Cancer: Curable Disease, Chronic
to a recent
Morbidity & Mortality Weekly Report,
as a result of advances in early
detection and treatment, cancer has
become a curable disease for some
and a chronic illness for others.
Persons living with a history of
cancer are now described as cancer
survivors rather than cancer
victims. From 1971 to 2001, the
number of cancer survivors in the
United States increased from 3.0
million to 9.8 million. That number
increased to 11.7 million in 2007,
or approximately 3.9% of the U.S.
population. An estimated 64.8% of
cancer survivors had lived more than
5 years after their diagnosis of
cancer, and 59.5% of survivors were
aged 65 years or over. Because many
cancer survivors live long after
diagnosis and the U.S. population is
aging, the number of persons living
with a history of cancer is expected
to continue to increase.
survival growth can be attributed to
multiple factors, including earlier
detection, improved diagnostic
methods, more effective treatment,
improved clinical follow-up after
treatment, and an aging U.S.
population. Healthy behaviors such
as smoking cessation, healthy
eating, and regular physical
activity can reduce the risk for
cancer, and early detection of
cancer can improve the quality of
life and increase the likelihood of
Medical and public
health professionals must address
the potential long-term and late
effects of cancer on survivors'
physical and psychosocial
well-being, provide survivors with
coordinated care, and promote the
importance of healthy behaviors and
early detection techniques to
increase the likelihood of survival
with new or recurrent cancer.
Bonnie - while it is incredible how
has allowed the cancer survival rate
to increase that dramatically, the
disturbing statistic concerns an
increase in the number of Americans
who have gotten cancer between 2000
and 2009. While certain cancers have
dropped, others have been on the
rise, leaving cancer as the leading
cause of death for
persons age 45-64 and the second
leading cause of death for 25-44
year olds. In this week's NCI Well
Connect, we explore a plethora of
new cancer data, including
medication, diet, lifestyle, dietary
supplements, insulin resistance,
inflammation, and more.

Heart Guidelines Update Correction.
week, we left out two pieces of
information (see bold sections
below). We apologize for the error.
The following guidelines
were updated by the American Heart
Association with very little
fanfare. There some very significant
changes in their recommendations.
OLD ADVICE: Many
women with high cholesterol should
take statins to help prevent heart
NEW ADVICE: Recent
research suggests that
cholesterol-lowering statins are
most effective for women who already
have heart disease or are at
increased risk for getting it. The
higher your risk, the more likely
you are to benefit from statins.
OLD ADVICE: Thirty minutes of
daily exercise is enough to keep
your heart healthy.
Women need a full hour of moderate
activity each day to reduce their
risk of heart disease. This doesn't
have to mean logging time at the
gym-it could include doing yard
work, washing the car, or taking a
OLD ADVICE: All
adults should take a daily aspirin
to prevent heart attack.
NEW ADVICE: Take daily aspirin
only if you're over 65, have had a
heart attack, or are at high risk
for heart disease. Otherwise, the
risks from taking too much aspirin
(like gastrointestinal bleeding)
likely outweigh the benefits.
OLD ADVICE: No recommendations
for daily fish oil intake for high
0.5 to 1g of omega-3 EPA and DHA for
individuals with borderline fasting
triglyceride levels (150 to
199mg/dL), 1 - 2g for individuals
with high fasting-triglyceride
levels (200 to 499mg/dL), and 2 to
4g for individuals with very high
