15 Apr 2014 at 3:07pm
NEW YORK (AP) ? A small study of casual marijuana smokers has turned up evidence of changes in the brain, a possible sign of trouble ahead, researchers say.

Malaysia reports first Asian death from MERS virus
16 Apr 2014 at 7:01am

14 Apr 2014 at 11:45am

Rape-prevention program cuts sexual assaults in Kenya
16 Apr 2014 at 8:34am
By Ronnie Cohen NEW YORK (Reuters Health) - Self-defense and empowerment classes designed to arm girls with tools to prevent rape reduced sexual assaults among Kenyan students, a new study shows. In addition, half of the nearly 2,000 girls enrolled in the intervention classes reported using skills learned in the program to stop a total of 817 sexual assaults, according to results published in Pediatrics. "This is the first time anyone's proven you can prevent rape with a simple, low-cost intervention," Dr. Jake Sinclair told Reuters Health. "It's like a vaccine." Sinclair, a pediatrician at John Muir Medical Center in Walnut Creek, California, and his wife, Lee Paiva, of No Means No Worldwide, created the series of classes after witnessing what they described as an epidemic of rape in Kenya.

For kids, moving can be mentally tough
16 Apr 2014 at 8:33am
By Allison Bond NEW YORK (Reuters Health) - Moving to a new area may be hard on the mental health of children, especially adolescents, according to a new U.S. study. Based on analysis of medical records for more than a half million children, researchers found the chances a child will require mental health care rise by as much as 20 percent after a move. "Knowing how moves affect psychological health issues in children is important so families and healthcare providers can anticipate those challenges and prepare accordingly," said Jeffrey Millegan, lead author of the study and a psychiatrist at Naval Medical Center in San Diego, California. Although military families have a long tradition of moving frequently, "geographic moves are an increasingly common part of the American experience in general as our economy becomes more dynamic," Millegan told Reuters Health in an email.

National event urges Americans to plan for the end
16 Apr 2014 at 6:42am
National Health Care Decisions Day, marked on this date for the seventh year, is one in which patients and health providers are encouraged to think about their own end-of-life preferences. The man behind it, health care attorney Nathan Kottkamp, says such considerations have never been more critical. "It's a broken record issue," said Kottkamp, a member of multiple hospital ethics committees. "Ninety percent of ethics consults I have been involved in deal with end-of-life decisions without advance directives." Those conflicts led to his founding of National Health Care Decisions Day, intended to educate the public about advance care planning.

Abbott beats profit forecast, but sales lag
16 Apr 2014 at 6:24am
(Reuters) - Abbott Laboratories Inc reported better-than-expected quarterly earnings, but sales came in slightly below Wall Street expectations. The company on Wednesday said it earned $375 million, or 24 cents per share in the first quarter. That compared with $544 million, or 34 cents per share, in the year-ago quarter, when Abbott took charges for licensing and acquisitions. Excluding special charges, Abbott earned 41 cents per share. Analysts, on average, were expecting 36 cents per share, according to Thomson Reuters I/B/E/S. ...


Teenager uses Facebook to save Romania's stray dogs
16 Apr 2014 at 4:32am

By Radu Marinas and Bogdan Cristel BUCHAREST (Reuters) - When French film actress Brigitte Bardot began a campaign to spare the thousands of stray dogs in Romania's capital from being put down, she did it with a $150,000 donation scheme. A similar campaign is being waged by Ana-Maria Ciulcu, a 13-year-old schoolgirl with braces on her teeth who uses Facebook to appeal to dog lovers all over Europe - and to make sure the dogs go to the right homes. Ciulcu was a baby when Bardot started her sterilization campaign in 2001. But Bucharest's state-funded wards now hold 2,800 dogs, and 2,000 dogs have been euthanized in the past two months, according to Romania's Authority for Animal Surveillance and Protection.


Ex Co-op bank chairman Paul Flowers charged with drug possession
16 Apr 2014 at 3:16am
Former Co-op Bank chairman Paul Flowers was charged on Wednesday with possessing illegal drugs, with the former Methodist minister to appear before magistrates next month, police said. West Yorkshire police said Flowers, 63, of Bradford in northern England, was charged with three offences of possessing drugs and was bailed to appear in court on May 7. "I have concluded that there is sufficient evidence and it is in the public interest to charge Paul Flowers with possession of Class A and Class C drugs relating to an incident on 9 November 2013," Clare Stevens, from the Crown Prosecution Service, said in a statement. Flowers was arrested last November after an investigation triggered by allegations in a newspaper.


Casual pot use causes brain abnormalities in the young: study
15 Apr 2014 at 11:10pm

Young, casual marijuana smokers experience potentially harmful changes to their brains, with the drug altering regions of the mind related to motivation and emotion, researchers found. The study to be published on Wednesday in the Journal of Neuroscience differs from many other pot-related research projects that are focused on chronic, heavy users of cannabis. The collaborative effort between Northwestern University's medical school, Massachusetts General Hospital and Harvard Medical School showed a direct correlation between the number of times users smoked and abnormalities in the brain. "What we're seeing is changes in people who are 18 to 25 in core brain regions that you never, ever want to fool around with," said co-senior study author Dr. Hans Beiter, professor of psychiatry and behavioral sciences at Northwestern University.



Beijing says one third of its pollution comes from outside the city
15 Apr 2014 at 9:12pm

About a third of the air pollution in China's smog-hit capital comes from outside the city, official media reported on Wednesday, citing a pollution watchdog. Chen Tian, chief of the Beijing Environmental Protection Bureau, said that about 28-36 percent of hazardous airborne particles known as PM2.5 came from surrounding provinces like Hebei, home to seven of China's 10 most polluted cities in 2013, according to official data. The central government has identified the heavily industrialised Beijing-Hebei-Tianjin region as one of the main fronts in its war against pollution, and it is under pressure to cut coal consumption and industrial capacity. Decades of unrestrained growth have hit China's environment hard and Beijing's often choking air has become a symbol of the pollution crisis.



Bill signed allowing surprise inspections of Arizona abortion clinics
15 Apr 2014 at 7:07pm

By David Schwartz PHOENIX (Reuters) - Arizona Governor Jan Brewer on Tuesday signed into a law a bill allowing state health authorities to conduct surprise inspections of abortion clinics without first obtaining a warrant, handing another victory to abortion foes. The Republican-backed bill, which gained final legislative approval from the state Senate last week, removes a provision from state law requiring a judge to approve any spot inspections conducted at the nine clinics in Arizona licensed to perform abortions. No other medical facilities in the state require such a warrant for unannounced inspections. "This legislation will ensure that the Arizona Department of Health Services has the authority to appropriately protect the health and safety of all patients," gubernatorial spokesman Andrew Wilder said in announcing that Brewer, a Republican, had signed the measure.

U.S. court reverses Massachusetts ban on Zogenix pain drug
15 Apr 2014 at 4:06pm
A U.S. District Court judge on Tuesday stopped Massachusetts from implementing a ban on the sale of Zogenix Inc's prescription painkiller Zohydro, saying federal law superseded the state's action. Massachusetts Governor Deval Patrick had announced a ban on the drug, formally declaring a public health emergency on March 27 stemming from abuse of opioids in the New England state. The U.S. District Court for Massachusetts granted a preliminary injunction against the ban, saying that by imposing its own conclusion about the safety and efficacy of Zohydro, the state was obstructing the U.S. Food and Drug Administration's constitutionally mandated charge. Massachusetts has seen a spike in the number of opioid- and heroin-related deaths.


Americans increasingly prefer Democrats on healthcare: Reuters/Ipsos poll
15 Apr 2014 at 3:08pm

By Gabriel Debenedetti WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Americans increasingly think Democrats have a better plan for healthcare than Republicans, according to a Reuters/Ipsos poll conducted after the White House announced that more people than expected had signed up for the "Obamacare" health plan. Nearly one-third of respondents in the online survey released on Tuesday said they prefer Democrats' plan, policy or approach to healthcare, compared to just 18 percent for Republicans. Secretary of Health and Human Services Kathleen Sebelius stepped down last week after overseeing the law's rollout, including the HealthCare.gov website's tumultuous first weeks, when many users were unable to access the system to purchase or research their insurance options.
