What's Happening Now: The Top Must Reads This Week in Health + Wellness

Every week, The S-Life Mag will make sure you’re in the know about the latest scientific studies and current events pertaining to health, wellness, nutrition and more. This is the stuff you need to know for your body, mind and soul!

 

~ After stirring up a whole lot of controversy last week for cranking up the price of life-saving EpiPens, drugmaker Mylan has decided to offer a generic version at a more affordable price point.

~ Fun fact: Your coffee addiction might be genetic!

~ Scientists are doubling down on the assertion that obesity can increase your cancer risk. 

~ Another score for Team Healthy Fats! (Side note: We should totally get t-shirts made.) Following a Mediterranean diet, rich in fresh veggies, whole grains, nuts and seeds, may be even better for heart health than prescription statins.

~ Amid swirling misinformation, a survey finds more and more parents are questioning the necessity of vaccinating their children.

~ Researchers may be close to developing a vaccine for Zika using existing drugs. In related news, the FDA has declared that all donated blood should be screened for the disease.

~ Unfortunately, it seems treatment for depression in America is going to the wrong places. A study found most people who need help don’t get it, while many people are taking prescription medication for depression when they don’t actually have it. On that note, Hillary Clinton’s recently revealed proposal to reform mental health care in the U.S. couldn’t come at a better time (oh yeah, we’re with her).

~ You might feel healthy enough to get back in the proverbial game after suffering a concussion, but the injury isn’t to be taken lightly. According to research, athletes who stop playing immediately after a concussion recover in half the time as those who keep playing.

~ Earlier this year, research called into question the necessity of folic acid during pregnancy, suggesting that an excess of the nutrient may even be linked to autism. A more recent study swings back the other way, claiming folic acid could lower your risk of having a baby with heart defects.
