How to protect yourself in dangerous, freezing weather

The freezing weather slamming three-quarters of the country is posing serious health risks. The frigid temperatures can lead to hypothermia, compromise lung function, and trigger confusion or other neurological effects.The elderly and infants are more vulnerable to hypothermia, according to CBS News' Dr. Tara Narula. She warned it's important to be aware of the symptoms "because they say the cold makes you dumb." "It really can affect your mental thinking, it can make you sluggish, it can affect your judgment, your coordination. So you may not realize that you're that cold," Narula said Tuesday on "CBS This Morning." You're at...

'Social' Hormone-Based Therapy May Aid in Autism

By Dennis Thompson HealthDay Reporter WEDNESDAY, May 1, 2019 (HealthDay News) -- Hormone-based treatment might improve social function in people with autism, a pair of new clinical trials suggests. Both focused on vasopressin, a hormone that has been implicated in the brain's ability to manage social behavior. In the first trial, vasopressin given as a nasal spray helped improve social responsiveness in kids with autism, said lead researcher Karen Parker. She is director of Stanford University's Social Neurosciences Research Program. "The parents saw improvement, the clinicians saw improvement, and the children's performance on lab tests also improved with vasopressin compared...

The Latest on efforts to override Democratic Gov. Laura Kelly's veto of an abortion bill (all times local): 1:45 p.m. Republicans in the Kansas Legislature have narrowly failed to override Democratic Gov.

Kelly said the bill is an unwarranted intrusion between patients and their...

The Latest on a court fight over former President Barack Obama's health care law (all times local): 3:30 p.m. Republican-led states challenging former President Barack Obama's health care law have asked a federal appeals court to uphold a judge's ruling that the law is unconstitutional.

Court rules in favor of woman seeking opioid meds in jail

A federal appeals court has affirmed a judge's order requiring a jail to provide medication to a woman to keep her opioid addiction in remission. The Aroostook County Jail in northern Maine appealed to the 1st U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals after a Portland-based U.S. district judge granted the preliminary injunction, which requires the jail to provide prescribed medication to Brenda Smith. The appeals court released a brief, unsigned ruling Tuesday saying it found "no abuse of discretion by the district court" in ruling in Smith's favor. Smith was convicted of theft in 2017. She was scheduled to report for...

Arizona licenses center where incapacitated woman was raped

An embattled Phoenix long-term care facility where an incapacitated woman was raped and later gave birth has received an Arizona license to operate, the latest step in an effort to overhaul its image and operations by relinquishing oversight to the state. The Arizona Department of Health Services last week approved the license for Hacienda HealthCare that is valid for 11 months. Hacienda is the first intermediate care facility in Arizona to be licensed since the 1990s, when lawmakers previously approved an exemption for them. Until recently, Hacienda was the only privately run intermediate care facility in Arizona, providing long-term care...
