British Researchers fi nd 10 different types of breast cancer
The Australian Cancer Council estimates that one in eleven women in Australia will develop breast cancer in their lifetime.
So it’s no wonder many ask the question, “What are my own chances?” Studies proved and discovered that breast asymmetry was greater in the healthy women who subsequently developed breast cancer than those who remained disease free.
Asymmetrical breasts could prove to be reliable indicators of future breast disease in women and this factor should be considered in a woman’s risk profile. Breast cancer symptoms vary widely — from lumps to swelling to skin changes — and many breast cancers have no obvious symptoms at all. Symptoms that are similar to those of breast cancer may be the result of non- cancerous conditions like infection or a cyst.
A revolutionary treatment to breast cancer has been discovered by British & Canadian Researchers. These studies could lead to better
Marx Canoy’s Food Feast: Traditional to World-class Philippines Cuisines
Marx Canoy, chef extraordinaire who rose from his humble beginnings in the Philippines to become a chef to the stars (including Oprah Winfrey, Prince Frederick of Denmark & Sir Elton John during their visit to Australia) is launching a new cookbook “Marx Canoy’s Food Feast: Traditional to World-class Philippines Cuisines”.
Canoy will combine his experience working as a Executive Sous Chef at five-star hotels with his memories of traditional home cooking back in the Philippines to showcase delicious recipes with a rich injection of European, Australian & Asian influences. Canoy, who will be interviewed by SBS in an upcoming Food Safari series focusing on the Philippines, wrote the cookbook to showcase Filipino inspired recipes served at the dining rooms of some of the most exclusive and luxurious five- star hotels in the world.

treatment and tailored made drugs for specific subtypes. Yes! They have discovered that it’s no longer one disease but 10 subtypes of diseases. It’s inspiring to hear that they have potentially developed treatments to spare women some unnecessary treatments. British Researchers analyzed over 2000 tumors tracking the progress of each disease in each woman’s symptoms by examining the molecular structures and identified the tumors developing and cure or prevent it!
Dr Helen Zorbas, Cancer Australia CEO says they have been conducting clinical trials and diagnostic tests to the specific subtypes and establishing the correct prognosis for each subtypes. Prof Carlos Caldas of Cambridge Research Institute says that some women are identifying roots with good prognosis thus easier and eliminate tumor’s toxins while some are harder to be distinguished thus needs further analysis and examinations. This process usually takes an average of 3 years on monitored progress in medication and careful studies.
