«We don’t know about whether or not it’s going to be a trend but we know for this year it was a significant effect,» he said

The 7.2 percent decline came a year after a big federal study linked menopause hormones to a higher risk of breast cancer, heart disease and other problems. Within months, millions of women stopped taking the pills.

A new analysis of federal cancer statistics, presented by researchers from the M.D. Anderson Cancer Center Thursday at a breast cancer conference in Texas, revealed the drop in tumors.

Why do doctors think the 2003 drop is largely due to hormones?

Cases declined most among women 50 and older, with tumors whose growth is fueled by estrogen — the age group and type of cancer most affected by hormone use. Around 2003, researchers said, 정선출장안마 these women heeded warnings and stopped using HRT — hormone replacement therapy.

But Dr. Freya Schnabel of New York Columbia Presbyterian says stopping hormone therapy may be just one reason for the dramatic decrease in breast cancer that year, reports CBS News correspondent Sharon Alfonsi. Better mammograms could play a part, too.

«If one thing is true,» Schnabel tells Alfonsi, «it’s that breast cancer is just not that simple.»

«It’s very difficult to wrap your arms around this subject of the various pros and cons of hormone replacement therapy,» adds CBS News medical correspondent Dr. Jon LaPook.

The drop also was seen in every single cancer registry that reports information to the federal government.

Researchers looked for a similar drop in other cancers, which could indicate something other than hormones was at work, «and we didn’t see anything,» said Kathy Cronin, a National Cancer Institute statistician who worked on the analysis.

When the 2003 numbers were first released a few months ago, they were grouped with 2001 and 2002 and portrayed as a leveling off of breast cancer after decades of steady rise. The big single-year drop was not pointed out because experts did not want to make too much of it without knowing whether the trend would continue.

However, Dr. Peter Ravdin, a breast cancer specialist at the University of Texas M.D. Anderson Cancer Center who led the new analysis, said the single year drop is important regardless, because it was so huge and came after years of steady increases.

«We don’t know about whether or not it’s going to be a trend but we know for this year it was a significant effect,» he said.

Doctors estimate that half of women who were taking hormones stopped after July 2002, when the federal Women’s Health Initiative study was halted because more women taking estrogen/progestin pills developed breast cancer or heart problems.

That led to new warning labels on the drugs and doctor groups urging women to use the lowest dose for the shortest time possible.

«The hypothesis is entirely plausible, that the discontinuation of hormone replacement therapy could be having an effect,» said Dr. Michael Thun of the American Cancer Society.

More than 8,000 breast cancer specialists from 80 countries are in San Antonio for the Charles A. Coltman Jr. Breast Cancer Symposium, the world’s largest annual conference on breast cancer, which strikes 200,000 American women each year.

The next set of cancer statistics is due out in April.

Lopez later apologized

(CBS News) The singer-actress is also a fashionable business tycoon who tells our Lee Cowan «workaholic» is not a dirty word:

(An earlier version of this report was originally broadcast on May 19, 2013.)

It left very little to the imagination; that green Versace dress that Jennifer Lopez wore to the Grammys back in 2000 was a daring design, to say the least.

But fashion has always been JLo’s passion — stylishly showing off those famous curves, both on stage and off.

With her recent single with rapper Pitt Bull, «Live It Up,» Lopez isn’t just back to making music. She’s back at the design table, too.

She inked a multi-million dollar design deal with retailing giant Kohl’s two years ago. Now, you name it — and HER name is on it.

She’s even designed her own brand of bedding — in addition to the sportswear, dresses, handbags, jewelry, shoes and sleepwear.

Does it get overwhelming? asked Cowan.

«Of course! Of course it’s overwhelming sometimes,» Lopez replied. «And yes, you’re right, at times, I’m like, Whoa, what am I taking on? I’m taking on so much. It’s so overwhelming.

«But I feel like, life is overwhelming, and you can’t be afraid of that.»

She got the attention of Forbes Magazine, which put her at the top of its list of the World’s Most Powerful Celebrities last year, in part because her deal with Kohl’s was so big — a 20-year contract with seven-year options.

«But that’s crazy, right?» said Cowan.

«I don’t know, who likes to talk about this stuff? Not me!» she replied. «I just like to play clothes, you know what I mean? Like, let’s design the clothes and let’s have fun. And 안산출장안마 what colors are we going to use? And ooh, I think you should do this shape. You know, like that’s my fun part.»

And that «fun part» is only a fraction of her design drive.

As a Chief Creative Officer, JLo is helping design a network, too: NUVO-TV, the first English-language cable station geared to a Latino audience.

«It seems that anything with a creative, design bent, you’re all over it,» said Cowan.

«That’s my thing,» she replied.

She is certainly in demand — and sometimes it’s gotten her in trouble.

In June she headlined a birthday party for the leader of Turkmenistan, a country with a dismal human rights record. Lopez later apologized.

She broke onto the scene in 1997 in «Selena,» the biography of the late Tejano music star. She soon branched into her own music — and her career took off.

It would be two guys making an incredible record.» In the meantime, Usher is gearing up for quite a busy year

<img src="http://image.baidu.com/search/http:%5C/%5C/s6.sinaimg.cn%5C/bmiddle%5C/001a6uy3gy6fvuzyhqx35&690" alt="3031 470309 222633 854991 2110.» style=»max-width:400px;float:left;padding:10px 10px 10px 0px;border:0px;»>»As a performer, I love it,» the 29-year-old R&B superstar told The ShowBuzz. «I love both shows (‘Dancing With The Stars’ and ‘American Idol’). They give us a great plane of exposure for up-and-coming talent as well as for artists that are well-established.»

Usher will be on the finale of the ABC ballroom competition to promote his fifth album, «Here I Stand,» out May 27. This is the singer’s first album since his marriage to Tameka Foster and the birth of their first child last year.

«Here you have before you a young man who stepped into true manhood,» Usher told The ShowBuzz in a recent interview. «Not only because of my child but because of the decisions I made in the last two years. Now I’m able to voice how I feel about certain things and allow myself to be vulnerable in exposing certain things through my music.»

One thing’s for certain, Usher is still a hitmaker. In March, the album’s lead single, «Love In This Club» posted the third-largest jump to No. 1 in Billboard Hot 100 history, rocketing from No. 51 the week before.

The song features Young Jeezy, 예천출장안마 and the remix of the song has appearances by Beyonce and Lil Wayne. Will.i.am and Jay-Z are also on the album.

In the future, Usher said he would like to collaborate with fellow multi-hyphenate talent Justin Timberlake.

«I honestly feel like Justin is the equivalent of me white, and I am the equivalent of what he could be black,» Usher laughed. «I know that sounds crazy, but I hear that comparison all the time.

«I think if we came together there would be no color barrier. It would be two guys making an incredible record.»

In the meantime, Usher is gearing up for quite a busy year. In addition to promoting the album, he has numerous business ventures and his foundation to think about. He says he’s able to get everything done by having a great team and employing basic time management techniques.

Out of all the roles he plays, parenting is the most important to Usher.

«I want to be the coolest dad in the world,» he said. «I want to make sure that I’m proud of the father that I am to my child. That would be the most rewarding out of all of them.»
