Health Alert: Young obese men at risk for health problems

Posted: Updated:

(CBS) - New research shows young men in their twenties who are obese are more likely to develop serious health problems by the time they reach middle age. The study tracked 65-hundred 22 year old men in Denmark over three decades. Researchers found almost half of those considered obese developed diabetes, blood clots or had a heart attack or stroke. Many died before reaching the age of 55.


(CBS) - A new study in the Journal The Lancet looks at how effective common drugs are at preventing breast cancer. Researchers discovered women taking drugs including Tamoxifen and Raloxifene -- were 38 percent less likely to develop the most common type of breast cancer than those given a placebo. The reduced risk extended at least five years after stopping treatment. Some women are hesitant to take the drugs because of possible side effects including a greater risk of developing blood clots and endometrial cancer.


(CBS) - Following a Mediterranean diet may help improve your memory and brain function. New research in the Journal Neurology shows healthy people who followed the diet were 19 percent less likely to develop problems with their memory or thinking abilities. The diet includes eating plenty of foods that contain Omega-3 fatty acids like fish, chicken and salad dressing -- while avoiding saturated fats, meat and dairy products.
