Cancer Treatment Centers of America are headquartered in Boca Raton, Florida, where they work as a national network of five hospitals that are committed to providing adult patients with cancer care. There are fully dedicated to advancements in the medical field aligned with treatment, surgery, radiation, immunotherapy and chemotherapy. They recently announced that they will be joining together with some of the NFL alumni and LabCorp to assist in prostate cancer screenings. Together, they will help raise awareness for the disease along with the educational benefits of early detection. The screenings will take place from September 1st – October 15th. Some patients that are older than 40 years of age may qualify for free screenings through any of the LabCorp facilities as long as certain criterion is met. All other screenings will be available for a $25 fee offered throughout the sign up period. The screenings must be completed within six months from the sign up date.
A devastating amount of people are diagnosed with prostate cancer. In fact, one in seven men will be diagnosed with the disease within their lifetime of existence. NFL alumni coaches will be present at the Prostate Pet Talk campaign to help raise awareness for the disease and educate on the importance of early detection screening. Risk factors will be discussed among patients with regards to their family history and race. In recent studies, it is shown that African American men are more susceptible by 70% to be diagnosed with prostate cancer. The campaigns will be held at four different locations which include Atlanta, Chicago, Phoenix and Tulsa. For more information on the subject, make sure to listen for the public service announcements airing nationally through the month of September. Also be sure to check the Cancer Treatment Centers of America’s website for more information on the screenings.
The first offshore oil drilling well, by a private company, in more than 80 years, has been established in the Mexican waters. Three companies, Premier Oil, Talos Energy and Sierra Oil & Gas went in on the massive project together. After Mexico voted to open its ailing oil industry to private investments, the three companies bid and won the rights to the project.
It is estimated that the Zama-1 oil well, located in the Sureste Basin, has between 100 and 500 million barrels of crude oil. Despite the massive amount of oil that is expected to come from the well, drilling is only expected to take up to 90 days; however, those 90 days of drilling will cost a whopping $16 million dollars.
Talos is the company operating the oil well and holds a 35% stake in project. Sierra Oil & Gas holds the highest stake at 40% and Premier Oil holds the least amount at 25%.
Luckily for these companies it is widely believed, within the industry, that there is a high geological chance of success. There is little doubt that, as the first private oil well, the project will be closely watched within the industry.
Talos, one of the companies in on the project, is an independent oil and gas company based out of Houston, Texas. The company is committed to their operations being safe and environmentally compliant. They also have a continuous goal to find and develop new and better ways to operate projects.
The majority of Talos’ operations take place in the Gulf of Mexico and along the Texas and Louisiana Gulf Coast. They have seen a lot of success in this area producing more than 16,000 barrels of oil per day last year. Talos is on the hunt to expand and grow their business and, with between $475 and $500 million in revenues this year, they are in a position to do just that.
The immune system does not attack cancer cells. Why does the system designed to protect the body from bacteria, fungi, viruses and other parasite not recognize one of the most dreaded diseases? It’s actually a good thing that the body does not attack cancer cells. Our immune system, under normal circumstances, is not designed to attack its own tissues. One line of research aims to get the body to recognize cancer cells as possible attackers.
The Cancer Treatment Centers of America regularly takes out adds telling potential customers that it uses immune-based therapies in order to target the tumors, but the 30-second television spots do not explain what the process means. This unique form of cancer treatment involves teaching the body’s immune system to treat any cancerous cells as foreign invaders. By using this method, the researchers hope to get the body to fight off its own cancers.
This method is not without risks, but it is less stressful than chemotherapy when it is successful. Some patients develop autoimmune disease months or years after they finish the treatment. An autoimmune disease is when the body attacks its own tissues.
Some of these diseases are treated with low doses of chemotherapy, just like cancer is. This side effect is perhaps unavoidable for some patients. While no one is sure what causes people to develop autoimmune conditions for certain, there is a genetic component. Environmental factors also play a role. People who already have autoimmune diseases should consider other lines of treatment first.

Combining styles and eras is popular currently, but for Richard Mishaan it is something more or less of religion over the last 30 years.
The concept of properties standing as cozy repositories for art or other gatherings is major for mishaan as witnessed by the soHo loft. He designed it for a couple, and the item combines everything from contemporary paintings, taxidermy, and grand antique furniture. In his personal Cartagena bedroom, there exist 11 paintings of high ships that tightly hung on the wall. It is not fine artworks but strong proof of personality. Mishaan does much of the work for hotels and private residences including revamping of suites. With various clients, a random variety of most expensive design alternatives is just fine.
