A large-scale analytical study done by researchers from the University of Reading, England shows no link between stroke, heart attack and cardiovascular risks with the consumption of cheese, yogurt and other dairy or milk products. Researchers analyzed almost one million patient records and 93,000 death records from 29 studies. Researchers studied consumption of dairy products with coronary heart disease (CHD), cardiovascular diseases (CVD) and death.
The study results show no association between low or high-fat dairy or milk products such as cheese, yogurt etc with coronary heart disease (CHD), cardiovascular diseases (CVD) and all-cause mortality. The study shows a lower risk of cardiovascular diseases with the consumption of cheese. Daily consumption of 10 grams of cheese was associated with two percent lower risk of cardiovascular diseases. Researchers say milk or dairy products such as milk, cheese, yogurts won't damage the health of an individual and they can be part of healthy diet. Authors of the study were Jing Guo and Julie Lovegrove and the study findings were published in the European Journal of Epidemiology.
A study involving 800,000 people done by researchers at Ohio State University, the United States shows the development of gliomas brain tumor was less likely in 1 out of 16 diabetes individuals (lower risk of brain cancer). Researchers say understanding this body mechanism will lead to better understanding of gliomas (a type of tumor or tumour. They develop in brain or spine) development. Till now, there is no cure, treatment or medications to the brain tumor or brain cancer and survival chances are less.
Earlier studies show high blood pressure or hypertension reduces the risk of benign meningioma brain tumor. Researchers say rare malignant brain tumors are common among individuals with normal blood sugar or glucose levels. This finding may provide a clue to the development of cancers and cancer treatment options.
Even though there may be a lower risk of brain cancer in diabetes individual, diabetes condition doubles the risk of the development of womb cancer, pancreas and liver and 50 percent enhance the risk of the development of bladder, breast and bowel cancer. Lead author of the study was Judith Schwartzbaum, an associate professor of epidemiology, Ohio State's Comprehensive Cancer Center and the study findings were published in the journal Scientific Reports.
Benign : Benign tumor grows slowly and it is non-cancerous (unable to spread to other areas in the body). The common type of benign tumor is meningiomas (spinal cord or brain), lipomas (fat cells), hemangiomas (skin and blood vessels). Development of malignant tumor from benign tumors is rare as benign tumors are capsulated and surrounded by a protective mechanism by our immune system.
Malignant : Malignant tumor is cancerous with fast growth and can able to spread to other parts of the body through the bloodstream, lymphatic system and circulatory system. They are non-capsulated. They never stick to original growth area in the body as they are without chemical adhesion molecules.
