Breast cancer is the most common cancer among women in Texas. By the end of this year, it's estimated that more than 15,000 women will be diagnosed with the disease. A new study in the Journal of the American Medical Association shows that women who opt to have their breasts remove to prevent cancer are doing the right thing. Former breast cancer patient Elise Bair of Flower Mound did just that and is happy she did. Dr. Ed Clifford, breast surgeon on the Baylor Grapevine medical staff, agrees that she made the right choice.

Sherry Gordon, MD, urologist on the medical staff at Baylor Regional Medical Center at Grapevine discusses a potential link between drinking excessive amounts of ice tea and the development of kidney stones. Oxalate, a chemical found in teas, can lead to kidney stones in about 10 percent of people. Green and chamomile teas have lower amounts of oxalate than black teas. Although all teas, iced or hot, have oxalate, people tend to drink higher amounts of tea when it's on ice. Chocolate and spinach also have high levels of oxalate.
