Red meat link to breast cancers
Eating too much meat has been linked to bowel cancer

Red meatEating large amounts of red meat may double young women's breast cancer risk, a study suggests.

US researchers writing in Archives of Internal Medicine looked at over 90,000 pre-menopausal women.
Having one-and-a-half servings of red meat per day almost doubled the risk of hormone receptor-positive breast cancer compared to three or fewer per week.
UK cancer experts said animals in the UK were given different growth hormones to US animals.
Researchers from Brigham and Women's Hospital and Harvard Medical School in Boston studied women who were part of the Nurses' Health Study II from 1989 to 2003.
The women filled out questionnaires in 1991, 1995 and 1999, on which they recorded how often they regularly consumed more than 130 different foods and beverages. Every two years, they reported whether or not they had developed breast cancer. Cases were confirmed through hospital records and pathology reports. The researchers also looked at the whether the women's tumours were fuelled by the hormones oestrogen or progesterone. By the end of the study, 1,021 women had developed breast cancer.
There were 512 cases of cancers which were oestrogen and progesterone-receptor positive, 167 that were negative, 110 with mixed status and 232 with unknown status.
Public health implications
When the researchers looked at meat intake and cancer risk, it was found that women who ate more than one-and-a-half servings of red meat per day had almost double the risk of hormone receptor-positive breast cancer compared with those who ate three or fewer servings per week. Writing in Archives of Internal Medicine, the researchers led by Dr Eunyoung Cho, said: "Several biological mechanisms may explain the positive association between red meat intake and hormone receptor-positive breast cancer risk.
They say cooked and processed red meats have been shown to contain cancer-causing chemicals such as heterocyclic amines which are created during the cooking of red meat. A second potential link is the growth hormones which are given to cattle in the US, although not in Europe. The researchers also say red meat is a source of heme iron, which previous research has shown fuels the growth of oestrogen-induced tumours. Dr Cho's team added: "Given that most of the risk factors for breast cancer are not easily modifiable, these findings have potential public health implications in preventing breast cancer and should be evaluated further."
'Complex causes'

Dr Sarah Rawlings, of the Breakthrough Breast Cancer charity, said: "Very little is known about diet and breast cancer risk because we eat a variety of foods and separating out the effect of an individual food is difficult." She added: "Previous studies looking at red meat and breast cancer have been inconclusive. "This study relied on women accurately recalling their diet over the past year and was carried out in the US where animals receive growth hormones not permitted in the EU. And Maria Leadbeater, nurse specialist at Breast Cancer Care, added: "To date we are still a long way off fully determining the many and complex root causes of this disease and it is an area for further research. "Further studies will need to be done to fully establish the exact nature of any link between a diet high in red meat and breast cancer. "The benefits of eating a healthy and varied diet are well established and the biggest risk factors for breast cancer remain gender and increasing age."

Impressed by Knowledge
Dear fellows,
Hope you all are hale and hearty and enjoying the changing season.
Moving on to our topic…How often are you impressed by other people? Many a times? What is it that sets you in wonder? What characteristic of the other people makes you feel impressed by them?
Being impressed by others is not something that happens to you only. Most people, many a times, get impressed by other people. The reason for being awed by the other person can be many. Sometimes it is the wealth of a person that makes him be esteemed by others, other times it is power and authority. Sometimes it is the influential family background and heredity aspects that make other people admire him. However, folks, remember the real wealth, the genuine power is that of KNOWLEDGE.  
One shall never be impressed by others' power, fame or wealth. All these things are temporary. Allow yourself to be awed by others' knowledge. And this also, for a good reason. It shall serve as a trigger to inspire you to yourself soar to heights for the quest of knowledge.  
Materialistic riches of the world do not last long. A robber can snatch the material possessions and hence the wealthy man be turned poor. A knowledgeable man cannot be robbed of his knowledge. He is like a candle, spreading light around. One learns lot of useful information from their company. Such lessons include not only information of facts and figures but also the lessons that serve as moral guidelines.
People who are influenced by other's wealth often end up running after materialistic things of the world and have weak character. Wise are the ones who make the acquisition of knowledge as their mission of life.
Dear friends, be impressed by other's knowledge. Seek company of learned people so as to learn from their valuable talks and experiences.
Happy weekend!

Ms. Amna Tariq Holy City of Makkah-Ul-Mukarrama
