The article presents several studies related to health and medicine. The journal "Cancer Research" revealed that large doses of Vitamin C will reduce the therapeutic effects of chemotherapy drugs. The journal "Human Reproduction" presented that depression can result to pre-term delivery. The U.S. Center for Studying Health System Change showed that only 41% of adults are aware on health management.
