(Best Syndication News) - Surving colon cancer might be improved with consistent exercise said a new study conducted at the Siteman Cancer Center at Washington University School of Medicine and Barnes-Jewish Hospital in St. Louis.

The researchers worked with data collected during the American Cancer Society Prevention Study II (CPS II) to determine if exercise would reduce the risk for dying from colon cancer. The CPS II study collected data from 150,000 men and women. In this study, the researchers looked specifically at exercise habits and colon cancer survival. The prognosis for those who exercised for at least 10 years had the lowest chance of dying from colon cancer.

The researchers pointed out that the people who were sedentary in adulthood died from colon cancer more often than those who exercised and remained active over the years. Lead author Kathleen Y. Wolin, ScD suggests that “It's never too late to start exercising.”

(Best Syndication News) - According to recent study, the exact opposite an “un-growth” hormone showed anti-aging potential. The compound is called MZ-5-156 and is a growth hormone-releasing hormone (GHRH) antagonist. The study results were published in the online December 6th edition of the National Academy of Sciences.

John E. Morley, M.D., study co-investigator and director of the divisions of geriatric medicine and endocrinology at Saint Louis University School of Medicine said that older people taking growth hormone supplements to reverse aging may actually “be hazardous”.

The researchers studied a SAMP8 mouse model for aging and they discovered that the MZ-5-156 had showed a beneficial outcome for oxidative stress in the brain. This helped the mice have better cognition and the telomerase activity was improved. The mice also had an increased life span while at the same time decreasing the amount of tumors. The MZ-5-156 also has been found in other research to repress prostate, breast, brain and lung cancer in humans. In addition there has been research that have measured improvement on short-term memory and improved learning. In this study, the MZ-5-156 created an antioxidant action that reduced oxidative stress and reversed cognitive damage in the mice as they aged.

(Best Syndication News) - According to a study black raspberries prevented colon tumors in mice that were fed the fruit. Researchers from the University of Illinois of Chicago published the results of this study in the November issue of Cancer Prevention Research.

The lead author of the study, Dr. Wancai Yang, professor of pathology at the UIC College of Medicine along with his colleagues studied genetic and how nutrition can prevent intestinal cancer and tumors. The study looked at mice that had the Apc1638 and Muc2 gene knocked out which cause the rodents to develop intestinal tumors with the Apc1638 and colitis with the Muc2 gene knockout. Colitis is a chronic ongoing inflammation in the large intestines which can lead to colorectal cancer.

The researcher tested to see if black raspberries supplemented in the diet of the mice would prevent colon cancer by stopping the development of tumors. The mice were given a 10 percent freeze-dried black raspberry powder over a twelve week time period.

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.
