(CBS) - A new study of the H1N1 vaccine finds it is associated with a small increased risk of a rare paralyzing condition called Guillain-Barre Syndrome. Federal researchers found 77 people came down with the rare illness within the first 3 months of getting vaccinated. That's more than twice as many cases as normal. In Guillain-Barre, the immune system attacks the body, affecting movement. It typically takes patients months to recover. 23 million people received the H1N1 vaccination in 2009. Researchers say the benefits far outweigh the risks.


(CBS) - Americans gain an average of 6 to 13 pounds after they quit smoking. So researchers wanted to know if the extra weight – a known risk factor for heart disease -- cancels out the benefits of quitting. Their findings: smokers who gave up the habit lowered their risk of cardiovascular disease more than 50 percent – despite gaining significant weight. The study is in the Journal of the American Medical Association.


(CNN) - Some breast cancer patients may develop post-traumatic stress disorder -- that's according to research done by the Journal of the National Cancer Institute. The study of more than 11-hundred participants found that 23-percent of newly diagnosed breast cancer patients experience some symptoms of PTSD like anxiety and trouble sleeping. Younger women, and African-American and Asian women, were most likely to develop the disorder.
