Tattoos can cause cancer – with one colour potentially more toxic than others, study says

Tattoos can cause cancer and mutations - and one colour is potentially more toxic than others, according to scientists. Research by the European Chemicals Agency to be published imminently is investigating possible risks associated with being inked. The agency said: “Many reports show significant concerns for public health stemming from the composition of inks used for tattooing. “The most severe concerns are allergies caused by the substances in the inks and possible carcinogenic, mutagenic or reproductively toxic effects.” Inks are not currently regulated in the EU.

If any particular chemicals are found to be harmful as thought, they will be banned. An agency spokesman said: "If it is found that a restriction is needed, a formal proposal to restrict the substances will be submitted within one year to initiate the process." Red ink has been linked to dermatitis - swelling and soreness - due to it containing mercury sulphide. Meanwhile red, blue, green and purple ones are more likely to cause granulomas – little ridges of bumps on the skin.The public will be asked to contribute to the research.

The NHS has also warned of the dangers of ‘black’ or ‘neutral’ henna. Different to authentic henna, which is orange in colour, this darker substance it may contain levels of a chemical dye ‘so powerful and toxic that it is illegal to use it on the skin’. The NHS warned: “If you see a shop or stall offering to paint black tattoos onto your skin, don’t be tempted to get one. It could leave you scarred for life and put you at risk of a life-threatening allergic reaction.” Anyone suffering an allergic reaction should contact a doctor as soon as possible

LUNG CANCER VACCINE COULD COME TO US FROM CUBA


Lung cancer accounts for one in four cancer deaths in the country. But a new inexpensive treatment developed in Cuba could soon be on its way to the U.S.

Lung cancer is the number one killer in the U.S. Until now, treatment options have been limited. But researchers are studying a revolutionary treatment for cancer patients and those at high risk, like smokers, even if they are not yet showing signs of the disease.

Susan Roney is a successful attorney and a partner in her law firm. She also has a loving family. But seven years ago her life was forever changed.

"I was diagnosed with Stage IV lung cancer in January 2009. I thought I had bronchitis so it was an enormous shock," said Roney.

Roney says she didn't have any of the risk factors for lung cancer.

"I was otherwise healthy. I was a non-smoker. I was 50 years old," said Roney.

Now a revolutionary lung cancer vaccine may have the potential to significantly help people like Roney.

The vaccine, called Cimivax, was developed in Cuba, where it is already in use. Dr. Kelvin Lee, Chair of Immunology at Roswell Park Cancer Institute, says the vaccine has already been shown to be effective.

"Instead of going after the cancer directly it goes after the growth factor and prevents the cancer from growing with the idea of turning the cancer into a chronic disease," said Dr. Lee. "The vaccine is inexpensive. It's easy to give. It's given as a shot once a month. It has very little toxicity. Patients really do very well with it."

As for Susan Roney, the lung cancer metastasized to her brain in the summer of 2015, but she is responding well to treatment. She's encouraged by news of the potential vaccine.

"The one thing you need when you're diagnosed with cancer is hope because hope keeps you going," said Roney.

The vaccine has also been approved for use in Paraguay and Peru and is expected to be approved soon in Colombia. Meanwhile, phase one clinical trials at Roswell Park in New York City could get underway by the end of this year.

#CANNULATION

Drug,alcohol,smoke abuse social and hygienic significance and prophylaxis.AIDS and its prevention.

Dear My Friends and Colleagues, Above all things my that work(publishing) based on scientific researches.We are who works for science we should raise awareness to public.
Drugs , Alcohols and Smokes are the most popular issues on health care.
Doctors and Medical Workers must discuss effect of using drugs, alcohol and smokes.
And how we can shroud people who’re victims. And for AIDS , prevention to the diseases which we can get by sexual activity are so important for our healthy next generation.
Especially (disease AIDS) HIV is terrible virus.
Young people must realize protection process which they learned from official medical societies.Therefore reconstruction of public will be more withitness to us.
Thanks to my family and my supporters i will share my research to you...
I hope will be helpful and utility to you...

The Secrets to a Happy Life, From a Harvard Study




What does it take to live a good life?
Surveys show that most young adults believe that obtaining wealth and fame are keys to a happy life. But a long-running study out of Harvard suggests that one of the most important predictors of whether you age well and live a long and happy life is not the amount of money you amass or notoriety you receive. A much more important barometer of long term health and well-being is the strength of your relationships with family, friends and spouses.
These are some of the findings from the Harvard Study of Adult Development, a research project that since 1938 has closely tracked and examined the lives of more than 700 men and in some cases their spouses. The study has revealed some surprising – and some not so surprising – factors that determine whether people are likely to age happily and healthily, or descend into loneliness, sickness and mental decline.
