Cancer Research UK Predicts 50 Percent of Men Will Develop Cancer

Kevin Anderson - Wednesday, December 19, 2012

New figures released by Cancer Research UK show that by 2027 50 out of 100 men will develop some form of cancer at some point during their lives, in the United Kingdom. This is compared to 44 out of 100 in 2010. Women also saw an increase from 40 to 44 out of 100 in the same time period. One of the causes for this could be that people will live longer over the next 15 years, meaning that they would have an increased risk of developing cancer. The cancers that are set to increase the most in the next 15 years are prostate, bowel, and melanoma cancer. While the risk of developing cancer is increasing, the rate at which people are surviving cancer is as well. With new techniques to detect the disease and new treatments, survival has doubled in the last 40 years. For more information, please visit Cancer Research UK's website by clicking here.

Consumption of Milk Said to Protect From Colon Cancer Progression

Kevin Anderson - Tuesday, October 16, 2012

Researchers from the University of Lund (Sweden), have reported in the official journal of the American Dairy Science Association, Journal of Dairy Science, that drinking milk can protect from colon cancer progression. Milk had been previously known to reduce the risk of diabetes and metabolic syndrome, and even positively impact your brain and mental performance. The researchers found that Lactoferricin4-14, a protein found in milk, considerably reduced the growth rate of colon cancer cells over the long term.

Exercise Benefits Cancer Survivors

Kevin Anderson - Tuesday, August 09, 2011
In a new report released by MacMillan, a United Kingdom cancer charity, exercise can greatly benefit cancer survivors. Breast cancer patients' risk of recurrence and dying from the disease can be reduced by 40%, bowel cancer patients' by up to 50%, and prostate cancer patients' by up to 30%.
