There is no convincing evidence that the use of mobile phones damages human health, a "comprehensive" review of scientific evidence said on Thursday.
Studies have not demonstrated that the use of mobiles causes brain tumours or any other cancer, according to the review by the Health Protection Agency (HPA)'s independent advisory group on non-ionising radiation.
But it said it was important to monitor evidence as the use of mobile phones has … full story
A new study suggests people who had certain kinds of dental X-rays in the past may be at an increased risk for meningioma, the most commonly diagnosed brain tumor in the US.
The findings cannot prove that radiation from the imaging caused the tumors, and the results are based on people who were likely exposed to higher levels of radiation during dental X-rays than most are today.
"It's likely that the exposure association we're seeing here … full story
Aspirin and other household drugs may inhibit the spread of cancer because they help shut down the chemical "highways" which feed tumours, Australian researchers said Tuesday.
Scientists at Melbourne's Peter MacCallum Cancer Centre said they have made a biological breakthrough helping explain how lymphatic vessels - key to the transmission of tumours throughout the body - respond to cancer.
"We've shown that molecules like the aspirin could effectively … full story
People recently diagnosed with lung cancer are at higher risk of having a stroke than those without lung tumors, suggests a large new study from Taiwan.
Researchers looking at data covering more than 150,000 adults found that among those with lung cancer, 26 in every 1000 experienced a stroke each year, compared with 17 in 1000 who did not have cancer.
"This is one more telling sign of the long term risk of smoking," said Dr. Andrew Russman, a … full story
Scientists have identified a protein that halts growth of prostate cancer cells and even drives them to commit ’suicide’.
A drug that boosts levels of the protein, called FUS, could stop the disease from spreading, saving many of the thousands of lives claimed by the disease every year.
The breakthrough at Imperial College London, could also help doctors more accurately distinguish the more common, slower-growing forms of prostate cancer from the … full story
AHCC (activated hexose correlate compound) is an extract of an hybridization of several medical mushrooms, each of which has a long history of medicinal use in Japan. However, AHCC action is so much more powerful than the mushrooms from which it comes, that studies show it has been effective against liver cancer, prostate cancer, ovarian cancer, multiple myeloma, breast cancer, and AIDS.

Around 2,000 new mesothelioma cases are diagnosed in the US on a yearly basis. Once the patient of mesothelioma is diagnosed, a health care provider will discuss prognosis and will give a result of the impact of cancer on your body. To get rid of poor prognosis, early detection is an absolute must. Recent study has come to the conclusion that mesothelioma symptoms may not make its presence felt until 15 to 30 years after asbestos exposure.

URINARY TRACT INFECTIONS IN CHILDREN
Last week, I went to see a friend and her ten month old son whom I had seen last at the hospital at the time of his birth. I was surprised to see what I found there. I could not relate that little one to the healthy newborn I had seen earlier. He looked like an undernourished, totally withdrawn child who did not even seem to be doing the normal things that a child of his age would be expected to do like walking … full story
