(CBS) - Concerns over mercury levels in seafood and the possible effects on pregnant women may be overblown.

That's according to British researchers who say fish accounts for only 7 percent of mercury levels in the human body.  

They analyzed the diets of more than 4,500 pregnant women , looking at about 100 food and drink items the women consumed.

Doctors say eating fish during pregnancy can have a positive effect on a baby's IQ and eyesight.

 


 

 

(CBS) - The number of infants who sleep in the same bed as their parents jumped to about 13 percent since the early 90s.  

Researchers at the Yale School of Medicine interviewed about 19,000 parents across the country and found the trend is especially rising among minorities.

Scientists say bed-sharing puts babies at a higher risk of Sudden Infant Death Syndrome, or SIDS.  Doctors recommend that babies share a room with their parents but not a bed.



(CBS) - A global study of about 137-thousand people concludes that exercising in your spare time can significantly lower your risk of high blood pressure. The American Heart Association study shows that people who exercised more than four hours per week had a 19 percent lower risk of high blood pressure than those who exercised less than an hour a week.
