taramannMy second guests, Tara and Steve Mann, are Co-Founders, CEO and President of Cancer Crackdown. Cancer Crackdown is a 501(c)(3) Non-Profit organization, their passion is to help fighters take their battle with cancer to the next level. They are unique in that they fight alongside those battling this disease. They develop plans and help fighters and survivors to be successful in following them to reach their overall health goals. They offer a wide range of resources and encouragement for those fighting, those surviving and those that wish to prevent this disease. We all have a choice in this battle against cancer, to survive or to prevent!!
Their mission is to be the trusted source of knowledge regarding natural therapies to defeat cancer and remain cancer free. We partner with fighters and survivors by supporting and navigating them through their battle. Together, they develop a unique plan that is specific to each individual and instills in them a fearless approach to winning the battle.
Cancer Crackdown started as a small group on Facebook in January 2012 with a few people who wanted to share some information on tips and best practices during chemo. Cancer Crackdown has grown and we are now serving cancer fighters all over the world!!
Cancer fighters that can no longer take chemo or choose not to are in dire need of accurate information and guidance. Due to the vast amount of information available and many untrustworthy sources on the internet, it makes it difficult for us to make decisions about what is viable information and thus dissuades many from knowing what is worth trying. We have and will continue to research topics of interest and ensure credibility of sources. We help put patients in contact with proper practitioners in their area and locate services for them that may benefit their treatment. We are in the process of building on the services we are able to provide to cancer patients that we are so fortunate to partner with during their difficult time.

Is Smoking Associated with an Increased Risk of Developing a Second Smoking-Related Cancer?

Wednesday, November 19th, 2014

logo1267406_md

A new study published in the J of Clinical Oncology that analyzed five large prospective cohort studies reported that lung cancer (stage 1) bladder, kidney., and head and neck cancer survivors who smoked 20 or more cigarettes a day prior to their cancer diagnosis have an up to five-fold higher risk of developing a second smoking-related cancer when compared to survivors of the same cancer who never smoked. This association of smoking and 2nd cancer  was similar to smoking and primary cancers.

Researc hers said “As survival improves for a number of smoke-related cancers, patients are living longer, however,, smoking may increase the risk of developing a second smoking-related cancer among these survivors.” They continued on to say that health care professionals should emphasize the importance of smoking-cessation to all patients, including cancer survivors.

Data for these results included 5 prospective studies which included 2,552 patients with stage 1 lung, 6.386 with bladder, 3,179 with kidney, and 2,967 with head and neck cancer.  A total of 866 second primary smoking-related cancers were diagnosed among the survivors and the association between smoking status prior to primary cancer diagnosis and second smoke-associated cancer risk were assessed. In all four groups those who smoked   20 or more cigarettes daily prior to their first diagnoses were more likely to develop aa second smoking-related cancer when compared to the cohort who never smoked. These risks ranged from 3.3 times more like to 5.3 times more like likely depending upon the site of the cancer. In addition, those who were current smokers but smoked under 20 cigarettes a day or former smokers who quit before their first cancer diagnosis also had an elevated risk of developing a second primary cancer than those who never smoked.
