United States cancer survivors face new test in long-term care

CHICAGO | Tue Jun 5, 2012 6:00pm EDT
(Reuters) - Mario Alberico got his education in oncology the hard way. He has lived with cancer and the long-term effects of his treatment for most of his life.
At 51, Alberico has finally assembled a team of doctors near his home in suburban Chicago to manage his care. Before that, he saw one doctor after another who failed to recognize serious health problems that stemmed from radiation and chemotherapy drugs used to treat his bone cancer decades earlier.
During his senior year of high school, Alberico, the seventh of nine children supported by his widowed mother, got radiation and rotated through 4 different chemotherapy drugs at high doses that eradicated the cancer. Each one of those drugs can have grave long-term effects.

And for more ways to stay fuller longer and pack on new muscle with ease, pick up a copy of

Kaapstad – Lugbesoedeling, wat ‘n ernstige gevaar vir die omgewing is, is ook ‘n groot risiko vir mense se gesondheid.

Dié gesondheidsrisiko’s word met  asemhalingsinfeksies, longkanker en hartsiektes geassosieer.

EurekAlert berig ‘n navorser in Tel Aviv, Israel, het vasgestel dat lugbesoedeling nie net tot hartaanvalle en beroertes kan lei nie, maar kan herhaalde episodes hiervan oor die langtermyn veroorsaak.

Dr. Yariv Gerber sê hartpasiënte wat in gebiede met hoë lugbesoedeling woon, is meer as 40% meer geneig om ‘n tweede hartaanval te kry as pasiënte wat in gebiede met lae lugbesoedeling woon.
