Health Alert

(CBS) - Eating fatty fish may lower a woman's risk of rheumatoid arthritis.

A new study from Sweden looked at more than 32-thousand women and found a weekly portion of fatty fish, such as salmon, or four servings of lean fish, such as cod, can cut the risk of developing rheumatoid arthritis in half.

Researchers say the benefits are likely because the fish are high in omega 3 fatty acids.

Researchers at Cincinnati Children's Hospital Medical Center used a driving simulator to test 16- and 17-year-olds and found drivers with ADHD had significantly more variability in speed and lane position, even with no distractions present.

They found texting affected speed and lane position for all teen drivers in the study.
