Stop Snoring Now|
Do You Have a Snoring Problem? Everyone snores occasionally, but if you're a habitual snorer when you sleep, you may actually have a real snoring problem. Snoring is a significant problem that can not only affect you, your health, and your ability to concentrate; but it can also affect the people who sleep in the same room—and sometimes in the same house—as you do.
Women who get cosmetic breast implants are nearly three times as likely to commit suicide as other women, US researchers have reported. The study, published in the Annals of Plastic Surgery, reinforces several others that have shown women who have breast implant enlargements have higher suicide risks.
Teenage girls with eating disorders
A national study has found the number of teenage girls with eating disorder behaviours has almost doubled to 18 per cent in the past six years. It was six years ago when Dr Jenny O'Dea, Associate Professor in nutrition and health education from the University of Sydney, first embarked on a study of the eating habits of young Australians.
AIDS drugs could replenish immune system
AIDS drug cocktails may be able to restore the ravaged immune systems of some people infected with HIV, researchers have reported. Immune cells known as CD4 T-cells returned to normal levels in an ideal group of patients, picked because they responded optimally to a combination of at least three AIDS drugs, the researchers reported in the Lancet medical journal.
Smoking linked to higher risk of dementia
If there were not already enough health reasons not to smoke, Australian researchers have just come up with another one. Researchers from the Australian National University (ANU) in Canberra reviewed the link between smoking and cognitive decline found that people who smoke face a much greater risk of developing all kinds of dementia.
Metformin tested on overweight women
Scientists are testing whether a popular diabetes drug Metformin can help young Australian women lose weight. Metformin is widely used for the treatment of type two diabetes but there is emerging evidence it also can help reduce appetite and body weight. Nutrition experts plan to test the medication's weight loss potential on overweight non-diabetic women aged between 18 and 35.
Inflammatory bowel diseases
Inflammatory bowel disease costs Australia $2.7 billion a year and is just as widespread as schizophrenia, a new report shows. The Access Economics study is the first assessment of the economic impact of Crohn's disease and ulcerative colitis, two incurable health disorders caused by inflamed intestines.
Parents confused over car seats
Parents are confused about how to keep their children safe in cars and most have no idea what the restraint laws dictate, according to a major review of child car safety. The national report released on Monday paints a grim picture of accident statistics, parental knowledge and current legislation surrounding kids and cars.
Campaign warns against smacking kids
A $2.5 million tax-payer funded campaign will warn parents not to smack their children. The guidelines will be released by a child welfare agency supported by the federal government and will be available in 16 languages. The Australian Childhood Foundation advises parents that smacking children teaches them that violence is acceptable later in life.
Recovered but not cured
For Richard McLean, being told he had schizophrenia was the best thing he'd heard in a long time. "When I got the diagnosis I did have a sigh of relief, to think at least we’ve got something to tackle." McLean says. "I think we were all floundering at the time. I had quite isolated myself from my family in a way that I knew I was going through something, but I didn’t want to be close to them so much because I still knew that I would be hurting them or upsetting them."
Triple asthma whammy for big girls
Overweight girls have triple the risk of developing asthma as adults, and Australian specialists believe female sex hormones might be at fault. In a world first, University of Melbourne researchers have found a link between childhood obesity and adult-onset asthma in women. The study of 1,500 people analysed the body mass index (BMI) of girls when they were seven years old and measured it against their lung function 25 years later.
Prostate cancer misdiagnosed in some men
Overweight men are far more likely to get misleading results to prostate cancer tests that compromise their treatment, new research has revealed. A study has found that prostate biopsies commonly used to diagnose the extent of the disease regularly underestimate the severity in men carrying extra weight. The results, published by US scientists on Wednesday, suggest that many men receive inadequate or inappropriate treatment that is not aggressive enough to combat the true nature of their disease.
Experts debunk beef-eating sperm claim
Claims that a mother's beef consumption can damage her son's sperm count and quality should not cause alarm in Australia, experts say. Australian male reproductive health specialists have spoken out against controversial findings in a US study which link meat-eating in pregnancy to fertility.
Government says no to fat kids obesity
A $100 million government plan to tackle childhood obesity may have been dumped because of a "blame the parents" mentality, a leading children's health expert says. Federal Health Minister Tony Abbott's office would not confirm reports the government's budget razor gang had cut a scheme that would have allowed parents to seek advice on their pre-school children from practice nurses
Blood-lead a worry for some Mt Isa kids
Ten per cent of children tested in Mount Isa for exposure to heavy metals have shown blood lead levels above the recommended international limits, a Queensland government study has found. But the government says it's too early to set up a full-scale investigation.
