Health Alert: Back and neck pain not linked to weather

(CBS)- Many people believe changes in weather can trigger back and neck pain, but researchers at the University of Sydney, Australia say they are not linked.  They looked at the case studies of about one thousand patients and the weather data over the course of a year.  They found no association between body aches and temperature, humidity, air pressure, wind direction or precipitation.

(CBS)- There is new hope for women who have cysts on their ovaries.  PCOS or polycystic ovary syndrome is the most common cause of infertility in women.  Penn State conducted a nationwide study on two drugs and found Letrozole worked better.  More than a quarter of the infertile women who took the drug went on to give birth.  The other drug Clomiphine , which has been the standard treatment, had lower success rates and more side effects, including a higher rate of multiple pregnancies.

(CBS)-  Go outside and play. A new study in the Journal of Pediatrics finds children who spend most of their time outdoors after school are three times more likely to meet physical activity guidelines. The World Health Organization recommends children get a minimum of 60 minutes of moderate to vigorous physical activity a day.
