Repeated alcohol exposure during adolescence results in long-lasting changes in the region of the brain that controls learning and memory, according to a research team at Duke Medicine that used a rodent model as a surrogate for humans. The study, published in the journal Alcoholism: Clinical & Experimental Research, provides new insights at the cellular level for how alcohol exposure during adolescence, before the brain is fully developed, can result in cellular and synaptic abnormalities that have enduring, detrimental effects on behavior.
Já ouviu falar de Mycoplasma Genitalium? A bactéria já era conhecida desde os anos 1980, pela sigla MG, mas recentemente tem sido referida como "uma nova doença sexualmente transmissível", graças a uma investigação da University College London que mostrou fortes provas de que a infeção bacteriológica se espalhe através do contacto sexual.

In a prospective study conducted in the United States, the overwhelming majority of women who terminated pregnancies in 2008–2010 felt that having an abortion had been the right decision for them, and this feeling was sustained over three years. At each follow-up interview, about 95% of women reported that abortion had been the right decision. However, the higher the women's pregnancy planning score and the more difficulty they had had in deciding to terminate the pregnancy, the lower their odds of reporting that abortion had been the right decision (odds ratios, 0.7 and 0.5, respectively). Negative emotions related to the abortion were positively associated with perceived level of abortion stigma and negatively associated with level of social support (coefficients, 0.5 and −0.6, respectively). In addition, the study showed that emotions related to the abortion, both negative and positive, decreased over time.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) have warned the public that the Ebola virus may survive in semen long after it is undetectable in other bodily fluids.

Girls who frequently consume sugary drinks tend to start their menstrual periods earlier than girls who do not, according to new research. The findings are important not only because of the growing problem of childhood obesity in a number of developed countries, but also because starting periods earlier is linked to an increased risk of breast cancer later in life.
