Your Extra Weight Is Not As Bad For You As Your Doctor Wants You To Think

I am always reading the medical literature looking for positive messages to share with you. And during the holiday season… when most of us have naturally gained a little weight… this is the perfect time to share today’s uplifting medical study with you. This latest study didn’t receive much attention (the negative scary reports always seem to be the ones your doctors want to share with you!) but I think it should have.   Researchers looked at two very large databases, examining body mass (Body Mass Index — BMI) and metastatic renal (kidney) cancer survival rates. They found that obesity […]

Anxiety Doubles Cancer Mortality. It Doesn’t Have To… Here’s How.

  Presented Sept 20, 2016 at the 29th European College of Neuropsychoparmacology Congress, the largest study to date looking at patients with Generalized Anxiety Disorder (GAD) reveals that anxiety more than doubles the risk of a mortality from cancer. Even after adjusting for smoking, alcohol intake, sedentary lifestyle and other co-morbid disease conditions, just having anxiety independently increases cancer mortality rates.     The Study: Looking at over 15,000 patients older than 40 years old from 1993 through 1997, researchers followed the participants through 2015. Participants with a diagnosis of Generalized Anxiety Disorder (GAD) were followed for cancer diagnosis and

Fasting To Decrease Cancer Recurrence

Recently published on March 31, 2016 in JAMA Oncology, new evidence supports the idea that fasting at night reduces the risk of cancer recurrence.   Every night as we sleep we all enter a mini-fasting period before we *break-the-fast* with breakfast each morning. Prolonging the amount of time spent fasting — skipping evening snacks all together and fasting for 13+ hours each night — reduced the risk of breast cancer according to a study that spanned thousands of patients followed for over a decade.   Simply taking care to eat an early dinner and not eating again until breakfast (for

Avoiding The Sun Is Actually More Deadly Than Smoking

A recent article, published in the Journal of Internal Medicine on March 16, 2016, found that folks who avoided sun exposure had a decreased life expectancy, similar to smokers who bathed in the sun.   This study looked at almost 30,000 participants (females ages 25 – 64 year old with no history of malignancy) over a span of 20 years. Researchers followed participants for over 20 years and tracked health outcomes and life span. What did they find?   Researchers found that even when smoking was factored in, the life span of those who avoided the sun was over 2
