Weight and Breast Cancer Risk After 50

 

Women who lose weight after age 50 and keep it off have a lower risk of breast cancer than women whose weight stays the same, according to a study from researchers at the American Cancer Society, the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health, and others. Being overweight is a known risk for breast cancer after menopause, but this is the first large study to show that losing weight can reduce this risk. The findings did not include women using post-menopausal hormone therapy.

Racial Gap in Lung Cancer Rates Declines

Black/White Disparity in Lung Cancer Incidence Reversed or Eliminated among Young Adults

 

 

A trend of higher lung cancer incidence rates in young Black people versus young white people in the United States has flipped, with the Black/white gap disappearing in men and reversing in women. The changing trends coincide with steeper declines in smoking in Black Americans, according to a new study, which appears in JNCI Cancer Spectrum.

You are all heroes!

If you are using this platform, I can assure you that you are a hero!  We had the pleasure of famous basketball coach, Phil Martelli, joining our Southwest FL Real Men Wear Pink Throwdown last night.  Coach Martelli gave an impassioned speach to the RMWP participants and described what it means to be a hero.  While he was speaking to them, his message is just as relevant to each of you, whether you are volunteers or staff.  I would highly recommend listening to this 10 minute message from Coach Martelli and together, we will CRUSH cancer!
