When it comes to breast cancer, the topic can intimidate but it’s true and proven that a healthy diet, exercise and lifestyle can all play a role in minimising this macabre condition. While much of it is linked to circumstance, genetics in family history and exposure, one cannot discredit the power a healthy diet and exercise can play in combating cancer; after all even those who have been diagnosed have been successful in beating cancer through lifestyle choices and determination. While much of this healthy diet advice can be utilised to just generally stay healthy, low carbs snacks and such, the following can be similarly effective in prevention of breast cancer; at least according to Dr Vandana Mathur and Tina Sapra, two leading international nutritionists.
The fight against cancer has been on going for generations. Treatment becomes more sophisticated by the day but still that one elusive cancer drug that would cure it all has not been found. That being said, many families have been able to spend extra months and years with their loved ones because of advancements in treatment. In breaking news, thanks to persistent research, doctors have discovered a new drug for breast cancer treatment.
With October having come and gone, a new breakthrough in Triple Negative Beast Cancer treatment will no doubt add impetus to the awareness that the month encourages. Dr. Sam Aparicio of the British Columbia Cancer Agency recently led a study into the genetic makeup of the hard-to-treat form of breast cancer. Triple negative breast cancer is the deadliest form of breast cancers and the prognosis is generally bad news. Although it accounts for 16 percent of breast cancer types, it is the cause of a quarter of all breast cancer deaths.
More than 100 of such triple negative cancer tumours went through genetic sequencing and decoding, the result of which uncovered that there were an incredible number of variations and type and number of abnormalities. A strict set of regulatory affairs would naturally be considered.
Every year an estimated 9000 women in the UK are diagnosed with triple-negative breast cancer. Unfortunately the majority of these women do not respond to traditional breast cancer treatment, which is used to target other types of the disease. Triple-negative is also a particularly aggressive form of the disease which, when coupled with low response rate to the treatment, often results in early death.
