The Fred Hutchinson Cancer Center in Seattle found no link between the procedure and the risk of getting prostate cancer. But it did find that certain vitamins might offer men some protection from the disease. Men who took daily doses of vitamin C and vitamin E had lower rates of prostate cancer. About 23% lower. And men who took zinc had a 45% drop in risk. The amount taken each day varied from that found in a daily multi-vitamin to large amounts from supplements.
VT=VO

Now when it comes to lowering cholesterol, the latest word is soy. The FDA has just given the okay for soy manufacturers to put on the "Good for You" claim on their labels. Studies show that about 25 grams of soy protein every day can significantly lower your cholesterol, to use the "Good for You" label, a soy product must contain at least one quarter of this amount or 6.25 milligrams.
VT=VO

And finally, lung cancer, the leading cancer killer of both men and women. One reason why, its so hard to detect at an early treatable stage. A routine chest x-ray for example usually wont pick up lung cancer until it's the size of a quarter. But a newer procedure called a spiral CT scan can detect lung cancers smaller than a dime. That's why researchers are pressuring the federal government to put more money into spiral CT scans. This earlier detection can mean an 80% chance of cure, right now the rate is only 15%.
