Health Alert: Childhood Cancer Survivors' Continued Health Problems

Posted: Updated:
(CBS) - A new study finds childhood cancer survivors face ongoing health problems even decades later. Researchers in Utah found survivors are 52% more likely to be hospitalized at least five years after their original diagnosis then people who don't have cancer. Reasons include blood disorders, more cancer and infections. 
(CBS) - Walking at least 6,000 steps a day may help improve mobility for people with knee osteoarthritis and those at risk of getting it. A new study out of Boston University shows each additional thousand steps lowers the risk of having knee limitations at least 16%. That includes getting up from a chair and climbing stairs.
(CBS) - Eating a high protein diet- especially fish - may lower your risk of stroke. A new study from Chinese researchers finds people with the highest amount of protein in their diets, at least 20 grams a day, are 20 percent less likely to develop a stroke. 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.
