Today's Globe: painkillers and heart disease, exercise and breast cancer, narcissistic students, garlic
Popular painkillers such as aspirin, ibuprofen, and acetaminophen can raise blood pressure and thus the risk of heart disease among men, researchers led by Dr. John Forman of Brigham and Women's Hospital reported yesterday.
Exercising for five or more hours a week throughout life can cut a woman's risk of breast cancer by more than half, researchers at the University of Southern California, Los Angeles, said.
Today's college students are more narcissistic and self-centered than their predecessors, according to a comprehensive new study by five psychologists at San Diego State University who worry that the trend could be harmful to personal relationships and American society.
Garlic doesn't do much for the breath and it stinks for lowering cholesterol. That's the conclusion of the most rigorous study of raw garlic and garlic supplements, despite promoters' claims to the contrary, Stanford researchers say.
