Breast Cancer Survivors
Although the benefits of sun exposure for cancer reduction were mentioned in Apperly (1941) and Peller and Stephenson (1937), the school of thought that low exposure to UV-B is associated with an increased risk of non-cutaneous cancers apparently began in earnest with Garland and Garland (1980), who suggested that vitamin D reduces the risk of colon cancer. Papers that suggest sunlight reduces the risk for breast cancer are Gorham et al. (1989), Garland et al. (1990), Gorham et al. (1990), and Grant (2002a) papers indicating a reduced risk for other non-cutaneous cancers were written by Grant (2002b, c 2003) and Lefkowitz and Garland (1994). Grant (2002b, 2003) found inverse associations between regional summer UV-B irradiance and cancer risk for 14 kinds of cancer. Table 12.1 lists current findings and associated references on the effects of UV-B exposure and vitamin D, and the risks of acquiring, and mortality rates for, 15 different cancers. A few studies made direct associations...
In addition to advances in chemotherapy and vaccination strategies to control the disease agents, a great deal of attention has been applied to control strategies that can reduce populations of freshwater vectors of human diseases. The most commonly used approach is the application of toxicants to control the vectors. These can be done over large spatial scales (e.g., aerial applications of insecticides in 11 West African counties to control black fly vectors of onchocercia-sis) or locally (e.g., the distribution of pesticide impregnated bed nets to control malaria vectors at the village level).
In 1937, the US NCI was founded in order to initiate and coordinate research related to cancer. In 1955, the NCI created the Cancer Chemotherapy National Service Center (CCNSC) with the aim of developing a program of screening chemical substances for anti-cancer activity. Initially envisioned as a voluntary cooperative cancer chemotherapy program, the CCNSC has gradually grown into a major drug research and development unit. CCNSC (now incorporated into NCI's Developmental Therapeutics Program) cooperates with academia and is heavily involved with the pharmaceutical industry in the acquisition and screening of potential anti-cancer agents.
In addition, there exists the option of relying on the body's natural recuperative powers the do-nothing option. Over the past millenia the human immune system has evolved into a competent and sometimes fearless combatant of disease. A large percentage of all afflictions and diseases will be vanquished by the human immune system if it is left to do the job. In fact, many diseases from which we suffer today, such as breast cancer and coronary heart disease, are just beginning to be understood as a 'healthy' body's reaction to a change in lifestyle away from patterns to which the body had become adapted on an evolutionary time scale. The do-nothing option is the baseline used in evaluating the costs and benefits, or cost-effectiveness, of particular products in the health care market. Thus, discussion of promising pharmaceuticals, whether derived from plant or other sources, must not lose sight of the ultimate market in which performance is measured.
Worldwide, some 40 per cent of all prescriptions written today are either based on or synthesized from natural compounds from different species. Not only do these species save lives, they contribute to a booming pharmaceutical industry worth over 40 billion annually.33 For example, the Pacific yew, a slow-growing tree found in the ancient forests of the Pacific Northwest, was historically considered a trash tree and was burned after clear cutting. A substance in its bark - taxol - was identified as one of the most promising treatments for ovarian and breast cancer. More than 3 million American heart disease sufferers would find their lives cut short within 72 hours without digitalis, a drug derived from the purple foxglove. The American Cancer Research Institute identified 3,000 plants that contain active ingredients against cancer 70 of them originate in the tropics.34
