My mother thinks I have a sixth sense when it comes to calling her. It happened most recently when I called home from work one afternoon recently.The news from her end was that my father was in the hospital. The first thought that ran through my mind was that he had another job-related injury as had occurred in the past. His only recent hospitalizations had been for cataracts and cellulitis, and an infection from a cut or insect bite on his foot -- not very serious. Here was a 68-year-old man who didn't look his age, swam, went to the gym and passed a thorough physical examination a few months ago.But what he had this time was very serious indeed.

The vitamin E in an extra handful of nuts or serving of spinach each day may help cut the risk of bladder and prostate cancers, according to two separate studies presented yesterday in Orlando. For the prostate, Finnish men who got more of the vitamin in their diets slashed their risk by as much as 53 percent. For the bladder, people in a Texas-based study had about a 40 percent reduction in risk whether they took vitamin E supplements or ate more foods that are rich in the nutrient. Though the results are intriguing, scientists said additional research is needed to see if the vitamin truly protects against cancer.
