Fewer Americans Than Ever Are Smoking. Will Vaping Take Its Place?
Tobacco use in the U.S. is changing, according to new data from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). The number of American adults who smoke fell to a new low in 2018, while e-cigarette use continued to climb. About a fifth of American adults used some type of tobacco product in 2018, according to the data. Cigarettes were the most popular, used by 13.7% of adults. That’s a small decrease from 14% the year before, and another record low for the U.S., which has seen a two-thirds decline in smoking since 1965. Meanwhile, e-cigarette use rose from 2.8% of U.S. adults in 2017 to 3.2% in 2018. Use of...

How Juul Hooked Kids and Ignited a Public Health Crisis
In the Scheetz household, back-to-school anxiety reached new heights this fall. Jami Scheetz’s 15-year-old son Devon, who has severe asthma, kicked a brutal vaping habit over the summer, with help from a nicotine patch. But as soon as school started and he was once again around kids vaping, his habit returned. On Sept. 12, Devon vaped at school and immediately began sweating and vomiting. Though Scheetz, who lives in Sellersville, Pa., says her son is now fine, she can’t shake thoughts of kids who have been hospitalized or died after using e-cigarettes. “Vaping scares me more [than smoking], because they ...

It is used by some people for its nutritional value and “[a]ccording to an old legend, Buddha (Prince Siddharta Gautama) founder of Buddism, was able to survive eating only one hemp seed each day for six years.” The seeds themselves do not contain any psyc...

UCLA study links progenitor cells to age-related prostate growth
The prostates of older mice contain more luminal progenitor cells — cells capable of generating new prostate tissue — than the prostates of younger mice, UCLA researchers have discovered.The observation,published in  Cell Reports, helps explain why, as people age, the prostate tends to grow, leading to an increased risk for prostate cancer and other conditions.“Understanding what’s causing the prostate to grow with age helps us to consider strategies to prevent the expansion of these cells and possibly reduce a person’s risk for prostate growth or disease,” said Andrew Goldstein, me...

In the lab, this mix of drugs slowed down uncontrolled growth of mouse cells engineered to carry the cancer-causing mutation. (Source: EurekAlert! - Biology)

Momentum is growing for a nationwide movement to raise the legal age of tobacco purchase from 18 to 21.
