A former CNN talk show host Larry King has advised the young and old to go for routine chest examination to ensure early detection of respiratory challenge especially lung cancer.
 
King gave the advise on Thursday in a statement issued to CNN by a rep on a recent cancer diagnosis which showed he had a stage 1 Adenocarcinoma, the most common type of lung cancer.
 
“He immediately underwent a successful surgery to remove the upper lobe and lymph node,” the rep added.

“Larry returned to work two weeks later, having just celebrated his 60th year in broadcasting. He looks forward to working for another 60 years and thanks everyone for their well wishes!”
 
The 83-year-old King talked to “Extra” on Wednesday about discovering over the summer he had lung cancer.
 
“Part of the check-up is a chest X-ray and that is the protocol,” King said. “I do it every year, it’s always normal. Then the doctor says, ‘I see a little spot here. Let’s do a CAT scan.'”
 
The CAT scan led to a PET scan, he said, and doctors found a spot they wanted to remove. The legendary TV host underwent surgery on July 17 at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles.

“They took it out,” he said. “It was malignant.”
 
The former CNN talk show host said he had no idea prior to his annual exam that there were any issues.
 
“If I had not had the chest X-ray, it would have progressed,” he said.
 
King has been open about his health issues in the past, including a 1987 heart attack and bypass surgery months later. He also has type 2 diabetes. In 1999, King was diagnosed with and successfully treated for prostate cancer.
 
A former smoker who quit following his heart attack, King said he’s sharing his lung cancer diagnosis to help others.

“Get a chest X-ray,” he said. “It takes two seconds.”

The war rages on about the safety of cell phones.  One side argues there’s either nothing to fear, while the other warns that your phone is causes grave harm when it comes into close contact with your body. Citing the views of other experts Dr Joseph Mercola tries to show where the real truth lies.

The year 2014 marked the first time in history that there were officially more mobile devices than people in the world – approximately 7.2 billion.

Although significantly lower, the number of cell phone users is forecast to reach 4.77 billion by the year 2017.
