From Detroit - According to research in Tobacco Control, smokers who know that smoking is bad for their pet's health are more likely to quit. In a study of nearly 3,300 pet owners, 28% reported that knowing smoking is bad for their pet's health would make them try to quit. Second hand smoke has been linked with lymph gland, nasal and lung cancers, as well as several other conditions, in cats and dogs.

From Seattle - According to research in the Archives of Internal Medicine, multivitamins do not appear to affect cancer or heart risk in postmenopausal women. In a study of over 160,000 women, researchers found no significant influence of multivitamin use on the risk for common cancers, cardiovascular disease or overall mortality. Further research is required to see if these results apply to men.

And finally, from Israel - According to research in the Archives of Internal Medicine, continuous statin use can lower mortality in primary and secondary prevention. In a study of over 93,000 patients with diagnosed heart disease and over 136,000 patients without, researchers found that in those who filled their statin prescriptions 90% of the time the risk of death was reduced by 45% in primary prevention and 51% in secondary prevention, compared to those who filled their prescriptions 10% of the time.
