((
The fight against AIDS is focusing on another way to treat patients.
British scientists say a drug combination of either A-Z-T and D-D-I or D-D-C works better than A-Z-T alone.
They found that the death rate among patients taking the A-Z-T-D-D-I combo was 33-percent lower than those taking only A-Z-T.
And the death rate was 21-percent lower for those taking the A-Z-T-D-D-C mixture.
Another team of British doctors is warning against relying on fiber pills and cereals with added fiber.
The researchers say everyone should just eat enough fruits and vegetables....because studies have yet to link fiber alone to lower rates of heart disease and cancer. Instead, research has shown that a high-fiber diet can reduce one's risk of disease....suggesting the benefit could come from a number of factors.
It will soon be easier to prevent serious cases of hemo-chromatosis-- or iron overload, a common hereditary disorder.
Researchers say they've found the gene responsible for the disease, and hope it will lead to earlier diagnosis.))

Still, it's the most common malignancy found in males from teenagers to age 35.

And that means regular self-exams of the testicles just like women do breast self exams to detect breast cancer.
