The risks of dying from colon, breast, prostate and — for men — lung cancer were all lower among regular aspirin users, compared to non-users, the findings showed.

Having a drink each day may help protect a person's heart against disease, a large-scale study suggests.

But don't bend that elbow too often: drinking to excess can increase your risk for a variety of heart problems, the study also showed.

Some risk factors for B-cell non-Hodgkin lymphoma are the same in both groups, while others are unique to one or the other

New light has been shed on the interplay between genes, environment and disease with the publication of an Israeli study on risk factors for non-Hodgkin lymphoma (NHL) in Jewish and Arab populations.

As of 2012, Israel ranked first in the world in NHL incidence rates. This blood cancer represents the fifth most common malignancy in Israel and the eighth most common
