  4. New Year gongs Film and TV stars and sports people may customarily grab the New Year headlines, but they weren’t the only recipients of New Year’s Honours.

  6. BOSTON (CBS) – Eating a diet rich in omega-3 fatty acids may help reduce the risk of breast cancer in women, but does the source of those good fats matter? Researchers at the University of Guelph, ON, Canada say, “Yes.” They looked at mice predisposed to develop an aggressive type of breast cancer and found that a diet rich in fish-based omega-3 fatty acids was eight times more effective at preventing breast tumor growth than a diet rich in plant-based omega-3s. Plant-based omega-3 fatty acids are found in soy, canola oil, walnuts, and flaxseed. Fish-based omega-3s are found in salmon, tuna, trout and other fatty fish. A lot more research needs to be done on the effect of omega-3 fatty acids on cancer, in general, but this is more reason to eat at least two to three portions of f...
  7. BOSTON (CBS) – Doctors are increasingly concerned about the safety of fidget spinners, which took the world by storm last year. A new report describes two children who were severely injured by swallowing the toys’ lithium button batteries. Doctors from Boston Children’s Hospital agree that the unlabeled batteries in fidget spinners pose a potential danger to kids. These toys are not suitable for young children. Fidget spinners come in different shapes and sizes and pieces can come off, which can be a choking hazard. The ones that light up have tiny lithium batteries inside which if swallowed can cause severe burns to the esophagus, burns so bad they could be deadly. If you’re a parent, keep fidget spinners away from young kids and know that the ones that light up p...
