Health Alert: Universal flu vaccine in the works

Posted: Updated:

(CBS) - Scientists are moving closer to developing a universal flu vaccine.

Using data gathered during the 2009 pandemic, London researchers found people  who didn't get very sick had more of a certain virus killing cell in their blood.

They are working to develop a drug that stimulates the body to produce those cells, which one day could be used as a universal flu vaccine.

(CBS) - New research shows 92 percent of new mothers experience at least one breast feeding concern within three days of giving birth.

Many women experience pain or have problems getting their baby to nurse properly.

Doctors at Cincinnati Children's Hospital say new strategies are needed to help our new mothers. 

(CBS) - Artificial sweeteners may not help you lose weight.

Researchers at Yale University say people who drink artificially sweetened products are more likely to choose high calorie alternatives later on. Scientists say the sweeteners do not provide the amount of energy that the brain craves.

They suggest a happy medium, combing sweeteners with small amounts of sugar.
