Monday's health links

I'm considering renaming them Tuesday's health links.
  1. What level of alcohol consumption is safe, from a cancer perspective? Probably none. Vancouver Sun
  2. Men more likely to die from cancer than women. A study finds that it is likely they have higher risk cancers and get treatment later. Gentlemen, please go see your doctors the second you have a concern - don't wait. Reuters.
  3. Looking at a possible link between allergies and cancer.
  4. Researchers find a gene that may help them target treatment of ovarian cancer. US News Health.
  5. Bladder cancer patients get sub par care according to a new study. CNN Health.
  6. The importance of keeping your family cancer history up to date. US News Health.
  7. Calcium and vitamin D linked to decreased melanoma risk according to a study out of Stanford. Scope.
  8. A study in the July issue of Gastroenterology refutes previous studies and finds folic acid or folate reduces the risk of colorectal cancer. Washington Post (Blog)
  9. A new study focuses on salt, heart disease and potassium. Cutting back on salt and increasing potassium are important steps to preventing cardiovascular disease. Web MD.
  10. Finally, after two nights of grilled meats in a row, a reminder about healthier grilling.  Eating grilled meat is linked to increased cancer risk. So, at least part of the time, choose to use lean meats, marinate and try indirect heat to cut down on polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons and heterocyclic amines, or stick to fish, seafood and vegetables.
