Buddy, Can You Spare a Trillion Dollars? The Cost of Veteran Health Care
"Are you a Vietnam veteran?" I asked "Stan," an auto mechanic I'd met a few minutes earlier in the course of a routine car checkup. He nodded affirmatively. Ten years of working at the Veterans Stress Project have given me a sense of how veterans move, act and think. They can often identify each other in seconds. The signs of psychological traumatization are often apparent, and rarely get better over time. Combat can affect people decades later. That message is reinforced by a study published recently in a prestigious psychiatry journal. The investigators found that the psychological effects of the Vietnam War are still p...

5 things to know about teens and depression
How does depression impact children and teens?   Depression impacts many youth and families across the U.S. Up to 28% of young people experience an episode of major depression by age 19 with an average onset age of 13 years old. However, only 38% of teens experiencing depression receive treatment. Raising awareness is a key step to addressing depression. Depression is treatable, and early detection and treatment are effective. With increased awareness and early intervention efforts, both teens and adults can learn to identify the signs of depression and get help sooner. Left untreated, depression can lead to deterior...

Weird Things Happen When You Stare Into Someone's Eyes For 10 Minutes
Staring into someone's eyes for as little as 10 seconds can be an intense experience of connection, or one of discomfort.  So what happens when you look into a person's eyes for 10 minutes?  Well, things can get weird. Really weird.  A new Italian study finds that when people look into each other's eyes for a long period of time, they often experience symptoms of dissociation -- including feelings of detachment from one's body and from reality -- and full-on hallucinations.  For the study, 20 healthy young adult volunteers were paired up and asked to stare, emotionless, into each others' eyes ...

Many white English and Irish pensioners 'drinking to excess'
ConclusionThis cross-sectional study found that in the over-65s in an inner city area in London (Lambeth), people were more likely to drink alcohol if they are male, in the younger age bracket and of Irish ethnicity. These factors and less socioeconomic deprivation were also predictors of unsafe drinking levels in those who drank.The findings of this study are important, as they could help to identify people at risk of alcohol-related conditions and provide them with support to reduce their consumption.However, the study has some limitations. These include a reliance on data recorded by GP services – in particular, sel...

Second Cancers Are On The Rise
Second cancers are on the rise. Nearly 1 in 5 new cases in the U.S. now involves someone who has had the disease before. When doctors talk about second cancers, they mean a different tissue type or a different site, not a recurrence or spread of the original tumor. Judith Bernstein of suburban Philadelphia is an extreme example. She has had eight types over the last two decades, all treated successfully. “There was a while when I was getting one cancer diagnosis after another,” including breast, lung, esophageal, and the latest — a rare tumor of her eyelids, she said. “At one point I thought I had cance...

Brains of abused teenagers show 'encouraging' ability to regulate emotions
(Elsevier) Children who have been abused typically experience more intense emotions than their peers who have not been abused. This is often considered a byproduct of living in volatile, dangerous environments. A recent study published in the Journal of the American Academy of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry set to find out what happens when these children are taught how to regulate their emotions. Could that better help them cope with difficult situations? (Source: EurekAlert! - Social and Behavioral Science)

Male or female? It's not always so simple
“It’s not just black or white” is an adage heard so often that it borders on cliché. It underscores life’s complexities; wherever a gray area exists between two opposing endpoints, it asks us to consider the diverse realities and experiences that make life both more interesting yet harder to comprehend. When it comes to sex and gender, that “gray area” remains murky and mysterious — often undiscussed and even taboo. At UCLA, however, and elsewhere in the small but growing field of sex and gender biology, science is shedding light on this unfamiliar terrain. UCLA Dr. Eric Vilain People often are unaware of ...
