(Best Syndication News) - According to a recent study conducted at the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center in Seattle, Washington, fish oil may reduce the chances for developing breast cancer in postmenopausal women. The study was published in the Cancer Epidemiology, Biomarkers & Prevention which is a journal of the American Association for Cancer Research.

The researchers asked 35,016 postmenopausal women about their intake of non-vitamin, non-mineral "specialty" supplements in the Vitamins and Lifestyle (VITAL) cohort study. The participants answered a 24-page questionnaire and they did not have breast cancer at the time of the questionnaire. They had a follow up six years later and there were 880 cases of breast cancer diagnosis.

A Swedish study found that women who regulary take multivitamins on a daily basis had an increased risk for developing breast cancer. Researchers from the Karolinska Institute in Stockholm investigated 35,000 women from the age of 49 and 83 during a 10-year period comparing their multivitamin intake with breast cancer diagnosis. The researchers saw a 20 percent increased risk of developing breast cancer for those taking multivitamins on a daily basis.

One possible cause for the increase suggests the researchers is the increased amount of folic acid which might be possible to speed up tumor growth. Most multivitamins contain folic acid.

The researchers do point out that more study would be necessary to determine if multivitamins are safe or not.

(Best Syndication News) Breast cancer patients who took aspirin two to five times per week were 50 percent less likely to have a recurrence of the disease and less likely to die from it, according to research published in the Journal of Clinical Oncology.

Scientists already knew the beneficial effects of aspirin for heart health, but previous studies suggested no link between breast cancer and aspirin. The new research involved women who had already been diagnosed with breast cancer and had completed treatment.

It is believed that the anti-inflammatory effects of aspirin are responsible for both lower rates of recurring breast cancer and heart disease. Other studies showed that aspirin inhibited the spread of cancer. For instance, one study found that aspirin increased the lifespan of people with colon cancer. It also inhibited the growth of cancer cells in Petri-dishes.

The World Cancer Research Fund (WCRF) located in the UK, analyzed calories in iced coffee drinks and found that many of them had as many calories as a whole meal.

Starbucks's Dark Berry Mocha Frappuchino had a shocking 561 calories for the “venti” or largest order. The WCRF said that it is over 25 percent of a women's daily calorie intake. If you opt for no whipped cream on top it would still be 457 calories. If you order the smallest version of this drink it would be 288 calories.

The reason that WCRF was pointing out the high calorie content is because being overweight increases your risk of cancer. The organization suggests that you should be as lean as possible without being underweight as a means of preventing cancer.
