A link between higher speed limits and fatality rates

Oklahoma motorists are permitted to drive at 75 mph on some stretches of road, and a bill signed into law by Gov. Fallin in May 2016 allows the state's Department of Transportation to modify speed limits as it sees fit. While laws such as these may be welcome news to long-distance truck drivers and harried commuters, they are unlikely to please road safety groups like the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety. The nonprofit advocacy group analyzed the impact that rising speed limits have had on traffic accident fatalities, and it concluded that road deaths increase by about 4 percent every time speed limits are increased by 5 mph.

Many men do not benefit from early prostate cancer surgery

A study of prostate cancer patients has shown that for most men with early-stage, non-aggressive prostate cancer are unlikely to benefit from surgery. In some cases, Oklahoma men with this type of prostate cancer have actually experienced worsened medical conditions following the surgery due to side effects like erectile dysfunction and urinary incontinence.

Three cars get top rating from IIHS

The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety has added three vehicles to its list of the highest rated in terms of crash safety. Oklahoma drivers who are shopping for full-size cars may therefore want to consider the Toyota Avalon, Mercedes-Benz E-Class or the Lincoln Continental. Each of these cars received Top Safety Pick Plus designations from the IIHS.

Ovarian cancer myths

Oklahoma women may have heard that talc products can cause ovarian cancer, but there is no scientific consensus that this is the case. Furthermore, a family history of ovarian cancer does not mean that a person will get cancer. On the other hand, people should not think that if they do not have this family history that they are safe from ovarian cancer.
