What's Happening Now: This Week In Health News

Every Wednesday, 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!

 

TOP STORY!

  • The burden of birth control typically rests on women, but that may soon be changing. A male contraceptive injection has proven nearly 100% effective at preventing pregnancy in a study. However, there’s a catch: The study was cut short after male participants experienced side effects such as decreased sex drive, mood swings and breakouts. (Never mind that women on birth control grapple with these side effects every day.) By the way, if you want to take control of your hormonal health, Alisa Vitti is your girl.

 

MORE GOOD STUFF…

  • We love dark chocolate for its rich flavor and free-radical-fighting antioxidant power, but sometimes—especially, say, two days after Halloween, post-trick-or-treating—milk chocolate is what we crave. Good news: Scientists are experimenting with upping the antioxidant content of milk chocolate so it’s comparable with the dark stuff. Yes.
  • Proof that you can’t believe everything you read…especially when the likes of Coca-Cola are involved: Published studies funded by the sugary beverage industry are likely to “discover” no link between sugar consumption and poor health. Hmm…
  • If your kids are tired all the time, blame technology. A pediatric study finds use of digital devices like smartphones, computers and tablets at nighttime adversely affects children’s sleep time and quality. We’d venture to guess the effect on adults is similar.
  • An innovative new skin patch may provide relief for people with peanut allergies, according to a new study. The patch works by releasing peanut proteins into the body through the skin, allowing the body to develop a tolerance.
  • Add male fertility to the list of Zika-related health concerns. A study conducted on mice found the virus du jour has a negative effect on sperm count. (Want to support men’s health initiatives this November? Use the code “SAKARAMAN” when ordering a meal delivery program to get a Clean Boutique gift with purchase; we’ll donate a portion of proceeds to the Movember Foundation.)
  • New research takes a closer look at a very serious implication of measles—a fatal neurological disorder that strikes children years after the initial diagnosis, and may be more common than previously believed.
  • A report from UNICEF finds 300 million children worldwide are breathing air that’s toxic due to pollution.
