New ABT approach results in greater weight loss than gold standard treatment, study shows

A new approach to weight loss called Acceptance-Based Behavioral Treatment (ABT) helped people lose more weight and keep it off longer than those who received only Standard Behavioral Treatment (SBT) - a typical treatment plan encouraging reduced caloric intake and increased physical activity - according to a new randomized controlled clinical trial.

Adolescent girls with family breast cancer history do not experience negative psychological effects

Adolescent girls with family breast cancer history do not experience negative psychological effects

More and more girls are expected to have to confront breast cancer fears as modern genomics technology makes it easier to detect strong risk factors such as inherited BRCA1/2 mutations. [More]
Exercise can increase endocannabinoid levels even under chronic sleep loss

Exercise can increase endocannabinoid levels even under chronic sleep loss

A research group at Uppsala University has investigated how levels of endocannabinoids - which target the same receptors as cannabis - are affected by short sleep duration, and whether acute exercise can modulate this effect. [More]
