Why take nutritional supplements? Besides getting a daily dose of vitamins and minerals, men who consume nutritional supplements containing omega-3 fatty acids may be contributing to better prostate health.

Anyway, that was the conclusion of a recent study conducted at the University of California, Los Angeles. Scientists found that when fish oil supplements are combined with a low-fat diet, the result appears to be improvements in prostate cellular health.

Prostate problems are widespread among American men, so its little wonder that so much attention is being paid to the effects that multivitamins and herbal supplements may have on the well-being of this little gland.

It’s a global first for a virulent virus. And if the dangerous, transmissible mutation were unleashed – by accident or through malice – it could have pandemic consequences.

At a special meeting in Geneva last week, the World Health Organization recommended that the sensitive research be published, igniting a tussle within the ranks of global leaders on science, health and security: At what point does potentially life-saving data become reckless bait for would-be bioterrorists?
