By Tara Parker-Pope

Sometimes radioactive treatments for cancer damage healthy body parts. This week, a New York Times article revealed a series of mistakes involving radioactive seed implants used to treat men with prostate cancer.

Federal investigators are looking into flawed implants at the Philadelphia Veterans Affairs hospital and other V.A. hospitals, including hospitals in Jackson, Miss., and Cincinnati.
