  I tanned daily as a teen and got skin cancer at 25 Now Brittany Winchester is determined to raise awareness of skin cancer prevention.I first started tanning the summer I went to freshman prom - for my prom look, I decided like, duh, I need to be tan. So I started using a tanning bed and I loved it; it was the most relaxing moment of my day. It was warm and comfortable and I [got to the point where] I could even take a nap in the tanning bed! And then, being tan, I loved how that looked.

Daily tomato consumption may be linked to a decreased risk of skin cancer, researchers report. Academics at Ohio State University have conducted studies into how nutritional interventions can alter the risk for skin cancers. They gave male mice a diet of 10 per cent tomato powder daily for 35 weeks, then exposed them to ultraviolet (UV) light. On average, the rodents showed a 50 per cent decrease in skin cancer tumours compared to those that ate no dehydrated tomato.

Study co-author Jessica Cooperstone theorises that the relationship between tomatoes and cancer is related to dietary carotenoids, the pigmenting compounds that give tomatoes their colour, and believes that they may protect skin against UV light damage. "Lycopene, the primary carotenoid in tomatoes, has been shown to be the most effective antioxidant of these pigments," she said. "However, when comparing lycopene administered from a whole food (tomato) or a synthesised supplement, tomatoes appear more effective in preventing redness after UV exposure, suggesting other compounds in tomatoes may also be at play."

Previous human clinical trials suggest that eating tomato paste over time can dampen sunburns, perhaps thanks to carotenoids from the plants that are deposited in the skin of humans after eating, and may be able to protect against UV light damage.

There were no significant differences in tumor number for the female mice in the study. However, prior investigations have shown that male mice develop tumours earlier after UV exposure and that their tumours are more numerous, larger and more aggressive. "This study showed us that we do need to consider sex when exploring different preventive strategies," said the study's senior author, Tatiana Oberyszyn. "What works in men may not always work equally well in women and vice versa."

‘Clean Eating Culture’ Means Brits Risk Misdiagnosing Bowel Cancer For Food Intolerance .
“Clean eating culture” could be leading to a rise in Brits misdiagnosing symptoms of cancer, with some trying to manage crucial warning signs themselves with diet changes. That’s according to new research from Bupa, which reveals that one in 10 (11%) have self-diagnosed themselves as gluten or dairy intolerant within the last year.What’s more, nearly one in four (24%) people are treating potentially serious symptoms such as bloating or weight loss by changing their diet rather than seeing a doctor.
