Health Alert: Childhood Cancer Survivors' Continued Health Problems

(CBS) - A new study finds childhood cancer survivors face ongoing health problems even decades later.

The study's author says if everyone ate that amount of protein there would be almost 1 and half million fewer stroke deaths each year worldwide.
