Cuba resumes U.S. chicken imports after bird flu halt: traders
7 Oct 2015 at 9:31am
By Marc Frank HAVANA (Reuters) - Cubahas purchased at least 30 million pounds (13 million kg) of U.S. chicken for delivery in October, traders told Reuters, ending a two-month suspension that Cuba attributed to a bird flu epidemic affecting the U.S. poultry industry. A letter emailed in June to traders from Alimport, the Communist-run country's food importer, saidCubawould not accept bids for delivery of chicken in August and September, "taking into account the animal health situation." Alimport has not publicly commented on the issue and did not immediately respond to requests from Reuters to confirm the lifting of the ban. Cubais allowed to purchase U.S. agricultural goods for cash under a 2000 exception to the trade embargo.

MSF seeks independent inquiry into U.S. attack on Afghan hospital
7 Oct 2015 at 9:27am

By Stephanie Nebehay and Daniel Bases GENEVA/NEW YORK (Reuters) - Medecins Sans Frontieres called on Wednesday for an independent international commission to investigate the deadly U.S. bombing of its hospital in Kunduz in Afghanistan, which it deems a war crime. The medical charity said that the inquiry would gather facts and evidence from the United States, NATO and Afghanistan, as well as testimony from MSF staff and patients who survived Saturday's attack. "If we let this go, as if was a non-event, we are basically giving a blank cheque to any countries who are at war," MSF International President Joanne Liu told a news briefing.

Gay, bisexual men report more indoor tanning, skin cancer
7 Oct 2015 at 8:31am
By Andrew M. Seaman (Reuters Health) - - Sexual orientation may be a factor in a person's risks of skin cancer and of using indoor tanning devices, suggests a new study. Gay and bisexual men were up to six times more likely than straight men to use indoor tanning devices and to experience skin cancer while lesbian and bisexual women were about half as likely as straight women to do either, researchers found. "Unfortunately, we weren't able to directly prove a link between indoor tanning and an increased risk of skin cancer," said Dr. Matthew Mansh, who did the research while he was a medical student at Stanford University in California.

Weight-loss surgery linked to increased suicide risk
7 Oct 2015 at 8:19am
By Lisa Rapaport (Reuters Health) - - Patients may be more likely to harm themselves or attempt suicide after weight-loss surgery, a Canadian study suggests. Most of them had a common type of bariatric surgery known as gastric bypass, which helps patients shed excess pounds by reducing stomach capacity from about three pints to the size of a shot glass. During the first three years after surgery, 111 patients received emergency care for self-inflicted injuries, or roughly 1 percent of people in the study.

Brain scans could predict patients at risk of major depression
7 Oct 2015 at 8:04am
By Kate Kelland LONDON (Reuters) - Scientists studying people with depression say brain scans could be used to predict who is most likely to relapse, an approach that could help doctors make better decisions about who should stay on antidepressants and who should stop. In a small study of 64 patients, the researchers found that significant differences showed up in brain scans of those who later went on to have a recurrence of their depression. While the results need first to be replicated and improved upon, Roland Zahn, who led the work, said the approach may prove important in the future "as there are currently no accurate ways to predict those who will have a recurrence following recovery".

Breastfed infants may get enough vitamin D in mothers? milk
7 Oct 2015 at 7:21am
By Lisa Rapaport (Reuters Health) - - Infants may get enough vitamin D from breast milk if their mothers take high-dose vitamin D supplements, a U.S. study suggests, offering a potential alternative to the vitamin drops parents are currently advised to give nursing babies. Pediatricians recommend that mothers exclusively breastfeed infants until at least six months of age because it can reduce babies? risk of ear and respiratory infections, sudden infant death syndrome, allergies, childhood obesity and diabetes.

Goth teens more likely to self-harm and be depressed
7 Oct 2015 at 7:19am
By Madeline Kennedy (Reuters Health) ? - Teens identifying with the ?goth? culture may be more vulnerable to depression and self-harm, according to a UK study. More than a third of goth teens reported hurting themselves on purpose and nearly a fifth reported being depressed - rates that were around three times higher than among other teens, which suggests that gravitating to the goth lifestyle could be a sign of a teen at risk, researchers said. ?The subcultures that young people identify with has not been studied very much in relation to psychiatric outcomes,? said lead author Lucy Bowes, a research fellow at the University of Oxford in England.

Electronic health records software often written without doctors? input
7 Oct 2015 at 7:18am
By Kathryn Doyle (Reuters Health) - The reason why many doctors find electronic health records (EHR) difficult to use might be that the software wasn't properly tested, researchers suggests. Current guidelines and industry standards suggest that new EHR software should be tested by at least 15 end users with a clinical background to make sure they are usable and safe before they get federal certification. Despite the guidelines, ?there?s no explicit requirement for end user testers to have a clinical background,? said Raj M. Ratwani of MedStar Health in Washington, D.C., who worked on the study.

Why the Microsoft Band 2 could be a sleeper hit
7 Oct 2015 at 4:35am

Microsoft's first notebook computer and its smartphones that double as PCs may have snatched the headlines at its October 6 hardware event, but it could well be the company's second-generation health and fitness tracker that makes the biggest contribution to the quality of people's lives. The Microsoft Band 2 arrives as health and fitness trackers are getting more scientific and health-related scrutiny and, according to research published this week by the National Sleep Foundation (NSF) in partnership with the Consumer Electronics Association (CEA), they're having a positive impact on sleep. "That's an encouraging number for a still nascent technology," said David Cloud, CEO of NSF.

DNA scientists win 2015 Nobel Prize for Chemistry
7 Oct 2015 at 4:00am

Sweden's Tomas Lindahl, American Paul Modrich and Turkish-born Aziz Sancar won the 2015 Nobel Prize for Chemistry for work on mapping how cells repair damaged DNA, giving insight into cancer treatments, the award-giving body said on Wednesday. "Their work has provided fundamental knowledge of how a living cell functions and is, for instance, used for the development of new cancer treatments," the Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences said in a statement awarding the 8 million Swedish crowns ($969,000) Thousands of spontaneous changes to a cell's genome occur on a daily basis while radiation, free radicals and carcinogenic substances can also damage DNA. To keep genetic materials from disintegrating, a range of molecular systems monitor and repair DNA, in processes that the three award-winning scientists all helped map out, opening the door to applications such as new cancer treatments.

South Africa's Transnet considering billions in capex cuts: sources
7 Oct 2015 at 3:42am
South African logistics utility Transnet is considering up to 200 billion rand ($14.5 billion) in cuts to its capital expansion plans over the next three years, two sources at the company said, as the global demand for iron ore and coal stalls. A second senior source confirmed the "drastic" plans meant capital spending over the next three years under the plan was likely to drop to 100-150 billion rand because demand for the iron ore that Transnet ships is falling on slow growth in China. "It's because of the downturn ? the volumes are not matching that well with the capital expenditure," said the source, adding that the company's plans to expand its coal and manganese lines would not be affected. is part of GropWeb Network, online properties of GroupWeb Media LLC.
