Monday's Health Links

  1. The World Health Organization thinks Canada has been too premature with our BPA policies. They report that there are very low levels of BPA in our bodies, indicating that we eliminate most of it in our urine. But earlier studies have shown that most of us do have it in our bodies. And this study from August of this year says that our children have more BPA in their urine than we do.
  2. Speaking of the WHO, they are an outstanding source of information on cancer prevention.
  3. I have started seeing the effects of lymphedema, and it has only been eight months since my surgery. This article says that it often goes untreated, and unacknowledged,  by doctors. These researchers are using the World Wide Web to help them work together to cure it. If you are looking for information on managing lymphedema, this is a good place to start.
  4. Pathways to breast cancer - researchers hope they are key to targeting drugs that lower the cancer risk.
  5. Unpleasant side-effects of aromatase inhibitors may lead some women not to stick with their treatment schedules.
