Gut bacteria 'boost' cancer therapy - BBC News
Two studies, in the journal Science, linked specific species and the overall diversity of the microbiome to the effectiveness of immunotherapy drugs. [...] Those that responded to therapy tended to have a richer, more diverse microbiome than those that did not.

Acid reflux drug linked to more than doubled risk of stomach cancer – study | Science | The Guardian
[instead of changing diet - you give pills ] The study concluded no firm cause and effect could be drawn, but doctors should “exercise caution when prescribing long-term PPIs … even after successful eradication of H plyori”.

Responding to the study, Stephen Evans, professor of pharmacoepidemiology at the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine, said: “Many observational studies have found adverse effects associated with PPIs.

“The most plausible explanation for the totality of evidence on this is that those who are given PPIs, and especially those who continue on them long-term, tend to be sicker in a variety of ways than those for whom they are not prescribed.”

Krebs: So lässt sich das Risiko verringern - SPIEGEL ONLINE
Vor Krebs fürchten sich die Deutschen wie vor keiner anderen Krankheit. Mit dem richtigen Lebensstil lässt sich das Erkrankungsrisiko deutlich verringern - leider aber ohne Garantie. Rocklegende David Bowie, Motörhead-Sänger Lemmy Kilmister oder "Harry-Potter"-Star Alan Rickman: Sie alle sind kürzlich an Krebs gestorben. Auch in Deutschland sind bösartige Tumore die zweithäufigste Todesursache, nur an den Folgen von Herz-Kreislauf-Erkrankungen sterben noch mehr Menschen. Die Erkrankungszahlen liegen noch deutlich höher. Im Laufe des Lebens erhalten jeder zweite Mann und fast jede zweite Frau die gefürchtete Diagnose, rund 500.000 sind es jährlich. [...] "Man kann jedes Fleisch bedenkenlos essen. Es kommt aber auf die Menge an", sagt Heiner Boeing vom Deutschen Institut für Ernährungsforschung Potsdam-Rehbrücke.

I had alcohol-related breast cancer. Here’s why I still drink | Joanna Moorhead | Opinion | The Guardian
The chief medical officer advises women to think about cancer when having a drink. But if I did that every time I had a glass of wine, I think I’d feel the cancer had won [...] I guess what it comes down to is quite simply the importance of enjoying life. When I had cancer, I discovered that I didn’t just want to survive; I wanted to have fun, to make the most of every single day, and to enjoy happy occasions and meals with my friends and family. [...] drinking wine, beer or tequila adds a dimension to social occasions that I rather enjoy. And somehow it feels to me that it wasn’t worth surviving cancer if I’m going to limit my life to thinking, every time someone offered me a glass of something, about my breast cancer and the likelihood of it returning. [...] Life is too short to cut out something you enjoy in moderation, [ picking up the words from the food lobby, heart disease and cancer in moderation. sprinkling in doubt. to continue that lifestyle. do you say asbestos in mod? ]

Government has no idea about Cancer Drugs Fund's impact, MPs say | Society | The Guardian
Department of Health and NHS England have insufficient data on patient outcomes or value for money, and little control over its spiralling budget, committee says [...] “The Department of Health and NHS England do not have the data needed to assess the impact of the fund on patient outcomes, such as extending patients’ lives, or to demonstrate whether this is a good use of taxpayers’ money.” The fund was set up in 2010 by the Conservative government because of the regular outcry from patient organisations and the media when cancer drugs, which typically offer potential weeks or months of extra life to those with a terminal diagnosis, were turned down by Nice, the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence.

More maternity units closing doors, union warns - BBC News
The Royal College of Midwives (RCM) said a shortage of midwives was having a major impact and mistakes would "almost certainly be made". Some 42% of units shut down temporarily in the past year, its survey found. The government said it was determined to ensure "every mother and baby gets the highest quality care". A poll of 83 heads of midwifery at NHS trusts found there had been a rise in the number of units that had closed their doors, with 33% having closed the previous year. The RCM said budget cuts were also affecting services, with midwives struggling to cope with a rising birth rate and increasingly complex births. [...] But he added that rising numbers of complex pregnancies were also putting pressure on other UK countries. [...] The RCM says there is a shortage of 2,600 full-time midwives.

Cancer virus discovery helped by delayed flight - BBC News
Epstein Barr virus // Wikipedia - It is best known as the cause of infectious mononucleosis (glandular fever). It is also associated with particular forms of cancer, such as Hodgkin's lymphoma, Burkitt's lymphoma, gastric cancer, nasopharyngeal carcinoma, and conditions associated with human immunodeficiency virus (HIV), such as hairy leukoplakia and central nervous system lymphomas. There is evidence that infection with EBV is associated with a higher risk of certain autoimmune diseases, especially dermatomyositis, systemic lupus erythematosus, rheumatoid arthritis, Sjögren's syndrome, and multiple sclerosis.

And at rate of western average drinking pattern, this is constant inflammation response to a immune system on constant attack. Include meat which too creates a 'leaky gut.' The generalness of alcohol as carcinogen as well as the meat (animal products). Smoking. Second-hand smoke. Less sleep quality. Add Tanning. ...

The Cure for Brain Diseases Is in Your Gut - The Daily Beast
Dr. Christopher B. Forsyth and his team have recently demonstrated significant gut permeability, more commonly referred to as “leaky gut” in Parkinson’s patients. Their research has further revealed that this increase in gut leakiness enhances inflammation as well as the production of a unique protein—alpha-synuclein—both of which are characteristic of this disease. [...] In research headed by Dr. Rongzhen Zhang at the University of California, San Francisco, he and his team discovered that, like the Parkinson’s research had revealed, in ALS there is also an increase in the leakiness of the gut. And again, like in Parkinson’s, their research revealed that this mechanism caused a robust increase in inflammation, a mechanism that has long been known to be associated with ALS. [...] Inflammation, as a mechanism, is thought to underlie virtually every degenerative condition that humans experience—including Alzheimer’s disease, coronary artery disease, diabetes, and even cancer.

Dr. Garth Davis - Meat alters microbiome (gut flora) disadvantageous to your health.
Dr. Lawrence David did a fascinating study showing that you could dramatically and quickly alter your gut biome when you eat meat, and meat can specifically create inflammatory bacteria. [...] Dr. McCarty looked at the role of excess essential amino acids has on affecting health and was amazed to find, as I was, the negative effects of excessive protein in the diet. He found that excess protein coming mainly from animals, caused obesity, heart disease, and cancer. In the discussion of the article he states, that the data was so overwhelming he changed to a vegan diet. He concludes with, “ I suspect the single injunction, ‘ do not eat animal products has the the potential to do more for world health than all of the abstruse wisdom in all of the worlds medical libraries”. I certainly agree with him.

A single meal of meats, eggs, and dairy can cause a spike of inflammation within hours that can stiffen one's arteries. Originally this was thought to be the result of saturated animal fat causing our gut lining to leak bacterial toxins into our blood stream leading to endotoxemia.
