    New York HMOs don't always test lungs

ALBANY, N.Y., -- Most New York HMOs don't provide the basic
test for treating chronic respiratory diseases, said a 
report from state regulators. A 2006 state Health Department
report card asked HMOs whether their physicians gave 
breathing capacity tests to patients with chronic 
obstructive pulmonary diseases, or COPD, include bronchitis
and emphysema, the New York Post reported. COPD is common 
among rescue personnel and cleanup workers at the site of 
the World Trade Center, the newspaper said. Forty-three 
percent of commercial HMOs in New York reported giving the 
test and 37 percent of Medicaid HMOs provided it. World 
Trade Center ironworker and advocate John Sferzao told the
newspaper the report shows that the U.S. government needs 
to keep funding clinics that treat Ground Zero workers.

         Junk food linked to cancer

WASHINGTON, -- For women with no incentive to get in shape 
for the coming swimsuit season, here's a different motiva-
tion to cut the junk food. Hamburgers, hot dogs to fried 
chicken -- all your favorite no-effort foods eaten too much
too often -- can raise a woman's risk of developing cancers 
of the womb, pancreas, skin and urinary tract, new studies 
claim. Two studies, one from the National Cancer Institute 
in Bethesda, Md., and the other from Umea University 
Hospital in Sweden, have found these diseases could result 
from the high consumption of fatty and processed foods. The 
U.S. study discovered post-menopausal women on fatty diets 
may have a 15 percent increase in their chances of develop-
ing breast cancer. The Swedish study, which took place over 
the course of 13 years, established women with raised levels
of blood sugar were at substantial extra risk of developing 
a range of other cancers. It's all in what you eat.

      Creatine Parkinson trial begins

NASHVILLE,  -- A large-scale national clinical
trial has started to learn if the nutritional supplement 
creatine can slow the progression of Parkinson's disease.
While creatine is not an approved therapy for Parkinson's or
any other condition, the potential benefit of creatine in 
fighting Parkinson's disease was identified by researchers 
through a new rapid method for screening potential 
compounds. The double-blind, placebo-controlled, Phase III 
study -- one of the largest Parkinson's clinical trials to 
date -- is being conducted at 51 medical centers in the 
United States and Canada, involving 1,720 people with early 
stage Parkinson's. The National Institutes of Health trial 
is designed to allow researchers to work with Parkinson's 
patients over a long period of time, with a goal of finding 
effective and lasting treatments. "This study represents the
next major step in the quest for a medicine that can slow 
down the progression of Parkinson's disease," said Dr. John 
Fang, a Vanderbilt University Medical Center neurologist and
one of the study's investigators. "Earlier studies have 
shown promising results, but without a long-term study, 
we cannot know for sure."
