Health Alert: No increased CV risk with Azithromycin

Posted: Updated:

(CBS) - A new study finds the antibiotic Azithromycin is not linked to increased risk of death from heart problems in young and middle aged adults. Previous research has shown an association between using Azithromycin, which is commonly called a "Z-Pack" and deadly cardiovascular issues. Now researchers in Denmark suggest only people at high risk have to worry -- meaning those with existing heart problems.


(CBS) - Using lipstick could be hazardous to your health. Researchers at Berkeley's School of Public Health say levels of metal found in some lipsticks and glosses can raise potential health problems. Toxic amounts of aluminum, lead and other metals can be ingested if the lipstick or gloss is not blotted with a tissue. The levels also raise concern for young children who often play with lipstick. Doctors say excessive intake of metals over time can lead to stomach tumors and nerve problems.


(CBS) - Video games may help seniors keep their mind sharp. A study at the University of Iowa shows older people who play video games prevent mental decline. Doctors looked at seniors who played a video game for ten hours and say one year later those people increased their cognitive ability at least three years.
