This Week's Stories
-------------------


Study Disputes Breast Cancer Link

CHICAGO (AP) - In a surprising shift from popular medical theory,
researchers reported that they found no evidence that a
high-fat diet promotes breast cancer - or that low-fat foods
protect against the disease.

Hopkins: Vinegar Offers Dependable Test For Cervical Cancer

BALTIMORE (Johns Hopkins) - An inexpensive, easy test that
changes the color of precancerous tissue could be used to screen
women for cervical cancer and its precursors in geographic areas
where Pap smears may not be available, according to a study of
African women by researchers at Johns Hopkins and the University
of Zimbabwe.

A Strand Of Hair May Reveal Breast Cancer

analyzing a strand of hair could provide a simple, reliable
screening method for breast cancer.

Heavy Drinking May Increase Risk Of Lung Cancer

(NYT Syndicate) - Heavy beer drinking may raise the risk of lung
cancer among men, a new study shows.  But men who drink red wine
may actually lower their risk of developing the disease,
researchers report.

Gene Interaction Linked To Ovarian Cancer

NEW YORK (Reuters Health) -- A gene on the X chromosome may
interact with the BRCA1 gene mutation -- a mutation already
linked to breast and ovarian cancer -- increasing a woman's risk
of developing invasive ovarian cancer, according to a study in
the Journal of the National Cancer Institute.

Prostate Cancer Test May Spot Other Ailments

 NEW YORK (Reuters Health) -- Annual prostate-specific antigen
(PSA) tests, important in the early detection of prostate cancer,
may also help spot patients at risk for prostate-related urinary
dysfunction, researchers conclude.  PSA test results and the
volume of the prostate ''are powerful predictors of the risk of
acute urinary retention and the need for (prostate) surgery in
men'' with enlarged prostate glands, conclude researchers led by
Dr. Claus Roehrborn of the University of Texas Southwestern
Medical Center at Dallas.  The findings are published in the
March issue of the journal Urology.

Stogies Not A Safe Alternative To Cigarettes, Study Shows

NEW ORLEANS (NYT Syndicate) - Cigar aficionados who think they're
averting the dangers of cigarette smoking actually may be slowly
damaging their blood vessels, according to researchers.

Animal Fat May Raise Prostate Cancer Risk

 NEW YORK (Reuters Health) -- A high intake of animal fat appears
to increase the risk of developing prostate cancer, according to
a review of published reports.  But the team who conducted the
review says the exact mechanisms behind this association are not
known.  ''We conclude that dietary fat may indeed be related to
prostate cancer risk, although the specific fat components that
are responsible are not yet clear,'' conclude Dr. Laurence
Kolonel and colleagues at the University of Hawaii in Honolulu.
The findings are published in the March 3rd issue of the Journal
of the National Cancer Institute.
