Cancer to kill 10 mn in 2018 despite better prevention

Paris: Cancer will kill nearly 10 million people this year, experts said Wednesday, warning the disease's global burden continues to rise in spite of better prevention and earlier diagnosis. An estimated 18.1 million new cancer cases were predicted worldwide for 2018 -- with 9.6 million deaths, said a report of the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC). This is up from estimated 14.1 million new cancer cases and 8.2 million deaths reported in the agency's last assessment just six years ago. The toll is rising as populations expand and grow older, and people in developing nations adopt unhealthy, high-risk...

Study: HPV Shot Even Helps Women Who Didn't Get It

By Amy Norton HealthDay Reporter TUESDAY, Jan. 22, 2019 (HealthDay News) -- The vaccine against human papillomavirus (HPV) is highly effective in young women -- and may even offer some protection to those who don't get it, a new study suggests. Researchers said the findings add to evidence that the vaccine -- which ultimately cuts the risk of several cancers -- is a boon to public health. HPV is a sexually transmitted infection that can cause genital warts. In some people, HPV infection becomes persistent, and that can eventually leads to cervical cancer, or tumors of the vagina, penis, anus...

Blood Test Might Show Early Warning of Alzheimer's

By Robert Preidt HealthDay Reporter TUESDAY, Jan. 22, 2019 (HealthDay News) -- Leaky blood vessels in the brain may be an early sign of Alzheimer's disease, researchers say. They followed 161 older adults for five years and found that those with the most severe memory declines had the greatest leakage in their brain's blood vessels, regardless of whether the Alzheimer's-related proteins amyloid and tau were present. The findings could help with earlier diagnosis of Alzheimer's and suggest a new drug target for slowing down or preventing the disease, according to the researchers from the University of Southern California. "The fact...

Body Size May Influence Lifespan in Women, Not Men

By Steven Reinberg HealthDay Reporter TUESDAY, Jan. 22, 2019 (HealthDay News) -- Here's a new study finding that's bound to make tall, thin women happy: Their body size and their gender make it more likely they will reach the milestone age of 90 than either men or shorter, heavier women. If these women exercised an hour a day, the longevity benefits were even greater, the Dutch scientists reported. While exercise helped men live longer, their body size did not. The increase in life expectancy has started to plateau in some developed countries, said lead researcher Lloyd Brandts, from the department...

How to protect yourself in dangerous, freezing weather

The freezing weather slamming three-quarters of the country is posing serious health risks. The frigid temperatures can lead to hypothermia, compromise lung function, and trigger confusion or other neurological effects.The elderly and infants are more vulnerable to hypothermia, according to CBS News' Dr. Tara Narula. She warned it's important to be aware of the symptoms "because they say the cold makes you dumb." "It really can affect your mental thinking, it can make you sluggish, it can affect your judgment, your coordination. So you may not realize that you're that cold," Narula said Tuesday on "CBS This Morning." You're at...

'Reprogramming' immune cells to attack cancer tumors

Cancer cells can be treacherous targets for both therapeutic agents and the body's natural defense line — the immune system. But a new approach to "rewiring" macrophages, the body's pathogen and debris eaters, could offer a fresh boost to cancer immunotherapy. Researchers are developing a strategy to 'arm' the immune system's 'debris eaters' against cancer. Immunotherapy is a type of treatment that focuses on boosting the body's own immune response against cancer tumors. This type of therapy has become more popular over the past few years, and researchers have made it a priority to understand better how cancer cells and...
