardiovascular Science meeting in Spain researchers concluded that there ia an association between high blood cholesterol and breast cancer based upon results of  a study over a 14 year period in the United Kingdom.  This retrospective study included more than 1 million people across the UK from 2000 to 2014. From a sample of 664,159 women 22,938 had hyperlipidaemia and 9,312 had breast cancer....

Can Breast Cancer Formation be prevented without Chemotherapy, Surgery and Radiation?

Posted by in Blog, breast cancer, cancer, cancer prevention

A new study published in Science Translational Medicine concluded that a novel breast cancer therapy that partially reverses the cancerous state in cultured breast tumor cells and prevents cancer development in mice, could one day provide a new way to treat early stage s of the disease without surgery, chemotherapy and radiation. This involves from a sophisticated effort to reverse-engineer gene networks to identify genes that drive cancer and...

Can a Protein be Used to Treat Triple-Negative Breast Cancer?

Posted by in alternative cancer treatments, Blog, breast cancer, cancer

A recent study published in Cell Death and Differentiation concluded that a protein that could prevent metastasis and recurrence of breast cancer has been identified. The absence of receptors for estrogen, progesterone, and Her2 in triple-negative breast cancer makes hormone therapies unsuccessful. Because of this lack of therapies,  the researchers examined a family of protein kinase enzymes, specifically, atypical protein kinase c lambda/iota...

Can a Virus Kill Negative Breast Cancer Cells?

Posted by in alternative cancer therapies, Blog, breast cancer, cancer

A new study in Cancer Biology & Therapy concluded that a virus not known to cause disease kills triple-negative breast cancer cells and kills tumor growth from those cells in mice.  The virus, adeno-associated virus type 2 (AAV2),  infects humans but is not known to cause illness. In previous studies the virus initiated apoptosis (natural cell death) in cancer cells but did not alter normal cells. In this study the researchers tested AAV2...

Does Postmenopausal Breast Cancer Risk Decrease with Physical Activity?

Posted by in Blog, breast cancer, cancer, cancer risk

A new study published in Cancer Epidemiology, Biomarkers & Prevention concluded that post menopausal women who undertook regular physical activity over the past 4 years that was equivalent to 4 hours of walking per week (cycling or other sports for 2 hours/week)  had a 10 percent lower risk for invasive breast cancer compared with women who exercised less during those four years. Data was analyzed from over 59,300 post menopausal women in...

Can NSAIDs Lower Breast Cancer Recurrence in Overweight, Obese Women

Posted by in alternative cancer treatments, Blog, breast cancer, cancer, cancer risk, cancer survivors

A new study published in Cancer Research concluded that the recurrence of hormone related breast cancer was cut in half in overweight and obese women who regularly used aspirin or other non steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAID’s). authors said “Our study suggests that limiting inflammatory signaling may be effective, less toxic approach to altering the cancer promiting effects of obesity and improving patient response to hormonal therapy.” ...

Can a Blood Test Predict the Risk of Non-Hereditary Breast Cancer?

Posted by in Blog, breast cancer, cancer, cancer detection, cancer risk

Researchers report in a current issue of Genome Medicine that a simple blood test is being developed that could help predict the likelihood of a woman developing breast cancer even in the absence of a high risk BRCA1 gene mutation. They identified a DNA methylation signature in the blood of women with both the inherited genetic mutation of the BRCA1 gene and also who developed non-hereditary cancer. In the study they used blood samples...

Does Limiting Carbs Reduce Breast Cancer Recurrence in Women with Positive IGF1 Receptor?

Posted by in Blog, breast cancer, cancer, cancer risk, cancer survivors, natural cancer treatments

A new study published in Science Digest and scheduled for publication in Cancer Epidemiology Biomarkers & Prevention next month concluded that reducing carbohydrate intake could reduce the risk of breast cancer recurrence in women whose tumor tissue is positive for the IGF-1 receptor. The researchers said “There is a growing body of research demonstrating associations between obesity, diabetes, and cancer risk. ” “There are similarities...
