High Intake of Sugar-Sweetened Beverages tied to 78% Increase Risk for Endometrial Cancer

Risk of endometrial cancer rises with increase in sugar-sweetened drinks

Researchers found that sugar-sweetened beverage intake was associated with an increased risk – up to 78% higher – type I, but not type II of endometrial cancer.

Endometrial cancer is the fourth most common cancer in women, and eighth most common cause of cancer death among women in the United States.

Studies have shown women’s risk of endometrial cancer increases with higher levels of estrogen in the body – for example, increased estrogen due to diethylstilbestrol DES or taking hormone therapy for the symptoms of menopause.

Researchers found that sugar-sweetened beverage intake was associated with an increased risk – up to 78% higher – type I, but not type II of endometrial cancer. However, its association with endometrial cancer is unclear.

Top stories, special features, live blogs and more from TheGuardian.com

Early puberty in girls has been linked to breast cancer.  Data show that the worldwide incidence of precocious puberty has increased and the age of pubertal changes has decreased over the past two decades.

Many of the cases are attributed to excess weight gain but exposures to phthalates and endocrine disruptors chemicals have also been implicated as possible risk factors.

A Climate where clinical Pioneers have the Freedom to make Breakthroughs in Treatment

Law may change so doctors can test new drugs on patients

Law may change so doctors can test new drugs on patients
Lord Saatchi yesterday said that he was “grateful” and “delighted” that the Government was making “a decisive movement to take the Bill forward”

The strength of public support for the Medical Innovation Bill (Saatchi Bill) has persuaded the Government to offer legislation along the lines of the Medical Innovation Bill, following a public consultation to start in January 2014 and report no later than May.

Allowing doctors to test innovative drugs on patients without the fear of being sued would be a “huge stride forward” in the quest to find cures for cancer

said Lord Saatchi

What the Drug Companies really want

How the drug companies REALLY want to sell pharmaceuticals…

Mike Adams, the Health Ranger says:

” Ever wonder how the drug companies REALLY want to sell pharmaceuticals? Here’s the answer: Through vending machines!
