autism, adhd risk not linked to prenatal exposure to antidepressants


taking antidepressants during pregnancy does not increase the risk of autism or attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder, two new large studies suggest. genetic or environmental influences, rather than prenatal exposure to the drugs, may have a greater influence on whether a child will develop these disorders. the studies are published online april 18 in jama.clinically, the message is “quite reassuring for practitioners and for mothers needing to make a decision about antidepressant use during pregnancy,” says psychiatrist simone vigod, a coauthor of one of the studies. past research has questioned the safety of expectant moms taking antidepressants (sn: 6/5/10, p. 22).“a mother’s mood disturbances during pregnancy are a big public health issue — they impact the health of mother...

plot twist in methane mystery blames chemistry, not emissions, for recent rise


a recent upsurge in planet-warming methane may not be caused by increasing emissions, as previously thought, but by methane lingering longer in the atmosphere.that’s the conclusion of two independent studies that indirectly tracked concentrations of hydroxyl, a highly reactive chemical that rips methane molecules apart. hydroxyl levels in the atmosphere decreased roughly 7 or 8 percent starting in the early 2000s, the studies estimate.the two teams propose that the hydroxyl decline slowed the breakdown of atmospheric methane, boosting levels of the greenhouse gas. concentrations in the atmosphere have crept up since 2007, but during the same period, methane emissions from human activities and natural sources have remained stable or even fallen slightly, both studies suggest. the research..

a daily stroll reduces the risk of erectile dysfunction: study


when it comes to love, some men will walk to the end of the earth to find it. but in a couple of studies from the past, a much shorter 2-mile walk a day is just as effective in retaining good sexual health. the studies demonstrate that if men want to reduce their risk of erectile dysfunction (ed), they should take the time to make this daily trek. the first research is from august of 2000, published in urology. lasting for nine years, the study included 600 men who at the beginning of the research had no issues with ed. the men who kept exercising over the nine years were shown to have a reduction in the incidence of ed. this particular study also showed that quitting smoking, losing weight or reducing alcohol intake did not lessen the risk of ed as effectively as physical...
