Breast cancer prevention advice: filtering the good from the bad

October 7, 2010 by  
Filed under CANCER

There is a whole lot of medical advice out there on how to prevent breast cancer. When I googled the phrase “breast cancer prevention”, I got “about 6,830,000 results. That is quite a lot of pages to read. And I’m pretty sure these pages will contain confusing, conflicting and misleading information.

The MD Anderson Cancer Center gives us “Your Guide to Cancer Prevention Headlines” to help us filter the “the good from the bad.”

The main idea is to be discriminate and not believe everything that you read (not even in this blog!). Instead, do you own research and dig.

Who?

Check out the source. To find the source, MD Anderson recommends asking the following questions:

Here at Battling for Health, I try to point you to the original source on which I based my post. Just click on the hyperlink.

If you want to go back to the original published medical article, you can search in Pub Med www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/. There you will find the abstracts of the original paper or sometimes even the whole article itself.

How?

Find out how the test was done, MD Anderson recommends. Sometimes new developments are reported to the public prematurely with too much hype before they have been thorough tested and proven to be effective.

How a study was done determines the reliability of the results.

The rule of thumb is that human studies are more reliable than animal studies. In human studies, a prospective study gives more reliable data than a retrospective study and the larger the number of study participants, and the longer the follow-up time, the better.

Finally, the gold standard for a study design of a clinical trial is a randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled. This type of study gives the best data quality and high level of evidence.

Talk to your doctor

Discuss what you have read and researched with a health professional. And do not start anything new without first talking to your doctor.

MD Anderson’s parting shot is as follows:

“Gather as much information as you can before starting anything new. There’s a lot to be said for the words “be wise, be well.”

Update on the swine/Mexican flu epidemic

April 30, 2009 by  
Filed under HEALTHCARE

The pandemic alert level of 5 out of a 6-point scale has been declared by the World Health Organization with regards to the swine or Mexican flu. The flu which was originally reported in Mexico has spread in the North American continent to infect people in the United States (91) and Canada (13). The first fatal case in the US was reported on Wednesday, 29 April in Texas.

In Europe and the rest of the world, the following confirmed cases have been reported on 30 April 2009, 08:00 CEST.

  • Austria (1)
  • Costa Rica (2)
  • Germany (3)
  • Israel (2)
  • New Zealand (14)
  • Peru (1)
  • Spain (10)
  • United Kingdom (5)

As of noon today, 30 April 2009, Switzerland announced its first confirmed case.

The rapidity of how the virus “jumped” continents is largely attributed to the ease of global travel nowadays. Almost all confirmed cases outside North America have been in Mexico recently.

It is very easy to get confused about all the reports coming different sectors, be it from the media, from health authorities to conspiracy theorists.

To keep yourself updated, check put the following recommended sites:

The Centers for Disease Prevention and Control (CDC). The CDC has done/is doing the following:

  • implemented its emergency response and released part of its stockpile of medications for use.
  • issued new interim guidance for doctors on how to care for children and pregnant women who might get infected.
  • gives regular updates

The European Centre for Disease Prevention and Control (ECDC) is issuing updates for Europe.

The World Health Organization (WHO) has done/is doing the following:

  • coordinates with health officials of different countries to facilitate reporting and monitoring
  • issues alerts and updates

Some useful and practical info to prepare yourself (aside from what the aforementioned sites can give you) can be found at WedMD:

Cancer Sites in Cyberspace

July 31, 2008 by  
Filed under CANCER

These cancer sites may not be news to you but they are to me and I like to share when I find something new and different.

Cancer . com, has a great interactive site. Almost eerily interactive as three speakers chat it up with you and follow you around the site.

You can personalize your homepage according to whether you are recently diagnosed, undergoing treatment or are a caregiver. Each of the hosts will give you their personal story as well.

It’s a very cool and VERY informative site. My only complaint is it took me eight tries to create a password and my own homepage.

Know your heart(y) advocacy groups and information sources

June 30, 2008 by  
Filed under HEART AND STROKE

A recent survey by the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ) showed 46% of Americans have basic or below basic level of health literacy. I am sure that many countries in the world have the same health literacy problems.

When in doubt, where do you turn to for health information? To your health care provider, of course.

However, for those who would like to do some home study and read more, I have prepared a list of website resources by medical professionals and advocacy groups. These sites provide invaluable information for medical professionals, patients, and consumers.

In the US:

American Heart Association (AHA)

The AHA is probably the oldest and most well-known heart health advocacy group in the world. It has its headquarters in Dallas, Texas and has nine affiliate offices in the US and its territories.

It all started with a group of doctors and social workers who formed the Association for the Prevention and Relief of Heart Disease in 1915 in New York City. That was a time when there was limited information about heart diseases. Similar groups were formed all over the US. Several people saw a need for national platform through which medical professionals can exchange knowledge and research findings.

The AHA was formally founded by 6 cardiologists in 1924.

Their goal was to improve public and medical awareness during a time of “almost unbelievable ignorance about heart disease.”

The association has since grown in size, supported by medical and non-medical members and volunteers. It has continued to be an advocate for the American public, especially children.

The main driving force of AHA is to provide “credible heart disease and stroke information for effective prevention and treatment.”

AHA regularly organizes health awareness programs and fund raising drives. In addition, it uses the Internet and all the tools it can offer to disseminate information, increase awareness, and step up on prevention of cardiovascular disease. Check out some of their programs:

HeartHub for Patients

Go Red for Women Heart Style Guide

FIT Kids Photo Petition

Sudden Cardiac Arrest Association (SCAA)

The SCAA is a non-profit organization founded in 2005 and is singularly focused on sudden cardiac arrest.

SCAA’s mission is “to prevent loss of life from Sudden Cardiac Arrest.” Its vision is to eliminate preventable deaths from Sudden Cardiac Arrest by 2020.

One of SCAA’s major projects is broadening the deployment of automated external defibrillators (AEDs), when it affiliated the Iowa advocacy group AED Access for All.

Heart Rhythm Society (HRS) and Heart Rhythm Foundation (HRF)

Founded in 1979, HRS is a society of over 4800 medical professionals with the main focus on cardiac arrhythmia or heart rhythm disorders. Its motto is “restoring the rhythm of life.” It works closely with the Heart Rhythm Foundation (HRF). HRF’s mission is

“to enhance the prevention and treatment of cardiac rhythm disorders by supporting the research, education and advocacy efforts of the Heart Rhythm Society.”

Sudden Cardiac Arrest Foundation (SCAF)

SCAF’s mission is to prevent death and disability from sudden cardiac arrest and increase awareness. Its specific aims are:

In order to reach these goals, the foundation offers the following training as part of their education program:

American Stroke Association (ASA)

ASA is a division of the AHA and is focusing primarily on stroke awareness and prevention. Its specific goal is “to reduce stroke and risk by 25 percent by 2010.”

Together with AHA, ASA regularly organizes events and educational programs locally. You can check what’s happening near you at local.strokeassociation.org/. One of ASA’s stroke awareness programs is Power To End Stroke, a campaign directed at African Americans, the ethnic group in the US with the highest risk for stroke.

Outside the US:

Heart and Stroke Foundation (HSF) of Canada

HSF Canada is a volunteer-based health charity organization consisting of 10 provincial foundations. It works towards

“eliminating heart disease and stroke and reducing their impact through the advancement of research and its application, the promotion of healthy living and advocacy.”

British Heart Foundation (BHF)

BHF aims for “a world in which people do not die prematurely of heart disease.” And they want to achieve this by research, prevention drives, and fighting for quality health care and support for heart patients.

Children’s Heart Association (CHA)

CHA was formerly called The Association for Children with Heart Disorders and advocates for the welfare of children with congenital heart disease. It runs support groups for family and friends of these young cardiac patients.

Other advocacy groups for children are Children’s Heart Federation, and HeartLine.

There are many more advocacy groups out there and I am sorry that I cannot cover all of them. All with the common aim of helping heart patients, promoting awareness and stepping up prevention. They are an invaluable source of information for health professionals as well as for patients. Most of these groups are dependent on volunteers and donations to go on with their work.

If you have the time and the money to share, this is the way to go – volunteer or donate (or both) to a heart(y) group of your choice and help save lives.
