Scientists find that mobile phones could increase brain cancer risk

As reported by Sky News, according to scientists at the World Health Organisation (WHO), the use of mobile phones could increase your chances of getting brain cancer.

The scientists have classified mobile devices as ‘possibly carcinogenic to humans’ and so have advised people to use their hands-free sets or text instead of calling. The scientists came to this classification after the discovery that the radiofrequency electromagnetic fields associated with handsets potentially heightened the chances of suffering glioma, a malignant form of the disease.

Institute of Cancer Research Scientists win Royal Society of Chemistry Award

As reported by Medical News Today, scientists at the Institute Cancer Research (ICR)  have received  an award from the Royal Society of Chemistry (RSC) for the discovery and clinical development of abiraterone, a prostate cancer treatment.

The development of this prostate cancer drug is of particular significance as it is one of only a hand full of drugs which have been found to extend the lives of men suffering with late-stage prostate cancer.

Abiraterone has recently received approval in the US for men suffering with metastatic prostate cancer whom were no longer responding to chemotherapy. European approval is also pending.

The RSC is the largest European organisation that focuses on advancing chemical sciences. Their President, David Phillips  stated the award was given  “in recognition of their exemplary teamwork and scientific innovation that took abiraterone from idea to successful multi-centre Phase III clinical trials for the treatment of prostate cancer.”
