A report in the New England Journal of Medicine adds eight more kinds of cancer to the list of those already known to be more likely among overweight people. In 2002, the World Health Organization&#039;s International Agency for Cancer on Research (IARC), based in France, said excess pounds could raise the risk of colon, esophagus, kidney, breast and uterine cancer.</p><br clear="all"/>

Growing up, &quot;Adam&quot; (Jefee-Bahloul identifies the boy as Adam for his safety) had been irritable and nervous even before the crisis, but when the violence started, his mental health started to deteriorate further. &quot;While being seen and treated with some medications, he developed adverse reactions and got more restless,&quot; Jefee-Bahloul said of Adam.</p><br clear="all"/>

Over 14,000 women took Sanofi epilepsy drug despite fetus risk: ministry
More than 14,000 pregnant women in France took Sanofi's anti-epilepsy drug Depakine between 2007 and 2014 even though the risk of fetus malformation was known, according to a study released by France on Wednesday. Health Minister Marisol Touraine said in a statement that a second part of the study, yet to be released, would focus on the impact on children whose mothers took the drug. Its active ingredient is sodium valproate and it has been sold under different brand names.

Gum disease linked to heart disease
By Carolyn Crist (Reuters Health) - A report from The Netherlands adds to the evidence tying chronic gum disease to heart disease and stroke. In a study of more than 60,000 dental patients, those with gum disease were twice as likely to have had a heart attack, stroke or severe chest pain. Previous studies have linked periodontitis and clogged arteries, but this is the first to investigate the link in a group of people this large, the researchers say.

Heavy lifting by young workers linked to low back pain in midlife
By Linda Thrasybule (Reuters Health) - Young adults with jobs that involve heavy lifting and forceful movements might be at higher risk for back pain later in life, a study from Finland suggests. “When you’re young, you do things your own way, you muscle your way through it, but sooner or later, that behavior can cause problems,” said Michael Timko, a physical therapist and instructor at the University of Pittsburgh who was not involved with the study. “If we’re going to put a dent on the back pain issue, we should consider training younger people about basic body mechanics like how to lift and load and how to sit properly,” he told Reuters Health by phone.
