Secret Service agents took added precautions after discovering small, lead

In tonight's Health Check report, it could be a major breakthrough in the
treatment of genital herpes.
Researchers in Cincinnati say they've developed a cream that was
80-percent effective in preventing the virus.
It's made from cholic acid-- which plays a role in human digestion.
Scientists hope this discovery will lead to other creams and gels that can
protect against most sexually transmitted diseases.

Calcium is essential for girls during adolescence and the teenage
But surveys show many girls are opting for beverages that don't
contain calcium like milk.
Why is calcium so important to girls and why aren't they drinking the milk
they need to get the calcium?. Dr. Emily Senay takes a look.

Whatever happened to every body needs milk?
If you look around the
food court these days ...it isn't milk that teenage girls are drinking.
And for young women especially it should be at least three times a day
according to national dietary recommendations.
Milk is a major source of
calcium and calcium is essential to their diets now - and later in life.
girls who forgo calcium rich foods face potentially serious side effects.
DR. BESS DAWSON HUGHES/TUFTS UNIVERSITY: THE IMMEDIATE CONSEQUENCES ARE THAT
GIRLS ARE GOING TO HAVE
MORE SHIN SPINTS AND BROKEN BONES WHEN THEY'RE DOING SPORTS...THE LONG RANGE
CONSEQUENCE IS OSTEOPEROSIS.
According to a United States Department of Agriculture survey...
teenage girls stop drinking milk at a time when they should be increasing
their intake to prevent osteoporosis later in life.
Why do girls stop drinking milk? researchers say girls choose diet soda
over milk because they are calorie conscious...but there are other reasons.
I DON'T LIKE THE TASTE, I DON'T LIKE THE SMELL...IT DOESN'T FIT INTO MY
SCHEDULE....I LIKE OTHER DRINKS."
Do young women realize that during their teens...there is a once in a
lifetime window of opportunity to store calcium ?
"NOT REALLY"..."NO"..."I KNOW IT'S GOOD FOR GROWING..."
Teenage girls need 12 to 15 hundred milligrams of calcium daily. an eight
ounce glass of skim milk has no fat yet it contains over 300 milligrams of
calcium...vitamin d and other essential nutrients...and only 80 calories.
But according to the National Institute of Health...only 8 out 0f ten
girls are getting the recommended amount of calcium in their diets.
WE'RE IN A TEEN MILK DROUGHT...MUCH LIKE A PLANT NEEDS WATER...GIRLS NEED MILK.
Calcium supplements and some fruits and vegetables are ways girls can
get the calcium they need.
Girls who are preoccupied with their looks now...may want to consider the
deforming and debilitating effects of osteoperosis later in life.
