Health Alert: Live Music soothes premature babies

Posted: Updated:

(CBS) - A new study finds pre-mature babies who listen to live music are better able to eat, sleep and become comfortable in their new surroundings. Researchers studied nearly 300 infants in 11 hospital neo-natal units. The sounds that improved a preemies' vital signs had rhythms that matched the infant's breathing rate or sounded like the mother's heartbeat. Preemies also did better when they listened to sounds of the ocean and to their parents' singing lullabies.


(CBS) - Social networks may influence parents who are deciding whether to vaccinate their children. Researchers surveyed nearly 200 parents in and around Seattle, an area that has lower-than-average vaccination rates. They asked the parents to list the people and sources they consulted regarding vaccinations. The study found those who chose not yo vaccinate had a large percentage of acquaintances in their social networks who were against vaccinations.


(CBS) - Researchers at Mount Sinai have discovered gene variations that could help doctors find new ways to treat cardiovascular disease. The study linked 14 genetic variations to heart rate. Since heart rate is the measure of cardiovascular health, experts say the findings help shed light on the role genes play in staying healthy.
