    Every additional 4 inches in height increases your risk of varicose veins by about 25 percent, said researcher Dr. Erik Ingelsson, a professor of cardiovascular medicine with Stanford University School of Medicine.

  • Children Caring for Parents: Trials and Rewards
    When parents of adult children become ill, it's often up to their children to become caregivers. It's a role reversal fraught with challenges, but it can also offer loving rewards.

  • If Mom Smokes Pot, Kids May Try It Sooner
    For the study, the researchers analyzed data on 4,440 children and 2,586 mothers. More specifically, they assessed how a mother's habit influenced the age at which her children started using the drug.

  • Thinking of Others Makes Healthy Choices Easier
    The new study found that people who were prompted to either think about others, or to have spiitual thoughts, were more likely to become more physically active.

    Although most dogs and cats handle this powerful pesticide just fine, others can have severe reactions, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration said Thursday.

  • Parents Fret Over Fussy Eaters - but What Works?
    Parents who use coercion or bribes to deter picky eating may be setting the child up for problems down the road, Australian researchers have found.

    A new CDC study found a dramatic drop in the number of sexually active U.S. teens, and of those teens, nearly 90 percent used some form of birth control the last time they had sex.

  • Contact Lenses May Harbor Serious, Blinding Infection
    Cases of an eye infection called Acanthamoeba keratitis have tripled in southeast England since 2011, a new study found. For one in every four of people infected, the disease results in a loss of most of their vision or blindness, the research team said. It’s typically caused by poor contact lens hygiene.

  • More Americans Are Recording Their Doctor Visits
    In a new study, almost 30 percent of doctors surveyed said they had recorded a visit for a patient's use. And about 19 percent of U.S. adults said they'd done so themselves -- usually after asking the doctor's permission.

  • Regular Bedtime Might Be Key to Better Health
    A study of more than 1,900 older adults has found that those who didn't keep to a regular bedtime and wake time weighed more, had higher blood sugar, higher blood pressure and a higher risk of heart attack or stroke within 10 years.

  • Your Puppy Can Make You Very Sick: CDC

  • Is 100 the New 80? What's It Take to Live Longer?
    As more and more people live to 100, researchers want to know what separates them from those who live the average, expected 80 years. Of course exercise, a good diet, and other healthy choices key. But studies show genes are pretty important, too. So do you have to win the genetic lottery to live a whole century? Or can science unlock the secret to spreading the genetic wealth?
