(pam)(pam) if you take vitamin- d or omega- three supplements to prevent heart attacks or cancer... it may not help. according to a new study ... researchers followed a group of people who were randomly assigned a daily dose of each, for five- years. they found there was no difference between those taking the supplements... and those taking a placebo. researchers say, there is no reason to stop taking the vitamins-- fish oil and vitamin-d are not harmful and may have other benefits. just talk to your doctor before you start.

and stroke ...whereas levels above 160 are considered very high and require specialized treatment.though feedback from the medical community about the new recommendations has been largely positive, there are criticisms being made. coronary artery calcium scores are recommended to help determine the necessity of cholesterol-lowering treatments for patients when their need is unclear.the score shows plaque buildup in arteries -- but it requires a c-t scan, which can be costly. for today's health minute, i'm jeremy roth.
