Almost one year ago, America mourned as actor and heartthrob Patrick Swayze passed away at the hands of a silent killer. As you probably know, it wasn’t a crazed psychopath that stalked and finally claimed his life, but… it was a stalker all the same. By the time his killer was identified it was too late.

Are you getting enough calcium in your diet? If not, you might want to start – especially considering that new research indicates you can reduce your cancer risk by getting sufficient amounts of this essential nutrient. A recent study published in the Archives of Internal Medicine
indicated that women who had a higher intake of calcium had a lower risk of all types of cancer. The same study indicated that men and women who have high calcium levels have a lower risk of cancer of the digestive system, including colorectal cancer, which is one of the leading causes of death from cancer in the U.S.
