Monday on the Robert Scott Bell Show:
A 26-year-old Chinese actress who documented her cancer treatment journey online has died, BuzzFeed News reported, and her death has sparked conversation in her native country about the possible harms of traditional Chinese medicine. Xu Ting reportedly forwent chemotherapy in favor of methods like cupping, acupuncture and gua shau, wherein the skin is scraped to cause light bruising, to appease her parents, who wanted her to undergo treatment for lymphoma. Ting, one of seven children in her family, shared on the Chinese blog Weibo that she had previously comforted a friend as she died of cancer despite undergoing chemotherapy. That experience inspired her to take an alternative route when she was diagnosed with cancer herself in July.
Special Guest: Dr. Robert Bard! Dr. Robert Bard has devoted his professional career to seeking out the most highly developed imaging modalities in the U.S. and Europe. He is an expert in interpreting scans obtained from sophisticated technologies: Ultrasound (Sonography or Sonograms) including Doppler blood flow, elastography, contrast enhanced ultrasound, and photoacoustic imaging; Computerized Tomography (CT); Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) including 3T multiparametric MRI and MRI spectroscopy; Thermography; Positron Emission Tomography (PET) and PET/CT scans, etc. In short, if there’s an imaging technology that has proven clinical value, Dr. Bard is familiar with it.
The first controlled study comparing three different approaches to prostate cancer — radiation versus surgery versus “watchful waiting” — shows there is no truly bad choice for most men, experts said Wednesday. The British study won’t end debates over whether prostate cancer screening is a good idea, but it should reassure many men that it’s OK to make their own decisions about whether and how to treat prostate cancer if they get diagnosed.
Pink-clad Komen warriors race, walk toward cure for breast cancer. Hmm, did it work?
Large majorities of people diagnosed with some of the most common cancers can now expect to live for at least 10 years, according to the latest estimates drawn up by government statisticians. Those who develop skin cancer are the most likely to still be alive a decade after their diagnosis, with 89.4% of sufferers able to expect this lifespan, according to the Office for National Statistics (ONS).
Hour 2 ~ Dr Buttar – Advanced Medicine Monday! The brilliant doctor joins us to share his wisdom on the nation’s health issues.
As the United Nations General Assembly (UNGA) meets in New York this week, one of the topics the global leaders will discuss is antibiotic overuse and the growing problem of microbes—so-called superbugs—that are resistant to the current antibiotics available today.
The American Academy of Pediatrics has strengthened its warnings about prescribing codeine for children because of reports of deaths and risks for dangerous side effects including breathing problems. The academy’s advice, published in a report Monday in its medical journal, Pediatrics , mirrors warnings from the Food and Drug Administration about using codeine for kids’ coughs or pain.
Parents of children with cancer face difficult decisions, and a new study suggests that about one in six of them look back on some of their choices with a great deal of regret. Often, doctors can recommend a clearly preferable treatment. But sometimes, the study’s lead author pointed out, parents may need to decide things like whether their child should take part in a clinical trial, or whether the child should have surgery.
More than a dozen students at Florida State University (FSU) are sick with hand, foot and mouth disease, an illness that’s usually seen in young children. So why are college-age adults contracting the disease? The viral illness can cause fever, painful mouth sores, and a skin rash on the hands and feet, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). It usually affects kids younger than 5 years old.
Seven out of every 10 Americans ages 65 and older have high blood pressure, but nearly half aren’t taking their blood pressure medications correctly— and that’s leaving them at a higher risk of heart disease, stroke, kidney disease and death, according to a Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) report released Tuesday. Improper use of blood pressure medication can mean skipping doses or stopping taking medication altogether.
To fight mosquitoes that may be carrying the Zika virus, officials in Miami-Dade County are now using aerial spraying, and this is stirring local controversy about the safety of the chemicals that are used in those sprays. The debate is over a pesticide called naled, which has been registered for use by the Environmental Protection Agency since 1959. The insecticide has been banned in Europe since 2012, however, which has made some locals nervous.
The pharmacy chain pitches started in August: Come in and get your flu shot. Convenience is touted. So are incentives: CVS offers a 20-percent-off shopping pass for everyone who gets a shot, while Walgreens donates toward international vaccination efforts. The start of flu season is still weeks — if not months — away. Yet marketing of the vaccine has become an almost year-round effort, beginning when the shots become available in August and hyped as long as the supply lasts, often into April or May.
