Body Size May Influence Lifespan in Women, Not Men

By Steven Reinberg HealthDay Reporter TUESDAY, Jan. 22, 2019 (HealthDay News) -- Here's a new study finding that's bound to make tall, thin women happy: Their body size and their gender make it more likely they will reach the milestone age of 90 than either men or shorter, heavier women.

By Robert Preidt HealthDay Reporter MONDAY, Feb. 11, 2019 (HealthDay News) -- Widespread mammography screening and big advances in breast cancer treatment have saved hundreds of thousands of American women's lives since 1989, a new study estimates.

They then extrapolated those results out to 2018, and calculated the number of breast cancer deaths...

The report from the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention specifically singled out e-cigarette giant Juul as a contributing factor to the escalating rates. "The bottom line is, we have considerably troubling news on the tobacco control front when it comes to...

A recent study concludes that a pathway involved in both conditions could be positively influenced by a commercially available chemical. A new study finds an innovative approach to treating alcohol use disorder. A doctor diagnoses alcohol use disorder (AUD) when an individual's use of alcohol becomes compulsive. Someone with AUD feels intense cravings for alcohol and, when none has been consumed, experiences symptoms of withdrawal. According to the National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism, there are around 16 million people in the United States with AUD. Mood disorders,...
