Animal Studies Link Hydrogen Peroxide To Cancer

NEW YORK (NYT Syndicate) - The quest for whiter, brighter teeth may end up
increasing dental patients' cancer risk, new research suggests.

a key ingredient in dental bleaches and some whitening toothpastes, 
may boost pre-cancerous cells in their evolution to full-blown cancer.

Low-Cal Diets May Slow Prostate Cancer

NEW YORK (Reuters Health) -- Results of studies in rats suggest
that calorie-restricted diets may slow the growth of prostate
tumors.  And the amount of fat in the diet does not influence
prostate tumor growth once energy intake has been reduced,
according to the report in the March 17th issue of the Journal of
the National Cancer Institute.

Scientific Report Says Marijuana May Be Medically Useful

harmful drug.
