Link uncovered between heavy vitamin B intake and lung cancer in men

23 Aug 2017 --- Vitamins B6 and B12 have been long touted by the vitamin industry for increasing energy and improving metabolism, and possibly even reducing cancer risk. However, new research suggests that long-term, high-dose supplementation is associated with a two- to four-fold increase in lung cancer risk in men relative to non-users. This is the first prospective, observational study to look at the effects of long-term high-dose B6/B12 supplement use and lung cancer risk.

Why Obesity Leads to More Aggressive Prostate Cancer

14 Jan 2016 --- Obesity has direct consequences on health and is associated with the onset of aggressive cancers, but the mechanisms underlying this phenomenon are little known. Researchers from the Institut de Pharmacologie et Biologie Structurale (CNRS/Université Toulouse III - Paul Sabatier) have recently elucidated one of these mechanisms in prostate cancer, one of the most common cancers in men: in obese patients, the adipose tissue surrounding the prostate gland facilitates the spread of tumor cells outside the prostate. A patent has been filed for these results, which open new avenues for the treatment of prostate cancer, and are published in Nature Communications on January 12, 2016.

Connections Discovered Between Masculinity, Energy Drink Use, and Sleep Problems

06 Nov 2015 --- Energy drinks have grown in popularity for many Americans, but there is growing concern about the health risks of consuming them in large quantities.

Their findings were published in the November 2015 issue of Health Psychology.
