NSAID Use Increases Kidney Cancer Risk

May 30, 2013

Renal cell cancer (RCC) is the most common type of kidney cancer. It is also one of the more lethal.

Nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs or NSAIDs are commonly used over-the-counter drugs which include aspirin, ibuprofen (Motrin, Nurofen, Advil, Nuprin, etc.) naproxen, COX-2 inhibitors and many others. But NSAIDs are not without side effects.

Research has found that “regular use of nonaspirin NSAIDs was associated with an increased RCC risk.” The study found that “there was a dose-response relationship between duration of nonaspirin NSAID use and RCC risk.” Taking nonaspirin NSAIDs regularly for more than 4 years increased the risk of RCC by 36%. Taking NSAIDs regularly for more than 10 years almost tripled the risk.

What must always be remembered is that there is no drug that doesn’t have a side effect. Side effects can take years, even decades to be discovered, but the risks are real and should be considered before taking any drug.

One Response to “ NSAID Use Increases Kidney Cancer Risk ”

    Who Tolls The Bell?

    Who among the thousands of US chiropractors has asked America’s health care Establishment to adequately forewarn America’s hundreds of thousands of impending victims of the iatrogenic epidemic?

    Chiropractors would know that in the USA and in 2004, 3 MDs and a PhD reported: “The most stunning statistic, however, is that the total number of deaths caused by conventional medicine is an astounding 783,936 per year. It is now evident that the American medical system is the leading cause of death and injury in the US”

    In his 1995 book “Bad Medicine”, Australian investigative journalist, John Archer, derived his information via a meta-analysis of some of the public domain medical literature regarding iatrogenic harm. He quoted some of the medical data about iatrogenic harm, to conclude approximately 50,000 iatrogenic deaths occur each year. [iii] This implies that iatrogenic death may be a or the leading cause of death in Australia.

    13 years ago the Australian Chiropractors Association (WA) made a submission to the State government which has in effect led to the integrity of Australia’s health care Establishment being tested.

    Information about the iatrogenic epidemic/pandemic has been widely circulated to key people in Australia’s government and media with requests to ensure that future impending victims of Australia’s iatrogenic epidemic are adequately forewarned.

    Their informed continuing total silence imperils those impending victims.

    No one tolls the bell.
