In a study aimed at understanding the growth and spread of prostate cancer cells, Johns Hopkins urologists have discovered that the reduction of a specific protein acts as an indicator to an increased risk of cancer recurrence.
If you are a man, and if you think that your ring fingers are short then there is a bit of good news. A latest new study claims that men with short ring fingers may be more likely to recover from prostate cancer. Research shows that those victims of prostate cancer, whose ring finger was shorter than the index finger, responded better to an anti-tumor drug. Apparently, men with short ring fingers have lower levels of testosterone (responsible for prostate tumor growth) and the research conducted on 142 volunteers concluded that these men respond well to anti-tumor drugs called Dutasteride. This drug fights cancer by blocking the effects of testosterone on the prostate, the study says according to Mail Online.
a new study published online in the journal Carcinogenesis has confirmed that cooking red-meats at high-temperatures, particularly pan-fired red meats such as hamburger meat, may increase the risk of advanced prostate cancer by as much as 40 percent.
