Bone Strengthening Drugs Linked to Lower Breast Cancer Incidence | Bone Strengthening Drugs

Bone Strengthening Drugs Linked to Lower Breast Cancer Incidence | Bone Strengthening Drugs

Submitted by: Medico News

New research from the US has discovered that women who used bisphosphonates, commonly-prescribed bone-strengthening drugs, had significantly fewer invasive breast cancers than women who did not use them. “The idea that bisphosphonates could reduce breast cancer incidence is very exciting because there are about 30 million prescriptions for these agents written annually in the US targeting bone health, and more could easily be used to counteract both osteoporosis and breast cancer,” Chlebowski told the media. For the study, Chlebowski and colleagues re-analyzed data from the Women’s Health Initiative (WHI), a large observational study set up by the National Institutes of Health (NIH) in 1991 to examine the most common causes of death, disability and impaired quality of life in postmenopausal women. The WHI collected information on cardiovascular disease, cancer, and osteoporosis.

In the 150,000-plus cohort of generally healthy postmenopausal women, the researchers found 32 per cent fewer cases of invasive breast cancer among women who used bisphosphonates (mostly alendronate, marketed as Fosamax by Merck), compared to women who did not use such drugs.

What prompted the study were the findings of a report from a breast cancer trial that suggested bisphosphonate zoledronic acid given intravenously every 6 months resulted in fewer cancers in the other breast.

Chlebowski said that:

“It appeared to make bone less hospitable to breast cancer.”

In deciding how to devise the study, the researchers had to find a way to control for bone density, since that in itself is a risk factor for breast cancer. In other words they had to devise a way to control for potential differences between the women prescribed bisphosphonate and those not prescribed bisphosphonate, because those on the bone-strengthening drugs were on it because they had low bone mineral density, which is linked to lower breast cancer incidence.

They found that about 10,000 of the cohort had their bone mineral density analyzed as part of the WHI study, and for the others, including those prescribed bisphosphonates, the researchers used a 10-item hip fracture predictive score to measure bone density.

Thus they were able to correlate the results of bone mineral density tests in the 10,000 who had the tests with the predictive score in order to correct for any potential difference in bone density in women using bisphosphonates compared to those who did not use them.

Thus prepared, Chlebowski and colleagues then studied data on 2,216 women who were using bisphosphonates when they entered the WHI study.

The results showed that:

Only 64 of the bisphosphonate users developed breast cancer, and most of the cases, (50 of them), were estrogen-receptor positive.

Overall there was an average of 32 per cent fewer breast cancers among bisphosphonate users compared to non-users.

There were 30 per cent fewer estrogen-receptor positive cancers and 34 per cent fewer entry-receptor negative cancers among bisphosphonate users, although the latter finding was not statistically significant due to low numbers.

Speculating on what effect bisphosphonates might have to cause fewer breast cancers, Chlebowski said it could be because the drugs discourage blood vessel formation (which tumors rely on to grow), and help the immune system:

“Bisphosphonates reduce angiogenesis and stimulate immune cells responsible for tumor cell surveillance as potential mediators,” explained Chlebowski.

He said we need to study this link in more detail, because “while we currently have several options for reducing receptor positive breast cancers, none are available for receptor negative cancers”.

Other studies presented at the symposium pointed to a similar link between bisphosphonate use and lower breast cancer risk, and a number of breast cancer trials evaluating oral and intravenous uses of the drug are about to report randomized clinical trial evidence on it.

Inappropriate Behavior as a "Teachable Moment"

Inappropriate Behavior as a "Teachable Moment"

Inappropriate Behavior as a "Teachable Moment"

By: Norma Schmidt

Two boys in a first grade classroom were arguing loudly over an item they both wanted to use at the same time.

Their teacher approached them in a friendly way and said, "Boys, it sounds like you two are having a problem. Let's talk it out."

One of the boys told his side of the story, his face still tense but his voice lowered to an "indoor" volume. The second boy listened and then, without any prompting, came up with a solution to which the first boy readily agreed.

"Great job!" the teacher beamed. "See? You can talk it out!"

A TEACHING PERSPECTIVE CAN PRODUCE AMAZING RESULTS WHEN KIDS BEHAVE INAPPROPRIATELY.

If we approach unwanted behavior from the perspective of our child's judge/jury/jailer, our first impulse may be to punish.

But punishment doesn't teach kids what they SHOULD be doing. It doesn't expand kids' problem-solving skills, teach them how to repair social mistakes, or improve their social perception.

Fortunately, punishment isn't the only available tool.

WE CAN CHOOSE TO VIEW THE INAPPROPRIATE BEHAVIOR AS A "TEACHABLE MOMENT."

When the teacher in the story above heard the two boys arguing, she spotted a chance to teach better social problem-solving.

Inviting the boys to "talk it out" reminded them of their capacity to problem-solve without shouting or arguing. They saw that "talking it out" could work, and they were more likely to "talk it out" next time.

A teaching perspective has room for punishment in some cases, but the focus is on helping kids learn the skills they need to behave appropriately.

If we view inappropriate behavior as a learning opportunity for the child, new options open up.

HERE ARE TEN CHOICES FOR MAKING THE MOST OF A TEACHABLE MOMENT:
1. Redirect the child toward a more appropriate activity.

2. Inform the child that what they're doing "isn't a good idea" or "isn't safe."

3. Give a friendly reminder about the rule the child needs to be following.

4. Guide the child through the steps of apologizing.

5. Ask the child to consider how others feel when she engages in the inappropriate behavior.

6. Help the child make amends to anyone negatively affected by the inappropriate behavior. Ask, "What can we do to help (name of person) feel better now?"

7. In the case of a conflict, prompt the children to "talk it out," providing assistance as needed.

8. Give a new rule, if the situation wasn't covered by the rules the child has already been taught.

9. Invite the child to think of a better to way to ask for what they want or need in the situation.

10. Teach the child appropriate words/behaviors to replace the inappropriate ones.

The rules of appropriate social behavior take a long time to learn and an even longer time to internalize as habits. Even adults don't do it perfectly!

When we use our child's behavior mistakes as opportunities to offer guidance, we're giving our child their best chance to become more kind, responsible and socially competent.

Progression in Exercise

Progression in Exercise

Submitted by: Mike Umberger

Success, when achieved consistently over a period of time is acknowledged by one and all. Sporadic success and eye catching results are often dismissed as flukes. The same logic applies to exercise as well. You can and should only claim that you are successful with your fitness training if you do not stagnate. And in order to prevent yourself from getting stuck, you need to understand the concept of progression in exercise.

The principle of progression states that the results you get from workouts are directly proportional to the increase in the amount of effort you put in. if you didn’t get it here’s a real life example which may help you grasp the point.
If you invest $100 in a fund which pays you 10% interest, you get $10 every year. But increase your investment to $1000 or $10000; you get increasing returns of $100 or $1000 respectively. Carrying this logic into exercise, the investment is the amount effort you put in and the returns are the benefits you get from exercise. So the bottomline is: work harder to get fitter.

Understanding this is really important if you want to succeed with fitness training. If you don’t lift, run or stretch more than what you did two months ago, you are simply not progressing! You might think your personal trainer is pushing you too hard but he might just be trying to ensure natural progression. And when progress stalls you might even consider quitting exercise altogether!

While progression is necessary, it is also important to increase the amount of effort you are putting in at an optimal rate. There are two things you need to consider here:

A slow rate of progression can make you fat in case you are into strength training. This is because, the high protein diet you might also be on, gets converted by your body into fat. This is only possible if you are not working your muscle groups enough to aid the creation of new tissue.

A faster than ideal rate of progression can also have a detrimental effect on your health. If you work too hard, you might overtrain or might even face an injury.

So, the million dollar question is; what is the ideal rate of progression? Unfortunately there is no definitive answer to this. The rate at which you should increase the amount of weights you lift or distance you run or even minutes you workout, can only be found after a bit of trial and error.

Here again, a personal trainer can be your best friend. He can assess your body’s responsiveness to exercise better than anyone and this is one more reason why hiring a trainer is a great idea.

Also, in case your progress has stalled, a trainer can help you get out of the rut and start getting increasing returns from exercise once again. A common way, in which trainers help you shrug off a slump, is by reducing the volume of exercise you do and then increase it again.

Perhaps you now have a clear idea about progression in exercise. Use this knowledge to get the best out of your training plan.

Are Vitamin Supplements Beneficial For Your Health?

Are Vitamin Supplements Beneficial For Your Health?

Are Vitamin Supplements Beneficial For Your Health?

When it comes to all the hype about vitamins, you have probably wondered "Are vitamin supplements beneficial?" Despite the numerous nutritional studies conducted over the past few years, there is still much controversy surrounding the issue of daily vitamin supplements.

The question is not whether taking a daily multivitamin is safe - a daily regimen including a multivitamin has been proven both safe and effective. The question really boils down to whether an individual can get all of the required vitamins and minerals from their diet.

As you probably know well, today's hectic lifestyle makes it very difficult to plan, prepare, and serve a nutritionally well-balanced diet. With people spending more time at work, or shuttling the kids to their extracurricular activities, eating out has become a standard practice for most individuals and families. Therein lies a major dietary problem!

Eating fast foods, or over-sized portions from the local diner, leaves a lot to be desired from a nutritional standpoint. These foods are often prepared with artery clogging oils, saturated fats, and nutritionally deficient ingredients.

When was the last time that you felt you ate a well-balanced meal at your local fast food restaurant?

Worse yet, many people skimp on meals, or miss them altogether, as their busy schedules take precedent over supplying their bodies with needed nutrition, including vitamins and minerals.

Another common "symptom" of today's fast-paced lifestyle, stress is known to have a debilitating effect on an individual's body and reduces its ability to process food efficiently. Unfortunately, stress has become a way of life for all of us. Our busy lives, and the methods we employ to cope with the resulting stress, almost ensures us of experiencing deficiencies in many essential vitamins and minerals.

If the above example even remotely resembles the way you live, it is very likely that you would benefit from a recommended daily vitamin supplement. On the other hand, experiencing a vitamin deficiency can result in serious physical issues. Symptoms can range from fatigue and listlessness to circulatory problems and nervous system damage.

So, in answer to the question "Are vitamin supplements beneficial?", the answer is a definite YES. Both children and adults can benefit from taking vitamin and mineral supplements on a regular basis. A high quality multivitamin supplement taken daily can be viewed as a nutritional "insurance" policy.

So tell me, are you willing to take the risk of being nutritionally "un-insured"? The decision is yours!

O Lord, when things are bleak, you are our hope. You are the only One who is able to do the things which we can not do, and it is You who makes the impossible possible. Please hear this prayer and help Your humbled servants so that we can bring more into Your house. You are our GOD and our Redeemer now and always. Amen.

Get Cooking - Tips and Recipes For Fast Weeknight Meals

Get Cooking - Tips and Recipes For Fast Weeknight Meals

Submitted by: Lorraine Matthews Antosiewicz

Let’s Get Cooking! Here are a few cooking tips and tricks to help you get a tasty meal on the table in no time and feel good about what everyone is eating.

1. Plan Ahead

You’ll be more efficient and prepare healthier meals by planning ahead. Pick a day when you can take 20 minutes or so to inventory your fridge/pantry and use this template to plan out your meals for the week http://njnutritionist.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/01/7-day-meal-planner.pdf. Prepare an organized grocery list and make a trip to the grocery store. Having a weekly meal plan will allow you to identify small do-ahead steps that you can knock out in advance; for example, making a marinade the night before for chicken cutlets or prepping several days of salad greens at once. No matter when you fit it in, planning ahead will set you up for fast (stress-free) healthy meals all week long.

2. Slow Cooker (aka crock pot)

Slow cookers prepare your meal for you while you are away so you can come home to a kitchen smelling like a yummy home-cooked meal. Slow-cooked dishes are ideal for making ahead and reheating for lunch or dinner tomorrow, or freezing for a quick meal next week.

Slow Cooker Recipe http://www.skinnytaste.com/2009/02/crock-pot-santa-fe-chicken-425-pts.html

3. Freezer Favorites

Stock your freezer with a few dishes that freeze and defrost easily so that all you have to do on those hectic weeknights is reheat. For example, bake a large tray of lasagna or a big pot of chili on the weekend, divide into 2 or 3 smaller meal-size portions, and freeze for easy reheating during the week.

Freezer-Friendly Recipe http://ohmyveggies.com/recipe-veggie-loaded-chili-freezer-friendly/

4. Re-fresh Leftovers

Zapping leftovers in the microwave can definitely leave something to be desired. But when leftovers are transformed completely into another dish, it’s a whole different (delicious) story. Using leftover chicken as a filling for tacos or combining it with cooked rice and veggies to make a stir-fry is genius and easy.

5. One-Pot (or pan) Meals Make Clean-Up a Snap

A quick and easy route to a healthy quick dinner is to make it in one pot or on one baking sheet. Not only does this save you the time of preparing a main dish and two sides, you have far fewer dishes to wash at the end.

6. Invest in a Pressure Cooke

Pressure cookers are amazingly useful tools with the ability to quickly tenderize meat and vegetables, and extract their delicious flavors. These simple pots trap steam, which in turn builds pressure, creating higher cooking temperatures and reducing cooking time. Today's models are nearly foolproof. A pressure cooker will put a hot meal on the table in less than 20 minutes. You can use them for almost any recipe that's based on moist heat like braised meat, beans, or a stew.

Pressure Cooker Chicken and Rice https://www.cooksillustrated.com/recipes/7538-pressure-cooker-easy-chicken-and-rice

7. Have a few go-to meals.

Always have healthy ingredients on hand for a couple quick go-to meals you can make on any given day. Keep these meals as simple as possible. Here are five ideas for healthy dinners you can have on the table in 20 minutes or less:

• Grilled cheese or tuna melt with sliced tomato; cup of lentil soup; tossed green salad; and fruit

• Pizza prepared on a toasted whole wheat English muffin or whole grain tortillas, topped with tomato sauce, chopped veggies, shredded cheese; tossed green salad; and fruit

• Veggie omelet made with cheese and leftover veggies, whole wheat toast, and fruit

• Stir-fry shrimp and veggies served with brown rice; tossed green salad and fruit

• Microwaved sweet potato topped with black beans, salsa, and grated cheese; tossed green salad and fruit.
