(Best Syndication) The cancer death rate in the United States is still declining, according to a report form the American Cancer Society. The mortality rate is down 18.4 percent among men and 10.5 percent among women since the mortality rate began falling in the 1990s. The 2005 data is now in.

Although there was an actual increase in the number of deaths (5,424 more deaths than the previous year), because of the population increase, the rate has declined. There were 559,312 cancer deaths in 2005 compared to 553,888 cancer deaths in 2004. The Cancer Society expects there to be 565,650 cancer deaths in 2008 (294,120 among men and 271,530 among women).

Health Insurance And Screening Saves Lives – American Cancer Society Reports Death From Prostate Breast Colon Cancers Reduced

Health Insurance And Screening Saves Lives – American Cancer Society Reports Death From Prostate Breast Colon Cancers Reduced Among Insured

(Best Syndication) It may seem self evident, but a new study confirms that people without health insurance are less likely to receive screening and are more likely to be diagnosed at a later stage for cancer. This leads to worse outcomes and a lower survival rate.

The American Cancer Society released the results of their study on Thursday. The society used data collected from the National Cancer Database which is compiled from hospitals and paid for by the American College of Surgeons and the American Cancer Society.

(Best Syndication) A new study that found a link between red meat consumption and certain cancers has stirred a response from the meat industry. The research conducted at the National Cancer Institute shows that people who consumed larger quantities of “red and processed meats” had a higher risk of developing bowel and lung cancer.

There may be a link, according to Amanda Cross at the US National Cancer Institute. They came to the conclusion after asking nearly half a million men and women aged 50-71 about their eating habits. None of the participants had cancer at the beginning of the study in 1995. Meat consumption does not appear to be related to other cancers.

Cancer Research in the Garage may be the Cure for the Future

John Kanzius - see video below

[Best Syndication] A Florida man has been said to have invented a machine that could cure cancer. Reports from WPBF, a West Palm Beach NBC TV station reported on this after the American Cancer Society website reported on the potentially new alternative to chemotherapy treatment.

The researcher is not a medically trained individual and was a former broadcast exective from Pennsylvania. John Kanzius is 63 years old and thought he could use his knowledge of physics and radio to treat cancer, which he also is suffering from. Kanzius worked on his invention in his garage in Sanibel Island, Florida.

Kanzius described how his invention works by using gold or carbon nanoparticles that are injected into the subject. The nanoparticles which are only one-billionth of a meter would attach to the cancer cells. Once the particles are attached to the cancer cells they would enter a machine that would give off radio frequency waves that is supposed to heat and kill the cancer cells but not damaging healthy cells.

(Best Syndication) People with coronary artery disease were much more likely to suffer from colorectal tumors and lesions, according to research done in Hong Kong. The study published in the September 26 issue of the Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA) indicates that people who were diagnosed with heart disease were twice as likely to have colon cancer and tumors.

They found that people with coronary heart disease, as determined by CAD scan, were more likely to have tumors or precancerous lesions. “Colorectal neoplasms and advanced lesions were more prevalent (34.0 percent and 18.4 percent, respectively) in the CAD-positive group than in the CAD-negative (18.8 percent and 8.7 percent) and general population (20.8 percent and 5.8 percent) groups,” the authors wrote.
