Health Alert: Endometriosis linked to pesticides

Posted: Updated:

Researchers say the chemicals showed up in blood samples from patients even though the pesticides have been banned  for decades.

Women with higher exposure had a 30 to 70 percent increased risk of endometriosis.

That's when the tissue that lines the uterus grows outside the womb. 



(CBS) - Eating disorders are more common in boys than most people realize.

Researchers in Boston found that 17 percent of teenage boys surveyed were extremely concerned about their weight and physique.

Those boys were more likely to engage in risky behaviors including frequent binge drinking and drug use.



(CBS) - Middle-aged women who follow a Mediterranean-style diet are more likely to be in better physical and mental health as they age.

Researchers found women who ate a diet filled with vegetables, whole grains and fish were 40 percent more likely to live past the age of 70 with no chronic illnesses and no cognitive impairment.
