Tumours shrunk 'dramatically' in 11 days - BBC News
The drugs were lapatinib and trastuzumab, which is more widely known as Herceptin. They both target HER2 - a protein that fuels the growth of some women's breast cancers. Herceptin works on the surface of cancerous cells while lapatinib is able to penetrate inside the cell to disable HER2. The study, which also took place at NHS hospitals in Manchester, gave the treatment to women with tumours measuring between 1 and 3cm. In less than two weeks of treatment, the cancer disappeared entirely in 11% of cases, and in a further 17% they were smaller than 5mm. //&! angiogenesis STUPID! - diet - http://nutritionfacts.org/?s=angiogenesis &! https://www.ted.com/talks/william_li?language=en &! http://blog.ted.com/dr_william_lis/ --- It's too much of a ask by meat eating cancer doctors to ask cancer patients to adhere to a Whole-Food Plant-Based diet w some physical activity.

Zika and Ebola: A taste of things to come? - BBC News
Both diseases have been known about for decades, and yet in both cases no vaccines or drugs were available when we most needed them. So what's going on? Is this just a terrible coincidence, being caught off-guard like this twice in such quick succession, or is it part of a worrying trend and a taste of things to come? At first glance it wouldn't appear that the two diseases have much in common. One is difficult to catch but a ferocious killer, while the other spreads with ease but is relatively harmless to the vast majority of people infected. Yet, in both cases there is something novel, either in the way the virus has spread or in how it affected people which has made the outbreaks more of a threat. In global health security terms that is a real concern, because such sudden changes of modus operandi can not only make public health threats even more difficult to predict or anticipate than normal, but also make all the difference between a localised outbreak and global pandemic.

UK cancer death rates after diagnosis drop 10% in ten years | Society | The Guardian
A greater number of people, however, are being diagnosed with and dying from cancer due to age and lifestyle factors [...] But the growing numbers of people being diagnosed with cancer as the population ages and obesity, a sedentary lifestyle, smoking and drinking take their toll, has climbed, which means the actual number of deaths each year has risen over the last decade. Some cancers continue to pose a major problem: the death rates from liver and pancreatic cancer are rising, not falling. [...] regional variations are sometimes shocking. In some areas, people diagnosed with lung cancer are four times more likely to die than in others. That is partly because in some less affluent places, lung cancer caused by smoking is more common and people have more advanced disease when they finally see the GP. But there are also variations in standards of care. [...] [ look at ] Five-year cancer survival rates, % [ if you survive, you are lucky for 5 years. ]

Being Trans and the Paradox of Sport — Medium
Just yesterday the International Olympic Committee announced new rules for transgender athletes, an update which ends their Gender Confirmation Surgery (GCS) requirement. This is a huge step forward for trans people everywhere, simply because many of us choose not to have surgery in the first place because of lack of need or funds to pay for it. Whether to have expensive and invasive GCS or not should be a matter of individual need, not whether or not an athlete can continue his or her athletic career. It’s easy to forget sometimes that GCS is permanent sterilization. For me, my involvement in sport was both life-saving and a paradox for myself. - outsports.com/2016/1/21/10812404/transgender-ioc-policy-new-olympics

Enzyme that 'stops sugar being stored as fat' is identified by scientists : science
An addicts way of life. Take something to combat the addiction. Like the main character in Mr. Robot. Even if, you still stab your pancreas every time with processed and engineered food. Meaning you will end up as normal weight type 2 diabetic. And still have elevated inflammatory markers with less fat covering your organs. Meaning higher risk for cancer. Oh, and it doesn't help with colon and rectal cancer either. To reduce that type of risk you would have to eat a Whole-Food Plant-Based Diet (see nutritionfacts.org) All those research grants because the medical profession doesn't trust people to change their diet and lifestyle for the better, before they are even obese.

Why are women with brain tumours being dismissed as attention-seekers? | Society | The Guardian
Accepting this gender-uniform model of disease has repercussions. One study drew data from 35,875 cardiac patients, 41% of them women, across nearly 400 US hospitals. It found that women faced a higher risk of dying in hospital, subsequent heart attacks, heart failure, and stroke. They were less likely to have an ECG within 10 minutes and to receive crucial medications. And women younger than 65 years old are more than twice as likely to die from a heart attack than men of the same age. [...] There is more complexity to this than mere gender bias. Women tend to present to hospital later and with atypical symptoms. Being a smoker and having diabetes seems to confer more cardiac risk for women than men. [...] It’s not just cardiac issues that are underdiagnosed in women. For every girl diagnosed with autism, four boys are diagnosed with the same condition.

'Grief and anxiety are not mental illnesses' - BBC News
Psychiatric diagnoses are not only scientifically invalid, they are harmful too. The language of illness implies that the roots of such emotional distress lie in abnormalities in our brain and biology, usually known as "chemical imbalances". This leads us to be blind to the social and psychological causes of distress. More importantly, we tend to prescribe medical solutions - anti-depressants and anti-psychotic medication - despite significant side-effects and poor evidence of their effectiveness. This is wrong. We should not be diagnosing many more people with meaningless "mental illnesses", telling them these stem from brain abnormalities, and prescribing medication.

Bacteria that resist 'last antibiotic' found in UK - BBC News
[ over 80% of antibiotic use - livestock farming. also use of colistin. self-regulated. ] Bacteria that resist the most common antibiotic of last resort - colistin - have been discovered in the UK. Officials say the threat to human health is low, but is under ongoing review. Scientists warned the world was on the cusp of a post-antibiotic era when such resistance was discovered in China last month. Now checks have discovered the same resistance on three farms and in samples of human infections. [...] Colistin-resistance was discovered in fifteen of them, including samples of Salmonella and E. Coli. [...] The DNA that gives bacteria resistance to colistin - the mcr-1 gene - can spread rapidly between species. The concern is that colistin-resistance will now find its way into other superbugs to create infections that doctors cannot treat. //&! youtu.be/M2xZBngTIas //&! bit.ly/1O5oHWa //&! bit.ly/1MW3FYW //&! bbc.in/1PkB6G9 //&! 50-50 chance to salvage situation - bit.ly/1Zmx8Qg

Patients less satisfied by GPs who refuse antibiotics - BBC News
[ quick fix society. rather pop a pill than not eat bacon for breakfast. show how much GP's have to change set-up and be incentivised 2 help people change. ] The study, published in the British Journal of General Practice, compared the prescribing rates of more than 95% of all GP surgeries in England to a survey of patient satisfaction. Those satisfaction scores are used to determine how much GPs get paid. Patients' satisfaction rose when they were listened to or carefully examined. A study last year warned that up to half of all prescriptions of antibiotics could be inappropriate - given to patients suffering coughs, colds, sore throats and the flu - none of which can be treated with antibiotics. The overuse of antibiotics has led to antibiotic resistance, when bacteria and infections can no longer be killed off or treated with strong drugs. In this study, doctors who prescribed 25% fewer antibiotics saw a modest reduction in patient satisfaction with them or with their surgery.

Gesundheit in Deutschland: Bericht Robert Koch-Institut - SPIEGEL ONLINE
Wir werden immer älter und sterben seltener an Herz-Kreislauf-Erkrankungen. Zu diesem Ergebnis kommt ein Bericht zur Gesundheit der Deutschen. Sorgen machen Experten zu niedrige Impfquoten, resistente Keime und Diabetes. [...] Zudem sterben die Menschen hierzulande seltener an Erkrankungen des Herzens, etwa Herzinfarkten, und Schlaganfällen als noch vor 20 Jahren. Verantwortlich dafür macht das RKI Fortschritte in der Therapie und eine bessere medizinische Versorgung und Vorsorge. Trotzdem bleiben Herz-Kreislauf-Erkrankungen mit einem Anteil von knapp 40 Prozent die häufigste Todesursache. Krebserkrankungen stehen an zweiter Stelle. Sie sind laut Bericht für einen Viertel (25 Prozent) der Todesfälle in Deutschland verantwortlich. Während insgesamt mehr Menschen an Krebs erkranken (weil es mehr ältere gibt), sinkt die Sterblichkeitsrate bei den meisten Krebsarten. Das RKI führt das auf bessere Therapien und Fortschritte bei der Früherkennung zurück.

Researchers said they could not identify the cause of the higher risks. They looked at staffing levels in terms of which hospitals were compliant with the guidelines for consultant cover, and found little difference between those that were and those that were not. But they said much more data was needed on staffing before it could be ruled out.

Antibiotic resistance: World on cusp of 'post-antibiotic era' - BBC News
People will die, warns antibiotic expert - bbc.in/1STI2so - The world is on the cusp of a "post-antibiotic era", scientists have warned after finding bacteria resistant to drugs used when all other treatments have failed. They identified bacteria able to shrug off the drug of last resort - colistin - in patients and livestock in China. They said that resistance would spread around the world and raised the spectre of untreatable infections. It is likely resistance emerged after colistin was overused in farm animals. Bacteria becoming completely resistant to treatment - also known as the antibiotic apocalypse - could plunge medicine back into the dark ages. &! bit.ly/1kPkevq - In China wurden Darmbakterien entdeckt, gegen die selbst hochwirksame Antibiotika nicht helfen.

Blood test could determine prostate cancer therapy - BBC News
[ public perception doesn't exist, about the horrors of cancer, chemo and radiotherapy, and invasive surgery that makes you incontinent and have no sex life anymore ] A blood test can determine whether prostate cancer patients are likely to respond to drugs, scientists say. Tests on 97 men, described in Science Translational Medicine, were able to tell whether tumours were already resistant to the drug abiraterone. [...] Abiraterone is a potent drug able to shrink tumours, but only some men benefit. [...] Cancers can evolve resistance to drugs over time, so the team of scientists set about looking for evidence in the fragments of tumour DNA that float in the blood stream.

Prostate cancer drug ruling a 'fiasco', says charity - BBC News
[ end of life management. after extensive surgery failed, chemo failed, you are a broken man who needs adult pampers because of incontinence and wait for your last meal managing the spread of cancer with morphine. nobody talks about those extremes. something like this should get onto the packaging of bacon. ] A charity says a decision by the NHS in England to reject a drug for men with prostate cancer is a "fiasco". Abiraterone is already given to patients at the end-of-life after chemotherapy as it gives patients an extra few months. But the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence said it was not cost-effective to offer it earlier. It said while the drug improved quality of life, it was unclear whether it had the same impact on life expectancy. This was due to problems with the research data, NICE said, claiming the trial was finished early - something disputed by the drug's makers Janssen.

Tom Hanks, talks about a surprising part of his family’s crisis that left him angry. “There’s a predatory philosophy that happens where people find out that you have a certain illness, particularly cancer, and they will try and make money off of you, pushing procedures that might have a degree of science to them and there are others that are absolute quacks just trying to make money," [...] In April of this year, Wilson announced that she was taking a leave of absence from Fish in the Dark after she underwent a double mastectomy. At the time, Wilson said she was going public to encourage women to be vigilant about their health: "I share this to educate others that a second opinion is critical to your health,” Wilson, who was initially mis-diagnosed, said. “You have nothing to lose if both opinions match up for the good, and everything to gain if something that was missed is found, which does happen. Early diagnosis is key.”

Why Cancer Research Has Stalled - T. Colin Campbell
But such conclusions fail to explain changes in the rates of cancer over time, or the wide variation in cancer prevalence between different human populations. They are flawed for a very fundamental reason: they assume that most types of cancer are caused by DNA mutations. This is the mutation theory of cancer. It serves as a fundamental explanation of cancer development and thus is a central focus of cancer research and clinical practice. [...] I disagree with this theory. I suggest that failing to question the mutation theory of cancer is the underlying scientific reason the War on Cancer is not being won. A nutritional theory of cancer ....

Chancellor urged not to cut vital health fund - BBC News
George "Mr Judgement Call" Osborne // Vital health services in England including stop smoking, obesity and sexual health clinics are at risk, experts are warning. Earlier this year the Chancellor unveiled plans to cut the £2.8bn public health budget by £200m from January. The pot is held by councils so is not covered by the government's promise to protect the health service. But doctors, nurses and other senior health officials say the money is vital to relieving pressure on the wider NHS. A total of 11 groups, including the Academy of Medical Royal Colleges, Royal College of Nursing, NHS Confederation and Faculty of Public Health, have put their names to a letter to George Osborne asking him to reconsider the plans. The letter warned raiding the funds would simply cause greater ill-health and inequality in the population. [...] [PREVENTION>>] [deal with Osborne for 8bn extra a year this Parliament] included making gains from improvements in people's health. [Cut now, pay more later!]

How schizophrenia changed the whole course of my life - BBC News
[ Cinderella Service ] The medications helped almost straight away but what I really wanted to do was talk to somebody in therapy sessions. At the time there was a lack of funding for this type of treatment, something which continues to be a problem for people with mental illnesses today. With the medication, I began to make little steps towards recovery. I started talking a bit, and being able to wash and take basic care of myself. Anybody who says that a mental illness isn't disabling is wrong, it affected my whole body. Unfortunately, the medication took a toll on my physical health and by the end of the following year I had gained around ten stone (63.5kg) in weight due to the side effects. [...] It has taken me 20 years to get this far in recovery, and I do still have setbacks. [...] If we can challenge the stigma, get proper investment in mental health services, [...] then people will not be left as long as I was before they are able to make their own steps toward recovery.

NHS spending 'to fall as share of GDP by 2020' - BBC News
Tories 2 preside over the largest sustained fall in NHS spending as a share of GDP since 1951, an analysis by the King's Fund says. [POSITIONING & FRAMING! Just change the way of measurement/comparison. Did the same w child poverty. & Polarize saying NHS is inefficient (wasting money) when in reality NHS is one of the most efficient health care system in western world!] >> The Conservatives have promised to raise spending on the NHS above inflation at the last two elections & have kept the promise. They have pledged an additional £2bn this year & an extra £8bn before the election. But the share of the economy devoted to health is set to shrink by between 0.7 & 1 percentage point between 2009/2020, taking the figure back to the level last seen in 2008. [...] Simon Stevens is the head of NHS England and has published a five-year plan for the service which included £22bn in efficiency savings and different ways of working, keeping people out of hospital where possible.

NHS starts 'stem cell factory' for diabetes - BBC News
NHS Blood and Transplant wants to make and give the experimental therapy to patients at high risk of developing diabetes-related kidney problems. It is hoped the injections will slow down or stop tissue damage, removing the need for dialysis or transplants. Diabetes is the most common cause of end stage kidney disease, which kills around 40,000 people a year in the UK. The 48 patients taking part in the study will be treated at University Hospitals Birmingham NHS Foundation Trust and Belfast Health and Social Care Trust or at another trial site in Italy. The injection of cells they will receive are called stromal cells and they are grown from donated human bone marrow. These immature cells can grow and change into a variety of tissue - bone, cartilage and fat. But it is their ability to release proteins that reduce inflammation in the kidney which interests the researchers. In animal studies [shown] measurable improvements in kidney function[.] [NO CURE! Just Management.]

Should we treat mental illness the same as physical illness?
I have grown uneasy with the pressure to validate mental illness by analogy with the physical. In a truly compassionate society this would not be necessary. We risk turning suffering into an identity, a foregone conclusion, a test of whether one really, really deserves to get help. We risk asking those suffering to conform to a fantasy version of their disorder, in which happiness is weakness and recovery a sham. I understand why we do it, but we risk making mentally ill people feel they have something to prove. They don’t.

Be bold on sugar tax, Jamie Oliver says - BBC News
"Governments over the past 30 years have done an incredible disservice to children" [] If people are well informed (unbiased), majority makes good choices. [] addresses that mandatory processed food labeling doesnt go far enough [] tax isnt radical, its very basic! //&! [A] tax would be the "single most important" change that could be made [] "deeply symbolic" as well as raising money. [] 20% sugar tax could raise up to a £1bn a year [] could be shared between the NHS & primary schools. [] [ GOV RESPONSE: ] "The causes of obesity are complex, caused by a number of dietary, lifestyle, environmental and genetic factors, and tackling it will require a comprehensive and broad approach. "As such, the government is considering a range of options for tackling childhood obesity." [ sticking to message and positioning by food industry!
