Melbourne | Published: September 11 2016 8:11 pm For alcohol drinkers physical activity may decrease the risks of dying from cancer Top News Exercising at even moderate levels may prevent some of the harmful effects of drinking -such as cancer and death a first-of-its-kind study has found Researchers led by University of Sydney found that for alcohol drinkers physical activity may decrease the risks of dying both from cancer and from “all-cause mortality” that is deaths from any cause They drew on responses from eight health surveys carried out in the UK between 1994 and 2006 which looked at the impact of physical activity and alcohol consumption on health outcomes “Our research suggests that physical activity has substantial health benefits even in the presence of potentially unhealthy behaviours such as drinking alcohol” said Associate Professor Emmanuel Stamatakis from the University of Sydney “Among physically inactive people we saw that the risk for cancer and all-cause mortality was higher even at relatively low levels of drinking” Stamatakis said “We also noticed a dose-response relationship between drinking alcohol and cancer deaths that is the risk of cancer deaths increased as alcohol consumption increased But this was not the case among physically active people” he said Compared with never having been a drinker drinking even within recommended levels was associated with a 36 per cent greater risk of death from cancer as well as a 13 per cent greater risk of death from any cause However this risk was substantially lessened or offset among those who were physically active at the basic recommended level (equivalent to at least 150 minutes per week of moderate intensity activity such as brisk walking) or at the upper recommended level (equivalent to at least 300 minutes of moderate intensity activity per week) In the physically active groups only harmful levels of drinking were associated with increased risk of cancer death and death from any cause “We cannot suggest that doing some exercise is a licence to drink more alcohol as alcohol abuse causes significant health and societal damage” said Stamatakis “But given that so many people do drink alcohol our study gives yet another compelling reason to encourage and empower people to be physically active and ask policy makers to invest in physical activity-friendly environments” he said The surveys included questions about alcohol intake and physical activity levels among those aged 40 years and over The research was published in the British Journal of Sports

gradually brightening sun won’t vaporize our planet’s water for at least another 1 billion to 15 billion years—hundreds of millions of years later than a slightly older model had forecast The findings won’t change your retirement plans but could imply that habitable Earth-like alien worlds are more common than scientists thought Humans are warming the planet by emitting heat-trapping gases like carbon dioxide But behind the scenes a far slower deadlier warming process is unfolding The sun is getting brighter and hotter over time As it does more water evaporates from Earth’s surface into the atmosphere where it traps additional heat from the planet This water-driven greenhouse effect will keep going long after people have stopped burning fossil fuels that now add CO2 to the atmosphere Eventually Earth’s greenhouse effect will spin out of control vaporizing all of our planet’s water and ending life as we know it How long does Earth have Climate modelers disagree In one recent study planetary scientist Ravi Kopparapu of Pennsylvania State University (Penn State) University Park and colleagues used computers to model how Earth would respond to increasing solar radiation Just 6% more sunlight was enough to send the greenhouse effect into overdrive and vaporize Earth’s water the researchers found At the current rate of solar brightening—just over 1% every 100 million years—Earth would suffer this “runaway greenhouse” in 600 million to 700 million years Earth will suffer some preliminary effects leading up to that too After just 150 million years the researchers found the stratosphere will warm enough to let some water vapor reach high in the sky where solar radiation will break it down into molecules that can escape to space In this "moist greenhouse" the planet would be too hot for complex surface life but a few hardy marine organisms and microbes could soldier on But not so fast says Eric Wolf a doctoral student at the University of Colorado Boulder Kopparapu’s model is pretty rudimentary Wolf says: It analyzes what happens in one dimension—altitude As a result the model excludes clouds and wrongly assumes that climate factors like humidity are the same everywhere on Earth Wolf and his Boulder colleague Owen Brian Toon simulated Earth’s future using a more realistic 3D climate model from the National Center for Atmospheric Research Their model included clouds and a host of other details such as regional differences in moisture Wolf says It also assumed that atmospheric CO2 levels would start at 500 parts per million—25% higher than today—and stay there indefinitely Then Wolf and Toon cranked up the sun After they made our star 155% brighter than it is today the simulated Earth had warmed from its current average of 15°C to 40°C That’s hot but not too hot for liquid water to survive The oceans didn’t boil off The stratosphere also didn’t heat up so no moist greenhouse occurred either The upshot: Earth has at least 15 billion years left to support life the researchers report this month in Geophysical Research Letters If humans last that long Earth would be generally uncomfortable for them but livable in some areas just below the polar regions Wolf suggests Earth warms slower than in Kopparapu’s model Wolf explains because clouds and dry regions such as deserts both of which the 1D study lacked send a lot of heat back into space A similar 3D climate-modeling study reported last month in Nature found that a runaway greenhouse wouldn’t occur for at least 1 billion years The leader of that study—Jérémy Leconte an astrophysicist now at the University of Toronto in Canada—says his group’s earlier date for Earth’s demise than Wolf and Toon’s stems partly from differences in how the studies modeled clouds The 3D models shed new light on how long Earth could potentially support life says planetary scientist James Kasting of Penn State University Park who wasn’t involved in either study Still they may slightly underestimate how long Earth could support life he suggests The studies assume that CO2 levels stay the same Kasting says but they may actually fall as Earth warms That’s because calcium carbonate rock formation and other natural carbon-sequestering processes might speed up in warmer conditions pulling CO2 from the atmosphere and blunting warming at least temporarily He also cautions that the studies don’t model life’s response so they can’t assess how long life actually will survive Kasting says the studies may be most useful for refining estimates of sunlike stars’ habitable zones: the range of distances at which orbiting rocky planets can host abundant liquid water Kopparapu’s 1D study on which Kasting was a co-author suggested that our solar system’s habitable zone starts at 097 to 099 astronomical units (AUs) just inside Earth’s average orbit of 1 AU The new studies if correct suggest that Earth-like worlds orbiting sunlike stars have a bit more breathing room: Leconte’s group’s study pegs the inner limit at 095 AU and Wolf and Toon’s at 093 This change could mean that our galaxy harbors 5% to 6% more habitable planets than previously thought Leconte estimateswhen

Court will hear final arguments starting this week in a landmark case over drug patents that could change the rules for the country’s healthcare sector and potentially curb its global role as a supplier of cut-price generic medicines The Supreme Court hearing pits Swiss drugmaker Novartis AG against India’s patent officewhich has refused to grant a patent on the company’s cancer drug Glivec on the grounds that it is not a new medicine but an amended version of a known compound A patent would give Novartis exclusive marketing rights and stop cheaper versions being produced by India’s generic drugmakerswho supply medicine to the country’s 12 billion people and to poorer nations across the world The case has rekindled tensions between Big Pharma and Indiafollowing a decision by the patent office in March to strip Germany’s Bayer AG of its exclusive right to sell another costly cancer drugNexavarbecause most Indians cannot afford it The hearing involving Novartis starts on Wednesday It is expected to last several weekswith a verdict a month or two later Western firms see huge potential in India’s rapidly growing economy but are wary of lax protection for intellectual property They argue India is failing to recognise valuable medical innovation Their critics who include international aid groups and Indian generic drug manufacturers say a win for Novartis would jeopardise the supply of cheap medicine to hundreds of millions of people in India and around the worldsince India is the world’s biggest exporter of cheap generic drugs “The stakes are very high on both sides” said Leena Menghaneya manager in New Delhi for Medecins Sans Frontieres (MSF)which relies on Indian-made generic drugs to treat AIDS and other diseases in Africa and many poor countries Novartis’ drug was approved in 2001 in the United Stateswhere it is sold under the trade name Gleevec and can cost $70000 a year Patients take one or two pills a daydepending on the dosage Discount programmes mean it is available for a lot less in poor countries and in India more than 95 percent of patients receive it free of charge under a company donation schemeaccording to Novartis Indian generic versionsmeanwhilecost about $2500 a year Indian generic companies can produce drugs at a fraction of the cost of originator firms like Novartis or Bayer because their costs are lower and they do not need to plough money back into future research Menghaney fears a decision by the Supreme Court to make it easier for drugmakers to win patents by giving way to Novartis would undermine India’s position as “pharmacy to the developing world” Novartis says such fears are unfoundedarguing there are many legal ways to get cheap generic drugs to poorer nations A loss for Novartis in the case would not have a big financial impactsince India is never likely to account for more than a small fraction of Glivec’s global saleswhich totalled $47 billion last year The real concern for the industry is that a rebuff would confirm India as a country where patents are exceptionally hard to secure At the heart of the case is dispute over what level of innovation is needed to secure a patent in Indiawhere section 3(d) of the Indian Patent Law sets strict restrictions on multiple patents for one drug Novartis has been fighting since 2006 to get a patent on an amended form of Glivecwhich oncologists view as a major advance in treating chronic myeloid leukaemia and some gastrointestinal cancers Its bid has been rejected because an older version of Glivec was granted a patent in 1993 in some marketsalthough not in India where drug patents were not applicable at the time The case matters to Novartis because India is an important emerging market The Swiss company says it needs certainty if it is to invest in the country in the long term “The patent for Glivec is not really the issue here It is just an example of us wanting very clear legal clarity about what kind of innovation is patentable” Paul Herrlinghead of the Novartis Institute for Tropical Diseasestold Reuters The institute is a unit of the pharmaceutical company that focuses on diseases in the developing world In contrast to other countriesIndia’s patent law prohibits patents on a newer form of a known drug unless it offers a significant advance in efficacy The aim is to prevent “evergreening”or adding new patents that tweak a product to extend exclusivity Novartis argues this does not apply to Glivecsince the initial patent was for a version of the drug that needed a major re-design to make it effective “The judgment will have a far-reaching impact” said Deepak Malikanalyst at brokerage Emkaywho believes other emerging countries like Brazil and China will be watching closely Emerging market economies are increasingly wary about ceding too much market power to Western drugmakerswho are targeting their expanding middle classes as an important growth market at a time when US and European sales are flagging Chinafor examplerecently amended its patent laws to enable companies to produce generic versions of patented drugs in certain circumstancesalthough the measure has not yet been used It boils down to balancing patents against patientsMenghaney of MSF believes “If you make patents easily available in India there will be less ability to produce different kinds of generics”
