Coffee Reduces The Risk Of A Specific Form Of Breast Cancer

Recently published research shows that coffee drinkers enjoy not only the taste of their coffee, but also a reduced risk of cancer with their java. More detailed research published today in BioMed Central’s open access journal Breast Cancer Research shows that drinking coffee specifically reduces the risk of antiestrogen-resistant estrogen-receptor (ER)-negative breast cancer. Check the […]

Hyperactive Autonomic Nervous System In Patients With Breast Cancer May Cause Fatigue And Aging

The persistent fatigue that plagues one out of every three breast cancer survivors may be caused by one part of the autonomic nervous system running in overdrive, while the other part fails to slow it down.  That imbalance of a natural system in the body appears linked to the tiredness and exhaustion that can burden […]

DNA Decoded From Patients With Breast Cancer Reveals Complexity And Hints Toward Personalized Medicine

In the single largest cancer genomics investigation reported to date, scientists have sequenced the whole genomes of tumors from 50 breast cancer patients and compared them to the matched DNA of the same patients’ healthy cells. This comparison allowed researchers to find mutations that only occurred in the cancer cells. They uncovered incredible complexity in […]

Obesity May Increase Risk of Triple-Negative Breast Cancer

Scientists from the Women’s Health Initiative found a relationship between obesity, physical inactivity, and triple-negative breast cancer (i.e., a subtype of breast cancer characterized by a lack of estrogen, progesterone, and HER2 expression). Triple-negative breast cancers account for about 10 to 20 percent of all breast cancers and are associated with an extremely poor prognosis […]
