Dying with Dignity in California

By the end of this week California will become the 5th state in the USA to allow a terminally ill person to legal take their own life with the approval of 2 doctors who verify they have 6 months or less to live, are mentally competent and can administer a lethal pharmaceutical themselves. 
Whether u agree morally with this issue or not we think having this option available is important and will eliminate much pain and suffering when appropriate.

Aspirin found to stall prostate cancer progression

Men diagnosed with prostate cancer who took 3 aspirins a week had a 24% lower risk of developing lethal cancer, and a 39% reduced risk of dying from the disease.
"It was after the diagnosis that there appeared to be a benefit" says Christopher Allard a Urology fellow at Harvard Medical School lead author of the study.
A word of caution: be careful of gastro-intestinal problems with aspirin!
