Men who drink several cups of tea a day for decades have a higher risk of prostate cancer, researchers in Scotland say.

Dr. Kashif Shafique of the Institute of Health & Wellbeing at the University of Glasgow and colleagues found those who drank more than seven cups of tea per day for years had a 50 percent higher risk of developing prostate cancer compared with non-tea drinkers or those drinking less than four cups per day. "Most previous research has shown either no relationship with prostate cancer for black tea or some preventive effect of green tea," Shafique, the study leader, said in a statement. "We don't know whether tea itself is a risk factor or if tea drinkers are generally healthier and live to an older age when prostate cancer is more common anyway."

Pests are adapting to genetically modified crops in unexpected ways, U.S. researchers say, showing the importance of closely monitoring biotech crops.

To decrease the need for insecticides that can harm animals other than the target pests, cotton and corn have been genetically engineered to produce toxins derived from the bacterium Bacillus thuringiensis, or Bt, which kill certain insect pests but are harmless to most other creatures including people. However, scientists say, initially rare genetic mutations that confer resistance to Bt toxins are becoming more common as a growing number of pest populations adapt to Bt crops.

U.S. and British researchers say a parasitic mite is responsible for a worldwide spread of a virus believed to cause the death of millions of honeybee colonies.

Research conducted in Hawaii by scientists from the University of Hawaii and Britain's Sheffield University showed how Varroa mites caused the so-called Deformed Wing Virus to increase its frequency among honeybee colonies from 10 percent to 100 percent. Varroa mites live on the surface of honeybees, feeding off their blood and reproducing on their developing brood.

A North Carolina blogger says the state violated his freedom of speech when it restricted what advice he could give on his diet blog.

Steve Cooksey, 50, filed a lawsuit in U.S. District Court in Charlotte this week, claiming the state of North Carolina violated his First Amendment rights to free speech by putting limits on what he can say on his blog, The Charlotte Observer reported. Cooksey started his blog, "Diabetes Warrior," to share his experience and offer advice on weight loss and keeping diabetes under control the way he did, by eating a low-carbohydrate, meat-and-vegetables diet. In January, the North Carolina Board of Dietetics/Nutrition received a complaint that Cooksey was providing "nutrition care services" without a license.

My oldest daughter surprised me by saying how much she enjoys using her slow cooker, which is a kitchen appliance I associate with my mother, who called it her crock pot.

So, it shouldn't have surprised me to come across a cookbook titled "Not Your Mother's Slow Cooker Cookbook," by Beth Hensperger and Julie Kaufmann, while I was browsing for a birthday present for her. There is actually a series of books offering hundreds of recipes for "Not Your Mother's Slow Cooker."

39 months after the Fukushima meltdown...what is TEPCO doing to remedy the situation?

For many Girl Scout troops it is officially cookie season. I feel guilty saying no to the sweet, enthusiastic girls standing outside my grocery store who use their smiles and newly practiced sales pitches to ask how many boxes I'd like to order.

But as a physician who is passionate about health promotion, I politely tell the girls, "No, thanks." I am concerned that every bite and every sale not only delivers an unhealthy snack, but also a dangerous nutrition message. And I'm surprised that more doctors aren't speaking up about this.

Often in the wake of a big massacre such as what happened recently in Aurora, people are scared, sad and looking for answers.

Unfortunately, the media ALWAYS distorts the problem; placing blame on the need for stricter gun laws, or gun bans altogether. The truth is the gun is hardly the problem as everyone knows; guns don't kill people, people kill people. When incidents like this occur, shouldn't people be focusing on what caused this senseless act to happen in the first place, rather than the weapons that were used to carry out these horrific acts? But don't expect the media to let you know that one of the biggest causes is the products of the pharmaceutical companies that just happen to bankroll the corporate gatekeepers.
