(CAPE CANAVERAL, Fla.) — The results are finally in for the first chocolate chip cookie bake-off in space. While looking more or less normal, the best cookies required two hours of baking time last month up at the International Space Station. It takes far less time on Earth, under 20 minutes. And how do they taste? No one knows. Still sealed in individual baking pouches and packed in their spaceflight container, the cookies remain frozen in a Houston-area lab after splashing down two weeks ago in a SpaceX capsule. They were the first food baked in space from raw ingredients. The makers of the oven expected a differen...

BOSTON (CBS) — Do you ever have a hard time resisting temptation, like pizza or chocolate cake? A new study finds you may just be wired that way. Impulsive behavior, defined as acting without thinking about the consequences, has been linked to overeating, binging, weight gain and obesity. Researchers at the University of Georgia have discovered a brain circuit affects whether you can say “no” to tempting foods. They found when they stimulated cells in a particular region of the brain in rats, they more impulsively pressed a lever to receive high-fat, high-sugar pellets.

BOSTON (CBS) – How much would you need to exercise to work off a candy bar or a bag of chips? The Royal Society for Public Health in the United Kingdom is looking to add so-called “activity labels” to foods. They want to make it easier for consumers to understand how much exercise they would need to do to burn calories in a particular food. For example, a label might indicate it would require 29 minutes of swimming to work off a chocolate bar, or 15 minutes of running for a can of soda. British researchers predict the new labels could motivate people to cut 200 calories a day and would be three times more...

This Under-Utilized Drug Is Actually Critical for Treatment-Resistant Depression
Many people with clinical depression have tried an array of medication and still feel sick. Maybe they’ve tried different selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs) or selective norepinephrine reuptake inhibitors (SNRIs). Maybe they’ve taken these antidepressants along with an antipsychotic (a common strategy to boost effectiveness). Either way, the lack of improvement can make individuals feel even more hopeless and fear the darkness will never lift. If this sounds all-too familiar, you’re definitely not alone. In fact, up to 30 percent of people with depression don’t respond to the first few ...
