Seven Breast Cancer Research Success Stories

For American women, breast cancer is one of the most common cancers, with 1 in 8 developing it in their lifetime. However, largely due to research discoveries, breast cancer in women declined in the early 2000s – after increasing for years. In addition, more women who...

Public Interest Groups Call for Release of Suppressed U.S. Study on PFAS Chemicals

In a letter to the Department of Health and Human Services secretary, the groups wrote that the family of bioaccumulative and persistent chemicals known as PFAS “are potent toxicants linked to cancer, liver and thyroid damage, developmental impacts, and numerous other adverse health effects, including harming our immune systems. The government should be sharing information about these dangers, not hiding it.”

Miracle Cure Saves Woman with Breast Cancer

A woman has been completely cured of her breast cancer after doctors tweaked her immune system, enabling it to destroy the tumors that had spread throughout her body. This treatment, which succeeded after all conventional treatments failed, marks the first successful application of T-cell immunotherapy for late-stage breast cancer.

Same cancer, worse results and twice the cost in the US

Americans paid twice as much as Canadians for health care, but they didn’t get twice the benefit, according to a new study. The patients had similar diagnoses, levels of education, financial situations and other demographics that commonly affect health outcomes and mortality. Some of their ages were different, but the biggest difference between them is on which side of the border they live.

More Women Can Skip Chemo

Our video outlines the initial results from the TAILORx clinical trial. Its results show that more women can avoid chemotherapy for their breast cancer in the future when they have an Oncotype DX genomic test.

Toxins in shopping receipts

Did you know store receipts are a major contributor to your body’s intake of the hormone-disrupting chemicals BPS and BPA? These chemicals are quickly and efficiently absorbed into the bloodstream through your skin.

Updates on Proposed Rules for GMO Labeling and Toxicity of Common Pesticides 

Government researchers warn the Roundup formula is far more toxic than glyphosate in isolation due to synergistic interactions between various chemicals, which “significantly altered” the viability of human cells by disrupting the functionality of cell membranes. Meanwhile, the USDA has released its highly problematic proposal for the labeling of foods containing GMOs, many of which rely on Roundup for their production.

Genetics of Breast and Gynecologic Cancers

Breast cancer screening strategies, including breast magnetic resonance imaging and mammography, are commonly performed in carriers of BRCA pathogenic variants and in individuals at increased risk of breast cancer. Initiation of screening is generally recommended at earlier ages and at more frequent intervals in individuals with an increased risk due to genetics and family history than in the general population. There is evidence to demonstrate that these strategies have utility in early detection of cancer. In contrast, there is currently no evidence to demonstrate that gynecologic cancer screening using cancer antigen 125 testing and transvaginal ultrasound leads to early detection of cancer.
