(Best Syndication News) Mary Tyler Moore and Dick Van Dyke were on the Rachael Ray show discussing their antics on The Dick Van Dyke Show. Van Dyke was reminiscing about the first time they met when the 74-year old Moore made a surprise entrance.

They recreated the 1970s set and reminisced. Van Dyke said that he might have been a little in-love with Moore back when they were on the show; but in those days they didn’t act on their mutual attraction.

The star of “Ordinary People” was rumored to have a benign tumor called meningioma. Back in July of 2007, the Globe broke the story. Moore’s representative now tells People Magazine that the star will undergo surgery to remove the growth. They are calling the procedure “fairly routine.”

Men who ate carotenoid lycopene, which is found in tomatoes, could reduce their risk of some of the more deadly forms of prostate cancer. “Five studies support a 30% to 40% reduction in risk associated with high tomato or lycopene consumption”, the NIH concluded.

Zytiga gained FDA approval ahead of the June 20, 2011 regulatory goal date. The clinical study of 1,195 patients that had late-stage castration-resistant prostate cancer and also had previously received treatment with docetaxel chemotherapy were studied with either Zytiga one per day along with prednisone twice each day or the other group was given a placebo (sugar pill) two times per day along with the prednisone treatment.
