Prostate cancer progression can be triggered by hormonal nutritional supplementsResearchers at UT Southwestern Medical Center have discovered that hormonal components in the over-the-counter dietary supplements may promote the progression of prostate cancer besides decreasing the effectiveness of anti-cancer drugs.

This finding appeared in an issue of the Clinical Cancer Research to reaffirm the fact that patients must make prior communication to their doctors about any herbal or hormonal dietary supplements.

Dr. Claus Roehrborn, chairman of urology at UT Southwestern and one of the study’s authors, remarked that physicians must ask the patients to give a detailed account of not only prescription drugs but also of over-the-counter drugs and supplements as they may have a profound impact on specific health conditions.

It was remarked by the researchers that further research is required for defining the mechanism, safety, and effectiveness of popular herbal and hormone dietary supplements.

prescriptionMore Americans were abusing controlled prescription drugs than cocaine, inhalants, heroin, and hallucinogens as a combination between years 1992-2003 as per a recently released report.

Joseph Califano, chairman and founder of the center and a former health secretary, remarked that the country is in the middle of an epidemic of controlled prescription drug abuse and addiction.

It was further remarked by Califano that the abuse of prescription opioids among teenagers has risen by as much as 542 percent and the explosion in prescription has brought a greater temptation and threat than the illegal street drug dealer.

It is sad to note that controlled drugs were implicated in approximately 30 percent of drug-related emergency room deaths in the year 2002 alone. Law enforcement officials around the country have been staging a lone battle against prescription drug abuse, especially against pain killers.

  BSO IS POSSIBLY FACING ANOTHER STEROID SCANDAL

bso-is-possibly-facing-another-steroid-scandalJust when the police departments in different areas appear to have more and more officers testing positive for steroid use, the Broward Sheriff’s Office of Palm Beach has yet another steroid hurdle to overcome. Recently, sixteen of its members– fifteen deputies and one civilian employee– have been under investigations for suspected steroid use. The sixteen were taken off their duties in the road and were assigned to office and paperwork while investigations on them are still ongoing. The sixteen were also asked to take a drug test last Friday. The results of which are still being processed.

Back in 2004, the same office faced a scandal when one of their deputies by the name of Todd Fatta was shown to have anabolic steroids in his system after the toxicology section tested him after he was shot during a raid. The next scandal was when eight of BSO’s employees were found to have used anabolic steroids which were all bought from a company known as PowerMedica. The eight were not punished because they were able to produce prescriptions from their physicians. Unfortunately, the lack of further investigations during that incident might have also meant a go signal for other members to take these illegal prescription substances. Sheriff Al Lamberti shouldn’t show such leniency to his deputies because it might give the wrong signal of tolerance to such practice.
