Health Alert: High stress job dangers

Posted: Updated:

(CBS) - A certain kind of fat in the blood may increase the risk of Alzheimer's. Researchers at the Mayo Clinic linked the fatty compound called ceramide to the disease. They found seniors with the highest levels in their blood were 10 times more likely to develop Alzheimer's. Doctors say larger studies will determine if ceramide can one day help diagnose the disease.

(CBS) - A new study in the New England Journal of Medicine questions whether surgery is the right treatment for some prostate cancer patients. Some doctors prefer surgery after diagnosis while others advise just watching and waiting to see if the cancer progresses. Researchers followed more than 7-hundred prostate cancer patients and found those who had surgery did not live longer than those who did not. Many doctors believe watching and waiting is the better option because surgery can come with side effects.
