Based on the lack of scientific evidence, there is no conclusive data which says secondhand smoke causes cancer. Over the past few years, the secondhand smoke debate has been discussed and debated endlessly. Here in Ontario Canada, the government just implemented legislation to ban people from smoking in all public places including bars and restaurants. The new tobacco control legislation, called the Smoke-Free Ontario Act, as well as banning people from smoking in public places, prohibits smokers from smoking at their work place as well.
Similar legislation has also been implemented throughout many parts of United States
There have been dozens of scientific studies linking secondhand to everything from asthma to heart disease. Yet the biggest and most controversial “affect” of secondhand smoke has been its link to cancer. But is there scientific proof that secondhand smoke actually causes cancer in non-smokers? The short answer, no.
One of the most widely used studies on the effects of secondhand smoke was done by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) in a report titled Respiratory Health Effects of Passive Smoke: Lung Cancer and Other Disorders, published in 1992. Based on information at that time, the reported concluded that secondhand smoke is responsible for 3,000 deaths of non smokers each year. Yet by 1998 a U.S. federal court found that the EPA demonstrated no link between secondhand smoke and cancer. Even more so, the court found that the EPA “...’cherry picked’ it’s data,’ to reach their predetermined conclusion. In other words, they lied.
And yet even after a federal court deemed the report to be complexly wrong, organizations such as the American Cancer Society and the American Lung Association still use the EPA study as their primary source to prove that secondhand smoke causes cancer. Even on the Health Canada website in a report titled Protection from Second-hand Smoke in Ontario: A Review of Evidence Regarding Best Practices, the main source of “data” comes from the very same EPA study that was thrown out by a federal court. Yet this review was used as proof that secondhand smoke causes cancer and therefor should be banned by stating “all involuntary exposure to tobacco smoke is harmful and should eliminated.”
So even with a study which came to a conclusion based on scanty data, and predetermined conclusions, places like Ontario have caved to political and public pressure banning smoking in work and public places to reduce the risk of cancer caused by secondhand smoke. In a study published in the May 17 2003 issue of the British Medical Journal, researchers found no link between secondhand smoke and lung cancer.
"We found no measurable effect from being exposed to secondhand smoke and an increased risk of heart disease or lung cancer in nonsmokers -- not at any time or at any level," lead researcher James Enstrom, PhD, MPH, of the UCLA School of Public Health, tells WebMD. "The only thing we did find, which was not reported in the study, is that nonsmokers who live with smokers have a increased risk of widowhood because their smoking spouses do die prematurely." Although the study was “discredited” by many for various reasons, it is still an interesting contrast to previous findings.
In another study published in 1997 by the British Medical Journal titled The accumulated evidence on lung cancer and environmental tobacco smoke, researches concluded that “breathing other people's tobacco smoke is a cause of lung cancer” They reached this conclusion by examining spouses who lived with a smoker over a long period of time and who were “constantly” exposed to secondhand smoke. And in respect to smoking at work the study noted that, “workplace exposure varies considerably and is difficult to measure.” So according to this particular study, although a link to secondhand smoke and cancer is significant, there is no data to support wether the amount of secondhand smoke at the workplace is harmful - which is a main issue for the Ontario legislation.
Ultimately most people will agree that smoking is bad for you but so is eating a bucket of fried chicken. The problem is that these reports say that secondhand smoke “causes” cancer. In an editorial titled Smoking Does Not Cause Lung Cancer, published in the October 1999 issues of the Journal of Theoretics author By: James P. Siepmann, MD said that there are many constituting factors to cancer, but none are responsible for “causing” the disease “The process of developing cancer is complex and multifactorial.
It involves genetics, the immune system, cellular irritation, DNA alteration, dose and duration of exposure, and much more. Some of the known risk factors include genetics asbestos exposure, sex, HIV status, vitamin deficiency, diet pollution , shipbuilding and even just plain old being lazy. When some of these factors are combined they can have a synergistic effect, but none of these risk factors are directly and independently responsible for "causing" lung cancer” As Siepmann points out in his editorial if these reports said that secondhand smoke “increases the risk of developing cancer” than perhaps that would be a little easier to swallow. But to say that secondhand smoke causes cancer has no concrete scientific merit.
Health Canada even says that they have no idea how much secondhand smoke is considered harmful “No scientific authority or regulatory health body in the world has established a safe level of exposure to second-hand smoke.” And yet legislation was still passed. Many will argue that banning smoking is a threat to our civil liberties. Another serious epidemic in this country and many other parts of the world for that matter is obesity. Should we ban people from eating cake, or asking for a second helping? No, of course not. So why is it ok for the government to tell you where to smoke? There is little doubt that the 50 are so chemicals found in secondhand smoke are harmful to some degree, but to influence people and create laws based on data which was proven to be inaccurate, is simply too big to ignore.
Perhaps Dr. Siepmann put it best when he said, “We must weigh the risk and benefits of the behavior both as a society and as an individual based on unbiased information. Be warned though, that a society that attempts to remove all risk terminates individual liberty and will ultimately perish. Let us be logical in our endeavors and true in our pursuit of knowledge.”
As always, before you attempt to self medicate or try a new health regimen or program we suggest you retain the services of a qualified health care professional.
Prostate Cancer Test and The Survival Rates of Those Who Had Surgery for Prostate Cancer
Efficacy of the PSA test Approximately one man in six will be diagnosed with prostate cancer during his lifetime, and over 200,000 men in the US are diagnosed with prostate cancer annually. Since the widespread adoption of PSA testing, about 60-70% of men at risk in the US have had a blood test for prostate cancer. As a result, prostate cancer death rates have decreased, yet only slightly. Thirty thousand men still die each year from this disease. PSA testing fails to identify a small but significant proportion of aggressive cancers, and only about 30% of men with a ¡°positive¡± PSA have a positive biopsy.
This follows earlier reports that radical surgery for prostate cancer also tends to spread the disease. After 23 years, since the first randomized clinical trials for any type of cancer, it has been found that there is no difference in the survival rates of those prostate cancer patients who had surgery and controls who did not. Those who had surgery suffered increased morbidity effects such as impotence or incontinence. Interpreting statistics for prostate cancer intervention. A recent paper reporting on the result of a randomized trial comparing Radical Prostatectomy with Watchful Waiting for prostate cancer appeared to contain serious flaws. For example, it used an ambiguous definition of ¡°death from prostate cancer¡± and claimed a 50% reduction in mortality using surgery as compared with watchful waiting. The reduction in overall mortality was not significant.
Smart consumers know their rights and act on them. Information is the best defense against purchasing defective products or falling victim to fraudulent practices. Learn more about Advanced Cancer Treatments please visit http://www.advancedcancertreatments.com Similarly, a paper reporting on results of a randomized trials comparing mortality after PSA screening with an unscreened control group also contained serious flaws. Although its authors claimed a 69% reduction of deaths due to screening, they arrived at this figure by comparing only 23% of those invited for screening in the Invited group with 93.5% of those in the Uninvited group. This was a meaningless comparison in randomized trials.

The information contained in this article is not intended as medical advice, nor to replace the expertise and judgment of a physician or cancer care team. It is intended to help individuals and families make informed decisions, together with their doctor. A diagnosis of liver cancer can evoke fear in any individual. As is the case with any health concern, the more information learned about the condition, the more that fear is quelled. Recent research and development into liver cancer has broadened an affected person's options by unveiling portions of its pathology, increasing treatment specificity and instilling hope where there previously was little.
Additionally, of men who were treated for prostate cancer, about 25% require additional treatment, presumably due to disease recurrence. Also of concern is the growing evidence that treatments may not be necessary. Very long-term studies from the US and Europe, following men with prostate cancer, have found that some tumors do not progress over time. In these individuals, prostate cancer treatment is unnecessary, if not harmful. As these men do not benefit from treatment, they are actually at risk of treatment-related side effects and complications. There is no difference in the survival rates of those who had surgery for prostate cancer and controls who did not.
Treatment Basics The goal of treatment will vary depending on the characteristics of each person's cancer. If the cancer can't be cured, the goal may be to remove or destroy as much as possible to prevent or prolong its growth, spread or return. Other approaches to incurable cancers are treatment strategies aimed solely at easing symptoms. Choosing the best way to treat or manage cancer can seem like a crash course in oncology. While it may feel like a quick decision needs to be made, sufficient time to absorb all of the possible options and communicating with all of those involved in your care are important components to making the choice that best suits you.
When making a decision regarding liver cancer treatment, include seeking a second opinion from a physician experienced in your specific diagnosis. A second opinion will provide you with more information and help you feel more confident about the treatment plan being considered. Some insurance companies even require a second opinion before they agreeing to pay for certain treatments, and most will pay for that second opinion.
The lack of consensus regarding the best treatment of liver cancer has contributed to the pessimistic attitude that many have regarding its treatment. Aggressive treatment strategies can cure or significantly prolong the life of many people with liver cancer.
Many types of treatment for liver cancer now exist, including surgery, radiation therapy, ablation therapy, gene therapy and chemotherapy. An integrated approach using a combination of two or more of these methods often provides optimal results. A thorough evaluation with the appropriate specialist will determine a person's suitability for the recommended therapy.
Treatment Specifics Surgery
- Even after 80% of the liver is surgically removed, this resilient organ can regenerate, growing back to its original size in about three weeks. Although surgery is currently the only way to potentially cure liver cancer, newer techniques are being developed to make both partial removal of the liver (resection) and liver transplantation, safer and more effective.
Some advances in surgery for liver cancer include:
· Laparoscopic surgery - small incisions are made in the abdomen through which specially designed instruments are inserted to view and cut out the diseased portion of the liver.
· Pre-operative portal vein embolization
- this technique stimulates liver regeneration prior to surgery. By shifting the hepatic blood supply to a healthy portion of the liver prior to the resection, the healthy part of the liver grows larger. Recovery from a liver resection is more successful when performed with a sufficiently sized portion of healthy liver tissue.
· Liver transplant
- this option is reserved for those with several small tumors but whose cancer cannot be removed entirely. Patients must typically wait a long time before a suitable liver can be found. Doctors are studying ways to make more liver cancers operable by trying to shrink them prior to surgery. Studies are now looking at different types of neoadjuvant therapies (therapies given prior to surgery), including chemotherapy, immunotherapy, embolization, and radiation therapy. For those who are not surgical candidates, other options are becoming increasingly available.
- Radiation therapy uses high-energy rays (such as x-rays) to kill or shrink cancer cells. Radiation therapy's primary drawback is that it also damages healthy liver tissue. Researchers are working on new methods of specificity in order to deliver radiation therapy only to the cancer, sparing the normal tissue.
Three of the newer approaches to radiation therapy include:
- injecting drugs into the hepatic artery that make cancers more vulnerable to radiation.
- involves infusing radioactive substances directly into the hepatic artery to affect liver tumors more precisely.
· Computer mapping
- uses computers to map the exact location of a tumor. This lowers the damage to normal tissue and allows higher doses to be used.
- Ablation uses a chemical agent or electrical current to destroy a tumor. Ablative procedures include:
- freezes and kills tumor cells.
· Radiofrequency (RF) ablation
- radio waves heat the tumor to high temperatures to destroy cancerous cells.
· Alcohol ablation
- administers toxins directly to a tumor.
- blocks the blood supply to a tumor.
Ablation therapies can be very effective, but are typically intended to control cancer rather than cure it. They can be used alone or in combination with surgical removal of a tumor. For example, a patient with HCC who is not a candidate for surgery may first be treated with embolization to shrink the tumor so that it is small enough to make another form of ablative therapy or surgery possible. Controlling and minimizing cancer growth is the premier objective at many top cancer treatment centers. At Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center in New York City, physicians are currently investigating the use of the Asian herbal formula, Sho-saiko-to, on patients who have undergone hepatic artery embolization.
- In hope of developing gene therapies for defective DNA replacement, scientists are learning more about many of the genes damaged when normal liver cells convert to HCC. The p53 gene is a tumor suppressor gene that is often altered in liver cancers. In normal liver cells, p53 prevents excessive growth, helps cells repair DNA damage and promotes the death of cells with DNA damage beyond repair. Clinical trials are in progress to determine if restoring normal p53 DNA to liver cancer cells might suppress tumor growth and cause cancer cells to die.
- Primarily intended to slow cancer growth, chemotherapy is the intravenous administration of potent drugs. Much research is underway to discover effective and well-tolerated chemotherapeutic drugs against primary liver cancer.
Two areas of interest include:
· Hepatic artery chemoinfusion -
researchers are attempting to improve chemotherapy effectiveness by administering medication directly into the hepatic artery. This way, the liver's healthy portion has a greater chance of removing the unused drug before it can reach other parts of the body.
· Monoclonal antibodies
- these substances belong to a new class of anti-cancer drugs showing great promise against liver cancer. Monoclonal antibodies work against the sprouting of new blood vessels that nourish tumors, inhibiting cancer growth without damaging healthy tissue.These powerful antibodies bolster the effect of chemotherapy regimens.
Never Give up Hope Liver cancer research is reaching levels never before seen. Scientists are searching for the causes of liver cancer, ways to prevent it and new treatments to improve its outcome. The increased specificity and specialized knowledge surfacing in liver care is resulting in an increasing number of hepatologists functioning within highly skilled oncology teams. Patients benefit immensely from these team members' increased understanding of liver function and pathology, as well as their intense focus on liver disease.
Complementing this expertise is the surge of inventive, extremely useful, high-tech surgical devices, advanced radiology equipment and ultra-modern chemotherapy. All of this progress has greatly facilitated safer performance of increasingly aggressive liver treatments and made it possible to offer therapy to even more liver cancer patients. Participating in the decision-making process translates to taking an active role in your own care. Find out how the new aggressive treatment strategies may benefit you. Educate yourself on all of your options, seek a second opinion, find practitioners whom you can communicate with and trust and most importantly, be inspired by medicine's progress by not giving up hope.

Practical Spirituality—Cancer a New Lease on Life
There’s nothing worse then trying to exercise, eat right, watch your fat intake and control your blood pressure, only to be diagnosed with cancer. Cancer always seems to invade our lives suddenly, from out of the blue. In some people’s family there is a history of cancer. They partially expect it, but it is still a shock. For others, there is no history. There is no marker or rhyme or reason for them to be struck down with such an illness. How does one handle it when it happens?
Of course the first step is to wonder. What does this mean? Why is this happening to me? One begins to wonder about God and the universe, or if stress or negativity has caused it to happen. One begins to look at alternative medicine cures, while at the same time one is fighting off loving relatives who don’t actually respect one’s point of view and wants him to do anything, even get his head cut off, if necessary, to get rid of the cancer.
This is devastating. When I got diagnosed with prostate cancer, a form of cancer that was understood as something they had a lot of success getting rid of, all of these things happened to me. I don’t know if I rationalized it all, but I began to see my prostate cancer as something that broke me out of my complacency and the illusion that my life would last forever, and reminded me that I could go at any time.
It helped me see that my life was miserable at the time. My job was miserable. I was being pressed and oppressed on all sides in a situation that I felt that I couldn’t let go. I found that many people that I thought trusted me argued with me constantly, not honoring my right to make decisions on the type of treatment I was going to have. I found support from places where I never thought I would find it, and lack of support and callousness from other places.
From the whole experience I realized that life will not last forever. Life is very unpredictable. We can work to take care of ourselves as much as we like, but sometimes it is just the role of the dice. We like to think that we are in control and we are to a certain extent, but the truth is that we can go at any time.
Have you or a loved one been diagnosed with cancer? What does it mean to you? Can you find some hope in this time of darkness. Can you find a pearl, or make a pearl, out of this major irritant? What is important to you in your life? These are questions that you can address now, and you find answers. The most important thing, I think, is to do just that. This can be done as one gets out of oneself and begins to notice, if one can, that the world is going on around him or her as if nothing is going on.
The trees and flowers are growing. The night skies are beautiful. Children are being born and people are dying. The whole world is going on all around you as if it doesn’t care that you may be dying. Upon observing this would it be difficult to deduce that you might go on just like the world after your body dies? The essence of you, that part of you that makes you who you are, perhaps, will go on after. Think on these things. All of the spiritual practices in the world tell us this. If you believe that there is nothing and that you will just go into oblivion, that isn’t too bad either, because you won’t be around to experience anything. No matter what happens, therefor, everything will work out.
If you are cured things will work out. If you are not cured things will work out. It is therefor intelligent in the midst of this darkness, pain and suffering, to be happy. It is important not to mourn these days, but to enjoy them, because they may be the last days that you will partake of this life as the person you are, with the friends that you have. Celebrate the day, because whether you are dying now or cancer, or you are dying more slowly from natural causes, we are all in the state of physically dying as soon as the body stops regenerating itself sometimes around the age of forty.

How to Prevent Cancer with Proper Diet and Supplements
By epidemiological studies and by direct trials, much evidence has by now been gathered about the cancer prevention effects of certain diet measures, of specific food sources and of specific supplements of natural substances.
GENERAL DIET ADVICES
A diet with the aim of preventing cancer is generally the same as a diet to prevent heart disease and other diseases. Here are the general diet advices
- Avoid or reduce the amount of food that are industrially processed, artificially made or heavily fried.
- Eat fish at least every second day. Also eat seafood and fouls.
- Do not eat very much red meat.
- Eat 5 fruits or vegetables each day. Each piece should be of the size of an apple or carrot. They should be raw or carefully boiled so that the nutrients are not washed out.
- Eat full corn bread, full corn cereals, peas, beans and potatoes.
- Eat just a moderate amount of fat.
- Ideally most fat you eat, should be of the type mono-unsaturated. You also need some poly-unsaturated fat of the types omega-3, and omega 6, but not too much of omega-6. The consumption of saturated fat should be moderate.
- In order to achieve right fat balance, much of the fat supply should come from a blending of sources like olive, olive oil, canola oil, nuts, nut oil, sunflower, sunflower oil, fish and fish oil.
- Use only a moderate amount of soy oil and corn oil in the diet. Only using such oil types will give you too muchmuch poly-unsaturated fat of the omega-6-type.
- Use just a very moderate amount of fat sources like butter, coconut oil and palm oil. A high consumption of these fat sources gives you too much saturated fat.
- Avoid altogether fat that has been chemically altered, giving so-called trans-fat. This type of fat is often found in margarine, cookies, snacks, fast food and other pre-made food.
- Consume just a very moderate amount of sugar, refined flour or refined cereals.
- Consume just a moderate consumption of tranquilizers and stimulants like alcohol and caffeine.
- Use just a moderate amount of salt in the food. However, in warm weather and by hard physical work, you will need more salt.
SPECIFIC FOODS AND DRINKS TO USE
Generally plants, fruits and spices with a strong colour or a strong taste have cancer preventing effects because of the contents of bioflavonoid and other anti-oxidants. Broccoli, cabbage, mustard, kale, and cauliflower are vegetables with proven strong cancer preventing effects, probably due to the content of indole-3-carbinole. Onion and garlic are also thought to help prevent cancer. Whole grain and bread made of whole grain will help prevent colon cancer because of the fibre content and possibly also because of the vitamins and minerals contained.
Red peppers give a protecting effect against prostate cancer. Eating fish, and especially fat fish, some times each week also have a protecting effect against prostate cancer. Evidence points to the conclusion that green tea can help prevent cancer. However studies so far undertaken do not sort out all other variables that may give the same result. Some studies have indicated that drinking coffee reduces the incidence of cancer, but others studies have thrown doubt upon these results.
SUPPLEMENTS OF VITAMINS AND OTHER SUBSTANCES
Her are listed the most important cancer preventing effects suggested by results from recent projects. However, research is going on, and these results are not yet complete or absolutely certain. These substances give general cancer prevention effects: Sulforaphanes found in broccoli and other cruciferous vegetables.
These substances help protect against colo-rectal cancer: Vitamin B-6 (pyridoxine), Folic acid / folate in combination with other B-vitamins, Selenium, Indol-3-carbinol from cruciferous vegetables, Genistein from soy, and possibly also vitamin D. Alfa-tocoferol (a kind of Vitamin E) may help, but project results are not conclusive jet. Gastric cancer: Substances that may help prevent gastric cancer, and even help cure changes that can evolve into gastric cancer are: Vitamin C, Beta-carotene, (a precursor of vitamin A), Alfa-tocoferol (a kind of Vitamin E), Indol-3-carbinol from cruciferous vegetables, Genistein from soy.
Breast Cancer: The incidence of breast cancer can be lowered by: Folic acid / folate, Vitamin B-6 (pyridoxine), Selenium, and possibly vitamin D. Prostate Cancer: These substances may help protect against Prostate cancer: Selenium and Alfa-tocoferol (a kind of Vitamin E). A long study is under way, but the results from the study are not conclusive yet. Bladder cancer: The chance of getting bladder cancer is possibly lowered by alfa-tocoferol (a kind of Vitamin E). Lung cancer: Substances that gives protection against Lung Cancer are: Isoflavones from soy. Indol-3-carbinol from broccoli and other crusiferous vegetables, Genistein from soy and possibly Vitamin D. Results from research projects suggest that supplements added to the diet to prevent cancer should contain many working substances derived from natural sources, and that it is not wise to use heavy doses of just one substance.
NUTRIENTS THAT MAY HAVE THE OPPOSITE EFFECT
Beta-carotene and vitamin A supplements may increase the chance for heavy smokers of getting lung cancer and other cancers caused by smoking, according to results from epidemiologic studies. However, these vitamins in the food doe not increase this risk. It is not clear what effect beta-carotene have on lung cancer in combination with other supplements or by non-smokers. The results from these studies are also controversial. Vitamin E supplements seem to protect against Cancer, but heavy vitamin E amounts may in fact increase the chance of getting heart problems and stroke.

The history of the Asbestos Cancer disease 'Mesothelioma' dates back to the early 1960s. The use of the silicate Asbestos can be traced back as early as World War II. However, the risks involved with Asbestos exposure were unknown at that time. With the passage of time, studies revealed that the cancerous disease was common in people of South African origin. Majority of them were mine workers. It was in 1962 that Dr. Mc Nulty made the first diagnosis of the Cancer related disease.
Mesothelioma is a cancerous disease that occurs in individuals who are exposed for short or prolonged periods to asbestos dust. As a consequence, the disease can cause severe disfigurement and impairment of the lungs. Individuals suffering from the fatal disease, suffer from breathing problems, abnormal blood clotting, unbearable abdominal pain, significant weight loss and high fevers.
Ptong elucidated that it was the green teas antioxidants, commonly referred to as green tea polyphenols (GTP), that caused this new functionality. The polyphenols of green tea showed the ability to actually prohibit and retard the growth of various skin cancers. From basal cell carcinoms (the mildest and most common form of skin cancer) to malignant melanoma and its variants (the deadliest and fastest spreading form) all were shown to be effected by the green tea polyphenols.
Today, the dangers of the asbestos fibres have raised a growing concern among health professionals. To help prevent mineworkers and shipyard workers from transitory exposures to asbestos, the US Occupational Safety and Health Administration has devised rules and regulations to help win the race in defeating this gruesome disease, which has robbed the precious lives of many of Americans. Mineworkers working in hazardous asbestos environments are urged to wear protective clothing at their workplaces. To help prevent inflicting their loved ones with the cancerous effects of the asbestos fibers, the OSHA urged asbestos exposed workers to make it a regular habit of showering daily to remove any trace of the cancerous silicate like fiber. Families of asbestos affected workers should be tested for any trace of this cancer-causing material.

With all the latest research and developments into skin care it has recently been found that Green tea actually has more to offer than originally thought. In research conducted in Thailand by Dr. Ptong of the Skin Education Foundation it was evidenced that Green tea when taken orally or applied externally had a marked effect on the skin in relation to cancer and carcinogens.
In animal studies where the skin was treated with various carcinogens and chemicals or radiation with mutagenic properties it was found that skin treated prior with a rub or salve of the polyphenols had a much lower rate of mutations afterwards. This resulted in a much lower chance of growths and cancer developing. In one study it was shown that the the resultant damage that normally occurs from excessive UV radiation did not happen to skin pre treated with a GTP salve. It is important to note that they have now found identical results with human research.
“Every area we tested the polyphenols we made significant discoveries and every time it was very positive. The polyphenols extracted from green tea are extremely active against all types of cancer in this study,” Stated Dr. Ptong. It was also found that, along with external application, oral use of the green tea and polyphenols reduced the risk of developing skin cancer more than in half in over 1000 patients. In another test, patients with malignant melanoma were given green tea to drink and after one month it was found that the growth rate of the cancer slowed tremendously. It was found that hot, green tea contained the highest concentration of the beneficial polyphenols. From these studies one can easily surmise that green tea shows great possibilities in skin care and in treating and reducing the risk of cancer and other similar maladies.
