- Folic acid is a possible cancer risk. I mentioned this a while back and there are renewed concerns since some cancer survivors are being told to increase their folic acid intake (as I was). The advice in this article is that no one should take more than 400 micrograms a day from all sources - so monitor how much you are getting from both supplements and foods that have it as an additive.
- Examining the link between imaging procedures and cancer.
- Connecting the dots between diet and IQ in children.
- Berries could cut the risk of Parkinson's. Good in the fight against cancer, too. It's Valentine's Day - go share some berries with someone you love.
- University of Alberta researcher has discovered the mechanism that stops human genome p53 from suppressing tumours.
- Finally, this is Heart and Stroke month in Canada. On this day when we share our hearts with the people we love, please make a commitment to yourself and those you love to take better care of them.
