Busting the myths around sex virus HPV

High levels of shame and ignorance are associated with HPV, the sexually-transmitted virus which affects 80% of people, a survey has discovered. The government is rolling out HPV testing as part of routine screenings for cervical cancer. Nearly half of the women surveyed believed their partner must have cheated if they had HPV, but the virus can remain dormant for years. Campaigners fear women may not attend screenings because of the stigma. The survey of 2,000 women was done by Jo's Cervical Cancer Trust last month. It found that half of the women were embarrassed and "put off sex" as...

An outbreak of antibiotic-resistant Campylobacter infections in 2017 and 2018 that sickened 118 people in 18 states was traced to pet store puppies, according to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

Of those who became ill,...

Children with kidney failure due to certain diseases may regain kidney function and therefore no longer need dialysis, and kidney transplantation might be postponed. The findings, which appear in an upcoming issue of the Clinical Journal of the American Society of Nephrology (CJASN), may help clinicians better allocate scarce donor kidneys to pediatric patients. Although is often irreversible, a small percentage of patients who need dialysis to stay alive regain .

Mediterranean diet could lower stroke risk, especially for women: Study

Can following a Mediterranean diet lower the risk of stroke? A new study says possibly -- and especially for women. Mediterranean diets, which encourage eating fruits, vegetables, nuts, fish, and unsaturated fats, have been associated with lower rates of heart disease and strokes. Research on the subject has been of variable quality, failing to account for people's cardiovascular risks or how strictly they followed their diets. A team of U.K. researchers hoped to see if the benefits of the diet held up after looking at gender and risk factors. "Our findings provide clinicians and the public with information regarding the...

Cornell review finds academic misconduct by food researcher

Cornell says a prominent professor of food research has resigned after an investigation found he committed academic misconduct. The school says Brian Wansink will retire at the end of the school year next June and that he has been removed from his teaching positions. Thursday's announcement comes a day after a medical journal retracted six of Wansink's papers. The JAMA network of journals retracted the papers Wednesday, saying the research couldn't be verified. In response, Wansink said he was proud of the papers and was confident they'll be replicated by other groups. Several of his other papers had been retracted...
