When people are injured while binge drinking, it can increase infection risk and lead to them being hospitalized for twice as long and being twice as likely to die. But why?
The Lancet Oncology publish the findings of a special commission formed to analyze the quality of cancer care in three large countries that present major health care challenges.
Around a quarter of pop songs contain references to drinking or alcohol brands, and new research shows teens who recognize alcohol brands from music are more likely to binge drink.
Though women who breastfeed are typically warned that medications can enter breast milk, new research suggests the benefits of remaining on antidepressants outweigh the risks.
Current human safety levels for exposure to endocrine-disrupting chemicals are based on studies of rodent models. But new research has now questioned the accuracy of this method.
Neuroscientists investigate 'object-based attention,' which allows us to pick a face we recognize out of a crowd, and find it is produced by three synchronized brain regions.
Researchers who found some cancers caused by a mutation in the BRAF gene need copper to fuel tumor growth, suggest they may be treatable with drugs that block copper absorption.
The influenza A virus produces a protein that manages to outwit the body's natural defenses. Blocking it offers a route to new flu drugs, say the researchers who discovered it.
Those of us who have been on long-haul flights will have endured jet lag. Now, researchers have created a smartphone app that they say can help travelers quickly overcome it.
Scientists have engineered human cartilage for nostril reconstruction, while another team has grown artificial vaginas - both procedures used cells from the patients' own bodies.
Researchers have discovered how Epstein-Barr virus takes over cells, allowing the virus to make a copy of itself - a finding that could produce drug targets.
New trial finds that low dose aspirin does not prevent pregnancy loss in all women who have recently miscarried, but did increase chance of conception and live birth for some.
For missing children's cases, accurately predicting the aging process is quite tricky. But now, researchers have created a software program that accurately predicts appearance.
Previous studies have found that people with memory and thinking problems may be less likely to die from cancer. But why? New research from Spain investigates.
Scientists may have found agents that overcome drug resistance by helping conventional antibiotics like penicillin to resist the enzymes that superbugs produce to undermine them.
After years of trying to gain access to clinical trial data for influenza antivirals, researchers have reviewed such data and found that the drugs are not as effective as claimed.
MRSA varies greatly in toxicity from case to case, which makes prescribing appropriate individual treatment challenging. Could whole genome sequencing help doctors assess toxicity?
Researchers from MIT have found that droplets from coughs and sneezes travel up to 200 times farther than previously estimated, thanks to 'gas clouds.'
This year, Alcohol Awareness Month tackles the issue of underage drinking. We take a look at the associated statistics to see how much of a problem underage drinking is in 2014.
Mutations in the BRCA1 gene are known to increase the risk of breast and ovarian cancer. Now, researchers have uncovered a link between this gene and brain development.
