Why Liver Cancer Numbers Continue to Increase

Tuesday, July 11th, 2017

The five-year survival rate for people with liver cancer remains at only 20 percent. Diabetes, hepatitis C, smoking, and alcohol are all factors.

Between 2009 and 2013, doctors diagnosed liver cancer in 7.7 people out of every 100,000.

That number has been increasing since the mid-1970s.

In addition, the death rate is rising faster than for any other cancer — it is one of America’s leading causes of cancer death.

Between 2010 and 2014, it stood at 6.3 people per 100,000.

The five-year survival rate is only about 20 percent.

Healthline spoke with Dr. Jack Jacoub, medical oncologist and director of thoracic oncology at MemorialCare Cancer Institute at Orange Coast Memorial Medical Center in California.

He stated that liver cancer is “the second most common cancer killer in the world.”

This month, researchers at the American Cancer Society (ACS) published a groundbreaking study in CA: A Cancer Journal for Clinicians.

During the study, researchers uncovered trends in liver cancer incidence, survival, and mortality rates.

Researchers used Surveillance, Epidemiology, and End Results (SEER) program data obtained from the National Center for Health Statistics.

Risk factors

The following risk factors contribute to liver cancer:

Dr. Anton Bilchik, professor of surgery and chief of gastrointestinal research at John Wayne Cancer Institute at Providence Saint John’s Health Center in California, also spoke with Healthline.

Bilchik said “the reason for the increase in primary liver cancer is largely related to the obesity epidemic that we have going on in this country.”

“Whereas hepatitis C used to be the most common cause of liver cancer, the most common cause now is related to nonalcoholic fatty liver disease,” he noted.

Jacoub, meanwhile, believes that hepatitis still poses the greatest risk.

“There is a very big spiking in hepatitis C infection over the past few decades. And that is the predominant risk factor in the United States for liver cancer,” he said.

Jacoub also suggested another risk factor. He cautioned that “anyone who has hereditary iron overload symptoms,” such as hemochromatosis, is at risk.

“[This] iron scenario causes iron overloading of the liver and [that] causes inflammation and scarring and then … cirrhosis,” he said.

“Whenever cirrhosis develops, you’re immediately at risk for liver cancer,” Jacoub explained.

The influx of hepatitis C

“The incidence of hepatitis C in the baby boomer population [those born between 1945 and 1965] is as high as 2 to 3 percent,” reported Bilchik. “And it’s been recommended that all baby boomers should be at least checked for hepatitis C, particularly since recently we [now] have drugs that are very effective at curing patients of hepatitis C.”

Bilchik added, “The biggest breakthrough in this field has been the fact that relatively nontoxic antiviral medications are now FDA-approved that can eradicate hepatitis C.”

“The problem,” he said, “is that a very small percentage of baby boomers are being tested, or have been tested.”

Hepatitis B infection is also preventable. And there is an effective vaccine.

Starting in 1982, hepatitis B vaccinations became a part of routine childhood vaccinations.

As a result, in 2015 the vaccination rate among younger people varied from a low of 83 percent in Idaho, to a high of 98 percent in New Hampshire.

However, only 50 percent of older adults in the United States have been vaccinated.

The risk associated with weight

Studies show that liver cancer risk increases by 26 percent for every five point increase in one’s Body Mass Index (BMI).

More men than women are overweight (BMI 25.0-29.9.) However, a greater number of women fall into the categories of obese (BMI 30-39.9), and class 3 obese (BMI 40+).

Bilchik noted, “Non-insulin dependent diabetes and lack of physical activity are often associated and linked to obesity.”

In the United States, 69 percent of adults over age 20 are overweight.

“It’s well known that up to 25 percent of kids, if not more, are overweight, if not obese,” stated Bilchik.

ooo

Indications are that greater weight control intervention can help, especially among children.

Interventions might help reduce obesity levels, type 2 diabetes, and ultimately liver cancer rates.

Alcohol, tobacco risk factors

Regardless of amount, drinking alcohol increases your risk of liver cancer.

“Not just in alcoholics,” Bilchik noted, “but also in those people that are considered binge drinkers.”

More effort put into alcohol abuse prevention programs may prove beneficial.

Smokers have a higher risk for liver cancer, too.

Tobacco users increase their risk of liver cancer by approximately 50 percent.

Read more: Poverty linked to poor health »

Race, ethnicity make a difference

There are now treatments for hepatitis C, vaccines for hepatitis B, and better public education about the risks of obesity.

As such, one might expect liver cancer rates to be falling.

But they’re not.

Until the publication of the ACS study, it was difficult to find information that explored total liver cancer mortality and survival rates in the United States.

This was also true for liver cancer mortality and survival rates with regard to race and ethnicity.

Regarding the study, Jacoub noted “liver cancer is one of the few cancers that really has extremely dramatic ethnic variations in population variations. And you’re seeing it in this report.”

The researchers found that the death rate for liver cancer in non-Hispanic whites was 5.5 per 100,000 people.

That compared with 8.4 per 100,000 for blacks, 11.9 per 100,000 for American Indians/Alaska Natives, 9.8 per 100,000 for Asian/Pacific Islanders, and 9.1 per 100,000 for Hispanics.

Digging deeper, the analysis showed that liver cancer incidence varies from state to state, and by race and ethnicity within each state.

Much of the disparity is due to a lack of public health education for certain at-risk groups.

Many of these same populations often also have limited access to quality healthcare.

Catching cancer early

The five-year survival rate after a diagnosis of liver cancer has been increasing ever since the early 1990s.

The increase, however, varies among racial and ethnic groups.

Generally, non-Hispanic whites have a lower death rate from liver cancer than blacks.

One of the reasons is that non-Hispanic whites are more likely to undergo surgery for their cancer.

Blacks as a group are more likely to lack health insurance, which may cause people to delay testing.

The stage of liver cancer at the time of diagnosis influences the survival rate.

Between 2006 and 2012, people with localized cancers accounted for between 40 and 45 percent of all liver cancer diagnoses. These patients had a survival rate of 37 percent.

That rate dropped to 4 percent for distant stage cancer diagnoses.

When researchers factored race and ethnicity into their analysis of localized disease, they saw a marked difference in survival rates.

It is possible to narrow the gap in survival rates between ethnic and racial groups?

Researchers believe the key is in finding ways to diagnose more liver cancers when they are still in the early, more localized stages.

Over the hump by 2030?

Death rates are expected to continue rising through 2030, and then begin to fall. Bilchik and Jacoub suggested a few possible reasons for the decline.

Baby boomers are currently the most at-risk generation for hepatitis C. Their numbers will continue to shrink as time passes.

In the meantime, more effective public health education will increase the number of baby boomers who seek out testing for hepatitis C.

Also, public education efforts worldwide should increase the number of people receiving hepatitis B vaccinations.

In time, the costs of treating hepatitis C will decline.

Fast food restaurants will continue the current trend of offering foods that are more nutritious

The number of tobacco smokers should continue to decline.

Jacoub stressed, “It’s important to know your risk profile.”

And Bilchik pointed out, “If you think about it, primary liver cancer is largely preventable because most of the causes of liver cancer are related to lifestyle.”

Best and Worst Foods for Your Liver

Sunday, April 9th, 2017

internal-liver-sketch image www.newcures.info

1…Oatmeal

berry_nut_oatmeal-bowl image www.foodpassions.net

Food with lots of fibre can help your liver work at its best. Want one that’s a great way to start your day? Try oatmeal. Research shows it can help you shed some extra pounds and belly fat, which is a good way to keep away liver disease.

2…Stay Away From Fatty Foods

neon-drive_thru_sign image www.foddpassions.net

French fries and burgers are a poor choice to keep your liver healthy. Eat too many foods that are high in saturated fat and it can make it harder for your liver to do its job. Over time it may lead to inflammation, which in turn could cause scarring of the liver that’s known as cirrhosis. So next time you’re in the drive-thru line, think about ordering a healthier option.

3…Broccoli

broccoli_greens_mix image www.foodpassions.net

Add lots of veggies to your diet if you want to keep your liver healthy. Broccoli can be part of this strategy. Some studies suggest this crunchy food can help protect you from non-alcoholic fatty liver disease. If steamed broccoli sounds a little too blah, shred it into a slaw and toss it with sliced almonds, dried cranberries, and a tangy vinaigrette. It’s also delicious roasted with garlic and a splash of balsamic vinegar.

4…Coffee

couple_having_coffee image www.foodpassions.net

If you can’t make it through the day without it, you’ll be glad to hear that it may have some benefits for your liver. Studies show that drinking two to three cups a day can protect your liver from damage caused by too much alcohol or an unhealthy diet. Some research suggests it may lower your risk of liver cancer.

5…Ease Up on Sugar

white-sugar_dunes image www.foodpassions.net

Too much of the sweet stuff can take a toll on your liver. That’s because part of its job is to convert sugar into fat. If you overdo it, your liver makes too much fat, which ends up hanging around where it doesn’t belong. In the long run, you could get a condition like fatty liver disease. So do your liver a favor and make sweets an occasional treat.

6…Green Tea

pouring_cup_hot_green_tea image www.foodpassions.net

It’s brimming with a type of antioxidant called catechins. Research suggests it may protect against some forms of cancer, including liver. You’ll get more catechins if you brew tea yourself and drink it hot. Iced tea and ready-to-drink green teas have much lower levels.

7…Water

woman_drinking_glass_of_water image www.foodpassions.net

One of the best things you can do for your liver is to keep a healthy weight. Get in the habit of drinking water instead of sweetened drinks like sodas or sports drinks. You’d be amazed at how many calories it will save you each day.

8…Almonds

bowl_of_almonds image www.foodpassions.net

Nuts — especially these — are good sources of vitamin E, a nutrient that research suggests may help protect against fatty liver disease. Almonds are good for your heart, too, so grab a handful the next time you feel like snacking. Or try them in salads, where they add a nice crunch.

9…Put a Cap on Salt

hand_holding_salt_shaker image www.foodpassions.net

Your body needs some salt — just not nearly as much as you probably get. Early research suggests a diet high in sodium may lead to fibrosis, which is the first stage of liver scarring. There are some easy things you can do to cut back. Avoid processed foods like bacon or deli meats. Choose fresh instead of canned veggies. And keep temptation at arm’s length by taking your salt shaker off the table.

10..Spinach

spinach_salad_with_fruit_walnuts image www.foodpassions.net

Leafy greens have a powerful antioxidant called glutathione, which can help keep your liver working right. And spinach couldn’t be easier to prepare. It makes a great base for a dinner salad, and it’s also delicious sauteed with garlic and olive oil. When it’s wilted, top it with a dusting of fresh parmesan.

11..Blueberries

bowls_of_fresh_blueberries image www.foodpassions.net

They’ve got nutrients in them called polyphenols that may help protect you against nonalcoholic fatty liver disease, which often goes hand in hand with obesity and high cholesterol. If blueberries aren’t your thing, other foods rich in polyphenols include dark chocolate, olives, and plums

12…Be Moderate With Alcohol

woman_relaxing_with_glass_of_wine image www.dfoodpassions.net

Drinking too much can wreak havoc on your liver. Over time it can lead to cirrhosis. Even occasional binge drinking — four drinks in one sitting for women and five for men — can be harmful, too. Try to limit yourself to one drink a day if you’re a woman or two a day if you’re a man.

13..Herbs and Spices

variety_of_herbs_and_spices image www.foodpassions.net

Want to protect your liver and your heart at the same time? Sprinkle on some oregano, sage, or rosemary. They’re a good source of healthy polyphenols. An extra benefit: they help you cut back on salt in many recipes. Cinnamon, curry powder, and cumin are good ones to try, too.

14..Limit Packaged Snack Foods

cup_of_mixed_fruit_on_desk image www.foodpassions.net

Next time you feel the call of the vending machine, reach for a healthy snack instead. The problem with chips and baked goods is that they’re usually loaded with sugar, salt, and fat. Cutting back is a relatively easy diet tweak with a little planning. One good strategy: Bring a stash of healthy snacks with you to work. Try an apple with a single-serve packet of nut butter, or sugar snap peas with a mini-cup of hummus.

20 Secrets for a much Longer Life

Sunday, April 17th, 2016

Do not be a couch potato & get into positive things you can do regularly

to extend your life & be happier & healthier as a result

These are some of the main things you can apply to your daily routine.

1…Maintain a Sense of Purpose

man_looking_at_plant.image www.newcures.info

Hobbies and activities that have meaning for you may lengthen your life. Japanese researchers found men with a strong sense of purpose were less likely to die from stroke, heart disease, or other causes over a 13-year period compared to those who were less sure of themselves. Being clear about what you’re doing and why can also lower your changes of getting Alzheimer’s disease.

2…Manage Stress

woman_meditating.image www.newcures.info

You’ll never completely avoid stress, but you can learn good ways to control it. Try yoga, meditation, or deep breathing. Even a few minutes a day can make a difference.

rainbow line

3…Make Sleep a Priority

couple_in_bed-sleeping image www.newcures.info

Getting enough good quality sleep can lower your risk of obesity, diabetes, heart disease, and mood disorders. It’ll also help you recover from illness faster. Burning the midnight oil, on the other hand, is bad for you. Snooze for less than 5 hours a night and you might boost your chances of dying early, so make sleep a priority.

HOMEWARE LINEN

4…Use Safety Gear

motorcycle_helmet.image www.newcures.info

Accidents are the fifth most common cause of death in the U.S., and the top cause of death for people ages 1 to 24. Wearing safety gear is a simple way to boost your odds of a long life. For example, seatbelts reduce the chances of death or serious injury in a car wreck by 50%. Most deaths from bike accidents are caused by head injuries, so always wear a helmet.

5…Forgive

man_raising_hands.image www.newcures.info

Letting go of grudges has surprising physical health benefits. Chronic anger is linked to decreased lung function, heart disease, stroke, and other ailments. Forgiveness will reduce anxiety, lower blood pressure, and help you breathe more easily. These benefits tend to increase as you get older.

rainbow line

6…Get Spiritual

People who attend religious services tend to live longer than those who don’t. In a 12-year study of people over age 65, those who went more than once a week had higher levels of a key immune system protein than their peers who didn’t. The strong social network that develops among people who worship together may contribute to your overall health.

rainbow line

7…Drink in Moderation

dinner_party.image www.newcures.info

Heart disease is less common in moderate drinkers than in people who don’t drink at all. On the other hand, too much alcohol pads the belly, boosts blood pressure, and can cause a host of other health problems. If you drink alcohol, the limit should be one drink a day for women and one or two for men. But if you don’t drink, don’t start. There are better ways to protect your heart!

WINE ONLINE-2

8…Keep Moving

woman_exercising_on_beach.image www.newcures.info

The evidence is clear — people who exercise live longer on average than those who don’t. Dozens of studies show that regular physical activity lowers your risk of heart disease, stroke, diabetes, some forms of cancer, and depression. It may even help you stay mentally sharp in into old age. Ten-minute spurts are fine, as long as they add up to about 2.5 hours of moderate exercise

rainbow line

9…Lose Weight

man_on_scale-with-tape-measure image www.newcures.info

If you’re overweight, slimming down can protect against diabetes, heart disease, and other conditions that take years off your life. Belly fat is bad for you, so focus on deflating that spare tire. A 5-year study of Hispanics and African-Americans suggests eating more fiber and exercising regularly are great ways to whittle your middle.

rainbow line

10…Get Hitched

wedding_rings-on-hands image www.newcures.info

Married people tend to outlive their single friends. Researchers say it’s due to the social and economic support that wedded bliss provides. While a current union offers the greatest benefit, people who are divorced or widowed have lower death rates than those who’ve never tied the knot.

rainbow line

11.Eat Like in Okinawa Japan

sushi_on_plate.-image www.newcures.info

The people of Okinawa, Japan, once lived longer than any other group on Earth. The region’s traditional diet, which is high in green and yellow vegetables, and low in calories gets the credit. Plus, some Okinawans made a habit of eating only 80% of the food on their plate. Younger generations have dropped the old ways and aren’t living as long as their ancestors.

rainbow line

12…Adopt a Mediterranean Diet

salad-fish_dinner-image www.newcures.info

The Mediterranean diet is rich in fruits, vegetables, whole grains, olive oil, and fish. An analysis of 50 studies involving more than half a million people confirms the benefits. It can put a serious dent in your risk of metabolic syndrome — a mix of obesity, high blood sugar, increased blood pressure, and other factors that make you more likely to get heart disease and diabetes.

rainbow line

13…Embrace the Siesta

man_listening_to_music-image www.newcures.info

A siesta is standard in many parts of the world, and now there’s scientific evidence that napping may help you live longer. A study that involved 24,000 people suggests those who have a regular snooze are 37% less likely to die from heart disease than those who rarely steal a few winks. Researchers think naps might help your heart by keeping stress hormones down.

FDD

14…Quit Smoking

cigarette_butts_image www.newcures.info

It’s no secret that giving up cigarettes can lengthen your days, but the amount of extra time may surprise you. A 50-year British study shows that quitting at age 30 could increase your lifespan by an entire decade. Kicking the habit at age 40, 50, or 60 can add 9, 6, or 3 years to your life, respectively.

rainbow line

15…Choose Friends Wisely

password-protect the big bang trio image www.mylove-au.com

Your friends’ habits rub off on you, so look for buddies with healthy lifestyles. Your chances of becoming obese go up if you have a friend who adds extra pounds. Smoking also spreads through social ties, but the good news is that quitting is also contagious.

rainbow line

16…Make Friends

women_in_dresses-image www.newcures.info

Here’s one more reason to be grateful for your friends — they might help you live longer. Australian researchers found elderly social butterflies were less likely to die over a 10-year period compared to people with the fewest friends. A look at results from 148 more studies shows a clear link between social ties and a long life.

rainbow line

17…Play to Win

dog_with_blue_ribbon-image www.newcures.info

An 80-year study found that people who are conscientious — meaning they pay attention to detail, think things through, and try to do what’s right — live longer. They do more things to protect their health and make choices that lead to stronger relationships and better careers.

ANIMALS GENERIC BANNER

rainbow line

18…Protect Your DNA

dna_structure_image www.newcures.info

As you age, the ends of your chromosomes — called telomeres — become shorter. This makes you more likely to get sick. But lifestyle changes can boost an enzyme that increases their length. Plus, studies show diet and exercise can protect  them. The bottom line: Healthy habits may slow aging at the cellular level.

rainbow line

19…Be the best person you can be

older happy couple ride on bikes image www.newcures.info

Doing the right thing to & by  your fellow humans will make you more gratified & happy about yourself. This in itself will empower you to do positive things for yourself & others.

DO THESE THINGS CAUSE CANCERS?

Saturday, January 16th, 2016

1…Artificial Sweeteners

sugar_and_artificial_sweeteners_in_bowl_image www.newcures.info

Despite all the talk — and chain emails — there’s no proof that these sugar stand-ins raise your risk of cancer. Saccharine did cause cancer in rats, but their bodies react to it differently than ours, researchers say. There hasn’t been a cancer warning label on it since 2000. A study of aspartame in people found no link either.

red pill line

2…X-rays

dental_xrays_front_image www.newcures.info

Your dentist covers you in a lead blanket for a reason. Even low doses of X-rays raise your chances of getting cancer, but only by a small amount. In general, the higher the dose of radiation, the more the risk. But there’s no amount of this kind of radiation that’s totally safe. That’s why the EPA limits how much you can get.

red pill line

3…Cell Phones  >>> www.freephonelink.net

businessman_using_hands_free_cell_phone_image www.newcures.info

This gadget, which you keep near all the time, gives off the same type of energy as microwave ovens. So far, it hasn’t been linked to cancer, but more research is needed. Just to be safe:

  • Save it for short chats or when there’s no landline.
  • Use a hands-free device.

red pill line

3…Meat  >>> www.foodpassions.net

sausages_on_a_grill_image www.newcures.info

Whether it’s processed or red, you need less of it in your life. Just one hot dog a day could boost your chances of getting colon cancer.  Luncheon meats, cold cuts, and hot dogs all have preservatives called nitrites, which cause cancer. Smoking meats or cooking them at a high temperature creates compounds called PAHs. Studies are under way to see how they affect people.

red pill line

4…Bottled Water  >> www.h2o-water.com

asian_woman_drinking_bottled_water_outdoors_image www.newcures.info

If your bottle is clear plastic, it probably has bisphenol A (BPA). This chemical is used in food and drink containers, dental sealants, and other products. Does it cause cancer? The FDA says no, BPA is safe at current levels found in foods. If you’re concerned, avoid canned foods and store chow and drinks in clear plastic. For hot food, use glass or steel instead.

red pill line

5…Sex >>> www.club-libido.com & >>>> www.clublibido.com.au

man_opening_condom_wrapper_image www.newcures.info

It’s true. Human papillomavirus (HPV), the most common sexually transmitted infection, can cause cervical and other cancers. Most adults who have sex will get this virus at some point. But they won’t all get cancer. Most of the time, HPV goes away by itself. To lower your risk:

  • Get vaccinated if you’re a female aged 11-26 or a male aged 11-21.
  • Use condoms during sex.
  • Have sex with only one partner.

red pill line

6…Dental Fillings >> www.perfectwhiteteeth.net

amalgam_filling_in_tooth_image www.newcures.info

Don’t call the dentist to have your metal filings removed and replaced. Experts say your current ones are safe. Studies have found no link between fillings with mercury and cancer — or any other disease.

red pill line

7…Coffee >> www.foodpassions.net

asian_woman_drinking_coffee_image www.newcures.info

If you feel your day doesn’t really start until you’ve had a shot of caffeine, you’ll love this. New research shows that drinking moderate amounts of coffee (around four cups daily) lessens the risk of some types of cancer, among them skin, liver, and colon.

red pill line

8…Deodorant and Antiperspirant

woman_applying_deodorant_image www.newcures.info

Scientists say more research is needed to know for sure if these products boost the odds of breast cancer. They have different jobs — deodorant blocks the smell and antiperspirant stops sweat. Many use chemicals that act like the hormone estrogen, which causes cancer cells to grow. These include benzylparaben, butylparaben, methylparaben, and propylparaben.

red pill line

9…Fluoride  >> www.h2o-water.com    >> www.perfectwhiteteeth.net

closeup_of_green_mouthwash_image www.newcures.info

This compound is found in water and other drinks and in food, toothpastes, and mouth rinses. Though many studies have looked for links between it and cancer, most researchers says there’s no strong tie. If you’re worried about it, you can ask the Environmental Protection Agency how much is in your drinking water. If it’s high, switch to bottled spring water, which usually has the least.

red pill line

10…Household Products  >> www.handyhomehints.com

colorful_paint_can_lids_and_roller_image www.newcures.info

Many pesticides, paints, varnishes, and waxes give off gases known as volatile organic compounds  (VOCs). So do some cleaning, cosmetic, automotive, and hobby products. These gases have been linked to cancer in humans and animals. To cut your risk choose products labeled low-VOC and biodegradable when possible. Avoid items labeled as:

  • Danger/Poison
  • Corrosive
  • Severely Irritating
  • Highly Flammable
  • Highly Combustible
  • Strong Sensitizer

red pill line

11..Power Lines >> www.energy-options.info

power_lines_image www.newcures.info

Anything that makes, sends, or uses electricity gives off extremely low frequency (ELF) radiation. There’s no proof that it causes cancer. Still, the National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences says there’s cause for “limited concern.” To be safe, stay at least an arm’s length away from electrical devices. If you live close to a power line and you’re worried, get a gizmo called a gaussmeter. You can use it to measure the ELF fields near you.

red pill line

12…Pollution

shanghai_skyline_smog_image www.newcures.info

Air pollution causes over 220,000 lung cancer deaths worldwide a year (most of them in Asia). There’s also a link between dirty air and a higher risk of bladder cancer. But the odds for any one person are low. To cut your chances, listen to local smog alerts. Try to stay inside on days when the air quality is poor.

THESE ARE SOME 21 HEALTH FRAUDS TO KEEP AN EYE OPEN FOR

Tuesday, May 5th, 2015

21 Total Health Frauds You Need To Know About…

WARRANTY SEALED ENVELOPE RED WHITE IMAGE www.newcures.info

There are many health remedies and empty promises out there which simply do not work. Not only are some people being tricked, but some are even harmed. Here are 21 health frauds you need to know about…

*******************************************************************************

1. Identity Theft

id_theft_card image www.newcures.info

In this case, medical identity theft is a real issue. This is when a person’s identity has been misused in order to pay for services, bills, medications, or whatever else they desire. This is not only happening to patients, as doctors are also being targeted. The identity of doctors are stolen, then used to write fake prescriptions.

*******************************************************************************

2. Miracle Cures

miracledrug_image www.newcures.info

If anything claims to be a ‘miracle cure,’ then it’s probably too good to be true. Companies will often use claims such as ‘secret ingredient’ or ‘new scientific discovery.’ The truth is, if these claims were true, treating a well-known condition, it would be all over the media. Don’t fall for miracle cure scams. Know what you’re buying first.

*******************************************************************************

3. Quick Fixes

losing weight fast image www.newcures.info

Once again, if it seems to good to be true, it probably is. Very few conditions can be treated rapidly, even with the latest, most legitimate products and medications. If anyone makes claims like, ‘cure your lung cancer in days’ or ‘lose 40 pounds in a month,’ then you should be VERY cautious.

*******************************************************************************

4. Anti-Aging

anti-aging-womans face image www.newcures.info

We value a younger looking culture, which is why people strive to looker younger each and every day. There are so many pills on the market, which haven’t been proven to reduce the signs of aging. There are also creams, therapies, and all kinds of false claims. You’re better off eating right, exercising, and minimizing stress.

*******************************************************************************

5. Arthritis Remedies

taking fish oil tablets in hand image www.newcures.info

This is a large area of concern, as SO many people are affected by arthritis. If you see claims that magnets, chemicals, radiation, magic pills, or any other form of treatment will cure your arthritis, it’s unlikely that it actually will. Once again, rest, exercises, heat and diet are your best bet when it comes to reducing symptoms.

*******************************************************************************

6. Cancer Cures

prison-doctor-image www.newcures.info

It’s sad that people take advantage of others during their most desperate times, but it happens. Scam artists most certainly prey on cancer patients, because they’ll do anything to improve their condition. There isn’t a treatment that can cure all cancer types, it simply doesn’t exist yet. Don’t waste your time with UNPROVEN treatments, as this is precious time wasted.

*******************************************************************************

7. False Memory Aids

Brain-Memory-image www.newcures.info

Smart pills will not improve your memory, which are often marketed as miracle pills for dementia or Alzheimer’s. There isn’t a cure for these conditions, so please be aware. You need to keep your mind stimulated and provide it with nutrients. If you are suffering from issues with your memory, create a treatment plan with your doctor, do not buy pills off of the Internet.

8. Dietary Supplements

pills & Supplements-image www.newcures.info

There are most certainly some great supplements out there, but there are also a lot of fraudulent products as well. Since the Federal Government does not consider supplements to be medicine they’re not regulated as tightly. Many supplements are not properly tested, which could cause you more harm than good.

*******************************************************************************

9. Health Insurance Scams

Careful when purchasing health insurance, as the fine print may suggest something else. Many insurance companies will make claims, but than fail to deliver. If you do buy insurance, ALWAYS make sure that the company is licensed within your state.

*******************************************************************************

10. Counterfeit Prescription Drugs

dangerous_online_drug_pharmacies_counterfeit_medication image www.newcures.info

Some companies are selling fraudulent medications online. Many seniors are looking for cheaper options, which these companies provide. This is dangerous, because they don’t know what’s in the medication and it may make their condition worse. People often lose their money and are no better off in terms of their medical condition.

*******************************************************************************

11. Fraudulent Diabetes Supplements

B_vitamin_supplement_tablets-500x399 image www.newcures.info

There are many diabetes supplements which make exciting claims, yet put consumers in harms way. These supplements can result in injury or even death. There are some great supplements out there, so just make sure you do your research. Read ALL the claims and see if anything seems like it’s conflicting. Also, ask you doctor to look at the ingredient list and claims, so that you know you’re not putting yourself at-risk.

*******************************************************************************

12. Tainted Sexual Enhancement Drugs

white pills in bulk image www.newcures.info

There are many products that are now being offered, which include dangerous ingredients. Some include prescription drugs (which are unrelated to the condition the consumer is trying to treat), hidden active ingredients, illegal drugs and more. This is becoming increasingly popular in sexual enhancement drugs, so please be cautious before you purchase any enhancement drugs

*******************************************************************************

13. Weight Loss and Sibutramine

feet on scales image www.newcures.info

The FDA has found multiple weight-loss supplements which contain the prescription drug known as sibutramine. This drug has already been removed from the FDA-approved list, as it was causing heart complications and strokes. Nothing beats a healthy diet and exercise, when trying to lose weight.

*******************************************************************************

14. Bodybuilding Supplements

supplements_mass-500x277 image www.newcures.info

Not all supplements are created equal, so do not waste your money or time! In some cases, it’s not just your wallet you need to worry about. Many men’s supplements are packed with soy, causing their pecks to fill with fatty tissue. Instead of building muscle, men have been developing breasts. There are also many dangerous additives being used, so be aware of what you’re taking

*******************************************************************************

15. 7-Day Miracle Cleanse

fraud alert-signs 464641_640-500x353 image www.newcures.info

There were claims that a 7-day miracle cleanse could treat AIDs, diabetes, Alzheimer’s, and more. This was developed by Paris DeAguero, who claimed that this cleanse cured his cancer, marketing his product on infomercials. These claims were obviously false, but you see how quickly people can be impacted.

*******************************************************************************

16. Chelation Therapy For Autism

Autism-sign-00x-500x202 image www.newcures.info

We still do not understand everything there is to know about autism. This was a claim made, so that parents could remove mercury from their autistic children’s bodies. This is due to the fact that mercury-based preservatives were used in autistic medications until 2001. This therapy is not only fraudulent, but dangerous. It does NOT cure autism.

*******************************************************************************

17. Ozone Therapy

This therapy involves infused blood, drinking water with triatomic oxygen, or body cavities, in order to kill microbes. This therapy claims to kill arthritis, cancer and HIV microbes. Ground-level ozone is considered a pollutant, and should NOT be administered to your body.

*******************************************************************************

18. Malariotherapy

This was a pre-antibiotic treatment for syphilis, developed by Dr. Henry Heimlich. He also advocates that the malaria infection, can help cure other diseases. He began to claim that this therapy could cure AIDS, even though these patients have poor immune systems.

*******************************************************************************

19. Cancell…?

pink-ribbon_in_hands_image_3054334b-500x312

This treatment targets cancer patients, as the company Nu-gen Nutrition Inc was sued by the FTC based on false claims. Offered in the form of an electrolyte drink, this product claims to cure cancer

*******************************************************************************

20. All-Natural Processed Foods

???????????????????????????????

The food industry also uses health in order to market their products. If a product which has been processed says ‘all-natural’ does not mean that it’s a healthy choice. If something was all-natural, it should be grown out of the ground and eaten just as natural intended. The FDA has not yet defined all natural, so companies are using this to their advantage. Many of these products are packed with preservatives and use low quality ingredients.

*******************************************************************************

21. Zero Trans Fats

trans_fat_chart-image www.newcures.info 500x333

Once again, know what you’re buying. You need to read labels and ingredient lists, so that you are not fooled into making poor health choices. Companies have some wiggle room when it comes to trans fats. These are of course the unhealthiest fats, directly threatening your heart health. Products can have up to 0.5% trans fats, yet still be marketed as zero. Look for hydrogenated ingredients, so that you can protect your health and cholesterol.

U.S. prescription drug spending jumps 13% to a record $374 billion

Friday, April 17th, 2015

PILL IN HAND IMAGE www.newcures.info

The influx of millions of people newly insured under the Affordable Care Act was less of a factor than expected — about $1 billion of the spending growth, it said.

“This was an outstanding year, really a once-in-a-lifetime year,” said Michael Kleinrock, director of research development for IMS Health. “It was the largest dollar growth in a single year we’ve ever measured. This is a huge amount of extra spending.”

Does it bother you so much that 10 million more people now have access to healthcare? Is it a bad thing that thousands of people are receiving treatment for the previously incurable Hep C and will no longer be spreading it amongst the population?
I mean, I’m sure you don’t have much human contact at all – to say nothing of intimate – so you don’t worry about communicable diseases. But some of us do.
