Healthy Hispanic Living Continues Latina Breast Cancer Outreach with New Content for March

Irvine, CA (PRWEB) February 25, 2015

Latinas are consistently concerned about diabetes, heart disease and high blood pressure, research shows. Unfortunately, they pay far less attention to preventative care for breast cancer, another serious health threat to Hispanic women.

To help raise awareness about mammograms, the latest cancer research, diet and lifestyle, the Healthy Hispanic Living Website continues in March with new content during the second month of its 90-day Latina Breast Cancer Awareness effort. The outreach is co-sponsored by City of Hope, Breast Cancer Research Foundation, Latinas Contra Cancer and ThinkNow Research, to educate women and their families – and urge screening and preventative measures.

“Many of us have heard of the Hispanic Health Paradox – the fact that U.S. Hispanics live longer with better healthcare outcomes than non-Hispanic whites, despite higher income and education levels for the latter group,” said Roy Eduardo Kokoyachuk, a partner at ThinkNow Research, which studies the U.S. Hispanic demographic.

“Unfortunately, that paradox does not hold up for cancer. There is no protective benefit in being Hispanic when it comes to cancer,” he said. “Only through early detection and treatment will we gain the upper hand on this disease.” Hispanic women have the highest mortality rate from breast cancer than any other cancer.

The A Passionate Pursuit of Prevention campaign is the first of several 90-day efforts by the Healthy Hispanic Living website to highlight health issues effecting Latinos. It focuses on three prongs, including education, sharing stories, and prevention and screening. Visitors can read new articles and watch videos that can help them get beyond the false stereotypes about breast cancer, and understand, for example, how heredity may influence their chances of developing the disease. They can learn the role that diet and exercise play, and about the latest cancer breakthroughs and treatment insights. They can read the stories of Latinas who have lived with the disease, and more.

The new and continually updated content is especially timely, given that research shows a wide disparity in what Latinas understand – and don’t understand about the threat of breast cancer.

For example, only about one-third of millennial Latinas know that 1 in 8 women will be diagnosed with breast cancer in their lifetimes. Similarly, only one third of young Latinas are concerned about breast cancer, compared with 51 of non-Hispanic white peers,” said Kokoyachuk, whose ThinkNow Research firm pulled findings from its database of 35,000 Hispanic and Latino women. The data also often show a significant gap in understanding between more acculturated Latinas than their less assimilated counterparts, he says.

By banding together through this campaign, Latinas can influence their families and create opportunities to advance the fight against breast cancer.

Erectile Dysfunction Myths Debunked: 40% of Men Seeking Treatment Under 50; Healthy Living Offers Alternative Solution

Tampa Bay, FL (PRWEB) February 23, 2015

While popular belief portrays erectile dysfunction (ED) as a problem limited exclusively to the older generation, the latest research on the subject debunks this myth. In fact, an article published less than three weeks ago reported that “ED affects about 10 percent of men in each decade of life” – with 40 percent of men in their 40’s reporting erection problems. (1)

Despite the apparent prevalence of erection issues, ED rates in younger men have seldom been reviewed. An earlier pioneering study, published in The Journal of Sexual Medicine, proved that men of any age can suffer the often devastating effects of ED. Researchers tested both sociodemographic and clinical differences between ED patients over 40 and those 40 and younger and linked ED to harmful lifestyle habits, finding that those under 40 smoked cigarettes and used illicit drugs more frequently. (2)

“Undoubtedly, a man’s overall health has a direct effect on sexual performance,” said Robert Drapkin, MD, board-certified physician in Internal Medicine, Medical Oncology and Palliative Care.

Dr. Drapkin explained that understanding erectile dysfunction begins with knowing how the central and peripheral nervous systems, anatomy, emotions, hormones and blood flow all work together to create an erection. Sexual stimulation causes the release of chemicals that make the smooth muscles of the penis to relax and increase blood flow, which causes an erection. Once the chemicals are no longer released, the erection dissipates. “Any pathology along this process can cause problems relating to sexual health,” he said. “There are both emotional and physiological causes, but sexual performance problems are often a symptom of an unhealthy lifestyle.”

While commonly-prescribed pharmaceuticals such as Viagra are a popular approach to treating ED, Dr. Drapkin stresses that drugs are not the sole solution as erectile dysfunction “is very much the result of dietary patterns, and can be an early warning signal of more serious health risks such as heart attack or stroke, which are also diet- and lifestyle-related.” (3) Dr. Drapkin attests that along with many healthcare providers, the general public is unaware of the components of a healthy lifestyle, as demonstrated by the current diabetes epidemic and overuse of many prescription medicines in the U.S. His view is supported by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s estimate that 69% of adults over the age of 20 are overweight or obese. (4)

To reduce the risk of developing erectile dysfunction, Dr. Drapkin recommends adopting a healthy lifestyle – including a vigorous exercise program – rather than solely relying on prescription medications such as Viagra which may help in treating erectile dysfunction along the way, but fail to address the need for the individual to improve their health.

“It’s important to address the causes of the issue, rather than accepting ironic marketing messages that state a medical approach is an acceptable alternative to a healthy lifestyle,” Dr. Drapkin added.

Dr. Drapkin’s decades of experience, research and study in the fields of diet and exercise have proven beneficial in helping patients treat ...Read More
