Health Alert: Southern style foods could increase your risk for stroke

Posted: Updated:

(CBS) - Eating southern style foods could raise your risk of stroke. Researchers at the University of Alabama looked at diets high in fried foods, bacon, ham and liver, as well as sugary drinks like sweet tea. They found the fatty, salty, sugary foods can lead to high cholesterol, high blood pressure and diabetes, which can raise the risk of stroke more than 40 percent.


(CBS) - Stress on the job can lead to health risks like smoking and over-eating. But researchers say there's no evidence it causes cancer. A study in the British Medical Journal looked at work related stress and found no link to the development of colorectal, lung, breast or prostate cancers. However, job strain can cause chronic inflammation, which may be a cancer risk.


(CBS) - More mothers are choosing to breastfeed their babies. A report from the Centers for Disease Control shows a four percent increase in the number of mothers nursing their newborns between 2000 and 2008. The number of moms who continued breastfeeding past six months jumped nearly 10 percent. The CDC says breastfeeding is good for both mother and baby.
