Cancer Screening: Does It Really Save Lives?...
NaturalNews) Anne is a good patient. She sees her doctor for regular checkups, has yearly mammograms, Pap tests, and colon cancer screenings, and she even paid for a full-body CT scan out of her own pocket. She figures she's doing everything she can to make sure she doesn't get cancer. Truth is, Anne is doing nothing to prevent cancer. Although cancer screening is billed as a preventive service that saves lives, the best it can do is detect disease in its early stages, when it is supposedly easier to treat. Nevertheless, every year millions of Americans dutifully line up for their screenings, completely unaware that they may be doing more harm than good.

He/she should be, according to the latest large study, published in Pediatrics, on vitamin D levels in children, which found that seven out of ten kids in the U.S. have dangerously low levels, increasing their risks of bone and heart disease, and other health problems.
Researchers looked at blood levels of vitamin D in more than 6,000 U.S. children, ages one to 21, collected from 2001-2004. They defined vitamin D deficiency as less than 15 ng/mL of blood, and vitamin D insufficiency as 15 to 29 ng/mL. Both deficiency and insufficiency were considered low. Nine percent of children were found to be deficient, and another 61% was found to have insufficient levels.

Statins Cause Serious Structural Muscle Damage...
(NaturalNews) If there is a super star in Big Pharma's list of money making drugs, it may well be the group of medications known as statins. The New York Times reported last year that statins are, in fact, the biggest selling drugs in the world. Their names, like Lipitor and Crestor, are familiar from countless television and magazine ads and almost everyone knows someone taking a statin. Promoted widely as safe, they are actually known to cause a litany of potential side effects. For example, the National Institutes of Health (NIH) web site notes that about one in 1,000 of those taking statins suffer from muscle pain. Usually, these aches go away. But not always. And now new research shows that in some people statins cause serious structural damage to muscles.
