Researchers at the USCLA examined the possible cause of liver cancer
in 295 patients with this cancer and compared them to 435 individuals
who were cancer free. Chronic hepatitis B virus infection increased
the risk of liver cancer, but chronic hepatitis C infection increased
liver cancer risk even more. Surprisingly, modest drinking decreased
the risk (in this study) vs. nondrinkers, but being a heavy drinker
significantly increased the risk.
Having diabetes increased your risk 3-fold, but heavy drinking with
diabetes increased your risk 17-fold. Viral hepatitis with diabetes
or viral hepatitis with heavy alcohol consumption increased your
risk of developing liver cancer by a whopping 48-fold. The study
appears in the September 1st issue of the journal Cancer.
Botox Injection Helps Some Tinnitus Sufferers, Hinders Others
In a small study including 26 patients with tinnitus,, a condition
where the sufferer constantly hears ringing, hissing, or whooshing
in the ear(s), a study was conducted top see if Botox injection
would offer relief vs. a placebo injection. The patients were given
a series of 3 Botox injections or placebo, after 4 months the
individuals receiving placebo injection now received Botox or vice
versa. 27% of the patients improved with Botox injection and 16%
said the condition worsened. 8% improved with placebo injection.
The study was presented this weekend in New York City at the
