Prostate Cancer and Weight

Men who are treated for prostate cancer and experience remission or “cure” have a higher risk of recurrence, when they carry excess weight. Those who lost weight or maintained an appropriate weight to height ratio had lower risks or recurrence.

Another Reason to Exercise

A recent study suggests that hospital patients who “get moving’ meaning they get out of bed, walk around, actually shorten their hospital stays. Patients who walked the same day they were hospitalized or got up to move after surgery, seemed to have even shorter stays, compared to patients who remained confined to the bed or chair with llittle ambulation.

How do I know if the milk I’m drinking is hormone free?

There is no “uniform rule’ for this type of labeling. Your best bet is to buy organic milk or to look on labels where you may see, “This milk is from cows not treated with rBGH’ or “This milk is rGBH free” or “This milk contains no artificial hormones.”
