Posted: Saturday, January 10, 2009
Obesity is known to increase the risk of breast cancer in postmenopausal women, but the reason for this has remained greatly unknown.

Cardiovascular Mortality Equally Likely for Diabetics as for CVD Patients
Posted: Thursday, January 08, 2009
Type 2 diabetes and cardiovascular disease (CVD) have been closely linked in several respects, but little solid quantification of the risk diabetes poses to cardiovascular mortality has been achieved. A recent study has made a profound discovery, that in the long-term, mortality due to cardiovascular events (heart attacks and strokes), is equally likely for diabetics with no previous cardiovascular disease history, as it is for individuals with known cardiovascular disease (and non-diabetic). The study was conducted solely on males, but the results are suspected to extend to both sexes.
