WEDNESDAY, Feb. 21, 2018 -- Just a few minutes of exercise a day -- even light workouts -- can reduce an older man's risk of early death, a new British study claims.
Each additional 30 minutes a day of light activity -- such as easy gardening or walking the dog -- was associated with a 17 percent lower risk of death, said Dr. Barbara Jefferis, of University College London, and colleagues.
THURSDAY, Feb. 8, 2018 -- Two cancer drugs can stall the progression of a particularly hard-to-treat form of prostate cancer, a pair of new trials shows.
