Early Detection of Cancer
Graphical representation of a statistical model containing scales for calculating the prognostic weight of a value for each individual variable. Nomograms are instruments that can be used to predict outcomes using specific clinical parameters. They use ALGORITHMS that incorporate several variables to calculate the predicted probability that a patient will achieve a particular clinical endpoint.
Practice Guidelines as Topic
Directions or principles presenting current or future rules of policy for assisting health care practitioners in patient care decisions regarding diagnosis, therapy, or related clinical circumstances. The guidelines may be developed by government agencies at any level, institutions, professional societies, governing boards, or by the convening of expert panels. The guidelines form a basis for the evaluation of all aspects of health care and delivery.
National Institutes of Health (U.S.)
A cancer registry mandated under the National Cancer Act of 1971 to operate and maintain a population-based cancer reporting system, reporting periodically estimates of cancer incidence and mortality in the United States. The Surveillance, Epidemiology, and End Results (SEER) Program is a continuing project of the National Cancer Institute of the National Institutes of Health. Among its goals, in addition to assembling and reporting cancer statistics, are the monitoring of annual cancer incident trends and the promoting of studies designed to identify factors amenable to cancer control interventions. (From National Cancer Institute, NIH Publication No. 91-3074, October 1990)
Studies in which subsets of a defined population are identified. These groups may or may not be exposed to factors hypothesized to influence the probability of the occurrence of a particular disease or other outcome. Cohorts are defined populations which, as a whole, are followed in an attempt to determine distinguishing subgroup characteristics.
Age as a constituent element or influence contributing to the production of a result. It may be applicable to the cause or the effect of a circumstance. It is used with human or animal concepts but should be differentiated from AGING, a physiological process, and TIME FACTORS which refers only to the passage of time.

Follow-up of American Cancer Society Special Postdoctoral Research Fellowship recipients. (1/79)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)
Annual report to the nation on the status of cancer, 1973-1996, with a special section on lung cancer and tobacco smoking. (2/79)BACKGROUND: The American Cancer Society, the National Cancer Institute (NCI), and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), including the National Center for Health Statistics (NCHS), provide the second annual report to the nation on progress in cancer prevention and control, with a special section on lung cancer and tobacco smoking. METHODS: Age-adjusted rates (using the 1970 U.S. standard population) were based on cancer incidence data from NCI and underlying cause of death data compiled by NCHS. The prevalence of tobacco use was derived from CDC surveys. Reported P values are two-sided. RESULTS: From 1990 through 1996, cancer incidence (-0.9% per year; P = .16) and cancer death (-0.6% per year; P = .001) rates for all sites combined decreased. Among the 10 leading cancer incidence sites, statistically significant decreases in incidence rates were seen in males for leukemia and cancers of the lung, colon/rectum, urinary bladder, and oral cavity and pharynx. Except for lung cancer, incidence rates for these cancers also declined in females. Among the 10 leading cancer mortality sites, statistically significant decreases in cancer death rates were seen for cancers of the male lung, female breast, the prostate, male pancreas, and male brain and, for both sexes, cancers of the colon/rectum and stomach. Age-specific analyses of lung cancer revealed that rates in males first declined at younger ages and then for each older age group successively over time; rates in females appeared to be in the early stages of following the same pattern, with rates decreasing for women aged 40-59 years. CONCLUSIONS: The declines in cancer incidence and death rates, particularly for lung cancer, are encouraging. However, unless recent upward trends in smoking among adolescents can be reversed, the lung cancer rates that are currently declining in the United States may rise again. (+info)
Great expectations: historical perspectives on genetic breast cancer testing. (3/79)Women who test positive for a genetic breast cancer marker may have more than a 50% chance of developing the disease. Although past screening technologies have sought to identify actual breast cancers, as opposed to predisposition, the history of screening may help predict the societal response to genetic testing. For decades, educational messages have encouraged women to find breast cancers as early as possible. Such messages have fostered the popular assumption that immediately discovered and treated breast cancers are necessarily more curable. Research, however, has shown that screening improves the prognosis of some--but not all--breast cancers, and also that it may lead to unnecessary interventions. The dichotomy between the advertised value of early detection and its actual utility has caused particular controversy in the United States, where the cultural climate emphasizes the importance of obtaining all possible medical information and acting on it. Early detection has probably helped to lower overall breast cancer mortality. But it has proven hard to praise aggressive screening without exaggerating its merits. Women considering genetic breast cancer testing should weight the benefits and limitations of early knowledge. (+info)
Intentional weight loss and mortality among overweight individuals with diabetes. (4/79)OBJECTIVE: To estimate the effect of intentional weight loss on mortality in overweight individuals with diabetes. RESEARCH DESIGN AND METHODS: We performed a prospective analysis with a 12-year mortality follow-up (1959-1972) of 4,970 overweight individuals with diabetes, 40-64 years of age, who were enrolled in the American Cancer Society's Cancer Prevention Study I. Rate ratios (RRs) were calculated, comparing overall death rates, and death from cardiovascular disease (CVD) or diabetes in individuals with and without reported intentional weight loss. RESULTS: Intentional weight loss was reported by 34% of the cohort. After adjustment for initial BMI, sociodemographic factors, health status, and physical activity, intentional weight loss was associated with a 25% reduction in total mortality (RR = 0.75; 95% CI 0.67-0.84), and a 28% reduction in CVD and diabetes mortality (RR = 0.72; 0.63-0.82). Intentional weight loss of 20-29 lb was associated with the largest reductions in mortality (approximately 33%). Weight loss >70 lb was associated with small increases in mortality CONCLUSIONS: Intentional weight loss was associated with substantial reductions in mortality in this observational study of overweight individuals with diabetes.

Passive smoking exposure and female breast cancer mortality. (5/79)BACKGROUND: Several studies have reported positive associations between environmental tobacco smoke (ETS) and increased risk of breast cancer. However, studies of active smoking and risk of breast cancer are equivocal and in general do not support a positive association. To try to resolve this paradox, we examined the association between breast cancer mortality and potential ETS exposure from spousal smoking in an American Cancer Society prospective study of U.S. adult women. METHODS: We assessed breast cancer death rates in a cohort of 146 488 never-smoking, single-marriage women who were cancer free at enrollment in 1982. Breast cancer death rates among women whose husbands smoked were compared with those among women married to men who had never smoked. Cox proportional hazards modeling was used to control for potential risk factors other than ETS exposure. RESULTS: After 12 years of follow-up, 669 cases of fatal breast cancer were observed in the cohort. Overall, we saw no association between exposure to ETS and death from breast cancer (rate ratio [RR] = 1.0; 95% confidence interval [CI] = 0.8-1.2). We did, however, find a small, not statistically significant increased risk of breast cancer mortality among women who were married before age 20 years to smokers (RR = 1. 2; 95% CI = 0.8-1.8). CONCLUSIONS: In contrast to the results of previous studies, this study found no association between exposure to ETS and female breast cancer mortality. The results of our study are particularly compelling because of its prospective design as compared with most earlier studies, the relatively large number of exposed women with breast cancer deaths, and the reporting of exposure by the spouse rather than by proxy.

Annual report to the nation on the status of cancer (1973 through 1998), featuring cancers with recent increasing trends. (6/79)BACKGROUND: The American Cancer Society, the National Cancer Institute (NCI), the North American Association of Central Cancer Registries, and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, including the National Center for Health Statistics (NCHS), collaborate to provide an annual update on cancer occurrence and trends in the United States. This year's report contains a special feature that focuses on cancers with recent increasing trends. METHODS: From 1992 through 1998, age-adjusted rates and annual percent changes are calculated for cancer incidence and underlying cause of death with the use of NCI incidence and NCHS mortality data. Joinpoint analysis, a model of joined line segments, is used to examine long-term trends for the four most common cancers and for those cancers with recent increasing trends in incidence or mortality. Statistically significant findings are based on a P value of.05 by use of a two-sided test. State-specific incidence and death rates for 1994 through 1998 are reported for major cancers. RESULTS: From 1992 through 1998, total cancer death rates declined in males and females, while cancer incidence rates declined only in males. Incidence rates in females increased slightly, largely because of breast cancer increases that occurred in some older age groups, possibly as a result of increased early detection. Female lung cancer mortality, a major cause of death in women, continued to increase but more slowly than in earlier years. In addition, the incidence or mortality rate increased in 10 other sites, accounting for about 13% of total cancer incidence and mortality in the United States. CONCLUSIONS: Overall cancer incidence and death rates continued to decline in the United States. Future progress will require sustained improvements in cancer prevention, screening, and treatment.

The American Cancer Society Cancer Prevention Study II Nutrition Cohort: rationale, study design, and baseline characteristics. (7/79)BACKGROUND: Large-scale, prospective cohort studies have played a critical role in discovering factors that contribute to variability in cancer risk in human populations. Epidemiologists and volunteers at the American Cancer Society (ACS) were among the first to establish such cohorts, beginning in the early 1950s and continuing through the present, and these ACS cohorts have made landmark contributions in many areas of epidemiologic research. METHODS AND RESULTS: The Cancer Prevention Study II Nutrition Cohort was established in 1992 and was designed to investigate the relation between diet and other lifestyle factors and exposures and the risk of cancer, mortality, and survival. The cohort includes over 84,000 men and 97,000 women who completed a mailed questionnaire in 1992. New questionnaires are sent to surviving cohort members every other year to update exposure information and to ascertain new occurrences of cancer; a 90% response rate was achieved for follow-up questionnaires in 1997 and 1999. Reported cancers are verified through medical records, registry linkage, or death certificates. The cohort is followed actively for all cases of incident cancer and for all causes of death. Through a collaborative effort among ACS national and division staff, volunteers, and the American College of Surgeons, blood samples were collected from a subgroup of 40,000 cohort members and are in storage at a central repository for future investigation of dietary, hormonal, genetic, and other factors and cancer risk. Collection of DNA samples from buccal cells in an additional 50,000 cohort members is underway currently and will be completed in 2002. CONCLUSIONS: This new cohort of both men and women promises to be particularly valuable for the study of cancer occurrence, mortality, and survival as they relate to obesity and weight change, physical activity at various points in life, vitamin supplement use, exogenous hormone use, other medications (such as aspirin and nonsteroidal anti- inflammatory drugs) and cancer screening modalities.

Alcohol, folate, methionine, and risk of incident breast cancer in the American Cancer Society Cancer Prevention Study II Nutrition Cohort. (8/79)Recent studies suggest that the increased risk of breast cancer associated with alcohol consumption may be reduced by adequate folate intake. We examined this question among 66,561 postmenopausal women in the American Cancer Society Cancer Prevention Study II Nutrition Cohort. A total of 1,303 incident cases had accrued during the first 5 years of follow-up. Cox proportional hazards models and stratified analysis were used to examine the relationship between alcohol, dietary and total folate intake, multivitamin use, dietary methionine, and breast cancer. We observed an increasing risk of breast cancer with increasing alcohol consumption (P for trend = 0.01). In the highest category of consumption (15 or more grams of ethanol/day), the risk of breast cancer was 1.26 (95% confidence interval, 1.04-1.53) compared with nonusers. We observed this association with higher alcohol consumption for in situ, localized, and regional disease. We found no association between risk of breast cancer and dietary folate, total folate, multivitamin use, or methionine intake. Furthermore, we found no evidence of an interaction between levels of dietary folate (P for interaction = 0.10) or total folate (P for interaction = 0.61) and alcohol. Nor did we find evidence of an interaction between alcohol consumption and recent or long-term multivitamin use (P for interaction = 0.27). Our results are consistent with a positive association with alcohol but do not support an association with folate or methionine intake or an interaction between folate and alcohol intake on risk of breast cancer.

Cancer Prevention: What can I do?
Physical activity appears to be associated with cancer risk. Lower levels of physical activity are associated with higher cancer risk. The explanation for this association may primarily be physical activity contributes to maintenance of a healthy body weight. Additionally, physical activity may also be beneficial through helping to regulate sex hormones, insulin, and prostaglandins, and may promote positive effects on the immune system. A lifestyle that is physically active is also associated with a lower risk of heart disease and diabetes.. American Cancer Society Guidelines on Nutrition and Physical Activity for Cancer Prevention:. In an effort to help the general public and medical professionals develop strategies to reduce cancer risk, the American Cancer Society has published guidelines for diet, weight control, and physical activity.

A new study has found that long-duration regular use of aspirin or other nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs, such as ibuprofen) may be associated with a reduced risk of prostate cancer. Use of aspirin and other NSAIDs has been consistently associated with a reduced risk of colorectal cancer in epidemiological studies, and aspirin reduced risk of colorectal polyp recurrence in two randomized trials. There has also been some evidence from laboratory and epidemiological studies that NSAIDs might influence prostate carcinogenesis, although the association is unclear. To determine whether use of NSAIDs is associated with a reduced risk of prostate cancer, Eric J. Jacobs, Ph.D., of the American Cancer Society in Atlanta, and colleagues studied more than 70,000 men participating in the American Cancer Societys Cancer Prevention Study II Nutrition Cohort. During the follow-up from 1992 to 1993 through August 2001, 4,853 cases of prostate cancer were diagnosed among these men. Current use of ...

How you can get lung cancer, even if you dont smoke - Health
You dont have to smoke to get lung cancer.. In fact, as many as 20 percent of people with lung cancer have never smoked.. And many of those people are diagnosed with the disease when its at a stage where its incurable.. Cancer experts have set off some alarm bells after publishing a report in the Journal of the Royal Society of Medicine that states an increasing number of non-smokers are being diagnosed with lung cancer.. MOM FITTED WITH PACEMAKER AT 32 SAYS SHE DRANK 6 ENERGY DRINKS A DAY. The researchers reviewed a 30-year follow-up study of 1.2 million participants in the American Cancer Societys Cancer Prevention Study II. In it they found cases of lung cancer in nonsmokers were on the rise.. Lung cancer in nonsmokers is very similar to the lung cancer seen in smokers. Its a form of non-small cell lung cancer, a subtype called adenocarcinoma. Dr. John Maurice, a thoracic surgeon and lung cancer specialist at St. Joseph Hospital in California, told Healthline.. Although smoking is the ...
Recreational Physical Activity and Leisure-Time Sitting in Relation to Postmenopausal Breast Cancer Risk | Cancer Epidemiology,...
Epidemiologic evidence supports an inverse association between physical activity and postmenopausal breast cancer. Whether associations exist for moderate activities, such as walking, and whether associations differ by estrogen receptor (ER) status, body mass index (BMI, kg/m2), adult weight gain, or use of postmenopausal hormones (PMH) is unclear. The relation between time spent sitting and breast cancer also is unclear. Among 73,615 postmenopausal women in the American Cancer Society Cancer Prevention Study II Nutrition Cohort, 4,760 women were diagnosed with breast cancer between 1992 and 2009. Extended Cox regression was used to estimate multivariable-adjusted relative risks (RR) of breast cancer in relation to total recreational physical activity, walking, and leisure-time sitting. Differences in associations by ER status, BMI, weight gain, and PMH use were also evaluated. The most active women (those reporting ,42 MET-hours/week physical activity) experienced 25% lower risk of breast ...

The new ACS report describes numbers for cancer incidence, deaths, and survival through 2015 [1,2]. These latest figures permit comparison to corresponding measurements for many previous years, and allow predictions to be made for 2016. Several brief discussions about what these figures reveal now are available [e.g., 3-5].. The cancer death rate for men and women fell 23% in the 21 year period from 1991 to 2012 (the latest year for which complete data are available). This progress should be welcomed by everyone! Death from cancer still is second to heart disease for the entire US, but in 21 states it now has become the ...

American Cancer Society Statement On Senator Ted Kennedy | EmaxHealth
At this time there are no blood tests or other screening exams that can be used routinely to detect brain tumors before they start to cause symptoms. These tumors usually come to light as a result of signs or symptoms the person is having. In most cases, the patients survival is determined by their age, the type of tumor, and its location.. The American Cancer Society combines an unyielding passion with nearly a century of experience to save lives and end suffering from cancer. As a global grassroots force of more than three million volunteers, we fight for every birthday threatened by every cancer in every community. We save lives by helping people stay well by preventing cancer or detecting it early; helping people get well by being there for them during and after a cancer diagnosis; by finding cures through investment in groundbreaking discovery; and by fighting back by rallying lawmakers to pass laws to defeat cancer and by rallying communities worldwide to join the fight. As the nations ...

American Cancer Society Text Book of Clinical Oncology | Annals of Internal Medicine | American College of Physicians
For me, as a medical student and house officer, one of the best sources of information about cancer was the American Cancer Societys Clinical Oncology textbook. Although never professing to provide a comprehensive discussion, its concise chapters were immediately accessible and germane. Despite the fact that the last edition of this book was published almost a decade ago, Clinical Oncology still occupies a well-used space on my bookshelf. Since the last publication of this book, oncology has undergone a considerable metamorphosis. Beyond the advent of new therapeutic and diagnostic tools, the number of oncology textbooks available has grown considerably. With ...

Primal Wisdom: December 2009
Adequate scientific evidence to stop mass screening programs, such as mammography, has been readily available for more than three decades. In 1976 Pietro M. Gullino presented his findings on the natural history of cancer, showing early detection is really late detection, at the Conference on Breast Cancer: A Report to the Profession, sponsored by the White House, the National Cancer Institute, and the American Cancer Society. He explained: If the time required for a tumor to double its diameter during a known period of time is taken as a measure of growth rate, one can calculate by extrapolation that two-thirds of the duration of a breast cancer remains undetectable by the patient or physician. Long before a breast carcinoma can be detected by present technology, metastatic spread may occur and does in most cases. This report was subsequently published in the journal representing the American Cancer Society (Cancer 1977 Jun;39(6 Suppl):2697-703 ...
American Cancer Society Recommends HPV Test for Cervical Cancer Screening - AHealthyMe - Blue Cross Blue Shield of Massachusetts
THURSDAY, July 30, 2020 (HealthDay News) -- An updated guideline from the American Cancer Society calls for more simplified cervical cancer screening, administered less often.. The new guideline calls for an initial cervix screening at age 25, followed by the human papillomavirus (HPV) test every five years, continuing through age 65, the guideline says. These streamlined recommendations can improve compliance and reduce potential harms, said Debbie Saslow, a managing director at the American Cancer Society. They are made possible by some important developments that have allowed us to transform our approach to cervical cancer screening, primarily a deeper understanding of the role of HPV and the development of tools to address it. Nearly all cervical cancer is caused by strains of HPV. The HPV test is more accurate than the Pap test and can be done less often, the ACS said. Until all labs transition to the new standard of primary HPV testing, the guideline says HPV tests can be used in ...

Alex Constantines Blacklist: American Cancer Society: This Carcinogenic World According to Elmer Bobst
According to his autobiography (Bobst: autobiography of a pharmaceutical pioneer, 1973), Bobst was doing war bond work in 1945 when Governor Walte Edge, of New Jersey, and Eric Johnson, the czar of the motion picture industry, came to see me on behalf of the American Cancer society.... It had been run like a small mom and pop business, content to putter along with limited results.... My first step was to enlist the support of the strong team that had volunteered to help with the bond sales, because I knew them and I knew their capabilities. [Besides, with the war ending, he could hijack them to serve his purposes - cast] Without letting them know the reason, I invited all of my county bond chairmen and some other people of importance -- about thirty in all -- to join me for cocktails and dinner at a club. We enjoyed a convivial evening and a good dinner before I got up to reveal the purpose of the meeting. I explained, then, that I was about to undertake a mission -- a spiritual crusade to save ...

New guideline addresses long-term needs of head and neck cancer survivors - Scienmag: Latest Science and Health News
The guideline was developed in response to the need for guidance on how best to care for the growing number of head and neck cancer survivors who potentially face both acute and chronic disability, write the authors. Head and neck cancer survivors should be provided with timely and appropriate support and referral to address physical, psychosocial, and practical effects after treatment. The guideline is the fourth in a series of cancer survivorship care guidelines from the American Cancer Society to provide primary care and other clinicians who care for cancer survivors with clinical follow-up care recommendations on how to provide comprehensive cancer survivorship care to adult posttreatment cancer survivors as they transition from treatment to long-term survivorship, with a goal of improving care and health and quality of life of cancer survivors. The American Cancer Society has survivorship guidelines to address the cancer survivorship care needs of survivors of prostate, colorectal, and ...

Follow-up of a Large Prospective United States Cohort by Linkage with Multiple State Cancer Registries
American Cancer Society (NAACCR Member). A validation study was conducted to compare verified self-reports of cancer diagnoses to information in population based cancer registries. Results demonstrate that linkage with the nationwide network of state cancer registries can be a highly sensitive method of identifying diagnoses of most types of cancer among participants in large nationwide research studies.. For the study, registry staff at 23 state cancer registries conducted standardized linkages with a subset of participants in Cancer Prevention Study 3 (CPS-3), a relatively new American Cancer Society (ACS) study including over 300,000 cancer-free U.S. men and women enrolled in 35 states, the District of Columbia and Puerto Rico. ACS researchers plan to follow CPS-3 participants through linkage with state cancer registries for at least 20 years in order to study how a wide range of lifestyle, nutritional, medical, genetic, environmental, and other factors are related to risk of cancer.

ASPPH | UNC: Most Breast Cancer Patients May Not Be Getting Enough Exercise
Physical activity after breast cancer diagnosis has been linked with prolonged survival and improved quality of life, but most participants in a large breast cancer study did not meet national physical activity guidelines after they were diagnosed. Moreover, African-American women were less likely to meet the guidelines than were White women.. Published online in Cancer, a peer-reviewed journal of the American Cancer Society, the findings indicate that efforts to promote physical activity in breast cancer patients may need to be significantly enhanced.. The study, Racial differences in physical activity among breast cancer survivors: implications for breast cancer care, was led by Ms. Brionna Hair, epidemiology doctoral student at the University of North Carolina Gillings School of Global Public Health.. The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services and the American Cancer Society recommend that adults engage weekly in at least 150 minutes of moderate-intensity physical activity or 75 ...

Lets hope for change in Wisconsin!. Here in Canada, only one province has yet to commit to creating a population-based screening program- Newfoundland. Quebec is still working on its pilot program, and PEIs launched recently. The CCAC continues to advocate for equal access to screening and treatment options for all provinces..

The strike in the Cancer Society is over - nurses rejoice - Norway Today
The Norwegian Nurses Associations (NSF) and NHO Abelia agree on a new collective agreement. Thus, Norways longest nurse strike is over.. - It has been a long and necessary strike to get an agreement and we are pleased that we got through in the end, says federal leader in NSF, Eli Gunhild By.. - It was important for us that the nurses in the Cancer Society should retain their pay and working conditions after the transition to NHO. Weve got this. We have secured our members the right to strike in the agreement and minimum wage rates that follow the level for nurses in the industry, she continues.. When the Cancer Society went from the employers association Virke to NHO Abelia, the nurses were considered to be functionaries and thus lost the collective agreement they had as nurses. Nurses thought the new agreement meant loss of both a right to strike and minimum wage rates and actioned to keep the previous agreement..

ASCO Publishes Breast Cancer Survivorship Guidelines
The American Society of Clinical Oncology (ASCO), in collaboration with the American Cancer Society (ACS), have released updated guidelines regarding follow-up care for breast cancer survivors. The updated guidelines were recently published in the Journal of Clinical Oncology.. There is an estimated 3.1 million breast cancer survivors alive today in the United States. At present, 90% of patients diagnosed with breast cancer in the U.S. will be alive 5 years following their diagnosis. As such, it is imperative to address issues that are unique to breast cancer survivors to improve their quality of life and enable them to remain an integral part of society.. Treatment for breast cancer varies considerably, and is dependent upon the type of breast cancer, the extent of its spread, patients risk factors, and a patients age.. Each different type of treatment is associated with an increased risk of specific long-term issues. Therefore, guidelines specifying follow-up for breast cancer survivors is ...
Prospective Study of Occupation and Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis Mortality : American Journal of Epidemiology - oi
Occupational exposures are suspected of contributing to the risk of amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), but results of epidemiologic studies have been inconsistent. The authors prospectively assessed the relation between occupation and ALS mortality among more than 1 million participants in the Cancer Prevention Study II of the American Cancer Society. Follow-up from 1989 through 2002 identified 507 ALS deaths among men and 430 among women. Adjusted rate ratios were calculated by using Mantel-Haenszel weights and Cox proportional hazards. Among men, elevated ALS mortality was found for programmers (rate ratio = 4.55, 95% confidence interval: 1.46, 14.2; p = 0.009) and laboratory technicians (rate ratio = 1.96, 95% confidence interval: 1.04, 3.66; p = 0.04).

Report on Cancer Survivors Highlights Role of Physical Activity in Regaining, Improving Health
Physical activity and other healthy behaviors can hasten recovery from the immediate side effects of cancer treatment, prevent long-term effects, and may reduce the risk of recurrence and increase sur-vival, says a first-ever report by the American Cancer Society (ACS) that tracks the growing population of cancer survivors in the United States.

The number will grow to almost 18 million by 2022. The 3 most common cancers among male survivors are prostate cancer (43%), colon and rectal cancer (9%), and melanoma skin cancer (7%). The 3 most common cancers among female survivors are breast cancer (41%), uterine cancer (8%), and colon and rectal cancer (8%). Those percentages are expected to stay roughly the same through 2022.. The report also finds that 45% of cancer survivors are 70 years old or older, and only 5% are younger than 40. The ...
