Researchers have conducted more than 1,000 studies looking at this question, with mixed results. Some early studies seemed to show that coffee might increase risk of some cancer types. Since then, however, larger and better designed studies ha...

Life With A Traumatic Brain Injury -- Acknowledging The Truth And Moving On
I have a brain injury, but... I have a brain injury. There. I've said it. Publicly. It's so much easier to not say it, to not admit it, to not talk about it. For the first five months after my accident, I didn't talk about my brain injury with anyone. Because I didn't want to talk about it. I didn't want to explain how I felt, or discuss my symptoms, or detail how my healing was going. Even now, I'd rather my injury not be there (and I know how obvious and stupid that statement sounds). I'd rather not be injured, but I am. I have what neurologists classify as a traumatic brain injury, a TBI. Specifics: For the first t...

Plaque busting drug shows early promise in preventing Alzheimer's

Many people living with Alzheimer's disease, and their friends and loved ones, have had their hopes raised too many times. So it's important to be clear about what this study does and does not tell us: The study doesn't show whether the drug works to halt mental decline. The results don't show whether the drug can reverse symptoms of Alzheimer's disease. The best we can say ...
