Resistance can spread even without the use of antibiotics

Antibiotic resistance does not spread only where and when antibiotics are used in large quantities, ETH researchers conclude from laboratory experiments. Reducing antibiotic use alone is therefore not sufficient to curtail resistance, and should be done in conjunction with measures to prevent infection with resistant germs. Bacteria are becoming increasingly resistant to common antibiotics. Often,

Even slightly elevated blood pressure early in pregnancy a bad sign

Even a small increase in blood pressure during your first trimester could spell bigger trouble later in your pregnancy, new research suggests. Those troubles can include gestational high blood pressure, which develops after the 20th week of pregnancy, and preeclampsia (high blood pressure and protein in the urine), the researchers explained. Both conditions increase the

Exercise makes even the ‘still overweight’ healthier: study

(HealthDay)—Heavyset folks who exercise regularly shouldn’t get discouraged if they can’t seem to shed more weight, no matter how hard they try. A new study suggests that their regular workouts are still contributing to better overall heart health, making them “fat but fit” and helping them live longer. People who are obese-but-fit have lower resting

Even toddlers weigh risks, rewards when making choices

Every day, adults conduct cost-benefit analyses in some form for decisions large and small, economic and personal: Bring a lunch or go out? Buy or rent? Remain single or start a family? All are balances of risk and reward. According to psychologists, infants weigh risks and rewards, too, but appear to boil down their decision-making

Even a small amount of medical debt can trigger headaches

It doesn’t take a huge unpaid medical bill to make a collection agency come calling … and calling. Researchers found in a study of credit reports that more than 2 percent of adults had medical bills under $200 sent to a collections agency. Over half of the annual medical collections were for less than $600,

Hope for peanut allergies? Pills, patches, drops and even nuts themselves are being studied

Every year, Americans make 30,000 emergency room visits because of food allergies, according to the Food and Drug Administration. Even touching a surface that previously held peanuts can trigger anaphylaxis, a life-threatening allergic reaction. When a peanut-allergic person starts feeling their throat close up, they stab themselves with an epinephrine, or adrenaline, device and then

8 Ways You're Staining Your Teeth Without Even Knowing It

Feel like no matter how often you brush your teeth, they still look anything but white? While you know that coffee, soft drinks, berries, soy sauce, balsamic vinegar, and red wine (*sob*) will all change the color of your chompers, they aren’t the only culprits. Here are nine sneaky teeth-stainers: 1. Lemonade While it may

Baby nicknames that make even better names

While long, stately names certainly carry a certain amount of clout, they’re also a lot to saddle a baby with. You’re probably not going to call an infant by a long-winded moniker like Alexander or Samantha anyway, and are most likely going opt for shorter variations like Alex and Sam. So why bother giving your

Even short travel can spread colistin-resistant bacteria

The emergence of antibiotic resistance among dangerous pathogens is increasingly problematic worldwide. Many strains of infectious bacteria have become multidrug-resistant, and cannot be treated with common antibiotic therapies. While the antibiotic colistin can often be used to treat infections by multidrug-resistant bacteria, colistin resistance is also on the rise and represents an emerging global health
