(( Russian voters today gave incumbent Boris Yeltsin a victory over communist Gennady Zugyanov in a presidential run-off election.
Officials will tally millions of ballots through the night and into tomorrow, but a CBS news exit poll shows Yeltsin clearly winning over Zugyanov by a comfortable, but not overwhelming margin.
Boris Yeltsin won four more years in power despite worries about his health.
The Russian leader triggered new fears this morning when he voted near a country residence instead of his habitual Moscow polling place...
Yeltsin said he "wanted to avoid a crush of reporters"--aides said the 65 year old was suffering from a cold and fatigue.
His opponent Gennady Zugyanov was a picture of energy and optimism when he voted. He and his comrades again made the communist party a powerful force, but not powerful enough to win. (( SICK YELTSIN IS BETTER THAN IDEOLOGICALLY STRONG ZUGYANOV))
Young voters and people living in the big cities gave Yeltsin a decisive victory over Zugyanov. JONATHAN SANDERS: As Yeltsin won this battle others loom. Now he must make peace with the communists to get a new cabinet approved by parliament...and with Yeltsin's health ever more in doubt there is the question who will succeed him as the next president of Russia.

The government has said mammograms aren't that useful until after age 50.
Although the American Cancer Society recommends women UNDER 50 get screened every year or two.

The study really doesn't provide much information on whether detecting breast cancer early in younger women actually saves lives.
But it does suggest that despite the lack of a clear-cut benefit, if a woman under age 50 and her doctor agree she should have routine mammograms, fewer cancers will be missed if she's screened EVERY year.
