Cancer media coverage: realistic or overly optimistic?

March 22, 2010 by  
Filed under CANCER

Are we viewing cancer through rose-colored glasses? Is the media giving us a rather overly optimistic picture of cancer?

Cancer is a hot topic nowadays. Statistics indicate that 1 in 2 men and 1 in 3 women will be diagnosed with cancer during their lifetime. Everybody knows at least 1 person diagnose with cancer. Strange and sad as it may sound, cancer has become so widespread that it has almost become a household word. Cancer, therefore, is a very timely topic to write about that would interest a lot of readers.

A group of researchers at the University of Pennsylvania, Philadelphia looked at media coverage of cancer between 2005 and 2007by 8 major American newspapers. A total of 2,228 articles were retrieved and from these, a random subsample of 436 articles was analyzed based on the topics covered.

The analysis revealed that certain types of cancer get more attention than others

  • 35. 1% of articles focused on breast cancer
  • 14.9% focused on prostate cancer
  • 20% focused on cancer in general.

In terms of survival and death, the articles tended to focus more on the former than the latter.

  • 32.1% focused on survivorship
  • 7.6% focused on cancer victims who died
  • 2.3% focused on both survival and death.

The authors wrote:

“It is surprising that few articles discuss death and dying considering that half of all patients diagnosed as having cancer will not survive. The findings are also surprising given that scientists, media critics and the lay public repeatedly criticize the news for focusing on death.”

Articles dealing with treatments also tended to focus on the positive side.

  • 13.1% of articles reported about incurable cancers as well as aggressive cancer treatments that fail to extend life or cure the disease
  • 30% mentioned about the side effects associated with cancer treatments, such as nausea, pain or hair loss.
  • 57.1 % discussed aggressive treatments exclusively
  • 0.5 % looked at end-of-life care for the terminally ill
  • 2.5 percent% discussed both aggressive treatments and end-of-life care

The authors believe that there is a knowledge gap among the public in terms of palliative care and hospice facilities which the media need to cater to. Such information can help can help patients “make decisions that realistically reflect their prognosis and the risks and potential benefits of treatment.”

The authors concluded:

“How often should the news media discuss treatment failure, adverse events, end-of-life care and death and dying? Although there is no quantifiable answer, the same educational goals that ideally drive news coverage of cancer treatment and survival should also compel news organizations to address these topics. The media routinely report about aggressive treatment and survival presumably because cancer news coverage is relevant to a large portion of the population, and, for the same reason, similar attention should be devoted to the alternatives.”

Battling stroke by fighting salt: the Portuguese strategy

June 23, 2009 by  
Filed under HEART AND STROKE

saltPortugal has one of the highest mortality rates due to stroke in Western Europe and this has been attributed to the high salt intake of the population. Many Portuguese traditional food – including the salted fish delicacy bacalhau (salted cod) – contains high amounts of sodium chloride. However, even the normal daily fare such as bread also contains a lot of salt. The result is that the Portuguese population, take in, on the average, twice the amount of the recommended daily salt intake. -the stroke rate there is twice that of coronary disease.

A group of health led by Dr. Luis Martin of the Fernando Pessoa University formed the Portuguese Action Against Salt and Hypertension (PAASH) and conducted studies on Portuguese salt consumption habits and the health consequences. The results show that:

  • An adult consumes on average 11.9 g of sodium per day, two times the recommended daily intake.
  • Portuguese bread contains an average of 19.2 g of sodium per kg, which is 53% more than what is found in bread in other European countries. This highly contributes (21%) to the daily sodium intake.
  • The amount of salt by consumed by the population correlated with blood pressure and aortic stiffness.
  • In 2007, only 29% of the Portuguese population was aware of the health risks of excessive salt consumption

The PAASH advocates saw an immediate need for action to increase awareness and reduce salt consumption. They estimated that “a reduction of just 1 g per day of salt intake would save almost 2500 lives per year in Portugal, which has a population of around 10 million.”

Dr. Martin then started a massive awareness campaign in print and web media, as well as on on radio and TV. They persuaded politicians and well-known celebrities, including star football players and children’s cartoon characters, to help spread the word about the health risks of salt.

Dr. Martin explains the success of

“If they want to influence the people, they must act like politicians. And to get the attention of the politicians, we needed the media. Without the media in Portugal, it’s not possible.”

It seems that the campaign is starting to bear fruit.

  • A recent survey showed that awareness has increased up to 75% of the population.
  • They persuaded the Portuguese Bakery Association to cooperate by coming up with a recipe that provides for lower salt content without losing taste or quality.
  • They lobbied with legislators, resulting in the passing of a law by the Portuguese Parliament that requires food labels to show salt content of food products as well as and limits the sodium content in processed foods to a maximum of 14 g/kg.

With these results, the Portuguese has set a good example to the rest of Europe and the world that health awareness campaigns do work.
