WEDNESDAY, Oct. 24, 2018 -- Millions of Americans take angiotensin-converting enzyme (ACE) inhibitors to lower their blood pressure, but a new study suggests they might also increase their odds of developing lung cancer.
Among people taking these drugs for more than five years, the increased risk may be as high as 14 percent. Although that seems a small number, it could represent a large number of patients, the study authors noted.
FRIDAY, Oct. 12, 2018 -- The same type of bacteria that causes stomach cancer may also increase colon cancer risk, especially in black Americans, a new study finds.
Researchers analyzed data from more than 4,000 colon or rectal cancer cases in the United States. They found a significant association between rates of these cancers and infection with a virulent strain of H. pylori bacteria that's especially common among black Americans.
