The United Nations Program on HIV/AIDS (UNAIDS) is reporting world AIDS deaths and new HIV infections have each dropped 21 percent since the peak of the AIDS pandemic, the most optimistic report the group has ever issued.
Michel Sidibe, executive director of UNAIDS program, says in a news release, “We have seen a massive scale-up in access to HIV treatment, which has had a dramatic effect on the lives of people everywhere.”
People who take vitamins may be perceived as healthier, but new research finds those people often engage in decidedly unhealthy habits — possibly thinking the vitamins will make up for it.
A study in Taiwan discovered smokers who take vitamins smoked twice as much on average, and supplement-takers also made poorer food choices. Worse yet, the vitamin group was more likely to engage in risky behavior such as casual sex and binge drinking.
New movies usually open on Fridays, but since the Thanksgiving holiday means many people will have had enough of socializing with their relatives long before then, you’ll be able to sneak out as early as Wednesday to check out this week’s new offerings.
Painful ear infections, common among children, are frustratingly heartbreaking for parents. But what if you could stave them off simply by having your kids chew gum?
Scandinavian researchers have found “fair evidence” to support the conclusion that children who chew gum containing the natural sweetener xylitol may have a lower risk of developing middle ear infections. In fact, regular consumption of xylitol in gum, lozenges or syrup was associated with a 25 percent reduced risk for such infections.
A new study finds that while elevated testosterone may typically be associated with a higher propensity for risk-taking, such behavior apparently doesn’t carry over into the bedroom. Research conducted on a group of college freshman found those with higher testosterone levels to be more accepting toward condoms and protected sex.
While many college grads are only too happy to fly their parents’ nest and get a place of their own, the dip in the economy has meant some can’t — or won’t — until they feel more financially able to do so comfortably. What does this mean for the economy? Unfortunately, nothing good.
A new study finds those who’ve lost weight and kept it off tend to eat more often than heavier people — yet still took in fewer daily calories.
Lead researcher Jessica Bachman, assistant professor in the Department of Nutrition and Dietetics at Marywood University in Scranton, PA, was part of a group that profiled 250 people who’d lost significant amounts of weight. The key was to learn how they maintain their weight loss in order to help others lose weight and keep it off.
Whether your thing is animated penguins who sing and dance or gothic love stories involving vampires and werewolves, both of the new movies in wide release this weekend have been much hyped and hotly anticipated.
Researchers discovered that countries with the highest numbers of women using oral contraceptives also have the highest rates of death from prostate cancer. What does this mean? They think estrogen from the urine of women who take birth control pills could be to blame.
A new study of 8,000 kids published in the Journal of Epidemiology and Community Health finds those who had high IQs were more likely to use certain illicit drugs as they aged. Smarter girls in particular may tend to experiment with marijuana, cocaine, and other illicit drugs later on.
A Department of Transportation rule implemented in April 2010 prohibits airlines from keeping passengers sitting on a tarmac for more than three hours — a rule it says an American Airlines affiliate has since violated so frequently that it’s now been slapped with a $900,000 fine, the first such fine handed down since the edict took effect.
