More men: Most of this is due to the fact that there are just more male physicians. In 1975 women only made up 20% of doctors. Now there are graduating about 50% women from medical schools.

Maybe: A recent article showed that more than 800mg of calcium taken as supplements increased heart disease so take half of your required dose as cal/mag & other half via diet.

Excess, no: It is how your body deals with sugar, not how much you eat that can lead to such problems.

A vaginal yeast infection is by definition a vaginitis. If you are irritated in that area you can also develop a UTI. ...Read more
