HRT triples the risk of breast cancer biggest ever study shows

first_imgWomen taking the oestrogen-only pill have no greater risk  Want the best of The Telegraph direct to your email and WhatsApp? Sign up to our free twice-daily  Front Page newsletter and new  audio briefings. Since then the number of women taking HRT has more than halved with around one in 10 eligible patients now using the drugs, approximately 150,000 women.More recently a review by Imperial College and a 10-year study by New York University found no evidence of a link, adding further to the confusion and last year the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (Nice) changed its guidance to encourage doctors to offer HRT claiming one million women were suffering in silence.At the time Nice said that the cancer risk was 27 in 1,000 so the new research, which followed 100,000 women for 40 years, increases that risk by 54 per cent.The health watchdog said that the new study should not change how doctors prescribed HRT. HRT was first developed in the 1940s and was first made available to women in Britain in 1965.However in 2002 the British Millennium Women Study published findings claiming that HRT raised the risk of cancer. Many doctors immediately withdrew prescriptions while the Medical Healthcare and Regulatory Agency (MHRA) issued new guidance recommending all women be given the “lowest effective dose should be used for the shortest time.” Women taking the oestrogen-only pill have no greater risk  We found that current use of combined HRT increases the risk of breast cancer by up to three fold, depending on how long HRT has been usedProfessor Anthony Swerdlow, Institute of Cancer Researchcenter_img Professor Mark Baker, director of the Centre for Guidelines at NICE, said: “As with Nice guidance this study recognises there is no increased risk of breast cancer with oestrogen-only HRT but the combined HRT can be associated with an increased risk of breast cancer.“The guideline makes clear that menopausal women should be informed that the impact of HRT on the risk of breast cancer varies with the type of HRT used.“The message from our guidance to women is clear – talk about the menopause with your clinician if you need advice on your symptoms – it’s very important to discuss the options to find what might help you.”The new study also found that the risk declined when women stopped taking HRT and there was no danger at all for women only taking oestrogen, which accounts for half of all prescriptions.Baroness Delyth Morgan, chief executive at Breast Cancer Now, said: “Whether to use HRT is an entirely personal choice, which is why it’s so important that women fully understand the risks and benefits and discuss them with their GP. We hope these findings will help anyone considering the treatment to make an even more informed decision.“On balance, some women will feel HRT to be a necessity. But in order to minimise the risk of breast cancer during treatment, it is recommended that the lowest effective dose is used for the shortest possible time.“The good news is that the increased risk of breast cancer begins to fall once you stop using HRT.” “Our research shows that some previous studies are likely to have underestimated the risk of breast cancer with combined oestrogen-progestogen HRT,” said study leader Professor Anthony Swerdlow, of The Institute of Cancer Research.“We found that current use of combined HRT increases the risk of breast cancer by up to threefold, depending on how long HRT has been used.“Our findings provide further information to allow women to make informed decisions about the potential risks and benefits of HRT use.” Experts said that for many women the risks would be outweighed by the daily benefits to quality of life.”HRT is an effective treatment for menopausal symptoms, particularly with the management of hot flushes,” said Dr Heather Currie, spokeswoman for the Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists (RCOG) and chairwoman of the British Menopause Society (BMS).“Women need clear, evidence-based information to break through the conflicts of opinion and confusion about the menopause.“For many women, any change in breast cancer risk is outweighed by the benefit on their quality of life, bearing in mind that there are many other factors that increase the risk of breast cancer, for example lifestyle factors.”The research was published in the British Journal of Cancer. Hormone replacement therapy can triple the risk of breast cancer, the biggest ever study has found, following more than a decade of controversy.Last year the National Institute of Health and Care Excellence (Nice) changed guidance to encourage more doctors to prescribe HRT claiming too many menopausal women had been left suffering in silence.HRT is used to treat uncomfortable symptoms of the menopause – such as hot flushes, migraines, disrupted sleep, mood changes and depression – by topping up the decreased levels of hormones produced by the body.But doctors were reluctant to prescribe it after a study in 2002 suggested it could raise the risk of cancer, a claim later widely disputed.Now new findings by the Institute of Cancer Research and Breast Cancer Now suggest the original risk had actually been underestimated. A study of 100,000 women over 40 years found those who took the combined oestrogen and progestogen pill for around five years were 2.7 times more likely to develop cancer compared to women who took nothing, or only the oestrogen pill. The risk rose to 3.3 times for women who took the drugs for 15 years or more.Around 14 in 1,000 women in their 50s are expected to develop breast cancer, but that rises to 34 in 1000 for women taking the combined pill, the study suggests.last_img read more

Overseasborn Australians live longer

first_img Facebook Twitter: @NeosKosmos Instagram A report has found that Australian residents born abroad are likely to live longer than those born here. The Australian Institute of Health and Welfare (AIHW) compared the death rates of the country’s Australian-born residents to those born abroad in Europe and Asia, as well as other parts of the world. Asian-born Australian residents had the lowest death rate of the groups, with a 36 per cent lower rate than Australian-born residents.For Europeans, the death rate is 15 per cent in men and 24 per cent for women.Despite Australia’s relatively high life expectancy of 82 years, it found some demographical groups were dying earlier than others. Of those, Australia’s remote population have death rates 1.5 times higher than those in metropolitan areas – largely due to diabetes and transport accidents.The research found that Australian residents born in England and Ireland showed similar death (and life expectancy) results to Australian born residents, whilst women continue to live longer than men and the death rate among indigenous Australians is twice that of the non-indigenous population.Source: ABC Newslast_img read more

Port Heiden Rekindles A Culture of Reindeer Herding

first_imgThe reindeer were brought from Stebbins/St. Michaels in several plane-loads. Photo taken July 6. Credit: Native Village of Port HeidenTwenty-nine reindeer have arrived in Port Heiden, where the village of 100 people is re-establishing a long-dormant tradition of reindeer herding. In a few years they hope to begin harvesting the deer as a sustainable food source for the community. Now, an expert herder and his two teenage apprentices are taking on the challenges of starting a herd from scratch.Download AudioLearning to herd reindeer is a full-time job for teenagers Jake Carlson and Lillionna Kosbruk.“Yeah, every day, eight hours, besides weekends.”“Sometimes we have to herd them in a certain area of the pen, I dunno – it’s a lot of running.:They’re learning their new trade from Fred Goodhope Jr., a traditional herder who was hired by the village of Port Heiden to help them get started.“Yeah this is Fred, I’m the reindeer herder. I’m from Shishmaref, Alaska. I been reindeer herding since I was ten years old, and I’m a third-generation reindeer herder.”Apprentice Jake Carlson sits with a reindeer as it reaches its new home. Photo taken July 7. Photo: Native Village of Port Heiden.The Port Heiden reindeer came as air cargo from Stebbins/St. Michaels. At the end of that 480-mile journey, they were delivered into Goodhope’s practiced hands.His first challenge was to nurse them back to health.“Some of ‘em came in kinda lame, kinda hurt… lot of them were dehydrated, you could tell they’d been without nourishing food because they were in a holding pen.”The reindeer have plenty of room to graze in their new pen. But Goodhope says it won’t be long until they outgrow“It’s gonna be a problem later on, with overgrazing… by then we’re gonna have them going in and out of the gate.”Apprentice Lillionna Kosbruk, 16, sits with a reindeer as it is transported to the pen. Photo taken July 6. Photo: Native Village of Port Heiden.Then there’s the danger of bears and wolves getting into the pen.But more than predators or overgrazing, what worries Goodhope the most is caribou.“Actually, the worst enemy to a reindeer is a caribou.”Goodhope says if the reindeer meet a herd of their wilder cousins while grazing outside the pen, they’ll mingle and even interbreed. And then when the caribou move on, the reindeer will up and follow them.He lost one of his own herds that way years ago up on the Seward Peninsula.“Last time I seen my reindeer was 1997. It was a sad thing, to learn that they walked away.”Goodhope and his apprentices are hoping to avoid that fate in Port Heiden. They plan to keep their reindeer under control with the help of herder dogs.“They have a little litter of dogs that they’re gonna train as pups… and then once you train the pups, they’ll be able to acclimate them with the reindeer.”Goodhope only has a few months to pass on his herding knowledge before he heads back north for fall hunting.The reindeer grazing in their new home, a football-field-sized pen built in the village. Photo taken July 6. Photo: Native Village of Port Heiden.Kosbruk and Carlson should be able to handle things by then. And they’ll start teaching the age-old practice of husbandry to others in the village.“Yes, I was gonna be involved in teaching the kids about the reindeer and involving them as much as we can.”“I’ve always wanted to work with animals… and I can say that I’ve worked with reindeer. I dunno, it just seems like a cool thing.”In another month, school will start back up. The two teenagers will have to take reindeer duty on nights and weekends, perhaps like their great-great-grandparents did years ago. They both say they’re in it for the long haul.last_img read more

He freelances easy assignments for extra money, and when he’s asked to recover letters in Lake Como, Italy, that were supposedly written between Winston Churchill and Benito Mussolini, he jumps at the chance. It’s nothing more than meeting with someone who has the correspondence and then taking possession of the letters. He doesn’t expect another person waiting to grab them or the steps they will utilize to insure that he fails in his endeavour.The hunt for the letters that have historic significance leads to a vast conspiracy involving the election of a new pope and the Knights of Malta, an organization that’s been in existence for centuries. Malone’s easy payday has become a battle for survival. Long-buried secrets are revealed and the consequences of failure could impact history and many cultural traditions. He receives help from agent Luke Daniels, who works for Malone’s old employer. But even help comes with a price when Daniels’ covert operation is quickly compromised.Trust and loyalty are merely optional in Berry’s fun and engaging tale. Elements of the story echo Dan Brown and Berry’s first Cotton Malone adventure, “The Templar Legacy.” What makes his novels stand out is the level of research to make the foundation of the story solid and then adding some mayhem and chaos. After shaking them all together, the result is a thriller that intrigues and provides historical context. Berry is the master scientist with a perfect formula for the bestseller lists.Jeff Ayers, The Associated Presslast_img read more

LOS ANGELES — Jordan Peeles sweet spot as a filmm

first_img LOS ANGELES — Jordan Peele’s sweet spot as a filmmaker are the “pit in your stomach” moments. That thing that happens when you realize the woman stirring the tea isn’t just there for conversation. When you notice that the help is a little off. Or, as in his new film “Us,” when you see that the family of four standing in your driveway late at night looks exactly like you.Peele knows how to get under your skin and stay there, and it’s what made him the must-see horror filmmaker of the moment. “Us,” out nationwide Friday, is only his second and yet it’s been an event-in-the-making ever since it was announced. That’s what happens when your debut is “Get Out.”“Get Out” wasn’t even finished when the former sketch-comedian started cooking up the idea for his follow-up about doppelgangers, loosely inspired by the “Twilight Zone” episode “Mirror Image.” Then the wild success of “Get Out” — four Oscars nominations, one win (Peele for original screenplay), over $255 million in tickets sold against a $4.5 million budget, and general cultural impact — put Peele on another level. So by the time Universal Pictures agreed to make “Us,” not only did he have a budget over five times higher than his first, but he had his pick of collaborators too.“Because of ‘Get Out’ I was privileged enough to be able to tap the best talent in the industry,” Peele said recently.That goes for stars Lupita Nyong’o and Winston Duke, who play dual roles as the nuclear American family, the Wilsons, and the terrifying red jumpsuit-wearing and gold scissor-wielding Red and Abraham, as well as the below-the-line talent: Production designer Ruth De Jong (“Twin Peaks”); cinematographer Mike Gioulakis (“It Follows”); and costume designer Kym Barrett (“The Matrix”) among them.“I had an amazing team on ‘Get Out,’” Peele said. “But this group sort of allowed me to stretch a little bit more.”Duke was impressed by his calm. He knew there were “sophomore pressures” — he had his own set following his breakout role in “Black Panther” — but said Peele never brought any of that to set.“Day one, (Peele) said, ‘Before we do anything I just want to let you guys know that I’m here for you. I won’t stop until we get the shot. When I say cut, we got the shot. So trust me, believe in me,’” Duke said. “And I was like, that’s all I need.”Duke and Nyong’o already had a short hand working together. Yes, they had just both been in “Black Panther,” but they were also Yale Drama School graduates and have seen one another do everything from clown work to Chekov.“It was great to be able to perform with someone who I value as much more than a friend — I value her as a cohort. I value her as an ally. I went to work every day trying to make sure we could create a space where she could excel. I thought that was my duty,” Duke said. “We had a female lead and in our climate in Hollywood we were doing the work and leading by example.”And Peele put them both through the wringer. The days on set as the Wilsons were full of laughter and fun. But the days as the murderous doppelgangers known as The Tethered, Peele said, felt like “a morgue.”“The air getting sucked out of the room is an understatement. But it was kind of cool,” Peele said. The actors went “pretty method” on those days.Nyong’o had it especially hard. She’d chosen to affect a strained vocal condition — spasmodic dysphonia — to make Red even more haunting. And she had to do Red’s first big monologue 11 times with that raspy, painful sounding voice.“Us” is chock full of pop culture references, subtle and overt: A “Jaws” t-shirt here, a C.H.U.D. VHS there. Even the setting, the Santa Cruz boardwalk, is a callback to “The Lost Boys.” And every reference works “on two different levels and hopefully more,” Peele said. But don’t stress if you don’t catch or decipher them all.“There are many of these things that only I will ever know,” Peele revealed.Although one thing is not really up for interpretation: The genre. He tweeted the other day that “‘Us’ is a horror movie.”“I can see the debate already beginning and people are calling it different things. I have a little bit of fun with the big genre conversation,” he said. “But I saw enough little pieces of like ‘horror-thriller,’ ‘horror-comedy,’ ‘social-thriller,’ out there that I just want to make it nice clean and defined: It’s a horror movie.”Peele hasn’t tired of explaining that “Us” isn’t about race, either. Though he understands why people might think it would be, considering “Get Out.”“I know the way we are, the lack of representation in the industry and genre has led us to this point where it’s almost impossible to not see race in a movie with a black family in the centre. And I wanted people to be ready to expand their expectations,” Peele said. “My fear was if I didn’t say anything that people would take away that this was a movie about black-on-black violence which was not my intention.”As for whether Peele has felt internal or external pressures to match “Get Out’s” magic?“There are, but it’s OK,” he laughed. “It’s just movies.”___Follow AP Film Writer Lindsey Bahr on Twitter: www.twitter.com/ldbahrLindsey Bahr, The Associated Press Jordan Peele dares everyone to look at the horrors of ‘Us’ This March 12, 2019 photo shows Winston Duke, a cast member in the film “Us,” posing at the The London West Hollywood in West Hollywood, Calif.

TC party says expansion of AKP offices in north taking on threatening

first_imgThe Turkish Cypriot United Cyprus Party (BKP) is calling for measures to be taken over the expansion of Turkey’s ruling Justice and Development Party (AKP) in the north after it opened a new office in Lefka.According to Kibris newspaper, BKP leader Izzet Izcan said the intensive expansion of the AKP party in the ‘TRNC’ had taken on “threatening dimensions” and constituted a threat for the Turkish Cypriot community’s identity and existence.“After the opening of the AKP central office, AKP has started opening district offices and also youth offices,” said Izcan.He called on the ‘government’ and the other political parties to clarify their stance towards the “political organisation of the AKP-MHP coalition in the TRNC”.You May LikeTact WatchMilitary Watch Everybody in United States is Talking AboutTact WatchUndofindmyemployment.comJob Opportunity: Airport Jobs Have Open Positions – Apply today. – Find My Employmentfindmyemployment.comUndoMyKuyil7 Cheap Islands You Can Buy But You Probably Shouldn’t!MyKuyilUndo New York state decriminalizes pot, stops short of Cuomo’s legalisation callUndoBritain preparing for a no-deal BrexitUndoProperty owners price themselves out of the marketUndoby Taboolaby Taboolalast_img read more

Reform reform reform Fiscal Council says

first_imgBy Gregoris SavvaCyprus needs to implement reforms, boost competitiveness and maintain fiscal surpluses, President of the Fiscal Council Demetris Georgiades said on Thursday.External risks such as trade wars and a change to favourable monetary policy could adversely affect the Cypriot economy, he said.“Cyprus is a small, open but indebted economy and a sharp deceleration of the world economy or a change of the European Central Bank’s monetary policy which would lead to significant increase in financing costs for households and companies and in the longer term of the sovereign, would have huge consequences,” Georgiades told a news conference for the presentation of the council’s spring report.“The response to these risks is reform, reform, reform.”He highlighted the need to create a rational mechanism that would limit the public wage bill increase to nominal GDP growth, further strengthening of the NPL framework especially as a large part of the NPLs have been assumed by the state following the sale of the Co-op Bank as well the setting up of a binding mechanism that would channel the state’s cash reserves to public debt reduction.“We are seeing a trend in increased claims and concessions, fiscal surpluses should be safeguarded. It would be appropriate to create a mechanism that would earmark these surpluses for public debt servicing,” Georgiades added, noting such mechanism would lower debt servicing costs.He also highlighted the need to boost the economy’s competitiveness, an issue raised by many international organisations and surveys.“The economy may be going well, we may have good results from tourism, real estate and other measures taken in the public and private sectors, but we are not in a position to swiftly respond to a new crisis,” he said.Responding to question, Georgideas said the citizenship investment scheme, which involves property buying, should change but he did not imply that it should be terminated.“A termination of the programme would create problems but it is left to grow and continues it would create problems to other sectors when a crisis hit the construction sector,” he added, noting the scheme could not go on forever as Cyprus cannot absorb more high rises. The programme has also caused reaction from the EU and other countries, he said.Georgiades also highlighted that the scheme had caused increases in plot prices, increase in construction costs and rent in the areas involved and especially Limassol. “We point out the risks and is up to the politicians to weigh these issues and take the decisions,” he said.You May LikeMarie Claire | Hanacure4 Stars Who Tried The “Benjamin Button” Facial All Over Your Social FeedsMarie Claire | HanacureUndoPopularEverythingColorado Mom Adopted Two Children, Months Later She Learned Who They Really ArePopularEverythingUndoDirectExposeMan Purchases 42 School Buses For $300 And Buries Them UndergroundDirectExposeUndo Concern over falling tourism numbersUndoPensioner dies after crash on Paphos-Polis roadUndoCypriot tycoon launches ‘Bank of Cannabis’Undoby Taboolaby Taboolalast_img read more
