WEDNESDAY, Oct. 2, 2019 -- Deaths from breast cancer are still declining in the United States, even as more women are being diagnosed with the disease, a new report shows.
Researchers from the American Cancer Society found that the national decline in breast cancer deaths, which began about 30 years ago, is still evident. Between 1989 and 2017, the overall death rate dropped 40%.
WEDNESDAY, Aug. 7, 2019 -- Skipping that grilled T-bone and having chicken instead could reduce a woman's risk of breast cancer, a new study suggests.
The World Health Organization has declared red meat a probable carcinogen, and this new study adds breast cancer to a list of cancers linked to red meat, including beef, veal, pork, lamb and some game.
FRIDAY, Sept. 6, 2019 (American Heart Association News) -- Researchers have identified a protein that may be a risk factor for both high blood pressure and breast cancer.
Previous studies have found women with high blood pressure have about a 15% increased risk of developing breast cancer compared to women with normal blood pressure. High levels of the protein GRK4 (G-protein coupled receptor kinase 4) have been shown to cause high blood pressure, also called hypertension. The new study, presented Friday at the American Heart Association's Hypertension Scientific Sessions in New Orleans, showed the GRK4 protein was present in breast cancer cells but not in normal breast cells.
