Etiology is unknown, but autoimmune mechanisms have been implicated.Radiation Injuries: Harmful effects of non-experimental exposure to ionizing or non-ionizing radiation in VERTEBRATES.Confounding Factors (Epidemiology): Factors that can cause or prevent the outcome of interest, are not intermediate variables, and are not associated with the factor(s) under investigation. They give rise to situations in which the effects of two processes are not separated, or the contribution of causal factors cannot be separated, or the measure of the effect of exposure or risk is distorted because of its association with other factors influencing the outcome of the study.Carotid Artery Diseases: Pathological conditions involving the CAROTID ARTERIES, including the common, internal, and external carotid arteries. ATHEROSCLEROSIS and TRAUMA are relatively frequent causes of carotid artery pathology.Poisson Distribution: A distribution function used to describe the occurrence of rare events or to describe the sampling distribution of isolated counts in a continuum of time or space.

To do personal environmental monitoring with Valarm I plugged the Yocto-VOC into an Android device with the Valarm Pro app then placed the sensor in my jacket before I ran and walked around the different neighborhoods. Next the Valarm data was uploaded to the Valarm Tools website where I could see the mobile data acquisition points and view graphs of sensor data.

Now the researchers have published a follow-up study that confirms the results from 2010 and also show that the risk of osteoarthritis and meniscal surgery is no higher for those treated with physiotherapy alone. In the summer of 2010, researchers from Lund University in Sweden reported that 60 per cent of all anterior cruciate ligament ACL reconstructions could be avoided in favour of rehabilitation. Now the researchers have published a follow-up study that confirms the results from 2010 and also show that the risk of osteoarthritis and meniscal surgery is no higher for those treated with physiotherapy alone.

Home > 2010 > December > With Pfizer, FDA Shunning Tests on Mentally Ill, Promise of Smoking Remedy Chantix Turns to Ashes for Some. With Pfizer, FDA Shunning Tests on Mentally Ill, Promise of Smoking Remedy Chantix Turns to Ashes for Some By Lilly Fowler on December 15, 2010. A few days earlier, however, she had started taking Chantix, a pill meant to help her quit smoking by suppressing the effects of nicotine on the brain. A review of the drug’s history shows that Pfizer Inc., the giant pharmaceutical company that makes Chantix, failed in its years of clinical trials to test the product on the mentally ill or those with a recent history of depression even though millions of smokers suffer from psychiatric problems. Moreover, FDA regulators approved Chantix after a speeded-up “priority review” process, and did not request a follow-up study on mentally ill patients using the medication, even though the agency’s own safety revi...

Although the study was conducted at a single institution in Beijing, China, the increasing prevalence of diabetes is a growing problem worldwide that has many health care professionals concerned. “In China, nearly 114 million adults 11.6% have diabetes,” said lead study author Heng Zhang, MD, from Fuwai Hospital. “In the United States, the rate is nearly the same at 11.3% or about 25.6 million adults.” Diabetes is a major cause of heart disease and stroke and is the 7th leading cau...

Late radiation morbidity following randomization to preoperative versus postoperative radiotherapy in extremity soft tissue sarcoma Reviewer: John Wilson, MD Abramson Cancer Center of the University of Pennsylvania Last Modified: March 26, 2006. Late subcutaneous fibrosis and joint stiffness were assessed using the joint EORTC/RTOG late toxicity scoring criteria. Authors' Conclusions The authors report that these results suggest that postop RT causes more late toxicity, but they admit the toxicity is not significantly different from that seen with preop RT. However, they do point out that the sample size was fairly underpowered to show a difference in late toxicity, with powers of 40% for fibrosis, 12% for joint stiffness, and 22% for extremity edema. They conclude by saying that preop RT may have less late toxicity, but this must be balanced against...

Patient Presentation A 15-month-old caucasian male came to clinic for his health supervision visit. He was developing and growing normally and his parents had no concerns. He was taking a mixed diet appropriate for his age with ~20 ounces of whole milk daily. The pertinent physical exam showed a healthy appearing male with growth parameters at the 75% and a normal examination. His screening laboratory evaluation showed a hemoglobin of 10.6 mg/dL. The new intern wasn’t sure how to manage the diagnosis of anemia and asked about how much iron to prescribe. His medical record review noted a normal neonatal screening test and normal complete blood count at birth done because of a maternal fever. After discussion with her attending physician, they decided that this presumably was iron deficiency anemia, and they would treat with supplemental iron for 1...

NEW YORK Control of A1C, blood pressure and cholesterol among patients with diabetes has improved markedly, but more room for improvement remains, according to a new study. 15 issue of the journal Diabetes Care, found that from 1988 to 2010, the number of people with diabetes able to meet or exceed measures of A1C, blood pressure and cholesterol which together indicate good diabetes management rose from 2% to 19%. More than half of people met each individual goal in 2010. However, we see a lot of room for improvement for everyone, but particularly for younger people and some minority groups. According to 2007-2010 data, 53% of Americans with diabetes met A1C goals, compared with 43% in 1988-1994; 51% met blood pressure goals, compared with 33% in 1988-1994; and 56% met cholesterol goals, compared with 10% in 1988-1994. Nevertheless, blood glucose control was found to be worse among Mexican-Americans and young...

Large Text Treatment after lumpectomy in small estrogen negative tumors Treatment after lumpectomy in small estrogen negative tumors Dear OncoLink "Ask The Experts," My wife has undergone a lumpectomy for a 0.8cm nodule, sentinel lymph nodes were clear. Is there as clear a course of therapy in these cases as there is for the er/pr positive patients. The first and most important treatment is surgical resection lumpectomy of the breast cancer which has been completed. However, the risk of local recurrence after a lumpectomy is quite high and radiation therapy to the breast is certainly indicated. A consultation with a radiation oncologist to discuss this therapy should be arranged for all patients after a lumpectomy. Most of the existing data assessing the benefit of chemotherapy is in patients with primary tumors larger than one centimeter. Of course, each patient's situation is assessed individually, but most women with a primary tumor that small do not gain a tremendous benefit from systemic chemotherap...

Breast Cancer. Breast Cancer. Breast Cancer. The joint analysis is on data from 3,351 patients: 1,736 women in NSABP-B31 and 1,615 women in NCCTG-N9831. In NSABP-B31, paclitaxel was given at 175 mg/m 2 every 3 weeks for four cycles; in NCCTG-N9831, paclitaxel was given at 80 mg/m 2 every week for 12 cycles. The study arm for the joint analysis, therefore, was AC followed by paclitaxel plus trastuzumab, and the control arm was AC followed by paclitaxel. Unprecedented Results Findings of the first interim intent-to-treat analysis of 395 DFS events were dramatic: Use of trastuzumab reduced the overall risk of local recurrence at 3 years by 52% hazard ratio = 0.48, 2P = 3 ´ 10 -12, with 261 recurrences in women on chemotherapy alone vs 134 in those on trastuzumab. The absolute reduction in risk of recurrence by Kaplan-Meier analysis was 12% with trastuzumab at 3 years, and 18% at 4 years. The estimated absolute reduction in risk with trastuzumab was 9% at 3 years and 16% at 4 years. Cardiac Risk While chemotherap...

*  Response Evaluation Criteria in Solid Tumors
... 'Response Evaluation Criteria In Solid Tumors' 'RECIST' is a set of published rules that define when tumors in cancer patients improve "respond", stay the same "stabilize", or worsen "progress" during treatment. The criteria were published in February 2000 by an international collaboration including the European Organisation for Research and Treatment of Cancer EORTC, National Cancer Institute of the United States, and the National Cancer Institute of Canada Clinical Trials Group. Today, the majority of clinical trials evaluating cancer treatments for objective response in solid tumors use RECIST. These criteria were developed and published in February 2000, and subsequently updated in 2009. They are specifically NOT meant to determine whether patients have improved or not, as these are tumor-centric, not patient centric criteria. This distinction must be made by both the treating physicians and the cancer patients themselves. It is not intended that these RECIST guidelines play a role in that decision m...

*  NewYork-Presbyterian/Queens - Cancer Treatment: Surgery For Cancer Treatment
... Surgery. Cancer Center Cancer Treatment: Surgery For Cancer Treatment How is surgery used in cancer treatment. It provides the best chance to stop many types of cancer, and it also plays a part in diagnosing, staging, and supporting cancer treatment. Having surgery for cancer is different for every patient, depending on the type of surgery, the type of cancer, and the patient's health. Surgeons use curative surgery when the cancerous tumor is localized to a specific area of the body. However, other types of cancer treatments, such as radiation, may be used before or after the surgery. Preventive surgery is used to remove tissue that does not contain cancerous cells, but may develop into a malignant tumor. Other types of cancer treatment, such as chemotherapy and radiation, may be used after debulking surgery is performed. What are the risks and potential side effects of surgery for cancer treatment. This is one of the reasons why learning about your cancer and cancer treatment is important. Cryosurgery i...

*  .. Avastin Label Changes Reignites Debate: Is OS or PFS the Better Regulatory End
FDA s success in removing Avastin s metastatic breast cancer MBC indication has sparked a longstanding debate in drug development circles: What is the best proof that a drug works and should be approved. A panel discussion held November 29 in Cambridge, MA, debated whether the primary endpoint for regulatory sanction should remain overall survival OS or if it should change to progression-free survival PFS. CDER pointed to new studies, one of which showed a difference in overall survival for patients with MBC of less than two months from 24.8 months to 26.5 months. FDA countered that the primary endpoint should instead be overall survival, while PFS should continue as a surrogate endpoint of clinical benefit. During the discussion held on November 29, called Surrogates or Survival: A Discussion on Endpoints in Multiple Myeloma Clinical Trials, moderator Anne Quinn Young recalled how cancer treatment has changed over the past 10 years. Both PFS and OS are appropriate endpoints to define clinical benefits for pa...

(1/63688) Follow-up of American Cancer Society Special Postdoctoral Research Fellowship recipients.

A follow-up study of the 44 recipients of American Cancer Society, Inc., Special Postdoctoral Research Fellowship from 1962 to 1973 revealed that 11 of 21 M.D. candidates obtained their second (Ph.D.) degree at the end of training. By contrast, all but one among the 23 Ph.D. candidates were awarded the second (M.D.) degree. A great majority of either group remain in active research, regardless of whether or not they obtained the second degree. A very high percentage of their research is cancer related.  (+info)

(2/63688) Superimposed histologic and genetic mapping of chromosome 9 in progression of human urinary bladder neoplasia: implications for a genetic model of multistep urothelial carcinogenesis and early detection of urinary bladder cancer.

The evolution of alterations on chromosome 9, including the putative tumor suppressor genes mapped to the 9p21-22 region (the MTS genes), was studied in relation to the progression of human urinary bladder neoplasia by using whole organ superimposed histologic and genetic mapping in cystectomy specimens and was verified in urinary bladder tumors of various pathogenetic subsets with longterm follow-up. The applicability of chromosome 9 allelic losses as non-invasive markers of urothelial neoplasia was tested on voided urine and/or bladder washings of patients with urinary bladder cancer. Although sequential multiple hits in the MTS locus were documented in the development of intraurothelial precursor lesions, the MTS genes do not seem to represent a major target for p21-23 deletions in bladder cancer. Two additional tumor suppressor genes involved in bladder neoplasia located distally and proximally to the MTS locus within p22-23 and p11-13 regions respectively were identified. Several distinct putative tumor suppressor gene loci within the q12-13, q21-22, and q34 regions were identified on the q arm. In particular, the pericentromeric q12-13 area may contain the critical tumor suppressor gene or genes for the development of early urothelial neoplasia. Allelic losses of chromosome 9 were associated with expansion of the abnormal urothelial clone which frequently involved large areas of urinary bladder mucosa. These losses could be found in a high proportion of urothelial tumors and in voided urine or bladder washing samples of nearly all patients with urinary bladder carcinoma.  (+info)

(3/63688) Persistent damage to Enterocytozoon bieneusi, with persistent symptomatic relief, after combined furazolidone and albendazole in AIDS patients.

AIM: To investigate morphological changes in Enterocytozoon bieneusi and the duration of symptomatic relief after combination treatment with furazolidone and albendazole in AIDS patients. METHODS: Four severely immunocompromised AIDS patients with symptomatic E bieneusi infection of the gut received an 18 day course of combined furazolidone and albendazole (500 + 800 mg daily). All patients were monitored for parasite shedding in stool by light microscopy at the end of treatment and monthly during follow up. At the end of treatment, duodenal biopsy specimens obtained from three patients were studied by transmission electron microscopy by two pathologists blind to the patients' treatment or clinical outcome. Duodenal biopsy specimens obtained from one of the patients two months after completion of treatment were also studied electronmicroscopically. RESULTS: All patients had long lasting symptomatic relief, with a major decrease--or transient absence--of spore shedding in stools from completion of treatment. After treatment, changes in faecal spores were persistently found by light microscopy in all cases, and there was evidence of both a substantial decrease in the parasite load and ultrastructural damage in the parasite in all biopsy specimens. The treatment was well tolerated, and no patient had clinical or parasitological relapse during follow up (up to 15 months). CONCLUSIONS: The long lasting symptomatic relief observed in all four treated patients correlated with the persistent decrease in parasite load both in tissue and in stool, and with the morphological changes observed in the life cycle of the protozoan. These data suggest that combined treatment with furazolidone and albendazole is active against E bieneusi and may result in lasting remission even in severely immunocompromised patients.  (+info)

(4/63688) Expression of extracellular matrix proteins in cervical squamous cell carcinoma--a clinicopathological study.

AIM: To evaluate the intracellular and peritumoral expression of matrix proteins in squamous cell carcinoma of the uterine cervix using immunohistochemistry. METHODS: 71 squamous cell carcinomas and 10 controls were stained for laminin, fibronectin, and collagen IV. Cytoplasmic staining in tumour cells and peritumoral deposition of matrix proteins were evaluated. The association between staining results and patient age, tumour stage, histological grade, and survival was studied. RESULTS: Positive cytoplasmic staining for laminin, fibronectin, and collagen IV was observed in 17 (23.9%), 27 (38%), and 10 (14.1%) cases, respectively. Staining for laminin was most pronounced in the invasive front of tumour islands, while for fibronectin and collagen IV it appeared to be diffuse. Peritumoral staining for laminin and collagen IV was detected in 12 cases (16.9%). Early stage (Ia1-Ia2) tumours were uniformly negative for all three proteins. Cytoplasmic staining for laminin correlated with positive staining for fibronectin and collagen IV, and with the presence of a peritumoral deposition of collagen IV and laminin. There was no correlation with any of the three markers between staining results and patient age, stage, grade, or survival. CONCLUSIONS: Expression of extracellular matrix proteins in some cervical squamous cell carcinomas might reflect the enhanced ability of these tumours to modify the peritumoral stroma. This ability seems to be absent in early stage tumours. The correlation between intracytoplasmic and peritumoral expression of matrix proteins supports the evidence of their synthesis by tumour cells. However, this property did not correlate with disease outcome in this study.  (+info)

(5/63688) Reproductive factors and fatal hip fractures. A Norwegian prospective study of 63,000 women.

STUDY OBJECTIVE: The aim of the study was to investigate the impact of reproductive variables (age at menarche, menopause, first and last birth as well as parity, lactation, and abortions) on hip fracture mortality. DESIGN AND SETTING: A prospective study in Norway with more than 60,000 women followed up for 29 years. A total of 465 deaths as a result of hip fracture were recorded. MAIN RESULTS: Statistically significant linear relations (p < or = 0.02) were found between both age at menarche and length of reproductive period (defined as age at menopause to age at menarche) and the mortality of hip fractures in women aged less than 80. The death rate for women with a late menarche (> or = 17 years) was twice that of the women with relatively early menarche (< or = 13 years). Compared with women with less than 30 years between menopause and menarche, the mortality rate ratio in women with more than 38 reproductive years was 0.5. We also found an inverse relation with age at first birth. CONCLUSIONS: This study supports by hypothesis that an early menarche and a long reproductive period protect against hip fracture mortality. High age at first birth may also be protective.  (+info)

(6/63688) Reconstruction for chronic dysfunction of ileoanal pouches.

OBJECTIVE: A retrospective review was performed to determine the results after surgical reconstruction for chronic dysfunction of ileal pouch-anal procedures for ulcerative colitis and familial colonic polyposis at a university medical center. METHODS: During the 20-year period from 1978 to 1998, 601 patients underwent colectomy and ileal pouch-anal anastomosis (IPAA) for ulcerative colitis, familial colonic polyposis, or Hirschsprung's disease. A J pouch was used for 351 patients, a lateral pouch for 221, an S pouch for 6, and a straight pull-through for 23. Acute complications after pouch construction have been detailed in previous publications and are not included in this study. Chronic pouch stasis with diarrhea, frequency, urgency, and soiling gradually became more severe in 164 patients (27.3%), associated with pouch enlargement, an elongated efferent limb, and obstruction to pouch outflow, largely related to the pouch configuration used during the authors' early clinical experience. These patients were sufficiently symptomatic to be considered for reconstruction (mean 68 months after IPAA). Transanal resection of an elongated IPAA spout was performed on 58 patients; abdominoperineal mobilization of the pouch with resection and tapering of the lower end (AP reconstruction) and ileoanal anastomosis on 83; pouch removal and new pouch construction on 7; and conversion of a straight pull-through to a pouch on 16. RESULTS: Good long-term results (mean 7.7 years) with improvement in symptoms occurred in 98% of transanal resections, 91.5% of AP reconstructions, 86% of new pouch constructions, and 100% of conversions of a straight pull-through to a pouch. The average number of bowel movements per 24 hours at 6 months was 4.8. Complications occurred in 11.6% of reconstructed patients. Five of the 164 patients (3.1%) required eventual pouch removal and permanent ileostomy. The high rate of pouch revision in this series of patients undergoing IPAA is due to a policy of aggressive correction when patients do not experience an optimal functional result, or have a progressive worsening of their status. CONCLUSIONS: Although occasionally a major undertaking, reconstruction of ileoanal pouches with progressive dysfunction due to large size or a long efferent limb has resulted in marked improvement in intestinal function in >93% of patients and has reduced the need for late pouch removal.  (+info)

(7/63688) Intrahepatic recurrence after curative resection of hepatocellular carcinoma: long-term results of treatment and prognostic factors.

OBJECTIVE: This study aimed to evaluate the long-term results of treatment and prognostic factors in patients with intrahepatic recurrence after curative resection of hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC). SUMMARY BACKGROUND DATA: Recent studies have demonstrated the usefulness of re-resection, transarterial oily chemoembolization (TOCE), or percutaneous ethanol injection therapy (PEIT) in selected patients with intrahepatic recurrent HCC. The overall results of a treatment strategy combining these modalities have not been fully evaluated, and the prognostic factors determining survival in these patients remain to be clarified. METHODS: Two hundred and forty-four patients who underwent curative resection for HCC were followed for intrahepatic recurrence, which was treated aggressively with a strategy including different modalities. Survival results after recurrence and from initial hepatectomy were analyzed, and prognostic factors were determined by univariate and multivariate analysis using 27 clinicopathologic variables. RESULTS: One hundred and five patients (43%) with intrahepatic recurrence were treated with re-resection (11), TOCE (71), PEIT (6), systemic chemotherapy (8) or conservatively (9). The overall 1-year, 3-year, and 5-year survival rates from the time of recurrence were 65.5%, 34.9%, and 19.7%, respectively, and from the time of initial hepatectomy were 78.4%, 47.2%, and 30.9%, respectively. The re-resection group had the best survival, followed by the TOCE group. Multivariate analysis revealed Child's B or C grading, serum albumin < or = 40 g/l, multiple recurrent tumors, recurrence < or = 1 year after hepatectomy, and concurrent extrahepatic recurrence to be independent adverse prognostic factors. CONCLUSIONS: Aggressive treatment with a multimodality strategy could result in prolonged survival in patients with intrahepatic recurrence after curative resection for HCC. Prognosis was determined by the liver function status, interval to recurrence, number of recurrent tumors, any concurrent extrahepatic recurrence, and type of treatment.  (+info)

(8/63688) Serum triglyceride: a possible risk factor for ruptured abdominal aortic aneurysm.

BACKGROUND: We aimed to determine the relationship between ruptured abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA) and serum concentrations of lipids and apolipoproteins. METHODS: A cohort of 21 520 men, aged 35-64 years, was recruited from men attending the British United Provident Association (BUPA) clinic in London for a routine medical examination in 1975-1982. Smoking habits, weight, height and blood pressure were recorded at entry. Lipids and apolipoproteins were measured in stored serum samples from the 30 men who subsequently died of ruptured AAA and 150 matched controls. RESULTS: Triglyceride was strongly related to risk of ruptured AAA. In univariate analyses the risk in men on the 90th centile of the distribution relative to the risk in men on the 10th (RO10-90) was 12 (95% confidence interval [CI] : 3.8-37) for triglyceride, 5.5 (95% CI: 1.8-17) for apolipoprotein B (apoB) (the protein component of low density lipoprotein [LDL]), 0.15 (95% CI : 0.04-0.56) for apo A1 (the protein component of high density lipoprotein [HDL]), 3.7 (95% CI: 1.4-9.4) for body mass index and 3.0 (95% CI: 1.1-8.5) for systolic blood pressure. Lipoprotein (a) (Lp(a)) was not a significant risk factor (RO10-90 = 1.6, 95% CI: 0.6-3.0). In multivariate analysis triglyceride retained its strong association. CONCLUSION: Triglyceride appears to be a strong risk factor for ruptured AAA, although further studies are required to clarify this. If this and other associations are cause and effect, then changing the distribution of risk factors in the population (by many people stopping smoking and adopting a lower saturated fat diet and by lowering blood pressure) could achieve an important reduction in mortality from ruptured AAA.  (+info)


My girlfriend is pregnant and we decided to make an abortion, we are really depressed, help?


We are both students. We had an unplanned pregnancy. We decided to make an abortion  which is legal in the netherlands,but the doctor told my girlfriend that she is not ready for an abortion, she has to wait for some time. because she doesn't have enough strength. she is not eating well and she spends most of her time crying. She is 8 weeks pregnant. The more time it takes the more we are getting depressed and the more we are not following our studies. your help please?
----------

Please dont do this!!
Look at how bad this is making u feel!
Think of the after-effects!!
Your baby needs u.

At least consider adoption


Wouldn't the adverse effects to victims of Narcissist result in Anxiety Disorder?


I've been doing some follow-up studies and I'm almost sure people with Narcissistic personality disorder do leave a trail of victimized people suffering from anxiety disorder. Think about it. Narcissism doesn't give crap how abused the victim is because it's has no empathy. Usually before you realized you've been a victim, it's too late and anxiety sets in. Thus my question.
----------

Of course, and worse, sometimes children of narcissists become narcissists, but it's by no means inevitable, provided stable love was give by at least one person, such as a grandparent.

Entanglement or detachment are adopted by adult children of narcissists in order to cope.

What studies have been done which have confirmed a breast cancer and abortion link?


No offense intended, but I am only interested in studies - not opinions or debates. I am specifically interested in studies which regard the link as existent, as I have already found articles disproving the link.
----------

The largest, and probably the most reliable study on this topic was done during the 1990s in Denmark, a country with very detailed medical records on all its citizens. In that study, all Danish women born between 1935 and 1978 (a total of 1.5 million women) were linked with the National Registry of Induced Abortions and with the Danish Cancer Registry. So all information about their abortions and their breast cancer came from registries, was very complete, and was not influenced by recall bias. 

After adjusting for known breast cancer risk factors, the researchers found that induced abortion(s) had no overall effect on the risk of breast cancer. The size of this study and the manner in which it was done provides good evidence that induced abortion does not affect a woman's risk of developing breast cancer.

Another large, prospective study was reported on by Harvard researchers in 2007. This study included more than 100,000 women who were between the ages of 29 and 46 at the start of the study in 1993. These women were followed until 2003. Again, because they were asked about childbirths and abortions at the start of the study, recall bias was unlikely to be a problem. After adjusting for known breast cancer risk factors, the researchers found no link between either spontaneous or induced abortions and breast cancer.

The California Teachers Study also reported on more than 100,000 women in 2008. Researchers asked the women in 1995 about past induced and spontaneous abortions. While the women were being followed in the study, more than 3,300 developed invasive breast cancer. There was no difference in breast cancer risk between the group who had either spontaneous or induced abortions and those who had not had an abortion.

In February 2003, the U.S. National Cancer Institute (NCI) held a workshop of more than 100 of the world's leading experts who study pregnancy and breast cancer risk. The experts reviewed human and animal studies that looked at the link between pregnancy and breast cancer risk, including studies of induced and spontaneous abortions. Some of their findings were: 

•Breast cancer risk is increased for a short time after a full-term pregnancy (that is, a pregnancy that results in the birth of a living child).
•Induced abortion is not linked to an increase in breast cancer risk.
•Spontaneous abortion is not linked to an increase in breast cancer risk.
The level of scientific evidence for these findings was considered to be "well established" (the highest level).


Sorry, we here on the cancer board aren't big into spreading falsehoods and nonsense, especially if we've had cancer ourselves.


What studies show boys with unisex names are unhappier or have more problems?


More than a few times here and on other message boards I've seen people state that "studies" show that boys with unisex names are unhappier, cause more trouble, resent their parents etc. But no one ever points to such "studies". Do they really exist or do people just make it up based on what they believe?
----------

I can't imagine there are too many such studies. Back in the late 40's and early 50's some what I consider girls names were very popular for boys and my husband has one of them. I can't say it has affected him at all.


How important is it to follow steps and exact ingredients in recipes when cooking?


for me personally, i dont' think it's that important,   I think the recipe is just a good guideline to follow.  You can omit certain ingredients which you may not have on hand or may not prefer.  And some of the steps can changed for a matter of convenience...but basically if you've cooked before, there are things you know you can and cannot do when cooking..And if it turns out bad, you learn from your experience....how do expert cooks feel about this?  Thanks!
5x the amount of garlic...i love it!     sometimes i opt for 10x the amount, plus I'll add hot sauce or hot peppers for extra kick
----------

Cooking is an art; baking is more of a science.  My Mom never owned a cook book or a measuring cup; and often made do when she was missing an ingredient.
I followed her example, owned a catering business, and most consider me a great cook; plus, I love it.
In baking however, unless you have LOTS of experience, you'd better follow a good recipe.


What is the best diet to follow while working out?


I am about to start back to the gym and wondering what is the best diet to follow while working out.  I understand that you can not achieve the results you want just by working out.  So, I am going to be doing a combo cardio and free weights three times a week first thing in the mornings.  I am looking to of coarse lose body fat and tone and define my body. Sould I drink a protein shake before I workout and after.   Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
----------

The two best non-diet, diet plans I have used and swear by are the "Abs Diet" written by the editor of Men's Health magazine. A good, humerous read, easy to follow and is a way of life that will work well with your workout routine. The second book I have read as well as the cookbook is "The Eat- Clean Diet Book", written by the editor of Oxygen Magazine". Again it is life style, not a restrictive diet. They are excellent guidelines and I have had great results with both plans.


How should i follow the GM diet when am working in night shift?


I have planned to follow GM diet and also I have few questions. Should I have the breakfast as per GM diet in night since am working in night shift?
----------

i also work night shift, but as a bodybuilder i need to make sure i follow a eating schedule, take your schedule that they give you, and adapt it to your "daytime" hours. eat your breakfast at 4pm when you wake, have lunch at 8pm, snack at 2am, dinner at 5am, or something along that line. that is what i have been doing for years and that is what works best for me


What exactly is the difference between social studies and history?


A university that I am looking at requires two years of social studies. I took World History CP freshman year, then US AP 1 and 2 sophomore and junior year. Will those qualify as social studies credits?
----------

They're basically the same terms. Those are both social studies credits I'm pretty sure, but we wouldn't know. The only way you could be sure is to look those courses up in your Program of Studies. But I'm pretty sure that those count as history/social studies credits.
