WEDNESDAY, Jan. 17, 2018 (HealthDay News) -- The small changes you've made have added up to big weight loss results. Now, take a few minutes to write down and review all the positive steps you've made in the past and pick a few new ones to adopt during the year. In one column, list all the healthy habits you've made, like eating more fruit, vegetables and whole grains. In a second column, write down the unhealthy habits you've given up, like cutting down on saturated fat and sugary treats. Now add two new items to each list. Maybe it's eating fish twice a week and switching from white to brown rice. Perhaps you're now ready to give up even diet soda and cut down on red meat. To reach these new goals, back them up with a specific action plan. The U.S. National Institute of Diabetes...

Health Tip: Is Your Food Still Good After Power Outage?

17 January 2018
(HealthDay News) -- If you lose power, it's a good idea to keep your refrigerator and freezer closed to keep food safe, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration says. A refrigerator will stay cold for about four hours, and a freezer should preserve food for up to 48 hours if they remained closed, the agency says. Here are the FDA's suggestions for determining if food is safe to eat after a power outage: If the freezer includes a thermometer, check the temperature when the power comes back on. It is safe to refreeze food if the thermometer reads 40 degrees F or below. If there's no thermometer in the freezer, check each package. If the food still contains ice crystals or is 40 degrees F or below, it is safe to refreeze or cook. Don't rely on appearance or odor. Refrigerated food is...

TUESDAY, Jan. 16, 2018 (HealthDay News) -- Giving fluids to dying cancer patients may help them live a bit longer, a new British study finds. "Hydration plays a key role in delaying the dying process," said Dr. Agnieszka Michael, medical director of clinical trials at the University of Surrey in England. However, "why this is remains unknown," Michael added. The study included more than 200 cancer patients, aged 28 to 98, in the United Kingdom. The patients were in their last week of life and were unable to take in sufficient fluids on their own. Those who received fluids either directly into a vein or under the skin lived an average of 1.5 days longer than those who did not receive fluids, according to the study. The team plans to continue its research. "The results from this...

First Treatment Approved for Breast Cancer Caused by Specific Gene Mutation

12 January 2018
FRIDAY, Jan. 12, 2018 (HealthDay News) -- Lynparza (olaparib) has been approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration to treat spreading breast cancer caused by a BRCA gene mutation. The drug is among a class called poly ADP-ribose polymerase (PARP) inhibitors, which are designed to block an enzyme involved in repairing damaged DNA. The hope is that by blocking the repair of cancer cells, the cells will die and slow or stop tumor growth, the FDA said in a news release Friday. "This class of drugs has been used to treat advanced, BRCA-mutated ovarian cancer and has now shown efficacy in treating certain types of BRCA-mutated breast cancer," said Dr. Richard Pazdur, director of the FDA's Oncology Center of Excellence. "This approval demonstrates the current paradigm of developing...
