FDA advisers back Onyx blood cancer drug
U.S. drug advisers backed Onyx Pharmaceuticals Inc's drug
(carfilzomib, Kyprolis) for patients who have failed to successfully
treat their blood cancer with other medicines, making it likely the
drug would secure approval from U.S. regulators.

Cancer, a New View: Can You Believe it?
I learned, recently, about the father of a friend who committed
suicide because he couldn't handle the painful side effects of
radiation and chemo. It's tragic in every sense of the word that
someone resolves their cancer but can't live with the agonizing, life-
limiting challenges caused by the treatment. I wish there was more
publicity given to the hard facts about long-term side effects of
conventional cancer treatment. We don't shy away from the fact that
there are soldiers who come home from battle only to take their own
lives. Why don't we talk more about the casualties of modern-day
cancer treatments?.

Darwin’s Principles Say Cancer Will Always Evolve to Resist Treatment
According to researchers at Moffitt Cancer Center, cancer is subject
to the evolutionary processes laid out by Charles Darwin in his
concept of natural selection. Natural selection was the process
identified by Darwin by which nature selects certain physical
attributes, or phenotypes, to pass on to offspring to better “fit” the
organism to the environment.

Breast Cancer's Many Drivers
‎Breast cancer is not a single disease, but a collection of diseases
with dozens of different mutations that crop up with varying frequency
across different breast cancer subtypes. Deeper exploration of the

Le travail de nuit des femmes aggrave le risque de cancer du sein‎‎
Le risque de cancer du sein est fortement augmenté chez les femmes
ayant travaillé de nuit, selon une étude menée par des chercheurs de
l'Institut national de la santé et de la recherche médicale (Inserm)
et publiée lundi 18 juin sur le site de la revue International Journal
of Cancer. Cette étude confirme d'autres résultats qui ont conduit en
2010 le Centre international de recherche contre le cancer à classer
le travail de nuit comme "probablement cancérigène".

Les cabines de bronzage, un risque doublé de cancer de la peau
L’été commence officiellement jeudi 21 juin et comporte son lot de
dangers, parmi lesquels une exposition trop importante au soleil. Pour
s'en protéger, on peut croire qu'il est pertinent d’utiliser les
cabines de bronzage pour préparer sa peau. Malheureusement, elles ne
font que multiplier par deux les risques de cancer de la peau, comme
l’explique Évelyne Sage, spécialiste des rayonnements ionisants.
