Studies Reveal Health Risks Of E-Cigarettes | IFLScience

Studies Reveal Health Risks Of E-Cigarettes | IFLScience | HealthEducation - Health Promoting schools | Scoop.it
“There’s no such thing as a safe cigarette.” This is a line that has been used to describe menthols, filtered cigarettes, and slims, but it also applies to the latest product for smokers: electronic cigarettes. They have been widely heralded by users and manufacturers as a completely harmless smoking alternative, but there isn’t much research to back up that statement. Recent studies have shown that they still contain tiny particles that can irritate lung tissue and could cause disease.

Sugary drinks linked to earlier onset of menstrual periods

Sugary drinks linked to earlier onset of menstrual periods | HealthEducation - Health Promoting schools | Scoop.it
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.

Contraception Drives Decline in Teen Pregnancy—and Expanded Access to LARC Methods Could Accelerate this Trend

Contraception Drives Decline in Teen Pregnancy—and Expanded Access to LARC Methods Could Accelerate this Trend | HealthEducation - Health Promoting schools | Scoop.it
For the first time, the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) has recommended that pediatricians consider long-acting reversible contraceptive (LARC) methods—namely, hormonal and copper intrauterine devices (IUDs) and hormonal implants—as “first-line contraceptive choices for adolescents.” The statement, published in the journal Pediatrics, encourages pediatricians to counsel their adolescent patients on the broad range of contraceptive methods, starting with LARC methods because they are easy to use and extremely effective. The new recommendations also encourage pediatricians to acquire the skills to provide these methods themselves or identify providers to whom they can refer patients.
