America ’s Drinking Habits Are Killing More Young People, Study Suggests
Liver disease deaths are growing more common in the U.S. and disproportionately affecting younger Americans, according to a recent study. The paper, published in The BMJ just a day after a Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) report on rising liver cancer death rates, paints a troubling picture of how Americans’ drinking habits may be affecting their health. While the new study couldn’t prove causation, the researchers say drinking is likely to blame for the growing number of adults aged 24 to 35 who are dying from cirrhosis, or scarring of the liver. The researchers used deaths logged in the CDC&r...

Young Adults Are Drinking Themselves To Death, Study Finds
ANN ARBOR, Mich. (CBS Local) – A disturbing new study declares that a growing number of young Americans are drinking themselves to death.

First off, as someone probably hasn’t ever said, history is just the same things happening with different people. So a Conservative government led by a weak Prime Minister who had come to power on the back of an internal Tory election seemed to be on the brink of losing office and led a party obsessed with, and riven by, divisions on Europe. Replace Brexit with Maastricht and you get the drift. But good news was that the “longest recession since the 1930s” was officially over and the economy grew by 0.2% in the first three months of the year.

CDC: U.S. Birth Rate Hits 30-Year Low, Fertility Rate Falling
NEW YORK (CBS Local) – U.S. birth rates declined last year for women in their teens, 20s and — surprisingly — their 30s, leading to the fewest babies in 30 years, according to a government report released Thursday. Experts said several factors may be combining to drive the declines, including shifting attitudes about motherhood and changing immigration patterns. The provisional report, based on a review of more than 99 percent of the birth certificates filed nationwide, counted 3.853 million births last year. That’s the lowest tally since 1987. Births have been declining since 2014, but 2017 sa...
