  6. (CNN) — Bayer will no longer distribute or sell the Essure permanent birth control device in the United States after December 31, the company said Friday. Essure, the only non-surgical permanent form of birth control for women marketed in the US, is inserted into the fallopian tubes, where scar tissue forms and builds a barrier to block sperm from reaching — and fertilizing — a woman’s eggs. The company’s decision follows the US Food and Drug Administration’s patient safety action in April, when it ordered that sales and distribution of Essure be restricted, FDA Commissioner Dr. Scott Gottlieb said Friday after the Bayer announcement. “The device has been associated with serious risks including persistent pain, perforation of the uterus and fallopi...
  7. July 23, 2018A simple procedure is lowering the risk for thousands of couples in  Tanzania.Twenty-one-year-old Khadija Butemi was doing her morning chores when she heard an announcement through a loudspeaker passing by on the nearby country road.There was a campaign going on, it said, for men who wanted to undergo voluntary medical male circumcision (VMMC). She immediately thought of her husband, a 22-year-old fisherman, who was down by the lake fishing.The couple lives with their two-year-old daughter in Nansio, a remote village on the island of Ukerewe, Tanzania. VMMC isn ’t routinely offered in the area, and Khadija was surprised to hear about its benefits—including the fact that it reduces the risk of HIV and other sexually transmitted infections (STIs).This hit close to home. For...
  8. BOSTON (CBS) — Many college students who don’t have ADHD illegally use ADHD medications, like Adderall and Ritalin, to try to boost their performance in school. But is that a smart way to go? Probably not, according to a new study from the University of Rhode Island and Brown University. Researchers looked at 13 undergrads and found that Adderall did improve attention and focus but that did not result in better performance of tests. The drug also appeared to impair working memory. This was a very small study so more research is needed, but in the meantime, students who don’t have ADHD should be discouraged from taking these drugs.

  9. BOSTON (CBS) — If you feel like your doctor doesn’t really listen to you, you may be right. A new study analyzed 112 doctor-patient encounters at general practices including at the Mayo Clinic and found that physicians only spend about 11 seconds on average listening to patients before interrupting them. A lot of doctors are under time constraints which often means they want to get to the heart of the matter as quickly as possible. But it can off-putting if a patient is trying to get something off their chest and a doctor stops them mid-sentence soon after they enter the room. Doctors need to be more mindful of this and should let a patient say their piece before jumping in. In the end, it’s better for patient care and satisfaction.
