Health Alert: DNA changes linked to prostate cancer

Posted: Updated:

(CBS) - A new study shows certain DNA changes contribute to the development of prostate cancer. Researchers found that patients with particular kinds of genetic changes have a high likelihood of dying from the disease. The findings may offer doctors insight into which patients should be treated aggressively.

(CBS) - New research in the Journal Pediatrics finds it is a common practice for parents to try to restrict the food intake of their overweight children or pressure them to eat if they were not overweight. But the study's authors say instead of doing those things parents should try behaviors that are known to protect against unhealthy weight gain -- for example eating nutritious meals together as a family, and setting a good example with your own healthy food choices.

(CBS) - People who want to get into shape often wonder whether they should start with dieting or with exercise. Now researchers from Stanford say for the best results change both habits at the same time. The study also found that focusing on diet first -- which many weight-loss programs encourage -- may not be beneficial. If you have to start with one -- you're likely better off with physical activity first.
