Keep Your Teen Moving To Reduce Risk Of Depression, Study Says
(CNN) — Science shows moderate to vigorous aerobic exercise is good for us — it improves sleep; lowers blood pressure; protects against heart disease, diabetes and cancer; reduces stress; boosts mood; and fights anxiety and depression.

But unless your child is an athlete, it can be tough to wean them away from social media and the ever-present screen to swim laps or go for a blood-pumping jog. A new study has some good news: even light exercise may help protect children against developing depression. T...

Melanoma Rates Dropping In Young People, Skin Cancer Study Says
BOSTON (CBS) — Melanoma is the deadliest form of skin cancer, but a new study published in JAMA Dermatology finds melanoma rates are actually dropping, at least in young people. Melanoma is linked to exposing skin to ultraviolet light (UV), most notably through sunburns during childhood. Researchers looked at data from almost a million cases of invasive melanoma between 2006 and 2015, and found that while the rates ticked up in adults over 40, they dropped 23% among adolescents and adults under 30. They say this suggests that public health efforts to get people to use sun protection and avoid excessive UV exposure is...
