(CBS) - Aspirin may reduce a woman's chances of developing melanoma. New research in the journal Cancer looked at nearly 60,000 women for about 12 years. The study found women who used aspirin had a 21 percent lower risk of melanoma. Women who used aspirin for five years or longer had a 30 percent lower risk. Researchers did not find the same link when they looked at other pain medications like acetaminophen.

 


(CBS) - Kids may lose immunity to whooping cough in the years after they get the fifth dose of the DTaP vaccine, which protects against the disease. The study in the journal Pediatrics tracked the immunization records of children in Oregon and Minnesota and compared them to cases of whooping cough. They found an increase in the highly contagious disease in children in the six years after they got the fifth dose of the vaccine.

 


(CBS) - Certain diabetes medications may help protect patients from developing heart failure.
