Calcium Supplements Tied to Kidney Stone Risk in Study

But don't stop on your own if doctor recommended them, experts say

Health Tip of the Day

A Cheesy Grin

If your children don't brush their teeth after every meal, feed them some cheese. Aged cheeses such as Swiss, mozzarella and cheddar neutralize the acids that lead to development of cavities. These cheeses also contain calcium and phosphorous, which help make teeth stronger.

Healthy Living

There's a lot of news about cholesterol these days, and with good reason. High cholesterol contributes to heart disease, which kills more Americans than all cancers combined. A regular exercise routine and good eating habits — along with medication if your doctor recommends it — can keep cholesterol levels under control and lower your risk of heart disease.

Health Centers

Learn how to become a proactive patient. Understand your treatment choices. Get the latest news on advances in cancer. If you or a loved one is facing cancer, you’ll want to explore the Cancer Knowledgebase, with separate sections on more than 60 types of the disease.
