Washington: The human papilloma virus (HPV) vaccines protect against cervical cancer in young women, finds a study.

A committee of British lawmakers is urging the government to loosen restrictions on e-cigarettes as a way of cutting the smoking rate. Parliament's Science and technology Committee said Friday that e-cigarettes, or vapes, should be available on prescription and should not automatically be banned in public places.

The researchers tested the blood glucose levels and muscle glycogen levels...
