Keri Glassman, a registered dietician and nutritionist, sorts out the options.

Tutor Time: There's no longer a stigma attached to having a tutor; in fact, so many kids -- from grade school through college -- use them to reinforce lessons or just to get an edge, tutoring is now a $4 billion industry.

533 :11x10 - Cancer Studies by Dr. Ezekiel Emmanuel


"Progress Lagging Against Many Cancers, While Overall Cancer Rate In The U.S.A. Is Down 8%, Some Cancers Aren't Dropping At All":

Dr. Ezekiel Emmanuel is interviewed by Maggie Rodriguez. The American Cancer Society previously in 1982 set a goal of cutting the cancer rate by 25% by 2015. It fell 8% so far, which isn't fast enough. Dr. Emmanuel does not believe that this same goal can be accomplished by 2015. There is however, a decline in people that were men and people that were over 65. This is because people don't smoke as much, which risks cancers. There is also a reduction of colorectal cancer and breast cancer. Brain Cancer, Lukemia, Pancreatic, and Uterine cancers have not declined. To decrease the risks, Seek Medical Prevention, Exercise, Eat Fruits & Vegetables and avoid many fats and high fructose corn syrup, avoid UV rays, and don't smoke.

Flu Tips:

1. The flu vaccine can give you the flu - true or false?

2. Antibiotics can fight the flu. Is this true?

3. There are effective treatments for the flu - true or false?

4. The "stomach flu" is a form of influenza - true or false?

5. If you get the flu, you can't get it again in that flu season. True or false?

6. This year's flu shot won't help protect you next year. Is it true?

7. Here's one your grandma may have told you - and she was pretty smart: Exposure to cold weather can cause the flu. What do you say?


Question 1: It's FALSE. The flu shot can't cause the flu. It's made from small parts of the flu virus that are not alive. Some people experience "flu-like" side effects from the shot, like achiness and mild fever, but those should resolve in 24 hours. And remember, the flu shot doesn't protect you from getting a regular cold. Often people will get a cold shortly after having the flu shot, and think the two are related. They aren't.

Question 2: FALSE - another myth. Antibiotics only fight bacteria. For instance, strep throat is a bacteria, but the flu is a virus. Antibiotics can't help with the flu at all. Also, nowadays doctors try to be extra careful not to over-prescribe antibiotics because that creates the "superbugs" we've all been hearing so much about recently.

Question 3: TRUE. But when it comes to treating the flu, timing is everything. If you can get to the doctor quickly - within 48 hours of contracting the flu - there are anti-viral medications that can help. Drugs like Tamiflu and Relenza. They won't cure the flu, but they can cut the amount of time you're sick and make you less contaigious to others.

Question 4: FALSE. This is another myth. The stomach flu is not caused by the influenza virus, but rather by a regular virus that affects the stomach and intestinal tract. It tends to last 24-to-48 hours and has symptoms of diarrhea, vomiting, and feeling generally lousy. But the good news is it goes away on it's own.

Question 5: FALSE. Many people assume that once they've had the flu, they're protected from it for the rest of that same flu season. Not so, because the flu does NOT come from a single virus - there are usually two in circulation, and you could be hit twice. So even if you have the flu, you should get vaccinated: that'll protect you from the type you didn't get.

Question 6: Unfortunately, that's TRUE. The flu is a "smart" virus ... it is constantly changing, with new strains coming out every season. So last winter's flu shot can't protect you from this winter's flu.

Question 7: Sorry granny, it's FALSE. No matter what grandma told you, being cold can't cause a cold or the flu. That being said, we are more likely to contract flu or cold viruses in the winter because we stay indoors, with the windows closed, trapped in with other people who cough and sneeze, and so forth - and that's the perfect environment for viruses to spread.
