A New study, released September 12th 2011, demonstrates that long-term use of certain analgesics may bring about an increase in the risk of renal cell cancer. This is especially true among users of no steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs or NSAIDs.
Aspirin and acetaminophen were not included.
They are usually prescribed or obtain freely over-the-counter and taken for the treatment of acute or chronic conditions.
Obese and hypertensive individuals are at a greater risk of developing renal cell carcinoma. In experimental labs, lipid peroxidation of the proximal renal tubules is a necessary mechanistic pathway used in renal carcinogenesis, induced by several different chemicals.
An estimated 60 million Americans use these pills systematically. In 2008, more than one-third of American adults were obese with one out of three having high blood pressure.
