Health Notes

Here are some miscellaneous articles that I thought might be of interest:

Can vitamin D prevent breast cancer and colon cancer? Here’s another article.

What is it with sciatic nerve pain? Here is an article that suggests that sciatica may not always be caused by disc problems, but could be a result of piriformis syndrome.

Can patients with heart failure reduce their risk of hospitalization by taking Lipitor?

Regular exercise may cut the risk of developing dementia or Alzheimer’s disease by 40%.

Stroke survivors may increase their risk of having another stroke if they stop taking aspirin.
