Lawrence LeBlond for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online Health advocates for years have told us that milk does the body good. Health experts have also been keen on promoting the positive effects breastfed milk has on childhood development. But now, milk is getting a bad rap--particularly, a certain protein found in breast milk is the problem. Scientists have recently discovered that this protein, called ELF5, which is found in all breast cells and is responsible for milk production, is...

Inflammatory breast cancer (IBC) is a very rare and aggressive disease that progresses rapidly and is associated with a very low survival rate. To understand how this type of cancer spreads, it's crucial to characterize the interactions between cancer cells and their 3D environment. Researchers at Fox Chase Cancer Center have developed a novel, 3D culture system that mimics the environment surrounding these cancer cells. This model could be used to test new anticancer drugs capable of...

(Ivanhoe Newswire) -- According to the American Cancer Society, about 227,000 women will be diagnosed with breast cancer in 2012. A new study shows that even the mildest form of exercise could decrease your risk. Researchers at the University of North Carolina Gillings School of Public Health in Chapel Hill are searching for a link between recreation physical activity, done at different time points in life, and the risk of developing breast cancer. The study included 1,504 women with...
