In other health news, a British study released today says a stem cell transplant, plus high-dose chemotherapy, work far better than standard chemo alone against myeloma, a deadly bone cancer. Patients in the eight-year study who got the more intensive treatment generally survived a year longer -- and were five times more likely to have all traces of cancer eliminated from their blood.

But automakers say they are producing vehicles with the future in mind. we've improved the efficiency of our vehicles model by model engine by engine year by year. Honda and Toyota have already put two hybrid vehicles on the road and two US makers Ford and Saturn will both introduce hybrid SUV's in the next model year. --STANDUP-- The EPA estimates in 2002 the US fuel economy hit a 22 year low. The combined average for all classes of vehicles was 20.4 miles to the gallon. While owners of SUV's do want more efficient vehicles they say there's a more important issue advocacy groups should spend their time and money.
