Though the debate over screening for prostate cancer has been brewing for years, new information further questions the role of the prostate-specific antigen test in preventing death from prostate cancer. Recently, two major articles published in The New England Journal of Medicine seriously question the value of the PSA test. The first study followed 76,693 men from 10 U.S. medical centers. Half the patients received PSA tests annually, and the others did not. After seven ... [full story]

Does your sweet child have a TV in the bedroom? Get it out. Recycle responsibly. Studies show that kids who have TVs in their bedroom score lower on tests, watch nine hours more of TV a week and are more likely to have sleep problems. And don't stop there. In a big healthy lifestyle story that got small notice last December, researchers for the National Institutes of Health working with a nonprofit advocacy group called ... [full story]

Tip of the Week: Want to burn fat and get your heart in shape? Lift weights! Most people think of bodybuilding as an activity that will give you big muscles, maybe some strength, but not much else. Well, I've got news for them! Not only will bodybuilding training build muscle and create strength, but it'll also burn fat and even turn you into a fat-incinerating machine.

One of the most unsettling realities associated with growing older is the loss of mental sharpness. It's bad enough that you have to wear reading glasses, but constantly forgetting where you left them is even worse. With age, everyone has occasional lapses in memory. It's not uncommon to misplace your glasses and car keys, or to forget the names of people you rarely see. Forgetting the names of family members and familiar objects, on the ... [full story]

Everyone has bad breath sometimes, but if the people around you keep getting whiplash whenever you open your mouth, you could have a more serious problem. Halitosis is the official medical term for malodorous breath, defined as any disagreeable odor of expired air. You're allowed to have bad breath if you've been munching on garlic cloves, but if your breath smells like dirty socks most of the time regardless of what you eat, you may ... [full story]

Gathering around the table for regular family meals improves children's eating habits and health, according to the results of a new study published in the latest issue of the Journal of Nutrition Education and Behavior. University of Minnesota researchers reported that youngsters who participated in family meals at least five times a week consumed more fruits, vegetables and fiber than those who dined alone. Previous research shows that kids who enjoy regular family meals experience ... [full story]

The flushed, red faces of some drinkers could be a sign they're at greater risk of throat cancer, say researchers at the National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism. The flushing response, which can be accompanied by nausea and a rapid heartbeat, is primarily caused by an inherited deficiency in an enzyme called ALDH2, which results in difficulties in metabolizing alcohol and an accumulation of toxic acetaldehyde in the body. That toxic buildup may lead ... [full story]

If you're fending off a winter cold or battling a bout with the flu, you may be taking extra vitamin C to hasten your recovery. While boosting your intake of vitamin C may be beneficial, the results of a new study show that taking extra vitamin D may be even better. Vitamin D, known as the sunshine vitamin, is produced in the skin in the presence of ultraviolet light from the sun. During the darker ... [full story]

In a recent speech nominating former New York City Health Commissioner Margaret Hamburg as director of the Food and Drug Administration, President Barack Obama placed food safety center stage as he seeks to improve the under-funded, understaffed FDA. Obama said he would create a Food Safety Working Group to review the outdated (circa 1906, during the Theodore Roosevelt administration) laws that establish food safety guidelines. But even with all this added attention, can we ever ... [full story]

Are you hooked on your favorite sport? Do you spend all your workout time either running, biking or swimming, believing that single-minded dedication is going to make you stronger and faster, better and better? Sorry, dear reader. That's not how it works. It's time to learn about the benefits of cross-training, a fancy name for simply including a mix of sports in your exercise regime. If you're a runner, for example, regular Pilates classes would ... [full story]

Tip of the Week: Read the label before buying that food or beverage! So many of us are accustomed to walking into the grocery store and simply pulling packages off the shelves and throwing them in our baskets without checking anything more than the price. That needs to change. While it's difficult to completely avoid artificial ingredients, we can all make sound nutritional choices by paying attention to what is in the processed foods we ...

In industrialized countries, 1 percent to 3 percent of children ages 6 to 12 are afflicted with head lice. For parents, teachers and, well, just about anybody who has contact with the affected kids (not to mention the kids themselves), it's critical to quickly and accurately identify infections. The two primary methods are visual inspections and wet combing, but neither method has ever been scientifically evaluated for its efficacy, and health professionals say children are ... [full story]

It's time to end the diet debate. Stop the nagging comparisons of Atkins vs. South Beach, fat vs. calories, and protein vs. carbohydrates. In a very carefully designed study published in The New England Journal of Medicine, researchers compared the weight loss of obese individuals on four different diets, and the results are quite clear. No matter the diet used, success depends on two important factors: consuming fewer calories and having a strong support network ... [full story]
