From MedPage Today:
- MRI No Help for Breast Cancer Recurrence After DCIS. Perioperative MRI did not reduce the risk of breast cancer recurrence after treatment of ductal carcinoma in situ (DCIS).
- Warnings on Packs Deter Kids From Smoking. The addition of graphic warnings on cigarette packs were more likely to discourage teens from smoking than when warnings were text-only, but did little to dissuade teens who were already regular smokers.
- Antidepressants Have No Effect on Bone Loss. The use of selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs) or tricyclic antidepressants among women in midlife didn’t lead to a greater rate of bone loss.
- Yelling at Teens Won’t Fix Bad Behavior. Parents who yell, insult, or swear in an effort to correct bad behavior may perpetuate the behavior and increase a child’s risk for depression.
