  • The dangers that doctors do not tell you about fibroids and minimally invasive surgeries. What you should know.

    Morcellation can be a Deadly Surgical Procedure

    by

     LMS Direct Research (http://www.lmsdr.org/uterinemorcellation.php)

    Routine “standard of care” minimally invasive morcellation surgery for “presumed fibroids” may upstage ULMS from stage 1, with a possible cure, to an automatic deadly ULMS stage 4. LMSdr is committed to halt this faulty practice. Please help us with your voice against this unethical practice! Together we are stronger and can change the world for the better.

  • CNN Coverage of Global Cancer "Disaster"

    This recent cancer study from the World Health Organization predicts a 57% increase in cancer cases over the next 20 years. But there are important lifestyle changes we can take now to help prevent the chance of cancer.  Read on to see what you can do...

     

    WHO: Imminent global cancer 'disaster' reflects aging, lifestyle factors

    By Tim Hume and Jen Christensen, CNN

    updated 7:20 PM EST, Tue February 4, 2014 CNN.com

     hdr-health

    (CNN) -- Cancer cases are expected to surge 57% worldwide in the next 20 years, an imminent "human disaster" that will require a renewed focus on prevention to combat, according to the World Health Organization.

     

    The World Cancer Report, produced by the WHO's specialized cancer agency and released on World Cancer Day, predicts new cancer cases will rise from an estimated 14 million annually in 2012 to 22 million within two decades. Over the same period, cancer deaths are predicted to rise from 8.2 million a year to 13 million.

     

    The rising incidence of cancer, brought about chiefly by growing, aging populations worldwide, will require a heavier focus on preventive public health policies, said Christopher Wild, director of the International Agency for Research on Cancer.

     

    "We cannot treat our way out of the cancer problem," he said. "More commitment to prevention and early detection is desperately needed in order to complement improved treatments and address the alarming rise in cancer burden globally."

     

    The report notes that the rocketing cost of responding to the "cancer burden" -- in 2010, the economic cost of the disease worldwide was estimated at $1.16 trillion -- is hurting the economies of rich countries and beyond the means of poor ones.

     

     

    Report editor: We can reduce cancer riskThe report said about half of all cancers were preventable and could have been avoided if current medical knowledge was acted upon. The disease could be tackled by addressing lifestyle factors, such as smoking, alcohol consumption, diet and exercise; adopting screening programs; or, in the case of infection-triggered cancers such as cervical and liver cancers, through vaccines.

     safe_image

    "I know the report said we can't treat our way out of (the cancer problem) but there are major things we can do," said Dr. David Decker who works in oncology at Florida Hospital in Orlando. "Virtually 80 or 90 percent of lung cancers are caused by smoking. I know stopping smoking is not easy for people, but it does seem like a pretty simple way to reduce the numbers."

     

    "The cancer rates are not going up for shocking reasons, but for reasons that are easier to understand, and if we improve overall health, there are things we can do to prevent this from happening," Decker said.

     

    Cutting smoking rates would have a significant impact, as lung cancer remained the most commonly diagnosed cancer (1.8 million cases a year, or 13% of total cancer diagnoses) and the deadliest, accounting for about one-fifth (1.6 million) of all cancer deaths worldwide.

     

    There is a silver lining to the report, some experts said: It may lend urgency to the fight against cancer. Countries such as the United States present examples of success stories stemming from legislation and financial resources devoted to cancer prevention.

     

    "The good news is, in (the United States), cancer mortality is trending downward, and that would be more true if you make an age adjustment," said Dr. Walter Curran, chairman of the Department of Radiation Oncology at Emory University's School of Medicine in Atlanta.

     

    "Since we have an aging population, the cancer rate increases, and if you adjust for the aging of America, the cancer rate is declining notably."

     

    Curran said a typical 20-year-old American who doesn't smoke, "who has a good diet and a healthy lifestyle, someone with moderate alcohol consumption and who takes preventive health measures like regularly seeing a doctor and getting exercise -- their chance of cancer is significantly less than someone who for example lives in a developing country in Africa right now."

     

    However, the United States is dealing with an obesity epidemic -- the rates of adults who are considered obese has doubled since the 1970s -- and drinking excessively is still the No.3 cause of lifestyle-related death.

     

    Smoking is still the leading cause of preventable death in the United States. However, when the U.S. Surgeon General linked tobacco to lung cancer 50 years ago, more than 40% of the adult population smoked; now it's about 19%.

     

    Public health initiatives have also made a difference in smoking rates. The report eventually spurred local governments to make it harder for a smoker to find a place to practice their habit. Many restaurants, bars, and even public parks ban smoking.

     

    National leadership gave state governments license to raise taxes on cigarettes so much that people quit because they could no longer afford their habit.

     

    Money from the federal tobacco lawsuit settlement went into smoking cessation programs and gave farmers incentives to grow crops other than tobacco. The FCC banned persuasive cigarette ads that may have encouraged young people to smoke.

     

    Smoking rates remain high in Asia and Africa. China -- where one-third of the world's cigarettes are smoked, according to the World Health Organization -- only recently moved to ban indoor public smoking.

     

    The report's authors suggested governments take similar legislative approaches to those they had taken against tobacco in attempting to reduce consumption of alcohol and sugary drinks, and in limiting exposure to occupational and environmental carcinogens, including air pollution.

     

    According to the report, the next two most common diagnoses were for breast (1.7 million, 11.9%) and large bowel cancer (1.4 million, 9.7%). Liver (800,000 or 9.1%) and stomach cancer (700,000 or 8.8%) were responsible for the most deaths after lung cancer.

     

    "The rise of cancer worldwide is a major obstacle to human development and well-being," said Wild, the International Agency for Research on Cancer director. "These new figures and projections send a strong signal that immediate action is needed to confront this human disaster, which touches every community worldwide."

     

    The report said the growing cancer burden would disproportionately hit developing countries -- which had the least resources to deal with the problem -- due to their populations growing, living longer and becoming increasingly susceptible to cancers associated with industrialized lifestyles.

     

    More than 60% of the world's cases and about 70% of the world's cancer deaths occurred in Africa, Asia, and Central and South America.

     

    "In the developing world, we are really at the beginning of understanding how serious the cancer problem is in these countries," said Emory School of Medicine's Curran.

     

    Cancers related to the HIV epidemic in developing countries and the spread of Hepatitis C are also on the rise, but so too is the general age of the population in developing counties. When you now have the potential to live long enough to see your grandchildren -- something that was not true even a decade ago in many developing countries -- your risk of having cancer is going to go up.

     

    "When life expectancy get better, cancer rates will go up and so will cancer fatalities," Curran said.

     

    Governments needed to appreciate that screening and early detection programs were "an investment rather than a cost," said Bernard Stewart, co-editor of the report -- and low-tech approaches had proven successful in some developing countries.

     

    The World Cancer Report, which is published about once every five years, involved a collaboration of around 250 scientists from more than 40 countries. Tuesday is World Cancer Day.

  • Pet Therapy during Cancer Treatment

    By a Dog

    Suleika Jaouad at home with her dog, Oscar.

    http://mobile.nytimes.com/blogs/well/2013/12/23/life-interrupted-by-a-dog/?emc=eta1&_r=0

    Anne FranceyShareBy SULEIKA JAOUAD

    December 23, 2013

    Ever since a therapy dog visited me in the hospital during my first cycle of chemotherapy in May 2011, I became fixated on the idea of having a dog of my own one day.

     pet therapy

    When you are talking to a dog about cancer, there are no judgments or taboos. The therapy dog, a small energetic King Charles Spaniel, jumped around on my hospital bed playfully tugging at the blanket on my lap. For the first time since I had fallen ill, I didn’t feel like I was being treated as if I were made of porcelain. The therapy dog made me feel like a human first, and a cancer patient second.

     

    During the first year of my cancer treatment, adopting a dog was out of the question. I spent more time in the hospital than out. And in the time I was able to spend at home, I had to live in a germ-free bubble to protect my fragile immune system. As a substitute for a real dog, my mom found “Sleepy,” my childhood stuffed dog in the attic. As embarrassing as it was for me to be toting a stuffed animal at age 22, Sleepy was the next best thing to a real puppy. He made me feel like a kid again, safe and innocent to the cruelties of the world.

     

    Six months after my bone marrow transplant, I finally got the green light from my doctors to get a real puppy. I promised my parents that I would take numerous precautions to protect my health. The dog would wear disposable booties on walks, to keep his paws as germ-free as possible. I promised to wear gloves when walking and feeding him, vowed that he would never sleep in my bed and lined up four friends to help take care of him when I lacked the energy.

     

    I spent months trolling animal adoption websites for the perfect furry companion but as soon as I saw Oscar, I knew I had to bring all four, wiggling pounds of him home with me. With his soft white fur, tiny heart-shaped nose, and hazel eyes, it was love at first sight.

     

    But within 72 hours of living with Oscar, I began to wonder if I had made a huge mistake. I had meticulously geared up for his arrival (teething toys, a crate, and an armload of cleaning products and stain removers: check, check, and check). But nothing could have prepared me for the task of sprinting outside of my apartment building at the crack of dawn with a peeing 8-week-old schnauzer-poodle mix. After a bone-marrow transplant and two and a half years of ongoing chemotherapy, my muscles were weak and my energy nonexistent.

     

    Walking Oscar quickly became the most dreaded part of my day. After a few blocks, he was warmed up and ready for a run in the park. I, on the other hand, couldn’t wait to crawl back into bed.

     

    When my boyfriend Seamus is home from work, he shares the responsibilities of taking care of Oscar. But during the day, it’s just me and the dog.

     

    Oscar, unlike my caregivers, doesn’t care that I’m tired, feeling nauseous after my chemotherapy treatments. Every morning between 6 and 7, Oscar scoots over to my side of the bed and begins the process of baptizing me with his tongue until I wake up.

     

    Caring for Oscar is not always easy, but trying to keep up with him has been some of the best medicine I’ve received since my cancer diagnosis. Oscar and I have even shared similar experiences, and together, we’ve slowly matured and grown more disciplined. He no longer pees on the Oriental rug in my living room, and I have stopped sleeping in until noon. Oscar just finished getting his booster shots, and I will soon be getting all of my childhood vaccinations for the second time (a patient’s immunizations are lost during a bone marrow transplant).

     

    Walking up and down stairs used to be a challenge for us. I felt weak and unstable on my feet after spending so much time on bed rest. And Oscar’s short, stubby legs meant that more often than not, he would end up tumbling rather than walking down the stairs. Now, we bound up and down the stairs with ease, taking them two by two.

     

    I’ve found that I do some of my best thinking during our early morning walks — those few hours after the garbage trucks have gone and before the coffee shops open when Manhattan is as asleep as it ever will be. For that one hour each morning, I’m focused on the now.

     

    Because of Oscar, I have discovered the Tompkins Square Park dog run where we‘ve made lots of new friends. There’s Mochi, the terrier mix who likes to wrestle in the sand with Oscar. And Thelma and Louise, the shy brother and sister beagle duo who prefer to watch the other dogs play from a distance. I get my morning comic relief from watching Max, a giant hound, whose favorite extracurricular activity is attacking the fur trim on women’s winter coats.

     

    As for the dog precautions that I promised my parents, we have tried to stick to most of them. I wash my hands regularly, and as my immune system has grown stronger, we’ve graduated to wiping down Oscar’s paws each time he enters the apartment. It won’t surprise any dog owner that Oscar has wriggled his way into the bed, but at least he sleeps at the foot of it.

     

    Although I was the one who rescued Oscar from an animal shelter, it has become clear that he’s done most of the rescuing in our relationship. We’re still working on “heel” and other basic commands. When we leave my apartment, Oscar bounds ahead of me, tugging at his leash as he guides me toward the dog park. For the first time in a very long time, it’s not the cancer that leads. It’s Oscar.

    Study Shows Importance of Specialty Skincare to

    Improve Quality of Life for Cancer Patients

     

    Those battling cancer can use all the help they can get to improve their quality of life during and after treatment. A recent study indicates that being informed of potential skin side effects and taking action to alleviate symptoms can help individuals cope and dramatically improve their daily lives. Every cancer patient should be at the ready with must-have products stocked in his or her medicine cabinet.

     

    “Advance knowledge of side effects and proactive management approaches have been shown to decrease anxiety, improve adherence to cancer treatment, and improve quality of life,” said Dr. Mario Lacouture of Northwestern University (now at Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center).

    Dr. Mario Lacouture, MD Dr. Mario Lacouture, MD

    While certain side effects associated with cancer treatments, including lethargy, nausea and hair loss, are well known, one may be surprised to learn that chemotherapy and radiation therapies can also affect the skin and nails. Redness, rashes, itching, peeling, dryness, and increased sensitivity to the sun may occur.

     

    Dr. Lacouture headed a study examining skincare products specifically designed to address the skin-related side effects of cancer treatment. His findings showed that these products greatly improved skin-related quality of life, improved overall appearance, and were more soothing and gentle than other regimens previously used. One of the brands included in the study was Lindi Skin.

     

    Individuals who are in the throes of cancer treatment may already feel self-conscious about their appearance and apprehensive about the future. Lindy Snider, a pioneer in the development of products specific for cancer patients, created Lindi Skin with cancer patients in mind.

     

    This extensive collection of mild and luxurious serums, lotions and balms is the only full line of skincare products created for those suffering the skin side effects of specific cancer therapies. Snider consulted with leading dermatologists and oncologists to find the right skincare therapy for sensitive skin.

     

    The result is an exclusive blend of botanical ingredients. These include willow herb, lavender, red raspberry, pine bark, tomato, cranberry, and echinacea to refresh, renew and rejuvenate compromised skin.

     

    Terri from Franklin Square, NY says about Lindi Skin, “I love, love, love all your products! They helped me get through two years of assorted chemo and radiation treatments looking the best that I possibly could and feeling positively pampered. I will continue to use all my Lindi goodies because I never mess with a good thing!”
