Let me share some information from a few recent studies:
- Cancers fueled by obesity are on the rise among young adults in the United States and appearing at increasingly younger ages, according to an analysis released Monday by the American Cancer Society.
- The circadian clock is a complex cellular mechanism that, through the control of diverse metabolic and gene expression path-ways, governs a large array of cyclic physiological processes. Epidemiological and clinical data reveal a connection between the disruption of circadian rhythms and cancer that is supported by recent preclinical data. In addition, results from animal models and molecular studies underscore emerging links between cancer metabolism and the circadian clock. This has implications for therapeutic approaches, and we discuss the possible design of chronopharmacological strategies. (LINK)
- Nearly half of U.S. adults deal with some form of cardiovascular disease, said a new study, driven largely by changes in guidelines for classifying high blood pressure. (LINK)
What this all means is that the lifestyle of our population is out eating, under exercising, out smoking, under medicating, and under sleeping anything doctors do to help. No society can afford the treatment of all the things people are doing to themselves. Doctors cannot fix this.
