According to a new research study, published in a respected medical journal called The Lancet, aspirin helped reduce death rates from seven different cancers.
Here is a short review of stomach cancer symptoms and treatment from New Hope Medical Center:
Here is a story from last week’s Health News. The topic: Some Spices Cut Cancer Risk That Comes With Grilled Burgers

Here is some good news about stomach cancer I found on a Website promoting New Hope Medical Center here in Florida:
Maintaining weight can be a constant challenge for some cancer patients. I read and review articles about nutrition for chronically ill cancer patients often. Most are so basic they aren’t worth forwarding. This short post by Susan Sisk, listing specific nutritional componants a cancer patient trying to maintain weight should understand, is worth noting. Here is that list from Hubpages.com:
I have written about this topic in the past: Those of us interested in nutrition make assumptions about what is or isn’t good for us. Then the myths start–good and bad. Here is an article about artificial sweetners I found this article yesterday on a site called High Diet:

Yesterday I wrote briefly about lymphoma as it relates to stomach cancer. Today I thought I would at least mention the other, most common types of stomach cancer:
A friend of mine was asking me about stomach cancer today. Apparently, one of her co-worker’s husband was diagnosed this week with a type of lymphoma near his stomach. These are cancers of immune system tissue in the stomach wall. Some lymphomas are aggressive, whereas others grow much more slowly. The latter, known medically as mucosa-associated lymphoid tissue (MALT) lymphomas, usually stem from H. pylori infection and are often curable when found in the early stages. The family doesn’t have enough information at this point to know what type of lymphoma this is. You can click on the stomach cancer link on the right side of this site for more information. Mayo clinic also offers a good, basic overview of stomach cancer and treatment. That is where I did my reading today. I will keep you updated if and when I get more information.
Feel good and keep smiling! Pat
