1 issue of the Annals of Internal Medicine, investigators sifted through several Danish cancer databases to gather the ongoing health histories of more than 10,000 cancer of the colon patients diagnosed between 1994 and 2011. Patients were between the age range of 30 and 85. Medical records were stacked against aspirin and nonaspirin NSAID consumption patterns – – this is feasible because in Denmark most NSAIDs and low-dose aspirins are obtainable by prescription only. A comparison of malignancy patients with an increase of than 100,000 cancer-free Danes revealed that regular, long-term usage of low-dosage aspirin and NSAIDs appeared to confer long-term protection against colon cancer. The biggest benefit was associated with NSAIDs with the highest amount of so-called COX-2 selectivity.‘Bottom line: if one is consuming, they should never drive an automobile. They are placing innocent lives at risk.’ In the new study, a team led by CDC investigator Amy Jewett looked at 2012 data from an annual authorities survey. They found that ‘an estimated 4.2 million adults reported at least one alcohol-impaired driving event in the preceding 30 days, resulting in around 121 million episodes [per year].’ Rates varied widely between states, and were often tied to a state’s drunk-driving laws and regulations, the CDC said. The Midwest fared the most severe in terms of drunk driving, but that’s no surprise, the united team said, because ‘people living in the Midwest possess consistently reported higher alcohol-impaired traveling rates than those surviving in other regions.’ The profile of the ‘typical’ drunk driver will most likely not surprise many, either – – a binge-drinking young male.
