You Asked: Can a Breakup Make You Sick?
Love hurts, but a breakup can be agony—even beyond the emotional pain. If you’ve gone through a highly emotional split, researchers say your immune system can take a significant hit. “Breaking up with a partner leaves people feeling blue and lonely, even when it’s something they wanted,” says Janice Kiecolt-Glaser, a professor of psychiatry and director of the Institute for Behavioral Medicine Research at Ohio State University. “Time heals wounds, and people recover, but the time course for recovery is related to how much a person continues to be preoccupied with thoughts of their former...

Steroid hormones could hold further clues about age-related bone loss
(Medical College of Georgia at Augusta University) Previous research has shown that the protein histone deacetylase 3, or HDAC3, turns off the genes that encourage the stem cells in our bone marrow to make and store fat instead of making bone. As HDAC3 levels decrease naturally with age, bones become less dense and easily breakable. Now scientists looking further upstream to hopefully explain the mechanism behind that process are finding some conflicting results. (Source: EurekAlert! - Medicine and Health)

Study offers scientific explanation for why spurned males abandon courtship attempts
(University of California - Riverside) Unsuccessful courtship attempts by males create aversive memories that can reduce their level of enthusiasm for subsequent courtship attempts. Scientists at UC Riverside and colleagues have attempted to understand this behavior at the molecular level. Using the fruit fly as a model organism, the researchers show that the body's hormonal state is critical to the maintenance of such " courtship memories. " Two hormones and dopamine, a neurotransmitter, are required in the brain to maintain courtship memories. (Source: EurekAlert! - Medicine and Health)

Why Hormone Replacement Therapy May Be Safer Than You Think
The pendulum has swung from one extreme to the other when it comes to hormone replacement therapy (HRT) to treat symptoms of menopause. At first, the replacement hormones—mostly a combination of estrogen and progestin to replace what the body stops making after menopause—were seen as a panacea. Doctors thought they could not only relieve hot flashes and night sweats, but also prevent chronic aging diseases like heart problems and weakening bones. But studies then found that the supplement hormones could lead to a higher risk of breast cancer—and that they didn’t protect the heart after all. In the l...
