TUESDAY, July 9, 2019 (HealthDay News) -- Could having kids prompt you to eat healthier foods? Apparently so, a new study suggests. Americans buy more fruits and vegetables after they become parents, researchers found. "Although adult food preferences are considered relatively stable, major life events such as becoming parents may serve as a cue to behavior change," explained study author Betsy Cliff, a doctoral candidate at the University of Michigan's School of Public Health. In the study, researchers looked at just over 500 U.S. households where shopping habits were tracked as part of an ongoing consumer study. The previously childless households had children between 2007 and 2015. On average, the proportion of a household's grocery budget spent on fresh produce rose from an...

TUESDAY, July 9, 2019 (HealthDay News) -- Doctors at the Cleveland Clinic announced that they've achieved a first in North America: delivering a baby from a uterus that had been transplanted from a deceased donor. The healthy baby girl was delivered by C-section in June. This is only the second time such a delivery has happened worldwide, the first having occurred in Brazil in December. "We couldn't have asked for a better outcome. Everything went wonderfully with the delivery, the mother and baby girl are doing great," Dr. Uma Perni, a Cleveland Clinic maternal-fetal medicine specialist, said in a hospital news release. Perni stressed that "it's important to remember this is still research. The field of uterus transplantation is rapidly evolving, and it's exciting to see what the...

TUESDAY, July 9, 2019 (HealthDay News) -- Heartfelt talks between parent and child are essential to help kids overcome tough times and do their best at school, a new study says. Traumatic events in a kid's life can cause the child to neglect school work and increase the odds that they'll wind up repeating a grade, researchers found. But having even one parent lend a kind and caring ear appears to help kids work past the toxic stress caused by those events, resulting in better performance at school, according to the study. A sympathetic parent has a stronger impact on a troubled child's educational performance than whether they eat regular family meals or live in a safe and well-kept neighborhood, said lead researcher Dr. Angelica Robles. She's a pediatrician with Novant Health...

Hormone Treatment for Prostate Cancer Linked to Heightened Alzheimer's Risk

MONDAY, July 8, 2019 (HealthDay News) -- Soon after a man is diagnosed with prostate cancer, drugs that lower levels of testosterone are often offered as treatment, since testosterone fuels the cancer's growth. But a major new study suggests that this approach might have an unwanted side effect: Higher odds for Alzheimer's disease and other dementias. "Our results suggest that clinicians need to raise their awareness about potential long-term cognitive effects of hormone therapy and discuss these risks with their patients," said study author Ravishankar Jayadevappa. He's a research associate professor of geriatrics at the University of Pennsylvania's Perelman School of Medicine in Philadelphia. One expert said it does raise troubling questions. "Most of us are becoming as afraid...
