Readers:

As summer gets closer, you need to remember that when 
enjoying all of the outdoor activities, keep yourself 
hydrated. 

I can't tell you how many times having a bottle of water 
has saved me. Drink plenty of water and drink often. 
Even if you don't feel hot or worn down from the heat. 
Dehydration can strike at anytime without warning. 

Just be safe and enjoy all that summer has to offer. 

Regards,
Steve

Diabetes Drugs May Lower Risk Of Lung Cancer

NEW YORK (Reuters Health) - The use of diabetes drugs 
called thiazolidinediones, such as rosiglitazone (Avandia) 
and pioglitazone (Actos), may reduce the risk of lung 
cancer, according to a report in the Journal of Clinical 
Oncology. 

These are preliminary findings, Dr. Rangaswamy Govindarajan 
from the University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences, 
Little Rock, told Reuters Health. "Physicians should be 
cautioned not to start using these agents for cancer 
prevention." 

Govindarajan and colleagues investigated the effect of 
thiazolidinediones on the risk of lung, prostate, and colon 
cancer in men aged 40 years and older with diabetes, using 
a database covering 10 Veterans Affairs medical centers. 

Among 87,678 individuals identified, there were 1137 cases 
of colon cancer, 3246 cases of prostate cancer and 1371 
cases of lung cancer. 

After accounting for all other risk factors, patients who 
were prescribed thiazolidinediones had a 33 percent lower 
risk of lung cancer than patients who were not prescribed 
thiazolidinediones, the researchers report. These drugs 
may also reduce the risk of prostate and colon cancer, but 
the findings were not statistically significant. 

The lung cancer risk reduction seen with thiazolidinedione 
use was much greater among African American men than among 
white men, the researchers note. Similar subgroup analyses 
yielded inconsistent results for prostate and colorectal 
cancer. 

"We are still in the process of designing further studies," 
Govindarajan said.
