(CBS) - Vitamin D supplements may be a lot more, or a lot less potent than the label says. That's according to researchers in Oregon who tested 55 bottles of dietary supplements. They found the amount of vitamin D in the tested pills ranged from nine percent to 146 percent of the amount on the label. The supplement industry is not strictly regulated, and the FDA is considering new safety guidelines.

 


 

(CBS) - High blood pressure during pregnancy could be a warning signal for health problems later in life. Researchers in Finland followed women who had babies in 1966. They found that women who had high blood pressure during pregnancy were two to five times more likely to die from heart attacks. They were also more likely to come down with kidney disease and diabetes.

 


 

(CBS) - A new study on alcohol abuse and depression shows the two are more closely linked than many people think, including doctors. Researchers found that many people who think they drink because they're depressed are only having mood problems because they abuse alcohol. Their depression usually goes away when they stop drinking. The study recommends that doctors consider a patients' alcohol use before prescribing anti-depressants.
