Now, she has turned to vom Saals longtime collaborator, University of Tufts researcher Ana Soto to advance the claim BPA increased the risk of mammary cancers in rats and therefore might pose a risk to humans. The rub as I reported recently here on Forbes is that Soto and her co-authors were forced to walk back this claim by the journal that published the study because the statistical data showed no such risk. As Stanley Young, Assistant Director for Bioinformatics at the National Institute of Statistical Sciences, said when he was shown the papers statistical data: There is no dose response for cancer, which is their claim. The observed results are consistent with chance. (See here and here for earlier stories on the Soto claim). Despite this, Soto tells Szabo that the science is settled on the risk. Szabo also cites uncited work on BPA in monkeys as evidence of risk from BPA, but not the recent work of the Food and Drug Administration on monkeys which shows it is not. Even more astonishing for a news report published in conjunction with National Breast Cancer Awareness Month, Szabo has completely missed several signal moments in the BPA-Breast cancer saga. The first is the publication of an Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) funded study in Food and Chemical Toxicologywhich shows that blood levels of active BPA as measured by the most rigorous analytical methods -are vastly lower than the levels required to activate the cell receptors involved in triggering breast cancer. As the authors from the Pacific Northwest National Laboratory and the FDAs National Center for Toxicological Research (Teeguarden et al.) -note: Typical serum BPA concentrations are orders of magnitude lower than levels measurable by modern analytical methods and below concentrations required to occupy more than 0.0009% of Type II Estrogen Binding Sites, GPR30, ER or ER receptors. Occupancies would be higher, but 0.04%, for the highest affinity receptor, ERR. Our results show limited or no potential for estrogenicity in humans, and question reports of measurable BPA in human serum. In other words, breast cancer from BPA is, in the real world, all but impossible. The second signal moment USA Todays health writer misses isthe recent publication in the journal Breast Cancer Research of a letter by Antonia Calafat, the renowned Centers for Disease Control expert on biomonitoring.
USA in talks with Iran over friendly
Donovan, speaking about holding the record outright with his next goal, said “it would be nice to get it and get it out of the way so that there’s no attention on it.” He added: I would trade, maybe not all of them, but most of them for another championship ring.” When the game ended, the Galaxy was tied with the Colorado Rapids for fourth place with 48 points in the Western Conference. The two teams were only four points behind first-place Real Salt Lake , three points behind second-place Seattle and one point behind third-place Portland, which was playing Vancouver on Sunday night. The top five teams at the end of the regular season qualify for the playoffs. The Galaxy, seeking its third consecutive MLS championship, has three games left in the regular season. This was the third and final game of the regular season between the Galaxy and Chivas USA, which share StubHub Center as their home venue, in what’s known as the “SuperClasico” series. The Galaxy overwhelmed Chivas USA despite the absence of Coach Bruce Arena, who was suspended for the game for leaving the coach’s area during an argument at the previous weekend’s game against Portland. With Dave Sarachan, the team’s associate coach, at the helm, the Galaxy scored in the sixth minute when Keane, standing just inside the six-yard box, took a pass from Donovan and rolled the ball past goalkeeper Dan Kennedy. Donovan scored his first goal in the 23rd minute inside the six-yard box after taking a cross from Zardes, and Zardes scored in the 26th minute when he outdueled Mario de Luna, got free and kicked the ball past Kennedy. Donovan’s second goal came in the 42nd minute after he caught up with a looping, perfectly placed pass in front of him from Pablo Mastroeni, and Keane scored his second in the 90th minute. “We’re at a point where we needed three points,” Sarachan said. “It gets us closer to a playoff position.” Four Galaxy players are called up to national teams Four Galaxy players were called to their national teams for upcoming World Cup qualifiers: Donovan and Omar Gonzales for the United States, Keane for Ireland and goalkeeper Jaime Penedo for Panama. It’s unclear if they’ll have to sit out any MLS games.
Things are in motion and I believe a final decision will be made after the World Cup draw on December 6. If the United States and Iran should be drawn into the same group for the World Cup, it is unlikely that they will play each other ahead of the tournament because of tactical considerations. For 90 minutes [its] an ideal gesture towards diplomacy and could be a launching pad towards respectful, honest and peaceful solutions, wrote Gaspar. The world would benefit from such discussions. The United States Soccer Federation told FOX Soccer that it has reached out to all nine other countries that have already qualified for the 2014 World Cup, which will be held in Brazil next summer from June 12 through July 13, without specifically targeting Iran as an opponent. Weve reached out to every team thats qualified for the World Cup because we know that a lot of teams are looking at the possibility of coming to the United States for a pre-World Cup training camp, said US Soccer spokesman Neil Buethe. Have we reached out to Iran? Yes. But weve talked to all these federations. Weve reached out to every federation thats qualified for the World Cup. And well continue to reach out to all the other federations that qualify in the coming month. TRAVEL PLANS Fans and players can now rejoice. USA books World Cup ticket after a long, arduous journey . Pre-World Cup tune-up games are typically arranged once the draw has been held with teams often seeking to play countries similar in style to their group stage opponents without meeting them directly.
