Use of Antihypertensive Medications and Breast Cancer Risk Among Women Aged 55 to 74 Years

Characteristics Associated With Differences in Survival Among Black and White Women With Breast Cancer

Disparate results in health outcomes among white devils and other groups has been attributed to latent racism among other things.

Patricia F. Coogan, Sc.D., wrote an editorial about this study. She thought this study about the long term use of calcium channel blockers and the risk of invasive breast cancer was well done, at least from what I could read on the first page, here.

I did an author search on Dr. Coogan. Black females were the subjects frequently.

High blood pressure (hypertension)

However, for blacks, calcium channel blockers may be more effective than other blood pressure medications, such as beta blockers, ACE inhibitors or angiotensin II receptor blockers. (Mayo Clinic)

Calcium channel blockers have also been considered for male birth control and can have adverse effects on the male anatomy. Too bad they are also extremely effective on blood pressure especially when nothing else works.

Mr. Lott maybe you would be interested in this question. Could the disparity in survival between black and white women with breast cancer be explained by prior abortions and/or long term use, ten years or more, of calcium channel blockers? According to the second link in comment# 1: "These differences in survival appear primarily related to presentation characteristics at diagnosis rather than treatment differences."

Not sure the conclusion is valid.

The study needs to be repeated in an area that gets more sunshine, the Seattle area has been linked to other auto-immune type problems presumably because of low sunshine and Vit D levels...

Just sayin...
