Be Skeptical Of PSA Tests

Prostate cancer kills many more men than it should.

To help control your cholesterol, try adding legumes—or beans—like chickpeas, pinto, kidney, lima, garbanzo, lentil and Northern beans.

In one study of 300 men and women, patients who ate a legume-rich diet dropped, on average, 14 […]
