I just got my lab work back for my life insurance. It says slight hemolysis. Cancer does run in my family. Should I get checked out or worry?
Do not worry: Slight hemolysis is due to the technique of the person drawing your blood. It is not because any thing is wrong with you. There is absolutely no reason worry due to this statement. For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, low fat milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco or alcohol in any form. Practice safe sex. ...Read more

Recently, I have read in an article that consuming milk and milk products may cause cancer due the use of artificial cattle feeding. Is that true? Is it possible to avoid milk products completely? Please provide your valuable suggestions!
Not cancer forming: milk products not associated with the development of cancer. Cattle feed which may contain hormone is not in a high enough level to produce side effects which on their own would not be related to cancer, but might induce fibrocystic disease of breast. The volume of milk needed would be excessive. Most cancers defined today if not genetically induced (5%) are viral or carcinogen induced. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
