cholesterol-screening-pic-for-webMany researchers thought there was no link between breast cancer and cholesterol but a new study published in the Breast Cancer Research Journal shows they may be connected.  Scientists at Johns Hopkins University looked at patients with high levels of HDL (“good’ cholesterol”).  Here’s what they found…

They found that those high levels can increase a patient’s chance of developing breast cancer cells.  The researchers also discovered that women who have high levels of HDL may have a greater risk of developing more aggressive types of breast cancer.

Researchers are now working on ways to block HDL receptors within the breast cancer cells in order to prevent the elevated risk.  Doctors recommend checking in with your primary care physician to ensure both “good” and “bad” cholesterol levels are in the normal range.

  1. In den ersten Wochen war ich realistisch genug keine Wunder zu erwarten, aber
    vor allem in den letzten Tagen habe ich hoffnungsvoll jeden Tag in den Spiegel geschaut
    und darauf gewartet, dass ich dort etwas sehe, worauf ich doch so sehr hoffe zu sehen. Kennt ihr das, wenn
    man glaubt etwas zu sehen und dann doch daran zweifelt, weil
    man sich nicht sicher ist ob man es zu sehr sehen will.
    So stand ich tag täglich unentschlossen da und war kein bisschen schlauer :
    ) Um genau diese Unentschlossenheit endlich abzustellen, wurde es
    also höchste Zeit es objektiv zu beurteilen. Dafür ist der Fotobeweis
    schließlich da :) Also schauen wir uns mal an, was die
    Kamera als objektiver Beobachter dazu sagt.

  2. Seduction – behavior aimed at attracting a partner / partner without using violence.
    It can lead to sexual intercourse or to create an informal relationship, sometimes
    culminating in marriage. Seduction is not a crime, but it is for some
    people considered morally reprehensible action (especially
    in relation to minors).

    Seduction tactics are considered in the current evolutionary psychology.

    In this sense, the term can also be used for animals.

    The techniques used in the seduction

    The seduction is used most of the techniques of persuasion and manipulation, and social acknowledgment,
    liking, authority, deficiency [1]. Robert Greene analyzing the
    available historical sources has identified a few female and male identity seducer, characterized according to their own, appealing qualities.
    These include:

    Siren – ie for example. Aphrodite, Marilyn Monroe or Queen Cleopatra, is not particularly beautiful, seductive voice and exterior expressed in the airy way of moving, distinctive clothing and sugerowanemu seksapilowi.

    The Libertine – eg. Cardinal Richelieu or Gabriele D’Annunzio, seductive is disrespectful way in which women are treated at the same time very much their lusting.

    Because it has the reputation of a debauched acts here as a rule of social proof,
    strengthening persuasion.
    Perfect lover – eg. Giacomo Casanova or Madame de Pompadour, reads
    perfectly seduced fantasies and needs of people whose roots often lie
    in childhood.
    Dandy – eg. Rodolpho Guglielmi, Lou Andreas-Salomé or
    Gregory House, a very attractive non-conformist attitude is dandy for social conventions and the free formation of
    identity, which seems to be very rare.
    Big baby – eg. Charlie Chaplin, Emma Crouch or Josephine
    Baker, and children, a little naive and trusting attitude conducive to the formation of relationships in the form of
    parental feelings in a person seduced.
    Coquette – eg. Josephine or Andy Warhol, alternately seducing showing
    excessive interest and utter coldness in relation to the seduced person.
    Wizard – eg. Benjamin Disraeli, Pamela Churchill and Zhou
    Enlai, through empathy can become a mirror for
    the feelings and emotions seduced person.
    Charismatic – eg. Joan of Arc, Grigori Rasputin, Elvis Presley or Jiddu Krishnamurti, charismatic
    acts seductively on the crowds, by their stubborn pursuit of the objective and the full involvement of
    oratorical abilities.
