(CBS) - Norovirus is now the leading cause of gastroenteritis or stomach flu in children under 5 in the U.S. The Centers For Disease Control and Prevention says the highly contagious virus led to nearly one million pediatric doctors' visits in 2009 and 2010. Babies and young children are very vulnerable to norovirus, which can make them dehydrated after sudden intense vomiting and severe diarrhea. There is no vaccine to prevent the virus.

 


 

(CBS) - British researchers may have figured out what causes some childhood ear infections. They found a flaw in the way the human ear develops. They believe in order to make room for the three tiny bones in the ear..the lining of the middle ear develops without tiny hairs. That leaves the ear unable to clear fluid efficiently.

 


 

(CBS) - Energy drinks may increase blood pressure and disrupt your heart's natural rhythm according to California researchers. They examined people who just consumed one to three energy drinks and found they had a significant jump in blood pressure and longer heartbeat intervals. Prolonged heartbeat intervals can cause cardiac arrest.


(CNN) - For years the egg has been touted as a no-no food, because it contains a high amount of cholesterol. But now nutritionists are saying, one whole egg can be part of our diet. According to the Mayo Clinic, the average healthy individual should limit daily cholesterol intake to 300 milligrams a day. One egg has 186 milligrams of cholesterol, but it also has 13 essential vitamins and minerals and is packed with plenty of protein and antioxidants, which are good for the heart. It only has 70 calories. If you suffer from high cholesterol, ask your doctor if eggs are good for your diet.
