Diet and Cancer
The link between diet and cancer, supported by in vitro, animal, and epidemiologic studies, is convincing. Decisive intervention trials are for the most part lacking, however, because of the protracted time course of carcinogenesis and a lack of reliable surrogate markers in most cases. An exception is studies in populations with well-defined nutrient deficiencies that increase the risk of specific cancers, where supplementation may dramatically reduce risk; the Linxian study in rural China is noteworthy (1,2). Most reviews of diet and cancer cite the work of Doll and Peto (3) and suggest that one-third or more of all cancer is related to nutritional factors and potentially preventable by nutritional means. Dietary factors may influence cancer initiation, promotion, and progression via direct effects on DNA, indirect effects on immune function (see Chapter 11), and overall vitality (see Chapter 45).
As is the case for atherogenesis, the process of carcinogen…

The V*lv* anatomy, phisiology, and pathology Pdf Ebook

This is a much needed book for the patient with v*lv*v*g*n*l symptomatology
too often faces the prospect of an incomplete evaluation and misdirected therapies.
There are many reasons for this. Physicians with practice time constraints
magnified by an office full of waiting patients too often begin their physical
examination with the introduction of the v*g*n*l speculum, bypassing the
v*lv*. In addition, the record of diagnostic accuracy of v*g*n*l infections by
physicians shows a high error rate and inaccurate diagnoses lead to inappropriate

therapeutic
interventions, which only prolong and sometimes intensify patient’s symptomatology.
Finally, to a large extent, the care of patients with v*lv*v*g*n*l problems
requires dermatologic insights that are too often lacking for many practitioners.
