Summary
In Tonic, Dr. Norman Swan leads a team of reporters who cover all aspects of health, from lifestyle to complementary medicines to the most recent medical discoveries. Topics covered in this episode include: *The Link in Men between Bones and Prostate Gland: Prostate cancer is extremely common-in fact, most men will develop the condition if they live long enough. They won't necessarily die from it, as it's usually slow-growing and often comes to nothing. However, the holy grail for men would be a way of detecting the truly aggressive prostate cancer that requires treatment-and that's exactly what researchers at Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore are exploring. They've found, in following men as they age, that those with particularly strong or dense bones may be at increased risk of prostate cancer. *A Risky Development in Treating Milk Allergy with the Offending Substance-Not to Be Tried at Home
